Simon Says Stamp CREATE Event!

The amazing Simon Says Stamp CREATE event was held this past weekend in Columbus Ohio! Visitors came in from around the world to join the creative adventure! We started out early Friday morning when the first guest lined up for registration at 5:45am! That’s some crafty dedication!  Our classes started at 9:30 am sharp Friday morning and ended at 9pm Saturday evening!

There was laughter…lot’s of it!!! Creativity wasn’t lacking as students had a total of 15 hours of class time! Friendships were made as everyone came together for the same cause… to CREATE and to enjoy special moments!

We would like to thank all who attended, including our students, volunteers, Simon staff, demonstrators, instructors and especially Heidi and Jason for holding such a great event!

  16. I can’t add anything to what others have said — just loved teh entire weekend even though I’ve never been so EXHAUSTED by crafting in my life! The instructors really took us out of our creative boxes and inspired us to explore and I LOVED it.

    Yes,,, You HAVE to do it again! Heck, after having had a chance to rest up, I think even I would sign up again!

  17. Looks and sounds like a PARTY! How about doing one on the West Coast – Orange County, Anaheim, Los Angeles or San Diego. I’ll be sure to come.

  18. Thanks for a great weekend! It was tons of fun! Please do it again next year and have Tim do a class on tags! That would be so cool! Many thanks to the instructors, Heidi and Jason, and all the SSS team!

Thank you so much! And a big thank you to Heidi for making it happen! Please have another and another and let me sign up now! :-)

  20. I cannot say enough good about the incredible weekend I spent at Create. I had a wonderful time and am ready to go again next year. I loved letting my imagination run wild and getting messy with my creations in the classes. The shopping was great (maybe a little too great) It was well organized which was amazing considering the time it was put together and that it was the first year. What I loved best though was the people. It was nice sitting in the same spot because we really got to know the people around us. The staff and all the helpers couldn’t have been any nicer or more helpful. Finally the teachers were fantastic. You could tell they loved what they were doing and were enthused to be sharing. Thanks to everyone who made this event happen.

  21. I can’t even begin to put into words how wonderful CREATE 2014 was! I just know how fortunate I felt to be at this inaugural (annual, please) event. :)

    Thank you Heidi, Simon Says staff, volunteers, my fellow crafters, and our amazing teachers for an experience that was beyond my wildest dreams!

  22. What a fun weekend! Thanks to each and everyone of you who made it possible! I linked up as I sharing some of the projects and fun on my blog today. I think so many will want to be part of this event next year!
