It’s Stampin’ Sisters Retreat Weekend!!!!

WooHoo — it's finally here, Stampin' Sisters Retreat Weekend.  My sister, Tina Rappe and I host a full weekend full of stamping.  We have 60 wonderful ladies attending this year.  We begin at 7:00 p.m. tonight and go until noon on Sunday.  We have 8 fabulous projects designed and prepped for them to make.  I can't show you any pictures yet but stay tuned next week as I show you all the fun.  Like my Stamp with Peggy facebook page and follow the fun throughout the weekend.  I will post a few pictures as we go along.

Here's the group picture from last year. 

GroupThe t-shirts they are all wearing was one of their "pillow gifts".  Each day we leave a little gift at their table spot.  Hmmm…what will their gifts be this year.  Come back next week and see.

Getting Carried Away

Carried AwayThis card cracks me up.  That fun little bird is from a Hostess Exclusive stamp set called Time to Celebrate.  There are words that can be mixed and matched.  Hostess Exclusive means you have to hostess a private class — you can use your hostess dollars to purchase this stamp set.

The base of the card is Sahara Sand with a layer of the great Best Year Ever DSP.  The bird was colored with So Saffron and Calpyso Coral ink.

Wisteria Butterfly


The Butterfly Basics stamp set has become a favorite of lots of my stampers.
Wisteria Butterfly Collage
My Stamp & Go Club members loved this card at class the lasts two nights, but they did think it was a bit challenging.  This was a card I saw at a Shoebox Swap in January.  I love everything about this card.  I haven't used Elegant Eggplant in for ever.  The base of the card is Wisteria Wonder with a layer of Elegant Eggplant and then Shimmery White.

I don't know who designed this card but they did a fabulous job.  I made my card almost the same — I tweaked just a couple of things.

Give it a try — it really isn't that difficult — just lots of stamping.
