Each year roughly 400 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators earn enough flex points to redeem for the incentive trip, and I’m fortunate to have achieved this milestone again.
After earning my first Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip to Alaska last year, which was so beautiful, I was excited to go somewhere a little warmer – Italy and the Greek Isles. With the recent heat wave across Europe the Greek Isles definitely didn’t disappoint, and Stampin’ UP! once again spoiled us with daily prizes, pillow gifts, and a lot of fun with other achievers.
I’ll share a brief recap of the highlights of the trip including some of the gifts I received and the card swap. In my last Facebook Live I went into detail and showed a lot more examples, so check out this video recap if you’re interested.
Rome and Greek Isles – 2019 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip
We began and ended our journey in Rome, Italy. Ryan and I got in a day early and stayed two extra days so we could see some of the sights that I remember learning about in my college history classes, including the Roman Colosseum.
We then sailed on Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas to the following locations in Greece:
- Santorini – A fascinating island famous for its beautiful white washed buildings and blue domed churches.
- Mykonos – A popular tourist hot spot island with the most beautiful waters you will find anywhere.
- Athens – Present day capital of Greece and home of the historic Acropolis.
- Olympia – Birthplace of the Greek Olympic Games over 2500 years ago.
There was so much history and beauty on this trip that was truly amazing!
Pillow Gifts and Daily Stampin’ Up! Prizes
One of my favorite parts of the trip was returning from dinner to find a pillow gift on the bed each night! This was so much fun.
Each day we also got to spin a big prize wheel and win new Stampin’ Up! products including Designer Series Paper, ribbon, and embellishments.
We also got an early copy of the Holiday Catalog and achievers were given more products at the one session we attended including Prize Patrol.
Swap Cards at the Stampin’ Up! Greek Isles Incentive Trip
In addition to all the gifts, time meeting with new and old friends, and seeing all the beauty of Greece and Rome, we also got to participate in a card swap. I didn’t do the 3D swap this year but made 26 cards of the same design for the regular card swap. Many friends from my July team meeting stayed late to help me finish up the cards which helped me out greatly – thanks again for helping me out!
I work very hard to design and put on classes each week and can’t thank my customers and team enough for their support!
