As I said earlier, Studio 73 are branching out with their embellishments! The Flowers & Blooms range is exactly that- beautiful flowers. In the coming months, it is hoped that this range will continue to grow and grow. The flowers are all handmade and are made from mulberry paper.

Both of these Christmas collections are available for purchase now. If you wish for me to order some stock in, please let me know as I will get it in as soon as possible.
Some exciting news last month- I now have an account to sell Kat Scrappiness products!
Kat Scrappiness is an American family-owned online craft store who have a range of their own dies, stamps, sequins, sprinkles and more! I first come across Kat when I was looking at their range of Slimline Dies.
I was very impressed with their range and quality that I decided to share it with all my customers too! I will order these in if requested as I would rather wait for a big order as these will be coming from America, and please be aware that these dies will cost a fraction more due to price conversion and shipping. For more information, please get in touch.
Phew! Almost done- I have one last thing to share. I have been approached by a company called Crafty Critta who is an Australian storage company!
Their craft storage is centred around the Ikea cubes found in most craft rooms. They have many craft specific options to suit Ink’s, Markers, Card stock, Papers, Foils, Ribbons etc. as well as a range of Foil Art and Toner Foils!
Their products are all designed and manufactured in Australia and are reasonably priced! If this sounds like something you would be interested in looking at- let me know as I will certainly be looking at getting an account with them!
They even do 12x12 paper storage!!! EEEPPP!!! And we all know how difficult that can be to find!
Well, that is it from me! Lots of information and goodies for you to absorb and thank you for sticking this one out! Heaps of stuff between now and Christmas!
