About Creative Indulgence

22nd-25th April 2021, Millennium Hotel - Manuels, Taupo

Welcome to Creative Indulgence. A scrapbooking retreat like no other, on the shores of beautiful Lake Taupo.

Creative Indulgence is a truly creative weekend away for you and your crafty friends. An opportunity to kick back, relax, create and enjoy each other's company in luxury surroundings for up to 40 creative hours! Welcome to the Millennium Hotel - Manuels, Taupo.



I've planned this weekend for a small group of like-minded friends. Numbers will be around 46 in all, making this a cosy and productive weekend.

Look at the gorgeous space we will work in...



I'm also very pleased to say that Imagine If will be our on-site store throughout the weekend. So you'll have no problem getting hold of essentials and indulging in the new products on offer at the time. There is nothing like an indulgent little splurge is there?

You'll have beautiful food on offer across the weekend too, taking advantage of sumptuous menus at the Beach 243 lakefront restaurant. You can also enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple at happy hour or after dinner in the Lakefront Bar.




My vision for this event is that it is about you being offered the most relaxed environment to be hugely productive and to return home with a fabulous stash of pages for your albums. There are no classes at this event, you bring your own projects.

As an added extra you will receive a project pack of special release papers, chipboard and other embellies for you to use as you desire. There will be enough product for up to 6 layouts. We'll include a few sketches and have some prepared samples should you need some ideas?

There will be a Mixed Media station set up, and other equipment available for your use. You'll simply have no reason to not be creative - unless the view draws you in?!

Does this sound like your cup of tea? If so here are the two options available:

The Essential Indulgence - $565

  • Your “little corner of the world” in the crop room;
  • Crop time from 9am Friday thru 2pm Sunday providing 33 hours of creativity;
  • Morning Teas, Lunches and Afternoon Teas for 2.5 days;
  • Dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings;
  • Bonus Project Pack;

The Ultimate Indulgence - $675

  • All of the above PLUS
  • You join us from 4pm on Thursday thru 2pm Sunday making it 40 hours of creativity!
  • Arrival Afternoon Tea plus Dinner at Beach 243 Restaurant on Thursday night.

Now that is Indulgence!!!
