Cruise & Crop Video and My 2018 Schedule

Hello all, and although the Patriots lost last night, I am wishing you a Happy Monday.

I've returned recently from my first teaching adventure on Cruise & Crop's January cruise to Cozumel, hosted by Scraporium, one of my favorite Florida scrapbook stores. I made a short video recap of this fun time, so I hope you enjoy watching.

Also, I'll be finalizing the exact dates for my teaching schedule this year, but for now I'm sharing what I do know at this time. (Dates are subject to change, so stay tuned for updates)

January 25 - 29  Scraporium's Cruise & Crop

April 6 - 8  The Scrapbook Store & More in Greenfield, Wisconsin

May 4 - 6  Simple Pleasures in Colorado Springs, Colorado

Summer months TBA (waiting to firm up a few bookings)

September 28 - October 1  Your Creative Mountain Retreat in Hendersonville, North Carolina

November 10  My 10th Annual Holiday Workshop in Melbourne, Florida

In between these teaching gigs, you can find me on my YouTube channel (click on that big YouTube tab in the right hand column of my blog) with new projects, tutorials, and craft tips for keeping organized. I also share a brief video on my channel of each store I've visited.

Later this week I'll be sharing a fun and easy Valentine project using two very different Graphic 45 paper collections. The video will also include some tips on using SVG files for your cutting machine, as well as the new little Mini Envelope Punchboard and why you need this small version of the very popular Envelope Punchboard from We R Memory Keepers.

You'll also find me through Graphic 45, as I continue to serve as a Special Projects Designer for this wonderful company. I'm designing projects for their new Club 45 program alongside Maria Cole and Kathy Clement, plus I help with project designs for Graphic 45 to teach around the globe on their travels. And as always, you can get FREE project sheets complete with cutting measurements and step by step instructions from their blog here. They update these all the time, so make sure you subscribe to their blog so you don't miss anything new.

I'm so happy to stopped in today. Leave me a comment so I know you did! I'd be delighted to hear from you.
