Creativity is Calling Retreat

Hey everyone!

Thanks for joining me today!  I know this post is a bit late but things are so busy here in the Stamp-Patty’s studio helping so many people get ready for their holiday season!  Hard at work designing, cutting, prepping for holiday cards, home decor, scrapbooks, etc.  Today I want to share a recap of the Stamp-Patty’s Creative Escape Weekend that I held in September!  Caution….lots of photos to share!


Getting Ready

To say I was loaded to the gills is an understatement!  This is just one of several vehicles that we had packed to the roof with project materials, give aways, gifts, and more!  Off we go to our little crafting retreat!

Loaded up and ready to roll!

Prize Patrols


It was so awesome to see smiles from the guests that earned prize patrols!  Prizes ranged from paper stackes to embossing folders and framelits!

Crafting the Weekend Away


Mom, daughter and BFF Creating away!








Our weekend away allowed the attendees to craft the weekend away!  No time limits, no one demanding of their time, no where else to be!  This trio came to the event prepared to craft the weekend away!  Between the three of them, they completed more than 1,000 cards!!!  Tammy, on the right, even did a technique tutorial for us!  See the video and finished cards below!
