March Madness

I am so excited ... so much good news to share:

From Saturday, 25th February until Saturday the 3rd of March we will be having March Madness at Scrapbook 'N Things!!!!!

Patterned Paper Special:  Fill a pizza box with any patterned paper in the store for only R475-00 (we have tried and tested and you can pack up to 100 sheets into your box).  That works out to be only R4-75 per sheet ...

Plain Paper Special:  Fill a pizza box with American Craft Plain Cardstock for R300-00 (you can pack 110 sheets into your box).  That works out to be R2-75 per sheet.  

Cuttlebug Machine:  Get the new Cuttlebug for only R550-00 (this is a R400-00 saving).  

Couture Creations:  All their embossing plates less 25% ... they work wonderfully in the Cuttlebug.  If you haven't bought them yet - you are going to fall in love with them ... 

Tote & Caddy Special:  Normally the set costs R740-00 - for this week only get it for R600-00.  What an awesome saving!  

What a way to to march into March ... hope it gets you as excited as I am ....

Thank you to all the ladies who attended our 1st Fundraising Scrap day for Brendan Bowen.   It was a huge success, however there is unfortunately still a shortfall in funds, and due to this we have decided to arrange another fun Scrapbooking Morning and hope you can all attend (or purchase kits).

You will create a double layout that has been specifically designed by Michelle van Wyk for this event.  Using KAISER craft new range of papers called HUNT & GATHER, this layout is perfect for those Bushveld, Holiday, Camping, Safari or even fishing photos.  Living in South Africa, we all have tons of photos that fall in these categories.  Our layout will include a pocket and flaps to hold up to 16 photos (or more !!) 


This layout was designed by Sharon Coetzer.  It is not specifically a valentine page.  I used photo’s of children that I work with at a baby home. This layout includes an envelope with tags and some sewing.

VENUE:                  Wilro Park Baptist Church
TIME:                       09h00-14h30
PRICE:               R270-00 (includes double layout kit, plus a single layout to create at home, class fees, lunch and teatime treat with your coffee)

Brendan Bowen was found in need of care on the 6th August 2002 at the age of 7 and placed in our foster care.  From a young age he was exposed to alcohol abuse and marital violence.   His family lived a nomadic lifestyle and he and his sister were severely neglected.   His father passed away during 2001, and his mother left him with family members, who were unable to support him.   Despite this background, Brendan is well adjusted, motivated and has adapted extremely well in the foster care situation.   Brendan is now 17 years old and is an all round achiever and has achieved extra-ordinarily on the sports field.   Northcliff High School has invited him to attend a Hockey Tour to London in April 2012 at a cost of R19 000.   We are therefore looking at fundraisers so that he can be part of this wonderful opportunity.

Thank you for supporting this very worthy fundraiser.



If you cannot attend and would like the two kits @ only R230-00
please contact Sharon directly to arrange
