New Year- New Collections!!!
Hello and Happy New Year to one and all!
What a busy few months! With Christmas, New Year, Australia Day and now that the children are back at school- it certainly has been a whirlwind of activity! Hopefully, everyone is staying safe and looking forward to all of the new collections and products that are being released over the upcoming months! And have I got some amazing stuff in store!
Let's not wait any longer and see what we have:
Cocoa Vanilla Studio- No Limits
As per usual, the team at CVS have outdone themselves on this masculine collection with all the bits and pieces added to make amazing layouts and cards. Releasing at the end of February, this collection will no doubt fly out the door! Please don't delay in pre-ordering if you want this collection, as I only buy a limited amount due to storage space for excess stock. And don't forget to look at the website too, as I still have older collection pieces available for purchase!
Couture Creations have just moved into a new warehouse over the Christmas period and are releasing some amazing products! We will start with their brand new All-In-One Mat Art Work Station:
Keep your mixed media projects perfectly placed and still with this amazing set! Includes a 300 x 300mm thin, lightweight, warp-resistant and sturdy metal magnetic surface with rounded edges, quality brushed metal magnets and flexible magnetic ruler. Measurements on the base metal mat and magnetic ruler are in millimetres and inches. Also very easy to clean off once finished with.
