Happy New Year to all our readers, customers and members!

Thank you for another year of patronage!

2008 has seen lots of new happenings for Country Papercraft - with the building of the bricks & mortar store

New Forum

And has seen many new products flow through the store.

2009 promises more...

Country Papercraft would not be as successful as it is without the wonderful assistance of the Designers

Deb, Julie, Leonie, Lynlee & Mish - all your hard work over the past year has been absolutely awesome! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!!

Basic Grey Rub-on Tool

I love rub-ons !

I have an abundance of them!
Alphas, words, flourishes, any variety that you can name, from such manufacturers as Basic Grey, 7 Gypsies, Bella, Kaisercraft, Making Memories, Prima, Fancy Pants, and so the list goes on.

With each of these packets I have received various rub on tools - paddle pop sticks, round wooden stick, round plastic sticks, icy pole sticks - lots of different ones, but none of these work anywhere near as well as the Basic Grey Rub on Roller Stylus.

This tool is magnificent! It is the ideal shape to hold, not too heavy, nor too light, it's double ended, and the rub on stylus not only rolls easily but is also spring loaded. This makes applying rub-ons over a number of layers much easier, and the other end is flat and is used to set the rub-ons or to take out the tiny air bubbles that you sometimes get.
I really recommend this tool as a must have in your stash, and I know that there are some available in the SHOP.

Do you have a Cuttlebug???

Well if the answer is no, then why haven't if the answer is yes, well you are going to love the Nestabilities dies that will be landing in store very shortly. They come in lots of different shapes, and each set comes with at least 5 sizes, mostly 6, making them very versatile. The great thing about the Nestabilities is that they not only cut, but emboss and stencil as well, all with the same die, they are also very thin and easy to store. I store one of my sets in a CD case and another couple in a CD tin, so they take up hardly any room at all. Here is one of the Scallop die sets, which you can see comes with 6 die, the largest being around 4 inches and the smallest around 1 1/4 inches across.Here are a couple of Christmas cards I did with the scallop dies, and all I did was fold a piece of cardstock over then placed the scallop die so that it just sat a little over the folded edge, ran it through my Cuttlebug and it cut a 4 inch scallop card, pretty cute? Another great thing to do is use the die to cut a window in a card, and you can then emboss the window which looks gorgeous. The possibilities are endless with this great product, so keep your eye out in the shop very soon, and give them a go, I'm sure you'll love them.
You can see a little demonstration video here.

Basic Grey & KAISER

Marg has been busy creating - using a design found on the HERO ARTS blog.

The first uses KAISERscrapbook's "Be Mine" available in store HERE

The second uses Basic Grey's "Blitzen" Range

Don't they look absolutely gorgeous...

And what a great quick idea for that last minute card.

Look who has arrived!

And he brings a special message!!!!


And has so many products available as presents for the avid scrapbooker!

Why not drop some subtle hints of thing you would like! Or just order a Gift Voucher for that special someone in your life.

I know I have my wish list happening!

*The story behind Santa - Marg loves Christmas and all things Christmassy. Each year Santa is brought out of storage and placed in a multitude of positions on the farm. Last year he spent the Christmas period in the bath.
This year he is rounding up those naughty little reindeer, and sending across the special message about the store being opened. It must delight passers by, who travel out in the country to suddenly see Santa perched on a Motorbike out in the middle of a paddock. I know it delights the children who pass by on the school bus!

Cuttlebug Storage....

Have you seen these?

They are a storage bag to hold all your Cuttlebug dies! How clever is that?

The bag is constructed of a sturdy canvas, in this gorgeous shade of blue. Each bag comes complete with one binder which holds 2 of the A2 folders (the larger ones) 4 of the 2 x 2 dies and 2 of the 3 x 3 dies.
You are able to purchase more inserts to hold further dies.

Great Value! And another brilliant storage idea!

And after doing a quick Google search I am pleased to say we can offer one of the cheapest prices around!!!!!

Check them out in the Sizzix & Cuttlebug section at THE SHOP
