Scapbook Pages, Kits and a request.....

It has been a very busy time here at Scrapbook Studio JBay - but we always have time for Scrapbooking!  We have been unpacking from Bloemfontein, creating layouts for Dainfern, East London, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth as well as an inbetween day filled with four double pages in one day!
 This page Debbie Grey created based upon a layout we did in Bloemfontein in 2012.  The photos of her Hawaii trip, paired with the stunning Tropicana release by Kaisercraft (mostly sold out, sorry!) makes for a beautiful and striking combination!
 This is a layout Debbie created in a class we taught a few weeks ago.  She used some Fabscraps paper, and we just love the soft colours and the close ups of her daughter on either side of the top row of photos!
This layout Debbie created from a set of notes she bought at our Retreat in February.  The original layout was designed by Jowilna Nolte and we just LOVE Debbie's version!  Just look at Bella's face.........!!!
We have added several Scrapbook Kits to the online shop - all original and limited.  If you also want to create stunning pages, easy to assemble with a bit of a challenge but not taking hours and hours to complete, visit our Scrapbook Kit Section at our online shop!  You will not be disappointed!  
 This gorgeous layout was created by Hazel Grieve, based on a kit she bought at the Retreat, designed by Elizna Parsons.  It was supposed to be a Travel Page, but this looks just amazing!  Just goes to show - the possibilities are endless with Scrapbooking!
We leave you with an origina layout by Kim Schwab.  She used the stunning Prima Lyic papers to create a fun page of her friends' wedding - just random pictures of the day.  It is really a classy page, Kim!!
If you are inspired by some of these pages - please remember to give credit where credit is due, and don't claim it as your own if you are a teacher or a shop, packing kits.......It is just not right to do that!  We love sharing, but it is really sad when you hear about classes being taught based upon other scrapper's work and layouts being copied and sold as original kits (when they are not..........)  We would love to continue sharing and know that you will do the right thing!!!!

Hope you get some scrapping done this weekend, and remember to visit our Online Shop for all the latest and greatest in Scrapbooking!  Have a Blessed day!

Bloemfontein Event........Prologue

We visited Bloemfontein from 24-27 April to teach 8 classes to some eager Paper Crafters!  It was a week filled with creativity, inks, glue and friendships being formed!  We have just finished unpacking everything and we are slowly working through the over 600 photos we took, but here are just a few images of some of the fun we had!
