the stationery intensive

for the stationer who is ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work!

Say no more, I’m in!

this was made for you

with Heather O'Brien

Well, first, let's cover what it IS NOT
- it is not a pre-recorded course or training
- it is not a conference where you take notes and then go home
- it is not entry level stationery basics

So, what is a stationery intensive exactly? 

however, it is:

- an in-person, workshop style business retreat for stationers
- where you'll learn other stationers aren't your competition, they become your cohort, promise
- all inclusive (education, food and accommodations!) 

This stationery intensive will be 3 full days of specific education AND implementation for your stationery business. You're not just here to take tons of notes and go home and attempt it on your own. This intensive, is just that -- an intense working retreat. Plus a little fun sprinkled in!

And it doesn't hurt to make some new friends along the way and get pampered, does it!? I didn't think so!

If this sounds like something that is right up your alley and you're interested in learning more, read on, friend!

We are here to learn AND get it done. 

"I would highly recommend it to any solo-preneur wanting to move their business forward while having a wonderful time and laughs along the way!

I came into the Stationery Intensive with an open mind and left with a heart and mind full of rejuvenation, ideas and practical strategies to propel my business forward in the coming year. It's easy to start to feel isolated when working at a home studio by yourself all day so getting 4 days with like-minded people was so "cup-filling" so to speak. Heather was so well prepared to pour into us for 4 days and she really thought of so much to make us feel welcomed, inspired and educated! I would highly recommend it to any solo-preneur wanting to move their business forward while having a wonderful time and laughs along the way! Thank you Heather! I look forward to 2023 and what's in store for my business! 

Kate Lemish | Elated Paper Co.

I remember the very first time I sat in a room with other stationery designers. It was February of 2014, and I was in awe. There was this whole new world of stationery designers that I was introduced to. There were people who truly understood what I was going through. It was no longer just me behind my computer screen. While that was many years ago, I have made lasting friendships in this community that mean the world to me and ever since, in-person events have held a special place in my heart. 

I knew that when I started The Cultivated Creative in 2019 to share my love for education + stationery, that without a doubt, an in-person event would be in the cards. The last few years have been a challenge on that front with the world turned upside down, but I am so, so excited to welcome you with open arms to a new, in-person event, exclusively made for stationery designers. 

As a stationery designer myself for the last 12 years and an educator for 3 of those, I can not wait to meet each and every one of you and help take your stationery business to the next level through heartfelt education + implementation. 

Hi, I'm Heather!

FACEBOOK GROUP

"We bonded with other stationers who understand the ups and downs of our business."

Heather's attention to every detail made the Stationery Intensive a truly wonderful and inspiring retreat. We were guided through educational sessions to help enhance our systems so we can focus on the art of designing invitations. We bonded with other stationers who understand the ups and downs of our business. We had the opportunity to ask questions and have meaningful discussions about our businesses. I recommend all stationers sign up for the next stationery retreat with Heather!

still curious if this stationery intensive is right for you?

Stationery education is what I specialize in, see what some past attendees have to say about their experience at the stationery intensive


- Brea Gilchrist | The Lettery Co.

The Stationery Intensive is the best investment I have made in my business. For me, the timing was perfect to reconnect to myself as a creative business owner...something that was getting lost in the chaos of parenthood, pandemic and all of the other elements of life. The opportunity to be fully present for three whole days with a group of like-minded stationers was invaluable. The balance of educational sessions and implementation time meant I could learn new things while also leaving with a sense of accomplishment. And the details! From delicious food to Heather's creative touches and sunrise walks on the beach, it was truly a retreat.


- Heather Cannon  | HSR Graphics

I am beyond grateful for Heather and this intensive she put together. To be able to spend quality time on my business and learning from other stationers that truly understand EXACTLY what I go through as a business owner and a wedding stationer. It was amazing to meet all of these women and the connections I made I will cherish forever. I went into this not knowing entirely what to expect and it was so much more than I could have imagined. From the education sessions, one on one time with Heather and the interaction with the others was something that was truly beneficial. I can't even begin to express my appreciation and gratitude for putting all of this on. The amazing "swag" was just the cherry on top of this amazing experience. I 100% recommend this intensive and would be back in a heartbeat!


- Ashley Haglund | Ashley Elizabeth Designs

This retreat was a huge win for me, I feel like it was the missing link for my business. Not even solely in the education but just learning how everyone deals with certain things in their business. I just learned so much from being immersed a room with other stationers. I believe once I implement everything I left with on my to do list I will be on my way to where I have always dreamed I could be.

“This sounds great, but I’ve got questions!”

Keep reading, I’ve got your answers!

01. CAN YOU ELABORATE ON THE SHARED ROOM VERSUS THE PRIVATE ROOM?
answer:

If you choose to purchase a private room spot, you will have a room and bathroom completely to yourself for privacy (only 5 of these spots available). If you choose to purchase a shared room, you will be sharing a full-size, double-bunk room and bathroom with 1-2 other attendees (only 7 of these spots available).

02. What if I’ve been in business less than a year (or it’s not even a business yet?)?
answer:

I am SO excited for you as you’re building your business! As much as I’d love to welcome you with open arms at the intensive, my goal is to ensure this really is the perfect fit for every person attending. This intensive would be best suited for stationers who have a good foundation with their business and are ready to streamline it and take it to the next level. 

03. What if I’ve been in business 5+ years? Is the content challenging enough for me?
answer:

Yes! The amazing thing about this intensive is that it is small enough that we will focus on YOU and your goals! At this point in your business you are probably ready to expand and grow or have some amazing new revenue streams you’re ready to launch; let’s get those going! 

04. How long will registration be open?
answer:

Registration will be open until December 14, 2022 or until all 12 spots are filled. PS our last retreat sold out in 6 days!

05. What is not included in registration?
answer:

If you haven’t deduced it yet, I love to spoil y’all! The only thing not included in your ticket price is your airfare and/or transportation. My goal is for this to be an all-inclusive experience so you don’t have to worry about lodging or any meals!

06. What do I need to bring? 
answer:

I recommend that you bring your laptop and charger, this is a working retreat after all! We will also have a stationery styling session, so you will need to bring one of your favorite suites and any pieces you want styled with it! During the day, we’ll be comfy while working, but will also have some fun dinners planned, think beach casual.
