Cleo Jarvis


Our next meeting is on Thursday 7 February at Chepstow Rugby Club.

Our teacher for this class is Cleo Jarvis, from Bristol. Cleo taught very successfully at Scrap Camp in Swindon last year. This is her bio from her blog:-

My name is Cleo I am a 25 year old mum to 3 boys, living in Bristol with my lovely new husband James. I just love being crafty: I am addicted to scrapbooking and just love incorporating textile backgrounds into my layouts. I am also a DT member of Scrapstudio. I also love photography but am a novice!! I just love anything bright, funky and fun!!

You can meet Cleo on her Blog here . Cleo is teaching a 12" x12" layout in red and white papers, which could be suitable for a 'Love' theme, bearing in mind it's nearly Valentines Day!!! Although, the layout will work with any photographs that will match the papers. Cleo has used 3 photographs on hers, which are in black and white and the sizes are:

1 @ 5" x 3 1/2"
2 @ 3" x 2"

If you have any questions/queries, don't hesitate to email ; or if you would like to come and you haven't already booked please contact Louise or Pam.


As you will already know from Louise's recent email, we are so fortunate to have Teresa Collins from America coming to teach us in June. The cost of the evening is £35, which of course includes kit. We have announced this evening as early as we possible, so you have time to budget. We do however, need an initial deposit of at least £15. We will also be happy to accept post dated cheques for the rest of the balance. We will need to have full payment by the beginning of May and after this time unfortunately, we will not be able to give refunds, as we will have confirmed final numbers with Teresa, so she can arrange to have the kits shipped over to this country.

We have of course, given Club members the first chance to book themselves a place, for what we know will be a fantastic evening - after the end of February we will be advertising outside the Club, to make sure we have a full house for this event!

Check out the list of library books that are available in the sidebar of this blog. If you have any scrapbooking books that you don't want any more and would like to donate to the Club for the Library, then could you bring them along with you next month. For those of you who don't know about the Library:- we have a selection of books (very different styles) which can be borrowed each month for a charge of just £1. The books obviously need to be returned the following month. This gives everyone the chance to read a different book without too much financial outlay - most of the books retail at around the £15 to £20 mark.


We recently had our first Commitee meeting of the new commitee. The Club is always open to new ideas and we would welcome your input for any improvements or thoughts you may have, as to how we could improve the enjoyment of our members. Please feel free to approach any of the Committee at any time to put forward any suggestions or ideas. We really would appreciate any feedback, whether it be positive or negative.

We hope you enjoy 2008 - we have a fantastic calendar of events lined up this year.
