Trina McClune is teaching in Nelson!

Yes that's right Trina will be teaching here in Nelson on

Saturday 12th May 2012.

Put that date in your diary and book in now for two fabulous classes.

Layout Class - $45 - Starts 10am

Smash Album Class - $60 - Starts 1.30pm

I'm sure both these classes will fill quickly, so if you are wanting to book in now or wanting any information on them email fiona@scrapboxnz.com and I'll pass you onto the people in the know.

With the classes starting at 10am and you live out of town, it may give you the opportunity of flying in early and have a great day in Nelson and flying home again in the evening - no need for extra expense of accommodation.

Here's a link to Trina's Blog - here you will see her amazing talent and see why you wouldn't want to miss this opportunity with one of NZ leading Tutor's!

Card Challenge Entries

Who said they didn't do cards!

Look at what's been created, these are great and just as the challenge was set to create a "Birthday Card" using Aqua, Cream & Brown for the colours.

Thanks to you above that took up the challenge - now for deciding who will receive the $10.00 voucher from Scrap Box NZ. I'll be back in a couple of days with the winner. Good Luck to you all and thanks again for being a part of this challenge.


Just a reminder

that you have until midnight on Wednesday 28th March to complete your "birthday card" challenge. Colours to use are Aqua, Brown & Cream. Check back on the blog entries if you are unsure what to do.

You still have time to whip up a card and be in to win a $10.00 voucher for Scrap Box NZ.



Scrap Box NZ Challenges

Last year I ran fortnightly layout and OTP (Off the Page) challenges, but I found that some people were commenting that they were finding it difficult to get such a big project finished in two weeks, with other life commitments getting in the way of scrap booking! Not fair when housework, gardening, meals and work take priority to scrap booking and craft - LOL. Anyway I thought of making the Layout challenge run monthly on the first Monday of the month and introduce a Card Making Challenge that will run fortnightly on a Wednesday closest to the 15th of the month.

So welcome to Scrap Box NZ first card challenge! Over the years I'm sure everyone has created a "Birthday Card"! This is your challenge this fortnight but you need to use the colours - Aqua, Brown and Cream. I've chosen those colours as they can be adapted to either male or female. So create a birthday card using those colours for any aged birthday. It's all about having fun and the best card will win a $10.00 voucher to be spent in store at Scrap Box NZ. Email your finished cards to fiona@scrapboxnz.com no later than midnight Wednesday 28th March 2012.

Good luck and have fun!



Using the Silhouette Cameo I made this owl pillow box for one of Ollie's wee friends. Have a great weekend.  Sally.
