For many of us the best part of a Retreat are the Pillow Gifts.  Wait – what is a pillow gift?  Well it is something that I learned from attending Stampin’ Up! events.  If you have the opportunity to go to a Stampin’ Up! incentive trip or other special event they leave gifts for you each night on your bed – so everyone calls them pillow gifts. 

That idea spilled over to regular events where roommates bring each other gifts when they room together at a Stampin’ Up! event.  And then it’s been carried over by many into retreats – where you get little gifts left on your table throughout the weekend.  I still tend to call them pillow gifts even though I don’t actually leave them on everyone’s pillow.  At my retreats I leave them on everyone’s table through out the weekend.  Just little fun surprises to delight everyone!  I love to create them and I think everyone loves to receive them!

I thought I’d share with you the pillow gifts from my Spring Retreat –

Pillow Gifts from the Spring 2018 Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat.

  • Magnetic personalized wooden letter
  • Tiny treat box with a chocolate truffle inside
  • Silver Gable box with Silver Baker’s Twine inside
  • Multi Purpose glue and holder
  • Cupcake box filled with a cupcake
  • Notepad and pencil

Plus this time everyone received the pink bag filled with supplies that they used on their Make&Takes with plenty of stuff left over to do what they wanted.  My next retreat will be this fall – be sure you are signed up for my email list so you will get the details when they are released.  It filled up fast this last time!

I had cupcakes made to coordinate with the Sweet Soiree Suite which is what I used for the theme the whole weekend.  They were supposed to look like the cupcakes on pages 10-11 of the Occasions Catalog.  The full suite of products is shown on pages 12-13 and quite a few things are retiring – so make sure you order them now before they are gone at the end of May! 

Supply list for the cupcake boxes:

  • Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper (retiring)
  • Mini Pizza boxes
  • Window Sheets
  • Cake Soiree Bundle (the bundle is retiring but the stamp set and dies will be in the new catalog)
  • Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon
  • White card stock
  • Calypso Coral & Berry Burst ink
  • Circle Framelits
  • Big Shot
