Fairy-themed "Inspire! New England Paper Crafts" Cre8time Event comes to the Seacoast

Hello, Gorgeouses!

We had a terrific time at Wentworth-Coolidge Center for the Arts at Drift Gallery, located at the Wentworth-Coolidge Historic Mansion in Portsmouth, NH, this past weekend.

Ali Goodwin, curator of the gallery, invited the "Inspire! New England Paper Crafts" Cre8time Team to host a Fairy House Tour "Creative After-Party."  The event was designed to coincide with the renowned Annual Portsmouth Fairy House Tour that takes place in historic Portsmouth at the Gov. John Langdon House, Stawbery Banke and Pierce Island.

Three paper crafting projects were prepared specifically for attendees of the "Creative After-Party" to fashion their own personalized mementos of their day at the Portsmouth Fairy House Tour: picture frame, paper dolls and note card.  Find out more details leading up to the event HERE.

In anticipation of the event, Susan and I created a couple of videos (HERE) and (HERE) to present the latest introductions in paper crafting to the Seacoast, including:

We're prepped and ready to GO!

 Our first attendees dove right into the fun, stamping with Memento Ink and using Susan Tierney-Cockburn's coordinating stamps and die cuts by Sizzix ~

Using water brushes with Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils worked beautifully with the Memento-stamped fairy images ~ 

 Our little friend had much success die-cutting Susan Tierney-Cockburn's fairy paper doll pieces - all the pieces of the doll are combined in ONE die!  All that was needed was to joint the pieces of the creation together were the 4mm brads by the Eyelet Outlet ~

Our guests went on their merry way with a bag FULL of fairy-themed mementos that they were able to create and personalize all by themselves ~

Check out the images of us at Portsmouth Fairy House Tour the following day:

New England Paper Crafts" Cre8time Team to bring custom-designed "Cre8te and Take" projects to your event, please contact me for details.  It's a creative way to engage your customers and attendees, and have them leaving with warm smiles and accomplishment!

Craft On, Laurel
