About Our Retreats


Me!  Hello Fellow Scrappers!

I am Lora Mercado the owner and host of Scrapaholic Retreats, and I am so glad you stopped by! Scrapaholic Retreats began in 2008 and has been going strong ever since. Our weekends are built on the LOVE of Scrapbooking, and caters to the needs of our guests. Please take a few minutes to look around the site and see all of the exciting activities that are included in a Weekend Retreat.

All of our retreats are held at Best Western Indian Oak in Chesterton, Indiana. We set up in a meeting room with a stunning view overlooking the lake. It comfortably accommodates the size of our group. Unfortunately, there is not an elevator, so the room is not wheelchair accessible, but the hotel staff is extremely helpful in carrying our heavy items upstairs.

You are not required to stay overnight at the hotel, if you prefer to commute, as the cost of the hotel room is not included in the price of the retreat.

We always welcome groups, but if you prefer to attend by yourself, that is great too! Everyone deserves a little "ME" time! We are all there for the same reason, so let's just laugh, scrap and have FUN!

Meals are not included in the "At Your Leisure" events. You will be able to come and go as you please. There are numerous fast food and sit-down restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel that you can choose from.

Each scrapbooker has their own 6 foot table space, or shares a large round table with one person. Spread out your scrappin' stuff for the ENTIRE weekend! No need to clean up at the end of a long day of scrappin'. The room will be locked up after the last scrapper is done, so there is no need to worry. Feel free to bring in your own small side table if desired if you would like a little more room.

We want you to RELAX and make the most from your SPECIAL TIME AWAY! You are welcome to stay in your "Jammies" and Slippers the entire weekend if you feel like it!

Each guest will receive a "Scrapaholic" T-shirt with a cute Scrapbooking saying on it. Just be sure to specify your T-shirt size when you register by sending an email to the address listed on the registration page.

Each guest will also receive a "Goodie Bag" of scrapbooking surprises! Included in the bags, but not limited to: Designer Paper, Embellishments,Stickers & MORE! Every Goodie Bag is different!

There is a Snack/Drink table set up. You are also welcome to bring in whatever favorite drinks/snacks you want to munch on as well.

Scrapbooking vendors and consultants are always invited to take part in our retreats. If you are interested in becoming a vendor at one of our retreats, please email me for more information.

Each retreat also includes contests and raffles with fun prizes!


If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me. Just click on the EMAIL tab on the right.

I hope to see you SOON!
