Stampin' Up! Cruise in Review - Part 2

There were over 800 of us in the Stampin' Up! group on board the Allure of the Seas and I loved that it was like cruising with 800 of my friends!  Everyone wore a special lanyard with our name tags so no matter where we were on the ship, we were always able to spot others in the group (and make new friends along the way!).  We met people from Australia, Germany, and France!  This was a global vacation for sure!

This is my friend, Genevieve, from Canada.  We met last year at Founder's Circle and have stayed in touch ever since.

Not only are we friends, but our daughters were pen pals for the past several months and they became instant friends, too!  We sure enjoyed hanging out with them during this trip!

Hanging out with Selene and Kay in the Hospitality Room.

The friendships I (and now my family) have made because of Stampin' Up! have been priceless!

3D Project Ideas from the Ship:

Wouldn't this be a fun origami fold card to receive?  It's created using 1 piece of 12 X 12" card stock and then scored and folded to create this fun look.  I slid the belly band down a little on the project so you can see how it starts to unfold.  The band holds everything closed.

Great way to showcase any designer series papers, too!

Isn't this a cute pop up type card?  I'm thinking that it would fold nicely in half to slide into an envelope (it might be a little tight with the ribbon, though).  There wasn't an envelope around to try it but this is one I'll be working on will keep you posted if I figure it out.

Top view of this fun fold card.  The tops of each piece are punched using the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (quickly one of my favorites!).

This is an adorable slider box with a gift inside.  The little gift in this project was a reusable shopping bag (love the colors of the bag!).

Another version of a fun fold card using the Scalloped Tap Topper Punch.  In this one, the tags slide out of the little pockets and everything folds up nicely (see the second pic below).

Cruising with friends, meeting new ones and sharing creativity was just amazing and memorable.  Can't imagine being without my stamping friends!  Thank you Stampin' Up!!
