SENZ Weekly Wednesday - Edition One

Good evening! This is the first of our SENZ countdown blog posts - so here goes!

SENZ is the Scrapbooking Expo of NZ. In fact it's more than just scrapbooking - it's NZ's only Papercraft expo. You can expect to see retailers from all over NZ bringing their shops to the Telstra Clear Events Centre from Thursday 23rd June - Sunday 26th June. Not only that, many of the retailers bring in popular national and international tutors and offer classes for YOU! Head to the SENZ website for more details. The classes are released to the VIP's on the 20th of May and to the public on the 23rd May.

Artfull Crafts was the winner of the Best Stall Award last year and we had a huge team of hard-workers which led to an excellent stall and fabulous classes from the Kaisercraft Girls. So we're heading to Auckland and we hope to see you! Here's a photo of a few of the Artfull Team at the end of a great weekend!

Talking about winning - don't forget to keep reading below to find out how to win a one-day pass to SENZ for you or a friend.

We're pleased to announce that we will be bringing back the internationally renowned Melissa Kennedy and Al Hannah from Kaisercraft fame to run 5 of our classes this year - a card class, 2 double-layouts and 2 Beyond-the-Page projects. Betsy Clark will be joining us and running two card classes. She's the designer of our ever popular Card Temptations monthly kit (you should see this month's kit due out on the 15th - stunning!). And Liz Gregory (Owner of Artfull Crafts) will be running a very enjoyable class. There will be plenty of laughs, some unusual antics, some make-up and few other tricks up our sleeves. Let's just call it non-PC scrapboooking. Believe it or not you'll leave with a layout we're sure you'll love!!

Head to the the Artfull Crafts website for ticket bookings. The first 5 people who order a 3-day VIP pass (or SuperPass) from Artfull Crafts will receive entry tickets for the 3 days of the Expo, plus closer to the event will be sent a SENZ shopping Bag Voucher Book, make 'n takes and special VIP discounts. You'll also get the opportunity to see and book classes 3 days before the public (this is huge advantage as many of our classes had sold 30 spots by the end of that time). At only $34 you can't go wrong. PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO EARLY BIRD VIP SHOPPING THIS YEAR!

Through the next few weeks we'll be letting you know what stage of preparation we're up to (there's a lot to do!) and we'll give you some insight into the Tutors and what to look forward to.

Here are a few pictures of our stall last year - just to give you something to look forward to!
We effectively had 3 stalls! One for scrapbooking, one for cardmaking and one for Kaisercraft.

Leave a blog or Facebook comment for us before next week's Weekly update and we'll put your name in the draw to win a free Day Pass to SENZ. Keep it yourself or give to a friend. We will be offering give-aways and FREE classes over the next few weeks - so be sure to keep a close eye on this blog...
