I’m going to share one more video with you today … it’s a fav because we all need a little cheering up once in a while.

It’s the NOTES OF CHEER CARD KIT ….

This kit is perfect for NEW Crafters as it does not require any stamping at all. However, if you love this kit, and like to stamp … watch the video and then I’ll share how you can “tweek” your greetings.

I love the playful look of these cards and all that beautiful color! If you have your own sentiments … just flip over the pre-printed greeting and stamp your own! Birthday, Get Well, or Happy Retirement! Here is the link to get this wonderful kit: CLICK HERE!

Thanks times two …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Have you seen the August Paper Pumpkin kit yet?   Watch to see how fun and simple this kit is to put together.

I really like the die cuts and how the look over the striped patterned cardstock card bases.  I’m not comfortable in placing sequins (don’t know why I think it should be any different than pearls or rhinestones) but working with the Paper Pumpkin kit really gave me a bit more confidence, which is good because I ordered a couple packs!!

I also want to share my versions … the first not too different from the instructions

 000_1371

I did change up the note card a bit.  Yep … worked in that sequins!  It turned out so cute, I tucked it into an order.

From Christmas to Valentine’s Day …

Hi Stampin’ Friends,

Woo Hoo … this will be a quick post today, I have the pleasure of shoveling out about 5 – 6 inches of snow … Yippee!

Enough about that white stuff, I wanted to share with you a Paper Pumpkin project that I did just the other day.  With this fabulous opportunity to get FREE Markers when you sign up, I just wanted you to get a good feel of these fun stampin’ projects.

This was the November project that was delivered to my door (well … mailbox)

000_0620

Ohhhh so pretty.  I love it because I don’t have a sewing machine, so the only way anyone is going to see something sewn from me is on a card from Paper Pumpkin – LOL!

I’m not sure if I mentioned this yesterday … but Stampin’ Up! also puts out a video that coordinates with your Paper Pumpkin!  They’re short, cute, and give you a quick view on how to make the project.  Remember, they give you full color directions in your kit too.

OK … so I was playing around with my November Paper Pumpkin and came up with this …

000_0622

What do you think?  All I did was take one of those left over hearts from another project and added it to the card!  And a greeting.

I really would like to hear what you think of the Paper Pumpkin projects that I have shown you so far.  If you would like to sign up … here is the link again.

Have yourself an awesome day!
