The gorgeous Retreat Card Class projects will feature two new In-Colours and the In Bloom Bundle (pg 45 Jan-Jun 2021 Mini):

To complete and assemble the kits as I did (shown above), you will need the following:


154380 In Bloom stamp set (option to add it on at reduced rate) or you can use your own stamp set to create with the kits I send you and make your own designs.


Pale Papaya
Fresh Freesia 
Smoky Slate (Stamp a Stack only)

The Goodie Bag products will be taking care of your “crafting essentials”. Let it be a surprise!

Choose to add on either or both OPTIONAL CLASSES to extend the crafting fun. You will certainly end up with a great variety of cards for all occasions as well as lots of left over product to use at your own discretion.

+ class kit to make 12 cards, 3 each of 4 different designs

+ Login and password to access this class on Create & Stamp Online Classes website in case you miss the Zoom event.

I know that many of you already own the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, but If you don't have it there is an option to add it on at reduced rate or you can substitute with other sentiments, you own.
