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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your understanding with this matter.
See you in 2011! Happy new year from the Big Event Team!

'...Hi My name is Wendy...I live in a small town in the south east of England...right near the sea. I live here with my husband of 10 years and my gorgeous 6 year old boy. I have been scrapbooking for over 6 years now, since I went to a creative memories party at my sister's work and I have made some amazing friends along the way. I very quickly accumulated enough stuff to fill a scrapbooking room and spend as much time in there as possible. I love making pages, cards or anything that I can find that can be altered in some way!
When I am not in my scrapbooking room I can be found taking photos of everything...reading or trying to beat my son at Monopoly.
I have been lucky to design for several companies over the last few years...i am proud at the moment to design for American Crafts, Zva Creative, My Scrapbook Nook, Midnight Rooster and also for Papermaze. I am looking forward to seeing you all at the big event...Wendy x'
Thank you Wendy for being a part of our fab team! We are really looking forward to seeing your class!
Ok so in our next post, we will be sneaking a peak at our kit, which our designers will be using to create their classes! This will be optionally availible for purchasing on the day as well.

'Hi, I'm Debbie and I live in Suffolk with my partner Alan. I have always loved photography and being creative, I have now been scrapbooking for around 20 years. I first discovered scrapbooking when I saw a Creative Memories stall at The Suffolk showground. I was immediately hooked and signed up to be a Creative Memories consultant. I spent several years as a consultant and in that time I introduced numerous people to the craft of scrapbooking. I have run workshops and classes and visited WI groups to talk about scrapbooking. I have recently completed my first digital album of a holiday to Canada, which I really enjoyed doing. I am really looking forward to teaching at this event!'
Thank you Debbie for being part of the team! Debbie is also part of the organising team, so she will certainly be a familiar face on the day!
We will be back soon with our forth and final designer!

'Hi I'm Karen and I live in Suffolk, with my husband, two teenage daughters and Bazzil our dog.
I discovered scrapbooking in 2006, and was so happy to have found something which satisfied my craving for 'sticking and glueing'; something me and my eldest daughter used to do for hours when she was a toddler!
I've always enjoyed craft activities of some sort or another, and have my friend Evelyn to thank for introducing me and my girls to scrapbooking.
I've been lucky enough to have worked with Vanessa and Lesley at Papermaze in Otley, for nearly 4 years, in which time I have learnt so much and met some amazing people with a real passion for paper. I have enjoyed designing several Layout kits for the monthly crop and creating pages to display on the shop walls, which hopefully provided some inspiration for customers.
I love making pages with layers and 3D elements, generally ones I have made myself. I don't tend to buy ready made embellishments so my kits and projects are usually very 'D.I.Y'!
If there was one product I couldn't do without, it's ink pads; I don't think I could create a page without inking some edges!
I'm very much looking forward to designing a project for a class at 'The Big Event'.'
Thank you Karen for being a part of our team, and we are very much looking forward to your class!
Check back tomorrow, for our next guest designer!

All of the key information that you need to know is on the slidebar down the right hand side of your screen. But I am more than happy to answer any questions that you might have. You can email me, by clicking on the link in the sidebar on the right hand side. Or copy and paste the address into your usual email account - email@example.com You can also contact us via phone- you can call, text or leave a voicemail on 07790457555.
As you can probably see, this event is a scrapbooking crop day. But like no other, we will have lots of exciting activities, demonstrations and a raffel to keep you busy as well as an optional kit, local shops and of course your own scrapping to be getting on with.
The day will have a laid back feel to it, all of the demonstrations/classes will be optional for you to take part in. We have a totally seperate room for this and you can take part in as little or as many of them as you like. Or of course you can just craft in your own space and time with lots of like minded people around you.
I could really go on forever, we have lots to look forward to! Over the next couple of months I will be keeping you updated with news on the planning of the event. Such as introducing our guest designers, showing sneaks of the kits and our designers classes using the kit. So keep checking back regularly!
Anyway we have a Venue, a date and a time!

Time - 9.30am - 5pm
Prices - we have 2 payment options which are detailed in the right sidebar. A pre pay option is availible which will require sending a cheque to us via post for £8.
