FIVE and Counting!

FIVE days and counting until registration opens!

Happy Tuesday everyone - just five days until you can reserve your spot for CRAFT...I'm so, so excited to share our next big announcement regarding CRAFT Beach Retreat: Creating Reflective Art for Transformation...our sponsors!

We are fortunate to have wonderful relationships with some of the biggest names in the paper crafts industry through our kit club, Scrapbooking from the Inside Out. They have been incredibly supportive of our mission - to empower women and girls to be fully expressed through our craft.

So without further ado, I present our sponsors for CRAFT!

Creating Keepsakes is an incredible partner. As the premiere publication in our industry, they set the bar for excellence in scrapbook inspiration, artistic diversity and creating community through their Club CK online forums and gallery. I personally want to thank Editor-in-Chief Jennafer Martin for her encouragement and investment in our collaborative efforts. CK is a perfect sponsor as we're lucky to have not one but two Dream Team members as part of the CRAFT teaching staff - Linda Barber and Stacy Cohen. Our event will include special gifts, giveaways and more courtesy of our friends at Creating Keepsakes. Thanks, ladies!

We've been working with American Crafts for three years - their clean and crisp designs, game-changing Thickers and innovative embellishments make them an industry leader and their supplies are featured prominently in every single kit we create. Once again, we are fortunate to have two members of the American Crafts design team to share their inspiration with you at CRAFT: Amy Tan and Paige Evans, who also serves as AC's Studio Blog Hostess. Even more exciting? Today's announcement that Amy has created her very first branded line of Scrapbook products under the American Crafts label! We'll have access to her design talents on both sides of the table - we'll be using her brand new products and combining them with her super style. Thanks, American Crafts for being such a great partner!

What can I say about Prima? No one creates more intricate and beautiful products, be it flowers, bling, trim, or paper. And no one creates as many new items each season! We're always amazed at the range of choices offered by Prima, and by the talent of their International Design Team and instructors. The aforementioned Stacy Cohen is one of those fabulous designers and will be teaching us some great techniques using Prima products in innovative and meaningful ways. Many thanks to Prima's Lead Educator Sharon Laakkonen, and the Prima sales team, for all their support of our program!

We're expecting to add at least two more sponsors on the coming days, and we look forward to sharing the good news soon...

In the meantime, have we whet your appetite? A-List instructors creating emotion-based, personal projects; beautiful materials from amazing sponsors...and much, much more to be announced between now and Saturday when we open registration! Stay tuned!
