Hello Everyone,
Our next workshop day is to be held on the 9th of July. We have 3 fantastic classes for you and of course our shop will be nicely stocked with goodies for you. Including Kaisercrafts new ranges; Blae & Ivy and Little Toot.

In July we have have lowered the price of the class fee. The cost is now $20 for a full day of scrapping plus kits. This fee includes lunch!
So for $65 you can do 3 classes and have lunch!

Don't forget that we open from 9:30am and you are more than welcome to come along settle in, grab a cuppa, shop and scrap till your class starts. You are also more than welcome to stay after your class and scrap away.
We will break for lunch during the layout class.

We would also like to remind you about our Retreat in August. Places are filling fast, so if you are interested in coming along, please ensure that you let us know and pay your deposit before the August Class.

Scrap with Friends will be located at 52 Banks St East Maitland, this is the St Peter's Anglican Church Parish Hall. There is a link to a map at the end of this newsletter.

Please have a read through our classes on offer in July and let us know which class or classes you would like to do before June 1st. RSVP by reply email or

Happy Scrapping,
Scrap with Friends

Technique - 9:30am to 11:30am

This is the first class featuring our new designer and Scrap with Friend, Deb.
This amazing card uses the very attractive double twisted easel card fold. Don't be concerned by the long name. The fold is easy once you learn it. Making the card beautiful is the fun part. You will be distressing, inking and using string beads. The papers are from Melissa Frances' beautiful new range attic treasures.

What you will need for this class: Distressing tool, Brushed Corduroy Distress ink, tacky glue, sponge or inking tool and your tool kit.

Kit cost is $10 + Class fee.

Layout Class - 11:30am to 2:30pm.

Another month and another awesome inspiring layout, this month by Deb!
This month you will receive enough product to create a fantastic layout where you will learn how to create a mini album. This mini album is perfect for special pictures or personal journaling you would rather people not see. You will get to make a gorgeous twisted ribbon rose and more string beads to help accentuate the flourishes on the beautiful Timeless range by Teressa Collins. Distressing is also heavily featured on this layout.

What you will need for this class: Distressing tool, Brushed Corduroy Distress ink, sponge or inking tool, paper piercer, tacky glue and your tool kit.

Kit cost is $20 + Class fee

Cricut Club - 2:30pm to 4:30pm

Having a cartridge is fantastic, but sometimes a cartridge can do a lot more than you may first think. In this class we will explore Plantin Schoolbook. Creating a layout using elements from the cartridge.

For this class you will need: paper trimmer, mounting foam and your normal scrapping tools and most importantly your Cricut, mat and power cord.
Kit cost is $15 + Class fee.

Changes at Scrap with Friends.

Hello Everyone,

Firstly thank you so much to all the ladies who came to our June class to scrap, learn and shop. It was a fantastic day and it was lovely to see so many ladies doing what we all love to do. We can not wait to see you all again on the 9th of July for another fantastic day.

We do have a few changes that have happened with Scrap with Friends.

Jennifer has decided to leave Scrap with Friends due to personal reasons. We wish Jennifer all the best in the future.
As sad as we are to see Jennifer leave, Scrap with Friends will and must go on.
As our workshop days are a little too busy for two people, Rose and myself warmly welcome Deb (you may have met Deb at our June class) to the Scrap with Friends team.
Deb is wonderfully talented and she will be helping design and teach classes.

This brings me to the change in our classes. There really isn't any. We are running the three classes. The new class we were introducing will be incorporated into the Cuttlebug class. Cuttlebug will now be known as a Technique Class and you will not need to have your own Cuttlebug or big shot to participate in the class. Of course it is helpful to have your own machine, but it is now no longer essential. We will be doing a Double Twisted Easel card in our July class. This is the same fold of card that Jennifer was going to teach you. But of course the adornments will be different. I have seen a sneak peak of the card and it is just as beautiful as Jennifer's.

Due to the feedback we received at the June class we are reducing the class fee.
It shall be a flat rate of $20 for the day plus your class kits.
This $20 will now include lunch (however if you have special dietary requirements we ask that you bring your own lunch along).  We will be jiggling the class times to allow for a break for lunch.
Next Monday we will be sending out our next newsletter which will include class details for July.

Please mark the 9th of July on your calendar as it is going to be fantastic,

Until then happy scrapping everyone,

Rose, Deb and Kristy.
