DT inspiration – old and new

As the year comes to a close, today we have a collection of wonderful inspiration for you from our team.

We start with a layout from NERRIDA using some of her favourites – The Tropics ‘Resort’ flowers.

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.
