This week's club kit



My nerves are frazzled after going almost to the wire waiting for the materials for this week's club kit. There was a huge mix-up at the wholesaler with my account manager being away on holiday and then the order missing the courier - I had just about lost hope of ever getting this kit together but one of the boxes I was waiting for arrived this morning!

I absolutely love this page, it uses the DCWV Once Upon a Time papers and chipboard and I found the design on the DCWV website and knew it would be a something everyone would like to make. We've had these papers as stacks and they flew out - I had to re-order them twice which is unheard of! I was never really drawn to them because I thought I wasn't a glittery girl but it appears that I've found my inner glitter bug and have changed my mind!

The kit is the usual great value for money - the RRP of the chipboard is more than the kit price so it has to be! If you are joining us tomorrow evening, your kit will contain cardstock, 2 patterned papers, a whole pack of chipboard, flowers and brads. You just need to bring some 3D foam pads and your basic tools.

I'm off to pack the kits now - and to start praying that the rest of the order arrives today like I was promised!

Take care, Karen :o)

New from Canada!



Mum & Dad flew back Saturday morning from a fortnight's holiday in Canada and very kindly brought a big box of new stuff I had ordered through my Canadian wholesaler back with them! Dave grabbed the box and brought it to the Scrapaholic Roadshow where we had the shop on Saturday so that the girls could get first dibs. There is some left (but not much I have to be honest!) and if you are attending my club this Wednesday you'll get to have second dibs!

I have some new stamps from Art Warehouse - the interactive circles. These are not as 'lovey-dovey' as the other set we had arrive not so long ago and are sure to go quickly. There are also some gorgeous rub-ons from Daisy Ds, Bo Bunny and Art Warehouse!

Some of the paper for one of the October crop classes was in the order - but not everything and so I can't yet release the class. I should have another one ready to go very soon, perhaps the end of this week, the beginning of next so you shouldn't have long to wait. I had a chat with a few girls who missed out on the last class release because it was during their working day and so I have promised to be fair to them with an evening release for the next ones - it was a good point and something I hadn't thought about if I'm honest. So I renew my promise to be a bit more considerate!

The class project for my club has been held up and I'm still waiting for the materials to arrive - aaaaagggggghhhhhh!!! It will be here tomorrow and I can let you know that it will be using 'Once Upon a Time' papers from DCVW. I think seeing Shrek 3 at the weekend has made me come over all 'fairytale' - brace yourselves for the after-effects of the Transformers movie!!! LOL!!!

Wow!!!



Holy heck!! I put the third class for our crop in October onto the site on Monday afternoon and it sold out in an hour!! I'm absolutely stunned that these classes are so very popular. I really try to put together something that I'd like to do myself and I know that the competition is stiff out there so its a reall boost to see the classes fly out as it lets me know I'm getting something right.

I've had quite few emails from people attending the crop who didn't get the chance to even see the class kit before it sold out and so for all of you - I have added the kit pic above, not to tease you but to give you an idea of what sort of things might be in the other two scrapbook page kits. I'm thinking of doing an Anna Griffin class and I'm rather partial to Autumn Leaves - so I might be drawn down to one or both of these but I haven't decided yet. Rest assured that there will be a good mix styles, colours and designs - I know not everyone wants albums full of florals!!

Otherwise, life is pretty much the same although I am nursing a horrible ear infection that for the moment has made me deaf in my left ear and in a bit of pain - crikey, if it isn't one thing, its another! Be gentle with me at club tonight girls!! Karen :o)
