Scrapbooking Classes at Di's Scrapbook Shop

At Di's Scrapbook Shop at The Entrance, we hold six Scrapbooking Classes per week.
Every day Monday to Friday at 10.30am
Friday Night from 7pm to midnight
We don't have a set length of time per class, you stay until you finish.
We want every customer to leave with a beautiful page that is completely finished & that you can be proud of.

These are just  a small sample of  some of the class layouts you can choose from. We offer you the choice to choose what layout you want to do, when you want to do it. We have what we call "Your Choice" classes. We might have six people doing six different layouts, that is the beauty of being a small shop, we can offer you that sort of freedom.
We don't stick to a timetable, we used to, but we found that our customers wanted to have the freedom to choose what they want to do.

Class Costs
$12 Class Fee plus Products for Day Classes
$15 plus products for evening Classes

We have many different themed layouts on display throughout our shop, including such themes as,
 Girl,  Boy, Baby, Teenage, Adult, Wedding, Vintage, School themes & many many more.
I actually counted how many we have on display recently & to my surprise, we actually have eighty eight layouts on display at any given time in our shop  & they are constantly being changed & updated.

 We are very technique focused in our classes & because we don't set a time limit we have the time to spend with you to teach you so many great techniques. If you look at any of our pages I think you would agree that there is a lot to learn here.

Perhaps you are just in need of a little inspiration. Come in & browse about & get some ideas. With soooo many pages on display you are sure to pick up a little inspiration along the way.

Well thats all for today. I hope to see you in class!!
Until next time.
Cheers Di  xo

    More NEW stock as well as some top ups arrived today from Kaiser. Here is one of their NEW ranges called "The Lake House Collection" which also includes a "Collection Pack" with so many gorgeous bits & pieces. . So pretty & feminine & very girly.

    Another NEW one for the boys this time. This one is called "Attitude". Great grungy, with some woodgrain backgrounds & a camo one as well. Also there is a great "Collection Pack" to go with it.

    This is one of Kaisers older ranges that we re order from time to time. This range is called "Timeless". This is one of those all rounders, it includes maps, music, script, clocks, newsprint & the one at the front I just love, it has old fashion little girls dressmaking  patterns on it. Soo sweet.  A really great range for backgrounds or layering.

    Next up we got some great travel papers from both Kaiser & some other brands too. This Kaiser range also includes a great "Collections Pack" jam packed full of great little embellishments to match.

    We also received  some more of these great "Heidi Swapp" Travel Embellishments. We have had these before & they are always very popular.

    Next up we received some cute little wood "Travel" embellishments also from Kaiser, just to complete the whole "travel" theme. Lets face it, we all have so many holiday snaps to scrap!!!

    While on the subject of wood embellishments, we topped up our range of wood pieces as well. These look great on a layout just left raw. You can't get much simpler than that.

    Lastly we received  a top up of some NEW stamps from Prima, Hero Arts, Inkadinkadoo & the big one in the middle is a Pink Paislee. It is one of my most used stamps & people are always asking for it. This particular one  has been unavailable here in Australia for some time but I managed to source some from overseas.
    Well that is about all for today. Stay tuned. Until next time.

    Stock Update

     More stock arrived yesterday & today. We received another order in from  2 Crafty chipboard, both top up stock & some yummy NEW release pieces too. Soooo nice!!!

    We also received yet another top up order of the fabulous NEW "Memory Box" dies. These are just devine. Finer & much more delicate than anything else on the market, but the best thing about these is the price. These are so well priced. Much cheaper than most other brands. Scroll down & see my card for this months card classes & you will see where I have used some of them.

     These are another NEW Doiley Die Cut we have just received stock of. Again, very fine & soooo pretty. These look great on both cards & scrapbook pages alike. I actually use them on lots of my scrapbooking, very girly & feminine & great to layer with.

    We also received a top up order of the Martha Stewart Paper Cutters. I think I said before that these are without a doubt the best paper trimmer I have ever used. Real solid & well made & we know that "Martha" does a quality product.
    We also got some NEW paper ranges, top ups of Glimmermist as well as loads more top ups too  To many to photograph them all.

    (Ring first to check & just knock on the door)
