Scrapbook Expo + Winner Announcement + New Store Stock!

By | 2017-06-21T11:39:30+00:00 June 21st, 2017|Chit Chat, Limited Edition, Page Kits, Reveals & GiveAways|

Hi everyone,

After a very busy (and fun!) trip to the Brisbane Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo, I just thought I would pop in to thank everyone who supported us. Whether you attended classes with Zoe or Gwen; shopped at our stand; or just took the time to stop and tell us how much you love the CVS products – thank you all! Attending events such as this, and having the opportunity to personally connect with so many lovely people, really is a highlight for all of us involved. (And helps make all the time, effort and looong days that go into it truly worthwhile!)

We were very fortunate to have Chris from Chris Wruck Photography take some shots for us, so a big thanks to Chris too!

Zoe’s tutor display…

Gwen’s tutor display…

The Cocoa Vanilla stand, which was filled with gorgeous products and equally gorgeous customers…

Lucky we had that big entry box on the counter, we had lots of entries into our daily prize draws. Congratulations again to Tracey, Kate and Margaret who were our three daily winners!

Gwen, Sue and Mandy…

Everyone that attended our classes at the expo this year received an entry into the draw to win a $100 shopping spree in our online store. We are very pleased to announce that our winner is…

Rose-Anne Monk!

Congratulations Rose-Anne. We will be in touch with you shortly with your prize details. Thanks everyone who entered the draw by attending our classes. We hope you enjoyed your time with Zoe or Gwen and that you went home with plenty of inspiration (and product) to keep you busy creating!

Now onto our next exciting piece of news…

New Store Stock!

For anyone who wasn’t able to make it to the expo, we didn’t want you to miss out. We are pleased to announce that we have a limited number of exclusive items that will be released into the Cocoa Vanilla store Friday 23rd June:

Until next time, happy scrapping!

 

You ROCK Prize Winners & Collection Update

By | 2017-04-12T09:16:08+00:00 April 13th, 2017|Reveals & GiveAways, Uncategorized, You ROCK|

Hi everyone!

Thanks so so much to everyone who commented on the reveal of our You ROCK collection!  As always, I was blown away by your response and I’m so happy to hear that you like it…  Looks like this is going to be another popular collection for the boys – yay!!

I also have some important updates about the collection, but let’s get the good stuff out of the way first!

The winner of the full collection prize is…

Rachel Dutko with comment number 14.

Congratulations Rachel!  I can’t wait to see what you do with your prize!


I decided NOT to use the random picker for our runner up winner…  I read EVERY comment and they all make me so happy, but Tracy Smith’s comment hit me right in the heart.

Tracy, I designed the collection… and I too have a boy that is unique and different and challenging… and I couldn’t be happier or prouder of my quirky dude, no matter how whacky anyone else thinks he is *sniff*


Congratulations ladies – keep an eye on your inbox as Sue will be in contact soon to get your details and we’ll get your prize out to you ASAP!

Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to leave a comment… The collection is now available for pre-order for our wholesale customers, and it will be hitting their shelves in a couple of short weeks…


UPDATE TO COLLECTION PREVIEWS

The great news is this collection has arrived and is being unpacked ready to send to our lovely retailers! However as I’ve been unpacking the stock, it has come to my attention that due to manufacturing processes there are some slight colour differences to what was intended and originally advertised. It can be hard to predict how colours will print on different materials, and usually the differences are not noticeable. This mainly affects the red and dark teal colours in the papers.

Please see the updated previews for the collection below. I think the collection still looks great and the changes don’t detract from the overall feel of the line, but I realise it is different to what was originally advertised so I wanted to make sure I posted the updated previews.  The Reveal post has been updated with full size previews if you would like to see them larger.

Retailers – if you have placed a pre-order for this collection, you have been sent an email with details.  If you didn’t receive it, please contact me!


And that’s it for me for now… Thanks so much again for all of your positive feedback on this collection!  Until next time, happy scrapping! 🙂

*NEW RELEASE* Page Kits and Limited Edition Flair!

By | 2016-09-23T17:51:39+00:00 September 24th, 2016|Chit Chat, Limited Edition, Page Kits, Reveals & GiveAways|

Hi everyone!

In addition to our new Make a Wish collection (available in store NOW), I am very excited to announce the release of a few extra products – Page Kits and Limited Edition flair buttons!

(I have been meaning to pop these up for a little while but have been snowed under due to the fantastic response the Make a Wish collection has received.)

Page Kits

Following on from the overwhelming popularity of our classes and workshops that were conducted at the Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo back in June, we decided to make the classes available as page kits. We received many enquiries from people who were unable to attend classes but were keen to complete the pages ask if we would make them available to purchase.

So we listened – and here they are!

(Please note that all kits are available in strictly limited quantities, and once sold out they are gone for good!)

Each kit has been exclusively designed by members of our design team, and contain everything you need to complete the layout/s shown in the picture (with plenty of extras to spare!)

Limited Edition Flair Buttons

These limited edition flair buttons were also a product that proved to be extremely popular at the Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo; so we felt it only fair to offer an extra limited run to our online customers.

There are 5 different limited edition flair sets available, or for those who need to have them all – check out the special offer bundle and save!

(And in case the name didn’t give it away – these sets are available in strictly limited quantities!)
