Paper Pumpkin Possibilties Blog Hop: The Gift of Fall


Glad you could join us this month for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin and love to share our enthusiasm for this monthly box of fun and creativity with you. The Paper Pumpkin kit is designed so you can follow the instructions provided in the kit to make the projects, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild (as we have!) Hop along with us, as we will share alternate ideas on how we used the August Paper Pumpkin Kit: The Gift of Fall

Here is the kit as designed:

Stampin' Up! provided an Add On Bundle for those who prefer cards to bags. It was just cardbases and envelopes, here is what was in the bundle:

Here are my alternate designs:



I used the card fronts from the Add On Bundle and added embellishments from the kit, along with a little stamping. I love how this turned out and will probably make these up for my family for Thanksgiving cards...or maybe make into some fall birthday cards. 


Don't forget the inside:


And you know me, I love to make boxes out of card fronts! 
As soon as I saw the Add On card front with the leaves wreath, I thought, what a cute box that would make!


It holds 8 Hershey's mini's perfectly!


What else could you put in it?

I appreciate you visiting! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my projects. Then, click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Shirley's blog to see what fun thing she has come up with to share with you!



Oh wait...don't go away just yet, if you like Halloween, you won't want to miss the September kit.

This kit includes 20 food-safe treat boxes, a unique and exclusive Halloween stamp set, and a spooky, special-edition box. September’s kit also gives new meaning to the word “handmade.” (Cue the scary laughter! Bwahaha!)

Porthole using Sailing Home

Here is a fun card using the Sailing Home Stamp Set. I wanted it to look like a porthole. The lighthouse helps is stand. I think the lighthouse is a little crooked, but still like how it turned out. I used the water from the High Tide Stamp Set. These 2 sets coordinate beautifully together!


The silver metallic pearls finish it off nicely!

Until next time...Happy Craftin'!

Sailing Home

I am from Maine, and love lighthouses, the ocean, anything nautical, really. I knew this was a set I would have to have as soon as I saw the Sailing Home Stamp Set. Here is a cute and simple card using it. I used the coordinating Designer Series Paper, Come Sail Away, and the Navy and Sahara Bakers Twine, along with some of the new Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon.



I like the little knot to finish the card off....

Hope you enjoy, and until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

IDEAS Blog Hop: Daisy Lane


Welcome to the monthly IDEAS Blog Hop. We are a group of international demonstrators who create a monthly bundle of tutorials for our customers and team members. The August bundle theme features "Seasons." I chose to feature summer; it is fun to see everyone else's interpretations of Seasons. 

The tutorials include current Stampin' Up! products, have color photos, supply lists, step by step instructions, and featuring both imperial and metric measurements! While I am not going to show you my actual projects, here is a sneak peek of some of the included projects:
To see all the projects fully and get the instructions, join my team*, place a minimum order, or just purchase the bundle.

But.....to give you an idea of what the projects are like, here is another card I recently made with the Daisy Lane Bundle. It is considered a fun fold, and uses the Center Step technique. 



Love how the Melon Mambo pops against the different greens!

This month, everyone is hopping, so the bundle features multiple tutorials from 12 demonstrators. Most tutorials feature at least one card and one project, some include multiples. There are over 24 projects in this bundle. Would you like a copy of the instructions of all the projects to use for your personal use, or even to use in your classes? Contact me, or your participating demonstrator, to find out how to purchase the tutorial bundle or even better, get it for FREE!

Once you have received the tutorials, please remember not to share or distribute the printed or electronic copies of these bundles. We have worked hard to provide these exclusive projects for your use. If you know someone that would like to purchase the bundle, please direct them to me, or their participating demonstrator, to obtain their copy. Thanks for your support.

Leave me a comment before you hop on over to Dorothee's blog to see what season she has chosen and what fabulous project(s) she has to share with us!

Thanks for stopping by! 
Until next time...Happy Craftin'!!



*From July 1 until August 31, new demonstrators will receive an additional $30 to put toward bonus products in their Starter Kit.
