About Creative Indulgence


Welcome to the all new Creative Indulgence. A new scrapbooking event on the shores of beautiful Lake Taupo.

“What is Creative Indulgence?” allow me to explain…

Creative Indulgence is aiming to be a truly creative weekend away on the shores of Lake Taupo for you and your crafty friends. An opportunity to kick back, relax, create and enjoy each other’s company in luxury surroundings for up to 40 creative hours! Welcome to the Millennium Hotel – Manuels, Taupo.

I’ve planned this weekend for a small group of like-minded friends. I’m working on 40’ish participants in all, making this a cosy and productive weekend.

Look at the gorgeous space we will work in…


I’m also very pleased to say that Imagine If will be our on-site store throughtout the weekend. So you’ll have no problem getting hold of essentials and indulging in the new products on offer at the time. There is nothing like an indulgent little splurge is there?

You’ll have beautiful food on offer across the weekend too, taking advantage of sumptuous menus at the Beach 243 lakefront restaurant. You can also enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple at happy hour or after dinner in the Lakefront Bar.


My vision for this event is that it is about you being offered the most relaxed environment to be hugely productive and to return home with a fabulous stash of pages for your albums. There is no intention to offer classes at this event you bring your own projects.

As an added extra you will receive a pack of special release papers, chipboard and other embellies for you to use as you desire. There will be enough product for approximately 4 layouts. We’ll include a few sketches and have some prepared samples should you need some ideas?

There will be a Mixed Media station set up, and other equipment available for your use. You’ll simply have no reason to not be creative – unless the view draws you in?!

Does this sound like your cup of tea? If so here are the two options available:


The Essential Indulgence                              $535

  • Your “little corner of the world” in the crop room;
  • Crop time from 9am Friday thru 2pm Sunday providing 33 hours of creativity;
  • Morning Teas, Lunches and Afternoon Teas for 2.5 days;
  • Dinner in Beach 243 Restaurant on Friday and Saturday evenings;
  • Bonus Project Pack;
  • Mixed Media Bar and other equipment for your use.


The Ultimate Indulgence                                $645

  • All of the above PLUS
  • You join us from 4pm on Thursday thru 2pm Sunday making it 40 hours of creativity!
  • An extra Afternoon Tea (on arrival) plus Dinner at Beach 243 on Thursday night.

Now that is Indulgence!!!


Accommodation and Breakfasts

You can opt to join us and stay at the Millennium Hotel or perhaps book a bach with friends, it’s entirely over to you? The hotel has offered us preferential rates for accommodation for the weekend, there are several levels of beautifully appointed rooms available. Oh, and for those that stay in house, there is the hot pool known as the Grotto too!


Accommodation and Rates

We make the bookings on your behalf. Once you have registered please email me at info@scrapaholics.co.nz with details of the accommodation type you would prefer. Some options have only one or two rooms so it would be wise to have a second choice as well!

Accommodation Options - UPDATE: Monday 2nd December 2019, all rooms not allocated to a participant already are now block booked by a wedding party. We need to request rooms and they will be allocated if available and released by the wedding party. I am just waiting to hear back about the rooms in the OASIS MOTEL nextdoor? Please contact me (Jodi) info@scrapaholics.co.nz and we'll see what options we can still book?
