Sold out!

Wow, can you believe it?!  In less than 24 hours, our first stock arrived at Anna’s Craft Cupboard in Australia and SOLD OUT!  Well…. there are just a few packs left of flowers and a couple of The ScrapCake papers (if you hurry!).  But don’t panic just yet – more is on its way. 

Even our supplies have run extremely low but more should arrive on our shores in the next week or so.  As fast as we can get the stock through customs, we will get it out to your store, IF they have put in an order, that is….. we love it you would ask them to stock our products.

BUT…there is some good news!  There are still some supplies of this fabulous collection by Kinga:

 Summer at the Seaside.

Take a look at what our DT member Nerrida, has done with this collection.

Happy place by Nerrida Mitchell.

Supplies: The Tropics – Islander & Resort, Grandma’s Garden-posies. The ScrapCake ‘Summer at the Seaside’ papers 12×12″ – Colourful slippers, Summer Memories, Summer Treasures, Travel notes, 7×12″ papers – Little Octopus, Ocean of Dreams, Cheerful borders & Under the blue sky.


And we’d love you try the new 7″ x 12″ papers from The ScrapCake – they are sure to be popular with card-makers, being the perfect size for a C6 envelope, but they are also great for pages, because you can use them WITH a 12″ paper, and no scraps or off-cuts left.

LOOK! A card for EVERYONE!

One for a friend or Mum….

One for Dad or the man in your life.

One for the girls….


And let’s not forget the boys.

Cards by Nerrida Mitchell.

Our guest Designers for July

Thanks to the Aussie girls at Once Upon A …Sketch, we have some great layouts to show you, featuring some of our newest flowers.  I’m sure you’ll agree, they have done some beautiful work! 

First up is Trudi’s layout featuring the flowers from the Enchanted range and Grandma’s Garden.


 ‘With You’ by Trudi Harrison.


Don’t you love this bright combination, which is part of  The Tropics range from the Getaway pack and also the Islander pack. 

‘Your smile’ by Nerrida Mitchell.

Nerrida is also our DT Co-ordinator so you’ll be seeing much more of her work here.


Heather has used the very pretty Grandma’s Garden – Handkerchief and some from the Islander pack.


‘Beautiful’ by Heather Jacob. 


Doesn’t this Sunset flower, from The Tropics range, look stunning on Natalie’s gorgeous layout. She has also used some of the Springtime flowers in red, which are coming in our next release in a few weeks.

‘So come with me…’ by Natalie Elphinstone.


And last but not least, Carole has used flowers from the Grandma’s Garden range and also, some of the Springtime in light blue .

Thankyou to all these ladies for doing such a wonderful job using our flowers!  We can’t wait to see what you do with them. 

24 hours and we’re feeling the love.

Well it seems Australia is quickly taking up the opportunity to welcome an Australian flower manufacturer into their hearts and shops. We have been open officially for 24 hours and the account requests are piling into out Inbox. Wonderful!  We can’t wait for you to try our products! 

We too, are proud Australians, which is exactly why we have named part of our range after our beautiful and world famous Whitsunday Islands, such as these (and I have to admit they are my personal favourites!)

The Tropics range.

Perfect for your tropical island getaway photos or day at the beach.

 We can’t wait to see how you use them on your scrapbook and craft projects and the first order is on its way to www.annascraftcupboard, so please keep your eye out for their arrival.
