#114 – Fall is in the Air (NOT:) – September 22, 2017

I was taking pictures of my latest NEW Holiday catalog swaps, when Orion jumped into my light box.


The big guy showed no signs of moving, so I put him to work.
He makes a great prop!

Make sure you are a member of my Facebook Customer group
Stampahowlic Stampers to see the latest in card samples.  I posted over 100 earlier in the week and I will be adding another 100 plus this weekend.

Can you believe it is Fall?  Temperatures are supposed to be over 90 degrees here in northern Illinois today!  I personally love it, because I enjoy the warmer weather.  Fall is beautiful too…the colors, comfy sweaters, apple orchards…I would enjoy fall more if it wasn’t followed by winter. 🙂  And then of course, there are beautiful fall cards.


What is your favorite season???

#113 – Paper Pumpkin – September 21, 2017

I just got my September Paper Pumpkin kit last week!!!
You get to make 12 cards and 12 pillow boxes.  Great for the upcoming holidays!
You could give your fall hostesses a pillowbox of treats or a bottle of wine with a lovely card.
They are truly elegant and so much fun to create!

Paper Pumpkin is $19.95 a month and that includes shipping.  You would just need to add your sales tax.  As a subscriber, you are able to go in and order extra consumables for only $8 for past kits.  That way, you can get extras of your favorites!  You can also manage your subscription and put it on hold for a period of time or cancel your subscription.  Keep Paper Pumpkin in mind for the upcoming holidays and gift-giving!

I love that I have a monthly craft kit that comes in the mail each month.  All supplies included, except for scissors.  I don’t have to think or figure out what to do.  Just relax and create.  Then the really fun part is sharing what you make with others!!!

#111 – Painted Harvest Continued – September 19, 2017

While we are having a resurgence of warmer weather, it is hard to think about Christmas, but it will be here before you know it!  Time to think about gift giving, packaging, tags, cards for both the holiday and thank yous and maybe even scrapbooking.

Meanwhile, back to our 80 degree temps and “even more Painted Harvest samples!”
I will share one more set tomorrow and then we will move on to another set.

I love how she created a watercolor look and the way she folded the ribbon!  Super elegant!
