Locals Night Out - St. George Utah

The St. George retreat was amazing!  
Wonderful women, lots of crafting and shopping and new friendships formed!  

Thanks to all the ladies who attended and made our weekend a success!

First, we were lucky to spend Thursday evening with some talented & beautiful 
women of St. George!  These ladies were so much fun and crafting pros!  They were excited to learn about the new CriCut Explore and to see what this machine could do!  They made beautiful banners, ate a yummy dinner and crafted the night away...it was a very good evening indeed!

A special thanks to our amazing sponsors!!

After dinner the ladies got down to crafting using My Mind's Eye Papers, Embellishments & Washy Tape from the "Lost & Found" Collection by Jen Allyson aka "The Project Girl" on Instagram

  These girls were a talented bunch and created so many beautiful banners! 

We were lucky to have our own personal Cricut Designer, Shanon Henderson with us to teach us all how to use the newly released Cricut Explore!   One lucky attendee was the winner of a new machine!

Can you tell by the pictures who won the new Cricut Explore???  Pam is a very lucky girl!

Shanon did an amazing job of teaching all of the new Cricut Explore's features!

She demonstrated and cut lots of birds, hearts, cupids and other shapes to add to our banners

Shannon Lavery of the Reclaimologists & Other Crafty Chicks and
Christine Ishmael of Vintage Yard Sale Utah were the hosts at this retreat!

Local's crafters showed their mad skills

Well fed crafters are happy crafters!

Cheesin for the camera!

The Cricut Explore makes so many amazing things!

The paper & embellishments provided by My Minds Eye were gorgeous!  There was glitter everywhere but it's not a true craft night unless glitter is involved!
We all loved the "Lost & Found Record It" collection designed by Jen Allyson!

This little pirate themed banner was adorable!  
The pirate saying was written with the pen tool on the Cricut Explore!

Ribbon stash provided by Hobby Lobby

These beautiful flowers were cut by the Cricut Explore, aren't they gorgeous?

Amazing results!
