I am a happy enabler! Below are some of my favourite places to shop in New Zealand. The shops listed here stock top quality stamps and dies, cardstocks and inks. Most offer online shopping, classes and the ability to order specific products in – it always pays to ask!

I’ve had the fun of purchasing directly from Craftables at their booth at SENZ. A great range of card making and scrapbooking supplies, tools, adhesives and kits.
Two notable things about Craftables – they have a brilliant range of Kiwiana dies! Word dies such as Kia Ora, whanau, mana and aloha. Other NZ elements such as the NZ map, silver fern and a cute kiwi.
Plus, they have a neat little electronic kit and extra accessories to create ‘light up’ cards. Included in these kits are little LED bulbs, copper tape and even a couple of batteries along with full instructions. At just $15.95, these are a very fun addition to the craft stash.
SENZ (Scrapbooking Expo New Zealand) is a papercraft show where shops and exhibitors gather under one roof for an amazing day/weekend of shopping and crafting experiences. There are classes, demonstrations, make & takes, opportunities to try things out and discover new products and companies. The Auckland event is usually held mid-late July. 2020 will feature the first South Island show in April! Subscribe to their newsletter below to keep up to date.
