Welcome to Card City!

Well, what do you think of our new Card Blog?? Looks swish doesn't it? Thanks Zoe, you did a marvelous job!

So, why do we have a card blog I hear you ask. Well, that's easy. Cards are our new found passion at Scrapbook City. We still love our scrapbooking, but we are venturing out into the new frontier of cards too, and loving every minute of it. So make sure you stay tuned into this great new blog to see lots of great ideas and get plenty of tips and techniques for creating that perfect card.

To go along with our card blog we have some new team members to introduce. Give a big welcome to Sandra, Rita and Nicole who will be creating lots of wonderful cards to inspire you and every now and then Kerri and I might even add one in! So there is lots on the drawing board.

To launch our new card blog and the new look scrapbook blog, we are going to start off with a great challenge and a fantastic prize!

We are going to kick off with a Kaiser Craft challenge. Kaiser is one of our most popular manufacturers and they are constantly bringing out beautiful papers and extras and they are Australian to boot. So we figured most people would have some Kaiser in their stash! But we are going to give you some restrictions, after all you can't have it too easy! You need to create a card using one of the following collections (or you could mix and match from them all!):


Up Up and Away

Secret Bird Society

Hippy Girl

You need to use at least 70% Kaiser product, remembering that Kaiser have lots of extras like bling, flowers, ribbon, letters and stamps that can all be included. And to kick off your creativity we have some samples for you.

We have two fantastic prizes to give to two lucky winners (one card and one layout) for this challenge. Up for grabs we have one set each of Secret Bird Society and Hippy Girl. The winners will be selected randomly so everyone has equal chance of winning. You have two weeks to complete the challenge (Tuesday 14th September midnight), with the winners announced on Wednesday 15th September.
