Kath's Craft Retreat Projects

We are often asked exactly what projects will be taught at the next craft retreat, but we don't reveal everything until the actual retreat - this is because we like to use the latest products available that the projects are current and relevant. But to give you an idea of what's up we often reveal some sneak peeks in the weeks before the retreat. 
If you've never been to one of our retreats and would like to know what kind of thing we do, then we'll be showing you over the next few days, the projects that were taught at the Spring retreat this year.
First up is the inimitable Kath and her innovative designs...
 Tim Holtz Inky Project

Altered Floral Pot

Burlap Panel

Altered Art

Hero Arts Project

Look out for Charlotte's projects coming next

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!
What a lovely day it is here in Aberdeen - beautiful blue sky and not a cloud in sight.
We've had another busy week at The Papeterie - lots going on, including some childrens craft classes. I decided on 3 projects for the children to make for Easter - a bunny egg holder, an Easter basket and an Easter card, and here's how they got on...

Sparkles and Stax, were helping out of course...

We are open over the whole Easter weekend and Easter Monday, so pop along and see all the new stock we've been getting in.
