First up, we have 2Crafty Chipboard returning as a sponsor this month.

2 Crafty strives to offer affordable and versatile laser cut chipboard products to the Australian and International craft market. 2Crafty’s products are manufactured here in Australia and offer products suitable for scrapbooking, cardmaking, altered art, invitations and mixed media, and with over 1000 designs, every area has been covered.

2Crafty’s owner Vanessa, stumbled on the demonstration of the laser cutter at one of the Sydney craft fairs back in 2006, and although her background was Human Resources and payroll, her creative mind could see unlimited possibilities, and so began her journey into the world of a craft wholesaler.

2Crafty designs are supported both locally and in the overseas market, and Vanessa strives to offer the highest level of customer support, and is happy to discuss personalized orders with customers via their local scrapbooking store.

2Crafty also offers a fabulous blog that is updated several times a week with projects created from its talented international Design Team.

The 2Crafty website, although a wholesale website, offers you a bird's eye view of all the wonderful designs that it offers. Make sure you check out the stockist list, and don’t be afraid to ask your local store to order products that they may not have in stock.

Here is a sampling of the beautiful 2Crafty chipboard that one CSI player can win this month:

We’re heading outdoors to embrace the autumn and to enjoy all the wonderful colours the nature entertain us with this time of year. Here in Scandinavia, the nature will soon go into its winter sleep and we will embrace every last of its spectacular drama, photograph the beautiful different hues and make it into wonderful memories in our scrapbooks. Our new collection is all about that – autumn, nature, garden, whimsical weather and magnificent colours.

The collection consists of 18 different designs, 2 diecut sheets are included. As always – double-sided, high quality patterned papers.

Also a permanent sponsor for 2016, is Papercut Labs.

We believe papercraft isn’t just about personal creating. It’s about sharing art. Sharing it with a community that loves your art like you do. Sharing it with friends and family who value what you do. Sharing it because you’re proud of what you’ve created. We believe papercraft is inspirational to all who see it. 

At Papercut Labs, we are trying to step outside the norm of papercraft. We are creating resources — whether as online classes or through a weekly newsletter — that play and experiment with the traditional forms of inspiration and creation. You’ll see new things here.

Papercut Labs is donating two awesome classes to two lucky winners-- the Natalie Elphinstone card class, and Jen Hall's mixed media class.
