2024 Papercrafting Virtual and In-Person Events!

2024 Papercrafting Virtual and In-Person Events!

Hey there, Friends!

With the dawn of the New Year, I'm bursting with excitement to keep you in the loop about what’s ahead in my crafty world. As some of you may know, I work full-time in the hospitality industry, and I spend some of my free time working with my favorite paper crafting companies. I'm honored to be a part of the design teams at Simple Stories, American Crafts, and We R Makers. Additionally, I'm thrilled to collaborate with Pinkfresh Studio and Guia de Manualidades Creative teams, and there's an exciting new dream team on the horizon (stay tuned for more on that)!


Now, I didn’t want to wait any longer to spill the beans on some of the fabulous events I'll be teaching at this year, complete with dates and all the details to help you plan your year ahead. You'll find all the necessary links below, and I'll be updating them as some of these events aren't open for registration yet, but the dates are locked and loaded.


I hope you join me at one (or better yet, all) of these spectacular events:

With love and excitement,


Andrea Lake
