Welcome to the M&M Scrapbooking Adventures first official newsletter. We will be sending these out once a month and hope that you enjoy them. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, please let me know so I can remove you from the list. If you do like it, please share the love and forward to all your scrapping buddies.

As you are aware, Nutty M (Michele Eriksen) and myself Sweet M (Michelle van Wyk) started up M&M Scrapbooking Adventures in 2009 with our very first Scrapbook Weekend Retreat held at Wakkerstroom Country Inn. Since then we have hosted several retreats and day functions with great success. Due to the overwhelming response, this year we decided to host 2 Scrapbooking Retreats (details below).

A very big THANK YOU to all our loyal supporters, without you M&M Scrapbooking Adventures wouldn’t be such a great success.

Our first Scrapbook Retreat of the year is our CAMP CROP weekend, being held from 18-21 March 2011 at Stonemountain Lodge at Hartebeespoort Dam. The venue is beautiful and the conference room has a huge big window overlooking the dam. I think we might have a problem getting the girls to concentrate on pages as they will be too busy looking out the window.

All our stock has arrived from the States and Australia and the kits have been packed, sponsors for prizes have been sourced, challenges and games have been finalised, and giveaways and goodies are all ready in boxes just waiting to find some new homes.

The weekend is going to be so much fun and the theme is SCRAP SCOUTS.. the girls will be earning their “SCOUT” points throughout the weekend and will be challenged both mentally and physically (scrap wise). Lots of prizes up for grabs.

We were even able to throw in an extra layout.. so 6 projects for the weekend:

(see post below for sneak peeks)

If you were not lucky enough to attend our weekend retreat, remember that we have packed a limited amount of extra FULL kits of the weekend. So you can purchase these AFTER the weekend and can still complete these amazing projects.

R 650-00 for 3 x double and 3 x single layouts
Contact Nutty M on to book your CAMP CROP kit (limited stock so book early)


Our KIT Club was started in January this year and we have already doubled the number of kits we are packing from January to now. THANK you very much for all your support. We have had the most phenomenal feedback from everyone and are so happy to see that everyone is loving the kits. We are constantly looking around to source the latest and greatest of the new ranges out there for you to play with. This does mean, that sometimes there may be a delay in receiving the products from the States and Mitch & I scramble to produce the kits, pack them and get them to you on time.

Remember that Kits are packed and posted / delivered during the FIRST week of the new month. So, if you have ordered a MARCH kit, this is ready for collection / delivery this week, provided payment confirmation has been received by Mitch.

UNFORTUNATELY March kits are sold out already but remember that APRIL kits are now open for bookings.

NOTE: You can pre-book your kits by indicating on the order form that you want for 3/6/9 months, etc. You do not have to pay for them all upfront, you only pay on a month to month basis. This just helps to secure your kit and helps us make sure we bring in enough products first time.

We have discounts if you order more than 5 Kits:
1 – 4 kits (no discount) = R290 per kit
5 – 10 kits (approx. 10% discount) = R260 per kit
11+ kits (approx. 15% discount) = R245 per kit
If you purchase more than 5 kits, you get permission to teach it with an A3 printout
