Newsletter #41

29th March 2009

Hello Fellow Flaunters!

It has been a very busy week here at the shop; Jodie, Lysandra and Maureen have been making plans for the future, including planning our next retreat. We hit a minor glitch... the weekend we had hoped to go away on turns out to be the AFL Grand Final weekend! How inconsiderate of the AFL to do that to us. So we are busy sorting out a new date, so stay tuned. Maureen, Little Jodi and Tara attended a trade night for Collections and naughty Maureen has ordered lots of new product from them. The make and takes from the night are on display in the shop to inspire you. Look out for some great classes coming up.

Don't take it too seriously!
Scrapbooking is about having fun and making it a memorable event. You could scrapbook with your kids, spouse, friends or family and make it a fun evening, or series of evenings. Just do crazy things with scrapbooking and don't think about stuff too much. Courtesy of

During this class you will be shown how to effectively use your trimmer, work with chipboard and create a single page layout using 2 patterned papers, brads and computer journaling. You will leave with a single page layout that you can show off with pride.
Step 3 - Map Your Page. Duration - 2 hours
On your single page layout you will work with sketches and page maps. You will also get to use the Big Shot, create pockets, journaling and eyelets.
Step 4 – An Adventure with Embellishments. Duration - 2 hours
The single page layout you create will include how to use rub ons, stamping, ribbons and transparencies!

We would appreciate if class participants could arrive 15 to 30 minutes early to ensure that classes can start on time, as there are some classes that require you to choose your materials. All class durations are an estimate only.

Junior Scrap N Yaps –Tuesdays, 3.30pm – 5.00pm. (Weekly during the school term)
The idea of the Junior Scrap N Yaps is to give the kids a chance to meet others who like to scrapbook. There will be no formal teaching of techniques but the staff in the shop will supervise the kids and offer help and suggestions. Unfortunately we are unable to have children under the age of 8 unless an adult accompanies them. All the kids need to bring is a basic tool kit** and any project that they want to work on.
Cost $5.00. Bookings are essential.

Only a Mother can share Love with all of her children, yet give each child undivided Love.
