Ready to get crafty, and go on a virtual getaway while we craft? Let’s do it! To participate you are welcome to join in challenges, attend live events, share your own creations, or just gather inspiration, chat, and have fun! Below is a schedule of events for you to plan around as well as links to the class kit if you’d like one, and more!
Prize info: I’ll be drawing at random winners all event long (and posting them at the bottom of this page with info to claim). How do you enter to win? Leave a comment on ANY of my live videos, or pre-recorded videos on Facebook, YouTube, or Instagram that are posted before May 2. Re-post or mention (with a tag to my FB or IG!) this event on your own page/channel. Or, enter one of the below challenges…
Challenges: You’re welcome to create any type of project you like, and post (or don’t!) wherever you like. To be entered for random prize draws post by the 2nd of May in some way that I can see. Facebook group, to your instagram and tag me, or even email me a photo!
Challenge #1: Find a project you need to finish, and do so! Could be big or small, absolutely any project that you have. This could also be a kit or class that you signed up for – make something from it!
Challenge #2: “self care” This could be doing something nice for yourself (pedicure, maybe some reading time!), time in your art journal, or setting aside time for a project you normally set aside. This could even be simply an hour to scrapbook – whatever self care looks like to you.
Challenge #3: Share a scrapbook page you made in the past – Got a favorite old page? Sentimental all time fave? Do share!
Challenge #4: Let’s bust that stash! Pick THREE items (yep, three!) to craft with that you’ve never used before. Could be new paper, stickers, new technique… get ’em used and tell us what you utilized.
Challenge #5: A hint of elegance. Use our theme (chateau getaway) and come up with something with an elegant floral, lace, gems or pearls perhaps? Even tea stain, or of an elegant event would work!
Facebook Lives will broadcast here, and after be saved as well.
For this event, I was inspired by some vacation research that made me realize that some grand estates, castles, even chateaus are available to stay in – some as hotels! Wouldn’t that be fun?
My inspiration from all of that are the finer things (think pearls, lace, doilies, cursive writing…) as well as beautiful florals, garden themes, and other such loveliness. You can find more ideas on the pinterest board linked above.
Want to chat and join in more? On instagram be sure to tag @craftwithmay and on Facebook feel free to share in the group! Have questions? You can always email me firstname.lastname@example.org
