NEW Jo Sonja Paints

Posted in Companies We Love, Email Us, new stock, stock at 6:52 am by scrapbookdesigns

Yummy new paints have just arrived from Jo Sonja.  These acrylic paints are fantastic for background techniques.  Dry brushing lighter colours on dark cardstocks gives you an excellent base to stamp on and they are fantastic for using with solid stamps and foam alphabet stamps too.  Of course they go hand in hand with the high quality Westart canvases we now stock.  We have just taken delivery of a new shipment of canvases too including the very popular 8″ x 8″ size.  The jo sonja paints are only $3.95 each and have divine colours such as cornflower, claret rose, raindrops and mustard seeds – good enough to eat, hehe!!!

happy Australia Day!

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:24 am by scrapbookdesigns

Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We’ll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

Oh oh oh…tagalicious don’t you agree

Posted in ideas, kids parties, projects, Reviews, samples at 6:52 am by scrapbookdesigns

Inspiration is never ending and below are some thumbnails of gorgeous name tags that our very talented teacher Susan Keymer has made for class participants and store displays over the last little while.

 The great thing about tags is the fact that they can be used in a multitude of ways.  Not only are they great for name tags (thanks Susan for always thinking of the staff and making us all interesting and unique name tags!!) but they can be used on your layouts, on card fronts and other fantastic ideas.  Why not include them in your next party event? You can cut them with a back so they stand up as named place settings, attach them to kids lolly bags or for name tags for events where people don’t know each other.  They can be themed or colour co-ordinated for that special touch, personlised with alphabet stamps or written on. Why not add them inside ready made pockets on your project.  If you are into book making then they are ideal to place so that they can be pulled out from the top or the side of the book.  The use for tags is endless and the best bit is that you can get rid of all those scraps you have been saving! Click on each thumbnail for an upclose look at Susan’s wonderful work and be inspired!
