Hey Folks! How have you been? It has been all about class prep and kid time here in the Boutin house these past few weeks. Like always that eats into the blogging time. As a result I have a TON of stuff to post! So grab a coffee or cold drink and pull up a chair. (Deep Breath)...here we go...
CardMaps Vol. 3 is shipping on March 14th and I get to give one away!!!!
Go check it out HERE. You can pre-order your copy now. I LOVE these idea books!
Leave a comment for a chance to win!!!!! I will draw a name on the evening of Friday, March 8th.
As I said, I have been working on classes for 2013. This is a very time consuming endeavour. If you have been in one of my class you know I take special care in putting together good "class kits". This takes a lot of time...securing product, ordering, organizing shipping, kitting...all before I even start the actual design part. That being said...these next classes are the bomb-diggity!!! I was so inspired after CHA Winter and I am excited to share what I have put together. Take a look at a few peeks...
I will be teaching two 3 hour workshops at SCRAPFEST KITCHENER on April 12th and 13th.
On Friday, I will be teaching the Precious Metals Layout Workshop. Two Double page layouts using Just Because from Little Yellow Bicycle, American Crafts Lucky Charms and Core'dinations Cardstock. Lots of techniques using Viva Decor Inka Gold, vellum and a few nifty tricks.
I will have more images. Waiting for all of the product to roll in.
Check it out HERE.
The second class...
This one is the Lovely Layers Flip Book. I LOVE this one, too! It is filled with the new Maggie Holmes stuff from Crate Paper, Webster's Pages, Fancy Pants Designs, Queen and Co and Core'dinations!!! Lots and lots of goodies! We will be layering stamps, Viva Decor, Ranger, masks and products. Fun, fun!!!
Check it out HERE.
If you haven't been to Scrapfest...what are you waiting for? Lots of classes, shopping and fun!!! It really is a great event! I'm sure I will have a few kits left to sell. Let me know if you are interested.
If you have spent any time with me I have told you that the last scrapbooking cruise I went on with the The Scrapping Turtle was beyond a GREAT time!!! Well guess what!?!?!? They are doing it again!!
Join us February 1, 2014 for a 7 Night Cruise & Crop! That's right, another CRUISE! We'll be cruising out of New Orleans, Louisiana and heading to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. We will be offering 3 full days at sea where you can scrap your hearts out, plus evening studio time after our days at port! Vicki Boutin will once again be joining us to teach the classes that are included in your conference fee. If you missed our last cruise, you sure won't want to miss this one!
We think a Cruise & Crop offers the best of both worlds! Lots of time for scrapbooking... but the added bonus of a vacation to warm sunny places (and lots of photo opportunities too!!) You can choose to go with your friends for the ultimate girls' getaway, or even take your family too! There are tons of fabulous amenties onboard Royal Caribbean's Serenade of the Seas! While you are scrapbooking, your family can be lounging by one of the 6 pools or whirlpools, playing in the waterpark, playing a round of mini golf, climbing a rock wall and so much more! Plus you will have three days at port with lots of excursion options... or just go lay on the beach! What more can you ask for!?
Space is limited so book your cabin today!
Cruise Cabins start at just $619 per person*! (Please note these rates are valid through May 24, 2013, after that, current rates will apply!)
Go HERE for all of the details!!!
Ok...another breath...that's it for now!!!!! Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of CardMaps Vol. 2!!!!!!!
