Hi Ladies

I am sending this email to advise you all that I have made the decision to close the business.....   Please take the time to read this email as it does contain further detail about subscription's / gift vouchers etc.

After a successful 4.5 years, I feel it is time for me to move on, in recent months, as a family we have experienced many personal challenges which have prompted me to reflect on our life, I have been guided towards  a new path and now is the time for me to embrace our future. 

I will be making a clean break from the Scrapbooking and Papercraft industry as a retailer, making more time to continue the hobby I love, recording and journalling my and my family's history, no doubt I will bump into 1 or 2 of you in another one of our beautiful Scrapbooking shops around the state, I am confident the addiction is still here !! hahaha.

I could not have had as much  fun, or come as far as I have without you my customer, so I would like to thank you. I have made many friendships and have grown fond of many of you.

Starting from 9.30am Friday 28th January  we will be OPEN Until 8 pm ! .
*with the exception of  already reduced items, fittings, pre loved items, and February release Kaisercraft 

New February release Kaisercraft  Magic Happen's, Timeless, Paper Blooms & Class of 87 are not included in the 35% off sale.

We must also sell all SHOP FITTINGS, as I will be giving back an empty shell to the landlord, if you know of anyone that may be interested in any please let them know.  
   PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CANNOT RELEASE ALL SHOP FITTINGS IMMEDIATELY, a 50% non refundable deposit  will secure your purchase . First in best dressed. !

Rising Waters QLD

We have joined in on the Rising Waters QLD appeal to create a page for families affected in the floods.
If anybody took part in the Vic drive, you will recall, it was to create a layout that could easily have a picture added.
Further info can be found at

You can drop your completed layouts off at the shop and we will send them on as a combined effort.

In a few weeks I will be scheduling a day of scrapping where you can come along and complete some layouts, we will supply you with some quick effective idea layouts, and provide the product, you will need to make a payment to cover the materials and a donation towards the appeal.  We do not aim to make a profit from this, all monies collected will be forwarded to the appeal, once material costs have been removed.

Let's all pull together SA just like we always do, we can do it again !

Take care and thinking of you all.
