Paper Haven Retreat Project - version one.

Hello there! Apologies for the Blog being a bit quiet. I have not felt very well since Sunday morning so I am taking things a lot easier this week. I only have one event on for the whole week and will be having some family time over Easter.

I wanted to start sharing the projects we made on my Retreat day on Saturday. This was version one of the morning project. We did another one in other papers/colours which I will share another day. The ladies got half a pack of the gorgeous Something Borrowed papers to create this project. Unfortunately the beautiful Butterfly dies are unavailable to order at the moment due to stock issues but we are hoping this will be resolved shortly.
The ladies also got a full reel of the Sahara Sand lace trim included as well as lots of other goodies too!
This frame card was made using a tutorial that I found on Pinterest.
We also decorated inside the card with some more of the paper and a little more stamping.
We made a box to house the card as its far too deep to pop in an envelope. I will share the box with you tomorrow. On that note I will be going. Today is the very last day of Sale-A-Bration. It’s been a fantastic promotion and I would like to take the time to thank my wonderful customers, both in person and online, my hostesses and my supporters - you are very much appreciated.

Paper Haven Day Retreat

Good Morning! Sorry for the lack of blog yesterday, I was on the go from 8am yesterday morning and I got home at 8.15pm last night. I was running my Paper Haven Retreat day which was supposed to go on until 9pm but the ladies did their projects very speedily and we were all very tired by the end of the evening too! Here is the room at about 9.30 in the morning just before my ladies arrived.
 And of course I had plenty of makes on display too
My guests got a goody bag containing a generous amount of Stampin Up goodies to use throughout the day. I also made them a little treat box as their place setting but I don’t think anyone looked inside to see what was in!!! It’s a little Lindt bunny for Easter!
 I will share the projects with you this week but here is the box of one of the mornings projects made by Rebecca
 The ladies come for the crafting projects but also they come for the lovely food that we have catered for us! Have to say the cakes this year were rather large! We didn’t want to cut into them!
 This is our lovely evening buffet spread made by the lovely Jean from Tastebuds.
 And soon it was time to pack up and go home! 
I will be running another All Day Retreat in the run up to Christmas so watch this space!

Thank you to those who are continuing to place Online Orders for my Hostess Code Club. So far there are well over £100 in Hostess spends to share between the ladies and I am looking forward to selecting gifts to send out to you.

Today is the last day to order on my Online Store (min £20) using the code  9RZYSMCW . I will be closing the order at 7pm this evening.

You can find out more about how this Online Code Club works HERE and look forward to something extra in the post from me!
