I-Scrap JHB - OCTOBER Newsletter

Hi everyone,

Sorry I have been very bad on my blog lately.  I am going to endevour to post at least once a month with my schedule and what we got up to in the month !

This past month has just flown by and I cannot believe that Christmas is around the corner.  Have you started making your cards yet?  LOL.

On the 8th I had my double Celebr8 Travel / memories class.  Two amazing double layouts using this stunning range of papers.  Sadly kits are SOLD OUT, but please remember all notes of layouts are for SALE at R 50 per layout.  I will email notes to you.  (includes Silhouette cutting files if applicable)

I was recently asked to teach the "teachers" my faux pewter class at TROCRAFT.  What an honor, although quiet scary to teach your peers.  They enjoyed it though and I am sure you will see many more Faux Pewter layouts around soon.

We then had our First 2016 Scissor Sisters / I-Scrap  Road Trip  to Johannesburg on the 15th and 16th of October.  The PE function is scheduled for the 29th and 30th .  We had so much fun meeting all the girls.  Jenny from I-Scrap PE flew up and it was a great weekend.  I am so looking forward to flying down the end of the month to teach the PE ladies.  (I will be doing the Faux Pewter class in PE on the 28th of October at Scrapbook Nook, so if you are in the area, remember to book !)

Scrap Collections kindly allowed us to "pre launch" the new Travel range of papers at our event and I was fortunate to attend the launch of the new Travel Album on the 17th.   These will be available in store soon in kit format.  Perfect for all kinds of functions, trips, etc.  The Mini Journals are self assembly and include pieces, binding and book clip.  Stunning way to make a personalised gift.    

I just loved this new GETAWAY collection by Scrap Collections and have also created some Doubles and a Single to share.  I will show you next week when sales open for Kits:  
Here is a sneak so long:

I was fortunate enough to attend a FULL NIGHT scrap with Shain De Bruyn over the 21st of October too and managed to complete 3 double layouts and be awake from 6pm till 7am and run my shop after. LOL..   We used the fantastic new range by W&M and the girls loved scrapping till the early hours of the morning. Thanks Shain !
