We thought you might like to have a look so here’s some pics to help you see what we’ve been up to. 
Remember we will be popping up to Toowoomba Carnival of Crafts on Sunday 28th April 10am – 2pm with a pop up shop at the Showgrounds to say thanks to all our hill folk friends who have visited us and to hopefully meet lots more.

Be Merry, bling cards, card kits, Couture Creations, Monochromatic cards


If you like the look of monochromatics for Christmas but still want a touch of classic,
try this kit created by Sharon Bernardi.   It uses the  beautiful Couture Creations Be Merry monochromatic range with reversible papers so you choose the lighter or darker pattern, and combines it with a perfect hint of red.
For only $40.00 this kit comes with full cutting guide, some step by step pics to help with fussy bits, a full 6×6 paper pad, full ephemera pack, full pack of adhesive rhinestones, coloured lace flower, die cuts, flowers, pearl cabochon and more.  
Perfect to take on the road as you only need a small trimmer and adhesives to complete it.
Best of all, when you’ve made these 9 cards, you’ll have enough paper  and ephemera to make another 9 just by adding your own embellishments.
 Sometimes a touch of bling is all you need and since we now carry it in continuous lengths in 4 different sizes at a price all of us can afford.
At only $3.50 / metre, this bling adds a special touch of class and elegance to any project.  
 Combine lengths of bling with adhesive rhinestones on your die cuts and you’ve got a winning combination.

 Die cuts in red glitter and red cardstock have been added to these cards to tie the colour in.  If you have flowers that don’t have silver centres, hold back the petals and colour them with a pen or some ink from an inkpad refill by using a fine brush.

And of course, tiny bows with fine satin held add some texture and tie your matting colour in perfectly.
Hope you’re getting all your Christmas cards achieved ~ Unlike some of us!

Birthday week, Celebr8, Celebrations, Colour Blast, Couture Creations, Smart Pups, The Pyjama Foundation


Our 7th Birthday celebrations for the shop have begun and 50 VIP customers helped us celebrate Saturday afternoon along with some fabulous demonstrators, tutors and volunteers.  Thanks to all the staff who helped make the day so special and worked tirelessly all week.
Gayle and Sharon rocked their wearable art pieces.  Congratulations to Beverley Teske and Kathleen Young who both won wearable art prizes. 
 How amazing are all the samples from Colour Blast???

 Thanks to Tenisha Furlong from Colour Blast for demonstrating the  shimmer cubes and everything else all afternoon.  Love those colours.

 This was Louise Turner’s make and take table before everybody got creative.

 Raffle prizes
 Good Vibes layout kit by Kerrie Gurney,  sold out currently but more stock arriving soon.  Complete with colour instructions and available with mixed media components or without.

 Despite suffering from a terrible sinus infection, Deb still shared all her magic with water colouring, and dusting ~ thanks for battling through Deb.  Feel better soon. xo

 Sharon’s demo table before she destroyed it and made the biggest mess on the floor – as always.

 Congratulation to Anne and Nettie for winning our major Lucky Door Prizes.  So sorry we made you cry Anne but very happy the Go Press and Foil is going to a home where it is so loved already.   Nettie had left before her prize was drawn so she is in for a surprise Tuesday when she comes to class… shhhhh let’s surprise her.
 Miss Kerrie, these flowers are nearly as bright and beautiful as you.  Thanks for risking everything to bring back our Celebr8 products to share with everyone.  It is much appreciated.
 Sienna is just 9 years old and bakes all these amazing cupcakes herself and decorates them.  As if that wasn’t enough, she donated 10% of all profits to a small school in Africa.  Well done Judy on raising such a thoughtful and talented daughter and thanks to Paige for helping her yesterday.

 Here is one of our smart pups who attended to share his skills (mainly doing the splits and being more flexible than all of us) and Dayle his handler.  Thanks to Jane and Jack also.  You were all so well behaved – hehehe.
 Well done Rachel – not bad for a newbie!  Glad you had fun.  
 Miss Kerrie and her bestie Bez posing with their Forever Friends layouts.
