A new banner for the blog - Thanks Jackie!

I was reading Jackie's blog the other day and noticed that she had a gorgeous new banner which she designed herself. Well, no sooner had I admired it than she sent me this fabulous one for my site. Thanks sooo much Jackie, I love it!!

Had a great crowd at last night's class in Whitehall. We did a layout using the new Basic Grey Infuse Collection. It was themed "Things I...." and everyone chose the rest of their own title. I meant to take some pictures but although I brought my camera the three hours flew by so fast everyone was leaving the building before I took it out of its bag!! Everyone was chatting and scrapping away and enjoyed my Mam's tea, coffee and home baking at breaktime. Thanks to everyone who came along and made it such a great success. Don't worry I'll get the photos at the next one on August 11th. If you fancy coming along email me at to book a place.

We're off to Cavan in the morning for our Scrapbooking Retreat in the Silver Bear Centre in Bawnboy and I'm really looking forward to it. It should be a mega relaxing day and I'm hoping to get some projects finished in between classes. Also looking forward to catching up with Amber Jane who I haven't seen since Crafteire and a little "bird" told me that someone from Limerick might be dropping in too!

Workshops & Scrapbooking Retreats

We thought we'd let you know about our upcoming Workshops & Retreats here at TheScrapbookStore.

As you know, we hold monthly Workshops in Whitehall Parish Centre, The Thatch Road, Whitehall, Dublin 9. Our next two workshops are on Thursday 25th July 2007 and Thursday 23rd August 2007 from 7pm to 10pm. A class kit, tea/coffee and home baking is included in the price of €25.00. If you fancy coming along just drop us an email at and we'll reserve you a place.

"WE'RE GOING ON TOUR" !!!! To celebrate the Summer (not!!) we're holding two Scrapbooking Retreats in the Cavan countryside. If you're feeling a bit stressed and fancy a bit of ME time why not treat yourself to a full day of scrapping in the lovely Silver Bear Centre in Bawnboy (about 20 minutes from Cavan Town on the Ballyconnell side). These all day retreats (10am to 5pm) take place on Saturday 28th July 2007 and Saturday 25th August 2007.

We took a trip up to check out the Centre and it's fantastic. It's bright and airy and set in the middle of beautiful secluded gardens. The scrapping room opens out onto a huge deck area so if we get some good weather it'll be really relaxing and there's some great gardens to walk around too.

The full day package including three classes and tea/coffee all day is just €45.00. If you don't want to do any of the classes but would love the full day to "Crop 'til you drop" then the cost of a crafting space and tea/coffee all day is €15.00.

If you fancy joining in either of the days just email us at and we can give you full details.

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned scrapper we'd love to meet you at any of our classes.

Take care
