Sweet as a Peach Treat Tag, Team fun & more

How about some swaps, team time and a fun treat tutorial? Today I thought I’d share what we’ve been doing as a my group recently. I’ve got a great team and we have a lot of fun together when we gather each month, so I thought I’d share some of the groups swaps first. I’ll start with some of the Sale-a-bration cards.

this first card uses the lovely Feels like Home stamp set (Sale-a-bration 156607) and has been colored with our Watercolor Pencils (141709 & 149014) assortments for a softer look. And this next card was created using the Delicate Dahlia stamp set (Sale-a-bration 156601) and Merry Merlot for a bold look.

If you don’t recognize the polka dots it’s from the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper pack (Sale-a-bration 156630) which as you can see is quite versatile. A bit of fussy cutting and some Wink of Stella finish off this lovely card. And how about this big bold sunflower?

This card uses the Celebrate Sunflowers (152517) and the coordinating Sunflower Dies (152704) and it’s also a fun buckle card, the sentiment tucks into a punched slot behind the sunflower.

Not only do we do team meetings each month, but we also had a team retreat in August, so I thought I’d share a couple of the swaps from that today. This first project uses the Friends are Like Seashells Bundle (159516) and Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (154309).

And how about some pansy fun using the Pansy Petals Suite (155810)? A simple cutting technique creates this criss-cross pattern for the card front.

We also made a fun little box that was filled with some treats.

I really love this Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (155807) and the fact you can cut tons of flowers out with the bundle’s dies and isn’t the little box adorable? Want to see more team fun? This month was our bi-annual Peak Princess event. What is that? It’s a special day filled with pampering that my team can earn. This time we made 3 special projects, won prizes and enjoyed a nice Hawaiian inspired luncheon together.

The pulled pork and Mango Salsa we had were a hit so I thought I’d share the recipes with you. The pulled pork is soooo easy with just 3 ingredients and you make in the crock pot too! And you may find the Mango Salsa addictive – eat it with chips, or you can add it on top of fish or shrimp taco too.

And as a little gift everyone received a charm for their lanyards that was placed in this cute Treat Tag marking this occasion.

Want to see how I made this little Treat Tag? I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial for you and a PDF with the complete supply list.

How to Reserve yours?

You’ll need to email me (StampwithJini@gmail.com) or call me (706 754-7124) to hold your spot ASAP, since there isn’t a lot of time before I need to place the order on August 3rd so you get yours as soon as possible after the catalog goes live.

EMAIL me directly at StampwithJini@gmail.com with your information listed below to save your spot in the share: (Note: For multiple shares and/or swatch books – contact me for a shipping quote…a Flat Rate packaging can hold quite a bit).

Please include the following information in your email:

1.  Full Name

2.  Mailing Address (US only)

3.  Indicate how many Paper Shares and/or Design Tool & DSP Swatch Book sets you would like to reserve

4.  Email for PayPal invoicing

When your shares/swatch book order fills, I will email a PayPal invoice for payment process (around July 26th).  I will then place my order with Stampin’ Up! once payment is received for the shares/swatch book.

PayPal is easy — and a PayPal account is not required to make your payment.  Just an email address and credit/debit card.  When you receive your PayPal invoice by email, you can choose to pay using your PayPal funds or by a credit/debit card.  Simply follow their instructions to make your payment via the method that is most convenient for you. It should be simple!

And of course, if you live locally – just let me know if you prefer to pick up your items rather than pay for the shipping and I’ll invoice you accordingly.

NOTE:  The first share/swatch books if placed on August 3rd can be expected in about 2 weeks after I place the order. Here is how my paper shares/swatch books work… first I save your spot and collect your payment, then I place the order, receive the order, cut and package the paper, package up your swatch book/share for mailing and then take them to the Post Office to ship.

I’ll do my best to fill these orders as quickly as possible. I’ll be placing my order first thing on August 3rd. However, if there are back orders, orders will ship when everything has been received.

More Maui Swaps & Pictures

Today I’ll be sharing some more of my Incentive Trip swaps with you and I hope you’ll enjoy them along with my photos from the Luau and last day at the Grand Wailea. So here we go!

This first card uses the Timeless Tulip stamp set (158327) and the Tulip Builder Punch (151295).

It’s a fun fold that teams up our New In Colors Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent. This is a great set for new stampers since it has some great sentiments and a punch.

And how about this next card using the sweet and soft Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (155499) and the Beauty of Friendship Bundle (155834)?

It’s another fun fold.

This next card uses the Henna Hearts stamp set (155665) found on page 100 in the Annual Catalog.

The Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper (155761) with it’s foiling makes an impact on this gate fold card.

And if you like dragonflies check out this next card using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle (156224) and the Meadow Dies (155852).

The dragonfly just shimmers since it has been given a coating of our Clear Wink of Stella. And finally this last card uses one of our holiday bundles, Tiding & Trimmings (155716) that you can find in the Annual Catalog.

The Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper (155718) sets the color pallet with Sahara Sand and Evening Evergreen. The Real Red Rhinestones (146924) add a lovely bit of shine to the star while the die add a texture and detail. Simply lovely!

Don’t forget to stop back by tomorrow I’ve got some great 3D swaps to share with you!

Mahalo Maui Luau & More

Our last full day in Maui was filled with friends, new and old. Stampin’ Up! gave us one last opportunity to gather as a group for a wonderful evening right off the beach.

A Quick pic with Shelli at the Maui Incentive Trip Luau

The smell of Plumeria filled the air as we mingled and gathered at our assigned seats to enjoy the evening and listen to the story of the Island.

Sunset at the Luau with my husband, Larry

My husband, Larry, loved his first Stampin’ Up! event as did our daughter who was able to join us. He told me later that I really need to earn the next Incentive Trip.

The Luau also gave us one last opportunity to wear our beautiful leis that we were given when we arrived.

I got a chance to meet 3 new stamping friends at our table.

It was a wonderful night to remember.

And this beautiful hand crafted necklace was my parting pillow gift that I found when we returned to our room that evening.

It was a trip of a lifetime and I have to say once again, thank you. I couldn’t do what I love and share what I love doing if it weren’t for you! I appreciate you and thank you again for supporting my Stampin’ Up! business and spending some time stamping with me.

If you’d like to see more photos of the Luau and my final day in Maui stop on by my facebook page where I’ll share some photos with you later today.

Maui Swaps & More

Today I wanted to share some more of the fantastic swaps that I got on the Incentive trip. This swap was an optional part of the trip and we had a choice of cards or 3d. Today’s post again is all about the cards.

And there were lots who participated, the boards were so full that not everyone’s made it on to the board, mine included. But I’ve already shared my card with you on the 18th HERE along with the video and tutorial in case you wanted to see it.

On to the swaps… This first one is bright and cheerful and perfect for the event! Magenta Madness and the In the Tropics Dies (151495). Yep, no stamping just dies were used to create this card and the bright cheerful colors make it fun.

And check out this next card which uses strips of the 2021 In Colors.

Clever, right? the strips adhered to a Basic Black card stock piece and were then die cut using the Hippo & Friends Dies (153585). The sentiment is from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set (155385) and those fun little speckles from the Clear & Contour stamp set (154994).

Another bright and cheerful card using the exclusive Host Designer Series Paper, Pattern Party (Host 155426). It works perfectly with this bold stamp set, Biggest Wish (155052).

Our White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (151326) is perfect for this project since you can add color to the ribbon so easily! And inside is just as bright and fun, check it out.

The very popular Artistically Inked Suite is highlighted on this next card.

With all the gold foiling the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (155464) is sure to impress.

This next card uses the fun In Symmetry stamp set (155140), Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper (155605) and new Baker’s Twine Essential Pack (155475).

I love the way our Champagne Rhinestones (151193) pick up the colors on the card. And it’s a fun fold too.

My last swap that I wanted to share with you today is a Slim Line Card done in our 2021 In Colors.

They look so great together! The card was quick and easy since it uses the New Flowers & Leaves Punch (155373), Heart Punch Pack (151292) and the Banners Pick a Punch (153608).

Got a favorite swap that I shared with you today? Why not leave me a comment and let me know.

More Incentive Trip Highlights

I thought I’d share a few more pictures with you from the Incentive Trip. This first one is of the Maui Gold Pineapple Tour, our guide Ken was a lot of fun. I can’t tell you how sad I am that we’ve cut into our last Maui Gold pineapple. I’m trying to figure out how I can hide it from the family without feeling guilty! Ah, well I guess I’ll be sharing it is too good not to share.

These next few photos are of the Stampin’ Up! excursion – we chose snorkeling and were so glad we did. We had a lot of fun being on a catamaran for the first time and watching the sails go up. While I just love being on the water, Larry can struggle with it and experienced a bit of motion sickness.

While our cameras don’t do justice to the fish the snorkeling was fantastic and there was a lot of variety too.

We spent a lovely afternoon around the resort. Here are some more pictures of the resort – these views never get old. Early morning I think was my favorite with the pinks from the sun rise.

To end the day we enjoyed dinner with Sherrie and her husband Jeff at the Maui Brewery Co. It was nice catching up and that we got to meet each others spouses after knowing each other for years. (I always enjoy doing Sherrie’s Shoebox Swaps at our live events.)

I had the Coconut Shrimp Fried Rice Sherrie said the other demonstrators were raving about. It was soooo yummy!

Whew, so much food and I loved the presentation. If you’d like to see more of the photos that I took from the Incentive Trip stop by my facebook page and check them out.

Then stop back by next week when I’ll be sharing more cards & the 3d swaps with you.

Team Fun at the OnStage@Home After Party

I love sharing with my team and coming home after a Stampin’ Up! event is no different. While this year we gathered virtually we still were able to gather for an After party and share the excitement of the NEW 2021 January – June Mini Catalog.

So I created these cute little flag holders using the Quite Curvy Bundle (156228) that is currently available. I just love these little sweet birds!

I used the colors from our OnStage@Home swag so everything coordinated

and was able to put the logo on the inside of these folders with the little flag sticky notes. We are going to need lots of sticky notes!!!

I also put together some little charms using some images from the stamp sets, the catalog, and logo. Each one was a bit different

but they all had one thing in common – a prize patrol number!

Things were all set up for a light lunch and an couple of hours with the team.

Of course, no team event is without stamping, so I had packets for everyone with their little team gifts waiting for them all their stamping spot.

We also had a table to share all the Product Purchase Premiere goodies – there is nothing like being able to touch and feel in person!

And of course I shared my copy of the real Mini & Sale-a-bration Catalogs that they could look at too.

We made 4 projects using new products from the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure.

And of course while we stamped prize patrol numbers were called and prizes were given out!

Lots of smiling faces

Want to see our projects?

Not only did stamp together, we got to use the new Blending Brushes found in the Mini Catalog and learn a fun new technique too.

I’ll be sharing these projects with you later so stop back by to see my tutorials and videos for these projects and more!

So what do you think? Sound like fun? Love the new items too? It’s just a peek of what’s inside the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog! And as I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first? Right! 

Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t lose! If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first too!

Rocking with OnStage@Home

Yesterday, I shared with you some of the fun items I gave as team gifts for the OnStage event that is in full swing and so today I thought I’d share some of the fun items I got in the mail from Stampin’ Up! While we aren’t gathering with a LIVE event Stampin’ Up! is still pampering us with great swag!

Last night we kicked off the event with a private acoustical rock concert with Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo! Sooo cool!

You could feel the energy through our chat room! Good thing, my kids couldn’t see me rocking out and singing along to classics like Love is a Battlefield! They’d be so embarrassed.

We also recognized everyone’s accomplishments around the globe and several million dollar earners shared projects they created with the stamp sets they helped design that will be in the 2021 Mini. You’re going to love the variety of sets they’ve created!

During recognition last night I was recognized in 2 categories

Know, I don’t earn these on my own. I couldn’t do this without you and my team members! I can’t put into words just how much I appreciate all of my stampers who allow me to share what I love with them. I never thought my world would become so enriched when I started as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. Stamping and this journey with Stampin’ Up! has allowed me to learn and grow personally along with allowing me to meet and become friends with so many people I never would have met other wise. So thank you! What a great job I have!!!

While we are missing our special event for leaders called Center Stage Stampin’ Up! has sent us this little surprise to celebrate our accomplishments. It came in this lovely little box that coordinated with our swag box.

I love the way that Stampin’ Up! presents things – the packaging is always as beautiful as the gift and message!

Underneath was a great little gift and practical since they come in different colors and with a variety of charms too making it easy to identify mine.

I have to admit at first I was a bit perplexed by the bright blue ball at the end of this scissors charm, but later learned it is to protect and hold the point of the scissors when it’s not in it’s cover. What a aha moment that was. lol!

Want to see what was in the swag box? I’m loving the bright cheerful colors!

It was filled to the brim! with all kinds of goodies Grid Paper, note books, stickers, a fun gel pen and a OnStage bag! Can you name the colors? (I’ll list the answer below for you.)

I’m thinking this bag will be perfect for a day at the beach since there is a zippered pocket on the bottom too. (Can you say Maui? A great take along for our delayed incentive trip when we get to go next May) and these cute little pins are so much fun!

Not sure if I’ll have a chance to swap them yet, but this little guy is adorable with it’s big eyes and “snail mail”. I’m thinking they’ll be a sneak peek of what’s inside the 2021 January – June Mini!

What color is the Swag Box & Bag: Mango Melody, Magenta Madness, Pool Party, Pacific Point, and Granny Apple Green. The colors are soooo cheerful!!! How can you not smile?

2020 August – December Mini Goes Live!

Everyone loves crafting for the holidays and Stampin’ Up! is giving us a Mini Catalog that is packed full of wonderful products! Our Holiday Catalog has been renamed and is now being called the August – December Mini, but you’ll be thrilled to know it has the same great selection of products.

August December Mini Catalog

If you are a regular customer of mine you should have received your catalog in the mail. If you haven’t received one yet, please contact me so I can get you your copy. Simply email me at StampwithJini@gmail.com

August – December Mini Catalog Organizational items – I bet you’re wondering if I’ve got my organizational items for this catalog and if I’ll be sharing them with you. Well of course I have, after all its a must. LOL! Seriously who doesn’t love to organize their craft area, right? And with our fall crafting it’s always great to have things at your finger tips.

I’ll be posting these items over the next few days for you – so stop back by often. Or if you don’t want to miss a thing, why not sign up to receive my blog posts right in your inbox? Click HERE to sign up (and then don’t forget to click on the link in the email you receive to activate your request to receive my information)

NEW Online Store Goes Live

Just a quick reminder about my Online Store that’s IMPORTANT :

Stampin’ Up! has launched our new websites today.   The links taking your directly to the product in my Online Store may not work as normal. They may simply work by taking you to my store but not to the product itself.    If you have any issues placing an order with me please let me know.  I’m happy to help.

Please remember these two very important things: When placing an order in the Online store: Please confirm you are shopping with me and that my name is listed as your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (The new system will allow you to check out as a guest and bypass choosing a demonstrator. If that is the case I won’t get your order information and I won’t be able to mail catalogs, gifts, etc.).  My name is listed as Jini Merck and I live in Clarkesville, Georgia.

Since this is a NEW website, your bookmark and auto fill passwords may not work.

If that is the case you’ll want to create a new bookmark and sign in that way, saving it again to your password safe if you use one. Also, because of this your password may not work.  If that happens you will need to reset it. Because it is a new website and we are using a new email system for it, when you go to reset your password, the link emailed to you may go in your spam folder.  So you’ll want to check that if you don’t see it right shortly after you request it.

Please know that I’m here to help in any way as always. There may be a few bugs to start with in the new Online Store, so if you prefer for me to place your order for you I can. We can get through this together as always.   

Thanks and as always I appreciate you choosing me as your Demonstrator!

REDEEM YOUR BONUS DAY COUPONS STARTING TODAY!!!

You can start redeeming your Bonus Days coupons today! Place your order in my new Online Store or contact me to place the order. The choice is yours! But you won’t want to delay since these coupons are only good until August 31st and then they are gone for good!

When using your coupons in my Online Store you’ll want to enter them a bit differently than in the past. You will enter them in the check out screen.

And you’ll enter them one at a time then hit the apply button and then repeat for the number of coupons you’ll want to use.

Remember to make sure my name is at the top so I can send you your free gift!

Geared Up Garage

It the week before Father’s Day so I thought it would be a great time to share some wonderful sets that include Father’s Day sentiments. Today’s set is the Geared Up Garage stamp set (148590). It’s perfect for our guys who love those classic cars. And it is a perfect choice for my guy since he’s a classic card enthusiast. We spent a lot of time those first years going to car shows and swap meets. (I’ll share a photo with you later in the post of Larry’s baby with you.)

This first card combines the beautiful World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (152491)

I love the way that the Brass Foil (153057) has been used for the gears and pulls out the foiling in the Designer Series Paper too. The combination of Bermuda Bay and Basic Black is quite striking in person.

And this next card uses the color theme from my husbands car in addition to some simple stamping which makes it a great choice if you are just building your stamping collection. Classic – the Basic Black, Smoky Slate and Real Red makes an impact.

The Geared Up Garage stamp set also has coordinating Garage Gears Dies (151812) which make it a favorite!

On a personal note, here is the photo I told you I’d share. Back when we were first married my husband was working on his 1957 Chevy that he got when he was in the Army. He hauled it all the way from California back to Georgia. Here is a snap shot of it.

He had just completed restoring it before we got married, so we recreated my parents wedding photo from 1958 with it. We’ve been married 33 years now, but it seems just like yesterday at times. I’m wearing my mother’s dress, with a corset and big wooden hoop under it. That was an experience!

More Organizational items for the 2020 Annual Catalog

Today I’ll be sharing with you my Die Case Inserts for our coordinating dies. I like the fact that these sit on my shelf with the stamp sets and have the same look. All nice and neat!

If the Die set is large I’ll add a second magnetic sheet to the other side of the case so I have plenty of room.

I simply print these Case Inserts off on Whisper White card stock, then trim and insert. Click HERE to learn more about that.

Here are Die Case Inserts for all the Dies found in the 2020 Annual Catalog – If you find an error or there is a problem please let me know.
