everytime I find someting on a layout in the gallery that I absolutely have to have, I find out it is from Australia. I have seen wrought iron fences, cloud flourishes and more. You have some great products down under!

I'll be carrying some great Australian embellishments from Flourish With a Bling. Just waiting for my shipment to arrive.

The chippie gates and flourishes are most likely from Dusty Attic, an Australian company. I think some of the ladies here sometimes group together to make bulk orders so the shipping isn't crazy. I've gotten a few pieces in my monthly kit club and they're AWESOME!!

Funny most of the things in my local are from the US! I love Kaisercraft (I have an outlet not too far from home) but I think most of our products are expensive because the exchange rate has been so poor in the past. Now that it's nearly on par with the US$ I've been buying more things online and just using my local for cardstock, classes and other consumables like adhesives.

LOL...Most of my customers are from Australia! Even more so since I started doing group buys and special orders!

Kaisercraft Flourishes can now be found here at the site Superstore!

I received both of the dressforms (as seen below) from a friend in Australia. But now because of it, I think I also now need 1 of everything, as well!

I LOVE my Kaisercraft stuff! I used the candelabra with the after 5 papers on a card pictured in my gallery. Their papers are quite inexpensive compared to other brands on the market here in Australia too.

I wish Scrapbook.com would become a stockist of the Aussie brand "ScrapFX", they have some incredible wood/chipboard embellishments and die-cuts. Dusty Attic is gorgeous too. Sigh.

Which state do you live in? Because I know that there are two scrapbook stores within a 15 minute driving distance from my house both with an AMAZING selection of items.

Hi Tam I'm in Cairns and go to a store in Babinda (near Innisfail) called Scrap Therapy. They're on facebook and have their own website. They have flat rate shipping Australia wide. They have a lot of things in store that aren't on their website yet so if you see something that you want but they don't have it pictured on their website just give them a call - Danny and Lee-Anne are lovely and are very competitively priced. I've gotten a couple of things from SB.com but you've got to spend a fair bit of money to make it worth the shipping. They have the cheapest distress inks I've seen anywhere in Australia!

Hi, I live in the NT but will be moving to QLD or NSW at the end of the year, we still aren't sure which one it will be as we have 'positives' and 'negatives' for both but either one will be great as they have more scrap stores than what we have here (none)!

You'd have to move to Queensland - much nicer place ;-)

I've been to QLD several times and loved it more each time i went back, at the moment my partner and I are looking at MT Isa or Ballina/Lismore area as thats where his family are in NSW, so cant wait to get out of the NT and move to a place that has ACTUAL paper craft stores!
