Letraset Alcohol Inks

We hope you're all having a great/crafty weekend so far. It's a fab weekend here at The Papeterie, today we had Debbi Glennie demonstrating Flexmarkers and Promarkers in the morning and then she taught a sold out class how to decorate a simple papier mache box with the new Letraset Alcohol Inks in the afternoon. All the ladies on the class made some gorgeous looking keepsake boxes in a rainbow of different colours with loads of hand-coloured embellishments. Here are some of Debbi's samples...
We've updated the class and demo pages - just click on the links at the top of the page. We have lots of exciting new classes, demonstrations and special events coming up soon.

And just a wee reminder that there's just under a week left to enter the card competition, remember you have to be in it to win it - there's £140 of prizes up for grabs and special prizes for the under 12's too. Click here for all the details.

Charlotte will be busy tomorrow afternoon with her Wedding Class, where all the attendees will have a go at designing and putting together ideas for their own wedding stationery. Can't wait to see the pics to see how they all got on.

Lovely crafty goodness

Well we're back from our Birmingham craft adventure and boy! did we shop till we dropped! The show was absolutely amazing with not only lots of fabulous craft stalls, but lots of great people too. Its a fantastic opportunity for us to meet up with crafty friends, old and new, including none other than the lord of grunge himself..... Tim Holtz.

He could not have made us feel more relaxed or welcome at his demo if he had tried, he is as nice as he is talented!

There are so many new crafty goodies on their way to the shop, so here goes some of the new brands along with some sneaky peeks of new products....

Paperartsy, Wild Rose Studio, Clarity Stamps, Sizzix,The Hobby House

To name but a few, I'll keep you all up to date with them as they arrive.

And remember there is just over 1 week left to enter our competition!!

Vintage Book Class

We thought you'd like a look at the Vintage Book class that Charlotte ran last Saturday, everyone had a fab time with all the vintage styling and distressing techniques.

Charlotte and Rachel will be attending the Craft Hobby & Stitch International trade show in Birmingham next week, this is where they get to see all the new season craft products, and decide on what they're going to order for The Papeterie. There are so many fantastic new products being launched - and if you want to see some sneaky peeks, Debbi will be doing her Mario J Rossi impression and tweeting some behind the scenes pics, so keep an eye on her Twitter account.
Here are some things that will be coming to The Papeterie soon...

So what do you think of our blog's new look? have you had a good look around at the class and demo pages?

Blog Relaunch

Well it's been a while since our last post and we thought we'd have a wee revamp and relaunch the blog. So we're going to post weekly updates about what's new in the shop, what's going on and what's coming up.

We've changed things round a bit - at the top of the page you'll notice some new tabs for Classes, Demos, Weddings, etc etc . Hopefully this'll make things easier to navigate - so click on "Classes" to find out what classes are coming up soon, click on "Demos" to find out what free demonstrations we have coming up.... you get the picture.
Have a look around, there's lots to see.
We'd love to hear what you think and what you'd like to see :)

Charlotte & The Team, The Papeterie
