Welcome Maker Academy Attendees!
Hey Crafter! My name is Jen Swift, and I’m SO glad you’re here. We’re going to have the best time creating together during this event!
If you don’t know me, I’m a little obsessed with both my Cricut and the digital drawing app, Procreate. It’s super simple to use, but I know lots feel intimidated by it, so I’ve made it my mission to show you how easy it is to combine the two to make your own custom craft designs.
And now, I’m SUPER excited (beyond thrilled!) to introduce MY Maker Academy Weekend Workshop below!
ALL the workshops I do are special – but this one feels, well, magical ✨. And in the spirit of the holiday season this project can be both a gift to ourselves, as well as a gift for others.
How? It’s basically a coloring page sticker! So you can color it yourself, or you can give it to someone else to color. And to make it even more gift-y I show you how easy it is to put the sticker (with it’s backing) on a card so it can be pulled off by the receiver.
