Paperific starts this Friday

Hi Everyone

I can't believe it's come around so fast but today Robyn and Vince head off for their annual pilgrimage to Melbourne (whilst I fly down in the comfort of Qantas) where we will be exhibiting at Paperific.

If you haven't been to Paperific before, you can find all the details on their website - http://paperific.com.au/

We have lots of great products, including the new Darkroom Door stamps and stencils (yay!!!).

Robyn will be looking after the Make & Take table with some great techniques to show you - here's a sample of our mix of projects.

Calendar Project - August 2017

Hi Everyone

August is here, our last month of Winter and normally in Brisbane full of Ekka winds, although our weather of late has been perfect.

The first of the month is also our opportunity to show off our calendar page and here is our August page.

Using Art Impressions - Latte Love Set, I've created a Coffee Lovers page.

Starting with a base of Bazzill Dotted Swiss - Rope Swing, I added Mocha Divine and Mud Puddle.

On the Mud Puddle paper, I stamped the words Mocha, Java and Latte using Tim Holtz Worn Text stamp set (CMS156) using an Archival Coffee (how fitting, LOL) stamp pad.

The ladies from Latte Love were stamped on Colour Copy (200gsm) paper and coloured with Copic Markers E00, E11, E40, E41, E43, E47, E31, E35, E37, Y21, YR24, YG61, YG63, YG67, R83, R56, R39, V22, V25 and V28.  I halo cut the ladies and added them to the page.

The words are also from the Latte Love stamp set, making it perfect for anyone who loves coffee.

Hoping you have a wonderful August.

New Altenew Stamps

Hi Everyone

Our new stock of Altenew stamps have arrived including some that have me rather excited to get my pens out.

Here's a couple from the range - Enchanted Iris, Best Buds, Wishing You, Crafty Friends and my must have - Family Matters.






 

Family Matters allows you to create cards with your relationship to the recipient on it. So personalised, it's beautiful.  We are using this set in our July classes this month.



Hope you love these stamp sets and you can pick them up in store or online - http://michellescardsandstamps.com.au/products-page/altenew/.
