Almost Home…Susan’s Gift

My sister, Renée and I are enjoying our last day at sea. What a fantastic time we’ve had in our travels! I shared a few photos on Monday, July 8. And I plan to share more soon after we get back – hopefully Monday or Tuesday.

But today I thought I’d show you the congratulatory gift that my upline, Susan Campfield gave me. She’s always so good to me.

My beautiful Greek Isles Incentive Trip 2019 congratulatory gift! My upline, Susan Campfield gave me some sweet cupcakes, a generous Visa gift card, and a pretty scarf with matching earrings in this pretty box that she fancied up with the Noble Peacock Foil Sheets and Designer Paper die-cut with the Detailed Peacock Dies, the Detailed Bands Dies, and a sentiment image from the Band Together Stamp Set. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

She gave me some sweet cupcakes (the chocolate ones were gluten free), a very generous Visa gift card that I used on my trip, and a pretty scarf with matching earrings in this beautiful box that she fancied up with the Noble Peacock Foil Sheets and Designer Paper, the Detailed Peacock Dies, the Detailed Bands Dies, and a sentiment image from the Band Together Stamp Set.

Isn’t this packaging gorgeous!? She really spoiled me. (You’ll find a list below of the products she used to make this stunning belly band.)

I’m very impressed that she found a scarf that coordinated so well with the colors in the Noble Peacock Foil.

Ciao From Italy!

My sister, Renée and I are currently on the Stampin’ Up! Greek Isles Incentive Trip. And we are loving our vacation! We extended on the front end of the trip…flew in 5 days earlier and spent some time in Rome and Positano.

On July 3rd, a few hours after our plane landed in Rome, we took a Vespa tour. We rode on the back through the city of Rome while the drivers shared about the historical sites we saw along the way.

We are having so much fun in Italy! Making the most of these few days. And then we attend the Greek Isles Incentive Trip 2019! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Fabrizio and Valerio (who took the above and below photos) were fabulous tour guides. And what fun riding on the backs of the Vespas! We saw the Colosseum, the Roman Forum…

…the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, a small church where more of Michelangelo’s work can be found, the Forum, many Roman obelisks, the Orange Garden, and more. It was a wonderful way to tour the city because we could go on back pedestrian alleys that you wouldn’t see by car.

One of those streets was where Otaleg was located, voted best gelato in 2018! And it really was wonderful.

Our hotel that night had a beautiful view of the Colosseum from the roof top.

On July 4th we traveled by train to Naples, then hired a private driver to bring us to Positano where we stayed in an Airbnb for the next couple nights.

This is the front door to the terrace of our Airbnb. It was small but had a lot of character.

We ate our first meal (lunch that day) just down the road at Costantino’s. What a beautiful view from our table.

Afterwards we took the many stairs down to the City Center/main beach. Renee counted almost 900! Phew! But so worth it to see how the buildings are all stacked on top and entwined together. Needless to say, we have stronger calves after taking this path down two days in a row. (Yep, we did it again the next day.) Thankfully we were able to ride a bus to get back each time which dropped us off right at our door.

Once we made it down and caught our breath, we went shopping and put our feet in the water. Then we ate at Lo Guarracino La Pizza which was tucked away and near another beach. It had the best food and a great view too!

On July 5th we got up early, made it down those 900 steps, and made it to the 9 AM ferry which took us over to the island of Capri for the day. On the way we passed these well-known islands: the Gallos also known as Sirenusas. (In Greek mythology, several sirens were said to have inhabited these islands.)

When we arrived we went onto another boat to tour around the island of Capri. It was fun to pass through this arch and see many of the fancy yachts said to be owned by celebrities. Of course, we all took pictures and tried to guess who was on each one.

But the highlight of this adventure was going to see the Blue Grotto. Small row boats came to our larger boat and took groups of 3-5 people at a time into this cave. To get into the cave, passengers had to lie down in the boat. Then the guide brought the boat in by pulling on a chain as the water went down with the waves.

Once inside the water was amazing!!! Such a beautiful blue as you can see in the photo below.

After the boat tour, we took the Funicular (the tram) up to the historic center of Capri, ate a late lunch, and enjoyed the beautiful view.

July 6th was a day of travel. After checking out of our Airbnb, we went back to Rome via a driver to Naples and a train ride from Naples to Rome. By the time we were done with our taxi ride from the train station to the Sheraton Roma hotel, we were ready to put our feet up. And so we enjoyed Aperol Spritz drinks down by the pool and enjoyed the company of fellow demonstrators, Linda Bauwin, Sherrie Robinson, Laura Barto, Jenni Pauli, her daughter, Melissa, Margriet Tournier and her husband, Frank.

And July 7th, yesterday was officially the first day of the “incentive trip” portion of our travels. We were shuttled from the hotel to the cruise terminal and boarded the Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas. I’ll have more photos of the Stampin’ Up! portion of the trip to share when we return as I haven’t had time to load them from our cameras yet.

I can’t wait to show you how much we get spoiled!

I’m giddy because my sister and I leave for this trip in just two weeks!!! I can’t believe this fabulous dream-come-true trip that I earned just sharing what I love is almost here!

This is the swap card I’ll be bringing with me. It’s an arrow fold card.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop June 2019: New 2019-20 Annual Catalog Products! This is my swap card for this trip. It’s an arrow-fold card that I made with the Mosaic Mood Designer paper and the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set. Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Since I learned how to make these arrow fold cards last month and adapted the measurements to work with our A2-size envelopes, I’ve already made a few different ones with our new products. Click here to see the one I made with the Magnolia Lane Suite of products. And click here to see the one I made with the Garden Lane Designer Paper and Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set.

I love this sentiment in the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and felt that it went well with this card design. Plus sad to say, but I’m in need of sympathy cards lately.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop June 2019: New 2019-20 Annual Catalog Products! This is my swap card for this trip.

Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It’s a pretty easy card to make as long as you can measure and fold accurately. Here are the details if you would like to give this arrow fold card a try.

Measurements…

  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
    • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock
    • 5” x 4”
  • Mosaic Mood Designer Paper
    • 4-1/2” x 3-3/4”
    • Scrap for fussy-cutting the flowers and leaves
  • Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon
    • About 8″

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

Directions…

  • Mark the bottom front of the folded horizontal Very Vanilla card base at 2-3/4″. Mark each of the sides of the front of the card at 2-1/8″.
  • Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the 2-1/8″ marks with score lines. Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the upper corners with score lines.
  • This card is harder to explain with just written directions, so I encourage you to watch my video that I made for the Magnolia version of this card to catch all the tips and directions for making an arrow fold card.
  • Fold the outer score lines forward. Then fold the inner score lines backward to create the arrow. Use a Bone Folder to make the crease lines crisp. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the folded over sections of the arrow in place.
  • Mark the bottom of the Terracotta Tile Cardstock in the middle at 2-1/2″. Then follow the directions in the video for cutting from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the front sections of the card base.
  • Mark the bottom of the Mosaic Mood Designer Paper in the middle at 2-1/4″. Cut from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the Terracotta Tile sections of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside of the card.
  • Fussy-cut the flower and leaves and adhere to the front of the card with Dimensionals.
  • Tie the bow and add below the flower with a Glue Dot.

Tuesday with the help of my mom and husband, we got 100 of these new 2019-20 Annual Catalogs out the door for USPS to pick up yesterday. And then my mom helped me to get another 91 out the door for USPS to pick up today. PHEW! Normally I have Stampin’ Up! send them directly to my customers. But this time I wanted to do it myself so I could get them to my stampers right away, enclose a small gift, and ensure delivery. (Do you love how my husband’s shoes stick out on the lower left of the second photo? It the right angle, it looked like he got buried! hahaha)

If you live local to me, near Andover, Minnesota, let me know if you want me to set aside a catalog for you to pick up.

I never shared with you the gifts I gave to my team members who attended Stampin’ Up!’s April 2019 OnStage event!

Once again I went to Tamara Davis from TaDa! Moments to see what wonderful new products she had. And I fell in love with her Take Your Pick Tool holders. Personally I struggled with keeping my tool parts in a place where I could always find them, so this was perfect! She finished my personalized gifts quickly and sent them to me so I had plenty of time to add belly bands and gift tags to each one.

Click here to see the gifts I gave to team members that attended OnStage April 2019. Tamra Davis at TaDa! Moments made and etched the Take Your Pick Tool holders. Then I wrapped the containers they came in (Stampin’ Up!’s Acetate Card Boxes) with belly bands and personalized gift tags that I made with products from the retiring How Sweet It Is suite: How Sweet It Is Designer Paper, Sweetest Thing Stamp Set, Jar Of Sweets Framelits, and the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green Reversible Ribbon. I store my holder with the Tool parts outside of the acetate box for easy access. So I made another tag and turned the box into a new gift – a treat box filled with chocolates! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I love how they came in and were made for Stampin’ Up!’s Acetate Card Boxes, too.

For the belly band of this one I layered these pieces together: a strip of 1″ x 12″ How Sweet It Is Designer Paper, a strip of 1-1/4″ x 12″ Bermuda Bay Cardstock, and a strip of 1-1/2″ x 12″ Coastal Cabana. (Some of my gifts also used Melon Mambo Cardstock.) Then as I wrapped this layered strip around the layers gave way a bit and shifted, so I ended up with a definite seam.

I then tied a 3″ piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green Reversible Ribbon in a knot around a pin from the Sweet Pins & Tags kit and attached it to the seam with a Glue Dot with the pin opening forward so I could add the tag.

I stamped, punched & die-cut, and layered my tag pieces.

I even printed out a note that I folded up and sandwiched inside.

Just recently I decided to recycle the box and switch out the tag to create a NEW gift. I filled the box with chocolates. Yum!

Then I realized I wanted to decorate the box a bit more. So I took the chocolates out, lined the box with a 10-1/4″ x 5-3/4″ piece of designer paper (scored at 1/2″, 4-15/16″, 5-7/16″ and 9-7/8″), and put the chocolates back in.

I slipped the belly band back on and pinned on a new simple tag.

My favorite thing about attending Stampin’ Up!’s April 2019 OnStage was being with my many friends I have made over the years as a demonstrator. Ones who are definitely near and dear to my heart are those in my Stampers With ART community. I was blessed to have been among so many of them at this event in Minneapolis. Most of the 32 that attended are in this photo. ❤️

After the event ended many in my group gathered for an After Party. And oh what fun!

Another blessing about being a demonstrator is that we give each other hand-crafted gifts (evidence of this is on the tables shown in the two tables above). Here are a few I received from those in my team and others.

There was only one gift (the middle one pictured below) that I couldn’t put a name on because the sweet gal that gave it to me didn’t include her contact information. Hopefully she’ll see this and reach out to me. She touched my heart when she gave it to me, and I’d love to give her credit.

The New 2019-20 Annual Catalog!! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is being able to order products early. And those that attend OnStage (Stampin’ Up!’s convention) events get to order even earlier.

Many of us just returned from the April 2019 OnStage where the new products from the 2019-20 Annual Catalog were revealed. I overnighted my preorder, and it just arrived 6 hours ago. SO FUN!!!

I haven’t had a lot of time to play with much it yet, but I finished my make-n-takes with some extra new products we were gifted at OnStage. Here are images of the make-n-takes the way we were supposed to make them.

Having a blast at Stampin’ Up!’s April 2019 OnStage in Minneapolis, MN – Goodies I took home! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I only did two as intended: the bird’s nest card from the upcoming May Paper Pumpkin kit & the birds on a branch card from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set and Bird Ballad Designer Paper. So pretty, right?!

Having a blast at Stampin’ Up!’s April 2019 OnStage in Minneapolis, MN! Click here to see my versions of the make-n-takes. #OnStage2019 #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Because of the suggestion from Amanda Martin while we were working on these cards at OnStage, I punched out a section of this Bird Ballad Designer Paper before finishing my card above.

Then I brought it home and added it to a Whisper White card base along with the pink flowers from the other make-n-take card which I altered a LOT. Both of these cards below used the supplies from the Perennial Essence Suite make-n-take: the Floral Essence Stamp Set, the Perennial Flower Punch, the Perennial Essence Designer Paper, the Perennial Essence Vellum, and the Perennial Essence Floral Centers.

I didn’t do the next make-n-take as is either, because I received the It Starts With Art Stamp Set as a product gift. And someone at my table (Amanda?) gave me their make-n-take packet (so I had an extra pieces). That fun Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon is carrying over into the new catalog. So I used that along with the Follow Your Art Designer Paper, the It Starts With Art Stamp Set, a little extra cardstock, and Rhinestones to complete these two cards. Gotta love that sentiment: “Follow your art.”

These last two I made with the make-n-takes supplies from the Come Sail Away Suite and a little extra cardstock: a Crumb Cake card base and some Basic Black. The Sailing Home Stamp Set is amazing and includes some wonderful sentiments. I have a feeling it will be pretty popular. The Sail Away Trinkets are adorable. And the Come Sail Away Designer Paper is both beautiful AND handsome!

I shared several photos including product and sample display boards yesterday, on my April 15th post. But here are a few more photos from OnStage April 2019. It truly IS an amazing experience to be at one of these events!

Besides all the ideas with new products that we get to create with, that are on display, and that are demonstrated…

ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS

Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. You will not see these items in the upcoming 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuts June 4, 2019. Click here for more information.
