Blog Hop: Alaska Achievers October Blog Hop

Sarah Berry Stampin’ Up! UK Independent Demonstrator | Blog Hop: Alaska Achievers October Blog Hop

Every year Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators aim high and work hard to earn points. You can exchange a whopping 160,000 points for an amazing incentive trip for you and your spouse/friend. I’m thrilled to have earned the next incentive trip to Alaska in 2018, it’s a bit of a wait until we go, but to be honest I would wait for as long as it takes.

This will be my 4th trip which is amazing (Maderia 2015, Mediterain Cruise 2016, Thailand 2017 previously). I’m currently busy aiming for the 2019 trip which is a Greek Isles Cruise! WOW! Every time you shop with me, order a craft box, download a tutorial, visit me at a local class, YOU are supporting me and helping me get that little bit closer to earning yet another trip of a lifetime! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Today’s blog hop card has been inspired by the climate of Alaska, perhaps I’ll need a good pair of mittens when I go? It’s certainly a complete contrast to this year’s incentive trip in Thailand. This set is a new bundle in Stampin’ Up!’s Autumn/Winter Catalogue, called the Smitten Mittens Bundle. I love a bit of knitting and have recently taken up crochet. It’s taken me a few goes, but I’ve finally found my flow. I’m currently half way through a blanket, one kids play teapot and I’ve completed two woolly hats. Perhaps I should get making a pair of mittens?

The colour palette today is Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Marina Mist and Soft Sky. I got my BigShot out and these dies cut beautifully on my regular platform. The details on the mitten are so cute! A full list of the products I used today can be found under the full blog hop list.
