Stampin’ Up! Joy To The World October Paper Pumpkin Kit

Happy happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!  My days are flying by – we’ve got our Stampin’ Up! OnStage At Home event the first weekend in November (and TWELVE of my CNCK team are attending – virtually! – with me!) and then the weekend after that is our friend’s wedding!  We’ve got a cool house rented on Pawley’s Island – right on the beach!  🙂  Busy days ahead and then we’re gonna blink and…CHRISTMAS!!

Speaking of Christmas, my October Joy To The World Paper Pumpkin kit arrived last weekend and I put the eight gorgeous Christmas cards together right quick last night!  This kit is really beautiful – and even left me some extra pieces to make a bonus goodie!  Check out these beauties:

Stamps-N-Lingers Packaging Stock Up Special Sale Starts Now!

Good morning, y’all!  About ready for Christmas?

I totally am.  I have all my shopping done – my Christmas cards are all made, addressed and ready to mail.  I have wrapped all the gifts I’m giving in a manner that would make Martha Stewart pea-green with envy and awestruck with admiration.  I’ve planned my menu for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve AND New Year’s Day.  AND I’m developing a new recipe for a romantic dessert for Valentine’s Day.

Whew!  If absolutely even ONE part of that had been anything more than total and complete fiction from the mind of a crazy woman then….I WOULD. BE. AMAZING!

No – I’m for sure not that far ahead and I’m sort of assuming that you aren’t either!  But – that ticking clock you hear in your head says it’s time to be thinking about the gifting – packaging – mailing you need to do, am I right?

So…I’m here today to help you with PART of the Holiday-Season-Prep-Frenzy with….my annual….

Stampin’ Up! Festive Corners in the Pines for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

As I started to work on this sketch – my brain saw some some plaid.  Duh, Mare…  and…the Festive Corners stamp set.  As I worked thru building the card – my plan to put one of the vertical sentiments from Festive Corners in the middle of the oval sort of fell thru.  But – it was an easy fix – I added pines from the In The Pines stamp set (even better!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Hello Pumpkin Ideas And Other Paper Pumpkin News You Can Use!

Morning, y’all!  Happy Tuesday.  I’m not going to tell you about my Monday – the morning in particular – cuz…you’ll decide I’m cray cray and unfollow me!  Let’s just say that Monday started at 5:30 when I set off the alarm in the house even as I stared at the big sign that’s been on the door for three weeks that says “STOP – disarm alarm before opening door” and…it was for sure Monday all the rest of the day!  So…I am very happy that this is NOT Monday!

I thought I’d give you a peek at the latest Paper Pumpkin kit – since the deadline for signing up for the October Joy To The World kit is fast approaching!

The September kit – called Hello Pumpkin – was a Treat kit.  Everything you need to create 20 treat crackers – decorated for Fall, Thanksgiving or Halloween!

Like every Paper Pumpkin kit, it has an exclusive stamp set – the 11-stamp Hello Pumpkin set – and an ink Spot – this one is in Cajun Craze!

And – it also provided all the pieces and parts you’ll need for your treat crackers – including all sorts of cool die-cut flowers, vines, witch hats, pumpkins, doilies and sentiment labels!

Now – we live down a very long – and dark! – driveway.  And we have a gate at the end.  So….in the umpty-billion years we’ve lived here we’ve not had one single solitary trick-or-treater.  Not-a-one.  And parties aren’t really a thing for us.  If that sounds sort of like you – and treat crackers aren’t really up your alley – let me show you some alternate ideas!

These used one of the scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut the centers out of the treat boxes to then adhere onto Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes card bases.

The sentiments are stamped onto the die cut banners and adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and the adhesives included in the kit!

A little die cut pumpkin from the kit finished the inside of each card, too.

It made 12 note cards – with plenty of leftovers to make even more!

Here are a couple more alternate project ideas from the clever minds of Stampin’ Up!

Now – just in case you do need Treat Crackers – this is a fun way to make a bunch!  Here’s the quick video showing you how to put them together as planned! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Well Written Welcome New Pet Card

Well – it’s Monday again – hope y’all are ready for the week!  Don’t know about you but we here in GA had a simply perfect Fall-preview day yesterday!  Bright sun – blue skies – low humidity – mid 70’s!  My windows and doors were open all day and I enjoyed a few hours on the mower in the pasture!  It was wonderful – and I hope we get a few weeks of it!

One of my friends from my previous work-life is…getting a new addition to his family!  They lost their senior GSD a few months back and…finally were ready for a new face in the house.  So…I made them a card to welcome…Gus!  They’re pretty big gardeners, so I used the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle, the Dog Builder Punch (duh!) and a few sentiments from the Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written Dies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Always Grateful

Good morning and happy Monday!  Did you do something fun this weekend?

On Sunday – our team got together via Zoom for our Quarterly Team Meeting!  And – in addition to getting Stampin’ Up! updates AND doing an awesome Prize Patrol…a few of us demo’d some cards for the team to make.  In TTBC (The Time Before COVID) – we’d have met in person and crafted together to make the four cards.  Now-a-days?  Zoom zoom!

We all used the same bundle – the Celebration Tidings bundle – but…boy, were our projects different!  Although… we DID all use Plaid Tidings DSP!  Appears we all LOVE Plaid Tidings DSP and want it to stick around forever!!

The card that I did has an autumn theme – all ready for cool Fall days and the arrival of pumpkins and leaves galore.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! World’s Greatest – August 2020 Paper Pumpkin!

Good Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’re ready for a great weekend – I’ll be hanging “virtually” with a BUNCH of Stampin’ Up! Leaders today – and that’s what I got to do yesterday, too!  Awesome info being passed to us – using a platform that is ALMOST as good as being there.

I laid in some extra candy just to make the experience more “real”! 😉

The other day, I got my August Paper Pumpkin in the mail!  It’s called World’s Greatest – and it’s full of….great! 😎…goodies to make 9 cards and coordinating envelopes!

Can you tell that one of the designs is a shaker card?  Well…trust me on this.  It totally is!

And they ALL have foil accents – which is too fun!

Lots of great sentiments for you, too – for the kit projects AND for future cards!

The stamp set – called World’s Greatest is – like ALL Paper Pumpkin stamp sets – exclusive to the kit.

The kit – again like ALL Paper Pumpkin kits! – comes with everything you need to make the projects – as well as the instructions! 🙂

Once everything is together – this is what you’ll have!  And – you KNOW how I feel about envelopes!  #nonekkidenvelopes  🙂

And – you don’t have to stop there – you could make a few “as directed” cards and then go off on your own.  Here’s some ideas for you!  How cute is that pencil?!?

You can check out the “official” Stampin’ Up! video for this month’s kit right here!

So – there’s what August looked like! September’s kit rolls in….FALL!

As the autumn season approaches, prepare to celebrate with the September Paper Pumpkin Kit! There’s so much to love about fall—some love the haunts of Halloween, many love the time to give thanks, and others love the changing colors and cooler temperatures. Whatever you love most about fall, September’s kit has everything you need to celebrate the season your way!

September’s kit is a must-have for those who love to celebrate all things spooky.  But, for those who DON’T enjoy the Halloween haunts, the multi-occasion stamp set – combined with a variety of die-cut and reversible paper pieces – offers many ways to customize your fall crafts!

The Hello Pumpkin Paper Pumpkin Kit includes enough supplies to create projects celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the autumn season. Make them all the same, or mix ‘n’ match!

Here’s the deets….

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create 20 cracker box treat packages.
  • Each cracker box treat package can be customized to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, the autumn season, or all three!
  • Coordinating Colors: Bumblebee, Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Cinnamon Cider, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, white
  • And – to get THIS kit, you MUST be signed up by 10 Sep.  Sign up on 11 Sep….and you’ll get the OCTOBER kit.  Which is probably awesome – but…it’s not THIS one!

 

So – are you a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber?  If you’re not – but…you’d like to give these fun, all-inclusive kits, a try – you can sign up for a subscription where you are billed monthly for your kit OR you can purchase a prepaid subscription in my online store.  To see more information and to sign up for the monthly subscription, click here.

My Fundraiser to Help Iowa – ends in TWO Days!!

On 10 August, the state of Iowa was hit with a derecho storm.  If you have seen any videos of it – it truly looked like a hurricane had hit Iowa.  Uhm – because it totally had – winds in the 100+mph range (that’s Cat 2 territory, folks!)  With no warning to speak of.  To say it was devastating is a bit of an understatement! 🙁

As a result of the storm, at least 43% of the corn and soybeans grown in the state were lost.  Which will be seen in the supermarkets where you and I get our food!  But beyond all that – many in that state are hurting, have lost their homes, schools and businesses and some are still without power (12+ days after the storm and with daytime temps in the 90’s ). Many farm families lost everything and are left with a huge mess to clean up prior to planting next spring.  With so much destruction, they can really use our help!

There’s an organization in Cedar Rapids, IA, called the Iowa Giving Crew, a Cedar Rapids based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that’s helping to get power restored to those still waiting, is feeding those in need, provides 3 meals a day and is helping with the cleanup.  They’ve got a Facebook page that you can see here with photos and details about the help they’re providing.

In an effort to help, I’ve set a goal of donating $500 to the Iowa Giving Crew.

How can you help me help them??

Place a Stampin’ Up! Order Or Donate Directly!

There are two ways you can help me to reach my goal:

Finn Fan Fix 

Most evenings – Finn does one of two things.

I ask – are you ready for bed or do you want to go outside?

He responds by either heading down the hall to the bedroom or to the back door to go out.

Okay – a lot of his answer depends on where he’s standing and where he’s “pointed” when I ask it! I think he goes out sometimes with no real need! 😉

On the nights he chooses to go outside – I put his blinky light collar on and tell him to hurry and come right back.

When he comes in he makes a beeline for bed.

Usually – I can snag him in time to take the blinky light collar.

Sometimes…I miss…

You gotta be quick – once he heads to bed….he’s like a HF on a laser! 😉
