I can’t wait to see what the projects are this year! Returning girlfriends who attended in the past have already been notified, and we are about 40% full! There is still plenty of space, but do make your reservation because this crafting event will sell out!

    Paper Wishes Team, hello. I’m wondering if there is a store onsite at the Girlfriend’s Getaway? I’m flying in and would like to buy adhesive and goodies at the Getaway. TIA.

      Hi Rhonda! I’m so happy to hear that you’ll be joining us for Girlfriends Getaway! So the day of the event, you only need to bring your paper trimmer and a small cutting mat. We provide everything else you will need! We do offer a large selection of goodies to purchase (think papers, cutting dies, ribbons, embellishments), but typically not basic supplies like adhesive (since we are already providing that). If you are going to be here all weekend and were hoping to carry the crafting on into Sunday, I’d recommend maybe including a few small basics in your luggage like glue stick, ink pads and any other “must-haves” :). But you won’t need them for Saturday – just bring your paper trimmer and a small cutting mat and we really do supply everything else! I hope this answers your question!

    Michelle, Sure wish I lived in Oregon so I could attend. But sad to say, I am a Pennsylvania girl and the trip is not in my budget. Will the kit be available like it was last year? Could I make a suggestion about the kit? It would be great if it contained a DVD on how to create the projects. Just a thought for those who cannot attend this fantastic event.

      I’m so sorry you won’t be able to join us, but don’t worry because YES, the Girlfriends Getaway kit will be available for purchase! And a DVD is included so you’ll be able to follow along with Paulette and create all the projects! It’s the second-best thing to actually attending :).
