Meet the Creativate Team

We are four top Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who are both “best friends” in life, as well as “best stampin’ friends.” We love to work together to bring you a day filled with stamping presentations, inspiration, laughs, and tons of prizes! We specialize in sharing fun card making projects for all levels of crafters. Each team member brings their unique stamping style to the retreat, guaranteeing a fun variety of projects to learn.

The Creativate team began our virtual stamping retreat in April 2020 to give crafters the opportunity to learn, stamp, and enjoy virtual fellowship with others around the world. The retreats continue to grow every quarter and have become the largest (and best) stress-free stamping retreat available. We continue to keep the cost affordable and focus on teaching you new ways to use the crafting products that you already have. Although we use Stampin’ Up! products in all of our projects, I promise that you’ll be inspired and excited to create with any of your favorite card making supplies.

What Sets Creativate Apart?

Written Tutorials

Step-by-step PDF tutorials for 48 different card making and paper crafting projects. Tutorials include measurements, supplies used, and detailed easy-to-follow instructions. All projects are designed so that you can create them with any stamps, ink, and paper. We don’t want you to have to buy new products just to create the projects. Learn to use what you have!

Video Tutorials

Projects are presented via video in two different ways – live and recorded! Each stamping presentation during the retreat is streamed via a private YouTube Live. You can watch this live or watch the replay afterward. Or, if you prefer videos without all the chit-chat of a live, each project has a pre-recorded video. These shorter videos are great for creating along with us, you can start and stop as often as you like!

Variety of Projects

As a team, we work hard to present a variety of different types of projects for each retreat. You will find everything from fun fold cards to unique techniques, boxes, and bags, quick and easy, to over the top! There is always a huge variety and something for everyone. With all the ideas and inspiration, you will be busy stamping until the next retreat rolls around!

World Wide Retreat Community

Each retreat has an optional private Facebook Group where you can share your projects, plus see thousands of other creative designs from attendees. It’s a great way to connect with like-minded crafters and be inspired by others. In addition, if you choose to watch the live stamping presentations you’ll be able to ask questions, connect, and chat with others!

Prize Drawings

We love to give away lots of prizes! Everyone who registers for the retreat will go into the random prize drawings. No need to be present or participate live to win. We post all winners the Sunday after the retreat, so make sure to check and see if you are a winner!

Participate YOUR Way

I like to say the Creativate Retreat is a “do it your way” retreat. You can participate live, watch replays, or just grab all the amazing tutorials. You don’t have to be present, and you will have unlimited access to watch presentations and download tutorials anytime. We post all the tutorials on the Thursday before the retreat, so you can begin creating then if you want, or save for future use. Creativate is a stress-free stamping retreat from the comfort of your home!

What Others Are Saying

“The Creativate Team ought to pat yourselves on the back knowing that YOU ARE THE BEST. There have been two attempts at ‘copy-cat’ and zero successes. Yeah I had to check them out but only once. No comparison in any way!”

“This was my first retreat—and certainly won’t be my last!! Loved all of the videos and projects and ideas, oh my!!!”

“I love that the format is that we can watch everything, and make everything at our leisure and on our own time schedule. I am never available on retreat day, but love “participating” throughout the following month! You guys are amazing and so creative, I have learned so much from these retreats.”

“Absolutely awesome and amazing, learned so much. Love you all on the Creativate Team and thank you for sharing all your hard work, creativity and fun. Can’t wait for the next one.”

Retreat details and registration information will be sent via my weekly email for each Creativate Online Stamping Retreat. If you do not currently receive my emails, click the button below. I will also send you a fun ONE SHEET WONDER tutorial when you subscribe, plus weekly card making tutorials!

Past Retreat Collections Still Available

If you missed any of the past retreats, all of the tutorials and project videos are still available. Some of the products used may be retired, however, all projects are designed to be created with any products you have. These are amazing tutorial collections filled with so many stamping ideas!

Can I participate if I don’t live in the US?

YES. Everyone worldwide can participate! This is an online stamping retreat and we are not sending products or mailing any information.

Can I participate if I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator?

YES. We love sharing ideas with other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Feel free to bring your friends, customers, and team members. Everyone is welcome!

What are pre-retreat stamping challenges?

We like to get the fun started right away, so we share 4 different stamping challenges for you to help get your fingers “inky” and warmed up for the retreat. These are totally optional to do and just a fun way for us to share more stamping ideas and tutorials with you. You can participate as a challenge, or just use the tutorial that comes with each challenge for card making ideas. During the pre-retreat stamping challenges, you will get 12 different card making tutorials!

What if I am not available the day of the retreat?

No problem! Everything is recorded and available for replays. You can work through the retreat projects at your own pace when you are available. Or, go back and re-watch anything, anytime!

Will I be stamping along with you?

Since everyone stamps at a different pace, the retreat is not intended for you to stamp all the projects with us. We will provide you with all of the tutorials ahead of the presentations so you can have supplies ready for the projects you want to create during the retreat. And then, stamp at your leisure and create the projects in the days/weeks following the retreat. We give you enough ideas to keep you stamping until the next retreat!

How do I know what stamps and supplies I will need?

No special supplies are needed! We design the projects so that they can be created with products you already have. Most projects can be made with any stamps, ink, paper, and a few basic supplies. We want you to learn to use and create with what you have. We also don’t want you buying things you don’t like.
