Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek - Quilted Christmas

Welcome to the Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek! One of the perks of achieving the incentive trip is free products. And this year Stampin' Up! released the Holiday Catalogue to attendees before anyone else. They also spoiled us with bucket loads of free product from the upcoming catalogue! And as of today, Stampin' Up! has given us permission to share the products and samples we've created with you.

There are lots of wonderful products to be released. I hope you enjoy a little peek into what's to come.


The products I chose to focus on are from the Quilted Christmas Suite. This collection of products is perfect for anyone who loves to quilt or sew, who would love to be able to quilt or sew, loves the quilted look, well for anyone really. It's such a sweet collection!

I used the Christmas Quilt Bundle, which includes the Christmas Quilt stamp set and the Quilt Builder framelits, and the Quilted Christmas DSP. My color combination was pulled from the colors in the dsp. I would never have thought to put real red with lemon lime twist, but I LOVE it!
 

And although the name suggests that the bundle is for Christmas, as you can see from this layout, it can be used year round. There is nothing Christmas about this layout!


And take a look at these flowers... you can stamp the image and cut it out with the framelit, you can also add the inner piece that will cut the inner petals out, like the red layer on the top flower. And the inner petals from the detailed flower are what I used as leaves! Plus I figured out a couple other ways to use this combination of dies. But I'll save that for another day!


If you look at the stamping on the star-like image in the background, it looks like a lot of work. However, SU has designed the stamp so that you are stamping 2 of the diamond shapes at once (opposite each other so they can be the same color). And they are really easy to line up!

The Holiday Catalogue goes live to customers September 1st. One of the perks of being a demonstrator is that we can pre-order ANYTHING from the Holiday Catalogue beginning August 1st! That also means that you can choose Holiday Catalogue products as part of your starter kit! If this interests you and you are in Canada, I'd love to answer any questions you have!

Coffee Cafe - Thailand Swap


I'm so hooked on the colors Lemon Lime Twist and Black! I love those two colors together and can't seem to get enough!! Today I'm sharing the card I created for the Thailand incentive trip swap.

I love the Coffee Break Suite!



I love the stamp set, the coordinating framelits, the patterned paper, the corrugated elements and the ribbon colors (soft sky, crumb cake and white- swoon!). Although I did switch up the colors for my swap, you will be seeing lots created using this bundle of products in the near future.

Have a creative day!

Thailand Incentive Trip Recap

Wow! What a trip we had! I have so many photos and details that I could share with you but will just do a short recap of our trip.

It had a bit of a rocky start but once we arrived it was fabulous! Here are a few of my favorite photos from our time away.

Although we never intended to spend any time in Bangkok, because of some complications with the first part of our trip we ended up being in Bangkok for almost two days. So we got to see and experience some great things.


We did a long boat tour and one of the stops was a floating market. This lady is preparing the food for the little restaurant to her right! Everything she needs is on that boat or just off to her right. It was so interesting to watch!


Thailand has some very exotic fruit that we don't often find at home and the pineapple in Bangkok was some of the BEST pineapple I've ever had. So sweet and juicy. Mmmm so good. But we also tried Rambutan (the hairy looking one), Mangosteen (the dark, round one) and dragon fruit. Although I've seen dragon fruit in the grocery stores here at home, I don't think I've ever tried it.


Our resort in Phuket was absolutely gorgeous! It didn't matter where you were standing, the view was stunning in every direction!


About a 15 minute walk down the beach was a great local restaurant where you could eat right on the beach. This was our view at dinner. Gorgeous!

 One of my friends recommended that we try Thai Pancakes and oh my word, I'm so glad we did. They were delicious.


One of our excursions, thanks to Stampin' Up! was a trip to Phang Nga Bay. It started with a speed boat, then we went on a canoe and through a little cave. The views were stunning. Then back onto the speed boat and off to visit a local village - Ko Panyi.


This is a photo of their grocery store. And the local tailor.


It sure makes you appreciate what we have here at home!


Most of the structures (homes and businesses) were on these stilts. It kind of makes me wonder what it's like when the weather is nasty.


After leaving the village, we went by James Bond Island which is where part of the film The Man with the Golden Gun was filmed. Then off to a beach for a catered lunch.


I'm not super adventurous when it comes to food so my plate looks pretty bland but there was lots of variety!


Before we left we had been following the weather in Phuket. It didn't look good. July is part of their rainy season and all we saw was rain and very little sunshine. But we lucked out. We did have rain everyday but for the most part it was short lived. And we were quite thankful for the cloudy skies because that meant the sun wasn't beating down on us and making it even hotter than it was.


The last two days we did get a bit more rain. And ended up at a beach restaurant for a lot longer than anticipated because of the storm that blew in.


Our final event was a dinner catered by the Blue Elephant restaurant. They had entertainment, delicious food and drinks and local artisans creating and selling their artworks. It was such a lovely way to end the trip!

Stampin' Up! really does spoil us on these trips. I can't even imagine all the work that goes into these events! But I certainly do appreciate them! I could go on and on talking about the gifts that SU gave us, the treats in the hospitality room and so on but I think I'll stop for now. Hope you enjoyed the little peak into our Thailand trip!

Have a creative day!
Sherry

Bullet Journal Flip Through

Have you heard of a bullet journal? In a nut it is a fabulous way to help you stay organized. You can read more about it at bulletjournal.com. There are lots of variations of it. The system itself has so much potential and can be whatever you need it to be. That's what makes it so perfect!

I have been following the Bullet Journal community for almost a year now and finally broke down and started my own in March. If you love notebooks and lists, you will love bullet journaling! Here are a few photos of some of my spreads.


This is a list of projects I want to accomplish in 2017. I better get my butt in gear, the year is almost done and I still have lots to accomplish:)

I used the Up & Away Thinlits as a stencil for the hot air balloons and the clouds. As the projects are completed I color them in. On the left are the projects and on the right, each project is broken down into manageable tasks.


This is another collection - The places I've been and the places I'd like to go. All the stamps on these pages are from retired Stampin' Up! sets. I love how it turned out!


This is one of my weekly spreads. This format has evolved from the way I initially started. That is what makes a bullet journal so perfect! It can be customized to meet your needs. The more you use it, the more perfect it becomes.

Here's a quick flip through of my bullet journal.




Thanks for watching!
Sherry
