Crops & Calls

NEW CALL: Queensland Scrapbooking Retreats

Have you ever wanted to just get away with a group of like-minded crafters on a weekend to spend a whole weekend scrapbooking? Come along and join us on one of our weekends away, scrapping and working on your papercraft and off the page projects at great venues with delicious food, comfortable and affordable accommodation and lots of laughs from fellow crafters. All venues are in the South East Queensland area.

The next Retreat is scheduled for 26-28 November and we are offering 2 day packages commencing on Friday afternoon at 5pm through to Sunday afternoon at 2pm.
Our guest artist for this Retreat is Angella Peardon who will be teaching one of her amazing layouts on Saturday morning. Angella has been published in Scrapbook Creations and Scrapbooking Memories magazines and is a member of several design teams. Angella’s class & kit are included in the cost of the weekend.

A workshop and product demonstrations are conducted over the weekend, learning new techniques and gaining heaps of ideas and inspiration. There will be Challenges with great prizes to be earned by the winners; lucky door prizes, raffles and a few surprises. A shop is available to purchase your basic supplies. Pamper packages also available should you want to take a break from scrapping...and why wouldn’t you...we all love to be pampered!
You won’t be disappointed attending one of our Retreats; lots of great food (no cooking), comfy accommodation, no dishes/cooking/kids/hubby, and hours of scrapping time to complete lots of projects, with a few laughs thrown in.

You can check our website for further information and Retreat dates. We would be happy to answer your queries via email, or phone Ann on 0413 21 6096 for further assistance.
Go on….you know you want to!!
