Retreat & Kits!

WOW! What a weekend was had by all at the Savvy Delights Retreat last weekend! Once again San did an amazing job of putting it all together, and the shop did amazingly well with the help of all my girls and also with the extra stock brought along by Delights & SFS. Such an AMAZING group of girls that I'm so proud to be a part of, this little ol' scrapbooking world of ours continues to prove to me that it IS a good place and one that I can't imagine not being a part of.

I was so excited to have all of my Savvy Design Team Girls all in the one place, not something that is possible more than once a year really. I would give anything for more time with the gorgeous Renee and her beautiful work, and so so so wished I live closer to Kerryn - that lady is just a gem and someone I adore with all my heart. Sara was there helping me with EVERYTHING - before, during & after - including designing & putting together the gorgeous new September Kits (which I'll show you in a minute!). Anthea was there too...with her girls, bahahaha!

Once again there was a ton of help from my amazing besties, Leesh & Linda...who towed the trailer containing the shop to retreat for me. Thanks girls, I can always count on you. xx

We had an awesome class with the amazing Kerryn - designed with the funky new Halloween range from Bella Blvd. These kits will be released REALLY soon online, giving you the chance to purchase the class with instructions for FOUR projects including 2 layouts and 2 OTP's. I am yet to do my pages but I have the photos printed ready to go, waiting for some spare time! Can't wait!

At retreat we released TWO new kits for September which were this month a super budget price so they were affordable for everyone.

*PLEASE NOTE* all of the pages I'm about to show you are from the month long sketch challenge running over at Scrapbooking from Scratch - make sure you check it out!

We have the She's Savvy Kit - based on the gorgeous new Crate Paper Random & Basic Grey Indie Bloom combined with BRAND NEW THICKERS! So much value for only $25, you can't beat it. Here's the prettiest kit I've seen in ages, and the pages I've managed with it so far...

So Happy - me & Dan on our wedding day, him signing the marriage certificate and me checking out my new bling!! Love this photo, loved that day, love my hubby still with all of my heart.

And a closeup....

Bubble Wand - Miss Georgie at the beginning of last year at Loz & Luke's place, having some pure innocent fun with a bubble wand.

And the awesome He's Savvy Kit - based around the new Fancy Pants Off To School and again Crate Paper Random, with BRAND NEW THICKERS! For only $30 you can't go wrong.

Here it is, along with my layouts - there is another I can't show yet, but I have managed four layouts from it now, how good a value is that!

Three Dress Changes - Dan & his mines rescue team before heading off to QLD last year for the Australian comp.

And a closeup...

Brush Your Teeth - funny boy Coop with some crazy glasses on at a b'day party, but a story about him being a typical boy that 'forgets' to brush his teeth!

And a closeup...

Boys Can Dance Too - Coop & his friend Zach dancing along to musical statues at Blakey's party, funky little dudes!

There is a ton of inspiration over on our Scrapbook Savvy Facebook page from all the DT as well, everyone was playing with something at retreat and the results were amazing!! Get your kits here, and while you're there check out all the new arrivals in the store...its a great week to be Savvy!

Lots more to share but will save it for another day, see you soon!
