Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Creations

I have forty-one…yes FORTY-ONE cards to share with you today that are put together with the Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Cards AND the coordinating Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (which can currently be a free pick with with a $50+ order this month).

I designed and put together twenty using a half pack of the M&M cards and shared them at my Silver Elite Retreat. Then I gave everyone supplies to create the same ones. Paper crafters love to be creative though. So many made variations of my designs.

After scrolling through the photos of my 20 card designs, keep going to see the variations from Vy Tran, Kayla Cory, and Margo Tessman (my mom).

The only extra product we added into the card designs were either 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ or 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ layers of Basic White Cardstock. The 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ Basic White was used for layers under the 3″ x 4″ Sweet Thoughts cards and for inside layers. The 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Basic White was used for inside layers. And then I used tools and adhesives of course.

I love how Dimensionals create shadow. Below I added Dimensionals under the butterfly layer on the left card and under the Basic White layer (AND under the birthday sticker) on the right card. Oh! That’s a fun bonus…the Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Cards come with sheets of coordinating stickers. So you don’t need to add in any outside ribbons, embellishments or stamps to fancy up your creations.

On these next two cards I added Dimensionals under the Basic White layer on this “Dream Big” card and under the M&M card layer with the card on the right. Then I added some stickers from the M&M card pack as decorations on the insides.

For these two I added Dimensionals under the Basic White layer on this “Love” card and under the M&M card layer with the card on the right. I also added some stickers from the M&M card pack as decorations on the outsides and insides.

The landscape card on the left with the 4″ x 6″ M&M card has no Dimensionals. The one on the right has them under the Basic White layer. I added the copper sticker with the word smile to the paintbrush sticker, then trimmed it up before adding it to the inside of the card. The sticker on the inside of the landscape card is one flower that was cut into two pieces.

These two are quite simple…no Dimensionals & only one sticker added to the inside of one of the cards.

This “Hello Beautiful” card also uses no Dimensionals. But the butterfly one I turned into an easel card by adding an extra score/fold half-way through the card base front at 2-1/8″ and attaching the butterfly M&M card only to the lower half so it can prop up behind the My Heart sticker that was attached with Dimensionals to the inside.

These cards below also got an extra score line at 2-1/8″ to make them into z-fold cards. I added the Basic White layers to the insides first to make it easier to line up when adding the layers on the front. The blue card has no Dimensionals. The “world” card has them between the M&M card layer and the Basic White layer.

This “sunshine” card is similar to the “world” card above. For the “paintbrush” card I added Dimensionals between the M&M card and the Basic White layer. And on the inside I added two stickers strategically to cover the words that were on the floral & lined M&M layer.

This top card is super simple…Dimensionals under the M&M floral card, and then two added stickers (the “hello” and the flower on the inside).

The second one involves a bit more thinking though. I cut the 4″ x 6″ M&M card just to the left of the white vertical stripe. Then I attached just that right portion to the card base keeping the left portion lined up to help center it all on the front. I removed the left portion, trimmed the front to separate the right side from the left just where the right layer ends, and added flower sticker on the left front to represent asterisks before each word. And then I adhered the right side completely down, opened the left and adhered the remaining left portion of that M&M card to the inside. And I finished it all off with the “you are” sticker.

These 20 cards I shared use up a whole pack of the Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (which remember… can currently be a free pick with with a $50+ order this month). An entire pack of Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Cards would produce 40 cards, so you may want to invest in two of the cards/envelope packs.

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

We had a birthday to celebrate Saturday night…my youngest Luke is turning 17 on the 7th! So we celebrated with a family party. The date was agreed upon on just last week Monday which only gave us five days to pull it together. And teenagers are busy AND aren’t the most chatty creatures when they aren’t in the mood to talk. So it took me until Thursday night to have a decent conversation with Luke. 🤣

Friday morning I shopped on Amazon for decor and found a talented local cake maker that could fit our order in. And it all came together! I’m thankful to my husband who ran all the errands, Amazon for speedy delivery, and Diedre Zelin (the gal who was able to make a fun cake with only 24 hours notice). Here are a couple photos from the fun celebration. (I’m at the party, but I was taking the photo. So you don’t see me.)

January ’24 Silver Elite Retreat

My annual Silver Elite Retreat took place last weekend. This is an special event for those in my Stampers With ART group who are at the Silver Elite title or higher. To be Silver Elite, a demonstrator must have at least $7,200 US in rolling 12-month sales and five direct team members with at least one of them holding the title of Silver* or more.

This year instead of going to my parents’ cabin, I hosted it at my house in Andover, MN and my mom came here to help me put it on. My husband and my boys left to enjoy a guys’ weekend away at a hotel in Saint Paul so that us six paper crafters could make use of the entire house. It worked out well. We had space for everyone to sleep, all my tools and extra supplies were on hand, the crafting area was well-lit, and I could even photograph projects afterwards using the space in my studio.

Vy was the only one who lived quite a distance away. She flew in Thursday early afternoon. She’s been to Minnesota before and didn’t desire to shop the Mall of America or anything. So we basically just hung out at the house all day. It was super cold outside anyway.

On Friday we ventured out to a local bakery/sandwich shop called Krown Bakery in Anoka. They have very tasty gluten-free desserts. So we each had a sandwich and a treat.

By about 3:00 PM on Friday Cheryl, Nancy and Kayla had arrived. And my guys (now home from school and done with work) were out the door. It was fun to catch up and we talked for quite some time. I also gave everyone their bag of make-n-take supplies and gifts (see below for what they received).

Everyone settled into and unpacked, we had dinner and then we dove into our projects. It was fun to see the looks on their faces when I informed them we were making 20 cards in one evening. But there was relief when they saw that those cards were quick and easy creations with the Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Cards and Cards/Envelopes. In the end, there were close to 100 completed cards on the kitchen island! I will share my 20 cards (and some of the variations these gals came up with) on my blog sometime next week.

Vy really got creative with her cards (the unicorn pjs helped!) and even used the new Glass Mat Studio and hobby blade to give her butterfly wings a bit of a lift.

I bought and provided TOO much food. We were never without and had lots of leftovers (which my family is still working on). This is a photo of the food we had out for lunch on Saturday.

Crafting was a majority of the retreat weekend. But we also laughed a lot and shared ideas with each other…creative and business. Kayla taught me how to set up break out rooms for Zoom AND she showed me how to create logo wear. You may see some of that appearing on the shop section of my blog soon! Hahaha

Saturday we worked on the more time-consuming cards. Above is Cheryl, Kayla and Nancy. And below is me, my mom and Vy. These photos were taken when we put together Outside-In Fun Fold card with products in the Forever Love Suite. For those of you who catch my weekly free Online Paper Crafting Classes on YouTube or Facebook, these are the cards I’ll be sharing how to make this Wednesday, January 31st. Hope you can tune in!

During this retreat we each made:

  • A Star Column Card that we made with the Ice Cream Swirl Bundle and some Perennial Lavender Designer Paper – cards that I shared a few days ago on January 22nd. (Be sure to check them out.)
  • 20 cards from the Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Cards and Cards/Envelopes that I plan to share with you on February 5th.
  • Two Outside-In Fun Fold cards that I’ll share this week on Wednesday.
  • And two other cards with this Forever Love Suite that I’ll share soon after.

Taco night is a tradition now. I think we’ve had tacos at every Silver Elite Retreat since we first started these in February of 2018 (this year is our 7th annual). It’s Cheryl’s favorite meal, she has been at every retreat, and what’s not to love about tacos?!

With the trip my son and I took out to Los Angeles, I didn’t have a lot of time to make a lot of things for the girls’ gifts, but I DID get these stamped invitations out in the mail in late December/early January.

Of course I had to use my favorite stamp set, Layering Leaves for the imagery and front sentiment. I paired this with the new Layered Florals Embossing Folder for the Basic White Cardstock layer, some Vellum Cardstock along the left edge and within the punched leaves, some Gold Foil cut with the Stylish Shapes positioned under the 2″ punched sentiment circle, and some Pretty Peacock/Gold Ribbon and Pretty Peacock Foiled Gems. (See below for a visual list for these supplies linked to my online store.)

Star Column Cards With Perennial Lavender & Ice Cream Swirl

I spent this past weekend hosting my annual Silver Elite Retreat for a few demonstrators in my Stampers With ART group. These demonstrators (titled at Silver Elite or higher) work hard to earn their title, so I like to spoil them a little bit. I’ll share photos and more details from this event soon. But today I thought I’d share one of the make-n-take cards from our weekend event.

It’s another Star Column Card!
It’s put together in a similar way as those I demonstrated on 1/17/24. But this time I used the Perennial Lavender Designer Paper to accent the panels of the Basic White Cardstock base. I also used the Ice Cream Swirl Bundle to create the main images on the front and back of the card.

Star Column cards are so easy to make from two long sheets of cardstock. I shared five of these cards made with the Perennial Lavender Designer Paper, the Ice Cream Swirl Stamps and Dies, and other coordinating Stampin’ Up!® product. Visit my 1/22/24 blog post for details. Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements…

  • Basic White Cardstock
    • (2) 5-1/2” x 11” scored parallel to the short at ½”, 1 ½”, 2 ½”, 3 ½”, 4 ½”, 5 ½”, 6 ½”, 7 ½”, 8 ½”, 9 ½” and 10 ½” for the card base
    • 1” x 5 ½” for the connecting piece
    • 2″ Circle for the back
    • 3/4″ x 2-1/2″ for the sentiment strip
    • Scrap for die-cutting the ice cream swirl base
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting the ice cream cone
  • Perennial Lavender Designer Paper (pattern for panels)
    • (12) 7/8″ x 5-3/8″
    • (2) 1/2” x 1-1/2” scored halfway at 3/4″ for connecting the sentiment circle to the card
    • (2) 2” x 1-1/2” scored halfway at 3/4” for connecting the cone to the card
  • Perennial Lavender Designer Paper (pattern for ice cream)
    • Scrap for die-cutting the ice cream swirl
  • Cardstock in two other coordinating colors
    • Scraps for die-cutting the ice cream swirls

After assembling the card base, I cut the strips of Perennial Lavender Designer Paper. I kept the strips in order then attached them to the 12 panels of the card base so the design was continuous and flowed well.

Star Column cards are so easy to make from two long sheets of cardstock. I shared five of these cards made with the Perennial Lavender Designer Paper, the Ice Cream Swirl Stamps and Dies, and other coordinating Stampin’ Up!® product. Visit my 1/22/24 blog post for details. Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I attached the purple die-cut designer paper ice cream swirl to the white ice cream base. Then I filled in the spaces with die-cut pieces from a couple other coordinating cardstock colors (Blackberry Bliss and Highland Heather in this case).

I stamped the cone with Crumb Cake ink. After die-cutting, I used a Blending Brush to add more Crumb Cake ink near the edges of the image to create shading and the look of depth. I adhered these together. Then I added the sentiment strip with Dimensionals.

For the strip, I punched each end with the Banners Pick a Punch. I inked up the sentiment with Blackberry Bliss ink, lighted the ink of the top half with a dauber, exhaled on the ink to re-moisten it, stamped the image on the strip, and then painted on Wink of Stella to the tops of the letters.

(For the sentiment on the 2″ circle on the back, I did the same thing but lightened the ink on the bottom instead of the top.)

Then I connected this circle and the cone in the same way I did with my other front and back elements on the other Star Column cards I shared on 1/17/24.

And I finished by embellishing the card with a few gems.

Just like those I shared before…this card can fold flat and fit into Stampin’ Up!’s medium A2 size envelope.

This is another version I made with a different pattern from the designer paper pack and a different color combo for the ice cream.

And here are photos of three finished cards from a few who attended the retreat this weekend. All of them added Wink of Stella to their ice cream (which looks much better in person…it didn’t photo very well).

Those who made the cards are named in the watermark of each photo.

OnStage@Home November 2023 & Sale

Stampin’ Up!’s Virtual OnStage@Home took place yesterday. Demonstrators from all over the world took part, and the event was amazing! We were all able to access new publications that will debut in January and see many of these products in action through demonstrations and creative samples.

In addition to the fun of seeing new products, we also celebrated Stampin’ Up!’s 35th anniversary! They shared images of past catalogs, which really showed how products have changed and how events have evolved over the years. They discussed challenges we have faced and overcome, and talked about the global growth of the company.

I have enjoyed being part of this company for nearly 24 of those 35 years. It’s my passion to share the art of paper crafting, and I’m very grateful that once again I have, through the support of so many, ranked among the top-achieving demonstrators. On November 1st Stampin’ Up! announced these top achievers, and I’m just now coming off of Cloud Nine to share my rankings with you. (These are based on my performance during the 2022-23 Stampin’ Up! year.)

  • 2023 US Overall #8
    • 2023 US Team Building #11
    • 2023 US Sales #10
    • 2023 US Leadership #8
  • 2023 Incentive Trip Achiever!
It's been a great year! Thank you so much to all you have supported me. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Disclaimer: Less than 1% of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators earn these milestones.

The next OnStage event will be held in Houston, United States; Rotterdam, Netherlands; and Melbourne, Australia in March 2024. SU is making changes and is in the process of shifting their event calendar. And in this transition the November and the March OnStage events were too close together to have them both be held in person. That was the reason this one was held virtually.

Because my team members live throughout the U.S., I mailed my gifts to those who registered for this event. I sent them each a team ribbon, parts and pieces from the new Best Destinations kit, a note of appreciation, and this engraved “Stamp Your Art Out” shammy.

It was sad not to see people in-person, but I’ve booked my ticket for Houston already! Registration for this next OnStage event runs November 14 through January 31. Will I see you there? I can’t wait!

CREATIVE CONNECTIONS 2023

About 300 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators gathered this past Sunday in Medina, Minnesota for Creative Connections, a yearly event by leader demonstrators for their demonstrator team members. Stampin’ Up!’s Logan Sutherland and CEO Sara Douglass attended this event which made it EXTRA special this year!

Creative Connections 2023! - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here are a few glimpses of the fun. Twenty-seven of my team members were able to attend in person and here we are with Sara and Logan for a group photo.

2023 Incentive Trip & Norway Adventures

My husband Tim & I just returned from the fabulous 2023 Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip* – a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas! What a wonderful time we had with fellow achieving demonstrators, their guests, and those from the home office of Stampin’ Up!

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

(We got sick just after arriving home on Sunday evening and have been quite tired these past couple days, so my apologies for the delay in posts. Because of this I won’t be doing a live video today. AND…I just opened my May 2023 Paper Pumpkin kit that arrived while we were away, so my apologies for the delay with posting about that as well.)

I shared the Scotland half our trip on May 21st. You can click here to read and see what we did in that week prior to the Norway Cruise. Today’s post shares the cruise-half of our 2 week European vacation.

5/20/23 Saturday

We left Edinburgh early and arrived back in London around 9 AM Saturday morning. The six of us (Jennifer, David, Sherry, Donna, Tim and I) took The Tube, London’s underground train to get to within walking distance of the Hilton Metropole where we would stay that night along with many other trip achievers. We couldn’t check in yet, so we dropped our bags off and joined Jennifer and David for lunch at The Heron, a restaurant with an English pub AND a Thai restaurant. We ate out in their back garden and the Thai food was very good!

Then we got adventurous. We took The Tube to Tower Bridge, which was quite impressive.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And then we hopped on the trains again and went to the Camden Market in Camden Town. There were popup shopping stands and TONS of people everywhere. It was colorful, diverse and loud. We didn’t stay too long, because we were quite tired by now and wanted to get back and check into our hotel rooms. But it was an adventure getting back to the hotel, as the train stations were very crowded, which tired us out even more.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

That evening after getting settled into our rooms and resting, we joined Jennifer and David again and ended up at Al Balad, a Lebanese restaurant recommended to us by a hotel employee. The food was amazing!

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We went back to the hotel and visited with some fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators before calling it a night.

5/21/23 Sunday

We had breakfast with Jennifer, David, Michelle Litwiller, Michelle’s husband Ryan, and Kylie and Bruno Bertucci that next morning.

I had “fried” my flat iron when we were in Scotland. So it didn’t work anymore. And I assumed going forward that I would be wearing my hair topper or going without with flat hair. But Anne Oshiro overheard me asking at the front desk for a hair care store that might be open on a Sunday morning. And so she loaned me hers and told me I could use it the remainder of the trip! ❤️

After curling my hair & packing up, we checked out and met up with Stampin’ Up! achievers downstairs while waiting for transportation to the pier. We were on the last bus to arrive, and quite hungry again by the time we got on the ship. So after checking out our room and grabbing the SeaPass cards,…

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

…we found food at the Windjammer (the all you can eat buffet) around 3:30 PM. Then it was time to explore and visit. Silvia Werner and her daughter Carolin showed us how to get our beverage cups. We also visited with a few other demonstrators from Germany including Alexandra Grape and Irene Wendlandt. We took off for dinner because we were assigned to the 5:30 time slot. You can guess we weren’t that hungry after just eating a couple hours ago. But we were curious who our table mates would be. Our actual table mates never showed up. But we were near Mary Deathridge, her husband, Amy Koenders, and her husband. So they included us in their conversation and we had a great evening sharing & learning about their Ireland adventures the week before.

Stampin’ Up!’s Welcome Reception started at 7:00 PM. Lots of people were there but it was hard to hear because the music was very loud. We chatted with Sam Hammond and her husband Chris.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We also met up and chatted with Anne Oshiro again and her two daughters.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Tim and I then found a quieter place over by the food and sat down, We were stuffed from eating so much already, but we managed to taste a few of the desserts.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We then joined Alanna, Ryan and Ethan Wharf at their table, with Karen Duke and her husband Robin, and Evelyn Wood and her husband Brent. We closed it down and had to be kicked out. Hahaha!

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

After chatting a bit more outside the reception area with Alanna’s family, we headed back to our room to retire for the night.

5/22/23 Monday

We moved forward into another time zone overnight. But the time didn’t change on our phones. So we woke up late and rushed off to get to Stampin’ Up!’s General Session. Anne Oshiro, her oldest daughter, Jackie Williams, and Elaine Shader joined us.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We saw sneak peeks of new products and heard the latest Stampin’ Up! news. It was also announced at the end that our 2025 incentive trip would be Disney World and we were handed Mickey Mouse rice crispy treats as gifts as we left. Too fun!!

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Tim took off but I stayed and visited afterwards and then went to Stampin’ Up!’s Hospitality Room. (The Hospitality Room is where demonstrators go each day to visit with others, spin for prizes, and see stamped samples.) I turned in my swap cards. And after spinning for a prize…

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

…and visiting for a bit, Tim met me there, grabbed a few treats,…

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

…and we went to the Windjammer to eat lunch with Elaine Schader, her husband Adam, and Laurie LaRose. Afterwards I met and connected with Paper Pumpkin Advisors Alumni.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

(This was an “At Sea” day, so it was filled it with a lot of Stampin’ Up! activities.)

After the alumni gathering, I left to go back to the room but got sidetracked and visited with Connie Stewart for quite awhile.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Tim napped and was there in the room when I returned.

It was formal night tonight in the dining room. So we got dressed up the best we could and joined Amy, Mary, and their husbands again in the dining room. (The risotto was fabulous!)

5/23/23 TuesdayHaugesund, Norway

We woke up early, had breakfast in the Windjammer, then we met our tour group and set off for our Scenic Skudeneshavn excursion. The drive from Haugesund to Skudeneshavn was very pretty, and the tour guide was very talkative and animated.

We arrived at the fishing village of Skudeneshavn and took a walking tour of the town. It was a very quaint town right on the waterfront. The town seemed empty of people, though. We were told they were probably at school and work.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We toured their small museum…

…and then explored a little bit on our own. We were hoping to shop, but we couldn’t find any stores open.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

After returning from our excursion, we had a late lunch at the Windjammer. We then went to the Hospitality Room so I could spin for a prize. I connected with Cindy Baughman. And while Tim went back to the room to take a nap, Cindy and I chatted for quite some time. For dinner, we were back at the Windjammer. We ate and visited with Hattie Walker Nelson. And a bit later Danny Hikade joined us.

We went back to the room, relaxed a bit, and then met David and Jennifer, Hattie and her husband Steve, and Michelle and Ryan for drinks. It was a pleasant and relaxing evening.

5/24/23 Wednesday – Geiranger, Norway

We woke up around 7:00 am and went up to the ship’s windy upper decks where we could be outside for 360 degree views of the beautiful Geiranger Fjord. We saw towering hills and cliffs, cascading waterfalls and gorgeous greenery and granite. Even though it was early, the sun had been up for hours and it would stay light out until well after 10 pm.

After taking photos of the Fjord we joined Silvia and Carolin for breakfast, then went out for more photos of the Fjord where we ran into David and Jennifer again, and Sarah Schuler and her family.

After photos and visiting we returned to the room. I left for the hospitality room and Tim stayed in the room. We had intended to go ashore to Geiringer to shop (we had no excursion booked), but the crew couldn’t get the gangway in place because of mechanical failures and high winds. The Tender boats weren’t handling the rough waters well, either. So by 2:30 we were told were wouldn’t be able to go off the boat at this port. Bummer! The Fjord was beautiful though, and we were able to take photos of the town from the boat. I visited with several demonstrators during that wait while in the Hospitality room and Tim got a good long nap.

Alanna and Ryan Wharf and their son Ethan joined us in the Windjammer for a late lunch. We visited for quite some time before returning to the room to get ready for dinner. Silvia and Carolin joined us for dinner in the dining room.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It was so nice to visit and catch up. We then went to the SeaPlex where Carolin was going to do the iFly Ripcord. We were unable to watch though. So we turned in early as we had to wake early for our Glacier excursion the next day.

5/25/23 Thursday – Olden, Norway

We woke early, skipped breakfast and showering, and went to the Royal Theatre for our excursion to the Briksdal Glacier. I found that demonstrators weren’t together and convinced the cruise staff to let us all be on one bus. We then boarded bus 4 with Lynn Feldkamp, her daughter Grace, Scot Strehlow, his wife McCall, and Mary Ann (a friend of another demonstrator). How fun it was to spend this excursion with all of them!

When we arrived, we hiked to the glacier taking several photos of the amazing scenery along the way.

Many in our group got back about 10 minutes late even though we were pretty efficient in our hiking. So there wasn’t time to shop the gift shop. But the tour also included an extra stop on the way back at a coffee house where we enjoyed coffee and desserts on fancy plates.

And outside we saw several buildings with living plants/grass on their roofs. We were told these are very insulating.

When we returned to port we shopped a bit at the gift shops near the cruise ship.

Then we got back on the boat and joined Jenni Pauli, Susie Wood and her husband, and Lorri and Dan Heiling for lunch. It was great catching up.

I went to the Hospitality Room to pick up swaps, spin for a prize, an take photos of all the swap boards.

Tim joined me a little later.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

That evening we had dinner in the Windjammer with Alanna and Ryan Wharf, Susan and Mike Campfield, and Brenda Nelson. The waters were rough and the ship rocked back and forth. It was fun to experience! That evening I finished up a blog post. Tim went to Vintages to join the Wharfs. And I joined them a bit later.

5/26/23 Friday – Stavanger, Norway

We awoke around 8 AM because we had no plans until 2:30 that afternoon (or so we thought). We had breakfast in the Windjammer, talked to Karen and Tim Titus,…

…and then met up with Jennifer and David Hill. We went into Stavanger with Jennifer & David and bought Hop On/Hop Off bus tickets to see the town.

After completing a loop of the town, which was very pretty, we got off the bus and hit some of the shops. We then split up and Jennifer and I continued shopping while Tim and David hit a few of the pubs.

After shopping, Jennifer led us into some interesting nooks and crannies of the town following her phone directions to get back to the boys. I was nervous because I didn’t want to be late for the lunch, but it was oh so fun to see those back streets. We found the boys at a pub not far away.

When it was time for our restaurant lunch at Tango, we said our goodbyes and proceeded to the restaurant. When we arrived, we discovered we showed up at the wrong time. We were supposed to be at the 11:30 time slot rather than the 2:30 one. Eek! But the staff was kind and fit us in. We sat with Janet & Doug Wakeland, Susan & Lance Nygaard, and Marcie Rhoades Besecker & her husband Rick.

The restaurant was fancy and the food was introduced in detail as each course was served.

We got back on the boat and Tim took a short nap while I went to the Hospitality Room. 

We had dinner in the Windjammer with Alanna, Ryan, Susan and Mike. Us girls then returned to our room to do a live video sharing swap cards. Then it was off to the Stampin Up!’s Farewell Reception.

It was nice to visit with people but sad to say goodbyes knowing we only had one more day on the boat.

Elaine brought a card game and many of us played until we were kicked out. Hahaha!

5/27/23 Saturday

Today was an “At Sea” day again. We met up with Natalie Travis and Jackie VanderSar-Boot and had breakfast in the dining room. Elaine and Adam Schader, and David, a new SU board member also joined us.

It was so nice to get a fancy gluten-free breakfast: Eggs Benedict and French Toast!

It was great conversation and it was so good to catch up a bit with Natalie and Jackie, too!

After breakfast Tim went to explore the ship and I headed over to the Hospitality Room with Elaine to spin for a prize. We visited with others and also played the card game again with Monika Davis.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We took a few photos. And then I went back and packed a bit.

Tim was still off exploring so I went to visit with Tami White, Selene Kempton, Sam Hammond, and others in the Cafe70. It was at this time that Selene performed in the finals for the Karaoke contest. She did a great job!

I connected with Tim back in the room where we rested, packed more, checked emails, and got showered and ready for dinner. Then we headed to the Windjammer around 7:30 to get coffee for Tim and say our goodbyes to the Wharfs. Alanna and Ethan decided to come with us though when we left for the dining room. (Janet Wakeland and Kylie Bertucci had invited us the evening before to dine with them and Ethan wanted their signatures.) Janet and Doug Wakeland weren’t able to make it. But we enjoyed the company of Kylie, Bruno, Marcie and Rick. Then we talked Alanna & Ethan into staying and taking Janet & Doug’s chairs. And Ryan joined us as well.

We left with the Wharfs and caught a bit of Lennon singing Karaoke. It was a fun evening. And it was sad to say our goodbyes. We went back to the room, finished packing, and set out our luggage by 10:30 PM.

5/28/23 Sunday

We woke at 5:15 thinking we were getting up at 6:15 because our clocks once again didn’t change. So we had about 5-1/2 hours of sleep total. We got some food at the Windjammer. Then we grabbed our carry-ons and left the ship by 7:15. After claiming our luggage we got on the bus and made our way to the London Heathrow airport.

The wait was quite a few hours, and coincidentally, we saw Chad Williams.

The second half of our May 2023 European vacation included the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip: a Norwegian Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Chad works for Stampin’ Up! but he we just here in London on vacation.

The flight to JFK airport got us in an hour early. We claimed our luggage again and then went off to the next gate to rest and wait for our connecting flight to Minneapolis.

I was exhausted when we finally landed. And after an Uber ride, we made it home by about 11 PM (about 5 AM London time). We didn’t unpack much, and went straight to bed. With only 5-1/2 hours of sleep the night before and staying awake for nearly 24 hours, we fell asleep quickly.

Here are photos of the gifts I received from Stampin’ Up!
