Retreat Class: Frame that Name

In this class we will make the frame of your choice with the name or title you would like. First name, last name, nickname or sentiment, these frames are great gifts for the little (or big) people in your life!

There are 2 colors of frames, black (8.5 x 11)and brown (8 x 10).
The colors above are the following:
Feminine: Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay with Chocolate Chip.
*You could choose to use the paisley background instead of posy or add your own stamps.
Masculine: Real Red and Bermuda Bay with Black.
*You can use wild about you instead of bugs and kisses or decorate it however you'd like.
You may pick 2 colors (in addition to the frame color) for your projects. I would like to accommodate you if you have a specific color scheme you are trying to match. Please let me know what colors you would like to use when ordering. You can change it up however you'd like...these are SO much fun!

Rose Flower

This gallon cookie jar has 3 of the eastern blooms black vinyl mini flowers. You can make the same one or choose the rose red or chocolate vinyl flowers from the decor elements line.

The Cookie Caper
This little bag is designed for cookies, although I'm sure you could put other things in there. Includes: everything is provided except the cookie.
Limit: Unlimited

The Scent of PineThis little bag is a mini coffee bag. You could put a sample of your favorite brew in there, OR something sweetly baked from the heart- whatever you want! I decided to make this one a little more masculine, but if you use the other side of the paper, it has a more feminine appeal.
Includes: everything you see, except your gift inside. Crape paper is available as well.
Limit: Unlimited

Merry Mug
Coffee Mugs are a great little gift for this chilly time of year. Feel free to bring your fillers to class and make the project complete. Some ideas include: hot chocolate mix, marshmallows, candies, candy canes.
Includes: the mug, tag, & ribbon. Crape paper is available as well.
Limit: At this point, I have 12 mugs, but I can get more if there is a need.

A Little Something
Inside this little decorative package is a small cello bag that could hold a myriad of treasures. For my sample, I put some hard candies with the crape paper. Candies or little supplies- whatever you can think of!
Includes: everything you see (except the candy), the cello bag, and crape paper
Limit: unlimited

Frosty Tote
I love this little guy & he's so fast and easy to make. I am hoping to find some orange crape paper to match his nose to go along with this project. It cannot hold super heavy items, but candy bars, little office supplies, gift certificates, would all be great!
Includes: tote, tag, ribbon, crape paper
Limit: 36

Retreat Class: To Cap it Off

The price of this class has yet to be determined, but we are aiming for around $5/container that will include the necklace, 6 bottle caps, and a metal container. The limit to this class will be 30 (meaning 30 containers). I do not have a sample that I have done yet- since my supplies are not ordered, but here is a picture from this blog. This should give you a good idea of what you are looking at making. These little choker/necklaces are great for little girls, tweens, or teens.

Option 2: Just make the bottle caps and use them as magnets. This price will be slightly less than option 1, but will include all supplies listed above except the supplies needed to make the necklace. These would be really cute on a metal post-it board.
