WELCOME back to the New Aubrey Grove

Welcome and Hello!

Well I am back into the craft inspirations mode, and finally getting myself back into the place I belong... creating with paper, ribbon, twine, lace... Fun I say, what brings you JOY and makes you feel Happy.

The last few months has been tough, I have embraced the time to reflect on what I do that makes me happy and that is papercraft!

I will be back in the coming weeks, uploading all my cards on either Etsy or Shopify.. not sure which I like best yet.. If you have a favourite I 'd like to hear your thoughts...  

I have also collaborated my 3 pages all into one rebranding it Aubrey Grove Cards and CO...  incorporating... Cards, Papercraft and all that brings me JOY at Aubrey Grove!

So hopefully you can keep on following me, and creating along with me...

Thank you so much for your ongoing support, its so greatly appreciated....

Much Love,
Rach

Cards Glorious Cards.... so many uses..........

Welcome Back....


How have you all been, keep safe and well I hope during the worldwide pandemic....  For a year that has so many highs and lows... it has sure gone fast for me..... and I hope your year has been treating you well...

Aubrey Grove Cards and Papercraft is taking a
new turn... I am still here... love creating and showcasing new creations for you all... I now have my Etsy store up and running a lot better than it has been and I have also received my first ETSY sale and even a review... so exciting.  I love making custom creations so if you have a special occasion, please send me a message and I would love to help....

My markets have slowed down and I am thinking of focusing on my signature cards for ladies and girls more than my recent creations and too adding my Framed Papercraft to my mix.  I am still currently a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator so if you are after any of their wonderful products I am happy to help... if you need help creating too please let me know....always happy to help out!

Do you ever offer a Random Act of Kindness.. I am in a card group that does just that.. we send our handmade cards to anyone in our group, and what a wonderful surprise it is to receive one without expecting.... A card is more than just paper... its can be a token that hold happy words, words of thankfulness, words of hope and words that just say what we need to say....  They can be framed and also keep as memory keepsakes.. in the world we live in today sadly the sending of cards is fading away... why not bring back that gift... 

I am gifting a bunch of my cards to my local Save the Children Shop in Willunga...so they can receive a little money dollars during the time we are now living in and that will go back to help those that need...

I am also getting back on top of my card giving and sending cards and also rejoining my Random Act of Kindness Group and get those cards sent out.... 

So many cards to choose from which will be kindly donated to Save the Children... Willunga soon...
Would love to hear the Random Act of Kindness that you have received or done ... 

Enjoy your day, and remember the gift of a card is more than you know!

Keep Warm and SAFE xxx

A little change for Aubrey Grove Cards.....


Hello,  

Sending you all so much Love, Hope & Strength. 



Firstly I hope my post reaches you in a happy safe place... the world we live in today is so different to the everyday that we are used to... our routines have changed, our dreams have differed and/or put on hold... our wishes or accomplishments we wished to strive for and achieve have also changed.  But one thing is that this is not forever, our lives will be returned to us, but for the moment we must be safe, more aware of what we do, and most importantly stay home!

Many people have lost employment, closing their business doors...  so on that note i am joining with my dear friend and my stockist Corina of I am Tall Poppy in gorgeous Willunga, SA.. and I am temporary closing Aubrey Grove Cards... it has been an enormous decision, as I do have my Etsy Store, but I feel it has been operating for some time now (previously at BigCartel) and there has been no traffic happening there with no sales,  so while its quiet and whilst I have my 4 children home with me, I will take a small break and I will return one day soon I hope... once we are all back up and running and being able to go to the Birthday Party, that Wedding, that Birth where we can shower the people we love, admire, cherish with a token of a card and/or gift.  

In the meantime I will catch up on my other JOY memory keeping and scrapbooking... believe me there is a lot of catching up to do... so i will be over on my Papercraft at Aubrey Grove (facebook) and/or Sharing the Love of Papercraft (instragram) pagess

I say from the bottom of my heart thank you so so much for you YES you the ones whom have supported Aubrey Grove Cards over the last 5 years, it is something that brings me so much JOY and I will keep creating in the background, so I have so many cards to sell at my Markets when they are back up and running, and to restock I am Tall Poppy in gorgeous Willunga, SA.


Please remember if you are in need of a card  I am still here in the background so please send me a private message here or on my FB, Insta or Etsy pages and I will return your message asap and will be more than happy to post onto you.



Keep Well, Keep Safe, Keep HAPPY, Be Kind
See you all again sooner than later....
Thank you so so so much,
Love Rachel

This is a card I created for him yesterday... nothing like the last minute... It is of his Tennis Idol... Naomi Osaka!... We were so lucky to attend the Australian Open in Melbourne again this year... and he got so close to his tennis fav, even went along solo and purchased his own ticket so he could see her play!  

I love how we can create with anything... a photo or 2 and added to a card to create a special momento also as a memory token!  Photos don't just need to go in that photo album or scrapbook, we can embellish them add texture and create an item that can be used as our decor!

Happy Wednesday everyone.. and if there is anything at all you would like to know... please let me know and I am more than happy to help!

Happy papercrafting,

A crazy busy time of year.... but wonderful too!


Hello everyone,


How is all you Christmas Planning going...... 


It really feels like Christmas when you take the time to see Father Christmas and see all the beautiful Christmas Decorations throughout the Department Stores, and the Rundle Mall.....

I thought I would send you all a note to say how grateful I am of all your support throughout 2019, I absolutely love creating and you all allow me to do that, by purchasing either from my stalls, I am Tall Poppy in Willunga and Jacks Place in Goolwa... I say THANK YOU!

I was planning on attending the upcoming Willunga Quarry Market this Saturday, but I have been rather busy of late, completing my study and placement hours, my cards have taken a back seat sadly...  So sorry to say I have chosen not to attend this round... Hopefully I can get enough creations together for the upcoming January Quarry Market!  I will be back soon.  

If you are in need of cards, please remember that they are readily available instore at I am Tall Poppy in Willunga and Jacks Place (main street) of Goolwa!

Alternatively my Etsy store or send me an email and I can help you direct!

Once again thank you for all your ongoing support.... Wishing you a Magically Wonderful Christmas...

Follow Your Dreams!



A Dream Catcher Creation 


I absolutely love creating with this stamp set 'Follow Your Dreams' and 'Chase Your Dreams' Framelits, but sadly they are both now  retired items of Stampin' Up! an are no longer available to purchase. 

I absolutely love creating Dream Catchers and adding so may layers to give them a layered 3d effect.

The current items I have used in these 2 cards are as follows
Noble Peacock Speciality Designer Papers
Foil acsents add elegance to this jewel-toned paper
12 sheets: 4 of each of 3 single-sided designs 12"x12" square
$25.00 product no. 14949

Noble Peacock Foil Sheets
6 single-sided sheets, 2 each of 3 colours 12"x12" square
$17.50 product no. 149495

Woven Thread Trim
5/8" (1.6cm) $14.00 
product no. 149499

There other items on these creations are from my own stash including the patterned paper and twines.  The Brads which is used to hold the layers together and secure the dream catcher to the base of the card are those of retired Stampin' Up! brads.

Why so many retired products, one - i stock up on my favs and 2 - Stampin' Up! release new products annually..

These two creations have now been sold and some lucky person will be receiving them, as they say the greatest token to receive is a handmade card... for any reason at all! 

I can create another if you wish for one... they are priced at $6.00 each you can order one via sending me a private message.  I will also be adding this design to my Framed Card Frames.. keep an eye out for them soon.

What is your favourite project your currently creating... would love to see your creations.... if you  need some Stampin' Up! products let me know and any guidance is available to....


Till Next Time...

Enjoy the world of papercraft and the wonderful sunshine we are now receiving!

Cheers,
Rach!

It is almost that time of year again! 


Yes Christmas!


Who loves crafting more at this time of year, there are so many fabulous things we can make and give for gifts...


Who else loves to receive something homemade!  


My Nana and Grandma, always looked forward to what I created for them each year at Christmas... that is truly one thing I miss each year!


A quick look at some of my favourite things.. from the recently launched Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.


I just love the Advent Calendar... may just need to get one... I might get my 4 kids crafting with this one.... or make one and have them take it in turns each night with something special in those little treasure boxes..... so much fun!

The ideas are endless...


Will give you a more detailed post in coming days... especially outlining those gorgeous cards I made at a card class today; with my leader Cheryll Miller of Sense of Whimsy!
