Off to Retreat ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Just a quick post to update you … I’m heading off to our Annual Spring Stampin’ Retreat!

The cards are designed, cut, prepped, tucked in envelopes and nicely packed into “session bags” … that way they just pull out the back with their supplies and they don’t have to fumble threw a bunch of projects.

This is the house we will be staying in!  Looks like we’re in for a beautiful weekend … I will try to keep you posted (NO WIFI) only in the Internet Cafe and it would not be too polite of me to be hiding away from my guests.  Hopefully during a break.

Till then … have a good weekend!!


2017 Annual Spring Stampin’ Retreat: Welcome

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I thought you might enjoy a closer look at our annual stampin’ retreats. Each year I host 2 retreats, one in the spring and one in the fall.

Our retreats were created with our stampin’ friends in mind … A true retreat, a fun and relaxing get-a-way! The lodging, food for the entire stay, and all the projects are included in your price.

The cards/ projects are all cut and ready for you … except for a few minor exceptions where we are teaching a new fold or technique.

So sit back and join me as I take you through some of our retreat. All this week I will be sharing pics of the retreat and some of the awesome swap cards that our guests made!!

This is just a shot of the decorations / welcome on the fireplace mantle …

Each of the boxes were hand made by me and the help of my granddaughter Katara. We used the Window Box Thinlits Dies along with the Tasty Treats Designer Series paper. These cute little boxes decorate the dining room until it is time to go home … then each guest gets to take one home!

On Friday night after a dinner of soups and salad … we gathered to stamp.  We tried out a new stamping area this spring and it is bigger than our last and much brighter as it has windows surrounding us on three sides! It didn’t take us long to get comfortable in here. (Wish I would have taken some extra photos … next time!)

Our cards and project were centered around the Window Shopping Bundle which features the Window Box Thinlits dies we used for the mantle gifts. This session showed them different ways to use the die pieces to create cards!

Here is a “close up” picture of our project …

We used the “Blushing Bride” glimmer paper along with the doilies (sold out) and the Falling in Love embellishments.

It was a fun evening of stamping. When the guests retired for the evening, they found a “pillow gift” containing a package of the Blushing Bride glimmer paper, the Falling in Love embellishments and the Enamel Shapes (you’ll see why tomorrow!)

Hope you enjoyed our Friday evening as much as we did.  It is a pleasure to stamp with such a wonderful group of ladies.

Thanks for stopping by today …

I hope yours is a good one!
