I just returned with my family from the 2021 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip in Maui. We had a wonderfully relaxing time. And we were very spoiled and pampered. A huge thank you to all of you who support me in my Stampin’ Up! business!!
I’ll share more photos from our trip this weekend. But today I am sharing swap cards I received, the swap boards, the gifts given to me by Stampin’ Up! before & during the trip, gifts I got from a few other fellow demonstrators, and a fun way to make a folded paper wallet from a 12” x 12” sheet of designer paper. (A big thank you to Jackie Ross for sharing her version of this in the 2021 Maui Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip swap.)
I just showed live on YouTube about an hour ago step-by-step directions for creating this paper wallet (with coordinating note cards) using the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, the Perfect Plants Dies, the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack, and the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Paper. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can get updates when I share and go live).

Note Card Wallet & Cards
Swap Cards I Received
Gifts I Received From a Few Fellow Demonstrators
This is from my upline, Susan Campfield. Inside this handy-dandy tool holder was adhesives, a pen, and cash (half of it from her and the other half sent to her by my team members: extra given towards a special gift they gave me for reaching my $1,000,000 Sales Milestone on May 4th. And I’ve been so busy with the launch of the new catalog and getting ready for this Maui trip that I haven’t shared photos of that gift yet! oops. I’ll need to do that soon).
This gift is from my sweet friend, Anne Oshiro.
And these goodies are from fellow demonstrators (who live in Maui), Cheryl Hamilton and her team members who came to the Grand Wailea Resort to welcome all of us!
