This Week at Stamp and Scrapbook Madness

This week at Stamp and Scrapbook Madness.

Firstly thank you to everyone who has dropped by the blog. There will be lost of other little things posted here apart from the newsletter - products coming soon, layout and project ideas and lots of handy hints and tips. Keep you eye out for random prizes too!! Also please feel free to leave a comment or suggestion here  -  your input is always welcome and appreciated. Don't forget to leave a comment by Midnight tonight (Monday 6 Oct) to go in the draw to win the stamp set!! See previous blog post for more information


What's New In Store

We have had plenty of new arrivals this week. Two new Sassafrass Lass lines came in; Happy Place and Hog Heaven. These papers are incredibly cute and given how quickly they sold on the weekend they won't last long. We also received the Teresa Collins Christmas Line which has bold strong designs which makes it quite different from a lot of the vintage coloured papers that seem to be everywhere. There are also some cute cooking themed papers from Teresa Collins too! 

Back in Stock

Christmas Cuttlebug Dies and Embossing folders. These Christmas sets sold out in one day when they first arrived. Finally I have received some more!! I also have some of the Embossing Folder storage sheets.

Sunday Session

A Sunday session had been scheduled for this Sunday  October 12, however I have had to re-schedule this day to a new date due to family commitments. If you are interested to coming along to our all day session where we enjoy extensive crop time, mini classes and prizes and competitions, let me know and I will be back in contact shortly with a new date!


Crop Night

We are having a crop night on Friday 31 October - Halloween! For $5 come along and get some uninterrupted craft time and use of our tools. There will also been some Halloween treats in store!!!


Night Class Next Week

We have another evening class running next Tuesday 14 October. The layout for this class is Photo Folio. This layout incorporates a small folio that can hold extra images, or journalling. You will also learn some paper layering techniques as well as how to create your own paper ties.

Thursday 9 Oct 10am-1pm - Star Album

This album is simply stunning! Make it to give as a gift to give this Christmas, or even better - keep it for yourself and fill it with favourite pictures. This is a three hour class to give you time to complete the project and add all your embellishments.
