Christmas Cheer for Children & Adults Alike!

Greetings, and welcome to what is commonly called the 'silly season'.
Yes, Christmas is just around the corner and we all have a busy few weeks ahead.
Can I encourage you to chill out and make time for some creative relaxation??

This month I have planned 2 workshops especially designed for children to allow them to explore the world of scrapbooking and card making.
There are two special dates for 2 special projects.
Places are strictly limited to SIX children aged GRADE 3 or above.
Children will choose FOUR cards they wish to make on the day of the cards workshop.
There are TWO sets of each of the scrapbooking layouts 1 - 3, so these can be chosen on a first in basis.
Because these are introductory workshops they will operate for an hour and 15 minutes, instead of the standard two hours. This reduced teaching time will be reflected in the cost.

Okay ................. so when, where, and how much????
THURSDAY 8TH DECEMBER ..4.15  -  5.30pm .................... card making
THURSDAY 15TH DECEMBER ..4.15  -  5.30pm ..................   scrapbooking.

COST FOR BOTH:   $25                       or attend just one  $15
RSVP  no later than Wednesday 7th December. Samples pictured below.

For the ladies, our Christmas scrapbooking layout is a $25 workshop, Thursday 8th December, 7.30 - 9.30pm.

happy crafting

Shades of blue greeting cards

Our next workshop will not be a brain-drainer ladies.
Thursday 10th November we'll be making 3 simple but attractive cards at a workshop fee of only $20. We'll be using the Ezy-Press, a number of embellishments and of course some stamping. When you have made the three tags for your messages, you are free to choose the greeting of your choice.
Starting time is our usual 7.30pm. If you'd like to  join us, advanced warning would be useful -but on this occasion not essential as I have plenty of supplies of the products we'll be using. Hope to see you!!

How many times have you said those two little words ........... either in your mind or out loud??????
This Thursday night, 13th October, at our usual 7.30 till 9.30, you'll have the opportunity to make a double-page scrapbooking layout to mount your REMEMBER WHEN photos.
You can choose your own theme ............. you may have photos of yourself as a young sports star, or baby photos of a relative soon to turn a special age ........someone's first day at school........ or wedding photos you have never put into an album.
Whatever you decide, you are going to love the techniques we use to create these pages.

Workshop cost is $30 per person.

Time Is Precious!!

This terrific layout would make the perfect front page for any album, to keep or to give away. Using various embellishments and chipboard, the workshop, which consists of the single page scrapbooking plus a matching gift card, costs $30 per person.
However, if you don't wish to purchase the whole sheets of chipboard popouts and can be flexible as to your actual title page wording, the cost can be brought back to $25.
The photo I have used is only 6 x 4, but the page has been designed to have a 5 x 7 photo mounted on it!
Workshop date: Thursday 1st September
RSVP Monday 29th August.

If you would like to do the workshop, but can't make it on the Thursday, why not host your own at a date that suits you??????? Hostess rewards are very generous.

Happy Crafting!!

All Boy!!

It's that time of month again Ladies ............... no, I'm not getting personal........... I mean it's time to let me know if there's anything you need to buy to add to this month's order.
Tuesday morning is the deadline so put those thinking caps on and contact me ASAP!!
Don't forget to look back at the previous post for this month's specials and FREEBIE offers.

August 4th is the date for our next workshop and it's back to a scrapbooking layout.
Once again, everything was prepared before I injured my ankle thankfully, so you don't have to worry about me trying to hobble around to get things ready!!
Join me Thursday 4th August 1.15 till 3.15  or 7.30 till 9.30 to complete this great double page layout.
While it's title is All Boy - there's no reason why the layout can't be used for a girl.
Each person's pack contains a set of rub-ons as well as other materials so the workshop cost is $30 per person.
If you take up my Winter offer however the cost is only $25 if you bring a friend!!


A newly released product line is our fabulous Kaszazz vouchers. Take a look below at what they look like!!
 From now until Christmas if you buy a voucher as a gift  for a friend or relative, you take home a bonus product gift with a minimum RRP $3, $5 or $8 - depending on the value of the voucher!!
That's double the value - a super gift PLUS a thankyou FREEBIE so why not add one to your next order?? 

While I am currently unable to run FREE Make and Takes, or other events in your home, I am confident I'll be up and about SOON. Therefore I am currently taking bookings for the second half of August.
On offer are some hostess deals that are SOOOOOO fabulous, I can't publish the details in fear of being swamped by booking requests - so give me a call and see what great gifts you can qualify for SIMPLY for hosting an event.
Happy Crafting.

HOLIDAYS and Beyond!!

Greetings girls.
There's nothing like sunshine and craft to lift your mood ........ and that's just what I have enjoyed for several hours today.

For those of you who are mums at home with children over the school holidays, why not get the kids to do some journaling for family photos for you? Or turn their hand to card making for those birthdays coming up in the second half year????  The hours will simply fly and you'll end up with some treasured memories.

Our next Thursday night workshop will be the first week back of term, Thursday 21st July and will be a set of jungle animal birthday cards. You can use an alternate 'Congratulations' greeting if you'd like to use them as baby cards - the choice is yours. This workshop uses coloured rub-ons, double-sided paper and embossing. The cost is $30.

With many people hesitant to come out in the cold, workshop numbers have been down, so to tempt you and your friends to attend throughout July and August, I am running a special Beat The Cold promotional!!
Bring a friend who has not attended a workshop with me before and you'll pay only $25, as well as receiving a  thankyou gift. 

So ......  put your thinking caps on and consider who you could invite. At $25 per person this workshop is suitable for Beginners and as such would make a great gift for a friend or family member.
RSVP Monday 18th July!!!

The other news is the fabulous promotions on offer this month for customers and for hostesses - check them out!!!

April Options

This Thursday 14th we'll be making these cards together; the workshop cost being $25.
It's a little hard to tell from the photos but each card has different bits and pieces added to it. The first card has been put through the Ezi-Press to emboss it, the second has been embossed using distress embossing powder, the third is a combination of stamping with embellishments and the fourth uses stamping and painting with the crayons.
On the night I will show you 3 other options for re-producing each of the cards using different colour combinations and stamping patterns. Bookings are essential, so if you'd like to join us but haven't confirmed, please email me today, Monday 11th.

Using Chipboard Embellishments

Well done to those ladies who completed the Discover scrapbooking layout.

Did you ever think you could do so much with chipboard words, letters or numbers???
For those who couldn't make it check out the Kaszazz website under two hour projects, and in the online flier have a look at workshop 2H759 Discover Flourish. This layout uses chipboard words sponged with three different coloured inks and when dry topped with Glossy Accents.
Remember though you can emboss chipboard, you can colour with ink and top with crackle paint OR you can paint the letters with Smooch.
If you have done something different, why not share it with others through the comment option?
