Shop Update & Classes

Hi everyone, Rachael here for todays blog update.

Things have been busy here at Scraploot with lots of classes happening, organisation of the up and coming special events, new product arriving and preparations for SIA. So here is a quick run down of what is happening around here.

On Saturday, Nicole has a stunning Mothers Day Book Box class, using Graphic 45 papers. Any mum would love this box to hold a mini album (Nicole has also created a sample mini album that fits inside the box) or much loved keepsakes.
Tuesday and Wednesday we will be attending SIA ... but don't worry the shop will still be OPEN for when you need your therapy. =) Tuesday and Wednesday we will be open 10am - 5pm and also on Wednesday night we re-open at 6:30pm for Nicole's Life is Beautiful layout. At SIA we will be on inspiration overload as we look at all the new products from a variety of manufacturers. Leave a comment below if there is any new product lines you may have seen that you think we should look at while we are at SIA.

And don't forget, if you think we are worthy of SIA Retailer of the Year, be sure to drop an email to and tell them in 25 words or less why we are worthy of being Retailer of the Year.

On Thursday night next we have Ree Roffey joining us to start teaching, and just for you Ree has created a very cutesy girl layout using the Paper Doll range from Crate Paper.
Next weekend things will be non stop here, with the Ali Russell all day Photography workshop, and the girls from 7Gypsies here teaching for the day, 2 inspiring projects. Contact the store for further details, but be quick as spots are filling very fast.

Basic Grey - Cappella Collection along with Max and Whiskers Collection
October Afternoon - Thrifty and Fly a Kite collections

7Gypsies & SIA 2010 Retailer of The Year

We are delighted to announce that Debbie Crouse and Paula Cheney from 7Gypsies will be here teaching not one, but two classes on Saturday 8th May. Join us for what will be a very eventful day. Across the two classes you will create a journal and an off the page House, using 7Gypsies products. This is certain to be one of the highlights of your scrapping year for 2010, and one that is not to be missed.

But if you can't make it for the Saturday class, we have also been lucky enough to have them visit us again on Wednesday 12th May for a meet and greet with the girls of 7Gypsies. After the meet and greet, Nicole will have an inspiring layout using the new 7Gypsies Avignon collection.

SIA 2010Retailer of The Year
SIA 2010 is on in a few weeks. This is the retailer event where we get to see all the new goodies that we haven't already seen and buy up big. This year the voting for retailer of the year is slightly different. This year, you need to email your vote to - the award this year will be based on comments rather than voting numbers. The sponsor for this years Retailer of the Year Award have asked for comments in 25 words or less as to why the store you nominate is worthy of the award. If you feel that we deserve your vote, then we would be delighted to have your support.

See you in store,

The Loot Team
