Timeless Tropical 3d Treats

With the summer time fun starting soon I wanted to share these fun tropical theme treats with you that I received during my Incentive Trip swaps. Such fun for graduation or even a pool party.

This first one hold a couple of Ghirardelli squares which is always a popular treat. I love the sparkle this treat holder has as it uses our Rainbow Glimmer Paper (153056) for some extra pizzazz!

This treat has been made with our Acetate Card Boxes (150428). Simply cut them in half and you’ve got two treat boxes that are really sturdy treat. Pop it into our Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags (151312) and tie it up with some ribbon they’re easy to take with you too.

And this next treat uses our NEW Simply Classic Treat Boxes (155566)

A little bit of ribbon creates a fun pull tab to open the box. This little box holds quite a bit too.

And my final share for the day is a fun Ombre Gift Bag (155479)

Filled with a fun face mask to help rest & relax during the summer holidays.

Fun right?

Why not check out the Timeless Tropical Stamp set (151497) you’ll find it on page 21 of the Annual Catalog. It’s got a coordinating set of dies too! You’ll love the Tropics Dies with all their detail stamp and why not create fun projects that just use the die cuts? Some of the images, like this pineapple can be used on their own which is an added bonus.

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.

Flower & Friendship Maui Swaps

Today’s cards all feature the Flower & Friendship Bundle (155590). This Bundle is a lot of fun to work with since it contains a punch, making it quick and easy! And who doesn’t love flowers?

This first card uses our Polished Pink and Soft Succulent to create a fun fold card.

The 2021 In Color Designer Series Paper (155641) was used for the flowers – simply stamped on the pattern and then punched out. A great way to add some interest quickly to an image like this

making this card bright and cheerful. The sentiment was cut out using the Layering Circle Dies (151770) and the fun little dragonfly was punched from Soft Succulent card stock using the Dragonflies Punch (154240). Don’t you love how our products coordinate?

This next card uses the fun patterns from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (Host 155426) and the Basic Borders Dies (155558).

Did you know that you can get this Designer Series Paper for free? It’s easy simply plan a party with me and be a Host or place a qualifying order.

During the special Host promotion that ends on June 14th you can not only earn this but also have an extra $25 added to your host benefits. Why not contact me today and set up a time for your party? Choose from a book party, facebook, or even an in person event today!

This final card uses our new Tailor Made Tag Dies (155563) to highlight the sentiment.

The Hand Penned Designer Series Paper peaks out from behind a wonderful sponged background and the little White Vellum shape has been cut out using our Painted Labels Dies (151605) for a bit more added dimension. Soft color that has an impact for this card.

Hand Penned Petals & More

Today I thought I’d share some of the swaps that I received during the Maui Incentive Trip. It was a lot of fun seeing what everyone created and checking out the boards in the hospitality room.

These first cards all use the Hand Penned Petals Stamp set (155070) and the coordinating Penned Flowers Dies (155557) that are available in a bundle (155492) for 10% off. I really love the soft look of this first card.

If you love dies, then this card is right up your alley. It uses the NEW Stitched Greenery Die (155451) to create the backdrop. and the sentiment is on a shape from the Tasteful Labels Dies (152886). And if you don’t recognize it, the circle has been cut from our Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (155499). Just lovely.

And speaking of soft and lovely check out this next card using our Square Vellum Doilies (152484), it’s been teamed up with our Pool Party and Cinnamon Cider.

a bit of White Embossing Powder and Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack (155475) create interest and texture along with a pop of shimmer with the Genial Gems (155500) that are scattered around the focal point.

And how about this So Saffron and Misty Moonlight combination?

And for a bolder look, check out this next card.

Vellum was used again with the dies and our Stampin’ Blends give the flowers a bold pop of color.

And today here are a few more pictures for you of the Maui Incentive Trip. I couldn’t resist starting the day with the view and a cup of coffee.

Everything is decorated so lovely – including the breakfast tables. The flowers were breath taking.

Stampin’ Up! spoiled us with the hospitality room where we got to spin the wheel each day for prizes.

We had a full day planned away from the resort, so we spent the day at the local aquarium,

and ate lunch on the road in Wailuku since

we wanted to see Ioa Valley and hike a bit.

the views were breath taking. This was the Jurassic Park area of the island that you see in the movie.

And for our last stop we headed to Lahaina and a took a sunset dinner cruse which was wonderful even though Larry struggled a bit with the choppy water on the way out.

After a full day we returned back to the room to find another pillow gift on the bed. This time a matching straw bag filled with goodies! Including the upcoming July-December Catalog!!!

As you can imagine I perked up long enough to flip though it before falling into to bed. lol Don’t forget to stop on by my facebook page to see more pictures of the Maui Incentive Trip.

Maui Incentive Trim

On a personal note: I’m still trying to readjust to the 6 hour time change after getting home late on Monday afternoon. I’ll be sharing some photos of things over the next week or so here and on my StampwithJini facebook page as I sort through things and catch up.

Today I thought I’d share a couple of them with you to start. Here we are ready to head to the airport, our little dog Chewie knowing that something was up. Little did we know that this would be our last time seeing her. We unexpectedly lost her on Sunday afternoon while getting ready to leave the resort. Here is one of my favorite photos of her.

Needless to say, our homecoming was a quiet one, but I’m thankful our son Johnathan was with her while we were away.

Needless to say we took hundreds of photos! Here we are getting ready to land. I think we saw a rainbow every day.

Maui was amazing and I feel so blessed to have been able to earn this trip. Stampin’ Up! definitely made it special! A fun pillow gift to start the trip.

The Grand Wailea was amazing with it’s views, gardens, and water features. Here is the view from our room.

And of course the sunsets!

Our first night of the Incentive trip we had a Carnival to welcome everyone with yummy little treats.

Thank you to each and everyone of you who have supported me and my Stampin’ Up! business! I truly appreciate you and the fact you allow me to share what I love with you! Without you I never would have earned this truly amazing trip!
