Pair flip-flops and ocean air with creativity and delicious paper crafting product and you’ve got magic! We’re so excited for the Paper Crafts Cruise we can hardly stand it!
On top of fabulous dining, exotic destinations, and breathtaking ocean views, you’ll create unique projects and learn new techniques with Paper Crafts editors and still have time to explore the ports of Cozumel, Belize, Isla Roatan, and Grand Cayman.
If you haven’t already signed up for this delightful get-away, I’m here to entice you with some of the fun classes you can take while we venture around the Caribbean come November 5-12, 2011 on Carnival’s lovely lady Liberty! We’ve got eight great classes planned for participants and given the time of year, Christmas is definitely on our minds.
Jolliest of Holiday Wishes – Add that personal touch by creating and sending family and friends a hand-stamped holiday greeting card that is sure to wow and delight the recipient! Class participants will stamp 25 delightful greeting cards created using the latest and greatest product from manufacturers such as Cosmo Cricket and Unity Stamp Company.
All Wrapped up for the Holidays – Giving the perfect gift will be even more meaningful this year when wrapped in handmade and hand-stamped boxes and bags designed specifically for holiday gift-giving. Five beautifully designed bags and boxes can serve as a delightful holiday centerpiece, excellent hostess gift wrap, or party favor packaging.
Adding the Finishing Touch with Tags – You’ve wrapped the gift, tied the bow and now all that’s left is that stunning final touch, the tag! We’ll be creating a dozen wonderful tags that can be used on packages, as decoration for your tree, or can be used as an instant embellishment on a holiday card.
But it’s not JUST about Christmas. We’ll be basking in the sun, so it’s only fitting that we make pretty paper crafted stuff for the whole year through. We’ll be so relaxed and having a load of fun!
Colorful Congratulations Card Set – Participants will create five fun monochromatic congratulations cards (to keep or give as a gift) using the versatile Sophisticates By Stephanie collection from Bella Blvd. Each card is created based on sketches that will appear in Go-to Sketches for Card Makers - a special issue of Paper Crafts magazine.
Everybody Loves a Birthday Card Set – The It’s the Little Things collection from Fancy Pants will inspire a birthday card for everyone on your list! We’ll create five cards to give to a variety of celebrants in a classy & elegant style as seen in Card Style – a special issue of Paper Crafts magazine. Learn what makes a card a certain style and determine which style fits you best!
Many Thanks Card Set – Show how much you care with a thoughtful thank you card. In this class, you’ll create five lovely thank you cards using the wildly popular and ever so gorgeous Portrait collection from Crate Paper. Explore your shabby chic side and learn the freedom of creating cards from a sketch.
Bright & Cheery All Occasion Card Set – It may be November, but we’re soaking up the sun in this class using the cheery Summer Days collection from Echo Park. You’ll create five cards to brighten someone’s day just because. And get ready to rock your fun & cute style, cuz we’re on a cruise, right? And what’s more fun than that?
Banners and Boxes and Birthdays, Oh My! – Create a bright, fun and welcoming birthday banner using Cosmo Cricket’s Social Club collection and Fancy Pants chipboard pennants. You’ll also be creating eight treat boxes, eight thank you notes, and eight napkin rings for a total of 33 elements!
So what are you waiting for? It will be the time of your life, and you deserve a little time away, right? And not only will you have an amazing time and meet new friends, you can have a head start on your holiday crafting!
