Plan, Prep & Play

Enrolling now


Plan, Prep & Play is here to help you set yourself up for success as you dive into crafting in the new year. In this class, we are going to explore goal setting and project planning specifically for memory keepers, discussing and applying various techniques that are adaptable to a variety of lifestyles and crafting approaches. You do not need to be a self-proclaimed “Type A” personality to participate in this class; instead, this class is designed to help you find a system of project planning that works for you. We are going to learn techniques and tips for how to select projects, break them down into actionable steps, and celebrate following through on our intentions. 

Among other things, we are going to tackle craft organization, turning inspiration into projects, and other barriers (such as nonstop scrolling) that crafters face in getting their ideas on paper. While the primary focus of this class is on planning and prepping our projects, this class also includes a lot of opportunities and tips to see those plans come to life. In addition to detailed planning steps, worksheets, and tips, this class includes plenty of project examples and process videos. This class is designed to help you accomplish your crafting goals while having fun, I hope to see you in the classroom!
