Stamped with Joy Holiday Retreat Highlights

I'm about a week late getting this posted, but I wanted to share all of the fun we had a week ago at my Stamped with Joy Holiday Retreat!

I had 17 awesome stampers here and we had such a great time!  We began the retreat with a stamp-a-stack on Friday night, where they each made 12 different cards, all featuring products from the Holiday Catalog.

When they arrived on Friday evening, they each received a bag filled with supply packets for the weekend.

Also, at each place they had a fun "swag bag" filled with lots of new accessories from the Holiday Catalog, along with a cute little treat box filled with chocolate.  What's a stamping retreat without chocolate, right??

I realized after the event, that I never took a good picture of the swag bag, but you can see them in the back of this photo.

This little box is made with the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes and decorated with the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  The leaves were cut out using the Seasonal Layers Framelits from the Annual Catalog.  The "Enjoy" is from the Tags & Trimmings stamp set from the Holiday Catalog. 

On Saturday morning when they arrived, they received another little treat box.  This one had a Little Debbie pumpkin frosted brownie in it.  Yum!

We spent the whole day together on Saturday making 6 different 3D holiday projects, with a break for lunch, catered by Cowboy Chicken.

I can't take credit for all of these project ideas.  I am very often inspired by other demonstrator's projects.  I have to give a shout out to my friend,  Mary Fish of stampinpretty.com for the The Mini Pizza box with mini note cards  idea.  I didn't even change it much because I loved it so much.  Thanks Mary!  And for the beautiful star home decor piece, I wish I could give a shout out by name to the demonstrator who I copied it from, but I have searched and searched to find her name but can't find it now, but I saw it on a demonstrator facebook group.  Thank you!!

Well, this post is awfully long, so it's time to quit, but I do want to say a huge THANKS to everyone who attended the retreat!  Such a fun weekend with my stamping friends!
