SA Scrapbook Convention Part 1

Hello all!! I have been getting alot of request from Scrappers to showcase some of the layouts we did at this year's convention. For those of you who don't know, every year in September Glenda Viljoen organises a STUNNING Scrapbooking event featuring 6 International teachers from 6 Scrapbooking companies. We then all gather at Emperor's Palace if you like Gauteng, or Spier Wine Estate, if you like the Cape, and we Scrap for two solid days. It is quite something. For those of you who would like more info, here is the link to the website
The layout above was presented by the Glitz Girls. We stock most of their products at the shop - they sell out quite fast as the new ranges comes in, but the one we used was Vintage Muse, and although it is just over 6 months old, we do still have some of the papers and embellishments in stock if you would like to order some. Stock is moving fast, though, after the convention.

The page was a double whammy featuring loads of banners, layering and distressing! The Glitz Girls are stunning, and I promise you, you have never seen such skinny, pretty little things with so many kids!! LOL! They each have about 4, and they all look like models! To find out more about them, visit them here. We are expecting all the new ranges within the next few weeks. Their products are distributed by The Wholesaler, and you can order anything from them and have it delivered to your favourite store, or it will be sent directly to you!!

Here you can see some of the banners we did, as well as the stunning stickers and titles they have available.

Some of the layering they are famous for. They were amazed to see how much double sided tape we use, and how we glue everything DOWN. They like to only glue the middle of the photos down, so that they can insert journaling, tags, embellishments etc. More than one of the teachers commented on how much tape we use - they reckon we keep the doublesided tape industry afloat!! It was quite funny, when you think about it! We sell HUNDREDS of rolls a year, and it is a staple item in a South African Scrapper's stash. At least we know our pictures and layouts will stay put for the generations to come!! I will update the convention as time goes on!
