Scraploot turns 1 in style with High Tea!

Wow! What a weekend it was.......
Saturday's Delish class fully booked out and those who came left with a stunning mini album. A big thank you to Sally and Sue from Delish for the inspiration throughout the class and also with the cute make and takes in the gazebo.
Larraine Bate also joined us on Saturday to demonstrate the amazing Cricut machine... thanks for inspiring us to think beyond the page and get even more use from our machines.

Sue and Craig were up late Friday night and up early again on Saturday morning cooking and preparing our lovely yummies for High Tea..... and Yummy it was!

Sheree on Saturday gave customers a sneak peak into her 12 Tags of Christmas Classes with a make and take in the afternoon, which was just beautiful.

Across the weekend our customers took advantage of some great spot specials and picked up some fabulous bargains. We also had a few treasure hunts and lucky door prizes. . . . The treasure hunt was lots of fun as people zipped around the store trying to find the treasure.

Also over the weekend we continued to support our favourite charity, The Jane McGrath Foundation, and raised $107 through a raffle. Congratulations to Nola McCormack, who won a $100 gift voucher to to spend instore, which was kindly donated by Sue & Craig. Thank you Sue and Craig for your continual support of this great cause.
A big thank you to all of our wonderful customers who came in across the weekend to help us celebrate our 1st Birthday!

Scraploot's 1st birthday...

Its our 1st Birthday this weekend and we are planning a huge one to celebrate!

On Saturday 28th November, we are celebrating in style with a fantastic class launching the new range from DELISH, High Tea, and what better way to celebrate this Aussie Product Promotion day, than with HIGH TEA and be part of this fantastic class with Sally Wilson. Starting at 11am with freshly baked scones (Sue will be up early baking these from her Nana’s secret recipe) then with sandwiches and fresh fruit followed by assorted pastry sweeties (yes Sue is going to be up very early!) … We have a limited number of spots remaining, so ring to book. The class, kit and High Tea is all included for $40.

For those of you already booked into the class, please email us or pop in before to get the info sheet on the class!

We will also have make and takes using the High Tea range in the Gazebo from 10:30 to 2:00.

Lorraine Bate will be here with us also on Saturday 28th from 10am to 1pm demonstrating the Cricut machine. On Saturday all Cricut Cartridges will be reduced by 25% off.

From 2pm to 4pm Sheree will be in the Gazebo doing a make and take with you using Tim Holtz product where you will make a gorgeous Christmas Tag.

On Sunday 29th we will be open from 10 to 4pm – the scraproom is available for a pleasant Sunday of scrapping and yakking…ring us to book!

Sheree will be demonstrating the Silhouette machine on Sunday from 11am to 1pm, and then from 2pm to 4pm Sheree will be demonstrating the Cuttlebug machine using both Cuttlebug embossing folders, and Spellbinder dies.

On both Saturday and Sunday we will have hourly HOT PINK DOT specials (bit like a Red Light – but we are sure you get the idea). For the first 15 minutes at the top of each hour we will have these specials running with a great range of product each hour. So make sure you plan to be with us for a few hours on either day or why not both because the hourly specials will rotate through the day and will be different each day.

We will also have some tubs throughout the store with great bargains with product reduced up to 50% off.

Sheree and Rachael have also decided on some other specials that they are going to run over the weekend – wish we could tell you what they are, but Sue and Craig don’t know what they are, nor what time they will be happening! All we know is that these will be ORANGE DOT SPECIALS

Oh and last but by no means least…in case you can’t make it on the weekend to help us celebrate, from Wednesday 25th November until Friday 27th November at 4pm, our Scraploot Scrapper Discount will be increased to 15% when purchasing over $50 (standard exclusions apply) Please noteFor Sale Items No LaybysApplies to stock on hand onlyare not included in Scraploot Scrappers discount when purchasing over $50.

Hope to see you over the weekend for lots of fun and scrapping...
Sue, Craig and the team at Scraploot

Scraploot Retreat 2009

Well its been and gone and what a blast we all had... Starting from friday we all arrived to find lovely accommadation and a huge room to scrap in (the tables were awesome to scrap at)...
Everyone was right into scrapping from the first night and apart from myself (who got a total of 2 cards made LOL) everyone got lots of scrapping done on the weekend....
We all had a ball... lots of laughing and talking oh and the few people that made us roll on the floor laughing (we wont name names but you know who you are LOL) but it was so much fun...

We raised a total of $407.00 for the McGrath Foundation with our bingo, raffles etc so thank you to every one of you who donated in some way... there were lots of yummy goodies that were up for grabs...

On the saturday night we had dinner by the pool with a masquerade theme night... we all decorated masks for the dinner of which there were some stunning ones and also the funny ones too....

The food and accommadation were awesome. The Retreat at Wisemans Ferry was such a lovely place to stay and we were very blessed with awesome weather.
Thank you to all our lovely customers and friends that came away with us. It was a fun weekend and I am sure that once we get over this one we will get started on organising next years (well maybe in a few months time we will LOL)

See you soon at Scraploot
