Christmas in August?

So excited every day,

lots of yummy stuff coming in and it is filling the shop to the brim.

Today we got a delivery from Couture Creations, Embossed paper supplies, Luci-clear and a few others….

And our new range of Australian Made resin. We have been negotiating with Luci-Clear for a while now, and we decided to bite the bullet and try the casting resin and the Art Resin to see how they come out. Each has a slightly different formula to make each project work

Want to take a Daydream?

Good Day to you all,

Another wonderful day to be alive, Yvonne and I have been “locked away” in the shop creating some amazing things, well Yvonne has been creating, I have been providing cups of tea for her!

Here you will see the amazing album that Yvonne created using the Daydream range from Cocoa Vanilla , and as you may see by my video skills that even I was surprised whith every page, and really wanted to stop recording and have a look at it, I am constastantly amazed at what Yvonne comes up with.

What Day is it?

Maaaa! what Day is it?

Well here we are on day, not sure, of the lockdown and we have, cant remember. days left before we are able to slowly get back on track.

Looking down the main street of where our retail shop is there are actually car parks.

During the time we cant do our lessons Yvonne & I (well mainly Yvonne!) have been doing heaps of design stuff, she has created a few layouts for kits using our great local suppliers and designers.

Studio 73 is one, and I love seeing the different ideas coming out from them.

We spoke with Couture Creations this morning, they are in Queensland and are out of lockdown, we are getting a nice range of their Alcohol inks in stock.

Today we got another shipment from House of paper, some nice burgundy, champagne, and lots of other colours of plain cardstock.

Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page, Yvonne has a nice video on there of one of her albums

Better go and make another cuppa for the artist!

Masks on a Wednesday

Morning all, another day and another mask if you need to go and and gather the essentials!

We have just got some longer ear savers for your masks in, well, they are printed here on our 3D printers! they are still $2 each and we can deliver them for you or let us know for click and collect, isn’t it amazing that this phrase is now common?

We are using the downtime to re-arrange the shop and set up our system that intergrates with the website. The biggest problem we have had is that the tap on the urn broke, so we have to use the little kettle again, lucky we can’t do classes it would take me hours to make the cuppas!

Well back to it

Keep safe, and craft!

Lockdown August

Well what an interesting few weeks, Gary is “trapped” in Brisbane under lock-down rules, Yvonne has been kept company in the shop with all our amazing customers coming in, wearing masks.

There was a funny post the other day with someones grandma wanting to know where to send all the QR codes she has taken photos of….. sort of makes sense, maybe a new layout idea

Of course this particular blog is to test the facebook lings to our blog, all the experts say we should do more blogs and get our website going so we can keep going and to share Sensational Crafts with the world!

While Gary was in Brisbane a few weeks ago he picked up an order from Studio73 and had a very long chat about all thinks crafty and webby! here is one of the beautiful layouts from Hetty Hall using Studio 73 items. you amaze us all the time!

The new collection from Uniquely Creative.

Uniquely Creative have released their latest range, Drive & Fly! here is the link to the YouTube video https://youtu.be/7rUJ_tOQS3U, I am sure there is a way to do a link, but I am not sure how to.

It is great to see a variety with a Holden, a fighter plane and some fella stuff, I won’t spoil it too much, click on the link to look at it

Gary is in QLD with some of the Grand-kids, and has been caught up in the lock down, so I have sorted the shop a bit to fit the Individual items in and now the Kits have arrived!
