Here we are, at Friday - and up to THIS MONTH'S Paper Pumpkin! I like this one a lot. I've said that about every one, haven't I. :D
This month's came with that GORGEOUS card box - it's so sturdy, with an acrylic lid! - and the beautiful grosgrain ribbon tied around it. The selection of cards included "CONGRATS"" but I have a lot of those in my stash, and I don't need them as often as thank-yous and sympathy, unfortunately, so that's what I made all my cards. There are two designs of four types, so 8 cards - AND envelopes! - altogether. LOTS of die cuts, stamps, stickers, and you get to choose how you want to use them. :) I had a great time getting to partially design this Paper Pumpkin. :D
Thank you for joining me for all the Paper Pumpkin goings-on this week! I hope you enjoyed seeing finished projects. I think this subscription box is SO worth the fee!!!
ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!!! Take time to check out Paper Pumpkin! :D
It's WEDNESDAY!!! :D I'm so glad you came back again to see this Paper Pumpkin from July!!!
Every single one of these cards came with wood details to put on the cards. Washi tape - which I used in a way new to me, so that was cool. :D
This kit came with the Stampin' Spot, the stamps, the Washi Tape, the diecuts, and everything ready to stamp on or stick on or whatever it needed for two of each design! It took me a while, because I'm used to designing my own projects - but the directions that come with the cards make it super-simple, too. :)
OK, by the time you read this, I'll have just gotten home. :) So, as it is, I'm gonna jet and finish getting ready to leave. :D
Have a wonderful day! Check out Paper Pumpkin
Welcome to MONDAY!!!!
Since we're leaving in the middle of last week (Sometimes, doing this scheduled blogging stuff is like a time-travel puzzle!!!!), I wanted to feature something that would be easy to show you - and BOY, is Paper Pumpkin gonna fit that bill - for you, too!!!
This is the kit, all put together MY WY, from June. DO YOU SEE HOW ADORABLE THIS IS?!?!??! I mean, look at that watermelon tissue paper inside the bag!!! Each bag comes with its own piece of that adorable tissue paper. I can eat my weight in watermelon, which is saying something! :D So give me something watermelon-themed as a CRAFT, and I am a VERY happy crafter. :D
Y'all, the kit comes with EVERYTHING you need to do the entire box - except continuing clear blocks. Your FIRST box will come with it, and from then on, that's the only thing you need to supply. I have six gift bags ready at a moment's notice, PLUS gift cards! Seriously. It doesn't get easier than Paper Pumpkin.
Don't like the way they did a project (Which I have felt a few times!)? Use the product to do your own thing! Not only does Stampin' Up!® put out a video to show how to put these together, but there are several demos who put out alternative ideas for each month's Paper Pumpkin.
If you're interested about learning more, or perhaps ordering - and there are discounts for paying for numbers of months in advance - just click on this sentence
, and scroll to the bottom to Paper Pumpkin! (If you do order, please choose me as your demonstrator! :D)
OK, now back to packing and finishing my to-do lists. :D Have a wonderful day, and DO think about this Paper Pumpkin thing. It's a blast!
We made it!!! :D It's FRIDAY!
Today's card is for another challenge - by the Paper Craft Crew
. It was "Butterflies andDragonflies", using either one. I decided to go REALLY bold! :)
I used three different stamps from the Label Me Pretty stamp set, as well as the punch. Overachiever! :D Seriously, though, it's REALLY easy. The most difficult part? Poking all the pieces of the butterfly die out!
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Black Momento
Card Stock: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Basic Black, Vellum Cardstock
Additional: Sponge Dauber, Black EP, Heat Tool, Butterflies Thinlits, Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals, Multi Purpose Glue
See?!??! It really doesn't get much simpler. My mom loved both cards this week - she adores anything YELLOW. :D
So, I'm outta here!!! I have a wedding to attend! Have a wonderful, fun weekend, and be sure to take a little time to stamp something! :)
Welcome to Wednesday! :D
Isn't this ADORABLE?!?!?!? Sorry that I used retired Cherry Cobbler baker's twine on the frint of the label, but it DOES come in other colors... :D (See page 199 in the IBC.) But this is FAST packaging at its prettiest!
Of course, you don't HAVE to use this label from the stamp set - if you chose another, you could use this box for gifting LOTS of other small gifts! Quick and EASY!!!!
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Card stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler (1/2" strip all around the box)
Additioinal: Baker's Twine, Garden Green Stampin' Write Marker (difficult to see, but it's there!), Dimensionals, Multi Purpose Glue, Clear Tiny Treat Boxes
I just put some homemade fudge Mom had in the freezer into it, and hey, presto! a great little gift! :)
OK, I'm outta here - time to finish packing! :D Have a great day - and be SURE to make the time to stamp SOMEthing! :D
