Enjoy Life Cyclist Card for the Stampin' Up! Masculine Theme Stampers Showcase Blog Hope July 2019

Welcome to the Stamper's Showcase July 2019 Blog Hop!  This month we're working on a "Masculine" theme, which seems to be a tough one for a lot of people, so it will be great to have all these wonderful ideas to inspire us.  

If you've been following the projects I've been making recently you've probably already determined that I seem to be obsessed with Stampin' Up!s amazing See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper.  I have yet to use it with the actual See a Silhouette stamp set, but it's so versatile I've been pairing it with everything else - including the cyclist image from the Enjoy Life stamp set!  
I started with a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 scrap of the honeycomb paper pattern.  Turning it with the greenish shades on the bottom and the blues on the top and dab of yellow made it look to me like grassy mountains and a sunny sky.  
Though I'm not exactly sure who I will send this cyclist card to I love the sentiment as it's the perfect motivational statement for anyone working to accomplish a goal or overcome an obstacle!

Hand Lettered Greece Cards & Cow Tail Treat Swaps for the Stampin' Up! Greek Isles Trip Achievers Blog Hop July 2019

Welcome to the July 2019 Greek Isles Trip Achievers Blog Hop!  We've just returned from the Stampin' Up! Greek Isles Cruise and it was absolutely amazing!  The scenery was breathtaking, the food was delicious, it was great to catch up with stamping friends from around the world, and Stampin' Up! really spoiled us.

One of the highlights of any Stampin' Up! event is swapping cards/projects we have made with other demonstrators to share ideas and inspire one another.  I wanted to create something that would be a memento of the trip so I made these cards that spell out the word "Greece" using the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper and the Hand-Lettered Prose alphabet dies.   
My favorite pattern of the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper is the one with the shades of blue and swirls of white that looks like rolling waves.  However, as I had 26 cards to make and only 2 sheets of the wave pattern I decided that some of the other patterns from the paper pack looked fun and worked just as well so I made a whole variety of "Greece" cards.  I hope everyone who received one liked them!
I also participated in the 3-D swap.  This swap is a bit trickier as the objects we need to keep in mind the portability, weight, and melting factor of the swaps we make.  I decided that something representative of NY, USA that demonstrators from other parts of the world might not have were Cow Tales candies.  I found mini Cow Tales, tied a trio of them with burlap ribbon, and then added the "You're udderly fantastic!" punch art.  I thought they were fun and tasty too!
Here are a couple photos of the amazing gifts and swaps I brought home:
We received several beautiful bags, many stamp sets and punches, and of course the new Stampin' Up! Fall/Winter/Holiday Catalog too!
My husband and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to attend this trip of a lifetime!  Stampin' Up! really is an amazing company to rep for and has enabled us to travel to so many different places we would never have seen otherwise.  Many thanks to my wonderful customers and Creative "Card"-iologists Team for helping me earn the trip!

Stampin’ Up! Travel Layout for Scrapbooking Global July 2019 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Scrapbooking Global July 2019 Blog Hop!  We're a group of scrapbookers who use Stampin' Up! products to create our page layouts.  
Our theme this month is "Travel" which is pretty fitting considering I've just recently returned from the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip Greek Isles Cruise.  I've only been home a few days so I haven't had a chance to get any of my thousands of photos developed yet, but I've at least got a start on my album with one page ready to go!  

For the base of my page I chose a sheet of the "wave" pattern Designer Series Paper from the See a Silhouette pack.  I love the abstract watercolor look of this paper, and though it would coordinate well with my photos from Santorini, Greece of the whitewashed limestone villages against the clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea.
I stamped the sailboat accent piece with stamps from the Lilypad Lake stamp set and the quote is from the Enjoy Life stamp set.  I liked the part about each day of life being a "precious privilege," and being able to see the amazing beauty of the Greek Isles first-hand was certainly a precious privilege I'll cherish forever.
I stamped the page banner with sentiments from the Lilypad Lake stamp set that say:  "To see far is one thing...Going there is another."  Seeing pictures someone else took of Greece is one thing,  but actually traveling there to see it for myself was quite another!  I accented the stamping with three blue rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack.  These have quickly become my new favorite embellishment!
I hope you've enjoyed my scrapbook page here at www.jessbcreativecardiology.com.  Please be sure to check out the fun travel pages of the other blog hop participants for additional scrapbooking inspiration!
