Achievers/Incentive Trip

Greek Isles Blog Hop January 2019 — Amazing Life

Hello Stampers and friends!!  The excitement to share my creation for the Greek Isles Achievers blog hop is here! I love joining the hop with other Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world.  This particular group has achieved the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive trip to go on the Greek Isles Cruise this coming July!  **squeal**

GV_Blog_Hop_Banner_GreekIsles

Each month, we will be hopping together to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin' Up!® products from any of the current catalogs. I am native to Nebraska (U.S.), and I would love to help you, inspire you and answer any questions that help spark that creative vibe going through your veins.  And, no, you don't have to be creative to stamp!!  True statement!

Here is the card that I designed for our hop today!

 

GreekIslesHop-AmazingLifeRt-Lori-DSC09261

One of my favorite perks as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the opportunity to buy from the new upcoming catalogs before the catalogs actually go live for the general public.  I have a mix of products from each of the Occasions catalog and the Sale-A-Bration catalog, but this is the first time I've played with the Amazing Life Bundle (Amazing Life stamp set and coordinating Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies)!  Beware!  This stamp set renders lots of fun coloring aspects...I used Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blends and a touch of Balmy Blue Stampin' Write marker on the cake, but you can definitely have fun with the Aqua Painter and Watercolor Pencils, too!! This particular sentiment in the Amazing Life stamp set has lots of potential for coloring or paper piecing, but I chose to keep it without color so that the focus was on the cake.

 

GreekIslesHop-AmazingLife-FlaxStrands-Lori-DSC09267

I am in LOVE with the new Whisper White Flax Ribbon...it provides me with another way of using it...a subtle embellishment.  I cut the ribbon edging to use the loosened strands as "baker's twine" that has more of a rustic appearance.  The Gingham check pattern is really popular right now and we are gifted with 5 different colors in the Gingham Gala 6" x 6" designer series paper pack.  To give the Balmy Blue a little flare, I trimmed it with a strip of Pineapple Punch cardstock die cut with the Be Mine Stitched Edgelit.  Adding this trim is like icing on the cake when paired with the Rectangle Stitched die cut for the sentiment, don't you think?

Hello Stampers and friends!!  How was your Christmas holiday?  I hope everyone was able to enjoy a little bit of peace and joy.  I was able to relax a bit, but always had stamping on my mind.  The excitement to share my creation for the Alaskan Achievers blog hop was running through my mind...a lot! I love joining the hop with other Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world.  This particular group has achieved the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive trip to go on the Alaskan Cruise next July!  **squeal**

One of my favorite perks as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the opportunity to buy from the new upcoming catalogs before the catalogs actually go live for the general public.  I have a mix of products from each of the Occasions catalog and the Sale-A-Bration catalog in this creation...another fun aspect of creativity...doing it 'my way'!  Beware!  There is a lot of Silver goin' on with this creation...shiny and new!!

 

PictPerfBday-SequinPocketFlat-Lori-DSC06021

The sentiment comes from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set (available in the Occasions catalog), but the Designer Series Paper (Bubble & Fizz) you can earn for free with a $50 purchase during the best time of the year....Sale-A-Bration!  There are 3 other new products featured, as well...both from the Occasions catalog.  They are the Silver Embossing Paste, Silver Baker's Twine, and the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder.

Thailand Achievers Blog Hop -- Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek

 

HolidayCatalog-ThailandAchieversHop-Header

Welcome to the Thailand Trip Achievers Blog Hop for July 2017!!

I'm baaaack from Thailand; and I am sooo grateful for the amazing trip to a 3rd world country.  A trip that I'm pretty sure I would not have planned to take in my lifetime.  I have so many wonderful customers, amazing team members, and loving family and friends to thank extensively for helping me achieve my goal...to earn a trip to Thailand for my hubby and me.  THANK YOU!!

Would you like to take a trip like this just by doing what you LOVE to do?  I can help you!  Stampin' Up! really spoils the demonstrators...I can't even begin to describe just how incredibly appreciated I felt during this trip.  Let me share with you some of the spoiling that we experienced...this doesn't even begin to tip the iceberg.

 

BalconyRoom-BeachPan-July2017Lori-IMG_3667

This was is a panoramic view from the 3rd floor balcony...breathtaking and very grateful for the best view on the resort!  Listening to the sounds of the waves crack as they hit the shore was very relaxing...definitely took advantage of the peacefulness and serenity. This resort was HUGE and we basically had the whole place to ourselves.  So, I felt very much 'at home' running into all my friends each day...and, making new friends, too.

 

PillowGift-Lori-DSC05314

I'm going to share with you some of the awesome gifts that we received each night...they were packaged in brown wrapping and wrapped with some 3/8" Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon, adorned with Mini Tassels, and accompanied by a Thailand tag.  Christmas excitement arrived as a 'pillow gift' every night!

 

GiftToteBag-Lori-IMG_3583

Here was the wonderful Tote Bag that we received on Thursday night....big and sturdy enough to haul all my pillow gifts, prize patrol, card swaps, and a few souvenirs.  It came in very handy to carry on the plane home with me.  Stampin' Up! is always thinking!

 

 

This was the gorgeous gift we received Friday night after coming back from an amazing Closing Ceremony at the Blue Elephant.  Thai cuisine and handcrafted souvenirs for purchase lined the largest outdoor tent I have ever seen in my life.  Check out the special touch of Stampin' Up!'s logo silk printed on the inside of the box....not a beat missed for making me feel very much appreciated.

 

Gift-ElephantNecklace-Lori-IMG_3728

AND, the little Elephant charm necklace was handed to us as we departed the Closing Ceremony.  "To love what we do and share what we love".  Warms my heart with all the passion I have for what I do, to share with everyone, and for this wonderful company.

 

Gifts-FreeProducts-Lori-IMG_3770

Soooo, the most exciting gift we received, outside of all the FREE product (yes, TONS of new product) given to us through the week was theeee most beautiful ...waaiiiit for it!

 

HolidayCatalogSelfie-Lori-IMG_3298

....Holiday Catalog EVER!!  OH. MY. GOSH!!!  We were all gushing through the pages that morning during the Opening General Session.  Of course, they waited until towards the end of the session, because, you know....no one was raising their head to pay attention to what was said after these babies reached our fingertips.  Haha! 

 

Would you like to see a sneak peak of a card we were able to create using brand new products from the Holiday catalog??  No?  Maybe?  Okay...yeesssss!  I thought you would.  Feast your eyes on the "Joy" card showing all kinds of beautiful shine.
