Scrapbooking in the South Pacific – Feb 2023

Join Melissa Kennedy, owner Unmistakable Creations (Australian Scrapbook and Craft Cruises) as she shares with you some of her favourite islands and classes on this fun cruise to some of her favourite islands in the South Pacific.  Melissa has worked in the industry for over 30 years and been teaching on these craft cruises since 2009 – minus the past two years where we have been “dry docked”

Also joining her on this cruise is Paige Rohan – owner of Bee Arty Scrapbooking so you will get a mixture of styles and techniques if taking part in the classes.

On this South Pacific cruise you will have the opportunity to participate in classes where you will be spoilt with product but focus on the paper in the collections and how to use to their full capacity.  Mel is not afraid to try something new and she will encourage you to do that also – there are no mistakes – only UNMISTAKABLE and unique creations …. oh and did I mention she loves a LAUGH and to have FUN!!!  The rest of the time the room is yours to use 24/7 if you wish.

We would love to welcome you aboard the QUANTUM OF THE SEAS for this 8 Night adventure to the South Pacific

The first of its class, Quantum of the Seas® is a fully immersive ship filled with revolutionary feats from bow to stern. Think show-stopping entertainment that blends art and music with cutting-edge technology. Thrilling activities that the whole family can enjoy in any weather. And unparalleled views from every room – even Interior staterooms let you scope out the sights in real time from a Virtual Balcony℠.
Are you up for anything - this ship is a game changer  - Its new and exciting and hope you will join me and friends you have met on previous cruisers for a catch up to remember.

After Melissa's fun filled and product packed Welcome and THANK YOU classes you are then free to exploring new techniques and scrapbook to your hearts content in our 24/7 private conference room, with beautiful floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the views along the way.

HOST / Instructor - Melissa Kennedy
As my business name states, we are all unique and unmistakable creations. Made up of everyday life experiences, growing and changing with each new day.

I've been fortunate to have been a part of this Industry for now well over 25 years and as mentioned in my very first blog post on this website, now starting to see how everything learnt along the way is coming together. I have been extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with some big companies within this industry, learn (and still learning many design skills, as well as being an educator in an industry, that has taken me around the world a number of times.  “Are you for real – you seriously cut and paste for a living and travel the world”  (imagine the English accent spoken here) as one guy said to me on an trip overseas…  never really looked at it that way until then and thought – yeah actually I really do…  Now its great to be able to give this same opportunity to other educators in the industry as they join me on some of these cruises.

Along with my love of photography and travel, I am one of the fortunate ones who has been able to turn my hobby into not only a job, but a business. I still laugh when my beautiful girls inform me i don't have a real job.

Love (did i say love) getting my hands dirty, I LOVE PAPER, love exploring new techniques and would say my style evolves depending on the type of projects we are doing.  I'm not afraid to try something new and that is something I try to get across to those in my classes - there are no mistakes - only UNMISTAKABLE and unique creations .... oh did I mention I love to LAUGH and to have FUN!!!

But moreso than anything else on these cruises - I love watching people do something for the first time.  Whether that be a new technique in class or something they have wanted to tick off their bucket list and thought they wouldn't never do.  The belief in themselves that grows with that achievement, the excitement on their faces (yes you can see it) is something that makes the crazy hectic busy times all worthwhile.

Look forward to seeing you on board.

Bee Arty is an Australian owned company that designs and manufactures scrapbooking, card making and paper craft products including Colour Blast mixed media.

Colour Blast is a creative, colourful mixed media product designed to be used along with our wide range of paper, stamps, stencils and dies to make your memories magic. All of our products can be purchased individually or in kit format, on our website or at a stockist near you. 


"Hi, my name is Paige and I am the proud owner of Bee Arty, the home of Colour Blast Australia. I am married to the man of my dreams and have two amazing sons aged 21 and 15. After a long-time playing wife and mother while I decided it was time for me to give something a go so, I bought Colour Blast at the end of 2019.

What a ride it has been especially in 2020.

I love life and don’t take it all too seriously. I love spending time with people as I am a total extrovert and I love to have a good laugh every day.

I have been scrapbooking for ten years and more recently loving to art journal. My style is a bright and funky ‘anything goes’ with lots of mixed media."

You will need to bring along a normal basic scrapbooking tool kit.  Similar to what you would bring to any retreat.

Items to definitely include:

  • craft matt – needs only to be a small A4 mat but something to use with your craft knife.
  • craft knife
  • small scissors (blades to be no longer than 4″)
  • edge distressor
  • adhesives….lots of them  (include tape runners/adhesive tape and glues for embellishments)

Optional Extra’s  (not necessary but certainly helps if you have them

  • mini mister
  • apron
  • baby wipes (to clean up your area and hands) – no taps in the conference room to wash hands.

You will be given kits for each class so its not necessary to bring along other scrapbooking products unless you have something specific in mind you want to work on whilst away.

Closer to the sailing date I will give you photograph requirements which you can either bring from home or cut up white card stock to relevant sizes so you can use on layouts and replace with a real photo when you have a suitable one.

These more details class requirements (if any) will be given out closer to the cruise.
