What's Happening & Highlights

 Hi Everyone,

As the new stock arrives it is interesting to witness our team’s creativity blossom. The mere presence of new items illicit a response. Cogs begin to tick over as ideas are formulating about the next project to be made.  Those moments where you find yourself thinking “oooh, I could do this…. And then this…. And after that….”  From setting eyes on something new, a snowball effect occurs and suddenly a project is born. 

We are lucky working here, having these opportunities to be inspired. And we love sharing this with people.  When you come in, you may notice beautiful new samples showcasing how some of the staff have used these products.  Check out the Jane Davenport Canvas Journal that Lydell has painted next time you are in store, the cards using the new Uniquely Creative Spring Bouquet stamp with Zig Clean Colour Markers, or the beautiful flowers made from the foam sheets. 

If you look on our lesson wall, there are some stunning samples of artwork by one of our new teachers, Carolyn Forster. You can learn how to start from a blank canvas to then create inspired artwork by booking into her class this month.

If you are feeling creatively fatigued, drop into Paper Flourish and let products and samples recharge you, or book into a lesson where our teachers can take you step by step, through how to make the projects.  Inspiration abounds here at Paper Flourish and we love to share it with you.

From Mandii, Ruth and the Paper Flourish team.

Featured Technique video:

WRMK Mini Alphabet Punch Board


Because of the abstract nature of this tool, this video demonstrates how to make 1.5"x 2" pieces of patterned paper into all the letters of the alphabet and numbers will demystify the process. A great way to personalise projects, especially for people who have a unique spelling for their name! Having the app on your phone is a useful alternative to needing the supplied booklet.
