Announcing Up North Stamp-a-Stack Online Retreat!

It’s fun to visit different regions of the world and without leaving your home is a bonus! I am partnering with Elizabeth Green from Canada to bring you an Up North Online Retreat featuring the Snowflake Splendor Suite. Can you identify our rolled o’s during our presentations? Since we are both from Up North, I can hear the Up North accent during video playback. I don’t think I sound like that in person:)

We have decided on a Stamp-a-Stack theme to get the most out of shipping costs. The snowflake designs can be used for many different occasions too: thank you, thinking of you, birthday, winter holiday greetings and just because! Your retreat includes 40 make-n-take packets, 10 each of the 4 designs shown in the photos below, a pillow gift and thank you note.

After the retreat is over, a pdf tutorial of all the make-n-take projects and the bonus, surprise demonstration will be emailed to you so you will have all the dimensions and supplies used to recreate the projects in your stamp space.

Please Note: you will need to use your own stamps, inks, adhesives, dies and embossing folders to finish the kits. The snowflake die cut shapes are not included but the paper for you to cut the shapes is included. Links are below to order these additional products.

Content will be broadcast via Youtube, Zoom and a private Facebook group. Please make sure you can access Zoom and join the private Facebook group for the best experience. The Zoom link will be sent a few days prior to the event. An invitation to join the private Facebook group will be sent once your registration has been paid. If you can only access Youtube and have an email address to send the pdf tutorials to, you are still welcome to join us!

Day or Weekend in the Country Retreats

Sometimes, you just need to take a day in the country for yourself. Enjoy the crisp, country air and sights around the pond at Cattail Retreats. Partake in good foods and get as little sleep as you want to. It’s ok, you can craft the night away!

Here is the view from the craft room…the bright light in the greenery is the pond which changes with each season. Work on your favorite crafting projects while you spread out on your own table.
