Technique Retreat 2018 @ Home

April 9, 2018 - April 15, 2018

$7.00 – $85.00

By popular demand we are making our Technique Retreat, held each March in Leavenworth Washington, available to you in a home version. We wish everyone could join us at our annual event, but sometime traveling across the country isn’t an option.

Technique Retreat 2018 Attendee Spot

Our Technique Retreat 2018 @ Home option includes a pre-release of our next Techniques Magazine as well as all of the cut project supplies to make the projects included in the magazine. It also includes a Technique Notebook. If you are new to stamping, or just want to get right to the fun part, then this is definitely your best choice. You’ll get inspiration plus the supplies all cut and ready to go!

Technique Retreat 2018 projects are centered around Brusho Crystal Colour and Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Blends techniques. Each Technique Retreat highlights eight techniques using one stamp set to showcase some of the many ways you can use stamps to create a large variety of different projects. You’ll be amazed and delighted with all the new things you can do with your stamps.

As an added resource, the @ Home version includes a stylish, studio-themed Technique Notebook filled with printable instructions and a place to hold technique samples for this year’s stamping techniques. These tutorials are specially designed to be something that you’ll come back to again and again. They have been put together so you can start building a hands-on reference book, complete with a sample card of the technique and instructions. And the best part? It fits into a 6″ x 8″ album which is included. You can quickly organize the techniques in a way that works best for you so that you can find what you need, when you need it.

Can you deliver to other countries?

We are only allowed to ship products to customers in the United States.

How and when will the kit be shipped?

The projects will be shipped Priority Mail to customers the week of April 9th, 2018. The Magazine may be shipped separately so it won’t be damaged during shipment.

What is the MarketPlace?

I’ve designed my retreat events so you can complete included technique projects without being rushed. However, there are those who stay up late or quick at completing the projects so I have created the MarketPlace. The MarketPlace is where top paper crafting designers will offer projects to be completed that are more detailed projects (or just plain cute), ranging from cards to gift giving. These projects are optional but many retreat guests enjoy the opportunity to add them. We had amazing projects this year and I’m excited for you to get your hands on them. MarketPlace projects are not included in the Technique Retreat 2018 @ Home price. They can not be purchased separately.

Can I purchase just the tutorials?

Not at this time. We may make them available in the future.

Can I purchase just the Magazine?

Not at this time. The magazine will be available to the public in May 2018.

Can I purchase the additional products from you?

Yes, you can. I’ve provided links above. If you purchase any Stampin’ Up! products through my store pages, I will provide some of my favorite pillow gifts from the retreat as a thank you. If you are already working with a demonstrator, I kindly ask that you continue to work directly with them as I am sure they appreciate your support as much as I do.

What is the refund policy?

There is no refund once the kit has been mailed.

I already have the Kit Stamp Set?

Great. When you register, you will be asked if you would like to substitute for another stamp set. Here are the options:

Kit Set – Beautiful Day – Clear (#145915)
Substitution – Apron of Love – Photopolymer (#145835)

Our retreats are all-inclusive, informative, and fun. View our upcoming retreats here.

Each spring I look forward to attending the Craftyperson’s technique retreat! There is always delicious foods, a serene setting, thoughtfully prepared projects and lots of surprises. The staff and facilities are top notch and Debbie has a great group of ladies that love to share their ideas and more than willing to help each other. One of my favourite parts is showing up with just scissors! She provides everything so there is not stress about packing either. All project supplies are provided even the adhesives. The event is designed so you can complete the technique project without stress and take your time. I you are a night owl or just speedy there is also a MarketPlace where her designers provide more detailed projects. Some of the projects are seen above. They always blow me away with their ideas and it’s lovely that they are right there to answer any questions and help you along if you need extra guidance. These projects are optional and reasonably priced. Visit her Craftyperson website if you might like to be included in one of her events. You will be happy you did!

Technique Retreat in Leavenworth Washington

I had a wonderful time at the Technique Retreat 2015 and enjoyed all the projects. The retreat was well-organized, had beautiful projects, and the venue was amazing. I’ll definitely sign-up for the next one!

I got a beautiful card in the mail. You know, one of those that looks like it came from someone who crafts and thinks highly enough of me to take the time to make it. Thank you for my card!!!

I do so enjoy ya’ll’s service. I am learning a lot from your information.

Such a wonderful presentation! I love those colors, but wouldn’t think to put them together; thank you for sharing your ideas! [on Color Inspiration for August]

My Favorite Amazon Crafting Buys

I’ve become an Amazon junkie since I have Amazon Prime and Dot. If I’m not buying crafting stuff from my own Stampin’ Up! store, I then go to Amazon. These items are tried and true products I use all the time. I’ve mentioned or my customers, friends, and demo sisters have seen me use them and have asked where I ordered them from and how much. My mind isn’t what it used to be so I’ve compiled a list of my favorite Amazon craft finds here. I’ll continue to update this list.
