Stampin’ Sisters Retreat: We’re so “Plaid” you’re here!

Over the past weekend my sister Peggy and I held our 14th Annual Stampin’ Sisters Retreat.  We design 8 full class projects for everyone to create throughout the entire weekend.  Each year we create a theme for the event and this year it was all about buffalo check plaid, from our shirts, to our slippers, and ear rings and even our nails.  Here’s the sign I made to welcome everyone.

Our front table was adorned with lots of little gifts and surprises for our guests.

Here is the room that we called home for the weekend, right before we opened the doors to our 92 stampers.

Everyone who paid their full retreat fee in one lump sum payment received this decorated envelope which held a package of the Noble Peacock Rhinestone Jewels.

We recognized all of our team members that attended.

They each received this Stampin’ Chalk Marker, which of course, was decorated in cute buffalo check packaging.

This year we had 18 guests that attended for their first time… we call them “Newbies”


Because our motto is “Enjoy life…Stamp something and eat chocolate!”. we gave them each a piece of chocolate perched in  it’s own special packaging.

The last recognition was for our “All-timers”  that is those individuals that have attended every single Stampin’ Sisters Retreat.  Alona & Tammy were honored for their loyalty and support of our business and received a package of lace trim.

Keeping with the buffalo check plaid theme, everyone received this tote bag, which was a huge hit.  Not only is it super cute, but it’s an insulated cooler bag with a bottle opener.

Each bag held the project kits for all 8 classes as well as the Happy Birthday to You stamp set, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals, and Tear & Tape.

Throughout this week and next week I’ll be sharing all of the projects we made as well as the card contest winners and more.  I hope you’ll come back to see it all!
