Just two more sleeps until I host my first ever weekend scrapbooking retreat. I'm co-hosting with a couple friends, Noreen & Heather, and we are looking forward to a great weekend with 40 fabulous crafty ladies!! We are headed out to Canmore, Alberta - - a beautiful little town in the Rocky Mountains for some rest, relaxation & scrapbooking!
Needless to say - with the retreat just a few days away - I've been BUSY BUSY BUSY with preparations. We want to make this a really great weekend for our guests! Here is a quick peek at one of the projects I've been working on:
I stamped, scored & folded a total of FORTY of these cute little bag-a-lope gift bags!! (Who knew you could get a sore arm from stamping?!?!) This is my favourite go-to pattern for gift bags/treat bags!! You can make them any size you want . . . just by using a different sized envelope! Check out this great tutorial from Tresa Black. For mine here, I used standard envelopes that fit 4.25" x 5.5" cards and my scoring lines were at 3/4" from the edge.
Now - back to work for me!! Still so much to do!!
