Parisian Memories – Maui Achievers January Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the January  Maui Trip Achievers’ Blog Hop.

Those hopping today are all Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who met the requirements to earn the amazing 2020 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Maui. While every demo can work towards and potentially earn the trip, only a limited number of demos (less than 1% of all demonstrators) reach the level required to earn the trip each year.

As Achieving Demonstrators, we hop together once a month to show you ideas and designs using “current” Stampin’ Up! products.

With the recent launch of the 2020 January-June Mini Catalogue I am sure the hop is going to full of magnificent creations showcasing lots of new products.

I’m featuring products from the Parisian Blossoms Suite in my project.

I loved this suite as soon as I saw it for a number of reasons. Firstly  – it’s Paris! Need I say more! But there is more. It is thanks to Stampin’ Up! that I finally got to visit my biggest bucket list destination in 2016 – the year I went on my first Incentive Trip – the Mediterranean Cruise. After the cruise, Roy and I went on a European  road trip which included several days in Paris. It was our 30th wedding anniversary in 2016 and we organised to renew our wedding vows overlooking the Eiffel Tower! So the Eiffel Tower Dies were a must have. And the sentiments in the stamp sets are awesome – with those in the Parisian Beauty stamp set also being perfect for memory keeping.

So using this set in a project for the Achievers Blog Hop is really appropriate.

Parisian Memory Box

Parisian Memories

I have created a Memory Box to keep momentos and photos from our trip – though it could be used to store all sorts of things – or simply a home decor piece. The lid could also make a Great Wall hanging!

I picked up a Kraft lidded box to decorate but you could also use a sturdy shoe box.

The Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder has amazing detail – and those Champange Rhinestones add some classy bling!

Designs products that co-ordinate – not just within a suite – or within one catalogue – but across the whole range of products. Ive teamed the Parisian Blossom’s Petal Pink Metallic-Edged ribbon from the Mini with the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon and the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon.

Parisian Blossoms Suite


Here’s the Memory Box as part of the Parisian Blossoms Suite display from my Catalogue launches which I held over the last couple of days.

Second Project

By adding some diecuts from the Parisian Dies, I’ve quickly updated a couple of photo frames I had previously put together from our Vow Renewal by

Parisian Photo Frames

Here’s a close-up of one.

Did you notice that my dress from our day in Paris had red poppies on it? I’d chosen it specifically for our Vow Renewal in Paris.

How cool is that in the Mini Catalogue also have a whole suite based on poppies? The Peaceful Poppies Suite.

So I just had wear my Paris poppy dress at my Mini Catalogue launches in honour of these two suites – Parisian Blossoms and the Peaceful Poppies Suites.
