Hi Ho, Hi Ho...

They come in a wide variety of themes and each kit includes step-by-step instructions, a photo of the finished layout and all the materials you need to complete the pages in the comfort of your own home.

You can see all the kits by stopping in to our store or you can visit our online store HERE. There are over 30 designs to choose from!

Bag in a Box Tutorial - Make n Take from Scrapfest!!!

Good Morning Friends!!!

We are just returning from an amazing weekend at Scrapfest in Kitchener and slowly getting our store put back together.  We have already placed a large order to replace a lot of the many items that we sold out of. Shelby has been working very hard at getting the products we do have back into inventory and finding them homes in our store.  We will keep you updated on our progress.

If you have not liked our Facebook page, we encourage you to do so......we post more frequently on there, so you get faster updates too.

As usual, our make n take tables were very busy over the weekend and we wanted to share a tutorial for the mini box we created on Saturday using the Envelope Punch Board.  If you do not have one of these awesome tools, you need to get one!!!!  They are for more than just envelopes.

The little box is perfect to hold some treats.....and it just so happens that it does hold an Easter Creme Egg!!  Here is the tutorial that we used to create our box.

April Sketch & Crafty Challenge with Jayne

We've headed into a new month which means it's time for a brand new challenge here at TSF.

We received some fabulous entries last month and as it seems Spring is still trying to avoid making an appearance, I'm hoping you will all have a chance to play along again this month!

Please remember that every entry linked needs to show your interpretation of both the Sketch and the Crafty element.

So, without further ado, here's this months Sketch:

For those of you who have seen my sketches before, you will notice I've converted to digital.........definitely less time consuming for me so I hope you will like the results.

For the 'Crafty' element of my challenge, I have chosen something which is pretty 'on trend' right now........Confetti!

You don't have to stick to paper of course, although you can if you wish.  Sequins, rhinestones, pearls, enamel dots, eyelets, brads and even paint splatters to name a few, will all work just fine as long as you create a scattered confetti element on your design.

Here is my sample:

For my 'confetti' I used a selection of sequins, pearls and rhinestones......

I do hope you'll get a chance to play along with us this month, as we look forward to seeing some fabulous creations.  As always, there is a Gift Certificate to the store up for grabs by one lucky winner!

Please remember a few simple rules:

1.Enter as many times as you like as long as each NEW project shows an interpretation of both the Sketch and Crafty element.

2. Each creation will gain you one entry in the draw to win. (Please enter a double page layout as only one entry).

3. Projects must be linked up using the tool below in order to be entered to win.

4. Projects must be entered no later than April 30 2014 by 11.59pm.
