Sharon has made this beautiful lollie bag using the cream interlocking card from the Regal Craft range. These are also available in Turquoise and white. As you can see  the snickers bar fits perfectly. Easy to make with the card pre -cut and just add some creases. Sharon has added a design of cut out butterflies to add a bit of bling

All stock in the shop is now reduced by 50% and as we are closing the doors on the 20 September don't delay on stocking up big time like me.


I believe this card may be a Heather creation. Using a pre-cut scallop edge card from Regal Craft she has chosen a couple of tulip images and covered one with a film type clear sheet to give the effect of a film strip. This is a very simple but effective card that could be changed to suite anyone for any occasion.

The boss has finally decided on a final closing date.


Thursday, 29 August 2019


Good news people! Regal Craft Cards is still open and looks like it will be for around for about another three weeks.  The web site will be closed down as of the 6th of September but the shop will remain open while it is still being supported. While many of the popular items have gone, I have been raiding the stores upstairs and have found many treasures, many of which  have not been seen in the shop before. So pop in and see what we have!   Look out to see if the pink flag is still flying outside the shop or ring us on 03 6331 4222 to see if we are open if you want to call in and get some more bargains!


This is a tasty card put together by Sharon which would make a great invitation for a tea party or maybe a teeenager's birthday. The card is a pre-cut cupcake from the Regal Craft range so all you need do is decorate in your favourite colours. Sharon has added a bit of bling in the form of Kindy Glitz and some sticker circles and pearls.

This is another of Sharon's  { tea time} cards. Made from the ready made tea cup cards available at Regal Craft Cards. She has used pretty papers to decorate the cup  and plainer paper for the base. Accents are border stickers and a flower to lift the design. Sharon has then slit the base and folded the card so that it sits up. In this instance the card can'not be flattened for postage but what a great idea for a place setting at a party.


 Hello people, good to catch up with you again. Computer once again had a hickup. So just to let you know that the shop is still open at this stage until some time in September. The regal craft cards website  is shutting off on the 6th of September.
Lots of goodies have been discovered in the clean up and have been confiscated  for you lucky shoppers in the shop so don,t miss out.
Many shelves, desks etc are popping up for sale also so if you are in the market for such things you are welcome to check them out.

Sharon has kindly helped out by making a series of cards to take us out  till we close. All the cards have a tea time them. Using the pre-cut out cards from Regal Craft. All you need to do with these cards is decorate them with pretty papers etc. The first one we will feature is the teapot. Done in beautiful blues and golds using simple border stickers and a baby blue bow. Sharon has made it into a lovely thank you card any body should be thrilled to receive.


You may have noticed that I didn,t do an update last week. This was not because we have closed  or I was too lazy.  All the various machines at work have  decided to go on strike including the computer so the report could not be written.
To point out the obvious we are still operating and there are still many bargains to be had. Many of the card packs work out to be a quarter of the original price but they are going fast.
                                                               The cards on the left are some more lovely thank you cards
                                                               from our customers.Both of them have lots of bling on.
                                                               Thank you so much for your kind thoughts. Appreciated.

You may have noticed that the window is looking a little bare as the papers have been moved to elsewhere in the shop. We haven,t run out of them yet. A table has been put in the window groaning with bargain priced cards. So hurry in and grab a deal and don,t miss out.


Sharon made this bendy card from a 12x12 card piece. She has used a Kaiser embellish pack to create interest and quite a few word pieces. As you can see the top fold is slotted into the 2nd fold which in turn folds into a slit in the back panel.

Friday, 12 July 2019


It is a bit hard to see in this photo, but there is a congratulations greeting on the back panel peeking through the flowers. The decorations are from a sparklelight  3d sheet and the flowers are suspended on strips of acetate. Again, hard to see but the theme is in green and white which gives it a fresh and delicate look. For those of you not familiar with box cards there are plenty of web sites with instructions on how to make them. They look a lot harder than they are to make.  The box squashes  up to fit into an envelope the same as a normal card.


These are some more lovely cards sent to the boss and staff thanking us for service over the years. It has been our pleasure to help you out with your questions and offer suggestions and solutions. We have met some wonderful people and made some fine friends.
Still no set date for closing yet.
 Still plenty of bargains to be had.

A very nautical take on this postcard. Of course to look at it you would just think it is a plain card and a great one for men, but no. This is a postcard which if you turned it over you would see that the reverse is printed ready for you to post off to the lucky recipient. See postcard image no. 1.
This card has utilised dies twine and some adhesive pearls to add interest.

Friday, 28 June 2019


This postcard is one of mine. Iv'e made it a bit more generic than the others so can be used for any destination. If you added thing like wild animals it could be an African safari as the map is of this area.
Bear in mid that postcards are generally sent without an envelope so they need to be flat and not have bits that can catch on the automatic machines the post office use.

The monthly challenge the Regal staff had for the face book page is no longer shown on that site so you get first look.

Making your own postcards can be fun and can lead to some fine art samples such as this one shown.

I believe this one is done by Sharon and looks very Parisian or certainly European. As you can see this picture also includes an image of the pre-printed reverse of the card. All you need to do is fill in the name and address and send off to some lucky person.
In the coming weeks there will be a couple of more samples to inspire you to make your own postcards.

These are a few of the cards some of our lovely customers have sent to the boss and the team to say thankyou. I'm pretty impressed.

My goodness, what a week!! Since the announcement that Regal Craft Cards is closing, the place has erupted and stock is flying off the shelves, particularly cards. If  you need to stock up on cards we suggest you don't leave it too long. Many designs have already gone. Bear in mind these cards at Regal are manufactured by Regal Press and not available elsewhere. 30% off all stock while it lasts.

Tania has used bright colours here to make an eye popping impact of this flower pot card.  By highlighting the hexaginal shapes with black it creates a very striking card.
Many people do not decorate the inside of the card but Tania has spent time to make the inside front cover as attractive as the rest of the card.
By using pearl blobs to match the papers she has created a bit of depth to this card.
The card is a pre- made flower pot shaped card from Regal Craft Cards.


Hello crafter's  another  week has disappeared and we are one week closer to closure. No we don't know when that will be but depend on weeks rather that months.  When we are gone we are gone. I suggest if you want to restock especially with those more popular items, you do not delay. Don't forget there is 30% off everything in the shop including those items already marked down.
There are still a few outstanding gift vouchers so if you own one or have given one to someone, pop in and use it very soon or miss out.
A number of the cards we have made to display are also available for purchase so if there is an idea you especially were impressed with now is the time to grab some.

Hello everyone, this is Janet here with you today. Just thought I would post my first ever blog to announce that as of today, the Regal Craft Shop is having a  Retirement Sale. What this means for you is that EVERTHING in our shop has been reduced in price by 30%!  It is in-store personal shopping only & a case of the early bird gets the worm!
If you are one of the lucky people who currently has one of our gift vouchers, then now would be the ideal time to come in & spend it!

Janet's philosophy is "too many flowers are never enough". This is one of Regal Craft's standard pre- cutout cards and instead of having it so that the card opens as per usual Janet has put  a band around the whole card to create a stand and holds it all together. Using a set of flower dies and adding a bit of bling to the centres  to finish off.
 This card is pretty impressive.

 This card is a limited edition turquise single fold available at Regal Craft cards. The background sheet is navy blue and the I have chosen a couple of sea inspired papers to compliment the mermaid which is a 3d sheet. The embellishments are from a Kaiser pad and the greeting is mounted on double sided tape then a piece of string added underneath just to add a different texture and interest.
This card would be ideal for a young girl.
I love mermaids and think there should be more of them.

Another step card idea!  You can tell they are a favourite as they always look like you are extremely clever and of course the card is already made for you so all you have to do is to  decorate it.
In this case the theme is wedding (just in case you needed this explanation!) and grey and olive green has been used to pick up the colours in the decorations. The darker grey colour helps to make it pop and with it recessed in the back, also gives the card some depth. The dots across the front of the card comes from a length of ribbon.
