Block printing specialists - online craft supplies, workshops & textile holidays
Hone your scrapbooking skills
Scrapbooking is one of the most popular paper crafting pastimes, and Colouricious have lots of wonderful ideas and videos to show you how the creative use of block printing can take your scrapbooking to the next level.
Not only do we have lots of videos showing you how you can use lovely block printed sheets to enhance your scrapbooks and the images you put in them, but we also have a video from Linda and Just Scrapbooking showing you how you can make a scrapbook as well! It is well worth watching.
We have a section in our online store for scrapbookers which has loads of different things that you can use to enhance your scrapbooks. We have some lovely stencils, blocks and trimmings that would all be perfect for a scrapbooker. Why not go and take a look.

Spring is in the air!
There is definitely a feeling that spring is in the air in the UK and we were delighted to get a lovely range of butterflies and dragonflies from our wood carvers.They are beautifully intricate and would look fantastic on any block printing project. You can check them out in our Latest Arrivals section or you can click on the images of some of the sets we are highlighting below.
Come with us to India
When you read this newsletter, we will be on our last few days of our Textile Treasure Hunt in India. It has been a truly wonderful tour and if you have been following us on Facebook, you will have seen some of the wonderful scenery, sights and fantastic stitching techniques that we have all seen. I know I am very passionate about our trips to India, but everybody that comes with us has such a fantastic time and they all say how truly enlightening and spiritual India is.
Our trips to India do get fully booked quickly. We have organised trips to Jaipur and they are now almost all fully booked until September 2017. (There are a few reservations left in our January trip, but you need to move quickly to grab the space.)
If you want to go to India before 2017, then we do have some spaces on our trip to Rajasthan in November. Like all our trips to India, this will be a full-on tour of the sights and experiences of this wonderful North Western region of India. We will get to see lots of village crafting and of course, the world famous Pushkar Camel Fair.
If you would like to join us on our trip to Rajasthan, or any of the tours and holidays that we organise, then head over to the holiday section of our website where you will find the holiday booking form where you can reserve your place. We would love for you to join us.
We are getting lots of entries for our super competition. Last year we offered a space on one of our trips to India and we are doing the same this year, but also giving the winner the option to win £1,000 in cash if they want. All you have to do, is head over to our website and purchase any of our competition sets. Not only will you get the lovely blocks or silk printing kit, but you will also be entered into the competition. One entry for every competition set you purchase.
