2019 Scenic Stamping Retreat

April 11-14, 2019 | Morris, IL
Our scenic stamping retreat offers a unique, a la carte format. Consequently, people come from all over the USA and beyond to attend. Because of this, you control what you participate in and your costs. The retreat fee of only $125 is a rental fee. It provides you work space for the duration of the event. This is where you work on your projects, practice techniques and share inspiration. Finally, this provides you access to over 1000 stamps, stamp cleaner, basic tools and our hospitality table. 

SCENIC STAMPING CLASSES
Scenic stamping classes make this retreat unique. Classes are sold individually. Because we want you to get the most value possible, the first class is for beginners. More importantly, this class is free for first time attendees! You can take additional classes featuring many techniques. Pre registration is required. Classes will be finalized, and registration will open after our spring stamp release debuts. This will take place 6 to 8 weeks prior to the event.

NON-STOP INSPIRATION
Because attendees share ideas, inspiration and encouragement, attendees learn from each other. Additionally, lasting friendships are formed.

CONVENIENCE
Because people travel long distances to attend, we provide convenience.  First you choose from over 1000 scenic stamps to share. You will enjoy images from Makin’ A SceneStampscapes, Sutter and many other lines. Secondly, we provide basic tools. These include a paper trimmer, heat gun, pencil sharpener, Cuttlebug and more. Finally, we provide an air brush station for you to use with your Copic sketch markers. Consequently, you only have to bring consumables!

When you stay at our host hotel, you get a hot, complimentary breakfast. Additionally, you have 24 hour access to our hospitality table. This includes snacks, water, coffee and tea.

Because we want to provide additional interest without pressure, swaps and contests are optional.
