So thankfully the internet is working a little faster tonight so I am still going slow but not half an hour to load one page slow :-(

This month we have 3 FABULOUS sponsors and a fantastic challenge, the CT girls have created some stunning examples for you so hopefully you all play along, to keep these blogs running we need your support for the challenges and site :-)

Have fun :-)

We have closed our other business to focus wholly on Scraptherapy, opening a Paper Craft Bricks and Mortar store in Babinda, FNQ to run in conjunction with the online site. During the last 2+ years we have learnt a whole load of stuff about e-commerce, scrapbooking, cardmaking and the people who love these hobbies.

At you will find a fantastic gallery filled with inspiring ideas, a great community of ladies and an odd guy or two in our online forum. Our Design Team backed up by our Big Sisters offer regular competitions and challenges to help you find your mojo, and a chance to win a shopping voucher or two. Then of course there is the shop where we hope you will find all the latest Linkand greatest products at great prices. If you can’t find what you are looking for feel free to contact me at and check to see if we can get it in for you. We often can.

Our freight charges for orders up to $25 is $9.00, orders between $25 to $100 stay at $6 and orders over $100 are now free. I love scrapbooking and Danny can whip up a pretty good card, but our true passion is excelling in great customer service, which we hope to continue to do for years to come.

Scrap Therapy have donated a $25.00 voucher.

Handmade By Suzanne stocks all your favourite scrapbooking and crafting brands at reasonable prices. New stock is arriving weekly and we recognise that customers are seeking the latest and greatest which is where a lot of our time is spent researching to keep up with it all. Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter or Like us on Facebook to keep up to date with the latest product arrivals.

We offer customer service beyond your expectations with a policy of “customers for life”. Orders are shipped within 24 hours of payment received and in most cases the same day. We also understand being Perth based may be a disadvantage but it means we can keep our prices low and we work extra hard to ensure we are your store of preference.

Free postage on orders over $50 (Australian Addresses Only) and a flat rate of $5.00 postage on all other orders. Small orders are welcome and we only charge what it costs us to send. E-mail for a quote otherwise we will offer to refund where the postage will be less.
All orders are sent with tracking at no extra cost so you have peace of mind.
