Scrapbooking Retreats

Believe it or not, scrapbooking retreats are becoming quite a trend among avid hobbyists. They are a fun way to get away from it all and spend time with others that enjoy the art form of scrapbooking as much as you do. As with any kind of weekend getaway, the amenities and costs of scrapbooking retreats will vary. Finding one that is right for you and within your budget shouldn’t be too difficult to do.

Scrapbooking Retreats for Small Clubs

Small clubs usually find innovative ways to have scrapbooking retreats on a shoestring budget. With the economy in the state it’s in, very few people have the ability to go to a lavish resort. Many scrapbooking clubs host a weekend of fun and scrapbooking at least twice each year.

Renting a house in the mountains or at the beach is a great way to cut down on the costs of scrapbooking retreats. The truth is you can have fun at the getaway no matter where it’s held. Lodging and food expenses are shared by each member attending. This helps you to still be financially frugal without missing out on the fun!

One of the best things about attending a scrapbooking retreat is the supply swap. Every person attending the getaway brings a bag of supplies that were leftover from other projects or supplies that they bought and just never used. The bag is delivered to the hostess for the weekend. While everyone else is settling into their rooms, the hostess sets up all of the supplies as if it were a store. She then calls everybody out for a free shopping spree. Believe me, you will think you have died and gone to scrapbooking heaven when you attend a scrapbooking retreat!

Specialized Scrapbooking Retreats

Many resorts have now reinvented themselves and became full-fledged scrapbooking retreats. All they do is cater to people who love to scrapbook. Most are set in beautiful locations with loads of amenities.

These specialized resorts usually have a Friday evening welcome party so that all of the guests get to meet and greet. Some offer simple fare such as chips and dip while others have wine and cheese at the party. A lot of the scrapbooking retreats are all inclusive resorts. They supply you with a lovely room, all meals and snacks as well as a variety of scrapbooking supplies. A cash bar is usually available at the resort. The costs of the specialized resorts vary but it won’t be hard to find one that will fit within your budget.

Scrapbooking retreats that are specifically dedicated only to the art form often initiate games. They could be along the lines of bingo with rubber stamps or races to see who can complete the page quickest. The games are usually a great way to get your creative juices flowing for a fun weekend of scrapbooking and fellowship with others that enjoy cropping too.
