Janaury Challenge @ Scrap The Boys!

Welcome to 2012!!!!!!!!

This month we have a great challenge for you and two fantastic sponsors!!!

Dont forget that our DT Call is on, ideally I am looking for 4-6 members to join the team so please remember to get your applications in by January 31st!!!

Here are our January Sponsors...

SCRAP THERAPY...

We have closed our other business to focus wholly on Scraptherapy, opening a Paper Craft Bricks and Mortar store in Babinda, FNQ to run in conjunction with the online site. During the last 2+ years we have learnt a whole load of stuff about e-commerce, scrapbooking, cardmaking and the people who love these hobbies.

At www.scrapthearpy.com.au you will find a fantastic gallery filled with inspiring ideas, a great community of ladies and an odd guy or two in our online forum. Our Design Team backed up by our Big Sisters offer regular competitions and challenges to help you find your mojo, and a chance to win a shopping voucher or two. Then of course there is the shop where we hope you will find all the latest Linkand greatest products at great prices. If you can’t find what you are looking for feel free to contact me at lee-anne@scraptherapy.com.au and check to see if we can get it in for you. We often can.

Our freight charges for orders up to $25 is $9.00, orders between $25 to $100 stay at $6 and orders over $100 are now free.

I love scrapbooking and Danny can whip up a pretty good card, but our true passion is excelling in great customer service, which we hope to continue to do for years to come.

Scrap Therapy have donated a $25.00 voucher.


SCRAPBOOK DIVAS...
Scrapbook Divas started in December 2005, is located in Newcastle and offers great products 24/7.

We have a very inspirational gallery, forum and design team. Scrapbook Divas also conducts monthly Divas Days Out where you can come and shop and scrap to your hearts content.

Just a little note from me...

A little note from me..

I just want to let you know one of the reasons things have been delayed this month, apart from having laptop issues at the start of the month, this little bundle of joy arrived on the 20th December, so I am sure you can understand why things are running a little late.
We are on target for January's post to be live on the 1st and just remember you have until the 7th January to link your December layouts.

Firstly our sponsors for December...

CHARMS CREATIONS...
A bit about Charms Creations....

I started creating my
Lovely Lollipops just for my own scrapbooking pages in about February/March of this year. I saw that Scrapbooking Top 50 had a Craft Market that gives the opportunity to sell your own handmade embellishments, so thought I would make a few packets up and see how it goes! It went really well, so I thought I would make a few more packs up and try my hand selling them on my own personal blog too - my first sale was in April. That went really well too! I've had a sale a month, plus have been a regular at the Craft Market at SBT50 too. I've also set up a Facebook Shop where I have them available as well. I have LOTS of giveaways so to keep updated on those & upcoming sales - make sure you LIKE my Charms Creations Facebook Page & check out my blog Charms Creations!

Each and every embellishment that I
have created has been handcut {making them ALL totally unique} and can include a mixture of felt, fabric, lace, hessian, doiley & any other interesting piece of material I can find. They are finished off with a button and cross-stitches that are also as unique to the embellishment! I have started making different styles and sizes of Lovely Lollipops, Luscious Lollipops & Page Runners. Something NEW are my Suns and Clouds too! I have also dabbled in a bit of clay stamping too. So, if you are looking for something totally unique and one of a kind please pop on over and check them out!

I am soooo excited about sponsoring this
month - and look forward to seeing what you all create! Have fun & Good Luck on winning the fab prizes up for grabs - including mine of course... heheh!

Love Charmane

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES...

Hey Everyone

Just a quick message for all the readers of Kraft It Up, White With 1 and Scrap The Boys...

I am having some major computer issues at the moment and my laptop is off to see someone who can hopefully work out what is wrong with it and fix it tomorrow...

I am therefore, depending on how long it takes to get fixed, could be out of action for a while, hopefully not too long but it may mean that there will not be the monthly challenge posted on the 1st and if you are waiting for emails from me there may be a delay there as well..

I am using my daughters computer at the moment however it doesnt have all of my images from the CT on it which will cause a delay until I get mine back...

Please bear with me, fingers crossed I am back up and going very very soon, that is until this baby decideds to come which will hopefully be after I get the computer back LOL!

Thanks for your understanding...

Scrap The Boys November Challenge.

November is here and I am sure like the rest of the year going to fly by...

Last month was another month full of AMAZING entries, thanks to everyone who participated!


This month we have two NEW sponsors for SCRAP THE BOYS, Greatest View & Joyful Scraps, please make sure that you head over and check them out without their generosity we wouldnt be able to
have such a wonderful blog!

GREATEST VIEW...

At etsy shop Greatest View, you’ll find an always-changing selection of unique and handmade embellishments for scrapbooking and paper crafts.

It comes from creator Gail Lindner’s personal need – too much patterned paper and not enough versatile embellishments to go with it!

“I love scrapbooking and paper crafting and am always on the lookout for interesting and different embellishments, not the mass produced kind! I scrap by colour so that’s my main inspiration for the shop. I start with a fun, inspiring colour scheme and then get creating!”

Be sure to visit the shop Greatest View and Gail’s blog for updates on new products and plenty of inspiration!

Greatest View is offering a $20.00 voucher.


JOYFUL SCRAPS...

JOYFUL SCRAPS...
My name is LeAnne Payne and I am the owner, operator and creative force behind Joyful Scraps. Joyful Scraps has been in business for four years and is going from strength to strength. Our retail online store is open 24 hours a day so you can shop in your pj's if you want to - wink.

Joyful Scraps has fantastic range of classes and weekend away retreats to keep our customers creatively energized.

Joyful Scraps has a huge range of products for all levels of scrap booker. Joyful Scraps has a monthly embellishment pack to help your creative mojo along.

Our motto is "make your dollar go further with Joyful Scraps". And our focus is on customer service. Every customer is important to us.

I have been a scrap booker officially for about 7 years now. Before I ever heard of scrapbooking I was putting together journals and 'this is your life' inspired family tributes. And as a young girl I had a love for stationery, when I found scrapbooking I felt like all the planets had aligned :)

My style is influenced by what I have to play with, owning Joyful Scraps gives me an opportunity to source fantastic products that I know scrap bookers will love.

Recently we have updated our logo to include this delightful Tortoise. The reason for doing this is that just like the children's fable of the Hare and the tortoise, Scrap booking is not a race, it is a journey, so be a tortoise!

A happy day for me is when my family is happily occupied so that I can create!

Joyful Scraps is offering a $20.00 Voucher

STB OCTOBER CHALLENGE...

This month at Scrap The Boys we have another fabulous challenge for you, lots of stunning inspiration from the Creative Team and 2 fabulous sponsors, Scrapbooking From Scratch and Scrapware, please remember to support our sponsors as they so generously support us!!!!

SCRAPBOOKING FROM SCRATCH...


My name is Peta. I am married to Jason and we have 4 children, Zac, Meah, Caleb & Sienna.

I have been scrapbooking since 2003. My interest started after being invited to a Creative Memories workshop at a friends place. I still use my CM products, and recommend highly their range of tools.

But my true scrapping addiction started once I found the huge range of products available when attending a local lady's workshops in 2005. Unfortunately she decided to stop teaching and my girlfriend said I should start up teaching, even if we just do it as a get together... well that now seems like so many years ago. I am holding classes every week and I have also held 3 home based retreats as well.

My friends & customers love the fact that they can come to my classes and receive a pack of product and instruction to complete their pages, not too much thought on their behalf, so hence where "scrapbookingfromscratch" has come from.

My goal is to bring my home classes to your home in a conveniently packaged purchase for you to complete these gorgeous pages too.

Check out Scrapbooking From Scratch now...

Scrapbooking From Scratch are donating a $20.00 voucher.


SCRAPWARE...


Scrapware is an Australian owned and operated wholesale business, located in Croydon, Victoria.

Created by Ange Connolly following her passion for scrapbooking, card making and “all things creative”, Scrapware designs and laser cuts embellishments and beyond the page projects. After spending some time teaching Scrapbooking classes, Ange identified the need for good quality, innovative and fresh embellishments for scrapbooking/card making and off the page projects to complement products already on the market.

From this, Scrapware was born!

Always striving to create new and innovative products to add to their existing broad range, Scrapware releases new products regularly. Trends and ideas are constantly changing and evolving, and with this in mind, Scrapware is also constantly evolving and along with her design team, spends many hours designing new products.

For inspiration, you can visit us at www.scrapware-oz.blogspot.com and also come see us on Facebook - Scrapware Australia.

Scrapware has donated a $20.00 prize pack.
