July is finally to an end and what a month it has been, late June saw a massive change to the Studio as you know it. If you’ve already stopped by, or you’ve been keeping up to date on our social medias @trishascraftystudio on Facebook and Instagram then you already know we have had some new, exciting events and social clubs running and more to come.
So lets have a look at what’s been happening at The Crafty Studio this month.
July really kicked off with Crop Day on the 17th. What a inspiring and creative time that was!
The next day Tim Holtz officially revealed his newest Distressed Ink Collection, Prize Ribbon. A beautiful royal blue colour that we absolutely adore. P.S. It is available in store now!
On the 19th we saw Cynthia’s Watercolour Workshop, she showed us how to create with watercolours in unique and interesting ways!
We also started our brand new Mixed Media Social Club. So you can look forward to creating some beautiful mixed media works every Monday night at 5pm.
And for all you Acrylic lovers out there, we restocked all of our Amsterdam Acrylic Paints! Doesn’t the fully stocked shelf look great!

No, I am not closing, but… I will not be a traditional retail scrapbooking store.
I was too nervous about opening the type of “store” I wanted to originally – but I have decided it is time to take a risk in this ever-changing world.
So the store will become its namesake…
Trisha’s Crafty STUDIO.
It will not be a typical retail store, you will not walk in and see stock everywhere.
You will instead see lots of workshop tables, crafts projects underway, people using up their stash from home and chatting with fellow crafters.
Education classes and social clubs during the day and at night for us all to have some fun time creating together.
Yes, there is still retail but it is more focused on Core Lines and Mixed Media Supplies.
It is all about the social crafting experience and education, not just a store selling you stuff.
But I still need to pay the rent, power, insurances and core stock items. So to do this, the Studio will operate as a membership service.
You will have the choice to just shop or join up and recieve the extra benefits and rewards as a member.
The choice is yours.
We will have more information coming on the 13th of May for you all to come in and see what it is all about.
MASSIVE CLEARANCE SALE 50% off starts 24th of May.
The clearance sale will start on the 24th of May to the 24th June.
In the meantime, we need to make way for the new store format and need to clear some stock we are no longer stocking as floor stock.
So we will have a month long 50% off sale on all Scrapbooking papers and Scrapbook Embellishments, a selection of chipboards, flowers, dies, stamps, kids crafts, paper toles, Quilling papers and Foil stockers will also be included in this sale.
Not everything is on sale as I will still be stocking core lines and mixed media supplies.
To make way for the new look of the Studio we will be closed from the 25th of June to the 13th of July.
ABSTRACT PRINCESS CARD CLASS | 12PM – 2PM | 25TH MARCH 2021 | $20PP
That beautiful lady image is back on the Studio 73 Papers, and Candice just has to whip up cards again.
In this class you will create 3 cards and a bookmark. One of these is an easel card, one of the best ways for the recipient to be able to display this gorgeous creation you give to them, or if you’re anything like Candice, you will keep it on display for a while first.
There is a minimal amount of fussy cutting, we let the beautiful design of the paper shine through. Bring your basic toolkit and favourite pink ink (Candice used Tattered Rose and Milled Lavender) along with your favourite Stickles.
Please note that no instructions will be handed out, however, feel free to take your own notes during the class.
Bookings only taken via phone or in store, no Facebook/Messenger bookings taken. Store number is 3557 0037 and the cost is $20 per person.
Join us for our social club day – Coffee, Chat & Create at the Studio. These will run from 9:30am to 3:30pm on selected says and cost $10 per person.
Coffee, Chat & Create days are designed for you to be able to pop in, sit down, chat and create with our teachers on hand to help you finish your projects that you might need some help with.
It is also that perfect day for you to come along and finish any projects that you did not complete in our classes.
The cost is $10 per person and includes a drink from out E.P.I.C. Ipswich café which has barista made tea, coffee and hot chocolate with the choice of soy, almond, lactose free skim and full cream milk available.
If you do not feel like a hot drink, we have a wide selection of juices, waters and soft drinks including Coke and Pepsi ranges.
Our café will also be open for lunch service with a selection of fresh or toasted sandwiches to burgers and chips.
