One Day Craft Retreat - Saturday, September 28

 Here are the pictures from my first-ever One Day Crafting Retreat 
that was held down at the new Gathering Inkspiration Stamp Studio on Saturday, September 28!!

This first picture is of the Goody Bag!!  I included lots of fun embellishments like.....

Witches Brew Washi Tape
Real Red 1/4" Stitched Grograin Ribbon
Pretty Presents Designer Tags
Linen Thread
Snail Adhesive

All together, this fun goody bag was valued at almost $34.00!!

And, we got to use all of these products in the Make-n-Takes on Saturday as well!!

Here's a picture of the set-up at each person's table.  I included a Stampin' Up Grid/work paper for each person, a trash bag, a ticket for the raffle drawing I am having this month (I'm giving away the Christmas Collectibles bundle!!) and their first pillow gift!!

Here's a close-up of the pillow gift.  I got this idea from Ronda Wade.  It's a cute sunflower!!  The flower is made using the Floral Frames Framelit die, then I embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Next, you add some Early Espresso 1/4" Stitched Grograin Ribbon to a Sweet Treat Cup and attach it to the flower.  Lastly, I punched a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch and punched the center out of that using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch (it's actually easier to do these steps in the reverse order of what I just said here!).
