Day 21 – Paper Pumpkin


Paper Pumpkin (PP) is the monthly subscription that comes to your door! It is a surprise each month.  June’s subscription includes both cards and bags.  PP makes a great gift because it includes everything from ink, stamps, paper and embellishments.  The only things you would need to add are a pair of scissors and adhesive.  PP is also great for the new stamper to get them started.  It is only $19.95 a month and that includes shipping.  After you are a subscriber, you can easily go back and order refills for past kits for only $8 (it will not include ink or the stamp set, because you will already have it from the initial kit).

There is also a Facebook group for alternative ideas on how to use your kit each month.

There are one, three, six and twelve month subscriptions available.

Winner from yesterday’s drawing:  Susan Corsello

Susan  will receive a  super cute FISH hand-stamped card.   When I send out cards, I don’t sign the inside; that allows you to use the card when needed.

Day 20 – Designer Series Papers

 

Here is a quick video showcasing some of the new DSP (Designer Series Papers shown on pages 187 – 189) in the new catalog.  I think my top two this year would be “Whole Lot of Lovely” DSP on the top of page 188 and the “Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP on the bottom  of
page 189.   Which ones are your favorites??? 

I LOVE DSP! You can stamp directly on it, dry emboss it with an embossing folder, die cut it, layer it…the options are endless!!!

Winner from yesterday’s drawing:  Dot Alcorn

Dot will receive a Daisy hand-stamped card.  The card below uses the “Delightful Daisy” DSP and the “Thank You” greeting is stamped directly on it.   When I send out cards, I don’t sign the inside; that allows you to use the card when needed.

Day 19 – Crafting Forever

Card by Jenny Moors (UK)

I received this lovely card from Jenny Moors, a SU demonstrator in the UK.  It is so cool that SU is global and that we get to connect with others across the world!  We have SU demonstrators in Japan, England, France, Australia, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada and more!!!  Even if we speak different languages, we all share a love of paper crafting!

Jenny used the “Creating Forever” stamp set on pg. 181 of the catalog.  As demonstrators, we received this stamp set free at our local OnStage event in Minneapolis last April.  Jenny also used my favorite new in-color, Lemon-Lime Twist!  So bright and refreshing!!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a wonderful Father’s Day celebrating the men in our lives, both past and present!  They all help to mold the people we are today!

Winner from yesterday’s drawing:  Carol Busby

Carol will receive a daisy “Thank  You” card.    When I send out cards, I don’t sign the inside; that allows you to use the card when needed.

Day 18 – Happy Father’s Day

A Little Wild samples by Stampin’ Up!

I thought this set was super cute!  It is called “A Little Wild” and you can find it on pg. 108 of the catalog.  It can be used as a tag or just a front image on a card.  Think of all of the fun sayings you could use.  For example, at OnStage they shared stamping the image on the front of the card and stamping the back of animal inside the card and say, “I Got Your Back!”  Have fun with it!

Winner from yesterday’s drawing:  Cathy Ward

Cathy will receive the “Post Script” background stamp from page 165 in the catalog.   Plus, she will receive a hand-stamped card.  When I send out cards, I don’t sign the inside; that allows you to use the card when needed.

Shout out to all of the amazing Father’s out there!  Including my own father in Missouri and my better half, Paul. 🙂  This is an older picture of Paul with the girls, but it is one of my favorites.  We took Paul out for dinner at Thunder Bay Grill that day.  Great memories!
Here is a picture of my parents on our wedding day over 28 years ago.
My dad is very dapper looking if I must say so myself!  🙂  He is also very tall (6’5″).

Thank you dads everywhere for the wonderful role you play!  It is huge and greatly appreciated!  Have a great day everyone!  Make great memories!!!
