Darkroom Door ... Brand new Stencils, Masks and Postcards arrived in August. You'll find them in the "What's New!" category as well as the Darkroom Door shelf.

Everything else by this wonderful team is in abundance, waiting for you to buy, collect, use, share and enjoy!

... Dyan's newest arrivals include elves, tress, holly, snowflakes, spots, stripes and other unique illustrations, ready for us to use in our creative masterpieces, journals, mixed media adventures and other arty ventures (aka scrapbooking, visual arts, cardmaking). Love the new "Any Old Elf" stamps - and all are in stock!

Ranger ... Tim's Limited Edition Halloween Collection - more of the Mica Stains are arriving inStore in less than 1 week! That's still sort of mid August :) The colours and textures in this highly sought after range of Tim Treasures look amazing! Watch their spaces or buy in advance, whichever you wish.
... Textures and Sparkles Sets (aka texture paste, grit paste, glitter and mica flakes) are sold out but I am hopeful that Ranger decide to make some more (so if they do, its just a matter of time). But until we know for sure, I have put them on the "Watch this Space" list on the PreOrder shelf.
... and if we all miss out, there's always next month's release! Can't wait :)
... Thanks so much for visiting and choosing my shop :) Have a happy creative day!
