As you plan your creative weekend away, here are some additional details about this amazing event!
Create & Inspire 2020 is not a crop like our traditional Crop & Create events. This is an inspiring, education focused event. Each attendee will take 5 amazing classes, one with each of our instructors Heidi Swapp, Amy Tangerine, Vicki Boutin, Paige Evans and Shimelle! There will be breaks in between where we will eat, shop, laugh and make lots of memories!

In an effort to offer as much information as possible, here are a few more details:

- We will have our two amazing onsite stores in a ballroom down the hall. You’ll want to pick up some of the latest and greatest products from Two Scrapbook Friends and The Workshop.
- We will provide you with a list of the essentials you’ll need to bring. As it’s not a crop event, you won’t have to pack much!
- As we will be set up in a classroom setting to make sharing any supplies easy, each round table will have five seats. We will do our absolute best to ensure that you are sitting with your group of friends (Jen is a master at this!) however there will be a limit of 5 per table, with no exceptions.
- Meals will include the following: a delicious sweet table on Friday evening, lunch and dinner on Saturday, along with a sweet treat in the evening. We will have a light lunch on Sunday.
