Hello, hello! Hope you all had a wonderful Easter break  and survived the school holiday break if you have children and

Copic markers are in stock and the first of the many workshops I have planned are inside this newsletter. I will be starting a
Copic Club, so you can learn lots of techniques, get reduced prices on markers and most of all ... have fun colouring!! See
inside the workshop descriptions for more details or feel free to ask me for a demo.

The Card making workshop is back in this calendar. You will make cards for all occasions so you’ll always have one on hand
when needed! I have had lots of fun searching the web and magazines for fun card techniques for you to learn. Of course,
these techniques carry across into your scrapping as well  so mark it in your diary and make a booking for a fun filled
workshop of card making!

Unfortunately, I have had to increase the cost of the Scrap’n’Roast. You all buy food, so I’m not telling you something you
don’t already know - cost of food, well let’s face it - living, is getting ridiculous! You may not know that the cost of these
evenings cover just the food, nibbles and drinks. I will also have to insist on deposits of $10 from everyone to secure your
place for the evening. Sorry, but I am getting caught too often with cancellations or no-shows and it makes catering a

I’d like to thank you for supporting Made by Mandy Scrapbooking via facebook and my blog. I am still struggling, but I am
trying all that I can to stay open. Please keep on spreading the word, hopefully together we will get more people coming to
workshops and finding out how much fun can be had in my scrap room!

I have been getting good feedback about the new emailer that I am using to get you the weekly updates. So far no-one
seems to have dropped mysteriously off or gotten only the occasional email. I have added in a link to the website if you click
on the dates at the bottom of the email. They will take you to either the contact page where you can send me an message to
book in or to the payment page where you can pay. Thanks to Pam for suggesting this and after a little research I was able to
add it in. If you have any suggestions or comments, I’d love to hear them 

On a more somber note, I need to draw everyone’s attention to a problem I have been experiencing for a while now. I have
outlined Workshop and Booking information in this Newsletter so that you know clearly the conditions of booking workshops
including paying a $10 deposit at the time of booking and a refund policy should a workshop need to be cancelled by you or
me. Many people happily pay deposits while many others attend workshops and pay in full on the day. This has led me to
being somewhat lax by not requesting deposits and unfortunately I have found myself in a very un-business like situation on a
significant number of occasions. To help you understand my problem I would like to outline the process I undergo in order to
conduct my workshops, so please bear with me.
      The cost of my workshops to you is kept to an absolute minimum and there is no in-built margin for profit. Consider the
        time I spend working on each workshop layout and then teaching the workshop…
      Making up kits for some workshops is based on the number of bookings I have, is done in advance and is a very time
        consuming task for me.
      I can only be paid according to the number of people who attend on the day.

My problem arises when people have not paid a deposit, do not attend on the day, have not notified me and are not
interested in buying the kit if I have made for them (as you know, not all workshops have kits). Unfortunately, the incidences of
this have been increasing and over time have had an increasingly significant effect on my business. While I understand that
emergencies can and do arise and sometimes we just plain forget, I’m sure you understand my dilemma too.

This has been very difficult to write as I do value and appreciate your support of Made by Mandy Scrapbooking and do not
wish to alienate you, my very special customers, in any way, I do need your help with this matter. While I am reluctant to insist
on deposits, it has to be done to ensure the future of my business and I would appreciate it if you would pay a deposit at the
time of booking. This will assist me in continuing to deliver workshops to you at a minimal cost. For the regulars, it will mean
that you will only pay a deposit once for the weekly workshops and then only for other irregular workshops and/or

To this end I have added a shop page to my website where you can pay workshop deposits, scrap'n'roast deposits,
scrap’n’roast in full and for the Intro to Copic workshop. This is an instant payment to me and I get an email straight away
saying you have paid. I hope this will help if you aren't coming into the shop or passing by. I would prefer that you paid in
person as I get charged a fee for that on-line payment, but if it makes things easier for you, then that’s a good thing!

If you can’t make it to a workshop but still would like to do the page, I am happy to provide a photo with basic instructions for
$10, so that you can do the page at your leisure.

I will soon be starting rehearsals for Forbidden Broadway! It’s
going to be sooooo exciting to be a part of the production team
and the whole process from auditions to the final performance.
Get ready to hear me singing the songs, writing notes to myself or
just giggling as I remember a funny line from the show… When I
have ticket details I will let you know - it will definitely be worth
seeing. If you’re interested in what the show entails, google
Forbidden Broadway and watch some of the you tube clips, they
are just hilarious and will give you an idea of what the show is all
about, plus why I would be giggling to myself!!!

My band has a concert on the 27th May, ABC In Concert. This is
one of two major fundraising concerts we hold each year. If you
would like to come I can pre-buy tickets for you for $10 or they are
$12 at the door. It is being held at the Adelaide West Uniting
Church, Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Brooklyn Park at 2pm. Love to
see you there! (No solos out the front from me this time.) As
always, an afternoon of musical enjoyment 

Bit of a long winded spiel this time! Thank you all for your support
and understanding.

See you all soon. Happy Scrapping, Mandy 

 Painted             I just love the look of diamonds arranged in an argyle pattern, how
Diamonds             about you? This layout contains both cut-out paper diamonds and
                     ones we are going to paint onto the background, combined with

Page maps            This great page map comes from Sketch Support. They put up
   may               sketches on their site with heaps of layout examples for each one, so

  Attack                I had so much fun with this Attack!! Cutting out heaps of triangles
your stash              and putting them together to create the illusion of chevrons (a zigzag
                        pattern) across the page. You will need 3 photos, 2 @ 4x6” landscape
   may -                and 1 @ 5x7” landscape. You will need 2 cardstocks or fairly plain
 Chevrons               papers for your background, 2 sheets of cardstock in different colours
                        for your photo mats, 6 different patterned papers at least 4x12” and

                        mounting tape.
    Fussy               The term fussy cutting has been in the mags and on-line recently, but
   cutting              the technique has been around forever.         It is the art of cutting
                        intricate patterns from the patterned papers. We are going to have fun
                        cutting out a pattern and make a cardstock border using an old tool I
        $17             found while cleaning up - don’t think I’ll be throwing it out after all!
                        You will need 4 photos @ 4x6” landscape (I trimmed mine slightly so
                        that I had space between them) and 1 photo @ 4x6” that you will cut
                        into a circle. You will need your basic tool kit, inks, circle cutting
                        system, 2 border punches, your title (mine is cut from leftover papers)
                        and a fresh blade in your craft knife!
 Rosettes & I took these photos of the kids over Easter clowning around in the
  bunting   wind with their towels, which of course reminded me of the circus,
                        which in turn is the place to find lots of bunting and rosettes!! You
                        will need 6 photos. 2 @ 4x6” portrait; 2 @ 3x4” portrait (or 1 @
        $20             4x6” landscape); 1 @ 3¼x6” portrait and 1 @ 3¼x2½” landscape.
                        You will also need your basic tool kit, inks and a title (mine is printed
                        on my paper). If you have a cuttlebug and the Tim Holtz rosettes dies

                        wait 
 Positively             Get out a fresh blade for your craft knife … you’re going to need it!
  negative              Usually we cut something out and throw away the negative - but not
                        this time, we are using both parts with the result being extremely
                        stylish in its simplicity! I am also going to refresh your memories or
        $15             maybe teach you for the first time to make rolled roses from double
                        sided patterned papers.
                        You will need 2 photos @ 4x6” either orientation. You will also need
                        your basic tool kit, craft knife and don’t forget your glasses 

All squared Well, you’re either going to love me or hate me with this layout!!
   away!    I’ve taken a perfectly good sheet of paper, cut it up into squares on
                        the diagonal, distressed and inked each square then stuck them all
                        back together!!! Lots of fun  You will need one 4x6” portrait photo
        $20             for this layout that will be able to be cut down to fit a cute chipboard
                        oval frame where the opening is just a smidge under 4x6”. You will
                        also need your basic tool kit, edge distressor and inks.

 Page maps              Lots of fun with this page map by Stuck on Sketches. The page is
    july                filled with photos and rectangles for you to add as much or as little
                        embellishing as you’d like.
                        You will need 6 photos for this layout. 3 @ 4x6” landscape, 1 @
        $23             4x4” and 2 @ 2x2” (or you could just have 4 landscape photos). You
                        will need your basic tool kit, inks, paper piercer, two different border
                        punches, a title, embroidery needle, journal pen and if you can - your
                        journaling printed out onto white cardstock/paper measuring 2x3”.
