It's getting closer!

ANSD ~ Allcraftz National Scrapbook Day~ is almost here and the planning is full steam ahead. We have challenges, games, raffles, deals and so much more! There are also a few wonderful kits going up in store available to buy on the day, which come complete with instructions. Here are a few sneak peeks...

Kits by Hannah- she has completed 2 kits for us, one for the girls and one for the boys. Here is a little peek at the girl layout...

Marcy has put together a fantastic set of 3 ATC's for us for the big day too. So many new techniques to play with!

Marnie is putting together the Basic Gray Circle Of Friends Journal kit for us, for to record all those special moments.

Penny has kindly offered to do a class on the day for us too. This is a class not requiring a kit, and instead uses basic items we are likely to all already have at home. This is her paper technique class sneaky peek...

Ruby also planned to have a class kit available on the day however because of unforseen circumstances Ruby will instead be teaching us at a later date.

More details on the kits and classes for ANSD can be found in the Allcraftz Forum

Allcraftz Newsletter..... exciting!

Everyone loves freebies!

As most of you know in America they are celebrating National Scrapbooking. We have our own National Scrap event the June long weekend, which is our own way to celebrate Scrapbooking & Cardmaking.

America has begun celebrating now and we have decided to join in a little with them as well. For the next 5 days you will see a few things take place in the Allcraftz Forum, as a warm up to our June event.

1. We will have 3 games scheduled this weekend.
2. Mini Challenges will be announced tonight for those wishing to take part. (To complete by Sunday)
3. We will have 25 random pop/spot prizes given out between 6pm tonight and Sunday evening.
4. We will have a Prima Flower give-away hour.
5. There will be a raffle with some great prizes.
6. Some special deals in the store available for this event only.
7. We are bringing back the Allcraftz Money Back promo (as we had last year)

The money back promo will begin at 6pm tonight and will end midnight Friday night. For each order placed you will receive a voucher to use on your next purchase. For every $25.00 (excluding postage) spent you will receive a $5.00 voucher. For example:

Spend $25.00- receive a $5.00 voucher
Spend $50.00- receive a $10.00 voucher
Spend $75.00- receive a $15.00 voucher
Spend $100.00- receive a $20.00 voucher

Vouchers will be issued after your order has been paid for and finalised (it can not be used towards the purchasing of the initial order) and must be used before May 30th 2009. No other vouchers can be used in conjuction with this as our voucher module only allows one code to be entered at a time.

Winners of the games and challenges will be announced Sunday evening with prizes also listed then.

So head over and join us in the forum this-afternoon and see what lies ahead... and remember our money back promotion will begin at 6pm tonight and applies to all orders placed after that time and before midnight Friday.

Have fun!

A Rainy Day...

Well, I was the town entertainment yesterday. My FIL lost his new magnetic bracelet so my MIL and I went out the front to see if he could have dropped it on the lawn when he was loading up the car in the morning. I had one of those slow-motion feeling moments, where you can feel yourself falling but can do nothing about it. Stupid me fell off the gutter, which is all of about 10cm high, and landed full body on the road.

The worst part... I bounced! Holy moly if that is not a great way to realise you could lose a little weight HAHAHAHAHA.

Today I ache all over. I have bruises and grazes in strange places, and muscles hurt that I didn't even know existed. I was complaining to myself so much about literally having a pain in the butt that I even made a song up to myself- which I sang while packing 44 orders and promptly drove the two other people in the packing room nuts!

It's a cold and rainy day here today and I would love to curl up in my flanny pj's and read a good book. If only I could convince my little girls that they would like to do that too.

ANZAC day is tomorrow and we are off to march again to show our respect. My girls love marching beside their daddy. Maybe one day I will get around to scrapbooking the last 9 years worth of marches where Chloe was with him in each one.

Allcraftz Easter Egg Hunt

It's Easter and it's time to find those eggs! For those of you who have already received the Allcraftz Newsletter you will know exactly what this is... hidden throughout the Allcraftz store, in amongst the products you will find Easter Eggs, as pictured above. Find an egg, purchase the item the egg is hiding in, and win yourself a $5 voucher. It's that easy. Most of the items cost you less than $5 each so your better off buying them, than not buying them. Purchase 2 egg items and get a $10 voucher, 3 gets you a $15 voucher, purchase all 20 hidden egg items for a $100 voucher, etc.

These items will only show the egg while they remain in stock, so to avoid missing out you best go shopping now :)

Good Luck and happy hunting!

Allcraftz Sketch Challenges

A very dear friend is creating a special place all about sketches soon, so we decided to come up with some ways to be involved in it. Hopefully she will create a sketch challenge for us to use each month from her own special place... cryptic I know, but all will be revealed soon by the lovely lady herself.

In the meantime we have begun with our monthly sketch challenges. Each month we will give one lucky person a $20 store voucher for participating.

I've put the first sketch challenge up now... pics below...

The guidelines are simple. Use the sketch for inspiration and create your own masterpiece. Ensure you take note of the extra guideline each month and the prize could be yours providing you add your piece to the gallery by the 30th of the month.

The special guideline this month is that your creation must be about the FIRST something. (Challenge inspired by Miss Megan during our Allcraftz Birthday last year).

Allcraftz Sketch Challenges

Hannah's Flowers

Congratulations to Hannah who won the Prima flowers a while ago here on the blog. She has used her flowers to create a new Layout for us all to be inspired by using them.

Beautiful work Hannah. You can view more of Hannah's beautiful creations in the Allcraftz Gallery.

Erin is turning 4

Tomorrow my baby girl is turning 4. Goodness the time has just flown by! We had a bit of a drama in planning but all seems ok now... I was going to hire a jumping castle for her. She has never had a proper birthday party before so we decided this one would be BIG for her.

We booked the Jumping Castle and everything was all set- until Monday when they called and said sorry, we can't have it- they double-booked. It was super expensive for a kids party anyway ($330 for 3 hours!) so I was kind of relieved but then stuck for what else to do.

It was almost like someone was watching and smiling down on me... I bought one! It was cheaper than the cost to hire one, and is HUGE. It has a slide and ball pit in it too- actually it is a 10 in one with basketball hoop, dart, toss, bounce, climb, obstacles, slide, crawl pit, ball pool and tunnel.

I can't wait to see her face tomorrow when we put it up. It comes with it's own blower and is inflated in about 3 seconds when you turn it on. She has pre-school tomorrow and will be sharing cake with her little friends there. I'm hoping to have the streamers and balloons done, the jumping castle up and ready, the party food and games all good to go when she walks in the door. It's almost like Christmas HAHAHA... my Miss 9, Chloe is so excited it is ridiculous- and as you can probably see, I am too.

If anyone has any ideas for quick easy party games feel free to let me know. I have pass the parcel, musical chairs, pin-the-tail on the pony (she LOVES My Little Pony) and that was all at the moment. I thought the jumping castle could be the entertainment.

We are having a bbq dinner for the adults and with it being Easter Friday the following day people can kick back and relax. I wont be able to answer any emails tomorrow night everyone hehehe

I'll make sure we get some pics to show you all how it all went too.

Allcraftz National Scrapbooking Day

Shops in the US are getting ready to celebrate National Scrapbook Day and although a few of the Australian shops have some things happening on the same day as the one in the US, at Allcraftz we celebrate our own. On the June long weekend there will be a massive event taking place. There will be classes, kits, challenges, games, prizes, special deals and so much more for the entire weekend- including a section just for our children to participate and have some fun.

We have 3 special guest DT members who will be running some classes for us on the class day. MARNIE is going to show everyone how to put together a Basic Grey mini album, MARCY is going to show us some great techniques using mediums, textures and more on ATC's and RUBY is going to show us some of her amazing skills with Making Memories paints on a Layout. Added to that we have our talented HANNAH who will be preparing some kits and possibly some classes too.

All of the classes will include kits to purchase, and if you can't make it on the actual day you will be given access to all of the instructions, step by step pics, etc so you can do it in your own time if you prefer.

It's all so exciting and I can't wait!

An Allcraftz Update

Sorry for taking so long with the update. After having the shop closed for a bit I get caught up in the whirl wind when we re-open- and I love it!

As you probably know by now, I like having sales and specials on and this week is no different. I selected about 200 items to reduce the price on and put a heap in the "clearance" category. There is so much coming in that is new and exciting so I hope we can move out some of the older stock quickly.

Some of our favourite comps are back, like our Jackpot goody-(speaking of which I need to put up the new clue!) and we have some new exciting things happening. Hannah has taken on the role of setting some challenges for us for our mystery challenge item which is bound to be very interesting to see all of the results.

My mind works constantly thinking of things to do to help our customers get more for their money, and have some interacting fun, so I hope we can entertain and well as provide :)

Tuesday, March 31, 2009


Well, I have started counting everything finally. I had to have each order placed pulled as much as possible so that sold items, whether paid for or not, were not included in the stock count. Stacks of people included "pre-order" items with "in-stock" items so going through each and every one took a bit of time.

Now that that part is done you should be seeing some things start re-appearing in the shop soon. Fingers crossed it will all be completed by the end of the week and we can have it all listed again and updated correctly for some weekend shopping.

In the meantime, head into the Allcraftz Forum... some spot giveaways are happening randomly and you just might win a goody. Good Luck!

The Spreader Of Love Award

WOW. Thanks Sharon & Megan for awarding me this one... The Spreader of Love Award is an award I am happy to received. Thankyou!

The rules: you must post the award on your blog, name the person who awarded you, then pass the award to 6 other bloggers and leave a message on their blog that they've received the award.

I don't spend much time looking at blogs and things, but I made sure I put some time in on my choices for this one. Some obvious choices for me for those who know me, but hopefully some not so obvious too.

There is one person who deserves this award but doesn't have a blog yet...

Avie ~ I am going to see if we can convince her to get one just so she can receive this award properly. A more kind person I have yet to meet.

Now for 6 with blogs.... Here are my nominees:- I have no idea how to put actual links in my blog, sorry...

Robyn ~ Mrs D~
Robyn creates STUNNING items and definitely deserves this award after her Christmas Masterpieces I received.

Megan ~
Someone worthy of this award time and time again. She makes me laugh, smile, and feel much better every time. A true and valued friend.

Hannah ~
Definitely a candidate for the spreader of love. This lovely lady is seriously talented as a cardmaker & scrapbooker and is also extremely kind, patient, understanding and all the rest!

Marnie ~
You can ALWAYS count on Marnie to give you a giggle and make you feel good. She spreads the love in the most awsome fashion!

Marcy ~
A kind and generous lady with a super big heart. Her 1am funny's used to be the highlight of my night!!

Now this last one is HARD... it's a toss up for me between Liz (redcrystal) and Ness (vjbradford). Both are excellent motivators who easily inspire.

Liz is fantastic for me when I fall off my weight loss wagon, she inspires me to get right back on and is definitely a lady in my "I have to meet" list...Maybe one day we will :)

For Ness she inspired me to start scrapping about myself. She completed a layout for a CC sample for Allcraftz a while ago and it was 100% brilliant. With her permission I scraplifted the design and scrapped about jmyself. She reminded me to think of my little girls- what if something happened to me? Wouldn't I want to leave them some memories? She deserves the spreader of love award simply because she has helped ensure my girls remember my love after I am gone.

2009 here we come

Well, hasn't the time gone by in a hurry! Amazing that it's 2009 already AND a new CHA event is about to happen in the US. This of course means HEAPS of fantastic new release goodies coming our way- and the need to clear all of the older stuff in store.

Keep an eye on the forum, and make sure you read the newsletters, I'm hoping to have plenty of wonderful things happening to keep you all interested and having fun.

To kick it off, we have 75 Prima Crop Kits to give away. These will all be completed and available within the next few days. We are going to make them a CHALLENGE style kit for everyone, more details to come. I've listed some info on the kit, and a video demo in the forum so it might be worthwhile taking a look.

A forum prize night is also planned for one night this week. To ensure you don't miss out I suggest you check the forum often... the prizes include a huge variety of goodies. Hopefully for the next few weeks we can have a prize night once per week. All you have to do is turn up when it's on and participate- it doesn't cost you anything to join and you could win plenty of goodies for yourself.
