A fun Paper Pouch for this week's Global Design Project


Today, I am playing along with this week's Global Design Project Challenge. #GDP199. It's a Theme challenge and it's titled "For the Love of Craft"

Well, how could I resist this one! Stampin up! has so many things to choose from for this challenge!



Here's  what I came up with using the stamp set called Crafting Forever. These fun pouches are made with 2 paper lunch bags and they can be stuffed with so many things for any occasion.  Wouldn't these make a fun gift for Birthday or Christmas or Halloween? There are so many things you could fill them with!

I actually made these a few years ago for pillow gifts for a girls trip and I filled them with "girly" things like an eye mask, hand lotion, nail file and some fun treats. You can see those in this post.

Because the theme is crafting, I chose to fill mine with Stampin up! supplies.

I absolutely love the Crafting Forever stamp set!

In April of 2017, I had the privilege of demonstrating with this set at Onstage. There are so many ways to use  the stamps in this set.

Here's my video showing how I made these ...

Back from an AMAZING incentive Trip!


Oh what a great trip we had on the Stampin up! Incentive trip! My husband and I enjoyed a seven day Cruise of the Greek Isles and it was honestly like a dream!

Because I know you all helped me earn this trip, I would like to share some of my pictures with you! I have sooo many photos, so I have decided to share them a little each day. Here's my recap of Day #1

Here we are on the plane, ready to go! So excited!


We travelled to Toronto and had a 3 hour stop over and then we flew 8 1/2 hour to Rome. We arrived around 10:00 am the next morning. We didn't sleep a single wink on the plane so we were pretty tired one the 1 hour bus ride form the airport to the Cruise ship Terminal.

Here we are after being up all night LOL...


We made it to the ship and it felt so good to check into our room and have a shower and a little rest.



Stampin up! gives all the achievers a balcony room. It was so nice to wake up and see right out at the ocean every morning.IMG_1304

I could look out at the ocean all day!


Here's a look at the door hangings they put on everyone's doors on the ship! They go through lots of effort to make us feel special. 
After, we freshened up and had a rest, we headed to the hospitality room where all the Achievers get to spin the wheel for a prize every day. 



These we went for a walk around the ship and met some great friends that we have cruised with before! We have missed them!


Stampin up! spoiled us with an amazing spread of food and music at the Sailaway party poolside.

 I got to meet up with some more SU friends, whom I hardly get the chance to see. It's great to catch up with them!

Here's Anne, Bonnie and I

After the party, we returned to find this awesome Pillow gift!


Here's the tag attached... A sneak peek! Black Stampin Dimensionals!!! Say What?


Here's what was inside the bag.. A brand new GORGEOUS Purse!!!


It so beautiful!! I absolutely love that it's a back pack too! Stampin up! really spoils us on these trips!

Day #1 was absolutely amazing!! I am truly grateful to Stampin up!, my Team members and all my customers both online and in person. I could not imagine a better dream come true. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
