Our First CRAFT Project we go!

We've met with all our instructors, planned our fantastic classes, so here we go with loads of great information for you to get you psyched to come to CRAFT.

If you've already registered, make sure to check your email for a couple of surveys to get some details from you to make sure CRAFT is the best crafting event you'll attend.

First Project Tease
(not a real sneak's coming!)

The adorable Ly T. Le (designer, mixed-media artist and owner of Lytle Scrapper) will have you enthralled with a project called 'Free Your Heart'.

This mixed media project will integrate wonderful products from FOUR sponsors soon to be announced, and will give you the opportunity to learn exciting paint, ink and transfer techniques while creating a piece of highly dimensional art that will explore what makes you feel free, and when you don't.

The teaser photo has some snippets of supplies you'll be using...who can identify some of them?

Make sure to sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of the right sidebar for our weekly CRAFT newsletter, and make sure to add us to your reader, or come on back every day or so for updates, starting with teasers, going to sneak peeks and then project photos! We'll also be highlighting all of our wonderful sponsors (the list is growing) and will have more details about the extra fun we're planning.


SFTIO’s trademarked and industry-exclusive approach to artistic motivation is the heart and soul of what makes us unique. Our monthly inspiration page with hand-selected music, stock photography, quotations and deep journaling prompts elevates scrapbooking to an expressive art form where members are guided to truly explore their inner worlds. Click here for links to our past Inspiration Pages to see!

We raise the bar even more by providing challenges using the prompts that add a design twist, teaching and learning with our members to use ‘visual journaling’ – powerful symbolism – to combine right and left brain expression. The result? Meaningful, rich, pages and projects that reflect all of who you are, Inside and Out.

Each of our workshops at CRAFT will incorporate a variety of our tested, proven multimedia inspiration tools combined with the special talents and techniques of our stellar teaching staff. We’ll begin and end each workshop with discussion and sharing, supported by our resident Art Therapist Rita Coufal, PhD.

Growth is a journey…not a destination. And it’s a most personal one…only you know what you need out of this experience. In the intimate, supportive setting we’ve created for you, you’ll have the opportunity to practice being more and more yourself. Our take on scrapbooking and creativity isn’t about a quick fix, or a set of ‘positive thinking’ reminders. It’s about a deeper approach, telling your truth – pretty or not, looking at both sides of the coin, and leaving our weekend together with the creative skills and tools to be more fully expressed in your life.

While you’ll be learning amazing techniques, styles, tips and techniques in every workshop, these are not cookie-cutter sessions – you’ll be challenged to dig deep, learn about yourself and tailor your project to reflect who you are and who you want to be.

Come on in and Renew and Transform with us!
