December Newsletter

Hello Everyone, and welcome to the final Newsletter for 2012. December seems to have arrived in no time, and now we have Christmas on our doorstep! I hope your preparations are coming along, and that all your wonderful handmade cards are ready to be sent off to someone special.

Scrapville is entering into a 4th year Next Month. I have some new and exciting plans for 2013, and I hope you will be a part of our continued growth of creativity and crafting passions. Helping you find the inspiration you desire to create those special projects is also very rewarding for us at Scrapville, so I thank you for your support, and hope to see you again soon.

The December Monthly Pack is available today. This month we are running with the beautiful Rondelle range from Prima, along with lots of gorgeous embellies.   Here are some of the papers in the Pack.
 Also in the Pack are a variety of these Silentium paper flowers.
The total abundence of this Pack includes: 2 x Cardstock, 6 x Doublesided Patterned Paper, 2 x Mini Alpha Sticker sheets, coordinating Paper Flowers and Wooden Shape, adhesive Bling shapes, a length of Black Trim, a metre of White/Cream ribbon, mixed buttons, journalling tags and a decorative lace embellishment.  So much goodness to play with!  This Pack is limited in-store whilst stock is available.  Once gone, they're gone!
The December Monthly Pack Winner will win the January Monthly Pack, so it’s a nice way to start the next month’s challenges knowing you’ve won yours!  Pop on over to the Blog, or call into the shop to check it out.

Scrapville's 2013 Creative Team Call has now closed, and the store will shortly be announcing it’s new lineup. As we commence the 4th year of trading in Wodonga, we will also be sharing the inspiration and creativity of the newest members of the Team for the January to June period.


The November/December Sketch Challenge is up and running, and your challenge entries expire Pumpkin Time December 14th, so be sure to get yours in with time to wind down for Christmas. Anita has done a wonderful job designing Scrapville’s Sketches, which I hope you have at some point found the time to try.


The November BCV was a wonderful class , which was taken by Sally in-store. This technique BCV gave the girls a hands-on look at a collage style of embossing, using Utee for a thicker, brighter effect. Due to the popularity of this class, it will be re-run as a class on Thursday night, 6th December at 7pm. Those that wish to attend will need to book to ensure there are enough kits available. You can find the list still uploaded to the side-bar on the Blog.


Please note that to be eligible for the challenges we must have a minimum or four (4) entries in each.

Each challenge has criteria to meet, whether it is using the pack products, sticking to the design of the sketch, or using products that can be purchased and supported by Scrapville.

All challenges are voted for by the Creative Team.

Anyone who wins a monthly challenge cannot win the following month’s challenge (to be fair to other entries) but are encouraged to share their challenge creations.

The Monthly Pack winners will WIN the following months Monthly Pack, unless otherwise specified at the time of the release. Where there is not a Monthly Pack for that month, (such as when we have the ScrapBursts) you have the option to default to the next one, or take a Prize Pack. The Sketch Challenge Winners will win a Prize Pack.

The Announcements for the Challenge Winners will be made within 5 days of the end of the Challenge, providing numbers qualified.
