Summer is nearly over, so it’s time to start thinking and planning classes and retreats over the next few months. To start with, here are details of the September and October all day retreats. If you are interested in having a whole day of crafting me time then these retreats are for you.

29 September – Country Lane Suite cards and gifts

Country Lane one of the forthcoming retreats - 29 September


At this all day retreat we will be using products from the Country Lane Suite (pages 42-43 from the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue). The all day retreat will provide you with the opportunity to make cards and gifts. What’s more, you will be able to make even more at home because all the written instructions for each project are provided.

Your kit, designed by me, will include the fabulous Country Home photopolymer stamp set, Country Lane Designer Series Paper and other elements from the suite. Of course coordinating cardstock is included too.

The retreat costs £55 and you will have the use of my ink and dies as necessary. Tea/Coffee/Biscuits and lunch are also included. Please advice of any dietary requirements at the time of booking.

Should you wish to purchase the coordinating Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder please add a further £9.25.

                                         Booking closes on 15 September and full payment is required by then.

27 October – Christmas Stamp-a-stack using the Tags & Tidings stamp set

Tags & Tidings Stamp-a-Stack one of the forthcoming retreats

Join me for the second (and last) Christmas Stamp-a-Stack of 2018. This all day retreat  provides you with the opportunity to make 15 Christmas Cards (3 each of 5 different designs) along with 15 coordinating Gift Tags.

Your kit,designed by me, will include the ever-so cute Tags & Tidings photopolymer stamp set, envelopes, pre-cut cardstock and paper (half a pack of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (DSP)) together with any other embellishments to make the 15 cards and the 15 tags.

The day retreat costs £55 and you will have the use of my ink and dies as necessary.

Tea/Coffee/Biscuits and lunch are included. Please advice of any dietary requirements at the time of booking.

Should you wish to purchase the coordinating Christmas Tags Thinlits Die please add a further £21.75 (this is the difference in the bundle price so you save money).

                                             Booking and payment is required by 13 October.

My retreats are popular and space is limited to 10 people. If you are interested in coming along to either of them please email me at to check that there is a place still available. Payment can then be made via Bank Transfer or PayPal, details of which will be provided at that time.

Retreat Kits

Live in the UK, but can’t make it to the retreat(s) in person? Kits for each of the retreats are available for purchase. You will receive the same kit as attendees (including any table gift). The cost is £55 per kit and it will be available for collection or I will post it to you, the Monday after the day of the retreat.

You will have to use your own ink to complete the cards and other projects, but all the necessary die-cutting, punching or embossing will have been done for you.

The closing date for ordering your kit is the same date as the closing date for attendees. Payment options are also the same as those for attendees.

Any questions please let me know.

Happy stamping.
