Well it's Paperific time again. A trade show devoted to scrapbooking, cardmaking, ATC's and Alter Arts. Held twice yearly in April and August at the Melbourne Showground, the fair provides vistors with a chance to shop for the lastes tools and materials, join in small group classes, watch tutorials from vendors and participate in free "make and take" card and gift tag making sessions.
Twiddleybitz would have to be my favorite vendor. The make and sell amazing MDF laser cut wooden kits which you paint and embellish with scrabook paper. There have shadow boxes, frames and bird houses with can be transformed into wall art, clocks and trinket holders.
I brough a cup cake stand which i indeed to use to display my new range of earrings and bobby pins.
Every year the focus is different depending what's in vouge. This year it was Copic Markers, nifty little pens for hand colouring stamped images.
It was also very pleasing to see this year some steampunk themed scrapbooking.
