A Year in Review …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Like me … I’m sure you like to sit down every now and then and make up a bunch of cards for upcoming birthdays, holidays and such, but we all know life gets in the way sometimes and we don’t get the chance to get our stamping done …

Well, I have a solution!! Try our Paper Pumpkin kits – they come once a month and you can get fun cards and projects in minutes … no coming up with the design, no measuring … no spending 1/2 your time cutting everything out … just grab the kit and begin!

2017 was a great year for Paper Pumpkin! So join me and talk a ride down memory lane … Your carriage awaits! Watch this to take a look back at all the great kits we released in 2017!

Which was your favorite?  I have to say … Stampin’ Up! kicked off the year right with the January 2017 Paper Pumpkin: Adorning Arrows – 16 cute little Valentine boxes, but I only have 12 grandchildren to I made this cute card ….

Oh man … I like so many of them and who can resist those little “Bunny Buddies” in March! I added note cards and tucked them in the bag, and a full size card on this one ….

 And what about our June 2017 “One in a Melon” … that was so fun to make into cards, and the kids just loved the bags!!

I even used the stamps that were included in the kit to stamp my “Stampin’ Rewards” notifications!!

Can’t keep going without another favorite ….July 2017 and the “Positively Picturesque” …

I will say however, that Autumn is my favorite time of year so I could not resist the beautiful kit they put together for September: “Layered Leaves” …

and my favorite card of them all …

The rest of the year was just as fun and beautiful with the shaker cards in October and Stockings in November … Loved ’em!! We’ve come a long way baby and the Paper Pumpkins are bigger and better than ever before.

Sale-A-Bration Product of the Week: Beautiful Peacock

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am sorry I’ve been away a few days, as many of you know, my Mom has been in Hospice for the past month and on Monday our Lord carried her back home. She has been freed from her pain and resides in the house of the Lord with her parents, brothers and loving daughter. So if I miss a day or two, please excuse me … however she was one of my biggest fans and loved to see the cards that we made ❤

Today I will be sharing the Beautiful Peacock stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

From stunning and simple to full and fancy, the Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set does it all! With different options for the tail, you can create impressive layers that go seamlessly with the body stamp.

Thank you for stopping by today, and a big WELCOME to all my new readers who are now following my blog.

Have a wonderful day ~

Simply Sunday: Party Panda’s / Guest Stamper: Brenda

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share another cute card made with our little Party Pandas! This card was created by Brenda Morateck, one of my Star’s (someone who signed up as a demonstrator with me). This card is from our Star’s Christmas Party Card Swap.

The card swap challenge was “Something New” … either the Occasions Catalog or the Sale-A-Bration catalog and Brenda chose the Party Pandas

This card was created with the Petal Passion Designer Paper and the fun and bright Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock!

Our cute little Panda is highlighted with the help of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. You can’t go wrong with these little guys and you can get them for FREE with a $50 purchase during our Sale-a-bration promotion!

Thanks Brenda for the cute card, and I thank YOU for stopping by today.

Hope your Sunday is Simply amazing~

Card Share & Personal Invite!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yes, I took the day off yesterday, that is one benefit of having your own business ❤ So I’m back today with a super cute -n- quick card to you!

This month my Stampin’ Clubs are working with the Petal Passion Product Suite and the coordination Designer Paper, so I used another pattern from it and sponged “turquoise”  on it giving it the “Ombre” look … I did mine from dark to light!

I couldn’t resist using those darling Pandas from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set “Party Pandas” ….

Aren’t they just the cutest little guys you’ve ever seen!? Love them … and speaking of love, the greeting is included with the stamp set and they can be yours for FREE!! With a $50 purchase (before s&h) you can choose this or other exclusive stamps & product from our Sale-A-Bration catalog.

I punched out the greeting with the new Scallop punches found on page 17 of the Occasions Catalog. The awesome glimmer paper on the greeting and balloon are from the Myths & Magic product suite … that is also where you will find the coordinating Washi Tape I used on the outside and inside of my card.

AND  … if you like to party like a Panda, I’ve got a fun video to share with you. Sit back and watch how our Stampin’ Family parties … this is one of our On Stage events. We see new product introductions, how to use it, celebrate each others accomplishments, stamping demonstrations and the beloved PRIZE PATROL!!! Enjoy …

Happy Wedding Day Mini Treat Bag

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I know you just received your Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs however we still have some great stamp sets and accessories in our Annual catalog, so today I want to share with you a cute project that is on my website’s Idea Page!!

Let me introduce you to the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set …

Bundle and save! Buy these two coordinating products and save 10%.  When Stampin’ Up! names a stamp set “Beautiful Bouquet,” you’d better believe they mean it! With sentiments for any occasion and countless ways to combine the floral images, this set will help you create beautiful bouquets that live on forever.

Stampin’ Up! teamed up this fabulous bundle with a familiar product – the Mini Treat bag to create this cute little project …

Recognize the Designer Paper? It’s one of the patterns from the Delightful Daisy package. I know many of you already have this designer paper! And who doesn’t love these cute little treat bags … so much FUN!!  What a great combination 🙂

I love going through the new catalogs, so many great items and ideas but lets not forget how awesome our annual catalog is too.  I will try to incorporate some of the past goodies with the awesome new stuff … can’t go wrong creating with that plan!
