I have to tell you that I truly loved the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Alaska. If you have never been to Alaska you have to go sometime.  I can tell you about the places we have seen and what we love.  It’s one place that I would visit again and try to see some different areas next time. 

Not only was the destination wonderful but Stampin’ Up! spoils us for sure.  Every day we had a Pillow Gift on our bed in the evening and every day we got to spin a prize wheel.  At the start of the cruise we had a kickoff event where we saw stamping presentations, got prizes and got our copy of the 2018 Holiday Catalog!  In the afternoon I sat out on the balcony with my wine and enjoyed browsing through all the new products.  The Holiday catalog starts on September 5th – so it won’t be long now.

Catching up with friends and making new friends are also a highlight of the trip.  Stampin’ Up! even organized a swap for everyone.  Those that participated designed a card and made a bunch (I think it was about 26).  We turn them in, they swap them out and hand us back a bag filled with 26 different cards from demonstrators all over the world that joined us on the trip.  Today I thought I’d show you my swap card.

I really loved how this one turned out.  It features my new favorite color Gray Granite.  And I used the stamp set from the Notes of Kindness Card Kit.  I love the kit and wanted to feature the stamp set in a different way.  Here is a full list of supplies.

This is one of my favorite photos from the trip and has similar colors in it. The grays, greens and white.  This was taken from the Yukon Suspension Bridge over the river in Canada during one of our excursions. 

It was an amazing view and an incredible excursion that I’d highly recommend.  This was on our stop in Skagway.
