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!!
