The other weekend I went on the Blissful Retreat with some great friends, and met some new friends too. This was my first time at a retreat that was 3 days of stamping, yes 3 days of stamping!!!
I started out prepping by making packets for 8-10 cards. This consisted of cutting paper, prestamping images, deciding on embellishments, markers for coloring, embossing items, and any other little odds and ends together. It was my goal to get as many cards done as I could. I finished 67 cards that weekend! Wow! For me that was fabulous for my first retreat.
I also wanted to bring treats for all the ladies in the group. So I got an idea from the Cape Cop Creative Journey Retreat and went from there. So this was the idea and pieces to make the treats, because candies are always needed when stamping!
Here’s to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge!!
So after putting after all the pieces together this is how they came out. The theme of the retreat was orange and butterflies, so I incorporated them with it being fall the orange was easy. Then just adding a butterfly worked out so well.
Here’s the close up pictures of the treats. I added some candies in the card slot for when they needed a little pick me up. They were fun and easy to make. This gift card die Cutter from Lawn Fawn is fabulous and so versatile. Think outside the box and the crafts are endless!

Hi I'm Nicole and started knitting about 10 years ago. Then took up stamping about a year ago after being inspired by a friend. Now I have decided to see where it takes me.
