50 Cruises!?!?! Blog Giveaway

I was working late the other night updating our Cruise & Crop website.  I noticed that our "list" of sailed cruises had not been updated in a while so I proceeded to do so.  "How many crafting cruises have we organized?," I asked myself.  Despite the fact it was very late in the evening (way past my bedtime) I decided to make an official list.  To my surprise, we had just said Bon Voyage to our 50th Cruise & Crop cruise (our Cricut Hawaii Cruise this May).  By the end of 2012 we will have completed 58 cruises.

I had to call Gail right away and tell her the amazing news.  Well actually I text her - because it was so late. I never dreamed the count was up to 50.  We started in 2006 with only 1 cruise that Gail and I hosted and then it took off from there.  We are so blessed to have this job and work with all of you wonderful crafters.

To celebrate this milestone, we are giving away 6 Lickety Split Scrapbooks kits.  Lickety Split has been very instrumental in our business - when you count their 2 cruises for 2012, they will have organized 10 cruises with us - a record!  And we are currently working to get their 2 cruises set-up for 2013!

The kits include Bo Bunny paper, paper flowers, brads, buttons and other fun elements.

How do you enter?  Just leave a comment...

There are 2 types of winners:

  1. Four of the kits will go to those of you who have helped to make the 50 cruises possible (past Cruise & Crop cruisers).  Please leave the date you sailed and name the host that you sailed with.  And don't worry - if you have a cruise booked with us (future sailing) you qualify for this too.
  2. Still hoping to cruise with us someday?  We have a prize for you too.  Two of the kits will go to cruise hopefuls.  Just leave us a comment of your dream Cruise & Crop cruise.
Winners will be drawn at random and announced later this week.

Guest Designer: Jill Haglund

Please help us welcome Jill Haglund of TJ Designs as this month's Guest Designer.  Jill was one of the teachers on the Scraporium Cruise & Crop cruise in February 2012.  Jill has made some super cute cards using their Collage Packs.  Thanks for sharing TweetyJill!

Cards from TJ Designs by TweetyJill (Jill Haglund)

Bathing Beauties & Sea Cruise Cards

These fun cards I made after our very recent TweetyJill & Echo Park Cruise & Crop cruise. Staying in the sea cruise mood was easy after having such a great time.


1. Collage  TJ Designs Wild About You papers on the front of the card. (this set is new, and not yet on the web, please call 1-800-595-5497 if interested in Wild About You Papers Collage Pack).
2. Trim and add images that have been matted on *glitter paper. Images from TJ Designs Bathing Beauties Collage pack, (this set is new, and not yet on the web, please call 1-800-595-5497 if interested in Bathing Beauties Collage Pack).
 (you can also use: Ladies of the Sea Collage Pack) *TIP: To get paper images to adhere to most glitter paper you need to use a glue stick and rub the adhesive onto the glitter paper and the paper image both and smooth with a bone folder.
3. Ink up the sides of the card with ColorBox Cat’s Eye Ink pads.
4. Stamp card and envelope with
 all by TJ Designs.
5.  Add a 12 inch length of Martha Stewart Metallic Glitter Eyelash in fushia or lime green to fold inside card and tie in the front.
6. Add charms with desired adhesive.

These are really fun cards to make and send before after or during your Cruise & Crop excursion!

We have many more tags, cards, journals and more on our blog under Bathing Beauties Header.

Thank you so much!
