Paper Pumpkin Demo Day!


I’m so excited to announce my first ever FREE Stampin’ Up! event! On Monday, June 30, 2014 I am inviting everyone I know over to enjoy some fun and festive (think 4th of July-Independence Day!) Paper Pumpkin crafting! I’m calling this event Paper Pumpkin Demo Day because I want everyone to see all of the amazing possibilities that can be created with the monthly subscription of a Paper Pumpkin kit.

My kit just arrived in the mail! I’m so excited to start sharing it with all of my friends, but I don’t want to give away all of my surprises so I’m only going to post pictures of the kit. You will have to come to my event or check in afterwards to see the amazingly creative projects we make!


Each month when your Paper Pumpkin box arrives in your mailbox you will open it to find a neatly wrapped craft project and a special little pumpkin note to thank you for your subscription.


Once you open that first layer of Soft Sky tissue paper you will see some of the supplies you need to participate in a 30 minute creative escape! In this kit I got a Night of Navy Stampin’ Spot, a 3 piece Photopolymer Stamp Set, and several sheets of Mini Glue Dots.


Finally, when you tear open that last layer of tissue paper you get to see the good stuff. All of the supplies you will need to create a great project. In this kit I got 24 (yes you read that right, twenty-four) pinwheels, brads, paper clips, straws, and cellophane bags! It’s amazing the amount of goodies that are jam packed into this box!

Want in on this awesome monthly box of goodies! There are several ways to do this! My personal favorite way is to SUBSCRIBE to Paper Pumpkin with a month-to-month subscription or a prepaid subscription! My second favorite way is to come to my event, Paper Pumpkin Demo Day!

I hope to see you soon!

Yay! It’s Finally Here!

Happy New Catalog Day! I know this post is a little late, but I was so excited by all of the awesome new product between the covers that I lost track of time making my wish list!

You can review an electronic copy of the catalog here, but what’s even better is you can get one in person on June 6th at my catalog open house. I’m so excited to show off some of the new and excited tools we have been given to continue to inspire, create, and share this love of paper crafting!

Playing With My New Toys

Each month I get together with my Upline and all of her other Downlines. It’s really fun, we share different projects we’ve been working on and bounce ideas off of each other. One of the best parts of our meeting is swapping cards. This is the card I created for the swap.

4.24 Swap

I followed last weeks Freshly Made Sketch and I used all new products from the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! Catalog and Idea Book. I can’t wait for everyone to get there hands on these great new products. Once the catalog launches I will add a supplies list below and repost so everyone can try there awesome new products.

Thanks for visiting today!

I’ve Been Busy

Every time I have a week day off of work I have a super long “To Do” list around the house and down in my craft room. I generally don’t get everything on my list done and it carries over. I always have big plans for planning out my blog posts, but lately I haven’t been able to post as I have planned.

Here are a few things I have been working on:


I had 2 Etsy orders that needed to be filled. Each one of the orders had 2 cards in the order and all of them had to be made from scratch. I love filling Etsy orders and I love sharing my crafts with everyone.

2 of the cards ordered where exactly like the cards listed on Etsy, but 2 of them were completely new and exciting. The first a Graduation card and the second a wedding card.


I like creating custom cards. I also enjoy when customers want to add their own personal touch of their loved ones name or a special date.


I have so much fun coloring these cards. Thanks for stopping by today and taking a look at what I’ve been up too! I’m hoping to have more blog posts to share with everyone soon!

I Heart U

Happy Monday!

Last week Wednesday I told you about the catalog premiere event I went to that was a reveal for the 2014-2015 annual catalog from Stampin’ Up! I have to be careful because there are many rules that I must follow as a demonstrator, but I want to share some of the new and exciting things that I learned at the premiere. If you Twitter, Pinterest, or even Facebook you may have noticed some pictures of new stamp sets or samples of projects made with new stamp sets. I think it’s safe now to share some new things with you all since the catalog has been released to ALL United States demonstrators and our pre-order period has begun.

One of the best parts of going to a Stampin’ Up! event is PRIZE PATROL! At every event you are given a wrist band that is a color or pattern and almost everyone in your group gets a different color or pattern. Throughout the event the presenters call out “prize patrol”  everyone gets really excited and you hope that you win! Our group had 1 winner at the premier, Kathy R.! We were all so excited for her and for the stamp set she won! But I’m even more excited because Kathy let me borrow her BRAND NEW stamp set!

The new set is called What’s Your Type?. I used Strawberry Slush and Pool Party ink from Stampin’ Up!, but I also used memento tuxedo black ink which is new to the catalog this year. It’s intended to be used with the new Blendabilities which I am hoping to show you very soon! You also might notice the heart punch, it will retire on June 1, 2014, but don’t fret there is a new heart punch in the new catalog that you will love equally or even more because it comes in a punch bundle with a star and a flower!

Below is a recreation of one of the samples that was shown during the release event using What’s Your Type?. This is a photopolymer stamp set which in my opinion is perfect for the alphabet stamp sets. It was fun working with something brand spankin’ new that not many people have been able to work with yet. I do have to work on lining up the letters and placing them on the cardstock, but I’m pleased with how this card tuned out!


Thanks so much for looking, I’m eager to share all the new and exciting merchandise offered by Stampin’ Up! If you have questions about the new product or catalog you can ask in the comments or via email!


So many great things are going on at Stampin’ Up! it’s been a challenge to decide where to start, but I thought it would be most fair to start with something you can get your hands on right away!
