True Beauty & Back Stage Fun!

Yesterday I shared the first of two swaps that I created for the Back Stage event last week. I I decided I wanted to do both a masculine and feminine card for the swaps. So today I’ll be sharing the swap I made with the True Beauty stamp set (158976).

This stamp set is perfect for feminine cards with it’s floral images and lovely font. The true watercolor look is built into the stamp so it’s soo easy to use and create a multidimensional look for any project!

This set also has a coordinating set of dies and is part of a suite of products, but for this project I wanted to keep it simple. (A late night the day before you fly out will do that lol)

Here is the card I came up with.

Sweet with a bold pop of color. Perfect for a friend! So why not check out my video tutorial and pdf for the project I have created for you? And did you know when I give you a Classic Ink item # on my pdfs I include the reinker item # for the ink pad? I always tell folks to order them together so you’ll never have a dry ink pad. Nothing more frustrating when creating, right? Something I learned the hard way when I first started stamping. Anyhow here is the the video tutorial.

And how about some pictures too – Back Stage is a special event that Stampin’ Up! holds for it’s leaders once a year. It was held in New Orleans this year some place I’d never been before, so it was exciting to see what this town was all about. We stayed in the French Quarter and after I arrived I had some time grab lunch and to explore with new friends before our Sweets & Swaps event that evening.

What a view!

Check in brought a fun swap bag filled with goodies – Stampin’ Up! always spoils us!

Swapping with 500 of your fellow leaders what could be more fun?

and of course there were sweets and entertainment too!

The next 2 days brought lots of wonderful local food, training, fun and fellowship with new and old friends.

And our final night ended with a Mardi Gras parade and party.

As always our hearts were full as we said goodbye at the end of the evening,

until next time when we gather again. Do these Stampin’ Up! events appeal to you too? Why learn more about becoming a Demonstrator and joining my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers HERE or contact me today?

Team Shoe Box Fun & More

Last week I shared with you one of our projects from our December Team Luncheon and so today I wanted to share the lovely Shoe Box projects that everyone brought with them to share. There was a wide variety of projects which is what makes a shoe box swap so much fun!

This first card is a special Gift Box in a Card that uses our Eden’s Garden Collection (160849).

I just love the little message that was included with the card for the back.

What a great way to send virtual hugs. I know I’ll be making more of these myself to share with you soon.

Next a fun fold – this fun card uses the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set (158203) and it’s coordinating dies (156095) along with the fun Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (154309) that adds texture to the shells too. If you haven’t seen this Bundle (159516) and love anything beach themed you’ll want to be sure to check it out (page 27 of the Annual Catalog).

A card made with the lovely Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (155841) and some of our dies along with the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set (155783).

Texture has also been added with our Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317) and lovely Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon (155722). and need a birthday card? This next card has tons of appeal with it’s rich look using the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (155464) and Gold Foil (132622).

And last but not least a sneak peek from the upcoming MINI and Sale-a-bration products. This last card uses the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Friendly Hello (159990) and lovely Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper (158127). Both these items will be available to earn on January 4th with a qualifying order.

I’m thinking they will be very popular. Of course, if you stamp with me regularly your 2022 January – June MINI Catalog is already in the mail on it’s way to you and hopefully arriving soon.

Wondering How to Get YOUR Copy?

  • If you haven’t ordered in a while
  • Don’t have a demonstrator

Contact me at stampwithjini@gmail.com or give me a call. I’ll be happy to mail you one or if your local set one aside for pick up

And of course since this is our Annual Luncheon and I gave everyone this cute little charm for their team lanyard

along with a little gift.

And because it’s December I shared some of the products with my team that we were able to preorder from the 2022 January – June Mini and Sale-a-bration Brochure. It’s one of my favorite “perks” of being a demonstrator. Getting to be first to order new products and get them at a discount too! What’s not to love?

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.

  • Crock Pot Kaula Pulled Pork Recipe PDF
  • Mango Salsa Recipe PDF

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!

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.
