August Newsletter.

Hello Creative People,As we hit the start of our 8th month of the 2010 year, we are proud to release another exciting Monthly Pack, an Extra Monthly Pack, and a couple of extra surprises! Using the Mamma Razzi range from BoBunny as our standard Monthly Pack, it has been kitted up in a blend of blues, browns and a touch of green toned in with black. To add to the Booster we have added rubons, cutouts, tulle and a nice die cut bracket shape. Second to this is the Extra, which consists of the Wishful Thinking range from Fancy Pants. Featuring soft pastel colours with a touch of red & brown, this pack is softened up with some very nice accessories. It will be worth your while to go and check out the samples put up by the Creative Team girls to see just how much you can do with these packs.

JULY MONTHLY PACK GIFT VOUCHERA Scrapville Gift Voucher was put up last month for a layout submitted using either of the July Monthly Packs, which were the Websters Paper pack and Sassafras Lass pack. A technique or criteria was secretely chosen, and this was used as the guideline for picking out the layout that best fit what I was looking for. As a result I have felt compelled to split the prize, so Congratulations go to the winners, who will be contacted via email.Once you have completed your projects using the Monthly Packs, bring them into Scrapville to put up on the Gallery Wall, or email an image to me to upload to the Blog. I hope you will enjoy using these packs and create something wonderful. I will be offering a $20.00 SCRAPVILLE VOUCHER to one person who completes a layout from either of the August Packs. The winner will be chosen based on a technique or style I pick to focus on. I look forward to seeing your creativity grow as a result of being challenged with all these wonderful packs. The Creative Team girls put in a lot of time and effort to come up with beautiful samples using the monthly products. We hope these samples of the Monthly Packs inspire you to create something beautiful of your own to enter. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with for August. I hope you are in the running.......Good Luck!

Prize WinnersAny prize winner of a Monthly Competition can continue to enter their projects into each competition, but their name will automatically be withdrawn from winning the following month.

Blind CropVille
The last Blind CropVille was such a fun night for everyone, and the results have been just wonderful. The layouts on display in the front window of Scrapville are gathering lots of attention, and the girls all loved using the crimper to add that extra depth and texture. If you are yet to try out a Blind CropVille, you will have plenty to look forward to!

August is already fully booked, and so is September. There is currently ONE place available for October. A deposit is necessary when making your booking, for this or any CropVille, to ensure that all places are firmly filled. The deposit is non-refundable, as I have waiting lists and it is disappointing if places are booked and not filled when others are available to attend.

CropVille bookings for August 14th and 20th is open for bookings. Again, a deposit is essential or your place will not be held. You are able to use the workshop area, the shop is open and supper is provided.
A great motivator to get the mojo happening, and an enjoyable night mixing with like minded creative people.

There are also other brands of punches that I have on show.

The other punches currently on order should be here late next week at the earliest! If you've paid your deposit and your name is on the waiting list you will be first in....

I have been able to secure several more machines in-store, and would like to run a Cricut Expression Runout Special, offering them to you for a sweet $590.00.

The Expression comes with three cartridges, Pink Journey, Accent Essentials and Plantin Schoolbook. All very useful cartridges, and you also get a standard 12x12 mat to get you started. The machine is a very nice Pink and Champagne colour, a fantastic product for all your cutting, writing and crafting needs.

I will be doing a separate post for the Class List, and it will go up shortly.

SCRAPVILLE RETREATThank you to everyone who has shown interest in attending the RetreatVille in September. I am now at the point where I need to call on final Registration Forms and Deposits for Confirmation. I can fit 2 or 3 more in at this point, but NO MORE than that......

Preparation is a very time consuming task, and I will require you all to return your info to me on time so that I can move onto the next step. Once all deposits are paid I can get into the more detailed organization and then send out further information to those attending. We have some exciting plans for RetreatVille, and I hope you are all looking forward to it as much as I am.

......... did the little people think I forgot them? Well, I couldn't possibly.
We ran Tuesday and Thursday classes over the school holidays, and the little people created some very nice projects in their classes. I hope they all enjoyed their time at Scrapville as much as I enjoyed having them, and that they were happy with their creations!

We will be running classes in the September School Holidays, but due to the fact that this runs directly after RetreatVille, I will need all bookings confirmed by the 13th September so that my class kits can be prepared and ready to go in the aftermath of mayhem!

KidsVille September School Holdiays: Tuesday 21st & 28th, Thursday 23rd & 30th September.
KidsVille September School Holidays: (NSW 2nd week) Tuesday 5th & Thursday 7th October.

I've also had interest from some boys wanting to participate in classes, so please be sure to let me know as soon as you book them in so that I can prepare their kits specifically. I am happy to run a "Boys Only" class if I have 4+ boys. Times will be put up on the class list.

Keep your eyes peeled though, we will be running a Kids CropVille shortly, and all those little power scrappers out there can scrap to their hearts content! ............ more soon.

Creative Team Guest
The next Scrapville Creative Team Guest will be announced soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Enjoy your inspirational journey, and happy creating!
