Nearly two weeks ago I held the first of our two annual Stampin’ & Scrappin’ Retreats. They are always a heap of fun and a great opportunity to get away from it all and have unlimited, uninterrupted stamping and scrapping time. From 10:30am Friday until 4pm Sunday we stamped, ate, stamped, laughed and stamped! No cooking, dishes or distractions! I always love sitting back and listening to all the laughter around the room as everyone gets a break from “life”.
I do give a few make and takes on these weekends and this was one of them. We got to play with the new Spiral Rose Big Shot Die to make the flowers to adorn the gift box. The pattern paper came from the new Fresh Prints Paper Stack and we used the Square Framelits to cut the square frame for the top.
I also have a Spiral Flower Class coming up that will cover a variety of techniques to make different flower effects. You may like to check it out HERE.
