Hello! This is my first post since landing back in Australia after my 3 week trip to the UK for the 2017 Happy Little Stampers Retreats!
What an amazing time we had and I would like to share some photos with you.
First up was Manchester at the beginning of November.
Our itinerary was Light Up Christmas Cards, Partial Die Cutting Techniques, Brusho Techniques - Smooshing, Emboss Resist, Stencils.
Day 1 I showed everyone how to create a light up card using Chibitronic Light Circuits.
Day 2 was messy with Brushos and Watercolouring but unfortunately I hardly took any photos!
We made 62 cards that weekend. Not bad for 11 of us! Here are a 'few' of them :)
Then it was time to say goodbye :(
Thank you to everyone that came along that weekend. I loved every minute of it and can't wait to see you all again!
Here are some shots of my travels before, during, and after the retreats -
Ok, on to Swindon!
The itinerary was the same as Manchester!
Total of cards made at Swindon - 63!
Overall there were a total of 125 cards made at both retreats. WOW!
I would like to thank Sandie, Sarah, and Val who allowed me to 'live' with them while I was over there. You all made me feel so welcome. So welcome that I will have to come back and stay again haha!
Thank you to Anita for being my driving buddy and for the lovely time we had sightseeing at Stratford-upon-Avon.
Another thank you to Sarah who took delivery of all our supplies for the retreats!
Thank you to Susan and Kathy - I stole some of your photos :)
A massive thank you to everyone who made the journey to be part of the retreats. Spending time with like minded crafty people is seriously the best thing. We get to check out each others stash and have a play. There are many, many laughs and who could ask for more?
Thank you for popping in. I will be back soon with some cards that I made while at the retreats. xx
