New Martha Stewart Punches and Competition Update!

Yes - I know the photo isn't great but my battery was running out - sorry!! But the stuff is still great!!! We have had delivered today, a HUGE box of Martha Stewart punches direct from the US - cheaper than Spotlight - hooray!!!!!! Lots of the new stamp and punch designs (yes, you stamp the images and then punch them out , fab idea!) Border and corner sets - so you can get the design around the complete page or card, jumbo deep edge punches in the most gorgeous designs - I want ALL of them!! Also in are the large lace heart, the Monarch Butterfly, the Cosmos and Cornflower designs as well as the trellis design border punch that is so 'IN' right now! Also a punch to make your own photos corners (at last)We had a delivery of these last Friday, took them to the paper show and sold them all in 2 hours so these are HOT property, get in quick! Also arrived are the Martha Stewart Scoreboards - I am so upset as I have just bought a fab Scor-pal but these are the BEST boards I've ever seen! They come complete with a handy envelope template to use along with the board which slips into a little pocket underneath for safe storage and a flip up sizing guide with all your measurements on it for the most commonly used projects. You also store the scoring tool in this are too -LOVE IT!!!
We've only got the three so if you were thinking about buying a score board - now is the time to act on that thought:)
DO - CRAFTS - The Do-Crafts stuff has been paid for and is on its way - it should be here before Thursday. All of you with a magazine subscription will be telephoned as soon as it hits our doors. We have pre-ordered the Forever Friends range of Wooden stamps (no acrylic ones in Oz as yet - sorry) but you will love the designs of these limited edition stamps. We have pre-ordered extra just so we don't miss out but once they are gone - they are gone. Due in end of June.
COMPETITION NEWS - where are all the entries???? There is $50 first prize up for grabs girls, and second and third prizes of goody bags. You have a pretty good chance of winning as we are low on entries. We will accept entries up to the end of June but you will be missing out on customer votes if you don't act soon. The longer it's on the wall (from 1st June) the more people can see it and vote for it. This comp is just for fun - it's free to enter and we'd love to have more entries so please get scrapping and see what you can come up with.
Bye for now, Maxine & Karen.
