Goodbye and Hello

You can now find me over here

My new address is

I have had an awesome time with All Things Paper and it is sad to say goodbye. As each door closes, another door opens though, and I am very excited to start another venture.

Family Stories

family stories collage

Back from two weeks’ holiday, I am excited to release today’s kit!

When I saw this range Family Stories from Teresa Collins, I must admit, I didn’t see how I could work with it. Rachel Lowe however was very excited to be getting her hands on it and has designed five stunning pages!

This kit has three single pages and a double which features four photos! Rachel has gone way out of her comfort zone, with multiple photos in both black a white and colour and the result is fantastic!

I love this kit so much that I have even completed it myself, and I can tell you that I easily created two more layouts with my left overs. I love the use of sequins, the colour palette of red, white, grey, aqua and pink,  and the packet of envelopes for secret journaling. I am a great lover of secret messages hidden on pages for family members to enjoy. Remembering that the essence of scrapbooking is the “Telling of the Story”.

This kit is now available in our online store.

Tomorrow I will be releasing sneak peeks of the kit being released for our Saturday crop at Joondalup, featuring a lovely new designer.

After a FUN! FUN! FUN! three days at the Swanleigh Conference Centre on our Scrapbooking and Card making Retreat, the shop cupboard is almost bare!

My family is home today so after unpacking the car between rain showers, we are off for some ten pin bowling.

I have updated the kits section of the online store but I will update more carefully tomorrow. the only other kit not uploaded to the store which was released at the Retreat is the Serenade kit. There are two available and the details are in the previous blog post. if you would like to order one online, please text me or send a contact enquiry through the online store and I will organise it tomorrow.

Thank you to all of the ladies who made our Retreat so much fun. With games like “where is Wally?” and “who the flip is Alice?” I have not laughed or danced so hard in so long.

Dates for upcoming crops are:

Freo Friday night is this Friday night from 6pm – midnight

September crops – Joondalup all day crop 21st September

– Freo Friday night 20th September

– Freo all day crop 28th September (if interest is high enough given it is the AFL Grand Final)

Payment buttons will be uploaded onto the website tomorrow.

Remember that I am taking two weeks leave commencing September 1st and there will be no online orders processed during this time.
