Hello Everyone, welcome to the June Newsletter.  I hope you are all enjoying grabbing a bit of sunshine whilst it lasts before the wintery weather well and truly sets in.  A great time for snuggling up with you creativity.  We have an exciting Newsletter this month with lots of bits and pieces to tell.

To warm you up we have a delightfully beautiful range from BoBunny, called Little Miss.  It has beautiful hues, subtle masking, spots, stripes and something a little picturesque.  Now you must be intrigued?  It's such a gorgeous pack, so be sure to grab one before they all go.

Monthly Sketch Challenges
The May/June Sketch Challenges are still coming in, and you still have plenty of time to get yours in before Pumpkin Time.  Anita and Janet have put together these sketches to keep you all inspired, and challenge your creativity.  Let's see what you can come up with!

June ScrapBursts
Bursting to get that Mojo moving?  Have we got the challenges for you!  Our June ScrapBursts will run throughout the month of June.  We have 4 challenges to choose from, you can do one or do them all, and tackle them in whichever order you like.  You must stick to each challenge criteria to be eligible for a prize. There must be a minimum of 4 entries in each challenge before a prize will be given.  You can use any of the following Techniques in addition to the individual criteria: inking, painting, misting, stamping, sewing and distressing. 
Winners will be announced on July 2nd.

Kits, yes that's right, Kits!  Not compulsory, but an added option for you, with a little bonus.  The Kits will include value added products to let you complete your challenge without the hassle of searching for products. If you purchase a Kit, you can only use WHAT IS IN THE KIT, plus your allowed Techniques as listed above.

IF you choose to purchase a ScrapBurst Kit for either of the 4 ScrapBurst Challenges and you WIN that ScrapBurst Challenge, you will win back a prize voucher to the value of your purchased Kit PLUS the ScrapBurst Prize!  There will only be a limited number of Kits available in each ScrapBurst Challenge.
Your layout can only include a combination of Kraft and 2 other Colours. Mix and Match to get them right, but only using these elements.  You may use your chosen techniques BUT in these colours (where applicable)!

Your layout must include a length of Bunting and a Tree.
The Bunting can be any shape or style, but you MUST use MORE than 3.
The Tree can be in the paper, a stamp, screen, chip shape or other - but you MUST have BOTH on the layout.

This layout is to be Rustic & Raw, including 3 Handmade Items.
Earthy, Rustic tones, Raw products and a mix of 3 Handmade Items on the page.  These items can be of your choosing, but must be a legitimate handmade item.

You must included this WORD in the Title, or a derivative of this word.
(ie: Eye, Blue Eyes, Big Eyesore, Eyeballing, Eye of the Storm...etc.... hope this helps!)
Your layout must also reflect the theme of the Title.

Blind CropVille
The June BCV will run on Saturday 16th June.  We are still running both classes, and can therefore offer you an early class commencing 2pm, or the evening class commencing 7pm.  The BCV's for June has been put back a week to allow for the Long Weekend. If you would like to attend please be sure to book ahead to ensure your place.  For those that have not attended a Blind CropVille before, just drop Janet a line or call in for a bit more information about the class and rules.
This Month's theme is "Outdoors/Games", and your requirements list is on the Newsletter Blog sidebar. 

The next CropVille, numbers permitting, is on Saturday, 23rd June.  7pm to 11.30pm

Next OPEN Monday
Scrapville is OPEN this Monday, 4th June.  Take advantage of the extra opportunity to pop on in and browse around.  You can also check out the next Open Monday on the Newsletter Sidebar.

RetreatVille 2012 
Retreat will be running again this year, and the dates are Thursday 20th September to Sunday 23rd September. Bookings are still being taken, and Options are 3 Nights /4 Days or 2 Nights / 3 Days.  For further inquiries please email Janet.

DoCrafts June/July
The June/July DoCrafts Magazine will be available shortly, and a notice will be put on the Blog once it has arrived.  If you don't want to miss out on the Magazine, please ensure you pay ahead as they do sell out quickly.

The Class List for the next two months will be confirmed next week.  Check out May and June, and if you are interested in attending any of these classes please be sure to book in.  Please pop on in to Scrapville to see the in-store samples of our Classes.

The Stash Box is just that - somewhere to stash your bits and pieces, your photos, your special little adornments, or anything else on the top of your workspace that needs keeping safe.  For this Off The Page project you'll need to call into the store to check out the sample to see it for yourself.

The Flower Tech classes run over the course of 4 x weekly classes, and have still proved to be very popular.  With beautifully crafted cards adorned with your own handmade flowers, each class will take you to a new technique, and some very creative flowers.   We will be running these Classes again, and will also include the option of doing the Advanced Flower Tech Classes at the completion.

For those who just completed the Flower Tech Classes, you will be able to attend the Advanced classes following the current classes.  These gorgeous new handmade flowers will take a little more work, but as part of the Advanced Classes they will be well worth it.

The Copic Club
Will commence again in July.  Each class over the duration of the 4 months includes a kit and written instructions, as well as hands on demo's.  By the time the Copic Club has finished it's course, each member will have a good supply of Copic Markers, and be able to confidently create cards or pages using all their new techniques.  Our aim is for you to feel confident in using all the specific colouring techniques, under the proper hands on instruction.

We also offer a discount on class products and tools purchased at the classes.  This is a great incentive to increase your supply of tools and products.
