Cricuts, Cuttlebugs & Christmas Wish Lists...

It's that time of year once again, and we all have those little wish lists whizzing around inside our heads... The only problem is HOW to get our loved ones to catch the hint...
We have some awesome specials running at the moment! Buy a Cuttlebug for R850 and receive EIGHT FREE EMBOSSING FOLDERS!!! 
With each purchase of a Cricut Expression 2, for only R3500, you will receive a paper pack to the value of R100!!!
Also, do not forget the gorgeous Everything Mary totes, which are selling like hot cakes! R499 for the rolling tote and R225 for the desktop!!!

Should you have any other items on your wish list, give us a call or send us an email and we will make note of it. Then, send your family members in and we will help them with their purchases :D
Also, for those who do not know- you can view and order stock online at The Wholesaler - simply add the desired items to your cart, click 'view cart' and follow the prompts to finalise your order, selecting i-scrap as the store of choice.
While you are on The Wholesaler's website, why not enter their competition??? As you can see, Jenny was one of their first winners- next time, it could be you!!!

Have a wonderful day, and we hope to hear from you (and your wish lists!) soon!

Gorgeous Mini Book Tutorial

We recently discovered this beautiful blog, full of wonderful inspiration and awesome tutorials, so we thought we'd share!
Her name is Cheri Piles, and you can visit her blog here. Take a browse through her work- Cheri designs for the Teresa Collins Design Team and has created some beautiful mini albums and layouts. You will definitely be itching to dig out your old papers and get scrapping!
Today we'd like to share her mini album using the newest Teresa Collins Now & Then collection. She gives a two part tutorial, showing you how to create not only the pages within the mini album, but also the album cover itself, featuring a brilliant binding technique. We hope you enjoy!
Part one can be found here.

And part two, here!

Good news and Bad news...

Hi everyone - from a VERY windy PE!

Today we have some good and some bad news to share with you...

First the good news...
We already have 19 ladies booked to attend our next scrapbooking retreat on the 26th and 27th of May!!  What is even more remarkable, is that more than half of these ladies did not atttend our function last year.  They simply heard about how much everyone enjoyed it last year, and decided that they could not miss out on this!

Now for the bad news...
We only have 21 spots left, so...
If you have not yet booked your place, do so NOW, before you miss out on this AWESOME event!!

Here are the details again, just in case you missed it the first time around...

Bookings can be made by phoning the shop at 041 - 363 6666,
or by dropping us a line at i-scrap@vodamail.co.za.

Happy Scrapping!

New on the shelves...

Hi Scrappers!

Just a quick post to let you know about some special products we unpacked yesterday...

We now have some stunning Celebr8 chipboard alphabet sets in store.  These come in a variety of different fonts, and at only R35 for a 12"x12" sheet full of chipboard letters, these are definately a must-have in your stash!

New products from Fabscraps include rolls of foam tape (R20 each), pearls and rhinestones in the most STUNNING colours (R12 per packet), and DIY rosette flowers in the beautiful new Classic range...

We have received two new ranges from John&Jane - one in fun, bright colours featuring Summer phrases, sand castles, sea shells, ice creams, flip-flops, etc. for scrapping all those fun holiday and beach pics!

The other is a beautiful "Love" range, keeping in spirit with the "Month of Love".  The phrases in this range have been designed to fit on a 15x15cm card, for all you avid cardmakers out there (we also stock blank 15x15 cards, including the matching envelopes).

Come in and supplement that stash! We are currently running a patterned paper special - choose any 10 designs from our specials basket for the never-to-be-repeated, low-low price of only R35!

That's it for now!

Happy Scrapping!

We have both the Base System, as well as a variety of Border Designs, in stock.  Here are a few examples of the beautiful designs available in this range...

We are back...

at LAST!! (I hear you say!)  Our sincere apologies for going MIA on you the last little while.  We hope you had an AWESOME summer holiday and very blessed festive season.  We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your valued support during 2011, and for allowing us to share in all your memories and special moments.

We are ready for another bumper year, and are brimming with ideas for exciting projects and events.  2012 will see us hosting two (yes, you read correctly, TWO!) scrapbooking weekends.  After the phenomenal success of our birthday function in August last year, we were inundated with requests to host these events more often, and we are only too happy to oblige ;-)

The arrangements for the first event is underway, the teachers have been lined up and the venue booked.  All we are willing to reveal at this stage is that it will be held on Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th of May 2012...  (and as the saying goes, "more details to follow soon"...!)

We have received the most beautiful page kits from Basic Grey, with step-by-step instructions and all you need to complete a double page layout, PLUS two single page layouts!

There are 3 different kits to choose from, but they are all so stunning, we're sure you will want all three!

Also a new addition to our shelves is the gorgeous Flourish Paper from Bo Bunny, which we stock in a variety of colours...

IT'S THE MONTH OF LOVE... (well, almost!)
... and in keeping with the theme, we have the most beautiful wedding layouts on display in the shop.  Elizna has also designed a gorgeous new kit for us, using the stunning "Enchanted" paper range by Bo Bunny...

As always, Elizna's kits are flying off the shelves, so come and grab yours before they are all gone!

We will be receiving new die-cut items from John&Jane this week, so be sure to pop in and have a look at the new designs.

Jez's beautiful "Twinkle twinkle little star" kit is back by popular demand.  We finally managed to secure more of the Baby Steps range by Simple Stories, so for those of you that missed out on this gorgeous kit, now is your chance to grab it..

We will be receiving another shipment of new products towards the end of the week, including a brand-new line of tools that we are very excited about, so pop in and come say hello - we would love to see the beautiful projects you created during the holidays!

Happy scrapping and stay cool!
