Pretty Peacock Daisy Card

My favorite new In Color is Pretty Peacock, but you could make this card with any color! I made the measurements easy for multiples. Start with a 6" x 6" piece of designer paper and cut it into four 3" x 3" pieces. Layer the designer paper on 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" Whisper White squares. To stick with the monochromatic theme, I used Whisper White cardstock to die cut the word "hooray" using the Well Written dies. Quick and easy!

    Control Freaks Blog Tour: Simple to Stepped Up with Sailing Home

    Whether you are coming from the creative and talented Melissa Stout's or just joining us -- welcome to the July 2019 Control Freaks Blog Tour! I am super excited about our theme this month! It's Simple to Stepped Up! We are highlighting simple projects for any stamper and then showing how to step it up with additional stamping supplies. So whether you are a brand new stamper, a casual stamper with a small collection, or an avid crafter like me who has it all -- we've got you covered!

    Stampin' Up! Sailing Home: Simple to Stepped Up ~ July 2019 Control Freaks Blog Tour ~ 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog ~ www.juliedavison.com

    I am featuring the Come Sail Away Suite with three different cards. The first one is very, very simple. Stamps, ink, and paper! I love the Notecards & Envelopes for quick and easy cards like this one.
    Stampin' Up! Sailing Home: Simple to Stepped Up ~ July 2019 Control Freaks Blog Tour ~ 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog ~ www.juliedavison.com

    Using the same ink and stamps, I added some of the coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Paper, a punch, and some twine. This is still a pretty clean and simple card, but includes easy layering.
    Stampin' Up! Sailing Home: Simple to Stepped Up ~ July 2019 Control Freaks Blog Tour ~ 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog ~ www.juliedavison.com

    You could use a pair of scissors or the Triple Banner Punch to cut the banner tip in this 2" tag, but I love this tip that my friend Monica showed me. You can use the #145567 Tailored Tag Punch to punch a banner tip -- or a pointed tip -- in addition to punching a fun tag shape. This versatile punch is a must-have!

    For my last "stepped up" card, I added the Smooth Sailing dies to cut out the stamped image and add embellishment. I also used one of the Sail Away trinkets, tied with a piece of twine.

    Daisy Lane Smile Card

    I was inspired by the Global Design Project Challenge #198 to create this card. This week's challenge is a card layout. I've had a piece of this shiny Noble Peacock Designer Paper on my desk all month and I love the way it looks like a white daisy punch out. Do you have the new Medium Daisy Punch? I love this new size and it coordinates with the new Daisy Lane stamp set! You can save 10% when you buy them both together!

    Greek Isles Cruise Highlights + Holiday Catalog Sneak Peeks

    Greek Isles Cruise Highlights  + Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Sneak Peeks ~ www.juliedavison.comI had hoped to pre-schedule some blog posts while I was gone, but I ran out of time! We just got back from the Greek Isles Stampin' Up! incentive trip! It was amazing! Thank you to all of my customers and team members who helped me earn this amazing dream vacation!
    Photos can not quite capture the beauty of the Mediterranean, but here are highlights from our trip. After a day of cruising from Rome, our first port was Santorini! We took the cable car to the top and started our guided tour with a stop in Oia with amazing views of white-washed buildings and blue domes.

     Part of our tour in Santorini included a stop at a family winery where we enjoyed a tour of the museum and a wine tasting.

    Next up was Mykonos. We had hoped to do a snorkeling excursion, but it didn't work out before the trip, so we enjoyed sleeping in and got off the boat in the afternoon to do a little shopping in this quaint seaside town.

    Pineapple Gelato

    Next up was Athens! We were very lucky with temps in the low 80's (it was over 100 degrees the day before!) -- it was perfect weather for our guided tour of the Acropolis. We started at the museum where we learned a lot about the history of the Parthenon. History came to life on the hill!

    Our tour included a tasting of some authentic Greek food at a local restaurant near the fish and meat market. I am not an adventurous eater, but enjoyed trying everything!

    We stopped by the Parliment building just in time to see the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider in Syntagma Square.
    Greek Isles Cruise Highlights  + Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Sneak Peeks ~ www.juliedavison.com

    Our last port was Katakolo, Greece!  We enjoyed another slow-paced day with some seaside shopping and a train tram ride to the beach, where we took a refreshing dip in the saltwater!

    On the ship, we enjoyed visiting with our demonstrator friends and their guests and making new friends! It is always a treat to share this experience with my parents. As many of you know, Mom was my first recruit 17 years ago and I am so proud of how hard she works to earn these trips!

    While the purpose of the trip is definitely a reward and vacation, we do have the opportunity to network with other demonstrators and the Leadership Team. I was happy to chat up and share some feedback. But mostly I was excited for the reveal of the 2019 Holiday Catalog. We got a sneak peek during the general session with product demonstrations and the make and take sessions.
