Mermazing Cruise with Scrapp'n Savvy!

What do you get when you take forty crafty ladies and put them together on a cruise ship?? A ship load of fun!!!!  (and CRAZY fun shenanigans!!!)

We left on Sept 30 out of Galveston, on the Royal Caribbeans Liberty of the Seas.  I am NOT a seasoned cruiser, so I learned a lot on this trip.  My husband went with us and became our unofficial photographer. He put together a slideshow (complete with music), that he presented on our last day. 

We swam with sting rays, snorkeled and lounged on the beach. Our days at sea we spent in the crop room, which was available to our group 24 hrs a day. 

We had classes with Karen Burniston!! She is incredibly talented and we were so lucky to have her (and her trunk) show with us.  

Karrie Allen from Scrapp'n Savvy taught a super cute suitcase, cruise themed of course, that holds a scrapbook. She also had a store onboard!  You never know when you'll need a new tape runner!! 

I taught a Copic class with LaLaland Crafts Sassy Mermaid Molli and background clam shell. The project included a loaded envelope made with beautiful papers and embellishments.  

Michelle kept us all informed and produced a cruise project booklet that was fabulous, and helped run the store, and helped pack ALL THE STUFF, and made purchases for the cruise and......I'm sure I have NO IDEA everything she did. And guess what??? She's doing it again Feb 9, 2020!  

Karrie has scheduled another cruise in Feb 2020 to celebrate Scrapp'n Savvy's 10th anniversary, and sign up has started. 

We will have Karen with us, Karrie, Jane, and me.  Yay!! Come and join us!

Whoa!!Playing catch up!

Oh my goodness I'm so far behind with my blogging.  The only thing I'm farther behind on is cleaning my craftroom, so you can imagine what it looks like.

This photo is of the third quarters classes at Scrapp'n Savvy.

On the left is a beautiful Prima stamp from the Princess series named Maia. We colored the flowers as orchids, but they could easily be any color.  We finished it with a frame that we wood embossed and added some pretty pearls and ribbon.  

Center top is the Intro to Coloring by Copic workbook and class kit.  This was a full day of super fun coloring, techniques, and learning about our markers.  If you're interested in this class, I'll be teaching it again in January 2019.  

Center middle and bottom is from Stamping Bellas Snapshot series. We colored both stamps and assembled the cards in class.  The frame is so cute! It is just like the polaroids we took years ago. 

On the right is the Santoro Gorjuss Girl, Little leaf.  We colored her and layered the branch and beehive with dimensional adhesive.  The made the frame by using a die from Elizabeth Craft Design and some pretty printed cardstock. 

I've included links to the products where possible. All projects were colored with Copic Markers.  

One post down!!  Whoop whoop!! 

Until next time, take care, Becky
