Hello Monday

Tonight’s class is our monthly Year in Review. I look forward to seeing our regulars as we near completion of this album. For those of you who have completed the whole year, the free albums are in transit from the US and should be here soon.

With less than a week until December starts, now is your chance to order your December Daily and get a head start on the preparation so that by the time December rolls around, all you have to do is add photos, journaling and mementos.

Our December Daily is priced at just $55 which includes a Sn@p album, journal inserts, pocket inserts,  buttons, twine, ribbon, flair buttons, three sticker sheets and loads of Handmade Holiday papers to create an amazing keepsake.

Following our instructions, you are able to complete 38 pages!!! What a perfect way to document not only Christmas but the end of school year activities, work functions, catching up with friends and of course holiday snaps. It covers the whole of December, not just up until Christmas Day.

We only have a couple of kits available so if you are interested, please let us know so that we can order more stock if required. We will not have a stash available at our Paper Dayze so if you like to see before you buy, consider popping into the store early in the week to have a look. (Text or email and we can arrange a time).

Speaking of Paper Dayze, we only have three seats available for this Saturday’s Paper Dayze in Fremantle. Join us anytime from 10am – 10pm for some Christmas fun at our last Paper Dayze for the year.

December Daily

I am so excited to be bringing you this project. I love December Daily albums, which are used to document every day in December. Not just the Christmas highlights but end of school year, work parties, holidays and everything else we seem to cram into our Decembers these days.

The Snap albums are perfect for this project! Teamed up with Simple Stories Handmade Holiday range and you have yourself a gorgeous keepsake to treasure.

We are offering this as a kit, which is being made up by preorder only. We are taking orders from today, with kits being available from Monday 26th November. Each kit costs $55 if you would like a Snap album included, (these retail at $25), or the kit without the album is $35. It is jam packed with goodies including lots of papers, twine, ribbon, snap multi sized pockets, handmade holiday journal inserts and of course full colour instructions to get you started.

I have included some sneak peeks of the page layouts for you to see what the album is all about: collecting family Christmas recipes, documenting traditions, storing concedrt ticket keepsakes, children’s letters to Santa (or your own), work paries and even the everyday stuff like weddings and birthdays which fall in December,

You can pre order your album as soon as it is loaded onto our online store, or send us a text or email.
