#CaribbeanARTadventure2018 Starts NOW!

Classes / Events/ Paper crafting

#CaribbeanARTadventure Starts NOW! My friends have gone on these cruises a few times and they finally convinced me to go! We are leaving to drive down to Galveston today and tomorrow we board our Royal Caribbean ship, Liberty of the Seas. Seven days of fun, crafting and sun await us!

#CaribbeanARTadventure Starts NOW!

The most exciting part of this trip for me is the fun new papercrafting techniques I’ll be learning AND will share with all of you when I return. One of the projects is a 3D adirondack chair; how cute will that be!!

My plan is to post each day (internet willing) so you can journey along with us!

One of the swaps for the trip is a tag swap; check out this awesome idea. Think I’ll definitely make some of these after collecting sand for our beach stops!

#CaribbeanARTadventure Starts NOW!

Oh…remember Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration is in full swing and there are so many freebies awaiting you as you shop, party, or join the SU family!
