I'm getting SO EXCITED! Next weekend at this time I'll be enjoying the Stampin' Up! Alaskan Cruise incentive trip! Woohoo!
This is the third trip that I've earned, but the first one that I've been able to attend! It's an all-expense paid trip for me and a guest, and from what I hear, Stampin' Up! makes it a memorable experience! I've received my Alaska luggage tags and information from Stampin' Up! a few weeks ago to help me prepare. The grand incentive trip is designed to be a true vacation, not a "stamping" event, so I'm looking forward to spending time relaxing and getting to know my fellow trip achievers and their families.
I've never been on a cruise before, so I'm excited for the chance to explore the ship and discover fun things at each port. Are you a cruise veteran? I'd love your best tips for packing or making the most of the trip. Please share your comments and recommendations on this blog post!
I'm not sure if I'll post anything from the trip until I return, but I'll have plenty of projects on my blog while I'm gone. I'll also be announcing an Alaska Cruise special for online orders placed while I'm gone, so stay tuned for that info coming out next week.
Join Me On The 2020 Incentive Trip! I'm on track to earn the next incentive trip to the Greek Isles in 2019 (woohoo!), and we're coming to the end of the earning period for that one. The 2020 Incentive Trip will be announced soon and I'd love for you to join me! Join my team now and I'll help you earn it! You'll also receive a bonus of 10 FREE Ink Pads in July only.

Today, I'm sharing a couple of cards that features the stamps & framelits from the Tranquil Textures suite! What better way to get in the mood for sailing the sea on my wonderful adventure!
Background Basics—I adhered a 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Tranquil Textures "wavy" patterned Designer Series Paper and a 3-1/2" x 2-1/4" Soft Sea Foam pattern of the DSP onto a 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" piece of Navy of Night cardstock.
Next, I tied the Night of Navy Medium Baker's Twine around the layers at the seam, then tied it into a bow. It's popped up with Dimensionals onto a Tranquil Tide card base.
Layered Elements—I die-cut the netting from Sahara Sand cardstock using the Under The Sea Framelits and the Precision Base Plate for intricate cutting. I adhered it to the card front using SNAIL adhesive only under where the greeting will be, leaving the edges free. I also die-cut the small sand dollar from Night of Navy cardstock and the larger sand dollar from Mint Macaron cardstock. They are attached with Glue Dots.
Sentiment Layer—The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy ink onto an oval Whisper White die-cut created with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. It's popped up with Dimensionals. I die-cut the Tranquil Tide starfish, which is the middle of a sand dollar, and attached it with a Glue Dot to the sentiment.
Bundle It & SAVE—Purchase the Sea of Textures stamp set and Under The Sea Framelits together in a bundle to save 10%.
Two Cool—For the second version, I changed the Tranquil Textures DSP to the bubbles pattern and the Mint Macaron pattern. It's mounted on a Night of Navy layer, then popped up onto a Fresh Fig card base.
Lovely Layers—I changed the colors of the sand dollars to Night of Navy for the large and Fresh Fig for the small. The starfish is Mint Macaron. Otherwise, everything is the same.
