Jessie's Neat 'Nique Free Event

Our wonderful Jessie Hurley is a wealth of stamping technique information.  She will be sharing some of her techniques during this free fun event.  You don't need to bring anything with you.  However, I find that she has so many helpful hints that I bring a pad of paper with me to jot them down to try at home later.  You won't want to miss it!

Another Ol' Favourite - The Wood Mount Game

I have to admit, this is my favourite free event we do for Sailing with Scissors.  All you need is a medium (or larger) wood mount stamp that is new or slightly used.  During the game, your stamp will be shuffled around until it ends up in a happy stamper's good home.  At the same time, you receive a different stamp that will get those creative juices flowing when you return home.
I received a really cool retro snowflake stamp last year that I'm using on my Christmas cards this year.  You can see the stamp in the middle of the picture.  I love it.

New! Treasure Hunt - Free Fun Event

Ahoy There!
Our fabulous travel agent, Donna Athey had a great idea...let's do a Treasure Hunt aboard the Celebrity Century.  You will get to know your ship as well as your other Sailing with Scissors friends.  We will be meeting in Michael's Lounge (I still laugh at the name!  Perfect for us stampers) the day we board on Sunday August 17 at 2 PM for a fun Meet and Greet.  This is also when Donna hands out the question sheet.  You will be finding out fun facts or gathering cool trinkets throughout the week.  Once you have all the cool stuff, and correct answers, show Donna, Jessie or myself and your name will be entered for a draw at dinner on Saturday night.
Sound like fun?  Yes it is!  Just remember to sign up for a minimum of two card classes to join in the fun.

Old Favourite - Card Swap - Free Event

We are doing it again.  The Card Swap is a favourite event among past guests of Sailing with Scissors.  You make several identical cards to swap with Sailing with Scissors members.  Generally, you need about 25 cards.  However, as we get closer to the sailing date, we'll post the number of cards for you will need for the swap.  Don't worry if you are new to card making.  Simple cards, complicated cards, bright coloured cards, monochromatic cards, masculine cards, or feminine cards are all welcome.  If you look at the card swap posts from our previous cruises, you will see all the types of cards.  If you wish, on the back of the card, please place a post-it-note with your contact information so that the recipient knows who made what card.
You don't need to include an envelope but it's a nice touch.
Just remember to sign up for a minimum of two card classes to participate in this, and the other, free events.
