Scrappy new year party for six passionate Warwick women
WHEN most people picture a New Year's Eve party, it doesn't usually invoke images of card stock and embellishments, but for six women with a passion for scrapping, it was the perfect way to celebrate.
Happy Scrappin owner Wendy Sutcliffe said she decided to celebrate New Year's Eve with a twist.
"I wanted to do something different to take in our passion and see in the New Year doing what we love," Mrs Sutcliffe said.
Mrs Sutcliffe tries to do a monthly social event, and thought an evening of scrapping with a New Year's theme was just the ticket.
"We did a double layout with a New Year's Eve theme," she said.
The evening was attended by five of Mrs Sutcliffe's regular customers.
"Everyone had a great time," she said.
"It was a night of good food, good drinks and great company."
Mrs Sutcliffe started scrap booking about 14 years ago, and now runs a scrap booking store from her home in a purpose-built room.
"I have a wide variety from basic supplies to Cricut, Sizzix, Spellbinders, Kaisercraft and off-the-page projects," she said.
"I can demonstrate products people aren't familiar with and if I don't know myself, I will find out because I'm always looking for something different."
Happy Scrappin can be found on Mangan St. "The easiest way to find it is to head along Rosehill Rd and turn right at the underpass near the bacon factory," Mrs Sutcliffe said.
"It's the only gate on Mangan St.
"I'm open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10.30am to 4.30pm with a card-marking class on Wednesdays at 10.30am."
