Our First Post!!

We've finally taken the plunge...we now have a Cruise & Crop Blog!  Gail and I (Cheri) are super excited about it.

The purpose of this blog will be to post listings of new Cruise & Crop cruises, talk about cruising in general and share with you memories of past Cruise & Crop cruises.  And what would a blog be without crafty project pictures!  Gail and I will be posting some of our own as well as inviting guest designers to join in the fun.

To celebrate we are hosting a giveaway right away!  All you have to do leave a comment under this post.  And if you could subscribe to our Blog, that would be wonderful too!  Die Cuts With a View was generous to donate some Stacks!  We will be giving away TWO Simply Autumn stacks during this first giveaway.  And there will be more DCWV stacks to follow in the coming months!

Check out this cute wreath we made with Erin & Amy (of DCWV) on the Michaels Where Creativity Happens Crafting Cruise in October.





Check out Erin's DCWV cruise recap on their Blog

Bear with us as we add to and tweak our Blog site.  We welcome suggestions of what you'd like to see on our Cruise & Crop blog (these suggestions would be great as your giveaway "comment" submission).  Deadline to leave a comment for this giveaway is Monday, November 28, 2011.

  2. Super fantastic! We had a blast on the Scrapping Turtle cruise that you put together. I think I got more "having fun" than scrapbooking done! It was awesome.

    Looking good.

  14. Heys guys congratulations! I have actually tried to book myself on one of your cruises for the past year and a half, so this is very exciting for me to see! And even though my (teenage)daughter made fun of me, saying I would bring home a macaroni frame for her picture, I know better! I will be in the Hernando area in the early new year and I might just have to drop in on you guys, and maybe we can get my mother on board too! I am coming from Toronto, Canada so this is a big thing for me to drop in...now I can't wait! Hooray! Good Luck to you all, you'll be great!

  19. I was on the Michaels' cruise earlier this year and was sorry not to be able to go on the most recent one. I know all who participated had loads of fun; I still talk about what a great time I had. Congratulations on your new blog. I'm looking forward to seeing all you have to offer and will send ideas your way when I am able.

  32. I had such fun on the recent cruse to Beleaze and Cosumel. The scrapbook venue was roomy and well prepared. I enjoyed getting to know some really nice women. I will recommend this cruse to all my friends. I plan to go again.

  33. Glad to see the Blog. Have had 3 wonderful cruises with cruise and crop and looking forward to many more. My favorite so far is Cara's Cricuit Cruise. I really use my Cricuit now.

  34. I love that you now have a blog. Congratulations. I am always reading about your cruises and want to go with my girlfriend as we crop together a lot at the local scrapbook store (Archivers). I think 2013 will be the year as her daughter will have graduated from college. When you have to choose between college and a cruise, college usually wins out. You have a great niche with crops and cruises and I wish you tons and tons of success.

  40. Hi Gail and Cheri, just want to thank you for all your work on the Creative Memories Cruise in Oct with Tracy Croy. The Cruise was WONDERFUL, ready for another one next year. Thanks Billie

  41. I agree - the cruise was a blast! I've been on a lot of 'normal' cruises - my husband has never seen me leave the cabin on my own recognisance as I did on this cruise! Did we stop at islands? I never noticed - I was too busy!

    Thanks to Cruise & Crop, DCWV, and Michael's for doing it up right!
