The gorgeous Yvette Fanciulli has designed some fresh and fun new layout kits for us.

Each one includes a little bit of mixed media so if you’re not a fan or just haven’t tried it before, these are a great introduction to trying a little bit of mixed media on your pages.

They come with instructions and full colour photos so you can create them how they were designed or design your own page with the elements in the kit.  You can always add some bits out of your own stash too.

This is a double page layout kit featuring the beautiful Winter Rose collection from Uniquely Creative.  All the beautiful frames are cut for you from Uniquely Creative’s new Rose Gold cardstock and using new frame dies from Uniquely Creative.

You have to love layout kits that allow you the option to pop lots of pics on the page to tell the whole story.  This layout does just that and it is embellished with beautiful hand coloured floral elements from a Uniquely Creative cut and colour cut apart sheet.  The kit also includes a full pack of the large matt board words from Celebr8 and these are coloured to add lots of fabulous punch to the page.

How fun is this page and there are so many things you can do with these versatile little elements.  We have included a second sheet of paper and additional titles so you can easily turn this into a double page layout if you wish.

The simplicity and vibrancy of this page make any photo pop  when you frame it with the panels provided.  Add the Celebr8 matt board flourishes, title  and butterflies and you will have a beautiful fun layout perfect for any photo.  Change your inking colour to suit your photo or your favourite colour.

We see layouts like this all the time but going to the effort of actually cutting all the circles often puts us off actually doing it.  Well it’s done for you in this kit and all the thinking about what patterns and what colours to put where is also done for you.  That doesn’t mean to say you can’t change it up however you like but it’s a great start to get you motivated.  Again, it features some Celebr8 matt board which gives such a fabulous circle frame with flourished floral effects, it’s just  so much fun!!!
This was meant to be a class Yvette would share with you all last month however given the virus, we had to kit it so you get even more options.  All the die cutting is done for you.  We have included one page of watercolour with texture paste already on it if you want to use that or don’t have paste or there is a blank page of watercolour card you can create your own stencilling on.
Your kit also includes a mini mark making stamp or a voucher so you can pick your own from the shelves in store.

Look how much is in your kit!!!!

I just love a splash of hot pink every now and again and when it’s paired with all these beautiful shades of pink and those gorgeous monstera leaves, it’s just a winning combination.
You even get some extra bits to create a matching card if you like or again you could use these bits to make a matching page if you’d prefer.
We hope you like these kits as much as we do and look forward to seeing your creations.

We will have these on our kit page very soon!!!

Remember we are open today Saturday 23rd May and tomorrow Sunday 24th May 10am – 2pm.

Come on in and say hello.

brisbane northside craft, purrfect, scrapbook teenagers, teenage boys, true north, uniquely creative, you're weird


Uniquely Creative have some fabulous releases lately including two mini stamp and colour kits
and we have loads in store for you.

TRUE NORTH is a beautifully sophisticated range perfect for all age groups especially males.

It fits that teenage style perfectly but is so open ended.  Whether it’s cards or layouts, you will find some awesome inspiration on the Uniquely Creative Blog.

The PURRFECT collection is obviously focused on all things feline and 
is perfect for all your cat loving friends.
 And if that still doesn’t give you something perfect for your family or friends, then it’s time to call in the big guns and go with YOU’RE WEIRD!!!!  It says it all!!!!

This month’s collection features platypus or Ornithorhynchus if you want to sound intelligent
and in many of the samples it features a 3 window frame die which we have in stock also.
You can buy the stamps and dies separately or grab the mini kit and add on the dies – it’s great value this way and you get loads of extra bits.

Hope you find something you like, Karenina and the team.

Happy Sunday everyone!!!
If you haven’t visited one of Brisbane’s fabulous scrapbooking, papercraft and mixed media stores, we invite you to come and have a look around.
The store is under the new management of Karenina Maitland Taylor and is alive with new opportunities, exciting events and familiar staff you have come to know and trust to guide you.
We often have people visit who are surprised at the size of the store after entering the front door.
The view from the street doesn’t do justice to the amount of space we have inside and after visiting stores across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia, I can honestly say that A Place to Create is one of the largest and best stocked stores in the country.
Despite having 5 rooms of stock, we still have a small class area which can be used for smaller classes and scrap and chats but we also have a very large air conditioned space.  
This new air conditioned space and comfort has allowed us to expand our class options for 2020 as well as invite talented teachers to share their passion with you.

We will also be hiring this room  out this year so if you have a group (be it craft or otherwise) and need a large air conditioned space for whatever it is you want to do, please enquire with Karenina on 3851 2200 or email info@aplacetocreate.com.au

Last weekend we saw the gorgeous Erin Bruton from Celebr8 South Africa and 
Jenny Heaslip from Celebr8 Australia, entertain 100 ladies.
Next weekend on Saturday 22nd February, sees the vibrant Yvette Fanciulli join us to get messy and colourful with Uniquely Creative and Dylusions products in a class open to both scrapbookers and card makers alike.
On March 14th, the space will transform into one of Brisbane’s biggest craft de-stash sales where crafters will offload their unwanted crafting materials and shoppers will revel in the wonderous finds and bargains to be had.
Join our event on facebook to stay updated and be reminded so you don’t miss out.
On the last weekend of March, another local talent, Michelle Grant joins us for 3 fabulous class opportunities.  Saturday 28th March will see participants partake in a full day of mixed media mayhem exploring many techniques with mixed media elements. 
Whether you are a card maker or scrapbooker, the techniques remain the same – just the size changes so this class is a must for anyone wanting an introduction to mixed media or try new techniques.
Sunday will consist of 2 classes and you can stay updated by joining the event on Facebook.
All the details for upcoming classes can be found on our Classes / Events tab and some can also be found on Facebook Events which you can join to stay updated.
Thanks so much for joining us here and we hope to see you in store really soon as your custom and support is what allows us to stay open – supporting small businesses and bricks and mortar stores is becoming increasingly important in this digital age.  
Have a wonderful Sunday and do visit us soon.
