Cocoa Vanilla at the Brisbane Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo!

Hi everyone!

This year’s Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo is fast approaching, and we are getting excited at the opportunity to see so many of our lovely friends and fans there!

The expo is being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, located at South Bank, daily from June 9-11.

Cocoa Vanilla will have a retail stand at the expo where you will be able to come see (and buy!) all your favourite products – including all our most recent collections, page and card kits, and even some show exclusives!

We will also be hosting daily classes taught by Cocoa Vanilla owner and designer herself, Zoe Pearn; and design team member (and current Scrapbooking Memories Magazine master) Gwen Wruck. Both Zoe and Gwen are accomplished scrapbookers, as well as experienced teachers; and their classes promise to be jam packed with product and full of fun.

For Zoe’s first class, (daily from 9.30-11.30am); participants will create two gorgeous layouts using the hugely popular Wild at Heart collection. Zoe will also pass on her tips for getting the most out of your supplies and leave you inspired to continue to create when you get home. Class materials include papers, stickers, ephemera, wood veneer and more.

In Gwen’s 12.00-2.00pm class, participants will create two bright & beautiful layouts using the stunning Make a Wish collection and learn her tips for creating embellishment clusters in her signature layered style. (Those who are brave enough can even add some hand stitching to their pages.) Materials for this class include papers, stickers, ephemera and enamel shapes.

Zoe’s final class each day (2.30-4.30pm) is a traveler’s notebook style mini album, featuring the beautiful Love Always collection. Participants in this class will learn how easy it can be to create a treasured keepsake, and can either follow the directions, or go their own way to customise their album to their own needs. This feminine collection makes a pretty album that can suit a variety of themes (weddings, love, girls, family or even yourself!) Class materials include papers, stickers, die cut ephemera, traveler’s notebook and more.

All class kits include materials required to complete the projects, plus plenty of left-overs to use when you get home!

As an added bonus, every seat booked in each of our classes, will earn an entry into the draw to win a Cocoa Vanilla Studio shopping spree – with a $100 voucher to the online store up for grabs for one random participant.

About the Author:

Sue is a stay at home mum of 3 (daughter Brielle, and twin sons Hunter and Kaden) and lives in the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in Queensland. She began scrapping in 2008, shortly after her daughter was born. After the premature birth of her sons in 2012, she took 18 months off scrapping to concentrate on family and since her return says she is enjoying it more than ever. (Her biggest issue now is finding quiet time!) She currently designs for challenge blogs, and has had work published in magazines on numerous occasions, including the cover. She is also a 2017 Scrapbooking Memories magazine Creative Team member. Although primarily a 12×12 scrapper, she says she loves to dabble a bit with pocket style scrapping, art journaling, and the odd canvas and card too. She best describes her style as "versatile" - ranging from clean and linear one day, to messy mixed media the next.
