What is a Paper Craft Trail?
A Paper Craft Trail is a unique initiative by 3 north side paper craft store owners to share their businesses and hobbies with you twice a year.
The stores work together with their suppliers, teachers and staff to provide free demonstrations, make and takes and samples to inspire and educate others.
It is your chance to see how products work, meet the teachers, have a look around and have a go at some of the free make and takes.
Who can go to a Paper Craft Trail?
Anyone can come, it is completely free (until of course you find something you must have) and it is always more fun with friends. You can make a day of it and visit all 3 stores or choose to visit just 1 or 2, it’s completely up to you. Sometimes you might find yourself engulfed in inspiration and delight at just one store for hours, that’s okay too.
What goes on behind the doors of a scrapbook store?
This is a chance to find out….it’s kind of like an open house where all the fun that goes on behind closed doors and in class rooms comes into the middle of the shop and happens where you can see it and touch it.
There are also some great prizes offered by the stores throughout the day and at the conclusion of the event so as they say “you have to be in it to win it”!
Hopefully we will see you there.

Basic mixed media background with texture paste, stencils and ink.
This week’s $5 make and take allows you to explore the basic techniques of applying texture paste through stencils before applying a range of colours to create a fun birthday card.
We will also look at and talk about the difference when applying coloured pastes through your stencils and the different look this gives rather than applying the ink afterwards.
If you’ve wondered how to use stencils, texture paste or just apply ink with blending tools, this is a great little project to have a go at.
Wednesday ~ 10.00am – 10.30am
Thursday ~ 1.00pm – 1.30pm
Friday ~ 10.00am – 10.30am
Please help us by booking in advance where possible.

This upcoming week we will be having $5 make and takes on
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 2pm each day.
Here is a sample of one of the many options available to make.
You can even make a Valentines option with lovey dovey words if you have someone to love!
If you would like to join us, phone the shop on 3851 2200 to book a spot or check if there is a spare place when you pop if, like me, planning ahead is a bit of a funny joke.
Hope to see you there,
Have a wonderful weekend and try to stay cool.
