Drop in on Saturday, 27th November between 10.00am and 4.00pm, make a purchase and you'll go into the Lucky Prize draw, grab a raffle ticket for your chance to win the Scrapping Tote, sit in on a Make and Take demo, grab a bargain on the Mark Down Table, check the isles for spot discounts, chat with the Creative Team girls, and meet our newest Creative Team Member.  There will be lots going on, and we would love to see you there, so come on, "Vote 1 Scrapville" for Birthday Bargains!!!  .................. I have boxes to fill.................

Hello Everyone, and welcome to the November Newsletter.

We are now at the 8 week mark until Christmas..... WOW!  Hard to believe where the months have gone.  I am sure you are all finding your days filling up a lot quicker and your weekends disappearing just as quickly with the annual onset of festive events.  Getting those cards made, your gifts ticked off your lists and making holiday plans I'm sure is high on all our lists........ and only 24 hours in the day....

Scrapville has been just as busy organizing plans for our upcoming BIRTHDAY SALE on the 27th of November!!  That's right, one whole year trading in Wodonga.  Opening the shop front was a big decision for me, let alone the daunting task of starting from scratch.  Building up a Customer List, a Creative Team, filling CropVille Nights, Blind CropVille Nights,Sketch Competitions, Classes, KidVille Holiday Classes, Monthly Packs, Monthly Newsletters, Monthly Subscriptions, maintaining the in store gallery and Blog site, and last but not least the successful running of my very FIRST 4 day RetreatVille - well it has been an interesting journey of enormous growth and enjoyment!  But, I have made it through, and on a much lighter note had it not been for the community recognizing and supporting me in the need for a specialized scrapbooking and card making shop front, and without the support and strength of my dear friends, I may well have considered otherwise!

To start off November we have a new Monthly Pack with Christmas in mind.  The good thing about this pack though, is that it is very versatile and could be used for anything really!  The exciting bit of news is that I have chosen the "Christmas Time" range by the newly established lily bee designs.  A sneak peek will be uploaded for you  in the space below.  You will be able to pick up your Monthly Pack on Wednesday when the store re-opens, so be sure to call in and grab one.

We will only be running with the one pack this month, but keep tuned for December!!..............

The November Monthly Pack

And the Optional Booster...

I have decided to introduce a New Monthly Subscription, and this will be introduced with the November Packs.  All Subscriptions will be for a 6 month period, and come with the option to purchase in advance either the regular Monthly Pack, optional Booster or Monthly Extra Pack.  You may choose to pick up your packs or have them posted to you (for the appropriate area charges) on the 25th of each month prior to the Subscription Month (excluding November).  Those that Subscribe to the Monthly Pack will be offered a free gift when recommending a Friend who Subscribes.  All subscribers will need to complete the New Subscription Registration Form, and can email Janet for your copy.

Only Subscriptions paid in full will be held at Scrapville.  I appreciate that you will understand all the prior preparation, and fully paid subscriptions make this task easier.  There are no exceptions.  A strictly limited quantity will always be made available in store, above any Subscription quantities.  Given the quality of projects produced by the Creative Team using the Scrapville Monthly Packs, you can be assured that the quality and standard of these will continue to be upheld.

Creative Team News...
We have been enjoying the flexibility of new talent in our Creative Team Guest lists, with some wonderful and inspiring layouts along the way.  I would like to thank Heather Bensley for doing such a marvellous job on the team, and because of this the team and I have decided that we are going to keep her on for a little longer!  And to that end, Heather has thankfully agreed!  The Guest role will continue at Scrapville, and I will keep you all informed as to who will be next and when.............. you never know!

Paper Christmas Wreath Class
I would like to say that the classes held over the weekend saw some very focused ladies putting together some very beautiful Christmas Wreaths using the very popular Echo Park Christmas Papers.  The colours were wonderful, and I can't wait to see the finished products (once the RSI wears off!)....cutting, folding, cutting, folding, cutting!  I am very impressed with the individual choices of mixing up the petals, and the wonderfully relaxed manner of the tutor, who made the task so easy to follow!  A big thanks to Sally, and also to Melinda for her design of the Wreath.

Those that were unable to attend their nominated class and want to book into the next one can check into the Class List, then email Janet to make arrangements for bookings and deposits.  Bookings will not be accepted without a $20.00 deposit.

October Blind CropVilleI would like to Congratulate Nicole Carty, who recieved a creepy prize pack for her Halloween themed layout"Grrr...", which her boys will Love!!  Nicole's spooky layout was chosen by Melinda for being the closest to the Master layout.

New Stock
Those that have been waiting on the Black or the White Shadow Boxes for their layouts can now find them in store.
The much anticipated arrival of Christmas Papers has now arrived, along with Christmas ribbon, and several varieties of seasonal brads.
There are several new Fiskars Punches in store, including circle and scallop punches.  There will be more Fiskars Border Punches arriving next week, and I am also anticipating the arrival of Martha Stewart punch re-stocks of the Monarch Butterfly, Monarch Butterfly Border, Daisy Fan and others late next week or shortly thereafter.
New Prima adhesive Pearl Swirls with flower embellishments in pinks and greys.  These add a very nice touch to Shabby, Vintage and Heritage layouts.
Glimmer Mist, several colours including Fully Purple and Dazzling Diamonds.
New Lil Daisies from Sandie's Hand Made Daisies in an assortment of wonderful colours.  These are much smaller than the original, and all packages are based on matching up with the colours of a variety of well know paper ranges.
New Buttons on display in sample bags at the front counter, where you can easily choose which ones you like.
Green Tara - Arriving Soon!  If you can't find these in the shop shortly, just look for a brown box with two legs sticking out!! - that'll be me........... Oh boy, wait until you see what's coming......
