[03/04/20]   Buttons, a farthing a pair!
Come, who will buy them of me?
They're round and sound and pretty,
And fit for girls of the city.
Come, who will buy them of me?
Buttons, a farthing a pair!

Lo! our buttons have been uploaded onto our website, they're round and sound and pretty 😄

[02/19/20]   All our paperpacks and stencils have been uploaded onto our website, happy shopping scrapbookers :)


Great news! We have recently received some new dies and added them to our website. Here is a sneak peak . . .


We will be continuing to load up our stock but here are a few dies we have received and will be adding shortly.

[11/20/19]   Good afternoon. I firstly want to apologise that our website is taking a little longer than expected to be completely ready. I will be adding the rest of the items soon. In the mean time I will post any new dies we receive as we receive them. Thank you for your support - we really appreciate it.


A few of the amazing art pieces that are available for purchase in store. If you want to make them yourself we offer classes and the materials so that you can personalise it and really make it your own. Keep crafting!


A few more of our custom lasercut designs. Draws that are ideal for storing trading cards, display boxes, awards cut into perspex and palettes useful as is or as a base for a stunning artwork.


A journal made with envelopes as a base and lots of pockets, tags and folders. Great as a gift for a friend and personalised it with some photos and your favourite moments.

Here at Great Impressions we don't believe in wastage. Here are a few pics of an up-cycled Sherry bottle. Using a mixed media technique, some scraps of old printed paper, gel medium, metallic paints and a whole bunch of odds to create a magnificent center piece.

A few white porcelain tiles that have decorated with alcohol inks and stamps in a frame design.


A stunning mandala created using dot art. Done on a wooden circle with Dala craft paint. This beauty is destined to be a clock.
