Liquid Pearls

The remainder of the perfect pearls has arrived and is on the shelves. You can buy 4 perfect pearls in various colour collections. Choose from soft subtle purples, blues and greens, warm rich tones or faux metal.

Liquid Pearls™, a product by Ranger Industries, is a versatile, waterproof pearlescent paint specifically designed for paper craft projects. It comes in small squeeze bottles that have a built in easy flow tip that you directly apply to your projects.
Many paper crafter's use liquid pearls in place of adhesive pearls because they are better value for money, they can be applied in various sizes and in difficult to reach places. Simply squeeze out little drops of the liquid
paint and allow to dry for a wonderful, shimmery card or page accent.

New projects in store...

The team at Create on Garden have been rather busy creating projects for your inspiration.  Here are just a few,  please come into the store for a closer look...

New Gift Wrapping Ideas

I saw recently a very inventive way of wrapping gifts. Use the small wooden letters similar to Kaisercraft or Splosh and choose the recipients initial and tie it onto your present.....voila!

Also there is a large range of bling buckles and brooches available now and they really do finish off a beautifully gift wrapped present.....


We have just received the most beautiful papers and embellishments for invitations.....of course you can use these papers on your cards and scrapbooking as well or even on your gift wrapping...

Many papers are handmade and embossed......just look at some of these samples....our shop has many samples for you to look at for inspiration.

Off The Page Shadow Box Class

"I love this shadow box, it was so much fun to make and the colours are just to die for.. There is so much creative freedom with Off The Page projects, your not just limited to a 12x12 page that way. And most layouts just end up in a album and never looked at which I find extremely sad." said Cassie the teacher and creator of this wonderful class .

You will make your own 12" Shadow Box to keep yourself or give as a perfect Christmas Gift.

You will use a variety of Graphic 45 papers to create your backgrounds and embellishments. You will learn how to create your own flowers, learn how to fussy cut, learn how to colour your flowers to blend in with your page and use products such as glimmermist and crackle paint.

Only 10 places available and this is a one off class so best in best dressed.

Payments must be made when booking.

Cost $40.00 all inclusive.

BYO basic tool kits and adhesives....(good sharp scissors are a must
