Mountain Air takes us to a beautiful place and time

I love the colors and the mountains – they are so peaceful, so transcending to a special moment in time you keep in your mind and heart!

  • Base layer color is Smokey Slate
  • Mountains….Highland Heather, Blueberry Bushel
  • Reverse side of trees are in Crumb Cake for ground
  • Trees….Mossy Meadow
  • Adventure is die cut from Sweet Silhouttes #149541 in Purple Posy CS
  • Matte’s are Purple Posy CS on Night of Navy
  • Birds are Night of Navy
  • sun/moon is Blushing Bride and Highland Heather

Play around with pretty purples and pinks for the mountains. Follow the samples in the catalog on page 53 for more inspiration!

Our second scrapbook spread is a spring layout using Blackberry Bliss and a retired Stampin’ Up DSP I found in my stash to use with Timeless Tulips bundle #153793

Sorry, color is still a little off with the Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo, and Pool Party It looks great on paper ….not in my pictures though.

Creative Escape 2020

Come join us on a real retreat…..September 25 and 26!

Creative Escape, a crafting retreat, this year will be held at Beech Mountain log cabin rental home. You will choose either 40 cards – Christmas/All Occasion or 20 cards and a 20 page scrapbook to work on. This year, with a little extra time, you should be able to work a little slower or take an afternoon hike. And of course, I am so excited beds for everyone! Some will need to share. Vikki is still planning on coming for massages. And as you see above, I am already planning scrumptious deserts for our desert buffet!

Cost is $300. This is $125 higher that years previous to cover cost of 2 extra meals, valet service hauling things in, and staying at the house. There is also around $50 for product bundle that you will share while at Creative Escape and then take home.

Because of renting the log cabin for Creative Escape this year….I am hoping to have 32 guests! I do not want to charge extra to make sure rental is paid for so invite your friends that like to craft!

So far we have 21 ladies registered! 11 more are able to register….won’t you be one of them?

Also, several have made payments…..to make it easier on the budget, certainly, you may make additional payments. Retreat must be paid in full by the end of August (4 months) and no refunds after August. The product bundles must be paid by the end of Creative Escape. I will offer free shipping on all order through the end of Creative Escape.

Please contact me with questions you may have regarding Creative Escape. We are looking forward to a great retreat this year!
