Paperie Retreat with Monica Gale.





 Two weeks ago I went on the Paperie Retreat organised by Monica Gale at Monk Fryston Hall in Yorkshire.
It was an amazing Week-end!
On the Friday night we made these Box Cards using the Flower Shop and Festive Flurry Stamp Sets.








We then made this cute Gift Card Holder cut out with the Pop n cuts Die and decorated with a bow cut out using the Gorgeous Gift Bow Bigz Die.










 The following day we made this gift box using the Acetate Cover from the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes.
I love the matching card and the envelope made using the Diagonal Plate on the Score Board.






 Then we decorated one of the Muslin Bags from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue. They are so easy to stamp on.
The gold line is glitter applied to sticky double sided tape.
These bags were then filled with fragrant lavender.
They smelt divine!




This is a beautiful box that was filled with four Christmas cards. The Box was made out of Natural Composition card stock and the new Season of Style Designer Paper



This is one of the Christmas Card designs. We used the Special Season Stamp Set on the Natural Ivory Card Stock and finished it off with a Frosted Finishes embellishment and some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine.



This was the other design. I used my Bone Folder to distress the edges.The background was stamped using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.
We made two of each card.

This was the icing on the cake! Monica designed this banner especially for the Week end and it is fabulous.
I am now a great fan of Heat and Stick Powder as it it provides the ideal surface when heated to adhere glitter. I tried it with clear embossing powder when I got home but there is no comparison. the heat and Stick won hands down!


On the Sunday we decorated a Decorative Window Gift Box from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.
I love the colour Combo of Tangerine Tango and Coastal Cabana.




Lastly we stamped four coasters using Stazon black ink. We coloured them in with a chalk marker and then used a blender pen with drops of coloured ink.
