Kids Card Making Kit, Now Available

Kids Card Making Kit - Koko Vanilla Petites

Up on site you will now find in our Petites Dept our Kids Card Making Kit. This kit is jam packed with papers and stamped images and pre cut shapes, ribbon and embellishments, as well as 10 pre-cut and folded cards and 10 envelopes. This will keep the kids entertained for hours as well as encouraging their creativity and imagination. For full kit contents and more see here. Paper and products will vary with each kit but you can chose a boy theme, girl theme or half of both. You will get more of what you see in the photos on site, it is just a sample. You also get a sheet of card image design samples for the kids to use as a guide.

That's all for now, happy, peaceful Sunday all. Anna

July Kits Only a Few Days Away - October Afternoon, Maya Road, Hambly Screen Prints, Prima Flowrs and more

Here is just the littlest peak of what will be available to purchase on site in July. I just fell in love with the October Afternoon range when I saw it begin to appear on layouts on all the American Sites, so I am very excited that I finally managed to get my hands on it, and am able to offer in on site here. The papers are just stunning and as well as the co-ordinating items to go with them. Just wait until you see the clear stamps, I have put a set aside for myself, I think stamps are fast becoming my weakness! Be sure to check back as the kits will be up on Site on July 1st.

We have just begun the school holidays here in Melbourne, so once again it will be a balance between children and work but I am certainly around throughout the coming weeks to process your orders and also will be loading a few mini kids kits on site today and tomorrow so that you can keep the kids entertained throughout the holidays. They will be in the Petites Section of the Store. Once you have placed an order and paid your pack will sent the next day so you could have a pack early next week to see you through the holidays. I accept PayPal on site now and credit cards can be used to pay via paypal even if you are not a paypal member. Of course if you live locally you can always pick up a kit directly from me.
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Sale on Scapbooking and Craft at Koko Vanilla Designs

Just popping in to say that I have been loading lots of sale items in our 'What's On Sale' department in store. From now until the end of June I will add new items every day.

I have some new scrapping goodies arriving this week and so I need to make room for it all, so take a look daily as I will load stock daily and some items are in limited quantities so once they are sold that's it. Some items are up to 40% off. Its great to stock up on some sale items especially when its great to stay indoors and create, knowing you are all cozy and warm inside on those chilly nights.
Bye for Now. Anna

June Gallery

The June Gallery is meant to be up tomorrow and most of it will be but I just thought I would share a little layout here. I just love all the papers and colour combinations in this month's June Scrapbooking Kit, Candy Coated Garden. Its not too late to purchase a kit as there are a few left, and with 20% off this brings the kit down from $65 to $52 add $3.95 postage that is an absolute bargain considering you also get a wood mounted stamp an ink pad as well as all the gorgeous papers, ribbons, flowers cardstock self adhesive alphabet and a sheet of die cut shapes.

The layout above is of my daughter on her nineth birthday. Its funny because usually I get the photos and then match it to the paper but in this case I had the papers and needed to find the photos to match. So when I came across these in my pile of photos to be organised and scrapped I couldn't believe just how perfect the fit was. The layout just fell together, its so nice to scrap when its all flowing nicely.
So check back on site tomorrow afternoon to see some more fabulous you can use our kits at Koko Vanilla Designs.
See You Anna

Introducing..... Koko Vanilla Petites


I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend. Its a great time for spending quality family time or even time with the self. I am currently reading Eckart Tolle's book, 'The Power of Now.'

Reading this book is really making me aware of just how important it is to be in the present and just how often I am constantly thinking about the next thing and the next thing rather than just being in the now. Slowly I am making a commitment to be present in the now and take each moment and day as it comes. As someone once said to me,' Just do what's in front of you!'. I have acutally written this on a big colourful note and stuck it on a wall in my house where it is visible. I reminds me whenever I am feeling overwhelmed with lots of things needing to be done at once and not sure where to start this note reminds me to just begin somewhere and focus on the task at hand one thing at a time. I am sure I am not alone here as all of us mums tend to multitask to some degree or another. So I hope that my little bit of advice might help you if you are feeling overwhelmed.

Now onto the title of this post. Introducing Koko Vanilla Petites. As there is so much product available and we all seem to accumulate mountains of craft products we have decided at Koko Vanilla to offer half sized kits called Petites. These kits will still be as fabulous as our larger kits but just more condensed so you still get a stunning selection of materials just in a smaller bundle. I was hoping to post a photo here of our first kit but my computer is playing up and not letting me load photos on blogger. So to see our very first in our selection of Petites this ones for the boys in your life, Country Road Trip Petite (as I think the boys have been just a little left out with all the girly products in our other kits.

Well that's all the news for today and remember our June special is 20% off your first purchase at Koko Vanilla Designs, so tell your family and friends. Our low postage rate of $3.95 is both affordable and convenient. So grab a cuppa and browse our store and stock up on some wonderful new products.

Happy Long Weekend
