Swirly Fun & Scribbles

Swirly Bird & Swirly Scribbles

I am completely In Love with this Set & the Famelits!  I've seen so many cute, cute, cute ideas.  Here are a few of mine:

Another demonstrator came up with this idea, Kim Jolly. I've switched it up a bit and keep it sentiment free so that you could use for Memorial Day, 4th of July, or for anyone who is serving our country.  There is a quick video on the card flag on my Stampin' Up! Facebook Page:  


These two (above & Below) use the positive & negative image from the Swirly Scribbles & Hello You Framelits, and Swirly Bird stamp set.

I know that there will be a LOT more ideas coming with this bundle.  I hope that you enjoyed these!

$5 Paper Pumpkin

Paper Pumpkin Fun!

I am so excited about this AMAZING SALE!  Perfect timing as I was about to post these pictures of past Paper Pumpkin projects (say that 3 times fast). 

Get ready for a flash sale! Starting at 7:00 PM (ET) on Thursday June 9th, get your first Paper Pumpkin kit for only $5 USD. Don’t miss this one!

When the sales begins on Thursday use promo code “ONEDAYDEAL”  at the link below:

Until Friday before 11:50 PM (MT), which is actually Saturday 1:50 AM Eastern Time.

Below are some samples of the May Paper Pumpkin kit.  It came with both card bases that had 2 different style laser cuts (see below), orange corrugated pieces to fit behind the cut openings, "Happy" stickers in cursive and block lettering, Accessories, and envelops of course.   Every month you get a stamp set and an Ink Spot, or two. (small 1" square ink pads).  You will also receive everything you need to complete the cards, including adhesive! 

This is the basic design in the May 2015 Kit 

I added a sentiment to the inside and attaching the suggested backing for the inside front to the inside back of the card...just to be different.

For the above I used the sticker (Happy) as a stencil. When I realized I liked the color the sticker turned, I added it with the Happy repeated at the bottom.

Just a slight difference from the original design above.

For the one on the left, I added a bow by using it with one of the corrugated 'inside' pieces cut using the Bow Builder Puncher. 
For the one on the right, I had inked up the grids from the card front in Old Olive & Always Artichoke inks then trimmed it out of the card front (see the card on the left? It's the same as the bottom piece, turned upside down)  I thought it looked liked trees so adhered the 'grid'  and I made it a Christmas card.  

For this one I wanted to completely change the design, but I love the basic cards that came with the kit.  Behind the 'grid' I adhered a piece of Specialty Designer Series Paper from the New Affectionately Yours #141532 ($13) and created the flower design & sentiment from the stamp set, Love & Affection #141545 (Photo-polymer $16).

When you join Paper Pumpkin through me ( you will receive a variety of ideas on how to use the pieces in the kit to create something different than the basic design, like those above.  

Here's a sample of what were created with the kit from the April kit, which was this darling wreath.  

I created this card using the left over pieces from the wreath leaves. The flowers are from a special additional stamp set that Stampin' Up! included in April to celebrate Paper Pumpkin's 3 year anniversary!  What a nice gift! 

If you have any questions about this Amazing Promotion, please let me know.  I will be happy to chat, email, Facebook, or text!

Stamp Of The Month

Stamp Of The Month

Sharing the June club cards.  Usually this club meets on the first Saturday of the month, last week.   However, I am a bit behind posting the projects.  I hope you like them!

This card was my swap for the April Stampin’ Up! OnStage in Salt Lake City, Utah.  So fun!

I think this one is my favorite!  It was designed by Buffy Cooper

This one I redesigned from a swap by an unknown demonstrator.  Totally CASE'd her background idea.

OK, kinda love this one too.  So smart to take these two shapes and turn them into a lake scene.  She stamped them on Watercolor Paper.  Created by Betti & Barbra

Next month we will be creating with the new set

Love & Affection

Love this sample by Bonnie Oniel

This stamp set is a lower price than usual for a Club selection so there will be more than the minimum of projects, and more added accessories to the projects! Why not join us?

Stamp Of The Month is a subscription club you can join to add a fun new stamp to your collection every month.  But as a club member you will also receive a minimum of 4 different projects made with each month selected stamp set.  This includes FULL COLOR directions and the card stock and accessories* you need to complete each project!  You get all for just $35 a month (add $6 for shipping if you cannot come to class or pick up your project in a timely manner).

You can start with next month’s Club Selection shown below.  Just send payment through Paypal to get started!
* does not include inks, embossing powders, misc. stamps that might be used but are not in the monthly selected stamp set (usually this is a sentiment).

Silver Elite or above.  Here I am enjoy some virgin drinks with my friends.

The next photos show the venue for our dinner - very elegant, and of course, the food!

Dinner was yummy, I know, looks small but we were full fast!'s ALL Chocolate, even the leaf & that 'stick'

One of the most fun things is walking on stage for various achievements.  I have walked on stage
