Introducing Scrap With Friends!!

Back in 2005, a young lady found her calling, Scrapbooking. Three years later, after visiting many shops and websites and never finding exactly what she wanted, Rose decided to go into business for herself. Scrap with Friends is Rose’s vision of her ideal scrapbooking shop. Rose’s philosophy is to stock beautiful brands and unique products in order to assist crafters find inspiration in their scrapbooking, off the page projects and cardmaking.
scrapwithfriends is constantly being filled with new releases and fantastic page kits to fuel your creativity and help you become the scrapper you want to be.

Rose from Scrap with Friends has kindly donated a $20.00 voucher from her online store for Group 2 challenge. Thanks so much Rose!

Paper Inklings
Beginning in 2005, Paper Inklings was built on the desire to create exceptional scrapbooking products especially for the Australian market.
Our aim is to provide the Australian scrapbooking community with products in themes that are relevant to our lifestyle. We are striving to “fill-the-gap” with products that just aren’t available from overseas companies, but are products that every Australian scrapbooker needs. An example of this would be our “Mum” paper, instead of “Mom”!; and our Hot Hot Christmas instead of snowmen!
We constantly listen to what our scrapbooking customers are asking for and always welcome any suggestions.
Our promise is that all our designs are fresh and unique and unlike any other. Paper Inklings has fast become the “must-have” brand for all Australian scrapbooking retailers.
