woohoo! I am so pumped.
This month is the big kick off to our first ever Crop & Create!
It is taking place in Saskatoon.
I am going to talk about Crop & Create on today's post,and even if you aren't attending please stay tuned. On the Crop & Create Facebook page we are hosting a couple challenges EVERY single week of September. These contests are open to EVERYONE. Not just those attending, everyone you know. So let's get started on how it works.
Every Monday, we will announce a card sketch & a layout sketch on our CROP & CREATE facebook page and we will also announce the winners . We also may toss in other challenges in there. So you will have to stay tuned. We were given SOOOOO many prizes to give away and we want to spread the love from our super awesome Manufacturers that we think just rock!
The Card challenges are being hosted by Kimber Mc Gray. Kimber will be joining us in Saskatoon for the first Crop & Create. She is the author of 3 Bestsellers and soon to be one more... The first card challenge she posted today is:
Here is the first layout challenge. These layouts are brought to you by Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine; created by Becky Fleck-author of Page Maps 1 & 2.
This is MY take on this sketch. I ADORE this sketch so it is definitely going in my fave collection. Can be interpreted soooo many ways!
Also for this first week you have another way to win. Simply send your friends to our facebook page and "like" us and make sure they say "----" sent me. You will also win a huge prize. This month we have sooooo many prizes, lot's to go around. So enter as many times as you would like. We are so blessed that our manufacturers think this event is such a great idea that they have rewally spoiled us, and anyone who might be interested in attending one day.
Keep in mind, if you are from Saskatoon or area, we do have space available to still attend. The hotel has been super accomodating to us too. We sold out of a few classes so fast that we asked for more room, did a little shuffling and by acquiring a larger room we were able to open up our attendance to hold more people. So it's not too late to join us.
Crop & Create is the first of a classy, creative event that will offer you many ways to have fun, and take classes. We pride ourselves that we have brought some of the best educators in our industry in. These ladies have travelled all over the world educating, and/ or have become authors. They will be on site to sign your books if you would like and they are looking forward to having fun with all of you! Our swag bag is something that is exclusive to us, not a loot bag that is a mismatch of older product thrown together in a bag given to you. This SWAG BAG has been prepared by Becky Fleck who has customized each and every bag so that you walk away with a fantastic surprise. It is the first of its kind in this industry to receive as a swag bag. The manufacturers LOVED our concept and jumped on the chance to sponsor it. We can't wait to see what you think of it.
We are having a meet & greet, late night dessert bar, make n takes sponsored by major manufacturers and they are FREE to you!!!! Woohoo. We have a few contests that will take place. Some will be released next week so you can start preparing. We will send out all class supplies/tools needed for your classes next week.
We have started putting out sneak peaks of classes on the Scrapbook & Cards Website. Please join us!!!
