Mr B and me on our recent holiday

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the first News from the Scrap Room for 2013! I'm back and refreshed after an amazing holidays travelling the roads with my family.  I took over 2000 photos, so I've got a bit of scrapping to do!!

Great New Products

The Cinch is here! Just this weekend we had a great new mini-release, including the Cinch!  The Cinch makes book binding quick, easy and affordable!  You can punch perfectly round holes, customise hole spacing and punch any length of book.  The Conch is great for making mini-albums, recipe books, school projects and more! I’ll be ordering mine this week – let me know if you would like one too!  Only $169.95.

The new release also included new papers – for the Fellas!  If you’d like to see the new Fellas range, see later in this newsletter for a new product demonstration.

The Carpe Diem Range

Steampunk Fun - the Embrace Possibilities Mini Album Kit
If you are a fan of the Steampunk trend, then you will love the new Carpe Diem range, released in January!  Think cogs, corsets, maps and clocks!  Lots of fun with lots of versatility to use in scrapping and cards for everyone.  

What a Star!  (what a fabulous layout!)

Join the KCC!

The Kaszazz Creative Club is an email club managed by Kaszazz.  Each time new products are released Kaszazz emails all the members of the KCC with an exclusive preview.  They also love to send out presents – including a $50 voucher as a Christmas present!  If you’d like to join the KCC, simply go to the website
and sign up today.

I’ll be working my way through my contacts, signing everyone who receives this newsletter up, so you can take advantage of the goodies!  If you would prefer not to join up, just let me know, or decline the invitation email when it comes through.

If you are already a member, and would like to introduce a new member, (and earn yourselves a voucher EACH!) then just bring your friend along to our next Kaszazz event together.

I'm not the most frequent Blogger but I'm trying...

Our new catalogue has been released and it is amazing!  All the gorgeous products have been arranged in collections - helping you find your way through all the beautifulness!!

I'm very proud to have three of my workshops in the catalogue - and my husband is proud he is famous!

With the catalogue came lots of new products, including the very pretty Botanicals range - think vintage birdcages, butterflies, roses and hydrangeas.

We also launched an amazing range of embellishments, including masking tapes in 12 designs - a great way to add an extra detail very quickly.

Not forgetting the huge range of metal embellishments - very steampunk!

You can see the full catalogue online at but better yet, call me today to find out how you can get your free copy!

You'll notice down the left hand side I've updated the schedule - I'll now be offering regular scrapping and card making nights so you can lock those dates into your diary.
Hope you see you soon!

Only one more sleep...

I can't believe it is that time already...CRAFT FAIR!!!! Tomorrow I get the very exciting priviledge of joining all the exhibitors in the big set up. I love the energy of the hall filled with forklifts and boxes overflowing with beautiful craft goodies!!!

As usual we will be bringing you all the wonderful goodies from Kaszazz at our very own stand. I'm excited about the display - a bit different than usual but hopefully really gorgeous - I can't wait to hear what you think!

As well we'll be demonstrating all day every day on the stand - lots of techniques and fun ideas to watch, plus you can have a close up look at some of our brand new products - fabulous new albums, the Baby Milestones Collection and more.

As a special treat, at 1.30pm on each day of the show a different consultant will be demonstrating how to take your papercraft "from drab to fab" - we think there will be something for everyone at this demonstration, so we hope you can come!

Once craft fair is over it is time to celebrate, so I'll be hosting a post-Craft Fair demonstration on Saturday 19th August at 3pm. We'll have some bubbles and nibbles, and everyone will have a chance to make a gorgeous card using some of our newest products. Everyone will go in the draw for a lucky door prize, and if you bring someone I haven't met before - you'll get two tickets!

I've also got some great new workshops coming up - check the calendar on the side and book in today.

See you at the Fair...

so much fabulousness...

I'm not sure fabulousness is really a word but my life is so filled with it right now I don't care what it is called! Firstly I spent a week in the beautiful Barossa Valley with my gorgeous husband - we had a great time visiting wineries, eating cheese and generally hanging out together. It was a really special trip, and it was made possible by my fabulous Kaszazz business - what could be better than that!

And the other fabulousness?! I'm absolutely loving the new product release from Kaszazz - with a 1950s theme, stamps and papers to match, it is, well Fabulous!!

And more? I'm so thrilled to welcome two more ladies to our fabulous Divas this month - we're now up to 40 Divas, how exciting!

To celebrate I'm hosting lots of great events in the next couple of months - check out the calendar on the side of the page. Hope to see your fabulous self soon!
