Hello Creative People, and Welcome to the Scrapville Newsletter. It's a little daunting at this point to realize that we are almost half way through the year already! Hasn't it just flown by without our noticing?.....
Scrapville has been very busy indeed, the least of all being the excellent layout and card designs being put up by the Creative Team. They are working hard on their beautiful projects to keep you all inspired, and get your motivation moving. I am very grateful for their input.

May has pretty much been "Mother's Month" here at Scrapville. The lead up to Mother's Day with the Special KidsVille class was a lot of fun, and the kids were all great. Some very proud little people left the class that day, excited about sharing their creations with their Mums on Mother's Day.

There are some great in-store specials on until the end of May. If you are looking at updating or adventuring into accessorizing your creative space with some new toys, we have what you need here at Scrapville! Call in and see what's available whilst the prices are down - our new cutting and embossing machines and accessorized tools are always better when you get them for a bargain!

I find that where ever you look, you will find someone that has been touched in some way by cancer.
It's simply more than that five degrees of separation, it's that thing that sits and niggles away at the who, what, why and when inside us. The pain and suffering so many endure, the loss - albeit physical, emotional or financial, it's burdens are great. The strength to overcome these times, to support, to give hope and have faith often comes from the people working hardest to prevent it from taking any more lives. These are the people that are behind the Cancer Council and their diverse teams raising funds for this great cause, funds that go towards care, prevention, medication and research.

We are onboard.................

Scrapville will be holding a Biggest Morning Tea this Thursday, 27th May between 10.30am and 2.00pm. There will be a $5 donation for admission to the back room, where you will enjoy some yummy cakes and slices with your coffee and tea. Wear something PINK and you will be put in the draw for a spot prize.
All entry fees will be donated to the Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser.
20% of all sales on the day will also be donated to the Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser.

If you have paid your $5 donation, please feel welcome to come back for a FREE CROP at 7pm. The night is PINK, so wear something PINK, or work on something PINK. If you can only come for the evening CROP, the $5 CROP FEE will also be donated. Please contact Janet if you would like to attend so that numbers can be confirmed.

Just a reminder that the next Victorian school holidays commence at the end of June, and we will once again be running classes and crops for the kids. There will be more details closer to this date.

Pack up your Cricut Machine and bring it on into Scrapville for a fully hands on class on all you need to know about using and getting the most out of your Cricut. We will go over all the basics, the settings, using Cricut accessories and walk you through understanding your own machine with confidence. Being hands on with your own machine will see you leave knowing you can go home and start using your Cricut in more ways than you imagined.

WHAT TIME: 7pm to 9pm
HOW MUCH: $15.00

The dates for Scrapville’s very first Retreat have been confirmed for Thursday 16th September to Sunday 19th September.
After much consideration of a suitable location for the venue of choice, Scrapville has decided to hold it’s debut event at The All Seasons Albury Lake Hume Resort (or simply the Hume Resort).
There will be a 3 Night/4 Day Option, and a 2 Night/3 Day Option.
Options include meals and accommodation.
An information sheet inclusive of prices is available to anyone wishing to make enquiries for attendance.
For those who have already paid their deposits, a Registration Form and General Information will be emailed directly to you.
Registration will not be accepted without payment of a $50.00 deposit.
Numbers will be capped, and Registrations accepted on a first paid basis. We currently have 29 on the list, so please ensure you register as we approach our cutoff.
Scrapville will be taking the shop.
There will be an exciting itinerary of daily highlights, and you can be involved in as little or as much as you choose!

We will be adding new stock onto the shelves as it arrives and has cleared the inputting system.
Stock expected to arrive/come out soon is:
Martha Stewart Punches
D Ring 12x12 Albums
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Folders
More Birthday Chip Words (50th, 70th, 80th…)
Pearls and Bling
Walnut Inks
Glimmer Mist
Distress Inks
Flower Soft – Fine
Off The Page: Advent Calendars & Storage Drawers
All this and I have not even mentioned the papers! This is an area that is constantly being updated, so you will need to pop in and have a look….

How wonderful was that October Afternoon “Cherry Hill” range? As we sold out of the Monthly Packs (in the first 3 days..) the suppliers have been inundated with re-orders, and so now we are on the back order system. I will let everyone know as soon as they arrive back in stock!

JUNE’s Monthly Pack will once again feature TWO packs. Due out next Tuesday, the first will feature a range by My Little Shoebox, and the sample created by Melinda. This is priced at $15.00, and includes an optional Booster Pack for $10.00.  The Booster is only available with the purchase of the Monthly Pack!

The second will feature a beautiful range by Crate Paper, and the sample will be created by Marg. This is a wonderful and pretty pack, and priced at $20.00.

Those who have subscribed to the Monthly Packs will receive them as a priority; all the other packs will go onto display in the shop. This is a much easier way to ensure that you always receive your Monthly Packs.

Well I hope you are all finding time to scrap and be creative. I’m sure I will have more updates for you all soon, so keep tuned!!
