Go For Greece September Blog Hop - Tranquil Textures Framed Art

Hi Crafters!

I am so excited to be hopping with the final Go For Greece Blog Hop for the Stampin' Up year & with some very good news - I earned Greece! Thank you so much to Kylie Bertucci for organising the group & giving so much support, and for all the speakers in the group & sharing so much of your wisdom. I highly recommend this training to not only earn the trip but also to build your business. Make sure you hop around the blog hop & leave a little love, you'll find the participants list under my pics.

I was lucky enough to receive these gorgeous flowers from my two uplines (Kylie & Kate), two sidelines (Missy & Linda) & one downline (Koren)! Thank you for spoiling me, ladies! And my house smells amazing!

I'm very excited I can take my husband away on a FREE trip for two, a week cruising through the Greek Isles & leaving from Rome, which is where we spent part of our honeymoon!

With the support of the Go For Greece Training Group, I was also able to launch my first stamp camp! I had six lovely ladies come along for two days of crafting fun, where we played with eight different suites. Come back over the next week or two as I show off all the samples.

Here was the piece de resistance! A beautiful home decor piece of framed art using the Tranquil Textures Suite of products.

I have stamped the background Octopi in Tranquil Tide ink & the popped up one (on Dimensionals) is stamped in Night of Navy on Soft Sea Foam cardstock. I have used the Precision Plate on the Big Shot to cut out all the little seaweed. There is also a die for the Octopus & stamps for the seaweed, but I just used the die cuts. The Die Brush also got used a lot to get the cuts out of the dies. I have used Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide & Soft Sea Foam for the die cuts.

I have used the Tranquil Textures Sprinkles for bubbles & sand along the bottom of the frame. I have also used the Copper & Rose Metallic Threads just in a mess all along the bottom of the page, then stuck the seaweed over the top. It adds a nice little bit of sparkle.

Did you know the Copper Trim is actually like a little tube? You can carefully poke your snips into the center & cut along one edge, then gently pull it open & it goes all wavy along the edge on it's own. There is also an Irredescent Boxwood Wreath uncoiled & used as seaweed. I've stapled it in place & then covered with seaweed die cuts & Sprinkles.

Here are all the lovely ladies with their creations.

And some close ups for you. I love how they are all unique.

We all had so much fun & I was so happy that I had the confidence to step out of my comfort zone & organise such a big craft event! I'm looking forward to holding more Stamp Camps in the future! I have already got some plans for a November Holiday Catalog Stamp Camp in Geelong & two January Occasions/Sale-A-Brations in Geelong & Loch, South Gippsland. Stay tuned for more info on that or feel free to email me if you're interested -

Thank you Kylie for being an amazing inspiration, support & leader. You are the bomb! xx

  3. Super cool projects. Thank you for the inspiration!

  4. Congratulations on achieving the Greece incentive trip Jessie. To think only awhile ago you were trying so hard to convince your hubby you can do this as a business. Well done Jessie you proved to everyone that is a business, you are a businesswoman and that it can be done.
    I hope you and hubby enjoy reminiscing your honeymoon when you arrive in Rome before the Cruise to the Greek Isles..
    I also would like to say I like the projects made. I think it is nice to see the 3D projects come alive from a sheet of Cardstock. Make a card to match and you have the whole gift..

  5. Love your project Jessie. Congratulations on achieving Greece! Knew you could do it x

  6. Congratulations on achieving Greece Jessie, so well deserved. You have worked so hard to build you business. Great projects too. Thanks for sharing
