Lilac Avenue ...

Kaisercraft keep coming up with wonderful new collections. The latest papers I got from them, I only got the 6x6 Collection Paper Pads - Pack Your Bags, Lilac Avenue, Belle & Dear Santa. (If you are wanting to see them look under Patterned Papers, Kaisercraft, 6x6 Collection Pads in the shop.)

When the Lilac Avenue turned up I just loved the papers and didn't have many purples in stock. So I have included these three - aren't they neat. There are six in the collection and the papers in the 6x6 Paper Pads include these and flocked, foil, glitter and spot varnished papers as well.

Use Lilac Avenue for: Girlie projects, friendship layouts, gifts for mum, birthday cards and gifts, playful paper crafts.

Great value for 12 x 12 size, double sided paper at $2 a sheet.

Welcome to 2010

Hope you all had a brilliant Christmas/New Year and a relaxing time. My family and I headed to a bach at Pohara, Golden Bay. Great weather, heaps of BBQ and beach, magazines read and too much food. Got into the habit of a wine/beer each night and then a walk on the beach. Great way to end the day.

All new year resolutions are in order - some of mine broken already. One I'm not breaking and that is to bring great new products and service to all that shop at Scrap Box NZ.

Some challenges will start again in February and at the moment it's time for a clean up and to make room for new products. Out with the old and in with the new! Great Sale on for January 10% - 50% off most of the products in the shop. Take a look and make the most of some bargins.


Welcome to 2010..

Hope everybody had a fantastic night last night, and didn't over indulge. Be ready for a great year this year, challenges will resume at the beginning of February.
