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.
