Sharing the Love with Paper Pumpkin!

I LOVE January’s Adoring Arrows Paper Pumpkin Kit! This kit has enough supplies to make 24 treat bags! Each bag features mini gold foil hearts, vellum banners, a heart for stamping a personalized sentiment . . . and to top it off, an adorable little arrow! SWEET! I would have loved to have kept this for myself but I wanted to “share the love” with my granddaughter, Theä, and her little school mates. She is a whole three years old as of last month. She is our little princess and I absolutely adore her!

Theä goes to a Mother’s Day Out program at Crossroads Christian Church two days a week. Of course I told my daughter, Tenaya, that she could also use these for her Ladies Ministries group as well and do something different for the little ones. So many possibilities for this kit! I shipped this kit to Texas ( my home state) with Theä’s birthday presents and Tenaya assembled and took photos for me. Stampin’ Up! hasn’t released the images of the the individual items in the kit but I can share the video.

You know . . . where you enter your email address and then click Subscribe Here! so you can receive an email whenever I create a post to be shared with you. EVIDENTLY IT HAS NEVER WORKED! UGH!

FYI . . . If you have received an email confirmation to confirm subscribing to my blog, it’s because you had subscribed in the past.

ONE MORE THING . . . If you receive an email confirmation and then visit my blog, please leave me a comment on today’s post. That way I will know that I don’t have to update your information since you had subscribed in the past at some point. I do have a list of emails that had subscribed in the past.

Every Blessing Christmas Card

2016.8.29 Every Blessing Christmas Card

Yes, it’s that time when we card makers need to be thinking ahead about our Christmas cards. This Christmas card design is for my MIL. I’m thrilled with how it turned out and better yet, she LOVES it as well. Yeah! I used her stamp set, Every Blessing, which is retired from the last Annual Catalog 2015-2016. I used Gold Vellum card stock from Hobby Lobby since Stampin’ Up! doesn’t carry that item. I embossed it using the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love how it turned out! I also used Gold Glitz Dazzling Details in the middle of the star. Believe me, it looks stunning in person! (If you are interested in the stamp set, you could check on eBay for availability.)

Here is an image of the Every Blessing Stamp Set . . .

Happy Birthday Travis & PP308 Color Challenge

2016.8.18 Stars Happy Bday

Happy birthday to my nephew, Travis! He is just one of three sons to my twin brother, Tony. Yes, I have a twin brother! It’s back to school on Monday for Travis so I LOVE these bright, cheery “Back to School” colors in The Paper Players Color Challenge! Check out the other great cards by the Design Team and other participates!

2016.8.18_pp308

After I had made Travis’ card, I made another one but I didn’t use the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. It’s very CAS (Clean and Simple). It just shows you how you can step up a card by adding something as simple as some textured embossing!

March 2016 Pocketful of Cheer Paper Pumpkin Kit

2016.4.11_March_PaperPumpkinKit

I know . . . it’s April . . . and my April’s Paper Pumpkin Kit is on it’s way!! I’m so excited because it includes a BONUS stamp set ($17 value) as a “Thank You” for having mailed a MILLION kits thus far! March was Paper Pumpkin’s 3-year anniversary and the kit showed up in a Teal Blue (Bermuda Bay?) box to celebrate the 3-year milestone. Just in case you are new to my blog, the kits are normally packaged in orange boxes. Let get on with March’s Paper Pumpkin kit before my April kit gets here!

Before I continue talking about all the benefits of being a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber, let me show you what I worked on last night. This cute card will be tucked inside the envelope which has an attached gift card holder. I LOVE IT! Right now I just have my Stampin’ Up! Business Card in the gift card holder.

Isn’t this just darlin’?! I didn’t make it exactly the same way they showed in the instructions or video. That’s one of the things I like about the PP (Paper Pumpkin) Kits ,  you can put your own spin on how you want the final project to look. I still have to buy my gift card to place inside so you’ll have to see the finished product in the image at the top of this post. The envelope has stickers that secure the flaps down. LOVE IT! There are some PP subscribers that even use the supplies for scrapbook pages. And speaking of supplies . . .

2016.4.11_MarchPP_items

. . . you get everything you need to complete the projects. With this particular kit, you can order a Refill Kit (below) to make more of the same projects. Also there are some subscribers that used the products to make only cards. Paper Pumpkin is “creativity” in a box! You can do the suggested projects or go astray and do your own thing!
