Mary Deatherage and I hosted an Inkin’ Krew Retreat in the north Georgia mountains this past weekend. We had SO much fun and we’re already making plans to do it again next year (maybe even twice!). I wanted to share a few photos from our weekend of stamping with you today.
James welcomed us to the retreat in style! We stayed at the Skyview Mountain Cottage in Ellijay, GA and it was amazing from beginning to end! James whipped up some awesome meals (including desserts!!) and snacks and he took care of everything that we needed the entire time. The cottage is perfectly set up for crafters, we loved it! 🙂
We all brought shoebox swaps to share with the other group members. Mary, Barbara and Susan were busy stamping away on some holiday cards.
Cindy, Leslie and Beth were busy creating a fun gift card holder shared by Julie (in the background) while Julie and Linda were busy stamping away!
Sue and Leslie are working hard on a project here too!
Mary and I did some blog and Facebook Live training and Sue did a presentation on coloring techniques for us…she’s pretty amazing! 🙂
Here are the awesome shoebox swaps that we created this weekend!
This is a cute gift card holder that Julie Johnston designed!
Here is the inside of the gift card holder. It’s got two pockets and a little note card.
Barbara Simmons designed this fun Christmas card for the swap. Such cute little bulbs!
Leslie Larkin created this pretty swap for us. Love that Buffalo Check background!
Cindy Blaine stamped this sweet card for us, love those bright colors!
Linda Richenberg brought a fun treat holder project for us.
Beth Hooper brought this pretty fall card to the swap.
Susan Kuenzel made this amazing snowflake card for our swap!
Sue Prather brought this beautiful sampler as her swap project!
We had some fun playing the “name that DSP” game before dinner on Saturday.
Here we are enjoying the yummy Saturday evening meal…yes, we were well fed all weekend!
A quick shot of all of us hanging out by the fireplace! 🙂 We had so much fun this weekend! Can’t wait to do it again!

They swaps were awesome! So glad that you liked them too! 🙂
I can’t even begin to say how much I enjoyed this weekend! Spending easy-going time with this wonderful group of ladies (and JAMES!) was….AWESOME!! 🙂
It definitely was an awesome weekend!! 🙂
Getting together with stamping buddies….how fun! I miss not having a stamping group close by….
It was a great weekend! 🙂
Don’t let distance stop you! This was NOT close-by for me, but SO worth the drive!
And we loved having you join us!! 🙂
Looks like you ladies had a ton of fun!! The swaps were gorgeous, thanks for letting us all have a peek at them. Hope I can join you next time 🙂
