Welcome to.....................

WOW girls what a whirlwind of an adventure, you all made this a very hard decision, so hard in fact that Sue and Craig left it up to Sheree and Myself to make it!!! And it wasn’t an easy one at all, Sheree and I chatted about it for a long time, sure we had our favourites, and believe me this changed from round to round, BUT what we really needed to do was sit down and come to a decision for our **NEW DT GIRLS**.

So we sat down and discussed it heavily, going from challenge to challenge, entry to entry, and all of those that completed the requirements, (and well done to all of you because I don’t remember coming across an entry that didn’t) We were after entries that applied the requirements in a unique way and had stand out pages, something that really stood out to us in the overall comp. Of course we changed our minds time and time again, but in the end our decision came down to 2 lucky ladies, SO without further ado the new members joining the Scraploot Design Team are…………….

Kylie &


Congratulations Girls!!

We are all looking forward to working with you, and I am sure everyone is looking forward to your inspiration!

Sue has informed me that you were both over the moon, Congratulations once again, very well deserved!

NOW for some more good news, its not over yet….we are now working on selecting three of you wonderful ladies to be Guest DTs…so stay tuned….we will be in touch early next week…

OOO its exciting isnt it!!

Double up sale and New stock

Hey everyone... loving all the DT challenge entries that are coming through this week... its going to be a tough job in deciding i think...

Just one point though its great to see so many people uploading other pages to the gallery also but can we please limit them to say 3-5 a day... that way everyone gets a chance to see everyones great creations... thank you...

ok now onto the sale


So it’s June and the end of the financial year is looming close. We are serious - we seriously do not want to count this stock. So we have a super deal for you from Monday 2nd June 2008 until Friday 27th June 2008 all DOUBLE UP product marked X2 will be TRIPLED UP! That’s right X3 - you will receive another product from the same range or designer, so thats 3 for the price of 1. Where we have sold out, and we can't triple up with the same range or a product from the same designer, we will replace the 3rd with coordinating card stock.
A lot more product has been added to our Double Up and Sale Section – Cherry Arte, Daisy Ds, Junkitz, Mustard Moon, My Minds Eye, Making Memories, Rouge De Guarance, Rusty Pickle, Scrapwork, SEI, Sweetwater, Urbay Lily and more, so make sure you grab a cuppa and check all the categories out for some huge bargains! We have added specials for clearance stock to the same section, so you will be a while trawling through everything. Over the coming week, we will be adding other product at super duper sale prices so that we don’t have to count that as well!
No further discounts will apply to double up and sale product. Redemption Vouchers do not apply to double up product. All orders for double up and sale product must be paid for within 5 days of ordering otherwise product will be returned to the shelves, so other customers do not miss out.

Design Team Challenge #4

So how are we finding all of the challenges? I have to admit I am loving seeing the
Gallery so full of GORGEOUS pieces of work! so well done to you all!!

On to this weeks challenge. This week I want to see a multiphoto layout, I want to see

~ at least 3 photos of various sizes
~ a punched shape of any size/shape
~ rubons
~ and I want to see you make use of patterns in some patterned paper

here is my sample


Here I have used 5 photos in 3 different sizes, I have used my circle punches (3 different sizes), some Basic Grey and Scenic Route rubons and made use of the Basic Grey Arctic line, cutting out the Dinosours and Wavey lines from the papers.

SO, dust off those punches (remember you can use 1 or 100 different punched shapes) print off those multi photos (hmmm thinking Parties, Holidays, Christmas, Easter...........) get out those rubons (can be as old as the hills, so long as you use rubons on your layout somewhere) and cut out those patterns (oooo LOVE those Flowers, Flourishes, Dinosours, Robots, Birds..........) and get scrapping.

Now Nitty Gritty stuff.

The Layout must be up in the Gallery by Sunday 11.59pm 8th of June EST
Please only one entry per person
And follow these guidelines for the challenge, we want to see your creativity, but within these set guidelines.


Oh and if there are any questions, please just leave a comment and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
