Paper Pumpkin More Than A Card

Even though I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I have a room full of stamps, inks, papers, embellishments and more I LOVE getting the Paper Pumpkin kits every month.  It is so much fun to be surprised by what is is the box and being challenged to do something different that I usually do.  I also like the challenge of coming up with alternatives for my subscribers and this is one of those projects.
Aren't these just too cute?  They are two little boxes I made using the base cards that came in the kit.  I do want to give credit to Sunn Stamping which is where I got the instructions for making the box and then I added my own little flair to them.  Suzanne is a Canadian Stampin' Up! demonstrator and she does some really awesome Paper Pumpkin alternatives and is a great inspiration and resource.  Check out her blog and her YouTube channel.

I did do a video for my YouTube channel as well and I hope you'll check it out.  Just click on the picture above to go there.

Below are a list of supplies I used to make these cute boxes and a TAMS number where you can obtain printable instructions as well.  I appreciate your stopping by and hope you will consider shopping with me at my online store.  Just click on any of the product pictures below to go to my store.

Multiple Products Come Together

Hello Everyone!  So glad to be back.  I hope you are enjoying my blog and that you will share it with others so I can build a bit of viewers.  I love to share what I do and hopefully inspire others to continue with their craft and I can only do that as people know about me.

Here is my Monday project.  Each Monday I try to post an original card made using primarily Stampin' Up! products.  Sometimes there will be an instructional video attached that you can view on YouTube but not always.  I also provide printable written instructions and supplies list through my These are My Stamps site and you'll see how you can connect to that either in the side bar or at the end of this post just above the supplies list.

Now, enough of business here is the card I made for this week.
























Isn't it lovely?  I used the Forever Fern Bundle and some other new catalog items to make this card.  Check out the list below to see what I used.  If you go to the TAMS site the project number is listed so you can find that specific project.

What is a Diagonal Accordian Fold?

Hello Stampers,
  Here I am with my second Blast From The Past!  

I am excited to bring you a fun card that I call Diagonal Accordion Card.
The stamp set used here is the Special Someone stamp set that came out in a previous catalog but has actually carried over to the current 2020-2021 catalog.  Still, it may have been forgotten on your shelf so it's time to pull it down and make this totally cute card.  

I have posted a YouTube video that will give you information on how I made this card and you can view it by clicking on the card pictures above.

You can also access a printable instruction sheet and list of supplies at my These Are My Stamps site.

I also have a printable instruction sheet and supplies list on my These Are My Stamps site as well.  Just click on the TAMS logo to the right of my post and it will take you to my site and there you can type in the project number below to go directly to this card.

Guess What's Coming Next!!

Have I got news for you!  I know it seems like we just got the new annual catalog (which we did) but the 2020 Mini catalog is coming soon.  I will have copies available for you to pick up in early July.  If you are a distance customer please request a catalog and I will get one mailed to you.  The catalog goes live on August 4, 2020 and you can order from it until December 31st.
I can only show you the front of the catalog for now but as soon as my pre-order arrives I will begin working on samples and be posting them here.



Another bit of exciting news is that beginning today, July 1st through the end of the month Bonus Days are here again.  During July any product purchase of $50.00 earns you a $5.00 bonus code to spend in August.  So $50.00 earns you one code, $100.00 earns you two codes and so on.  That is before shipping and tax.  

Lastly, let me entice you with a sneak peek at the July Paper Pumpkin kit.  I think this is going to be a lot of fun.  Remember, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers receive a custom stamp case insert so the stamps can be stored in a standard Stampin' Up! stamp case.  I also try to provide 3 or more alternative ideas of what to do with the kit with instructions and video and I host monthly Paper Pumpkin gatherings for my local subscribers.   When you subscribe to a 3 month subscription in July you will qualify for a $5.00 bonus days coupon.  Just click on the picture to go to the page where you can order.

The HOST CODES for July are:
  • July 1 - 15   H3GUZ6F6
  • July 16-31   Q9PCEM4G
If you choose to order on  line please use whichever code works with the date of your order.  When you order online your order processes right away and is delivered directly to your door.
