whatsapp image 2022 08 05 at 2.51.44 pm

Layout number 5 is my absolute favourite … “Unbelievably Blessed”. This layout holds 13 photos! Stitching with fibre and adding brads with the most beautiful butterflies just brought this awesome layout to life!

Just a reminder that you can order the full kit if you cannot attend (included in the kit is everything needed to make all the layouts) and a prize or two!

We do have a few spots available for the first weekend if you are wanting to join us. Dates are the 2nd to the 4th of September. How exciting to scrap together as Spring begins.

In-between the two Trennery’s Retreats we are staying in Kei Mouth! Thanks to Carol Forword and Di Lands for thinking out of the box! They have organised the most awesome venue to hold a full day on the 8th September. Join us at the Kei Mouth Country Club for a fabulous scrap full day! How awesome is this!

We will be using the brand new range from Cup of Tea … “Coffee Mates”! So exciting! We will definitely do a minimum of 2 double layouts and a single! Once we have the paper in our grubby paws we will see if we could stretch another single out too! So more details on how the layouts go will follow soon!

Included in the price of R750-00 is the full kit (to create all the layouts), coffee station, lunch, muffins and a surprise or two!!! If you cannot join us for the day you can order the kit at R650-00 (you will be spoilt with a prize or two too).

Nothing better than spending a day with fellow scrapbookers scrapping, eating, laughing and making wonderful memories.
