  1. We used to have Friday night stamping nights at our local stamp store ... that's how I got started making cards many years ago ... now I usually only have virtual friends to create with me.

  2. Hey Kristie - what an awesome giveaway!! I am a subscriber to your blog and a member of StampNation (greetingsfromsusan). I unfortunately have not (yet) made it to any retreats, I did go to a National scrapbooking day 12hr event once that was tons of fun! I saw the challenge this morning and dove right in - it was a fun one for sure!! But they all are :)

  3. Hi Kristie, I receive your blog updates everyday, I love them. I've not been to a scrap booking retreat in a long while, now I only craft with my daughter or friends. Great giveaway, I've been wanting a MISTI. 😃

  4. Hi Kristie! I'm a current subscriber of your blog and a StampNation member (SueB). I was fortunate enough to attend both StampNation Live retreats. We had so much fun, but the best part was actually getting to meet all the Sistahs face to face ... Especially you! ❤️

  15. I used to work at a stamping and scrap booking store. Once a year, we'd have a Stamp Camp event for our customers. It would run from a Friday afternoon through to Sunday afternoon. We got a conference room at a local hotel and participants would bring their supplies and get a big space at one of the tables to work on their projects. There were drawings, make 'n takes, and product for sale. It was always very popular!

  21. Kristie, this is an INCREDIBLE giveaway, and someone is going to walk away a very happy stamper! You know me as StamperJoyce from SN, and I've never been to a stamping retreat.
