After Christmas Cheers.....

Goodness we have nearly hit the end of 2011.  Christmas is over and surely we must have lots of photos to scrap.  Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with and loading into the galley.

We say goodbye to Wendy Carter as a member of The Design Team.  Wendy has been a tremendous help to all of us over the years, but Wendy is just so busy these days and feels her input is just not enough, so this will free up her time to continue with what she loves best.  We all thank Wendy for all her help and will still see her in the gallery and on Facebook

This brings me to the next call

Scrappy Kapers are now looking for more Design Team Members:

Criteria will be:

a) Complete a project each month with products supplied and upload to gallery
b) Able to participate on forum and invite friends along to join in
c) Facebook presence on Scrappy Kapers link

Time to time you maybe asked to send your completed projects back to Scrappy Kapers for display but they will be returned.

What will you get out of this?

Sneak Peak of Prima Class 2 November 2011 in Cunderdin

Trinkets and Treasures Interactive Wall Art taught by Trisha Ladoucher.

Trisha believes that lumps and bumps are a good thing and after participating in this class featuring the stunning beautiful “Romantique” Collection from Prima, you will agree too!  Trisha is notorious for incorporating a plethora of layers, texture, dimension and detail onto each and every project that she creates.  This layout is no exception.  She loves as many luscious layers and interactive components as possible and will guide you through the steps in creating a layout that is full of surprises, perfect for housing many of your precious trinkets and treasures!  Full of flips, flaps, pockets and tags and finished off with the absolutely gorgeous embellishments Prima is known for, this is one layout you will not be tucking away in an album anytime soon.  It demands to be touched and is guaranteed to have the “WOW” factor we scrapbookers are intrigued by, so much so that you will more than likely want to frame this layout and proudly display it on the most coveted wall space in your home to enjoy each and everyday!

Cut off date for bookings of this class will be September 30th and payment must be made by this date. You may book your place by ordering online at or  visiting the shop in Cunderdin. Once you have booked an email of requirements will be sent to you

Autumn Escape in Taupo April 2011

Autumn Escape New Zealand 2011

Autumn Escape was held in Taupo New Zealand from 15 April till 17th April 2011.
Three of us girls met up in Auckland and had a few days site seeing in Auckland. I was the delegated driver. After picking up the hire car, Ford Focus and it really was a small car, not intermediate as booked. We laughed and being scrappers and shoppers, we thought we can do this!!!

Rae from Scrapmatrix in Darwin Northern Territory loves antique shops, as do I, so 1st port of call enroute to hotel was antique shops. Rae was successful in finding some goodies, Wendy Carter, not her scene, as for me, well, what I liked and was taking a good look at was this lovely old book, with beautiful writing inside dating to the 1700’s. Reminder to oneself, ’check where counters are situated in these places’, hence I was quickly told off for being behind a counter and this book ’WAS NOT FOR SALE OR TOUCHING’. For those of you that have been in this type of shop, they are always cluttered. I couldn’t see any counter at all. We left the shop in disgust.

We made our way back to our hotel, thankyou Wendy for organising this, The Crown Plaza, very nice. We just chilled out and had a few drinks before meeting another friend of Wendy’s for dinner. Lovely meal too and company was excellent.

Next day, off we treked investigating some scrapbooking shops. Not many left in New Zealand now, as we found out. One shop we went to, were so friendly. Thankyou Scottie Crafts, you made us most welcome. That evening, it was off to dinner, but near our hotel was the reverse chair bungy jump. Wendy made us do it, we were all laughing so much, but Rae was nearly hyperventilating. We loved it.

Thursday, it was time to hit the road and head to Taupo. Ok our luggage fitted just. First stop was Rotorua, Rae had never been to New Zealand, so we had to do some sightseeing along the way. Hell’s Gate it was, but how about Zorbing girls. I pulled into the area but certainly no way were Wendy and rae going to participate but we did take photos. I really needed my bathers for this adventure so I did a miss this trip but next time definitely. The scenery was exquisite enroute and a few photo stops were made. I didn’t go on the walk through Hell’s Gate, the sulphur gives me migraines, so I was happy waiting for Wendy & Rae to check the place out. From here it definitely was Taupo. The address we had, wasn’t much other than State Highway One Taupo. "It’s ok girls, I will find it" Hence now, problem solved drove straight into the Resort. ’WOW’ was heard from the three of us. We checked in and was certainly excited by this point.

After unpacking our bags, we thought it was time to meet up in the bar, where else, you may ask!!! Excitement is mounting. OMG into the bar came Nic Howard, Becky Fleck, Rachel Tucker, Lucy Vanderloos and the TA’s. I’m sorry Nic, I couldn’t resist picking you up, you are so little and we really were there to see you after all. The look on Becky’s face was priceless, what are these women doing!! Introductions all round and we sat and enjoyed a few drinks and some really lovely food. The Barman was such a good sport, and for those that know me, I just can’t help myself when i see a tall, young man and love to flirt somewhat.

Friday. The retreat starts today, so up early to have breakfast and get our tools and off we head to the conference area. Women were already lined up, totes, bags etc etc. Yes, excitement was mounting again. The door opened and all 130 women filed into the room looking for our tables. The main room was so well decorated, layouts and off the page items were displayed all over the room. It really was beautiful. It was now real business. Lessons were starting at 11am. Some women chose to attend the classes, others remained and scrapped.

Saturday. We were all up and rearing to go again, classes were beginning at 8.30am. Yes, we had a full on weekend, that was why we were there.

Sunday. The Retreat was finishing about 2pm, but there were a couple of classes in the morning so majority of women just scrapped and laughed and shopped of cause.

The three of us had decided to stay and extra night at the resort, and relax before our drive back to Auckland, and we were trying to prolong packing the car, because yes, we did find time to shop, but it was all the packs from our classes and the welcome box, we had to get in the suitcases too.

In all the weekend was fabulous and certainly will be returning next year.  I will include more photos below:
