This Week at Stamp and Scrapbook Madness

There have been plenty of new arrivals in-store in the past week. We have had over 100 new patterned papers arrive including some brand new brands. “Scrap Within Reach” is a new patterned paper company and they have some fabulous double sided papers which would have to be my favourites at the moment. Also to arrive in-store are some beautiful Christmas ranges from Bo Bunny, Making Memories and Flair Designs. These include some stunning glitter and die-cut papers. Other papers to arrive are some Melissa Frances and Piggy Tales. Moving fast since we unpacked them are our range of American Crafts Thickers. These are some of the most popular alphas on the market and are flying off the shelves.

To make way for all these new paper ranges we have had to make some space. We have moved a heap of patterned papers into our 50c and 80c sale bins as well as a huge range of A4 papers now priced at only 25c We also have a large number of A4 paper trays for sale at only $3 each.

Cuttlebug Special Offer

The Cuttlebug continues to be one of our most popular products. For those of you who missed out on our previous special we have a new Cuttlebug offer for the month of September. Until September 30 you can buy a Cuttlebug for $125 including your choice from a range of embossing folders. The range includes popular folders such as Swiss dots, birds and swirls, floral fantasy and even some of the new Christmas folders too! We have a huge range of classes that feature the Cuttlebug to show you how to get even more out of your machine or to give you a chance to have a “play” before you decide to buy. We are also happy to give you an in-store demonstration any time we are free.

We are in the process of moving our website. A fresh new look will soon be up and running, shortly followed by an online shop. In the meantime if you experience any problem with the website please let us know. If you have any difficulties downloading the class schedule or newsletter, we can email one directly to you.

School Holiday Classes

School holidays start this weekend and we have a range of kids classes running over the 2 week holiday period. These classes run for two hours and give you a short break while we get your kids’ creative juices flowing. We supply everything they need to either make a great set of cards and giftbox or a fabulous photo frame.Kids Class Cards

Thanks for the great pictures and ideas for the cards. I will try harder to make a class as I can see that they are full of new ideas. Thanks for new inspiration.
