Common Questions and Answers

  • How do I know what stamps I need?  All the projects we’ve designed will allow you to use any stamps, inks and paper that you have. Be ready for lots of ideas!

  • Will I be stamping WITH you?  Everyone stamps at a different pace and with that in mind the demonstrations are not designed for you to stamp along with us. The Wednesday before the retreat, the tutorials will be uploaded to the Retreat Hub page. These tutorials include photos, supplies, cutting dimensions and step-by-step instructions. If you want to create with us, you can do just that – print them out or have them up on your computer screen as you watch.

  • Are you sharing projects you’ve shared before? No, these are brand new ideas never seen on my blog.

  • What if I am not available to watch on the day of the Live retreat? What if the time zone doesn’t work for me? This is YOUR retreat and we want everyone to have the experience that works best for them. There are 3 ways you can participate:
  1. Watch the stamping presentations on YouTube,
  2. Follow the links to the pre-recorded videos listed in each tutorial, or
  3. Watch the YouTube replays at any time. If you want to stamp with us, watch the pre-recorded videos and pause as you create. If you love the Lives, click the links that we provide you at the top of every hour. If you want to watch a little and stamp a little, you can do that too.
  • Will I miss out on the door prize drawing if I am not watching Live or don’t post my projects? Door prize winners are chosen from everyone who registers and you don’t need to be watching live to win.
