Maui Achievers June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Maui Achievers June Blog Hop. Keep reading to see a card I created with a fun, new suite of Stampin’ Up! products.

Maui Achievers Blog Hop

We’re a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who have achieved the Stampin’ Up! bonus of the Maui trip. We celebrate this achievement by organizing a monthly hop which helps us to continue to inspire you creatively.
You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there’s a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed – so if you’re looking for a demonstrator these are top demonstrators in their country and would love to help you with your Stampin’ Up! shopping or if you’d like to join our Stampin’ Up! teams. Be sure to visit all of the blogs and leave a comment.

A Basset Hound Named Max

Maui Achievers Blog Hop

An old scrapbook page featuring our dog Max and our son.

Almost twenty years ago, a puppy we named Max joined our family. We felt lucky to have him with us for more than 10 years. He was oh so cute, but he could be oh so naughty! More than once, he stole food items off of the kitchen counter such as sticks of butter, loaves of bread, and even tomatoes. Weighing in at more than 50 pounds, he thought he was a lap dog! Max left us about 12 years ago, but we talk about him often.

So, I’m partial to any dog-related stamp set or Designer Series Paper or embellishments. I love Stampin’ Up!’s new Playful Pets Suite. (No worries if you’re a cat lover. Cats are represented in this set, as well!)

Playful Pets Suite

Maui Achievers June Blog Hop

This suite offers a host of fun elements I used to create today’s card:

  • Pampered Pets Stamp Set
  • Playful Pets Designer Series Paper
  • Pets Dies
  • Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack
  • Playful Pets Trinkets

Maui Achivers June Blog Hop

Everything about this suite is super cute! A fun feature of the Designer Series Paper and dies is that the dies not only cut the stamped dog image but also the images on the Designer Series Paper. You can see that I used the dog image from the paper on this card. The same holds true for the cat images. Remember, when you purchase the stamp set and dies together, you receive a 10 percent discount on the bundle.

I also embossed the Real Red card stock front of the card with the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder and added one of the Stitched Nested Labels.

Thanks for stopping by today. Let me know if you have questions about today’s card or any other paper crafting concern.


Below is a list of all the awesome stampers participating in the blog hop today.

These 2 x 2 Clear Acetate Boxes make perfect receptacles for a variety of treats. I used the same supplies for this package as the card. I added the Misty Moonlight In Color Ribbon to top off the package.

#simplestamping In Colors and Lovely You

I’m sharing a #simplestamping card using Stampin’ Up’s New In Colors and the Lovely You stamp set.

#simplestamping In Colors and Lovely You

Even though I’ve been stamping for about twenty-five years, I still get excited when a brand-new catalog comes out. (And I love it even more as a demonstrator because we receive sneak peeks and a chance to order ahead of time. Ask me how you can receive these same benefits.)

I love playing with all of the new stamps and coordinating framelits, inks, papers, and embellishments. And, we all look forward to using the newest In Colors. This 2020-2022 In Colors include: Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, Magenta Madness, Bumble Bee, and Cinnamon Cider. Offerings include ink pads, ink refills, card stock, coordinating Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Write Markers, ribbon, enamel dots, and a selection of Stampin’ Blends.

#simplestamping In Colors and Lovely You


Each month, Stampin’ Up! issues a #simplestamping challenge. For June, it asks that we create a card using just rubber stamps, ink, paper, and the In Colors. My card features all of the colors as well as images from the brand-new Lovely You stamp set.

#simplestamping In Colors and Lovely You

I stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 5 inches x 3 3/4 inches. Using an assortment of stamps from the set, I added the images with all of the 2020-2022 In Colors. The second layer, Magenta Madness, measures 5 1/4 inches x 4 inches, and the Misty Moonlight base is 5 1/2 inches x 4 1/4 inches.

The sentiment piece is 5 inches x 1 inch. And, I cut the Magenta Madness layering piece at 5 inches x 1 1/8 inches.

The 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog has been live since the beginning of June. Make time to play with all of the current goodies.
