Post Retreat…

Wow! The Autumn Papercraft Retreat was this past weekend and it was fantastic. It is so wonderful to see all of our returning guests and greet our new ones. What started out as being a challenge to create a high end  retreat has turned into something I never imagined…. the chance to develop friendships with wonderful women – all different and unique and so very talented. (and funny too) We feel truly blessed.

Tonight I have a tin that coordinates with the shadowbox cards from the last post. I used the Creative Memories Jewel Christmas Power Palette Kit, Winter Wonderland Max Kit, Tag Maker and Brown Swirly ABC/123 Stickers (which are hidden in this photo)

Now it’s time to start designing some Christmas cards and holiday favor boxes 🙂 I LOVE this time of year.

Thanks for stopping by!

So today I have a quick clear pillow box, with some mini treats all wrapped up in Creative Memories 12×12 Primary Autumn Power™ Palette Additions paper , tag maker and sticker- I just added a pop dot and some ribbon ad voila, done!
