Crafty Escape Retreat News

By | October 4, 2016

Well what a weekend we just had! It was exhausting but exhilarating to organise a successful Crafty Escape Day for a group of wonderful crafty ladies here in Wiltshire.  I thought I would share a little medley of photos from the day.


We had a technique class in the morning – luckily noone had too late a night or too early a start as we had a full morning’s sessions planned for them. We used the fabulous ‘It’s a Celebration’ from the new Autumn Winter catalogue to create a co-ordinating suite of gifts, from a candle, to a gift box with a matching tag and shaker card.

Here is the candle and gift box. I used the colours in the product suite as my inspiration – with Sweet Sugarplum and Silver.


It’s been a while since I created a candle like this and I loved making this one with this particular stamp set. It was the first time I tried to add a heat embossed image to a candle and it worked really well.



And here is a bird’s Eye view as we used some Silver Foil and a little more embossing for the box closure together with the lovely glitter ribbon, again from the new Autumn Winter Catalogue.


if you pop by again soon, I will share some of our afternoon projects. We had a great Christmas Stamp-a-Stack organised by my lovely downline Caroline Thomas from Craft with Caro.

In the meantime, here is a list of everything I used on the day.  Remember the offers for World Cardmaking Day are still available at the time of posting and our DSP offer is still active too.  If you use the current Rainbow Rewards code, CEFJZYWM, you will receive an extra little gift in the psot from me too.

      Thank you Dawn – these were the projects from my Crafty Retreat held this weekend near Swindon. I will have a candle tutorial up here tomorrow. I’m afraid I can’t share the other project instructions as it wouldn’t be fair on the ladies who came on the day. However, I may well do another class including this style of box – I’ll keep you posted if you’re interested.
