There will also be a large selection of tools available for delegates to use. They will include a Cricut machine (with a selection of cartridges), a Big Shot, a Grand Calibar, WRMK Sew Easy and Sew Stamper tools, a selection of Sizzix and Spellbinder dies, various punches and much more.

We’ll be creating some great scrapbook and beyond-the-page projects using the latest Kaisercraft products. As well as the projects included in the chosen option, which will include full detailed instructions to allow you to craft at your own pace, each delegate will also receive a very special project designed especially for the Retreat. Delegates will also have the chance to purchase additional layout kits especially designed for the Retreat and there will also be Optional technique classes which will be taught by Emilie Chamel which will be held in an adjacent room.
