Expressions In Ink Amazing in Pink

I realize we are still waiting for this amazing Expressions in Ink designer paper to get back in stock (Stampin’ Up!® is forecasting the end of June), but I couldn’t wait to share with you the card I made which was inspired by a swap I got in Maui. I LOVED Terry Brinkmann’s swap card so much, because it is simple yet stunning. So it became the inspiration for my team’s “Top 10 in Sales” cards.

Click here to get directions for making this eye-catching, amazing card. I was inspired by a swap from Terry Brinkmann and used the Expressions in Ink Designer Paper, the fun Create with Friends Stamp Set, the Painted Labels Dies, the Dragonflies Punch, the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folders, and the 21-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum.

I paired up this paper with Jennifer Cotton’s “Million Dollar” Create with Friends Stamp Set in a set of cards that I shared back on May 14th. And I just had to use it again on today’s card. The sentiment pairings are just too perfect. Below are details if you’d like to make this card yourself.

I bet this would look lovely with the other patterns in this designer paper pack too! Oh gosh,…now I have to make more. I’ll have to wait until after my Garage Sale, though. Today is day 3 of 4. And it’s been fun to see so many crafting goodies get new homes. A big thank you to everyone who came so far and who will be coming today and tomorrow.

Can I Brag About My Team?

Yesterday, some of the members of my Stampers With ART group who live near me gathered for a party at Cheryl Lee’s house. My sales milestone was the reason for the party. But after so much staying at home during this past year’s pandemic, we had the urge to gather just to see each other anyway. Thank you to all those that were able to show up. It was such a great time! 

There’s always a good reason to get together with friends.  - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

AND we were able to celebrate Cheryl, too! She just reached her $200,000 Sales Milestone last month. We surprised her with flowers and a few cards.

Cheryl made her $200,000 sales milestone!  - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

So since I’m on the topic of bragging about my fabulous team, below are their amazing cards from our latest swap. I’m blessed pretty much daily by the creativity that is shared in our Stampers With ART Community. And swap time is even more exciting, because the cards aren’t just in photos in our Facebook group. Receiving the actual cards made by fellow team members is a huge motivator to participate in the swaps.

Check out all these fabulous cards made with either new products in the 2021-22 Annual Catalog or products that carried over into this publication. (Click here to find links to the current catalogs.) Those that made each card are mentioned in the watermarks of the photos.

Maui 2021 SU Incentive Trip

I just got back from our trip to Maui, the 2021 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip. This time I took my husband and our two boys. This was the third incentive trip that Nick and Luke have been on with us, and we all had such an amazing time.

With the pandemic came many aspects that made this trip a very unique one. The COVID testing requirements before coming into Hawaii made many of us travelers nervous. There were many achievers who cashed out of the trip instead of attending because of the uncertainties AND because of travel restrictions. And it was sad not to see so many of my friends that I love and miss so much. But it was good to catch up with the many that DID end up coming. And it was so wonderful to be able to share this vacation with my family. 

Here we are at the airport. Nick on the left is now 15-1/2. And Luke on the right is 14-1/4 (It’s amazing how much they’ve grown since I started blogging in 2013!). We left the morning of the 15th and arrived in Maui in the late afternoon. And with the five hour time difference, it felt more like 10 o’clock at night for us when it was only 5 PM. So we had quite a few nights of early to bed and early to rise.

We had a fabulous time in Maui! Click here to see photos from this 2021 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here we are after arriving, checking out our stunning view and beautiful room. Stampin’ Up! really makes sure we are pampered.

(Oh! Be sure to CLICK HERE to see photos of the gifts, goodies, prizes and swaps I received and shared in my Wednesday, May 26th post. Looking through all those photos will REALLY give you a good idea of how well we were treated. I’ve been on many trips, but I’m blown away each and every time.) And yes, that bathroom was incredible!

I think I woke by 4 AM on Sunday the 16th which really wasn’t bad when you consider it was 9 AM in Minnesota. Hahaha! Because we were awake early, we explored the resort a bit. This photo was taken in the lobby area of the resort.

Then we attended the Welcome Brunch hosted by SU and were fed well! If I remember correctly, I had an omelet and some fresh tropical fruit. We were seated with Hattie Nelson and her husband Steve, and Janet Wakeland and her husband Doug. I love these ladies!

SU gifted all achievers and their one guest a spa treatment of their choice. So Tim and I went off to get massages in the early afternoon. Our kids spent time at the pool during this time and had enough sun by the time we were done, so I took in some pool time – hung out with Natalie & John Travis and Lorri & Dan Heiling, and then took over Natalie’s chair when she had to leave.

My guys and I ended that day by going over to explore the Shops at Wailea (just a short walk from the resort), getting dinner and eating it outside the stores, and walking back only to fall asleep early again.

Tuesday began with our first of two Stampin’ Up! gifted excursions. This one was the Raft & Snorkel Excursion. We rode across some impressive waves, snorkeled in the Molokini Crater and another beach area, and saw colorful fish, beautiful coral, and swam up close and personal with a large Sea Turtle!

That evening we went to dinner with Elaine and Adam Schader at Nalu’s South Shore Grill in Kihei. The food was wonderful! And the company was even better.

Tuesday the 18th brought more achieving demonstrators (those who either earned one of the two year’s worth of trips or cashed out of one if they earned both). So we took it easy that day and hung out by the pool. Many others did the same thing, and it was such a fun and social day. (You can see Monika, her hubby Braton, Kay, her hubby Steve, Natalie right next to me, and Elaine (who was excited because her kids were flying in that day to join them).

In the late afternoon I met up with my new friend Faith who was also was vacationing in Maui that week. She came to our resort lobby! Too fun. I also hung out in the lobby afterwards a bit to say hello to Cheryl Hamilton (a fellow demonstrator from Hawaii) and several on her team who came bearing gifts (I shared the ones I got on May 26th)! What a fun surprise!

And then that evening we gathered outdoors for the Aloha Carnival to socialize and taste some fun foods.

We took to the beach at 7 AM Wednesday morning to get a good spot in the front row. We stayed there for the most of the early part of the day because the weather and water was wonderful! Tim and Nick did some paddle boarding and Nick practiced his flipping.

Later that day I visited the Hospitality Room to spin for a prize and take photos of sample cards.

And then that evening we went to eat dinner at the Pint & Cork at the Shops at Wailea.

Thursday morning we went on our 2nd of two excursions. This one was the Waterfalls and Rainforest Hike in East Maui. We were struggling in the morning with what shoes to wear, and I’m glad the guide told my boys to NOT wear their nice tennis shoes and put on their water shoes instead, because we got VERY muddy, wet and dirty. But oh, was it fun! I’m glad we invested in those waterproof cellphone pouches, too. I didn’t bring my phone into the water during the snorkeling like my boys did, but I definitely made use of this phone holder on THIS rainy excursion. Look at how lush everything is! And what was even more fun is it was just the Schader family and ours in our group.

See that sign? Yep…we crossed it on foot by aiming our toes into the flow.

The colors of the flowers and vegetation were so bright. Thankfully my husband took some great flower photos, because I failed in that area.

This was the first waterfall we came to. And guess what? Many of us jumped in including me! I’m so proud of myself. I came up coughing because water went up my nose, but this 52-year-old did it! LOL

And this was the second waterfall. For this one, we all just waded in and swam! It was amazing. And our guide got us to every waterfall faster than the other groups. So we got to experience most of this fun adventure with very few extra people around.

That evening my husband Tim was pretty worn out because he pulled some muscles in his rib area (we are thinking during the snorkeling excursion). So he relaxed in the room a lot when we got back. And Nick, Luke and I went exploring through the resort shops. We ended up getting our dinner at one of them and ate it next to the beach so we could catch the sunset (which we had kept missing all the other nights).

What a fantastic ending to a fun day.

By the way, though he didn’t feel good for several days, Tim had it checked out with the doctor when we cam home and is fine now. 

Friday started out with an early spot at the beach again. But the wind picked up and it got a bit cloudy. So we didn’t stay there long. Susan Campfield took this photo of my hubby and me before she took off for her spa appointment.

After leaving the windy beach, I spent some time checking out all the swaps on display in the hospitality room and grabbed my swapped out cards after spinning the wheel for a prize (we got to do this five different days). Click here to see gifts and prizes AND the swap cards I got and all of them on display. 

Susan came to our room so she and I could do a Facebook Live with our team members. It was so fun to connect and share all our swaps and goodies.

And then Tim and I joined Scott Nielsen (“finance guy” at Stampin’ Up! as he puts it), his wife Pamela, Bonnie O’Neill (fellow demonstrator), and her husband Brian for dinner that evening at Tommy Bahamas. We had lots of fun and the food was excellent!

Our last full day was one more chance to catch the sun. So we got a decent spot poolside by the volleyball net and spent a good part of the day there, going down the slides and snorkeling near the beach where we saw even more colorful fish and another huge turtle that swam right under us!

We couldn’t agree on lunch. So Nick and I dined in the restaurant overlooking the pool. And Tim and Luke had food delivered to them down at the pool. We didn’t sit together, but we could see each other and waved a few times.

The last event before needing to pack and head out the next day was the Luau. The theme was “white out” which means everyone was to wear white. Before heading in, a bunch of us current and former members of the Paper Pumpkin Advisor group gathered to chat and take a group photo.

And then we joined all the others for a magnificent evening. I was so relaxed by the end of my vacation that I didn’t take many photos. But it was wonderful and so much fun. (Tim took this photo of Susan and me before the sun went down.)

We got flowers added to our hair if we wanted. We were served a multi-course dinner. And we were entertained by talented dancers, musicians, story-tellers, and fire-dancers.

Sunday gave us one last opportunity to connect during breakfast.

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.

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).

OnTour Event Card & Gift

Tonight I’ll be attending a fun, 3-hour online Stampin’ Up! event called OnTour along with several other demonstrators. This event and many others that have been taking place this month are designed to kickstart and support the launch of the 2021–2022 Annual Catalog in our businesses. I’m looking forward to all the connecting and sharing that this event promises. And I’ve heard lots of positive reviews from those on my team that have attended other sessions this month already. Yay!

I gifted all those on my team who took part in OnTour a pack of Pearls and a Z-Fold card that I made with products from the Sand & Sea Suite.

I gifted all those on my team who took part in the April 2021 OnTour Event a pack of Pearls and a Z-Fold card that I made with products from the Sand & Sea Suite: Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set and the Seashells 3-D Embossing Folder. Access directions, more photos, measurements, and links to the products so you can make them, too. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock
    • 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” scored parallel to short side at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4”
    • 1″ x 2-3/4″
  • Basic White Cardstock
  • Just Jade Cardstock
    • 3-1/8″ x 4-3/8″
    • 1″ x 2-3/4″
  • Mint Macaron Cardstock
    • 3″ x 4-1/4″

Directions 

  • Emboss the Mint Macaron piece. (I made 80 cards. So to do the embossing step quicker, I embossed larger Mint Macaron pieces – 4-1/4″ x 6″ – and then cut them in half.)

I gifted all those on my team who took part in the April 2021 OnTour Event a pack of Pearls and a Z-Fold card that I made with products from the Sand & Sea Suite: Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set and the Seashells 3-D Embossing Folder. Access directions, more photos, measurements, and links to the products so you can make them, too. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Punch the left ends of the 1″ tall pieces. Stamp the sentiment on the white one. Layer these together so the Just Jade piece peeks out on top and on the left a bit.
  • Then attach the sentiment piece to the embossed Mint Macaron piece using a Dimensional at the banner cut end and Seal+ at the other. Trim off any excess. Add this all to the 3-1/8″ x 4-3/8″ Just Jade layer.
  • If you wish to make the inside layer as I did, then click here to download the sheet I printed off for my cards. Print it onto Basic White regular cardstock (or just printer paper if your printer can’t take cardstock), and cut each section to 3″ x 4-1/4″ pieces.
    • OR…stamp something onto the 3″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Basic White using images from the stamp set.
  • Adhere the 3″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Basic White to the inside of the card so that it is centered. Close the card and adhere the embossed layered section just to the folded left half so it is centered on the card AND so that it covers the white layer on the inside.

I gifted all those on my team who took part in the April 2021 OnTour Event a pack of Pearls and a Z-Fold card that I made with products from the Sand & Sea Suite: Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set and the Seashells 3-D Embossing Folder. Access directions, more photos, measurements, and links to the products so you can make them, too. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Add Wink of Stella and pearls around the sentiment strip area.
  • Sign the card with the Just Jade Marker if you wish.

Silver Elite Retreat December 2020

If you’ve been following my blog posts over the years, you’ve seen me share photos of a special weekend getaway that my parents and I have hosted at their place for my achieving team members at the Silver Elite and above title. But like many events this year, our Silver Elite Retreat was held virtually (on Zoom) to keep us socially distant during this pandemic. And today I’m excited to share with you a couple glimpses of the fun we had on Saturday and photos of the gifts I gave to the well-deserving Cheryl Lee and Nancy Forsberg!

My husband, Tim delivered their baskets of goodies that morning. And I personalized them by including beverages and treats that I hoped they would enjoy. 

Cheryl’s basket included tortilla chips, salsa, Bacardi Limon (two bottles) and a chilled Diet Coke.

Nancy’s (and Kayla’s – they are a mom/daughter team) included Doritos, Sun Chips, a mini champagne, Moscato, and Vodka.

I told them they couldn’t open or dig through it until we started the Zoom at 10 AM. ?

Here is what else was in each of their baskets: their own personalized insulated beverage bag,…

But the most fun part about the baskets were the new products debuting in the January-June Mini Catalog and make-n-take supplies prepped and ready to put together.

After breaking for lunch we gathered again and put together our Hydrangea Hill Suite projects. (I’m so excited to share these suites with all of YOU.)

Then we got creative and did our own card designs with the supplies from the upcoming You Are Amazing Project Kit.They finished their cards. I did not. And I forgot to take photos! Oops! Maybe it’s because we had enjoyed our beverages at this point in the day? Hahaha.

We took a break for dinner. And when we returned, we chatted about all kinds of things. I loved that we were able to make this event possible. I’m so very excited for how far these gals have taken their businesses. They really deserved this pampering!

PS…Tamra Davis from TaDa Moments provided the personalized bags and etched blocks. Thanks Tamra!

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here is a bit of news from Stampin’ Up! that was shared with us late Thursday night. Some of you may have already heard. 

“We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. And we are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White! Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. It’s always hard to say goodbye, but we are excited about the new Basic White product line and we encourage you to try it out!”
