●●●● NEWSLETTER ●●●●
Ho – Ho - Hope you all have a super duper festive season full of family, fun and of course fantastic scrapping !
To get you in the Festive / Holiday mood, we have created 2 really cool layouts this month to inspire you PLUS 2 bonus projects for you to complete either for yourself or as give aways over the holiday season.
LAYOUT 1: CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS
Nobody loves Christmas quite like Bo Bunny and their new range called BLITZEN just shows it.. every page is designed for your enjoyment. Called CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS, we all have many of these over Christmas time, and if you don’t then maybe this year is a good time to start ! LOL…
This double page spread includes threading techniques and a super cool Maze Booklet for all your extra photos that you have lying around each Christmas.
This month you will have enough papers left over to create 2 extra projects.. YES you heard right.. 2 extra projects.. a Christmas Card and a cute Christmas hanging tree.. this is really cool to make as a gift for a loved one.. We hope you enjoy these extras as our gift to you !
As an extra as well, check out this blog for 100’s of links to free Christmas Printable items you can use on your layouts or projects: http://sassysites.blogspot.com/2010/12/free-christmas-printables.html
LAYOUT 2: FUN IN THE SUN
Our second layout is a fun holiday / beach double page spread with lots of room for your own personalisation of the page, thanks to an awesome sticker sheet that we have included in the pack.
You will create a cute mini booklet as well for all those extra photos and add a dash of corrugated board to bring in the outdoors..
NOTE: We have to apologize as we struggled to find some of the product we needed locally and have had to order it in from the States.
Depending how long it takes to arrive, the December kits may only be ready in the 1st week of December.
●●●● YOUR FEEDBACK●●●●
A very big Thank you to the ladies who took the time to comment back on our short questionnaire last month regarding our kits. We appreciate the time taken to give us your thoughts. In response to this, we will be doing the following in 2012:
From next year we will be trying to incorporate a little extra into the kits in the form of ideas, mini projects, etc so that you keep your love of Scrapping alive.
We try and source the latest and best products for you.. so if you see something new and exciting that you want us to use.. please let us know. In addition, we are all feeling the pinch on our pockets, so we really do try not to make the kits too expensive and rather teach you to make your own embellishments. We will endeavor to have at least a couple of kits next year using new and exciting embellishments to add the glitz and glamour.
We will be doing more adult and teenage themed layouts (e.g. weddings, holidays, love, friends, pets etc..). It is very difficult to please everyone, but we will try our best to cover as wide a range as possible.
Although we are M&M, there are a lot of talented designers out there and I know that some of you would love to do other “styles” of layouts, so we will be trying every now and then to get a guest designer or two to help us design layouts to give you a bit of variety. If any of you out there are dying (or even moderately keen) to design a layout for us, drop us a line and we'll make use of your talents.
●●●● 2012 Kits ●●●●
As 2011 draws to a close, we want to send a heartfelt, big thank you to all the ladies who have supported our kits and enjoyed putting them together every month. Your enthusiasm and delight really keeps us motivated and inspired. Both of us are so looking forward to 2012, and based on the feedback we have received, making your kits bigger and better. We are also delighted to tell you that there will be NO price increase for 2012, you will still get your kits, and extra's, for the same amazing price as in 2011.
So, now is as good a time as any to book your kits for next year. There are a handful of ladies who have booked into 2012, but we would like to wipe the slate clean and get updated details from you all. So we would appreciate it if you would complete the attached booking form and return to Nutty M on email@example.com We will then be able to plan for the January kits and make sure we have enough to go around.
●●●● YOUR COMPLETED LAYOUTS: ●●●●
Remember that we love to see your finished pages, so please don’t forget to either email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or Nutty M on email@example.com with your amazing creations so I can load them onto the blog and facebook (or load them yourself on our facebook page) and show everyone how very creative you are.
Also, we create kits based on feedback from you.. so if there is anything you would really like to see in our kits (a special technique, a particular theme), please let us know so that we can incorporate it into the layouts.
