Louise's pages

One of our clients, Louise Gerber, is busy building a house. Between making sure the correct bricks are delivered, kids are dropped off and picked up at school, the business is running smoothly, preserving her memories got left behind. She asked us to do some double and single pages for her. Her only requirement with these professional photos - it had to be purple. Quite a challenge for me - I have only ever scrapped in purple once. It was so much fun!! I had to deviate from my usual style and asked her to bring one of her albums so I could see what she liked. I am pleased to announce that she is very satisfied! Remember that we will scrap your pages for you if you don't have time or if you like the hobby, but just don't want to Scrap yourself. It is all about preserving your memories for yourself and your loved ones!

Elmarie's cards and March Specials

One of our clients, Elmarie Coetzee, certainly has a flair for taking any ordinary piece of whiteboard, chipboard and paper, and turning it into a masterpiece. Here are two of the stunning cards she created. She used her Chalks and Stickles to enhance the chipboard. Just look at the detail. Every corner has been punched and her placement of the elements are perfect. Remember that our end of the month specials are running until 2 April - get 30% off your purchase of regular priced flowers, stickles, double sided tape, all chalk mini inkpads, ( we have all the colours Versamagic and Brilliance Dewdrops) and all cuttlebug folders. Cuttlebugs are still selling for R650-00 including a free folder of your choice! Enjoy the rest of the week!

Card Competition!

We are having a cardmaking competition at the shop! We gave each contestant a sheet of patterned paper and a sheet of cardstock and told them to use their imaginations, and create a card. They could add any element to the card, but they had to use the papers provided at least in some form. Now we need your help. The prize is a R200-00 voucher for the shop, and we need a winner! Please choose your favourite 3 by voting in the poll in the sidebar. Please leave a comment after voting, as all comments on the blog will also be entered into a random lucky draw, and will win 3 clear stamps by Kaisercraft! Unfortunately the prize is only open to South African participants, but our overseas viewers' comments will be greatly appreciated! And here are the cards - in random order!

You are my HOME kit...

We have been asked to design kits for some customers, and together with the SWEETNESS kit from Pink Paislee we designed, comes the "You are my HOME" kit. The kit consists of several American Crafts Abode double sided papers ( enough to make at least another single page layout as well) , all embellishments, a whole jar of Sunshine Yellow UTEE, a whole Kaisercraft Sticker Sheet and more!

Some details on the layout. Here you can see how stunning the UTEE looks on the chipboard letters!

Another close up - little houses cut out as embellishments and the banners and punched detail. Contact the shop on 042-2932781 or send us an email from the link in the side bar to order your kit!

The Sweetness Collection by Pink Paislee has been a real hit with Scrappers across the board! I taught this class last Saturday. It is a layout that preferably does not go into an album, but should be displayed. Nice and easy.

You can add as many layers inside as you would like to - the possibilities are endless!

All the paper and embellishments are available at Scrapbook Studio JBay. The class is also still available for those of you who missed it! Just phone 042-2932781 to book your seat!
