    Stamping with aMac November 2021 Craft Retreat

    I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for coming to my aMac Christmas Craft Retreat!

    We had a wonderful weekend of creating, sharing, crafting, mingling and generally having fun!

    The weekend was filled with love and laughter. New friendships were made and old friends were accidentally reunited.

    Everyone was a winner of at least a couple of prizes!

    Flower Jar Shaker Card

    I wanted to make the flowers from the Quiet Meadows Bundle look like they are coming out of the jar.

    This card was made using a plastic card sleeve, the sprinkles were 100’s and 1000’s and the bundle I used is Dragonfly Garden.

    Stamping with aMac July 2021 Craft Retreat

    Apologies for the lateness of this Craft Retreat post – my website had been down for a bit over a week but is back on deck now.

    What a wonderful weekend getaway we had. We were so very fortunate to enjoy it given the current COVID-19 circumstances.

    I arrived early to set up the room with the help of Maree, Robyn and Theresa 😘

    At this retreat, we were fundraising for Bornhoffen PCYC to buy flyscreens for the windows of the hall. This will benefit us greatly in the warmer months when moths and beetles are attracted to the lights at night.

    We raised an amazing $630 and I’ve been informed that the screens are getting installed in 2 weeks’ time! 

    Thanks so much to everyone’s generosity!

    We had some wonderful displays…

    We also celebrated Toni’s birthday with a lovely fresh cake!

    Here’s our wonderful groups of crafters who had a great time with good fun being had by all!

    Here’s just some of the MANY projects that were created over the weekend. Some ladies were very productive!

    A huge THANKYOU to all you who came and extra thanks to all those who helped out in various ways. I really appreciate you. 😘

    Looking forward to our next retreat 12-15 November. Let me know if you want to join us!

    Happy Stamping,

    Angela 😊x
