With Christmas fast approaching, wow only 23 days to go not sure how many shopping days that is but it seems to have rushed up awfully quickly!
Deb Wisinski has used the Green Tara Metal swirls White and Silver Grey petals and Burgundy Silk and Swarovski flowers to frame this gorgeous family christmas photo.
With Winter approaching for those in the Northern Hemisphere Deb has done this lovely layout of their home under snow last year. Those of us in the south will meanwhile be sweltering under the hot Summer sun and perhaps dreaming of having a White Christmas one year.
Deb has used Green Tara Black and Silver Grey petals to great effect with the added sparkle of the silk and swarovski flowers in the centre. The Green Tara metallic silver Maple leaves add to the cool effects of the page

Seaside Layout

Peta Burrows has used the new mesh ribbon to good effect on this seaside scene. The finishing touch of the small sea shells really add to the composition.
The new ribbons have been a huge hit with one of our New Zealand clients saying that her staff nearly got rsi from cutting and selling our ribbon at SENZ so much so that they nearly sold out of it all!

New Design from Deb Wisinski

Something really different from our Designer Deb Wisinski in the US. Great work Deb!

If you have a layout or off the page piece you would like featured just drop us a line at

Back From Orlando

Back again after CHA in Orlando. It was great to see all the other exhibitors and meet lots of new people.
Everyone was really helpful and welcoming.
We came away with lots of new customers and some great contacts. We are already planning CHA in Annaheim in January next year!
Had a couple of days R&R at Amelia Island (just Nth of Jacksonville) with a dear friend of Alison's on the way home. Great to relax in the sun and have my first swim in the Atlantic.
Lots of summer storms while we were in Florida which led to our flights being delayed in Jacksonville and Atlanta on the way back and ended up missing our connecting flight to Sydney.

Delta were great once we got to LA and put us up for the day and rescheduled us onto a Virgin flight, so we had the day in LA.

Caught a bus up to Santa Monica and checked out the shops and the Baywatch beach, had a coffee by the beach but didn't get to the water the sand between the water and promenade would have to be about 250-300 metres, my torn calf muscle just wasn't up to the walk thru the sand! Really wanted to swim in both the Atlantic and Pacific within 24 hours.

Over all the jet lag and back into it with a vengeance.

The above shot is from the show, taken on an Iphone so not great quality!

Yet another one of Angellas' beautiful creations! 

Well we have finally been dragged kicking and screaming into the world of blogging! We see this as a work in progress and would love any suggestions on what you would like to see here and how to develop the blog as we go along. 
Our initial thoughts are that we would love to showcase your work here when you use any Green Tara products in either layouts, cards, off the page projects or any other creative use you may find for the products.

We will have contributions from our talented team of designers plus of course other contributions.

So give us your suggestions, ideas and submissions and of course your comments
