Thailand Achievers Blog Hop Banner


Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for May 2017! This month our theme is the "2017/2018 New Annual Catalog Sneak Peeks". We want to show you some of the AMAZING products that are available for demonstrators to order right now and soon for you!  (June 1st to be exact!) So if you join Stampin' Up! NOW, you are able to get your hands on this new product early. I'm convinced you are going to love this new catalog as much as I do!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Georgia Giguere, or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.  Trust me, you won't want to miss even one!  At the moment you are visiting Georgia Giguere.


Have you been loving seeing all the ideas using the new products included in the current May promotion, the Eastern Palace Bundles?  Oh my, the ideas are endless!  I decided to blend the Eastern Medallions Framelits (part of the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle) for my sneak peek card!  I love how it turned out and it is an entirely different look for the style of the bundle!  I'm calling it Eastern Palace Sunflower!
