A Crop & Create Giveaway!

A Crop & Create Giveaway!

Happy Friday SCT friends! Some of the SCT team is in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan for our final Crop & Create event of the year! This year we've held 7 large events in the following cities:

  • Markham, Ontario
  • Calgary, Alberta
  • Moncton, New Brunswick
  • Abbotsford, British Columbia
  • Cornwall, Ontario
  • Thunder Bay, Ontario
  • and finally, Saskatoon!

We started hosting these large weekend retreat events in 2011 right here in Saskatoon and five years later, we're happy to be hosting event number 31 back where it began! A full weekend of education, inspiration and many, many laughs. Our team which includes Vicki Boutin, Nicole Nowosad, Virginia Nebel and Angie Blom has traveled from coast to coast this past year sharing their talented and creative gifts with all our attendees. We've also invited many of our industry friends to join this year including Amy Tan from American Crafts, Layle Koncar from Simple Stories, Jodi Sanford owner of Fancy Pants, Ali Edwards, and Cynthea and Tonya, owners of Doodlebug! They have each shared their unique papercrafting talents with our attendees. It's been a very exciting year for sure and we want to share a little of it with you.

At each event our attendees are provided with a lovely goody bag which includes a beautifully coordinated kit by Vicki and Virginia. We have one goody bag left from this year's events and we would love to share it with one lucky reader today!

File 2016-11-04, 8 31 13 AM

This wonderful bag has products from the new Simple Stories Hello Fall collection, Jen Hadfield's Warm & Cozy, Pebbles Woodland Forest, Bazzill Paper, American Crafts Thickers and so much more! It also comes in a pretty pink Crop & Create bag with full instructions to create several layouts and cards. For an opportunity to win be sure to leave a comment below by Thursday, November 10th! Good luck!

And now we're off to set up event 31. It's amazing to think about that number. So many memories but most of all so many friends we've made along the way. Hope you're ready Saskatoon, we're going to have a fun and inspiring weekend ahead. Just wait until you see what we have in store for you! We will try to post to our Instagram Stories this weekend as we can so be sure to follow us if you can.

Would you love to join us an event in 2017? Dates and locations have been posted for our spring events here and more to be added for the fall!

Have a wonderful day and weekend SCT friends!
