What's Happening & Highlights
Hi There Everyone.
We’ve had a fantastic week here at Paper Flourish – the noted highlight being our 2 classes with the flawless Louise Nelson. If you didn’t get a chance to join Louise fear not! She will be joining us again in February 2018 to share more of her genius with us, and judging from the response of those that did attend – I have a feeling it will be super popular!! Louise’s classes are always so filled with techniques and she is brilliant at showcasing how to achieve these results in her lessons.
Our Teaching team here at Paper Flourish have started submitting their lessons for November and – as if it were even possible - they have once again raised the bar! With all the beautiful new product that has been arriving over the past few weeks, we’ve had so much variety and have taken full advantage of the diversity of products available to create some amazing and unique lesson opportunities for the coming month. Keep your eyes peeled next week…
Thanks for all your ongoing support and we look forward to seeing you in store or on Facebook this week.
Mandii, Ruth and the Paper Flourish Team.
What's In The Box - October Kit
Last week we told you how these kits were selling fast, we even got more of the Mint Wishes Kits into stock, but alas they have sold out completely now! Do not despair, we still have stock of the gorgeous Rose Avenue Kits but they too are disappearing fast.
If you were specifically needing a Christmas Kit we do still have a limited number of the September Kit which featured a Christmas range. This is such a great option if you still need inspiration and instructions for your Christmas cards.
Christmas Joy Event
Saturday 21st October @ 1:00pm
The time has well and truly come to get organised for all your Christmas projects, and let’s face it, Christmas cards make up the lions share of your handmade projects over the season.
As usual, Paper Flourish has you covered with an awesome day of making and creating!
For just $25 per head you will receive the kits for three stunning, high quality photo style cards of your own choosing. There will be more than 20 different designs to choose from, and if you want to sit for the day and make some more, all of the styles will be available for individual purchase on the day, and the girls will be available to you to guide you should you need it.
We will be providing afternoon tea to those participating, so this is a great opportunity to bring your friends and make it into a social event.

As usual, you will receive a full sheet of Lawn Fawn images on either copic or watercolour card to colour in your chosen medium – However, please be aware this lesson will focus on the backgrounds rather than colouring the images. Ashleigh will provide a list of suggested copic and distress colours in the lesson.
