Merry Divas Christmas Sale

Good evening everyone

I have been so busy over the last month with my husband having
double knee surgery and getting an infection, working, running the
business and of course the girls with their dance concert
that I haven't had time to do a newsletter.

I would like to thankyou all for your continued support over the past 12 months especially my sister Bronwyn and my Design Divas Natalie Rayner and Marion Werren. I would like to wish you and your families a very merry christmas and a sensational year in 2012.

For one week only there will be a great Merry Divas Christmas SALE.
So commencing from now until Chrstmas Eve there will be up to 60% off some items with all other products with 20% off. That includes current products and also Christmas lines as well.

You can also get the Prima Wooden Frames for $17.95

Also all Scrapbook Trends Magazines, Cards and Create issues are only $12.00.

There are also heaps of patterned papers in the 50c, 75c & $1 sections so make sure you check them out as well.

We have in stock Christmas lines from Authentique, My Minds Eye, & Fancy Pants.

I also am stocking Artbin Satchels and currently have a couple of the single compartment satchels in stock but if you are wanting some double deep satchels I will be ordering them after Christmas so just let me know.

So that is it from me for the year and I hope you will be along for the ride in 2012.

Hi Everyone

At the upcoming crop day on Sunday 21st August we will be hosting the talented and creative Lisa Pate who will be conducting a Mixed Media Canvas Class.

Lisa will be showing us how to put together a mixed media canvas using some of the great new Matisse Derivan Products we have instore. She will guide you through the layering process, explain all about the products and you will finish with a one of a kind original showcasing one of your fave photo’s.

Lisa comes to us with plenty of experience. A former Scrapbooking Memories Master, Lisa teaches all over Australia. Her signature style is fun and colourful, with layers of lots of lovely papers and paints.

The class will be held at Edgeworth Bowling club and commence at 11 am and will go for a couple of hours and we will have a break for lunch in between in order as Lisa has told me for "layers to dry". LOL.

The price will be $30.00 for the class and this will include full instructions, a little pack from Lisa and the use of gesso, paints and gel medium provided by Scrapbook Divas. If you wish to bring your own paints and mediums the cost will be $25.00.

The items for the class can either be purchased through Scrapbook Divas or you can purchase them yourselves.  The class kit will be $50 and include the canvas, paints x 5 and Gel Medium (250ml). This has a RRP price of approximately $57.00.

Everything can be purchased through Scrapbook Divas either via the website or come and visit me at the studio at Macquarie Hills. Just check my facebook page for the times and details!/pages/Scrapbook-Divas/132228173483427

The items needed are as follows:-

Canvas 8 x 10
Mod Podge or Gel Medium
Scrap papers (most of the paper will be covered, it's more for texture)
Basic Kit (scissors etc)
photo 2 x 3"inches

Paints as follows:-
Matisse Structure - Naples Yellow Light, Quinacridone Red, Cobalt Teal
Matisse Flow - Antique White, Yellow Deep

Before and after the class is free scrapping time as normal on our crop days. If you do not wish to attend the class that is also ok and you are free to scrap the day away.

Please contact me either at or 0401313987 if you have any questions.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Hello all my Diva Friends.

After months and months of planning and decisions and hard work by my darling husband Greg in making this happen for me, I can now reveal that I have created a studio to be open on certain days at my home in Macquarie Hills in Newcastle.

The Studio will be open as follows:-

Monday - 10.00 am to 2.30 pm and then from 3.30 pm to 6pm
Fridays - 10.00 am to 2.30 pm and then from 3.30 pm to late

These are subject to change depending on my other work commitments and will be posted on Facebook on a regular basis.

I will also be open every second Saturday and Sunday. Times and dates to be advised.

I am also hoping to conduct some classes and crop nights especially on the Saturday nights and even a day crop.

I will still be continuing the crop days at Edgeworth Bowling club on a monthly basis.

I hope you will let all your friends in Newcastle know about this new venture and come and take a look at the Studio.

I will be planning a GRAND OPENING on a date to be advised.

I thank all my family and friends for their support and I look forward to meeting you all soon.

February Sketch Challenge

Well girls I thought you might like to try a sketch out this month but with a twist of colour and embellishments.

As it is the month of love look at the sketch and use the colour red and bling on your page.

This is courtesy of Page Maps (
I am hoping to get a sample page done in the next couple of days.

There is a $10.00 store voucher up for grabs and you need to have your entries in by the 26th February to be in the running.



Hi everyone, Diva Natalie here.

With Feb being the month of Valentines Day and my Wedding Anniversary - this month's challenge is to create a project / layout with the word love somewhere on it and to use a heart on the project too.

My sample is a page that I have done for my brother's wedding album - tried to keep is simple and not too busy. I have used Love as the title and a heart as an embellishment.

Have fun!
Cheers Natalie
