Stampin’ Up! European Incentive Trip Swaps!

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Incentive Trip Swaps!


Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Incentive Trip Swaps!


So as of 3 days ago, Chris and I have been out in Madeira on the Stampin’ Up! European Incentive Trip.

It was over 15 months ago that I earned this trip, and I have been looking forward to it pretty much every day since!

At the time of writing this (in advance of course!) I have absolutely no idea what will be happening on the trip, but I’m sure it will be a lot of fun, a trip of a lifetime, and a rare opportunity to get together with other European demos.

There are only 54 of us on the trip and we were all invited to take part in swapping projects with one another.

I decided to take part, and this is mine!

It’s very ‘me’ and I’m fully aware that my style is quite distinctive, so decided to stay true to myself and with 54 to make, that’s never been more ideal!!!

Using the Notecards and Envelopes has always proved invaluable for swapping, and with my love of Glimmer Paper, I had to include it really!

Tip Top Taupe is also very much my colour of the moment, so I kept my mat and stamping to that – Perpetual Birthday Calendar of course – with the added detail of the Petite Petals and Itty Bitty Accents punches.

It was a fast project to mass produce, mostly I think because the main cutting of the card blank had been done, but I love it nonetheless, and I can’t wait to share what I received in return!

    Hope you are having a ripper of a time Sam. Your swap SCREAMS Pootlicious goodness.

  2. Fun card. Look forward to seeing the swaps you received too. Some of my German friends have posted pics from Maderia – what a beautiful place, sure you are having a well deserved

  3. I love glimmer paper, I think it’s so striking and posh. I’m seeing lots of cards with Tip Top Taupe and it is starting to become another of the Incolors that I really like. I think the pearl embellishments add a touch of classic elegance and dimension. Great job Sam
