Well – Happy 2018, y’all!! I hope you got to party or sleep – whichever is your preference! – last night and that 2018 came in like a lamb for you!
I did my usual. Went to bed. Woke up to let the Man out around 1. Went back to bed. You know. Exciting New Year’s Eve stuff. 🙂
I thought it would be fun to usher in the new year with some Blog Candy! What do you think?
Now. Just to manage expectations. I spent a bit of time across the weekend going thru my…mess. The mess I call my stamping area. And re-arranging! Oh – and buying a new storage cabinet and ribbon shelf from StampNStorage (now just have to figure out where to put them when they arrive!). I might have annexed a little more living room…but it looks a lot better!
I moved all the stamps to the table to the left of the screen.
I digress. What I was meaning to say is that there’s no real rhyme or reason to my blog candy today.
Do you mind that there’s no theme?? Hope not.
So – I’m celebrating three things today, so there’s three Blog Candy Packages up for grabs!
First – I’m celebrating the arrival of 2018 with all my friends and family safe and healthy and happy! And…here’s Package #1: A Cottage Greetings Project Kit and Cottage Greetings stamp set, a bunch of Stampin’ Spots in all sorts of colors, and a slew of cards and card fronts for you to use/embellish/finish!
The second thing I’m celebrating is that I’m within a hair’s breadth of reaching one of the intermediate goals in my weigh-loss journey. I was hoping I’d hit that goal for 2018 – but…I’m close enough to celebrate! So…package #2 is…Finely Woven Ribbon in the 2017-2019 In Colors, the current SAB Happy Wishes stamp set, some 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows Embellishments, and a pack of 2016-2018 Glitter Acrylic Shapes.
Finally…I’m celebrating the growth of my business this year! And – I mean growth in sales…growth in my team…and growth in the number of wonderful people I’ve “met” in the course of the year. All thanks to this wonderful hobby of ours! Thank you ALL! So, Package #3 is…a horrible picture (sorry!)…but it’s a Pretty Pocket Card Kit, the SAB stamp sets Amazing You and Lots of Lavender, a 2016-2018 In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes, and a pack of Touches of Nature Elements.
Okay – now.

Take the Red Box Challenge!!
Between Now and 31 Jan 18 at 11:59 PM (MT).
Happy New Year, everyone! The Paper Pumpkin team is especially excited for 2018, and we have two great reasons: (1) This year’s kits are amazing and (2) We’ve decided to kick off 2018 with a superfun giveaway!
We’re calling it the Red Box Challenge, and it’s easy to get in on the fun!
Simply put together a WOW project using an unused, past kit—or buy a past kit that you’ve had your eye on. Then share an image of your project on Facebook or Instagram with #redboxchallenge and you will be entered into a random drawing to win a Paper Pumpkin kit.
Now, we think all of our kits are wonderful and amazing–but our random drawing winners will receive the upcoming Paper Pumpkin fifth anniversary March kit. Think: Gorgeous and collectible. Everyone is going to want one. AND the winners will get it in their mailbox before anyone else.
Sound fun? Check out the terms and conditions here, then start crafting your Red Box Challenge project today!
Note: Some project ideas will be selected from the entries and featured in Paper Pumpkin’s monthly newsletter and on our Facebook and Pinterest pages. Past alternative Paper Pumpkin projects you’ve created and posted on social media are not eligible for this contest.
If you’re not a current customer of mine but would like to be, you can request your copies of the catalogs on my Contact page right here.
If you need any stamping supplies, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator. Just click on the Order Stampin’ Up! Online Now button on the right side of the screen to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. Happy Stamping!
