Holiday Catalog Favorites

Welcome to another of our Thailand Achiever blog hops!!  This is the last hop for this group!  But have no fear!!  I will be back again next month -- it will just have a name change!  I am proud to officially announce that as of July 31, 2017 I have officially earned the Alaska trip offered by Stampin' Up!  A HUGE thank you to all of my fabulous customers and hard-working downline for without whom I could not have done it!

Today I am sharing some awesome items from the brand new Holiday Catalog that went live to you my customers just two weeks ago!  Already, the response to it has been incredible!  In addition to some of the new products, I love mixing in some of the "older" items as well!

I am highlighting both the Cat Punch and the Leaf Punch (both found in the Holiday Catalog).  I punched the leaves from some of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper found on Page 49 of the Holiday Catty.

I paired the two punches with the Pick A Pumpkin product bundle also found in the Holiday Catalog on Page 51.

Additional products used are from the big Idea Book and Catalog!  I used the 3-D Layered Leaves embossing folder on the black cardstock, the Marbled Background stamp on the 2-1/4" punched circle!  The kitties bow is our 1/8" Calypso Coral ribbon.

Project Dimensions:
  • Card base - Thick Whisper White C/S - 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (Scored at 4-1/4")
  • 2nd Layer - Basic Black C/S - 4" x 5-1/4"

Stamper's Dozen Color Challenge Hop

Welcome to this month's Stamper's Dozen Blog hop!! This month we have a color palet for you to fall in love with!

Today's hop focuses on three colors:  Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, and Very Vanilla.  The first two are part of our 2017-2019 in colors!  They will only be with us for that two year period so be sure to get yours ASAP!!

We decided to focus on a color palate so that you could get all types of inspiration using the same colors!  For my project I decided to showcase the Icing On The Cake stamp set.  I also used the Marbled background stamp to give the swirled frosting affect! Couldn't resist some oval framelits to showcase the greeting!  I have provided you with measurements as well as a complete supply list below!  You can click on these supply items and place your order right now in my online store!


  • Card Layer - Thick Vanilla Cardstock - 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (Scored at 4-1/4")

Anything But The Holidays

Welcome to another fabulous blog hop!!  We are celebrating the fabulous products in our 2017 Holiday Catalog...however, all of our projects will NOT be holiday related!  We hope to show you the versatility in Stampin' Up!'s products.  Think outside the box and the possibilities are endless.

For my project, I thought I would share something old with something new!  I have used the Pocketful of Sunshine product bundle found in our big Idea Book & Catalog with the brand new stamp set called Half Full.  This second set was inspired by million dollar sales achiever Linda Bauwin!  I absolutely LOVE it!

Who can decide between red and white?  Why not have both!!?  Gave my "blue jeans" a bit of texture by adding the Burlap background stamp to the layer of dapper denim card stock.  Had to throw in the new Everyday Label Punch to affix the perfect greeting!

Want the supplies to make this project?  Print out the supply list below then click on the supplies to order them from me today!

Sneak Peek Holiday Projects!!

Hello stamping friends!

I know that you all love hearing from me AND I know you love LOTS of inspiration in just one post!  I decided to hop on board for another blog hop!  Our theme today is sneak peeks into the brand new Holiday Catalog that will go live for customers on September 1st.  I will have catalogs available for you after August 6th!  Be sure to contact me for your very own copy!!

As a Thailand trip achiever, I received numerous products from the holiday catalog as pillow gifts!  Given such, I am able to create and share these new products with you now!  It is one of the incredible perks of not only being a SU! demonstrator but also earning the fabulous incentive trip!!!

While I am excited about all of the incredible Christmas products in the new catalog, I decided to focus on an Autumn project for this hop.  The stamp set that is the focal point of this product suite is called, Painted Autumn.  It is a two-step stamping set and the images are absolutely gorgeous!

I've also included a video to show you how to create the textured background using our new embossing paste!

Thailand Trip Highlights

Well hello everyone!  Welcome to a special edition of the Thailand Achievers Blog Hop!

Where do I begin???  There is so much to share; how do I condense it into a few paragraphs and a few photos?  I guess I will have to do a follow-up post for you all so that I don't drown you in too much today!  LOL

Each of us is sharing the highlights of our recently attended incentive trip to Phuket, Thailand!!  Whoo Hoo!!!

I first want to thank my supportive husband & daughter for putting up with the constant barrage of friends/customers through our home several times per week!  Next, I'd like to give a huge shout out to my loyal customers!  Without all of you attending my classes and camps, I would not have earned this trip!  Last, BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, I need to thank my team!!  You keep me on my toes, I love supporting you all in your endeavors and I would love nothing more than to have you ALL join me on the next trip!!

You may or may not know that when you earn an incentive trip, Stampin' Up! provides the airfare and resort/cruise costs for me and one guest!  The 2017 trip brought us to Phuket Thailand.  The trip was actually a 6-day trip; however, I chose to extend it and included a stop over in the United Arab Emerites...specifically Dubai!!  My pal Shannon joined me on this around the world adventure and we had the time of our lives!!

Trip highlights:

  • Meeting up with friends from around the world
  • 5-Star resort on the Adaman Sea
  • Riding an Asian elephant
  • Holding a real, live Falcon -- the national bird of the United Arab Emerites
  • 4 x 4 dune bashing in a real red dune desert
  • Riding a camel in the desert
  • Getting LOTS of SU! product!!!
We made it to Thailand!!

Who can resist a trip to the Harley store?! Not us!  joined by my pals Shannon and Dawn & Richard Griffith!
