'Snowfall' has arrived

But luckily that doesn't mean we are blocked in by great snowdrifts!  Thankfully what it does mean is that our gorgeous, glittery December Kit is now on sale.  The Kit is worked around the gloriously glittered paper from Bo Bunny's range of the same name and they are simply stunning and a joy to work with.  You can find full details of the Kit on the website but I know it isn't always easy to see the papers in detail from the picture so I always think it helps if I post the papers here.

As you can see they are all double-sided with the main side being beautifully glittered and I just love that colour combination of teal and chocolate.  As you would expect from a company like Bo Bunny, the papers are all cardstock weight and wondeful to work with.  You can also download our Inspiration Sheet on the website to really get you motivated!

December Sneak Peak

We have been having a few supply problems for our latest kit so it is being launched slightly later than normal but whilst you wait I wanted to wet your appetite with a few 'sneaky peaks' at the new Kit!

As you can see lots of glitter and sparkle - perfect for this gloomy time of year.  It is a kit packed full of goodies and the papers are brand new on the market.  We had great fun producing lots of gorgeous layouts and can't wait to show you our results and the Kit in full detail when it is launched in a couple of days time so keep watching!

Sidewalks our new November Kit

I am delighted that our new November Kit is now released - it is such a fun playful kit and will really bring out the child in you.  The colours are gorgeous and the kit is packed full of yummy embellishments.  Sidewalks uses the papers and embellishments from the October Afternoon range of the same name and so you know you can be assured of quality products from this company.  With these we have added some fun bits and pieces so you can feel like you are playing whilst putting together your layouts.

Because I know it isn't easy to see the papers on the photo for the kit we have them all below together with the 12" x 12" sticker sheet also included in the Kit.

Each paper is double-sided so you get a great range of patterns to choose from.  Full details of the kit and its contents can be found on the website and there is an Inspiration Sheet to download and the layouts and projects produced by our Design Team can also be found in our Gallery.  I hope you have a lot of fun playing with this one :).

Beautiful Dreamer Layouts

Wow, it has been such a busy couple of days packing up orders; the kit has been selling like hot cakes - we obviously all felt the need for a little romance!

I thought I would share the layouts we have produced with the kit here on the Blog.  We would love to see any you create using this kit, or any of our other ones, so do send us some pictures.

'Special Memories' by Kate Holliday
'Family Occasion' by Martina Gardner
'You are so Beautiful' by Nicky Parry
'Beautiful Dreamer' by Martina Gardner
'Needs Must' by Kate Holliday
'Sweet as Candy' by Nicky Parry

The Kit was just so beautiful to use; I absolutely love Glitz Designs and plan on stocking more of their products on the website!  We have their 'Dance in Sunshine' range which is stunning in a gold, purple and teal colour scheme and we have a few left of our 'Hoopla' kit which is also by Glitz Designs which I think is my favourite kit that we have produced (although usually my favourite is the one I am working on!).

Have fun :).

Beautiful Dreamer is here!

Our gorgeous new October Kit is here and if you are looking for a little romance then you couldn't have come to a better place :).  'Beautiful Dreamer' uses papers from Glitz Designs' range of the same name and has a gentle colour palette of aqua blue, vanilla and vintage pink working brilliantly in contrast to the harsher black tones and the addition of unique die-cuts, soft lace, satin ribbons and crystal swirls really makes this kit work.   This is the Victorian love of flowers combined with shabby chic and it works brilliantly. 

Full details of the Kit, Add-ons, Inspiration Sheet and our Gallery can be found on the website but it isn't always easy to see the papers properly in Kit photos so here they are individually:-

I love how the pastel colour palette works so brilliantly with the harsher black tones - this really is a case of opposites attract!

Scrapping with the Stars!

This past weekend I was privileged to take the shop up to Leeds to join the Scrapstars Retreat, a fantastic weekend event organised by Caroline Lovett.  My friend Nicky and I packed the car full of Bellaboo goodies and drove 'up North' to join a lovely group of 'ladies who scrap' - and I am just in awe of their skills.  

'A tight squeeze' - Nicky and I with a very overloaded car!

And then came the classes taught by the fantastic four: Rachael Elliot, Kirsty Wiseman, Lida de Witt and Emma Trout.  Their classes were amazing and I think everyone learned so much from them.

Rachael Elliott teaching one of her amazing classes using the Websters Pages 'Country Estate' range.

The shop itself looked fabulous - all the lovely papers and embellishments in one place!  I hardly had time to unpack some of the fantastic new ranges that had arrived just before we left from Websters Pages, Glitz Design, Echo Park and the brand new company Authentique.  How lovely to get a chance to play with them properly, and see how they have been used by the talented teachers at the retreat.  In the next couple of days we'll upload some pictures of the layouts and other things we created over the weekend. 

'The Shop' - we never normally see it all laid out like this.  I think we were as excited as our customers were!

What a fantastic retreat - well done to Caroline and her lovely group of helpers!  I hope this is just the beginning of a regular Scrapstars event on the calendar!

The Farmhouse Kit is here!

I hope you enjoyed the 'sneak peaks' I posted over the weekend - such a tease!  Well the new Kit is out today and full details of the contents, Add-on Kit, Inspiration Sheet and Gallery can be found on the website.  However, I promised to post pictures of the papers in their entirety as I know it isn't easy to see them in the Kit pictures and here they are:-

This way you get to see the reverse as well as the fronts because the reverse of these papers are just as wonderful as the fronts which gives you so many options.  I hope you have fun with the kit :).

Sneak Peak Time!!!

I thought it would be fun to let you have a little 'sneak peak' of our new September Kit which will be launched on Monday 5th so here it is!

As you can see, it is packed full of lots of gorgeous goodies with a fabulous colour palette just perfect for this time of year.  The Kit will also appear in the September issue of Scrapbook Magazine which will be on sale later in the month.  This is really exciting and I am sure it will prove popular so make sure you order your Kit early to avoid disappointment.  I will post pictures of all the papers in the Kit on the Blog on Monday so that you can view them in detail and the full Kit contents will be able to be viewed on the website.  Have a great rest of your weekend.
