LIMITED EDITION SCRAPBOOKING

with Melissa Struhs


Limited Edition – 

Step out of your comfort zone and really experiment with a mixture of products from some of our favourite companies mixed with eclectic embellishments, all culminating in one kit. 

During the class we will be creating a double page layout and you will have enough leftover to create a smaller project at home with accompanying photos and a cutting list. 

We only create a very limited number of kits for the class and if there are any remaining, they will be available for sale after the class.


Held one Saturday each month, these scrapbook classes will be based on a current scrapbook collection, trend, technique or paper range.


These classes are well suited to beginners through to advanced.


This is Limited Edition's second year with Mel at A Place to Create.

Each class sample is displayed in store for the month before the class so you can plan your photos.

Class kits are prepared and the cost of class includes the full kit (sometimes a personalised title may have been added to the sample by may not be included in the kit).

We will be taking all the guess work out of the process by putting together a kit using some brand-new products from some of your favourite suppliers each month, creating inspiration designer layouts and introduce you to the techniques and tips and tricks to making the most of your products while trying something to vary your style. 

A detailed cutting list will help you navigate the variety of ways you can make the most of your kit pieces.


Class numbers are strictly limited so bookings are essential.
Class kits are approximately $37.50 - $40.00
Ph: 3851 2200

If you are unable to attend, you may put your name on the wait list for a kit!
