One Day Crafting Retreat

 

Hi Everyone!!


We held our One Day Crafting Retreat earlier this month!!  


It was so much fun!!!.... Finally being able to gather again and craft, socialize and just BE together :).



This is what their table space looked like when they arrived for the day.  


Included in their goody bag was a full package of the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper, a full bolt of the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon, a package of Brushed Brass Butterflies and 2 yards of the Evening Evergreen Windowpane Check Ribbon.


They also received a fun treat box filled with a yummy cookie from our local Cindy Lou's Sweet Creations!!


Here's a closer look at the treat box......





These boxes are super-simple to make!!


-I started with an 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Pool Party card stock and then scored it at 2 1/2" on all 4 sides. 

-Next, cut up along two opposite sides of the score marks to the intersecting score marks.

-Add adhesive to all 4 outside flaps, then fold them in and adhere to the middle flap on each side to create the box.

Simply Scored Scoring Tool  122334





To create the lid....


--I started with a 6" x 6" piece of Flowering Fields DSP and then scored it at 1 1/8" on all 4 sides. 

-Next, cut up along two opposite sides of the score marks to the intersecting score marks.

-Add adhesive to all 4 outside flaps, then fold them in and adhere to the middle flap on each side to create the lid.

Next, stamp "You are wonderful in every way" in Poppy Parade ink on Basic White card stock using the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set.


Die-cut this piece, along with the Poppy Parade tag behind it, using the Tailor Made Tags Dies.  Adhere them together and add to the box with Dimensionals.

Finally, tie a Pool Party Sheer Ribbon bow and add to the sentiment, along with a Pool Party Glossy Dot.

Here's a peak at what everyone received just for signing up for the day.......


the treat box, 4 make-n-takes and the yummy chocolate bar wrapped in Flowering Fields DSP  :).





Here are a couple of pics of the setup before everyone arrived.....  LOTS of great light and room to spread out!








One of my favorite things to do is offer a Buy One, Get One Free Sale at the retreat!!

It's a fun way to spoil everyone that comes for the day :).











And... just a couple of action shots from the day :). 

I forgot to take more pics... I ALWAYS seem to do that!!






This is my good friend, Stacey, making some cute treats for Lilly's Graduation Open House :).









I think everyone had a great time!!


I can't WAIT to do this again in the Fall!!!

I'll let you know as soon as we've decided on the date!!


I hope you were Inkspired today :).
