On Friday, 7 July 2017, South Africa’s largest scrapbooking and quilting craft company, FabScraps launched their brand spanking new craft room and two of their latest collections.
Joined by a handful of local retailers, Andrea, FabScraps Digital Manager and Caitlin, FabScraps International Business and Logistics Manager introduced the Wild Beauty and Jingle All The Way collections.
The Wild Beauty collection is playful with a mix of beautiful sentiments and breathtaking water effects, while the Jingle All The Way collection is a contemporary Christmas collection like never seen before.
Jingle All The Way
FabScraps’ high quality paper is archival ink safe, acid and lignin free. The chipboard embellishments used to be cut from grey board, however, the team will now cut embellishments from a new type of board called beer board. This board will hold true colour so much easier. Each collection is flanked by high quality stencils, chipboard embellishments, a chipboard album and my favourite: a Carders Pack. The Carders Pack consists of 24 6×6 double sided paper and die cut embellishments. Thank you FabScraps for thinking of the card makers too!
Be on the look out for the Lazy 8 cards, a collection of mini cards and envelopes, for that gift card on the go with gorgeous patterned envelopes and plain cardstock. While you are on gift cards, stock up on the coordinating gift tags and ribbon!
The introduction of cupcake holders with cupcake topper stencils left retailers in amazement! Those mini stencils are so versatile, you can use them for paper crafts and/or in the kitchen!
The FabScraps Craft Room is a beautiful spacious area, with decorative walls hand-painted by Brigitte Wimbush, the FabScraps CEO and shelves of jaw dropping, heart racing, blood pumping craft goodies from craft heaven.
Most of the projects displayed in their craft room were designed by the talented Tanya Cloete, a design team member. Trisha Naicker and Brigitte Wimbush are the head designers over at FabScraps. Trisha Naicker, who was employed as a textile designer has already designed two paper collections, which has sold out both locally and internationally. Check out her collections, Woodland’s Friends and Study Buddies, here.
If you are hosting a craft event why don’t you get in touch with the team over at FabScraps and book the prettiest craft room in town – they are situated out in Hillcrest, but it is definitely worth the drive.
Thank you FabScraps for a lovely morning with delicious sweet treats.
Until next time, learn new things and if you can be anything, choose to be a kind human!
Yours in paper crafting
