Technique Retreat 2018 @ Home

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?
