Meet Our Friends At Scrap4fun!

I am Vera Gieszen, owner of my ravishing scrapbook store Scrap4fun in the Netherlands.
Five years ago, I took over the shop which was located at the back of a farm in a little village. Last year I moved shop to a bigger location in Capelle aan den IJssel (near Rotterdam). In the five years I run it, my store has grown to be a well-known, all-round store for card making and scrapbooking. Scrap4fun is your shop for all your scrapbooking materials and a variety of nice classes for adults as well as for children.

Me and my Design team present our customers new inspiring workshops with the newest techniques, make & takes and many projects to inspire the creative mind. Beginner or advanced? No problem, Scrap4fun is the place to be! As soon as the new products arrive, me and my team get together to divide the collection and make beautiful and inspiring pages, cards or projects.

We offer a warm welcome and a hot coffee or tea to everybody who wants to drop by, whether you come for some serious shopping or just want to browse around and have a chat.

I am proud of the great atmosphere in my store.

The store is loaded with a large range of products, but our favourite brand is Bo Bunny! The paper collections they offer are always surprising, the colours are carefully chosen and the matching embellishments are so beautiful it would be a waste not to use them. Scrap4fun is famous for these Bo Bunny collections and my Design team loves to work with them.

We even organize scrap weekends and monthly scrap marathons. For the marathons the students receive a goody bag full of material to use in the challenge of the day.

Scrap4fun is also known for their scrap retreats. Twice a year we organize a scrapbooking weekend which means a lot of fun from Friday evening till Sunday late afternoon with two classes. One of these classes is always designed by Karen Burniston which guarantees at least one of her great pop up effects. The other class is designed by one of my Design team members.

Every first Friday of the month is free cropping from 10.00 o’clock till 22.00 o’clock and two make & takes in the evening. Check our website for more information

You can also follow us on Facebook: Facebook and our Blog: Blogspot Scrap4fun.

Here are some great examples with the Bo Bunny papers from my Design team members: Dana van den Bosch, Sandra Korten, Bianca van Haren, Tonja Vos, Paula Oomkens, Marianne Swijnenburg, Diane Bosscher, Lily van der Velde, Linda Cauberg en Vera Gieszen.
