The time has arrived!! the change over has occurred. Neil and I are now the proud new owners of Scrapbook Designs, but you haven’t seen the last of Elaine yet, for the next two weeks Elaine will be imparting her wonderful knowledge onto me, which is really great, making transition in for me so much easier. I can’t wait to really ‘get my teeth’ into business, but I need a learning curb first. So keep an eye on the blog to see what is happening, and where we are at, more news will be following shortly. It is wonderful to have met those of you that I have, and looking forward to meeting more of you soon.
Below are the Faces of Change, ‘the old and new’, Elaine on the right and myself (Alison) on the left.
From Elaine: Ashley and I are most excited for Alison and Neil as new owners of Scrapbook Designs. It has been an amazing few years and it has been a blast. It’s with great pleasure that we pass the torch onto Alison and wish her the very very best. I would like to thank all the wonderful customers, staff and friends I have met over the years through Scrapbook Designs, I leave with fond memories.

With Alison and Neil Crofts taking over Scrapbook Designs as new owners in just a few days, Alison and I thought it would be nice to let you know a bit about herself and Neil. Here is Alison’s greeting.
Hi everyone, my name is Alison Crofts, my husband Neil and I have been really fortunate to purchase Scrapbook Designs. We are really excited and looking forward to joining the team and getting to know you all. Our teams friendly service and commitment to provide you with an extensive range of products (your old favourites and new), making sure you are kept up to date with what the scrapbooking/paper craft world has to offer. Neil and I hail from Mount Barker, where I have been working for the past twelve years as the Supervisor of the Home and Community Care Day Centre, which is a centre for the aged and disabled. While Neil is mechanic & driver with the local school buses. How did a job like this lead into buying Scrapbook Designs? Approximately eight years ago I discovered scrapbooking, which I really enjoyed, from here I branched out into card making, along the way I became a regular customer at Scrapbook Designs. I progressed from really enjoying these pastimes, to being very passionate and addicted (according to my family) to it. I always thought it would be a really wonderful business to own, never for a moment thinking that this dream would come true…..but here I am, getting ready to step into the breach, as Elaine readies herself for a quieter life. I am at this present point of time becoming more exited with anticipation (and just a little nervous as well) …. Looking forward to the near future, the challenges it will hold, and striving to bring you a fun, relaxed and friendly atmosphere while you create, or preserve your precious memories. See you soon, Alison
