While this retreat is organized for you to escape to bring your own supplies and to have time to create, I have optional classes in the works and will provide all three days of the retreat. 

  • With the very recent release of the Occasions Catalog, class projects are still in the creation mode and will be given to you on a separate registration. I have included a listing of what I am working on, and some of the Stampin' Up! kits are offered to purchase on this registration. If a class option sounds like it might interest you, just mark you are interested. 
  • At the retreat, I will have Retired Designer Series Paper available for purchase.


There will be plenty of card ideas and inspiration along with scrapbook layouts.


Thank you for your interest in the Spring Retreat.  I hope you will join us in the beautiful North Carolina Mountains. If you have any questions, please let me know. The best way to get a hold of me is by text.

My cell phone is 704-617-2817. Leave a text or voicemail and I will text or call you back when I can.  Thank you.
