~Important Information~


We have decided to cancel our next crop date of the 3rd April 2011. We have made this decision based on the fact that on the same day it is Mothers Day! So to avoid disappointment to those who may miss out, whilst spending time with their families, we have made the decision to re schedule.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, we will re post when we have decided to re schedule the next event for in due cause.

To those that pre booked for the next event on the day in November; the discount offers that you booked for will still apply for next time. Payments are no longer required on the specified date, but two weeks before the next confirmed date instead.

Stay tuned here, for more details.
If you have any concerns or questions then please feel free to contact us:

Thank you for your understanding with this matter.

See you in 2011! Happy new year from the Big Event Team!

Lots of busy scrappers in the main hall, while others were busy in classes...

Debbie's Beginners Class..

Were back again, with Debbie's beginners class!
Debbie (also one of our event organisers) has created 2 simple page layouts for our beginners class...

This class, will be a little different to the others, like the other classes you will have the opportunity to create these layouts, but you will also be taught how to sort your photographs and how to create simple pages using different tools.
Tools will be provided for this class..if you are taking part you will need 3 portrait Christmas themed photos for one layout. For the second you will need 3 portrait and one landscape picture - Debbie has used 'snow themed' pictures but the layout is quite versatile and normal photos could also be used.
*Please note - we have had lots of questions regarding booking classes - you do not need to pre book these, you will be able to do this on the day. We wanted to show you all of the classes and give you details of what pictures to bring etc, so you can decide which ones you would like to do and be prepared for them, I hope this helps! *

Wendy's Layout Sneak Peak...

Today were popping in to show you Wendy's sneak picture of her layout class..

It looks fab doesn't it? If you would like to take part in Wendy's layout class on the day, you will need 1 6x4 landscape picture. Wendy's layout is not a Christmas themed layout, so your picture can be anything!
Although our kit is using the Echo Park range, everybody loves Christmas, the reverse of the papers are all normal patterned papers rather than a Christmas theme, So this layout shows, just how versitile it can be.
Unfortunatly due to circumstances beyond Wendy's control, she will be unable to attend on the day..disapointing we know :( but the class will still go ahead, but be taught instead by the Big Event Team!
Thank you Wendy for creating this class for us!
