The bundles are available for purchase while supplies last and will be processed and shipped as they are ordered. Whether you plan to complete the projects live with us during the event or sometime after, we recommend ordering your bundles soon!
Virtual Album Retreat—May 15th - 16th

The Album Retreat Projects will be more "intense" and technique driven projects, with lots of techniques being taught on each page of the album for very elevated, stunning scrapbook pages!

After National Scrapbooking Day, Close to My Heart is hosting an Album Retreat...and with the current "at home" situation, our normal in-person Album Retreat has been changed to an ONLINE Virtual Album Retreat AND it has been OPENED TO CUSTOMERS!!!

The Virtual Album Retreat is taking place May 15–16. There will be no registration fee to participate in this event; instead, the only cost for participation will be the cost of the Album Retreat bundle.

The bundle for this event is now available for purchase. It contains materials for completing an entire album's worth of elevated scrapbook pages, including an exclusive E-size stamp set designed just for this album! 

The finished album will include a total of 20 beautiful 12" x 12" scrapbook pages: 8 two-page layouts, 2 single-page layouts, plus a cover layout and a closing page layout, all featuring unique artwork techniques that make each page truly exceptional!

May 2020 Album Retreat Bundle (EB20201) $250

Watch this video to see all the pages you will create. There will be videos to work along with to see how to do all the different techniques. Not only that, it's all PRECUT!

The May 2020 Album Retreat Bundle includes papers from the NEW Stitched Together, Blue Skies, and May–June Mix-in paper collections, plus accessories, Thin Cuts, and stamp sets, including the exclusive E-size Album Retreat stamp set.

In addition to the cost of materials, the price of this bundle also includes expenses related to the preparation work of pre-cutting and packaging pieces for the projects. 

Yes, we will be pre-cutting pattern pieces and accent pieces and packaging them by layout to save you time and to allow us to focus on the techniques and assembly during our time together. 

This bundle is available to EVERYONE interested in participating in the Album Retreat! After you have purchased the bundle, you will receive an email from Close to My Heart with instructions for joining the Facebook Group for the event.

The product bundle will be shipped on May 1; however; we recommend placing your order as soon as possible (prior to April 30) to ensure you're not left out!!! The bundle is while supplies last, so order yours TODAY. The bundle will be shipped separately from other items on May 1st.
