Maui Achievers October Blog Hop

Hello.  I’m joining the Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop this month.  It’s my first time to hop with this group and the first month of the Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop.  I’m so excited to have earned this incentive trip and go on one of my bucket list trips.  And equally excited to join this blog hop for the first time – let’s hope that I got everything right!

This was one of the projects that we made at my Fall Retreat earlier this month.  It’s a quick project and can easily be adapted for other holiday’s or occasions.  You can watch my FB Live from October 14th to see how I made this fun tic tac holders –

Snowman Tic Tac Treat Holder

This project uses a 2″ wide strip of card stock and a tag topper punch.  Add a wrapped piece of Designer Series Paper and ribbon at the top.  These would be quick and easy to make.  See below for the supplies and measurements.

Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop – October

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for October. This is our first hop with those that have earned the incentive trip with Stampin’ Up!® to Thailand next July. This month our theme is the “Inspired by Nature” as many of us live in different areas around the world and have amazing seasons that we are enjoying. Plus the nature in Thailand is just incredible so we are inspired by our trip too. I’m very excited to be a part of this exclusive group of demonstrators!!
UPDATE:  My blog is not part of the hop anymore – sorry – my blog platform won’t play nice with the others.  So I’ll just share my project and hopefully you can get on to one of the other hoppers sites and go through the hop all the way.
Here in Georgia in the United States it is Fall/Autumn.  The leaves on the trees are changing into a variety of colors and they and the acorns are falling everywhere right now.  So my projects were inspired by that.  I created these for the Fall Retreat I just had at my home this past weekend.  Everyone received this as one of their little gifts at their table – a bag of trail mix and a water bottle with a cute hanging tag.
I used the Moroccan Designer Series Paper for this project along with the Leaflets Framelits and the Cheerful Tags Framelits.  I love the little copper pine cones in our holiday catalogs – I tied those to my leaves with some Linen Thread.  And behind the leaves is a little bunch of our Copper Thread.  Here is a closer look at each one.


I die cut the leaves our of Delightful Dijon card stock and the Moroccan Designer Paper then I left the framelit on the die cut and traced around the inside of the leaf.  I really like how it adds some definition to the leaves.

The trail mix is inside one of the 2×8″ cello bags that are in the annual catalog.  I stapled the tag over the top of the filled bag.  And then covered the staples with the leaves.  The little tags on each project are 1/4″ strips of Very Vanilla card stock but I die cut the end with the leaf die so I could tie it into the bundle of leaves.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
