Sizzix is back!!!!!!!!

Hello, if you weren't excited enough about the Copic Ciao markers - I have more mind blowing news!!!!?? Sizzix has found a new home in Australia at last and we have pre-ordered their fabulous new product called the Texture Boutique machine and lots of new embossing folder designs - including Christmas patterns and sentiments!! They will retail for around $75 and are shaped like a handbag (so cute!!) and are great for people like me who only use their Cuttlebug for embossing. We are expecting the first deliveries to be in store in about 10 days. Get one on your wish list for Christmas now - at a bargain price for a great little must-have machine and the embossing packs are also great value at around $20-$30 for a multi pack of folders in a single theme (i.e. Birthday, Christmas , Baby etc). I LOVE new stuff - wish I had time to play with it all? Don't forget to enter into our Layout Competition on this blog for November (see further down this page) - I'm even going to attempt it myself at some point this week (Don't hold your breath though - you may well faint). Bye for now, Maxine.

The Copics are Here!

Hi everyone

I'm Kirsty, normally the one working behind the scenes on the website, not out in front but I just had to share my excitement about the arrival of the Copic Ciao markers at Picture2Page.

From someone who has spent many hours hunting all around Melbourne (and harassing Maxine) for these lovely markers I can tell you that Picture2Page is the only scrapbooking store in the eastern suburbs to stock these fantastic markers.

So what's so good about them you ask? They are brilliant for colouring and produce rich vibrant colours that blend beautifully to make your stamped image pop of the page. Copic markers are alcohol based, permanent makers used by illustrators, designers, artists and craft enthusiasts around the world.

There are a few tricks you need to know so check back soon for details on how you can learn to use these amazing markers. In the meantime, I've posted a couple of cards below where I've used copic markers.

till next time
