Who Are We?


The Wholesaler was founded on 2 April 2006 by Liz Smith, grandmother, business owner and scrapbooker who saw the need for a reliable, local wholesale source of scrapbooking and craft products.
 
Liz fell in love with scrapbooking in 1996 when she was introduced to the hobby on a buying trip in the USA. Her initial love affair with photo albums began as a young mother with the beautiful memory albums she made for her daughters. Over the years Liz has created scrapbooks for many special people in her life including her Mother, daughters, friends and grand children.
 
Liz continues to share her love for scrapbooking with teenagers in her community, and now through us, with you.

Step 2 Once the green light goes on, remove the chipboard quickly using your tweezers. Step 3 Place the foil face down on the bed, then place...

The minute I saw the GoPress and Foil in action I was convinced that it simply had to be in my stash – and I was right. This statement does not go without a warning though…it is very addictive, and you have to make sure you have enough foil on hand – because if you run out well, let’s just leave it at that… I created a few simple Christmas cards when I got the machine using the gorgeous Reindeer and Peace on Earth...
