SENZ 2013

It's just around the corner!  Figuratively and literally!  Next weekend at the Telstra Clear Events centre in Manukau (about 20 mins from my house!).

As always, there's lots of prep work involved in getting classes designed, tested and kitted up.  But I'm 90% of the way there (with the help of Jodi - aka Mrs Scrapaholics).

I mentioned on Facebook that Scrapaholics are renowned at SENZ for their Project Kits.  When the SENZ doors open on Friday morning, there is a mad rush for our kits!  So this year, Jodi and us tutors have worked really hard to bring you a fantastic selection of layout and card kits!  Just to tempt you, here are a couple of kit sneak peeks....

Remember, first in - first served.  The kits are limited in numbers.  They are fantastic projects to keep you going over the winter months, and particularly useful for taking to scrapbooking events since you don't have to pack everything including the kitchen sink!  They come with full colour printed instructions so there is no guess work involved.  It's a sit back and create type of thing!

Leave me a comment if you are coming to SENZ - better still, come and say hi at the Scrapaholics stand!  We're looking forward to seeing you!

Vietnam Scrapbooking Retreat - Red ChiChi

Some of you may have been lucky enough to meet the gorgeous Aussie gal Lucy Muraca at Creative Adventure in May.  Lucy sported that magnificent pink sequined apron!  You couldn't have missed her!! Lucy is the owner of Skatkatz (who also very generously donated a great prize to C.A.D) and runs fantastic scrapbook retreats around the world. 

In October this year she is hosting a tour to Vietnam.  The itinerary sounds just luxurious!  So I wanted to share the details with you, you have to go take a look....

I have personally taken a class by the accomplished Angela Peardon, who will be teaching on the tour, at the Brisbane Expo and I can promise you she is a very clever lady!  Her work is incredible.

Click on this link http://red-chichi.blogspot.co.nz/p/vietnam-retreat-2012_06.html to read the full itinerary with pricing options.  It'll be a marvellous trip, a perfect mix of crafting, sightseeing, local activities and relaxing!  Sorely tempted I tell you!!!!  I'm guessing spaces are limited - contact Lucy on info@skatkatz.com.au to find out.

So, who's up for it?

Never a Dull Moment!

Not around here, anyway!  After a week of being housebound with a sick son (and me!) it's time to get cracking with preparations for SENZ (Scrapbook Expo of NZ).  I am teaching 3 classes again this year for Scrapaholics,  all of them layouts and all quite different in their own rite.

Prima Multi Layer Faerie Folk Layout - Mixed Media Scrapbooking

Strong - A Masculine Layout featuring Authentique's 'Strong' range

I Love You - A Webster's Pages Certified Class

Looking forward to a nice, quiet weekend.  Relaxing, maybe a bit of crafting and some baking are sure to be in order.  We are enjoying some lovely sunny, but chilly, wintery June days at the moment.  As much as I bemoan winter, it is nice to cuddle up in the evenings with the family and enjoy each others company.  It's also a time when we catch up with old friends for winter dinner parties, which is always fun.
Till next time!
