PPP Blog Hop: Sunshine & Smiles


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. Our mission is to show you alternate projects using the Paper Pumpkin kit contents. We love Paper Pumpkin, and I usually love the projects as intended, but....it is also fun to change them up. I also like to use the stamps so people can see how to use the stamps, once the kit is gone. 

Here is my alternate card for the Sunshine and Smiles kit: 

I used a Thick Basic White Card base and some Basic White to stamp the flowers and frog on. I cut them out with the add-on Dies. And I used Stampin' Blends to color the flowers and frog. Everything else came from the kit. 

This kit was so cute! And the add-on dies were awesome. Hope Stampin' Up! will do dies again!! 

Let's hop on over to Jennifer's blog to see what alternate project she made using the February kit. 

Thanks for stopping by!!

IDEAS Blog Hop: That's So "Suite" of You!

Hello crafters!  I'm so excited to share our February IDEAS Blog Hop with you today. The theme is "That's So Suite of You". We are featuring products from some of the Stampin' Up! suites, Annual and Mini Catalog Suites. What is a Suite", you ask? Well, as Suite is more than a bundle. It typically will have coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP), and embellishments and/or ribbon, in addition to the stamp and dies and/or punch.  

This graphic is a sneak peek at the some of the projects in our February IDEAS Tutorial Bundle.

Our tutorial is full of amazing creative ideas! I am using the Butterfly Kisses Suite from the Annual Catalog. My actual tutorial designs are secret and exclusively shared in the tutorial.  But, here is a another project, not included in the bundle, using the products from the  same suite. Consider it a bonus project, my gift to you!


 There are over 80 pages of fabulous projects from 15 global demonstrators. Each tutorial designer features at least two projects, some more. The projects include cards, home decor and treat/gift holders. The tutorial has color photos, imperial and metric measurements and step by step instruction to guide you.

Would you like a copy of the tutorials for these projects for your personal use, or even to use in your classes? Contact your member demonstrator or me.  I offer three options to acquire our IDEAS tutorial bundle:

1. Place a $35 order with my online host code. Order here

2. It is free for all of my team members, join here.

3. Purchase it for $15 USD.

 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 to obtain their copy. Thanks for your support!
