Have an awesome month and keep an eye on FACEBOOK for picture of new kits and classes.
Happy scrapping, Elizna
June was a very busy month and we have enjoyed lots of awesome and fun classes. Thank you ladies, for being such awesome friends and thank you for spreading the love and appreciating your scrapping friends the way you do...... It is heartwarming to see that people still care.....
All the classes for June ended today, as I will be taking a short break with my family for the winter holiday. The shop will re-open on 11 July and classes will start on 14 July....so there is time before the very busy 3rd term starts to fit in a class or two....;-)
We did a lovely mini album class with beautiful FABSCRAPS papers, using gesso and distress inks to colour the cover. Just about all the ladies finished their mini albums in class....and just had to add the photos at home...:-D. Good preparation pay off....LOL!
We scrapped a beautiful layouts this month with Celebr8's awesome Protea (Picture Perfect) range.....and I will soon have another layout ready with the left-over papers from this class. This was a scrap-your-stash class.
We even had time to fit in another two kits.....
This kit was made up with the Carta Bella Old World Travel Paper Collection.....and what beautiful papers these are...... This kit had an add-on set of notes to complete another double page layout.....
The last kit for June was the SCHOOL layout with the beautiful AUTHENTIQUE papers...I still have a few of these kits available...limited stock.
To all my clients....thank you for a wonderful JUNE. I hope all the school reports will only carry good news......and that those that are leaving on holiday over the next few days will travel safely. See you in July....xx

Thank you for all your support to make this expo such a success.
After Christmas in the Home I closed the shop for the December school holidays and took a rest until 7 January 2016 when I re-opened for the new year. Both my children had birthdays in January and my husband completed the half-ironman in East London. My daughter also started high school...definitely a scrap-worthy month :-D

NEW KIT FOR SEPTEMBER:
Title: SMILE AND WAVE
A beautiful double-page multi-photo layout with fresh and funky colours...
Made with the pretty SOAK UP THE SUN Collection from Carta Bella.
Beautiful hot air balloons and a gorgeous chipboard title round this layout off beautifully...
I have a few of the beautiful Teresa Collins NOTATIONS kits still available.
Another beautiful & simplistic multi-photo double page layout.
This layout is finished off nicely with beautiful burlap flowers clusters.
You can build your own title with the lettering sheet included in your kit.
These classes are very popular as it is a feel-good-factor to use up "old stash"... We have so much old paper in our cupboards that are still so very pretty and we just never sit down on our own to use this paper...these classes provide the opportunity to use up our old and still pretty papers and embellishments... In this class you can use any papers from you stash to "copy" my layout. I also provide a full colour picture and measurements to complete your own page.
Last month I did a double-page layout for the scrap-your-stash class with this pretty paper from BoBunny, The Avenues Collection:
This month I made a new layout with the left-over papers from the layout above to make another beautiful double-page layout... In this way you will be able to use up a whole range of papers that are sitting in your cupboard... this is the class that I will teach on 10 and 12 September.
Remember to book your seat in any of the advertised classes.
You are also welcome to do any other scrap-your-stash layout in this class.
Scrap-It Design Studio goes online today!....happy dance...(smile)...!
