Dolce Spring Retreat Highlights

The 2016 Dolce Spring Retreat was a great success this past weekend. My studio was open all day and into the evening for crafters to come stamp and relax. I offer 4 projects for guests to create. They can pick their favorites to create and can make as many (or as few) as they like.

I love to put on this event and plan all of the details. I hope my customers leave feeling inspired and loved.

Each year I always tell myself that I am going to take more photographs to share with you. And each year I get so caught up in the event that I completely forget! Here are a few that I remembered to snap before all of my guests arrived.

A new addition to the event this year was the Swag Bag. Each guest received one of these cute little totes. Inside was Stampin' Up! products from the current Spring Stampin' Up! Catalogue. I tucked a little chocolate treat in the front pocket and added a handmade tag. The girls love these gifts!

I have this event each April and another in November. These are the two days of the year that my craft room is guaranteed to be clean! I have all of my tools lined up and ready for my guests to use. (Yes, I have three Big Shot machines! Saves waiting time).

I put a lot of love into preparing all of the project kits that are offered. All materials are cut and bundled for my guests. I have color PDF tutorials that I email to them prior to the event. This way they have copies if they ever want to create more in the future.

The food, treats and candy were out all day for everyone to enjoy. The biggest hit this year must have been warm nachos out of the oven with the trimmings. I think I gained 5 pounds by the time the day was over!

The day always goes by so quickly with all of the chatting, creating and eating. (I personally managed to create one card all day long).

Today I added the four project tutorials to my page for purchase. Click over and purchase the PDF's and you can create these projects at home!

If you live in Canada and would like to receive these project kits, with all of the materials prepared, I am happy to ship them to you! Click here to see each project kit cost. (Additional shipping charges will be applied. Contact me for more details. Kit availability is while supplies last).

Are you sad that you missed all of the Stampin' Dolce fun?? Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 19, 2016!!!

Have a creative day!
