About 5 years ago, I took an awesome cardmaking class that was taught by Jessie Hurley. Her technique based classes are well known in the Vancouver area. I told Jessie that I had been searching for cruises that weren't scrapbook related, but focused on making handmade cards. Since I couldn't find any such vacation, I suggested that Jessie, and her store Cherish the Thought, host this type of group. She said that she would do it, if I would be the co-organizer. I agreed and Sailing With Scissors was born.
Donna and I used to work together at Cruiseshipcenters and I knew that she had hosted quilting cruises so she knew the right questions to ask, and the right people to talk to, regarding a cardmaking group.
Besides, she is a cardmaker too!
Here is your Sailing with Scissors Team:

Lastly, here is me, Celina Loyer. I write the blog and write the daily cardmaking technique newsletters that you receive on the cruise. I organize the free events on the ship: the wood mount game, the make n' take and the card swap. Just call me the assistant!
We are your Sailing with Scissors Team!
