Don't you just love.....

Helloooooooooo and a very good evening to you!!!!

Well, there are many possible endings to my title aren't there????  Wonder how many we could come up with between us.... But actually the way I wanted to finish the phrase is "TO BE IN THE KNOW!!!" 

And tonight I thought you'd all like "TO BE IN THE KNOW" about a gorgeous colourful range coming in March from Papermania!!!

If you've got your copy of the latest January/ February Issue of Creativity Magazine (and I know many of you have!) you may have espied a sneaky peak of a new range calles "All Aboard" with its inspiration rooted in Vintage travel.

Everyone loves a bit of upfront knowledge don't they and I have to say I do absolutely adore seeing the new products we have in store for you when they arrive at Docrafts Head Office... I have a tendency to get a little excited when I see them...

Ok that might be A LOT EXCITED...

Ok let's face it, my excitement is sometimes a little over zealous and enthusiastic and then I just can't wait to tell you... and its at this bursting point that I have to zip up and say nothing....

And despite the fact I love to share all things crafting I do say nothing... otherwise you would never have any lovely surprises... and, if you are like me, you love good surprises!!

It's at these times I sometimes tell you I have been working with some new ranges but I really can't share anything yet... and Oooooooo how I'd love too hee hee!!!

Well I can now tell you that I have been working with this stunning collection in recent weeks.  It really has inspired me to take new steps in my crafting (yes, a couple of those "Scrapbook" style projects I don't do have even been created!)  

So I thought you might like to have a little nosey at this additional info, direct from Docrafts head office itself...

 Add a retro twist to your craft creations

Set the crafting sail this March with the exciting new All Aboard collection from Papermania. Offering a fresh retro edge for those who love to journal and scrapbook their travels, this golden age aesthetic is paramount in other industries such as fashion, homeware and stationary.

The collection comprises of 6 x 6” and 12 x 12” Paper Packs boasting an array of automotive designs; with planes, trains and ships you can create a montage of travel inspired projects. New products include: Kraft Luggage Tags, Travel Labels, Die-cut Postcards, Luggage Tag Dies and Memory Pockets which will give an element of authenticity to all of your globetrotting makes.

The Spiral Bound Book includes 36 unique designs; journal, scrapbook or just use to scribble in and re-live the romance of vintage travel. In addition, the co-ordinating Journaling Cards and Travel Notepad allow you to express your treasured thoughts and memories in your cards, scrapbook pages and home decor projects. Combine with the fabulous Patterned Craft Tape to add a splash of colour and style.

The new Page Tabs, aeroplane Book Marks and Ribbon Clips are an ideal way to accessorise or to book mark your collection of projects. The Papermania Alphabet, Travel and Cardstock Stickers will help to tell your story at the same time adding instant eye-catching detail. The Airmail Twine & Self Adhesive Reels can be used to plot your way around the world and the intricate 4 x 4” Urban Stamps, available in 4 designs, will provide a finishing touch to your travel memories.

The range wouldn’t be complete without the latest addition to the Xcut Build-A-Scene Dies. The new Around The World Kinetic Die allows you to create unique, moveable scenes which will be adored by all of your loved ones. Saying ‘bon voyage’ has never been so exciting!


Papermania All Aboard products are available in docrafts Creativity Stores from March 2013.

So what d'ya think???  Aren't you just dying to pull out those holday photos and create some fabulous scrapbook memories???  Wouldn't the spiral bound notebook be a wonderful gift for anyone going on a special holiday or a "gap" year to record all their favourite places and memories???

And let me just say that new die is so innovative - you will love it!

Like me, I know you'll all be just longing to grab your own collection of this evocative range!!!

Would love to know what you think!!!

Until next time one and all,


PS Going back to one of my "I can't share" today moments - but should be able to very soon... Today I have fallen in love... oh yes, Mr J stand aside...  Where is that gorgeous Docrafts Artiste Pink Pigment Ink Pad and Papermania Holographic Embossing powder I've been playing (sorry working) with today????? They have stolen my heart...  Ok I don't love them quite as much as Mr J but its a close run thing.... but more of that another day!


  1. Evening Beckyboo... Just poppin on for a catch up after rather a bad day..

    Loving all the new fab projects you've been making.

    I love this all aboard stuff - it's awesome!! Can't wait to get crafting with it.

    When you're in the office next, maybe you could point out that 'stationery' is spelt with an e for envelope too... lol.

    Keep up the blogging - so proud of you my dear friend.
