Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop -- Full of Thankfulness


GV Blog Header-Mediterranean

Welcome to the Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop for September 2016. 

This will be our final blog hop recognizing the achievement of earning Stampin' Up's Grand Vacation, the Mediterranean Cruise, which is why the main theme for the hop this month -- Thankfulness -- is so very important and close to my heart.  I really could not have achieved it without all of YOU!  My wonderful and loyal customers (whom I call friends), my dear and loving family and friends, and to my AH-mazing Stampin' Up! family that we call "Lori's Dream Team".  There are no exact mix of the English vocabulary that will express enough how much gratitude I, simply put...THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.  Starting next month (October) WE (yep! me, too!) are going to start the Thailand Achievers blog hop! Many, many thanks to Stampin' Up!® for the opportunity to earn and achieve such wonderful trips.

 Creative Tips:

  • The Early Espresso cardbase (8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4") sets the tone for the Fall season we've been experiencing in our area.  ;)
  • I love using the Kraft Cardstock because it is a heavier paper than our traditional cardstock.  Plus, it adds a different color tone to the mix.  Using the Flourishes Thinlits, die cut three leaves from Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Tangerine Tango.  Set in place using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Our Copper Embossing Powder is super AH-mazing, too!  I can't get over how smooth the end result is.  The sentiment comes from the "One Big Meaning" stamp set and has the PERFECT sentiment for this card that is created for you....stamped and heat embossed onto a strip of Vellum Cardstock.


  • Add a strand of Burlap Ribbon between the sentiment layers and the leaves.  Attach the focal layer to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
