Scrappin' Escapes bio picture

    We are a scrapbooking retreat company located in Southern California offering a variety of scrapbooking getaway options to escape.

    Whether you choose a small cottage style retreat with a limited number of scrappers or a huge resort-style event with 50 plus attendees, we have you covered!

    Big or small, all of our events have one thing in common -- our guarantee that no detail will be overlooked to ensure that you have an ESCAPE to remember!

Kit, kits, and more kits!

Today, we have a sneak peek of a few of the all NEW 12×12 layout kits that Lori from Scrapping with a Twist has created for our January retreat.

Her kits are very popular and sell out quickly, so if you see a kit you like, make sure to stop by her boutique early:)

Lori has been creating and selling kits and unique Scrapbooking supplies at our events since 2013, and she can’t wait to see you all at the January, 2016 retreat!image7image6image5

IMG_3507IMG_3508IMG_3509 2Every year my tree is filled with handmade ornaments I’ve received from my children.  The stresses of the holidays and finding “the perfect gift” can be overwhelming sometimes.  As I look at the Christmas tree and reflect back on years past…I realize that the greatest gifts were not the most expensive..they were the most thoughtful.  I love making gifts for family & friends.  Don’t overlook what may be right in front of you.  CREATE!!  that’s what we do best!


IMG_3243My first blog post on my new website!!  Thanks to my awesome niece and her husband, I am now able to change the website as often as I like, adding photos and blog posts.  I can do tips and tricks or just “talk” to all of you!  I am so excited.  Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year!  As I sit preparing kits for the January Retreat, I get excited about 2016 and  have so many ideas for the future of Scrappin’ Escapes!  I have so many of you that come to every event and I really want to make each one more “exciting” that the other!  If you have tried us out yet you really should!  We are a fun group for sure! IMG_2266
