Stampin’ Sisters Retreat Day 1

   This past weekend was our Stampin' Sisters Retreat.  My sister, Tina Rappe, and I started this stamping weekend for our customers 8 years ago.  We have 60 fabulous ladies join us for a full weekend of stamping projects.  This year we designed and prepped 10 projects — actually 10 mini classes — for them to make.  We opened the doors Friday night at 7:00 p.m.  When they got to their table this beautiful bag of goodies was waiting for them.  Check out all the supplies they received.

Goodie bag
One item in their goodie bag was the Banner Blast stamp set.  After welcome hugs and opening greetings we got them started on their first project of the weekend.  They made 6 cards using the Banner Blast stamp set and the coordinating Banner Punch.  
  Banner BlastThese are such clean and crisp cards — I love them even though they aren't embossed.  Sometimes simple is a good thing.

Come back tomorrow to see more of the Stampin' Sisters Retreat fun.


Stampin’ Sisters Retreat 2014

What a great weekend I had.  We just finished up our Stampin' Sisters 2014 Retreat Weekend.  My sister, Tina Rappe, and I had 60 wonderful ladies gathered together for a full weekend of stamping fun.  We started Friday night and stamped all weekend ending at noon Sunday – 10 projects all designed and prepped for these ladies.  Watch my posts over the next couple of days for the projects they made.  Here is a picture of all the wonderful ladies in their Stampin' Sisters Retreat t-shirts — this was just one of the gifts that the ladies received during the weekend.

You could be part of this picture next year!!!



Luck of the Irish – “Oh Happy Day”

March Scrapbook Pages
These are the pages we made at my March Scrap & Go Club.  For March I wanted to bring in St. Patty's Day but tried to stay away from shamrocks and Leprachaun's, so I stayed with the green theme for the month.  I love the Oh Happy Day from the Starburst Sayings stamp set — I thought that was fitting for a Leprachaun to say.
