Join crafting friends from around HRM and beyond (we have an at-home option available for those unable to attend in-person) at our Spring Crafters Retreat. We have put together an amazing $95 kit of colourful new supplies, featuring all the new Stampin' Up! In Colors, for you to create with.

You will use these supplies along with printed instruction sheets to create each of the 10 suggested projects we have included. Of course you are free to use our ideas and measurements as inspiration, and use your box of supplies to create whatever you like. There is more than enough product to create about 40 different projects, depending on what you use - we want you to express your own creativity.  Work together with other attendees or on your own.  We will be on hand to assist and guide you along the way.

Doors open at 9AM. The church is centrally located on Hammonds Plains Road right across from Hatfield Farms. This bright, open space is wheelchair accessible, and there is plenty of parking in the rear and along the sides. 

Total cost of the retreat, either in person on May 21 at the church, or shipped anywhere in Canada in a box for you to do at home, is $149.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
  • You will have your own dedicated table space to work at - tables will be grouped together in blocks of up-to 6 participants, so you can craft with your friends or make new friends.
  • Many pre-prepared supplies are contained in your kits to create the suggested projects, so there will be no shared tool stations or lineups to use them, but you may wish to bring along your own die-cut embossing machine, dies, stamps, embossing folders and paper trimmer in case you want to modify something to your liking, or make additional projects from the supplies in your kit.
  • INK IS PROVIDED in your kit!  You will receive ALL 5 NEW In Color inks as mini ink-spots, but please bring your own blocks, shammy/wipes, bone folders, and any other basic tools you may want - including other inks if you so desire.
  • In an effort to keep the price low while still providing you with a kit filled with beautiful supplies, a STAMP SET HAS NOT BEEN INCLUDED. We have worked hard to design the projects so that most sentiment and floral stamp sets you may already have may be used to complete the projects. We are however offering you the opportunity to pre-order the exact product we are using to make our demo cards.  You can order just the stamp set or the full bundle if you like.  That way your projects will come out looking exactly like ours. If you do pre-order this product. you will receive a free gift in your retreat box.

Registrations are nonrefundable, but you may transfer your registration to another crafter if you give us notice to do so prior to the event. 

50/50 Draw - with both halves given away:  Buy as many tickets as you like for the draw. Two winners will each receive half the proceeds towards a Stampin' Up! product order (before shipping and hst).  Tickets are $1 each and will be available at the event, but you can pre-order them at a discount with your registration below if you like.

This will be a really fun day - if you've been to one of our events before, you know we spoil you in every way possible. We will have some fantastic Door Prizes throughout the day, and we will play some games as well.
