Hi Everyone,
Here are the last minute things that you will need to know with only 4 sleeps to go.
First, the time for arrival on Friday afternoon will be from 4pm.
Next, here are the final pictures for the Workshops over the weekend.
Workshop 1 - Prima Layout

Everyone will love this beautiful layout - photo size required will be 5" x 7" - however we have cropped this to 5" x 6". Using a landscape photo would also suit this layout. Additional requirements will be the printed paper - what has been used is pages out of an old novel. You will also require some ribbon (left side of page) to go through the canvas. We have used black as it blends in with the background of the photo.

Workshop 2 - Queen and Co Layouts

You will not believe the amount of product that you will receive for this project. You will not need any further items for these. We will also have some other layouts that might inspire you with any of your leftover items.

Workshop 3 - Canvas
The finished size of this canvas is 20" x 16". The only extra item that you will need is paint for the sides of the canvas. We have used a lemon colour, however a chocolate brown or bronze colour would work very well also. We will have paint out at the retreat for purchase if you do not have any. The photos are 3" x 2 1/2" portrait - however an 8" x 6" photo would work just as well. Alternatively you could change the canvas to landscape instead of portrait.
Workshop 4 - 7 Gypsies Photo Stand
We will be supplying the majority of the product for this workshop, however there will be extras available for sale at the retreat. There are a few different ways that you could use this, as a photo album - one customer said it would be great for a baby album as the colours are dusty pinks and blues. Another would be to use it as a perpetual calendar.
We will be posting a timetable for the weekend shortly.
See you there!!

Bring these along to work on in between the Workshops. If you are arriving on Friday, you will be able to work on your own projects in the evening. Don't forget to bring your self healing mat, any tools and adhesives that you might need over the weekend and any projects you would like to work on.

Mini Shop - As we have previously done so, we will once again have a Mini Shop at the Retreat. We will have the basic products here, but we also have the option of ducking back to the shop should you have any special requests.

Please keep checking the blog from now on for regular updates on the Retreat.

If there is any further information that you require, please do not hesitate to contact us at the shop. We are looking forward to having another fantastic weekend!!
