Paper Pumpkin

Stampin’ Up! Be Mine Valentine Paper Pumpkin and…some Blog Candy!

Mornin’, y’all!  By the time you get this, I’ll be at the airport.  Hopefully on the INSIDE of security and sitting working on the computer at the gate.  They’re telling folks to be 3 hours early – both in Atlanta AND Baltimore.  So… that’s fun!  😉  Hopefully they’re just being Nervous Nellie’s.  Debbie Downers.  Worried Wanda’s.  Fashed Frieda’s!

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

So today – I wanted to share a quick sneak peek at the January Paper Pumpkin kit!  It’s super cute and made 24 fun little treat holders in two designs.  It coordinates perfectly with the Animal Expedition Suite in the Annual Catalog, too!

If you haven’t put your kit together yet – here’s a peek!

Aww!  How sweet would those be filled with a little chocolate and sent to school with your kids on Valentines?!

Do they still do that at school?

Anyway – the kit comes with a fun exclusive stamp set and a Melon Mambo Ink Spot…

And all the fixin’s to make your twenty-four treat holders!

Here’s a quick video on how to put the kit together…

So – that’s what’s in your January box…

Finn Fan Fix

Finn has some of the cutest little – err…BIG!…hands I’ve seen on a dog.

You’ve seen them in pictures so you agree, I know.

But – they’re not just cute!  They’re functional!

Lid scooting all over the floor while you’re trying to lick the brown off of it??

No sweat!

Finn will be on vacay from the paparazzi while the Chief Paparazzian is away.  He’ll be back soon!

Well – WE sure will!  Why tempt fate by NOT eating them?!?

As we head into a new year and make our resolutions to be more efficient.  More organized.  More….together!…Stampin’ Up! and Paper Pumpkin helped us out with the December kit!  It’s called Day by Day and it created a cute 18- month calendar, complete with a box for gifting!  Super cute!

Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Trick or Treat for Halloween

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Hawwmp Day!!  I hope you had fun with the 30th Birthday sale yesterday.  It was a good ‘un, huh?

My Ordering Bonus is still going on – so there’s time to gather up some supplies to help with the upcoming Holiday season!  Read on down for the all the details and get in on it before it goes away on the 28th!

I thought it made sense to do another – maybe the last one? – Halloween card, since it’s right around the corner.  I used some fun Toil & Trouble DSP and images from the Cauldron Bubble and Trick or Tweet stamp sets (love this cute set!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Your Day!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.

I have a plane flight planned.  Which – is NOT fun.  Not in any way that you slice it.  Tomorrow’ll be a 12 hour day to get back to Atlanta.  Bleh bleh bleh.  But we’ve had a great visit and gotten done all the things we needed to do while I was here.  So – bonus!

But – expectation management:  I will NOT be doing a Facebook live tomorrow – so sorry!  I don’t even land in Atlanta until a little after 5, so…just can’t do it, y’all!  I’ll be back next weekend, I promise!!

Let’s not think about that unpleasantness right now, though, shall we?  Instead, let’s take a look at a card that comes from the second stamp set in the upcoming Snowflake Showcase (available 1 Nov – 30 Nov 18).  This is the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and…it gives a completely different look from the Snow Is Glistening set I used yesterday.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Just a Note to Wish You Well

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going swimmingly!

WE will not be swimming – cuz of how it’s colder than a well-digger’s lunch bucket here (that’s REALLY cold in case you’re unfamiliar with the analogy!).

So – I’ve come to the sad realization that I just don’t have enough internet speed/bandwidth here to do a FB Live – so…we’re going to have to skip that for today.  I’ll try to be back next week, though!

I made a simple little card using the Wishing You Well stamp set and some pumpkins from the Toil & Trouble DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure in Plaid!

Good Saturday, y’all!  We’re waiting for another round of snow for the weekend and then looking for beautiful Colorado days all next week.  Whoo-hoo!

My friend from…forever?…is coming up on Monday and spending the night with us.  I met Sally when we were Girl Scout riding camp counselors (she was Bak and I was Pegasus and we still call each other those camp names!) in the Colorado mountains when we were in college.  We very very quickly became the best the best of friends.  No matter how long we’re apart – when we get together, it’s like there’s been no time passing at all.  Y’all have friends like that I hope! 🙂

A few (maybe…20?) years ago, we’d have had a “sleepover” – complete with roasted marshmallows (even if we had to roast them over an electric stove.  Yes – that’s doable!), multiple movies (like…Man From Snowy River and Star Trek), and we’d have stayed up most of the night.

These days?  I’ll have a blog post to do for Tuesday and she’s got an online meeting she has to do for her work!  Oh – and we’ll crash by 9, I have no doubt.

We’re not quite as spry as we used to be, huh? 😉

But – we’ll have a good time, there’s definitely no doubt about that! 🙂

My card for today uses a new (to me) set from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Alpine Adventure!  I put it over some blue plaid that I created with the Buffalo Check Background.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Special and Snowflake Showcase Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Happy Hawwmp Day!

I made it safely to Colorado – even with the thick ice-fog (yes, that’s a thing and I feel certain that’s what it was.  Regular ole fog couldn’t possibly have been that thick.  Do not try to change my mind on this!) between the airport and my Mom’s house up in the mountains!  But – I did it and I’m here, so…yeah!! 🙂

Now – I was reminded today that I’d maybe sorta buried the lead about the Paper Pumpkin Flash Sale – and for that I apologize!  So…since getting your first month’s kit for just $5 is kind of a big deal-y-o….I’m bumping it up!

BUMP!

ENDS today!

Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Many Blessings for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month it’s all about Giving Thanks!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I saw a card a while back by Sue Mohr that created a wreath using punched and die cut leaves.  So, for today’s project, I decided to do one of my own.  I used the wreath from the Wishing You Well stamp set and added leaves created with the Leaf Punch and the Painted Harvest stamp set.  Take a look-see:
