Stampin’ Up! 2019 Greek Isles – Cruising…Cruising….and a 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek!

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend – and have enjoyed the pictures of Rome!

We’re on Day One – or…two?…of the cruise.  And by the time you get this – Amy, Anna, Wayne and I will be in a cupcake decorating class.

Yes – you read me right! 🙂  We’re all taking a cupcake decorating class on the ship.  I think it will be fun – and am pretty sure we get to eat our creations! 🙂

In anticipation of eating our homework….I started my day doing…

…while watching THIS go by on the starboard side!  Stromboli!  No – in this case it’s a vocanic island – NOT a food!

Oh yea.  We also saw the new Holiday catalog earlier today! 😉

We sort of got a glimpse of it when we arrived to the ship on Sunday.  After the first of many eating sessions, we hit the SU! hospitality room and spun for our first “gift”!  Here’s a look-see at what I won…I WONDER what the stamp set that matches this looks like!! 😉

One of the cool things (among a TON of cool things!!) about our incentive trips is a little thing callled…pillow gifts!

A pillow gift is a….well…GIFT…from Stampin’ Up!  The room stewards bring them and leave them in our rooms in the evenings, usually when we’re at dinner or out just cruising the decks (yes – I did that).  Our first one arrived on Sunday!  OPA!

What is that clipped to the top you ask?!?  Check it!

Stampin’ Dimensionals.


But wait! Those are…black!?!?  Holy smokes!!  AWESOME-SAUCE!!  You KNOW how I feel about dimensionals!! 🙂

Inside – we discovered a super cool bag – it’s a leather purse/daypack!!  🙂

That’s going to come in really handy, I know – and it’s so pretty!! 🙂

On Monday morning we had our general session where we got to see (and get!!) some of the new goodies in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  Check out the cover!

This fun Apple Builder Punch has a bundled stamp set called Harvest Hellos – and it can be an apple – or a pumpkin!

The Christmas Gleaming set is part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite – and is bundled with the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (a set of TWO large punches) and some of the prettiest paper ever – the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.

The Toile Christmas set will make Cardinal lovers’ hearts flutter – especially given that there’s a matching set of Christmas Cardinal Dies!!

The final stamp set we got today is the Tags Tags Tags set – with a bundle of dies called Trio of Tags!

And there are some wonderful copper-foil embellishments, too!

So – the cruise is under way!  We’re at sea on Monday and Monday night and then get into Santorini for our first port on Tuesday!  So – more pictures will be coming!  DO watch my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page – I’ve already posted some pictures of the ship and our cabin.  You should expect some cupcake masterpieces in the near future, too! 😉






On our last day of sightseeing, Wayne and Igor and I posed for a final family picture against the skyline of Rome!
