We are having such awesome spring weather at the moment (that is if the wind isn't blowing in the windy city) ...
I have just unpacked the box with new stock ... beautiful new Kaisercraft Fallen Leaves Collection | Paper packs | Stamps | Stencils | Collectables & a beautiful leaf die. These are available on the online store now!
I have also stocked up on STAZON PIGMENT INK ! It is available in these beautiful colours ...
It is officially SPRING on Tuesday....REALLY?
We've had a VERY cold and rainy weekend on the brink of SPRING... but with drought in the Eastern Cape for sooooo long, we are delighted for every drop of rain that falls onto the earth in this region... I've heard that Cape Town had snow on Table Mountain this weekend & that is something for South Africa...LOL!
I am still running Scrap-It as an online-only store at the moment & possibly will for the next few months. It seems that our infection numbers are coming down, but we are not out of the woods yet. We will be save, rather than sorry and I will not open the doors for shopping ... neither will we get together in groups for classes... Let's stay safe and stay healthy.
The beautiful flowers from BLOOM has launched this week and now we have plenty blossoms to embellish our layouts and craft projects... search in the online store under BLOOM for all the pretty new flowers.
I have some beautiful kits available with the Prima Darcelle collection...perfect for a special occasion - even a matric dance... you can add glits and glam (from your stash) for evening functions. This kit included everything to complete 2 double-page layouts. Easy to follow instructions and full colour pictures included. In the kit: pretty CELEBR8 chipboard titles, Prima flowers, some die-cut flowers & die-cut swirls. Price: R355 (excluding shipping) - pls order on WHATSAPP - 0834147840.

STAY SAFE | Elizna
This year, for most, has been a surreal experience and has turned our worlds upside down. We have to try and live with a new normal and adjust to so many changes ... and many uncertainties...
It is how we handle these changes and uncertain times that matter... be kind to yourself and others, take others in consideration by wearing a mask, wash your hands, sanitise....stay home & stay safe.
I am so grateful that I can still run my shop as an online business....and keep those who are alone and at home busy with this awesome hobby. It keeps us busy and our minds occupied....and hopefully makes the days feel shorter.
I am trying hard to keep the shop stocked with all essentials and new stock as far as possible... In the background I am also checking stock levels and updating the quantities as we go. I sometimes take stock from the shelves for classes or kits and forget to take it out of stock and there is always a few items I keep aside for clients that can also make the stock levels look wrong. Just know that I am trying my best to keep the quantities as correct as I humanly can....
If you need cardstock or silk foam or any of the other products that you know I stock, but you cannot find it on the online store, pls whatsapp me on 083 414 7840 and I will gladly assist you. Even these products will over time be added to the online store for a better shopping experience.
I really miss our classes and chats, our coffee drinking and cake eating "sessions".... but we just have to stand strong and be safe for now. It might be a few months still before we can get together and see one another again. But we will get through this and then enjoy our time together even more....
...LOL! I have all good intentions to be a better blogger this year... I only got as far as February last year.... so let's try again....
In less than two week's time, on Saturday 1 February, we are having the third SANSD | South African National Scrapbook Day. As I am main coordinator for PE and surrounding areas, this is keeping me very busy right now. I have just received my box with goodies from National Sponsors and am very excited and looking forward to having all our scrappers, crafters and card makers in one spot. There is always so much excitement & laughter on this day....truly a day for sharing and caring. Two pop-up shops this year, I-Scrap | Jenny Spicer and myself, Elizna from Scrap-It Design Studio. Cariena | Scrapbook Studio JBay will not be able to attend this year, but they have sent us the most gorgeous lucky draw prizes....so exciting!
After this event, classes will continue as normal, with scrapbooking classes on Thursdays and Saturdays and Scrap&Chat on Fridays.
I am looking forward to a busy and full year with lots of awesome scrapping ... and not forgetting the Bible Journaling classes that has really taken off in 2019.
If you want me to add you to my WHATSAPP BROADCAST GROUP, pls whatsapp me : Elizna | 0834147840 - and I will add you to this info group. Pls remember to save my telephone number on your contact list to receive the broadcast messages.
...it is still early days and I am keeping up with the blogging...LOL!
In February I'm winding down after the National Scrapbook Day and starting classes, filling the shop with beautiful new stock and at the moment I am running a FEEL THE LOVE up-to-40%-off SALE in the shop and online...we have to make some space for all the beautiful products and stock for 2019.
I have schedule my REPEAT-RETREAT (a repeat of last year's Knysna retreat) in PE in May....and the seats sold out within half an hour. Soooo looking forward to this weekend and know that the ladies will love the projects....
We already have lots of beautiful new stock from Kaisercraft, Celebr8 and Penelope Dee and there is sooooo much inspiration for these ranges on social media....what a joy to see so many beautiful layouts and projects with new ranges.
My single page layout, as brand ambassador for Penelope Dee, with the new INDIGO range, was recently posted on FB... such as pretty range and sooooo versatile.
This week I taught the beautiful layouts (2 x double layouts) with the Coffee Range from FABSCRAPS...a beautiful way to scrap special friendships. If you've bought this paper previously and would like to complete these layouts, book for a scrap-your-stash class soon...limited stock of these paper packs available.
Also this week (Friday) we will have our very first BIBLE JOURNALING class by the very talented Dalene Olivier, who will share her passion for bible journaling with us.... We hope that this will be the first of many classes taught by her.
I will try my hand at this and am looking forward to this inspirational class.... we will post some pics on FB to share our creations...
May you have a happy scrapping February!
...it is just a fact now...i am a terrible blogger...(blush)...no matter how hard I try, I just cannot keep up with all the different ways of communicating...e-mail, whatsapp, Facebook, name it.... and to keep that up with the amount of admin a scrapbooking shops generates, as well as preparing classes and packing kits... this is a new year with new goals and new beginnings....so I will try again....
JANUARY is already a very busy month, especially as I am coordinator for the National Scrapbooking Day for PE and surrounding areas. On Saturday, 26 January, we will have 87 ladies together at the Fairview Racecourse where we will just enjoy our day scrapping and chatting. Cariena from Scrapbook Studio in Jeffreys Bay will do a demo and Zea-dine from BROTHER will also join us to do demonstrations on the Brother Scan n Cut. Scrap-It Design Studio (Elizna), I-Scrap (Jenny) and Scrapbook Studio (Cariena) will all have pop-up shops at the event for some well-deserved retail therapy. We are looking forward to a lovely day of scrapping!
I will soon have a February class schedule available. Pls check on the shop FB page for regular updates.
I think that a lot of mums cannot believe that we have survived January and that we are well on our way into the first term... May this be a blessed year for all of you...xx
