We are SO bummed that we aren’t able to craft and cruise to Alaska together this year.

However,  that doesn’t mean we can’t still CRAFT together… virtually!!

We hope you’ll join us for a Virtual Holiday Extravaganza Crafting to Alaska Retreat the weekend of September 17th, 18th and 19th, 2021! This event is open to everyone – ! The more the merrier! 

This event will be an avid crafter’s dream hosted by Patty Bennett of PattyStamps and Kurstan del Rosario of StampwithKurstan



• 6 Online Facebook Live Classes (More than 25 over the top projects, featuring cards, 3D items and a home décor project) using Stampin’ UP! July-December 2021 products (Holiday)!

• Kick-Off Party with GAMES and Alaska FUN
• Alaska and Retreat themed Swag

Classes will take place on Saturday, September 18th and Sunday, September 19th via Zoom/Facebook in a private Facebook Group. You will be invited to the Facebook Group as registration is submitted. The extra event fun, class agenda and additional supply lists (ink colors, etc) will also be posted in the group. You will have access to the group and all contents for 1 year following the event weekend.



1. You will be placing a $100 online order in July using a host code provided to you on 6/30. We will let you know what to order and it will be delivered to your home. You will use these supplies for the event (just like you would have if crafting on the ship, but this is a $100 order, not $150 required for the cruise).

2. You will also need to have the 3 bundles and ink featured in our event. You can add them to your $100 order (with an extra free gift from us) or you can order them from yourself if you are a demonstrator. This is in addition to the $100 order.

3. We will be mailing you an extra packet with supplies, gifts, prizes and fun goodies, to arrive about a week before the event!

We, therefore, strongly urge you to go ahead and place your Host Code order on August 3rd so that you can get the products you need and so that we can use the host rewards in a timely manner to order the additional products we need for the preparation of your packet that will be mailed around September 1st.
