Retreat Time

This weekend I attended the 15th bi-annual Paperie Scrapbook Retreat at the Wilds…I got there a day late because of car issues but I HAD A FANTASTIC TIME!!! As usual I only got a few layouts done because I was being the social butterfly that I am. Not to mention the fact that I’m a perfectionist and pay close attention to details so I take FOREVER to do a layout…I have “commit and stick” issues.

I arrived Friday around noon and scrapped until Sunday evening. I also did a demo on the Silhouette Cameo and I debuted my page kit “GEOMETRICS”. (GEO tag stamp and die cut, Geometrical Shapes of hexagons,arrows, circles,hearts, rectangles, stars….the name just fit!) I gave a few close-up sneaks in this post…but here is the reveal of “SIGNAL HILL”:

Lots of Freckled Fawn and Bella Blvd Washi Tape on this layout. Patterned Papers from Studio Calico, October Afternoon and Echo Park’s Sweet Day Collection…Love that Hexagon “Delightful” paper. I cut out the hexagons with my scissors and used the Crafters Workshop Hexagon stencil to make the smaller hexagons. I added some faux stitching and journaling with a black pen.

Also used some wood grain Brown cardstock and black cardstock for the title I cut using my Silhouette Cameo. I also used Wood Veneer Embelishments from Studio Calico, Moxxie buttons,Lawn Fawn Lawn Trimmings,Studio Calico “HERE GEOTAG” die-cut (cut with Silhouette Cameo) and Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Handwriting CLEAR letter stickers (used these on the photo for the quote).

See the GEOTAG FLAIR? I made that!!!!! I first got the Studio Calico paper and stamped it with the KELLY PURKEY GEOTAG stamp with black ink. I then topped it off with the EPIPHANY Bubble Cap….I LOVE IT!!!!!

Here are a few pics of Norine working on my kit…
