What’s Happening & Highlights

Hi to all our Paper Flourish girls.
We have just finished our 3rd week. Having said that, Mandii, Ruth and the team feel like we have been here longer, lots of long hours and hard work are starting to pay off.  The shop is looking clean, organised and now we are just waiting for an enormous amount of new stock. It is arriving now but will fill our shelves when it is all here. New ranges, exciting papers, a full range of cardstock in Kaiser and Bazzill,  to ensure you are always able to get that certain colour, how fantastic!! And lots more!!

 

Paper Flourish renovations are still happening. A new powder room for you to use has started, tiles are down, toilet in this weekend, vanity on its way. We feel this is such a great addition for your convenience instead of making the trek down the alleyway to the public toilets which are not renowned for their appeal. Thank you all for your patience through this upheaval, it will be worth it in the end. Watch for our updates.

 

Through March, many of our lessons were booked out. Our April classes go on line Monday so be quick to book into your favourites early as they will fill quickly. Again the teachers have excelled by producing absolutely fabulous pieces of paper craft which you will love to make, display or give as gifts.

 

Paper Flourish will be using a new computer system starting the 1st April (wondering if this is good day to start anything new!). Hoorah! Through this system, we are able to award loyalty points to you. Do not throw away your old cards though as we are hoping to integrate all of your current details into our system through these cards.

 

WOW!! GOOD NEWS!! We have 2 new things happening at the end of March. Firstly, Ruth has offered to run her Photo cards from March again as these classes were totally booked out. If you would like to book in, please ring Paper Flourish to reserve your spot.

Photo Cards with Ruth - $18.00

 

Tuesday 28th March 10am - 12noon

 

A new range of cards!! These gorgeous cards are made with high gloss photo paper and layered to give a 3D effect. This month is a ‘welcome to the girls range’. Ruth has made two for adult family or friends and also a card suitable to give to your daughter, grand-daughter or any ‘young person’. All cards come with a selection of sentiments for you to choose from. You won’t be disappointed with this beautiful range.

 

Tools & Inks Used: Regular tool kit, scalpel, cutting mat, sharp scissors and 2mm thick foam dots (available from Paper Flourish)

 

Suitable for crafters of all skill levels, including beginners

 



 

Secondly, here at Paper Flourish, we are inviting all of you to a Tea Party. Mandii and Ruth would love you to come and spend time with us, get a chance tosee our new look store, have some fun, eat cake and drink coffee.

Thursday 30th March Time: 12noon - 2pm

NEWSLETTER 7 MARCH

Tuesday, 7 March 2017 1:03:44 PM Australia/Darwin

What’s Happening & Highlights
 

Hi from Mandii, Ruth and all the team at Paper Flourish. 

Firstly we would like to say thank you to all our valued customers for your good wishes and copious facebook messages, wishing us all the best in our new endeavour.  It was exciting to see so many of you coming into the shop and spending some time with us.  Mandii is back where she belongs, in the shop, spending time, sharing knowledge and fun with you all.  Ruth will also be sharing time with you all in the shop but will be spending half of her time in an administrative role in the new office at the back of the store.  Both Mandii and Ruth will continue teaching classes as well.  We are looking forward to seeing you all.

 

This is our first newsletter to you and there is soooo much to tell you.   We have so many exciting things planned.  As the market for craft is gravitating towards "online", many of our customers have expressed relief that our physical shop is not closing the doors.  We at Paper Flourish, are wanting to create a "home" for paper crafters. A destination for you to see and touch the product you are wanting to purchase, and get that immediate gratification, to start on a project straight away.   You will be able to enjoy learning craft from experienced teachers who themselves are passionate about craft. Be part of a crafting community, and do what this craft is all about, relax, get away from it all and just have fun!! 

 

To achieve these objectives for you, we are working extra hard and long hours to make this happen.  While you may notice a few things out of place in the store, please be patient with us, it will all come together over the next couple of weeks.  Meanwhile we are going to continue to trade with our usual opening hours so you can pick up your favourite products.   BUT watch this space!!!  In the near future we will be extending our trading hours and will let you know when this happens. We will reveal more exciting developments over the next month.

MARCH kits are now available in store.  Every month the kits offer something different and this month the full kit is beautiful and very pretty.  For those of you who love animals, you are really going to enjoy making the March card kits featuring either a dog or cat theme. These are fun to create and perfect for giving to those who love their pets. 

 

All the original projects, for both the Full Kit and the Card Kits are still displayed in store, so you can see the wonderful dimension and details up close.

 

We thought we should clear some confusion with Paper Flourish people on how the kits work between Paper Flourish and Creative Kit Club.   Tracey and Peter have sold Paper Flourish (the store) to Mandii and Ruth, but are still continuing with their own business which is Creative Kit Club.  We are now their sole exclusive retail outlet in SA, so everyone is able to purchase any of the kits, associated dies as well as your supplies of matching papers, extra printed papers, tapes, glues etc straight through Paper Flourish.  You do not need a subscription to do so, of course there is no postage charge for this service and you will receive loyalty points for your purchase.  If you cannot get into the store you can always ring through an order to Paper Flourish or save an order for next months kit (just so we run out) and pick up when in store. If you are requiring a kit/s to be posted to you, we can do so for a nominal postage charge.

 

If you prefer a monthly subscription, you can subscribe to Creative Kit Club directly through the Uniquely Creative website or by ringing 0435 774573.

 

We hope this is a bit clearer for you all, hope to see you instore soon.

Newsletter 28 February

Monday, 27 February 2017 9:12:56 PM Australia/Darwin

Today I write my very last newsletter to you all.  It's been an absolute pleasure to share my life with you all, you have watched our business take many turns over the years, supporting us through Joshua’s  sickness and many hospital stays and even a surprise baby to join our lives and watch her grow into a beautiful young girl!

 

Tuesday is the last day Peter & I will own Paper Flourish, we hand over to Mandii & Ruth on Wednesday. We have only just thought about our Loyalty program and how this might continue in the future. Unfortunately the Loyalty program will end on Wednesday :(. Peter and I have thought really hard how we might be able to make good for these points you have been collecting and we have come up with an idea how you will be able to use them.

 

You will have 2 weeks to come into Paper Flourish (or give the girls a call on 08 7226 0401 and place your order over the phone) to cash in your loyalty points on a Creative Kit Club of your choice. The new kit comes out on the 5th of March.

 

Paper Flourish currently has Nov, Dec, Jan & Feb in stock 

 

Mandii and Ruth will be installing a new point of sales system in the next few weeks which will include a brand new and exciting loyalty program, but don’t throw away your loyalty card just yet, Mandii and Ruth might still be able to use the same details. I am very sorry for the lateness for us thinking about this, it has all been a bit of a whirl wind over the past few weeks.

 

Once again thanks so much for your support!

 

Love Tracey & Peter

 

What’s Happening & Highlights
 
Hi there PF Peeps
Ruth and Mandii here!

Well Tomorrow is the BIG Day for us and whilst we are super excited, it's also kind of bitter sweet - particularly for Mandii!  Saying goodbye to Tracey from the store, after 6 plus years together is a tough pill to swallow and I know I have some big shoes to fill! :(
Having said that, we know that Tracey is moving on to pursue some new dreams, and we can always find her across the road if we need a fix!  Tracey will also be coming back to teach a couple of times a month so it's more "So Long" than "Goodbye".
 
In the meantime, We'll be busy living up to the Paper Flourish mantra of excellent customer service, and a continuing commitment to an ever changing, and up to the moment range of products and services. We have soooooooo many ideas and plans moving forward - it's going to blow your minds, but just for the first bit we ask that you please be patient with us while we make the transition from Staff Members and Teachers to Business owners. *makes frightened screechy noise*
 
Thank you to all of our friends that have sent us countless messages of support and congratulations! You have no idea how much you all mean to us. I know your going to love what we have in store for you here at PF HQ!!
 
All our Love,
 
Ruth and Mandii. xox

Important NEWS from Paper Flourish - must read

Friday, 17 February 2017 8:16:37 AM Australia/Darwin

Wow, I am just not sure where to start this email... I'm typing this with much emotion, excitement, sadness and so many thoughts running through my head right now, so here goes ........

 

We have had an offer to sell Paper Flourish and we have accepted. It was a decision not made lightly, however I know it's the right one!  Running two businesses for the past couple of years with a baby has not been easy so this is going to lighten the load and allow me to spend more time at home with my family and allow me to give the Creative Kit Club the attention it deserves.

 

So while I am sad to see my 'baby' go, I know it's going to good hands, to people who with love it as much as I have! So who are the new owners ....?

 

Mandii and her business partner Ruth are the new owners & they are both really excited and have a lot of fantastic new ideas. We hand over in a couple of weeks, but it's not a total goodbye, I will still be around the place just moving over to create new and exciting products for you all with Uniquely Creative.

 

 

I will still be teaching classes at Paper Flourish for the next few months and Paper Flourish will be the exclusive bricks and mortar retailer to purchase Creative Kits here in SA!  Paper Flourish will still have all the beautiful Creative Kit Club projects on display and subscribers will still be able to collect their Kits from the store.

 

Kasia and Wendy will both be finishing up with Paper Flourish too and they are coming over to work with me at Uniquely Creative, and I can't wait to share with you all the new and exciting products we will be creating (you will be able to purchasae them from Paper Flourish as well as on our website Uniquely Creative).

 

I am working Monday, Tuesday & Thursday and Sunday next week, my last day in the shop will be Monday 27 Feb, so i would love for you to come in and say 'Hi' if you're around, if you would like to keep up with all the Uniquley Creative and Kit Club News you can sign up to receive these emails over on the homepage of our website (at the bottom) http://www.uniquelycreative.com.au/

 

Make sure you like our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CreativeKitClub/

 

And to keep up with all my personal news, send me a facebook friend request :)  https://www.facebook.com/tracey.l.schulz My profile pic is a bunch of handmade roses :)

 

Thanks for all your support for the past 6 1/2 years! I could not have done it without you all! I will miss you all so much xoxx

 

Going to leave it there before the tears start to flow again :)  



Lots of Love, Tracey, Peter & the Team xxx

 

PS - just a proud Mum moment, Pearl's drawing of a person copying mine, she loves to draw and 'making things'
