April Paper Pumpkin Video is here!!!


Click on the video above to watch Sara demonstrate her kit she designed.  

Sara's kit is "bold, vibrant and artistic with a little bit of sass".  I am so in love with it!  Wait until you see how Sara shows us stepby step on how to do the color resist technique with watercolor pencils.  There is something else new this month, FULL COLOR INSTRUCTIONS!!! Don't forget there is a FREE gift inside too.   You are going to love it!  I know I do.  

I will be having a class on April 26th at 6:30pm to put our kits together and make some alternative cards.  This class is FREE if you order your Paper Pumpkin through me.  Anyone is welcome to join us for this fun night of crafting.  There will be a fee of $12.  

Not a subscriber to Paper Pumpkin, but would like to.  Click on one of the pictures below for a month, 3 month, 6 month and 12 month subscription.  I know with summer coming up you are going to be busy and your just not sure if you will have to put your kit together. Not a problem, you have the option to skip a month or two when needed.  I have used this option and it is wonderful. 

Need a gift for someone and not sure what to give them.  This is a perfect gift!  A party in a box, once a month, delivered to their house. Who wouldn't love that?! 

Over the weekend, I have been busy working on changing out retired products with new products.  I have also changed the order in which I have my paper and inks.  Anyone who knows me knows I do everything alphabetical.  Well, I am stepping out of my comfort zone big time.  

In the new catalog, Stampin' Up! has a list of all the colors grouped together by color.  This made the change so easy.  Here are a couple of pictures of my paper storage and inks.  




I am still trying to get use to them being in this order, but I am really starting to like it.  I ordered some sign clips to put on my racks so I can label each color.  As you can tell, I like to label things.  My label maker and I are very close.  My family told me that if I started labeling the kitchen cabinets I was in trouble.  Who me, I would never do that. LOL

Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a terrific Tuesday!

January 2016 Paper Pumpkin



Do you like getting surprises? Every month? Do you like to create different projects?  Then,Paper Pumpkin is for you!!!! It is a great program available through Stampin' Up! in which you get a red box in the mail monthly with different projects to create.  They have been cards, banners, treat bags, frames, pinwheels and many more.  I have enjoyed getting the little red boxes in the mail each month, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this one.  The kit this month is to make a banner and treat pockets for Valentine's Day.  I am really not that big on banners and wanted something different than treat bags.  So, what could I do with this kit?  Make cards, of course! 

I sat down the other night and decided to let the creative juices flow and see what happens.  I have to say I really like how they came out.  You could change the sentiment to anything, but I wanted to use the stamps that came with the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I only added cardstock (pink pirouette, watermelon wonder and smokey slate) and used different punches to create them.  Check them out and let me know what you think.

 The above picture is one of the treat bags that was made as the kit was designed to be made.


With this card I used the sweetheart punch and the heart punch from the itty bitty accents punch pack. 



I think this framelit, Bloomin' Love, might be one of my favorites.  I love how delicate it looks on this card.  I also added rhinestones for a little bit of bling.


I used the sweetheart punch also on this card, but added the glimmer paper for a little big of bling.  Who doesn't like bling?


I like to add tags to cards and thought this was a great way to use the sequin trim and clothespin that came in the kit.  I used the scallop tag top punch to make the top of the tag. 

In the Occasions Catalog there is a punch and stamp set called Grateful Bunch.  I was looking around for something else to put on my card and the punch was sitting on my desk (it had just come in the mail that day).  The best thing about this punch, well there is two things, first you can punch 3 flowers at the same time.  Second, it is available in a bundle (you get the stamp set and punch at a 15% discount) and who doesn't love a sale!!



I used the banners in this kit and added a glimmer heart with the itty bitty punch pack. 



Happy Stamping!
