Hi Everyone, Welcome to Stef's papercrafts blog.

We hope to share lots of projects, new products, ideas and inspiration with you.

A new location and back to blogging

Written by Stef on . Posted in Blog

Hi Everyone,

The last few months have been super busy for us in the store, we moved our shop to a new location, next to Bob Jane T-Mart. Our new address is  Southern Stationery - 1/170 Albany Hwy, Albany.  Our phone number is still the same - 9842 2222.

It has taken a little bit of time to get things organised but we are happy in our new store and would love to see you there.  We are still stocking all the same products and continue to get in new papercrafting supplies.  We have started up posting some of the new products on the facebook page (click on the Facebook button at the top of the page to go check it out).  But remember we don't post everything so it not overwhelming, so if you want to see it all you will have come visit us :)

In the next few weeks we will be sharing ways to add touches of gold to your projects, some girl themed birthday cards and ideas for using one of the most popular products in crafting at the moment - stencils.  So be sure to stop back and grab some ideas.

Thanks for stopping by,

Stef

Blue Bay Birthday Card

Kaisercraft Blue Bay, kaisercraft birthdat clear texture stamp,

Hi Everyone

I love the beautiful soft colours in Kaisercraft's Blue Bay collection so I would like to share a card I have made using different layers to make the layers of the card. To add interest I have drawn faux stitching around all the layers. The birthday greeting is a clear texture stamp - Birthday  from kaisercraft stamped in archival Watering Can ink. The leaves are dies from the sizzix Floral Flourihes set then toppedwith assorted blooms and white twine.

Balloon Step Up Card

step up balloon card dies Echo Park Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone

Today I would like to share  a card I made for a very special girl on her birthday.

It has been created using the sizzix balloon step up set of card creator dies.

I have used pink bazzill card stock to die cut the base, white cardstock for layering and Echo Park Birthday Wishes paper collection to die cut the embellishments.

This set has 23 dies so there are plenty of options to make different cards.

Washi tape card

Written by Stef on . Posted in Blog

 matise washi tape card

Today I thought I would like to show you a very quick easy card made with washi tape. To create this card I have chosen a card base to match the washi tapes. Lay strips of co-ordinating washi tape along the left and just up from the bottom of a white card layer. Cut a small square of white card and cover with strips of washi tape to make it look like a parcel, mount on card front. Attach a bow of matching ribbon, Stamp a sentiment and it's done.

Tags with Kaiser Mists

Written by Stef on . Posted in Blog

Tag backgrounds created using stencils and Kaiser mists

Hi everyone,

We got the new Kaiser Mists in store recently and I decided to have a play.  I used the new Kaisercraft Quarters stencils and the mist to created these tags.  The Quarters stencils have 4 different quarters that have different patterns which gives you more options for creating backgrounds and they are a good size for cards too.  You can see the tags in the store and see the lovely shimmer and colours of the mists.  I have labelled each tag with the colour.

See you in store soon,

Stef

Cracked Pistachio Background

Written by Kristy on . Posted in Blog

Hi everyone,

Here is a quick background created using the new Distress Spray colour Cracked Pistachio.  This year Tim Holtz and Ranger are releasing a new colour of distress every month and this is January's colour.  The new distress colour will be available in all the regular distress products - Inks, markers, sprays, paint, re-inkers and stains.

The Cracked Pistachio is a beautiful fresh green.  This background was created using a Prima Stencil and misting the spray onto some white card, waiting a few moments for the spray to dry and then flipping the stencil over and pressing onto the paper.

Thanks for stopping by,

Kristy
