Little Update

I know its been awhile since i've posted but trust me we have been really busy at work. For anyone of you who were at the launch of the new Q1 products for Kaisercraft you would have seen what we have been working on lately. The rest of you will see soon enough and can't wait to show you what we've been up to - not long now until their release.

Q1 Launch Party.

Thursday night we finally launched our new Q1 products to our retailers.

It seems so long ago we were working on this range but can't begin to tell you how much we have enjoyed working with these products. You design girls have done such an awesome job of these and you should be sooooo proud of yourselves. Al has posted an awesome report of the night and there isn't much else to add except ditto. Go on over and check it out. There are also more photos on the Kaiser blog. Huge congrats to the design team girls who organised the whole night, from all reports received so far everyone had a fantastic time. Congrats to all the store owners who won prizes on the night, especially to Liz and hubby from Artfull Crafts in New Zealand, who won the major prize(their order doubled). LOL they couldn't decided what to order so got it all. Loved meeting you guys and sooo glad you had such a lovely time over here - makes the trip allt he more worthwhile.

So can't wait to see what you all get up to and create with the products so please upload all your creations to the Kaisercraft gallery and show us.

Here are just some of the awesome staff we have at Kaisercraft. Its so easy to take your job for granted but its nights like this that make you realise how fortunate we are to have a job in a company like this and for me to be able to work with family and friends (some my very best) is so much fun . It was also great to meet a couple of our new DT girls Christine and Nikki. You girls are great and so glad you came down to visit.Scrapbook Expo
On another note last weekend Al Woods and I had the privilege of going up to the Scrapbook Expo in Brisbane to represent Kaisercraft. Kaisercraft had their very own classroom this year and a small stand giving a small sneak peak of the upcoming Q1 releases. Along with Lu Benson we took three workshops each day and had an absolute blast meeting heaps of you lovely people. I still can't believe my workshops sold out well before the weekend and many of you were ladies were ones who attended my class last year. Thanks for your ongoing support. Thanks also to Printblocks as I won a new Cricut cartridge (not yet released in Oz and a Jukebox), its always great to catch up with you guys. Still can't believe how busy it was up there - if you are a scrapbook junkie and want a good weekend, start saving now and head on up next June - its lots of fun and there are great workshops to attend and lots of goodies to spend your money on.

For those of you who couldn't get up there I took the ladies through making the following little clear album using the Airy Fairy Papers. Gorgeous for any little girl and although not very difficult it gives you the basics of how to put together a clear album, especially if you have never done one before.

UPCOMING CLASS at Kaisercraft Outlet.For those of you in the Geelong area who couldn't come up, I will be running this class again for you guys on the Wednesday 24th June. 7pm - 9pm. For booking details and other classes(by Deb and Kylie) check HERE .
