Cupcake Wrappers

Don't you love how some people have all the matching decorations for their child's birthday parties? You can buy specially designed printable cup cake toppers, bottle wraps, loot bag labels etc.(as can be seen here in an Etsy store)

But to print out everything would probably cost you at least 1 full cartridge of coloured ink, so to make it a bit easier on your pocket we now have Cupcake Wrapper stencils in stock. Just trace them on to your favourite patterned paper, cut out and wrap around your cupcakes. Its as easy as that!

Using your favourite paper will end up being cheaper and the quality of the paper is much better than printer paper.

See you in store soon :)

More photos of the new shop on Flores Road.

I know I am a bit behind in up loading photos....you have seen the before photos (or click here to see them) but here are the "during" photos:
Shelves are starting to be filled


Boxes everywhere still
Plenty of coffee consumed!

Late Wednesday afternoon we got the go ahead that we could start working in the shop.....3 evenings and 2 full days followed.....I have muscles I didn't know existed! So many boxes lifted and fittings moved. Although a BIG thank you to the courier across the road for fork lifting the 2 fittings in from the back in to the shop. And a MASSIVE thank you to the ladies (and gentleman) who helped move the fittings, unpack all the boxes and had my kids for sleep overs. I could not have done it without you!

Friday night the shop looked like this:

On Saturday morning I hung up some layouts and put out some of the BTP items so it doesn't look as bare anymore. As soon as Tony comes home he will be putting up the slat wall along the back.

The blinds will be fitted in the next couple of weeks and the walls will get filled with layouts. The best thing is we felt so safe there late at night. No one banging on the windows, no need to venture outside for the toilet (did I already mention we have not 1 but 2 inside?! lol) no empty beer bottles left outside. On Friday night I was even there by myself for a couple of hours (unheard of in my other shop) and when I left at 9.30pm felt very safe going outside to the car, which means night classes will definitely be happening now. 

What do you think of  the new shop?

Marianne and Nellie Snellie Dies

Our main aim at Scrapbooking in Geraldton is to make paper crafting affordable for everyone. I spend many many hours searching the internet to get the best price possible.

There is one particular brand of dies (no naming and shaming here) that I love but are a bit pricey and a lot of people can't afford them. So when a friend of mine mentioned Marianne dies I started searching for a distributor.

My first lot of dies only lasted 3 days in the shop so I quickly ordered more, and they are now in store. A number of them sold at our opening on Saturday but I still have plenty more - but be quick as I'm not sure how long they will last.

You can watch a quick demo here....but it is in dutch. Just don't listen to the sound - the image shows enough :)

Or you can come in store and I can give you a quick demo - or try it yourself. :)

New Prima CHA 2011

Have you seen the new tools and inks Prima released at CHA?
What do you think of the ink colours? Do you prefer to use mini inks like this or do you always use a dauber? I only use daubers with my big ink pads.

What do you think?
