Over the last weekend I have been indulging in all things paper for a change….there are some out there that think you should mix your interests up but how can you really explore mixed media as an art form if you don’t have the media and the requisite skills to mix?

Paperific offers all sorts of opportunities to try out product and learn new skills through their “Make and Take” programme. A day can easily be spent exploring all that is on offer – in my case, I ‘tagged’ with Azza at Scrappmats, ‘structured’, ‘foiled’ and ‘scultped’ with Jo at Izzii and acquired bits and pieces from Yazzii, Art Stamps Australia and others.

Such fun.

Paperific will be back in August 2011 at the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds in Ascot Vale.




…. opens tomorrow at 9.30am!

Andrew and I have finished the set up a little bit later than we planned and I guess that we will be rearranging things on the Scrapmatts stand tomorrow before the doors open.

There are so many new designs in the Chipboard range – I can’t wait to get to play!  I am really impressed with the fabulous range of shoes….I think I will have to make sure I have at least one packet each of all the different designs – especially the red ones! cb1031_s

I am also delighted to find The Thread Studio has a stand at this show… I just love all the delicious threads and products for working on fabric I can find here.


This event is the opportunity for Melbourne and Victorian paper enthusiasts to restock supplies, see new trends and designs and take part in “Make and Takes” of new techniques.

The Paperific Expo is being held once again at the Royal Agricultural ShowGrounds in Epsom Road, Ascot Vale and, unlike last show,  there is great new catering available! On site parking is also available at $5.oo per car.

I will be there again with Andrew from Scrapmatts and we will have a great new range of original chipboard designs as well as some fabulous new pens about which Andrew is very excited!  Come along and watch our on site demonstrations, pick up supplies for Artist’s Trading Cards, card making and scrapbooking, and see all our new products in action.

The people from Stitches and Craft have just announced a change of venue for the March 2009 Stitches and Craft Show.  No longer will the show be held at Caulfield Racecourse (I can remember it first being held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton) Keep up to date with what is happening to Stitches on their website (as of today its still under construction!)

They are very excited to announce that it will be held at the newly completed Exhibition Pavillions at the Melbourne Showgrounds.

This is great news for me as I am very close by this venue and that will make it a very convenient show to work!
