Hope everyone is getting as excited as me--I can't believe we are all heading out so soon--am I dreaming?? A mid-winter SCRAPBOOKING break in the Caribbean--are you sure I'm not dreaming?
We've all been super busy putting all the final touches and details together--products to be shipped, kits to be made, and most importantly FUN to be had! You will not believe what is in store for you on this cruise!!
By now, most of you should have received your "welcome" package--this is where you will find tons of answers to all those little questions you've been thinking about. I've been studying my cruise ship map so I won't get lost and I have my "NCL" tattoo ready to wear! My husband will be joining me (yippee) and our next course of action is getting our excursions planned. Between all the scrapbooking and sightseeing, we're all going to need a vacation by the time we get home!
So let's talk SCRAPBOOKING! In your package you will find your supply lists which will cover everything you will need for your classes. Remember to pack light as we are sending you home with a bunch of goodies! You'll also find your Itinerary with your class times and crop nights--yippee--is it feeling real now??
I'll be teaching a couple of classes with you on board. My feature class will be a two page layout with my amazing sponsor MAKING MEMORIES! You will not believe all of the product you will get in this class and how much you will have leftover to create more layouts, cards and treasures! They have been extremely generous and you guys will all be thrilled. We will be using their new "Poolside Paperie" and it is yummy!! The layout I have designed specifically for the cruise is called "Paradise Found" and it will be perfect for all of those great Caribbean pictures you will be taking. This double page layout is designed to showcase 10 of your fav photos of Paradise--from 2x2 up to 5x7's! Here's a little sneak peek--don't want to give too much away:)
The other exciting news is that Making Memories has given me TWO SLICE machines to bring on board for YOU to use!!! I'll be demoing them during the crops and you'll be able to use them to put those finishing touches on all of your layouts! How cool is that--a personal digitial diecut machine to create your titles, shapes and extras! I LOVE my SLICE and if you've never tried it before, get ready to fall in love! It's the best thing since sliced bread--hahaha, sorry corny joke:)
Next up, I'll be teaching one optional class on the Thursday at sea. This is a 12x12 canvas class and will be an amazing souvenir of your cruise. If you've never tried a canvas class before, this is a must! But be forewarned--they are addicting (and super fun and easy!) All materials, including the 12x12 canvas, will be provided in this class and you will be able to add in some of those "special" seashells you collect on the beach too! Take a little piece of heaven home with you;)
To see all of the instructor's optional classes as well as more photos, check out the "Add-ons" on the Crop and Cruise website. Space is very limited in all classes, so don't delay!
Lastly, will be our super fun and crazy Crop Nights--more projects and more playing! I'll be working with the fabulous Crate Paper and your Technique Treasure is an entire layout! WooHoo--you will be shocked at all of the goodies they have given each and everyone of you--over $20 value. Here's a sneak peek of that layout--loads of layers and dimensions--that's my style!
This layout is perfect for absolutely anything and you'll get to personalize and change things up to make it all your own--you'll love it!
So hope everyone has started packing! I figure it is highly unlikely that I will be wearing any shorts and tank tops in the next week or so, so they may as well get into the suitcases!
Happy Packing and we'll talk with you all soon!
