Good morning everyone! Welcome to the CIJ #craftparty here on the CIJ blog! We wanted a way to party with all of our team mates and followers around the globe, so we took this party virtual. Besides, what better way to attend classes, get swag bags, and win prizes than from the comfort of your couch?
This year’s theme is Recapture Your Photographs, so that’s what we’re going to do; get them off your camera, hard drive, phone, wherever you have them stashed and out where people can see them!
We’ll be having new classes posted all day for your crafting convenience and excitement! Here’s the schedule (all times in Eastern Standard Time) :
9am – Making a Patchwork Paper Shadowbox by Jennifer from CaffeinatedPapercuts
11am – Adding Crochet to your Photographs by Jessica from CrochetNature
1pm – Handmade Coasters by Jennifer from CaffeinatedPapercuts
3pm – Decorate Your Tree with Photo Ornaments by Ida from HerterCrochetDesigns
5pm – Altered Picture Frame by Jennifer from CaffeinatedPapercuts
Let’s face it, besides the food and the friends, the best part of the party is the goodie bag! We’ve pulled together a fun download bundle of projects and printables as a ‘thank you’ for stopping by today. Click here for your Swag Bag!
Tell Your Friends!
The official hashtag for this year’s party is #craftparty and if you’re partying with us today, we’d love to see! Be sure to tweet, Instagram, and/or Facebook us your projects. Go on, show off your crafty self!
