Cruising and Crafting

Looking for a relaxing vacation created just for scrapbookers or paper crafters? How does a Southern European cruise or Caribbean cruise sound? Creating Keepsakes Magazine and Paper Crafts Magazine may have come up with your perfect vacation. Each magazine is hosting a cruise this Fall that will include exotic excursions and scrapbooking all in one.

The Papercrafts’ 8-day cruise will be going to the Caribbean in November. If this November won’t work for you, they will also be cruising again next year. Check out their website for upcoming details.

On this Caribbean cruise, you will complete a holiday card workshop where you will complete 50 cards! You get to choose from 4 different card styles. Imagine going home with all of your holiday cards completed. You will also attend a class where you will complete a 6 x 6 album where you can store all of your memories from your trip. You will complete over 100 cards on this cruise! There will also be classes taught by well-known paper crafters such as Stacy Croninger, Wendy Johnson and Karen Foster.

The Creating Keepsakes cruise will be attend by Lisa Bearnson, the founding editor of the magazine. They will be sailing in Southern Europe.

This cruise will also complete a souvenir 6 x 6 album. There are many classes you will get to attend while you are onboard the ship. You will get to visit seven different European cities while on this 8-day cruise.

For both cruise, rates are offered for attendees of the classes and non-attendees. This makes it easy to talk your husband into joining you, but he can be free to participate in his own activities while you are crafting.

If a cruise vacation in not in your future this year, Lisa Bearnson is hosting another cruise in February to Hawaii.
