Feeling Sentimental

Are you feeling sentimental?  I guess I was ... these are two cards using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Feeling Sentimental.  These would make great guy cards.  The colors for both are Night of Navy, Early Espresso, Summer Starfruit, and Naturals Ivory.  The polka dot paper comes from the Spring Catalog called Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack.

Guest Card

Today's card is not mine, actually it came from Nancy Kuenzi, one of my "brainstorming" Stampin' Up! buddies.  Each  month we do a shoebox swap and share ideas.  It has been such a joy to have made so many new friends since I have started Stampin' Up! just over five years ago.  And now is the best time to join ... during Sale-A-Bration!

When you join during Sale-A-Bration, you’ll get 25% more products for FREE in your starter kit (which you get to choose)!  Interested?  Click here to sign up, or email me if you have questions about joining my team.

Patterned Occasions Thanks

Gotta love Sale-A-Bration!  Simply order $50 worth of regular priced merchandise and get FREE items from the Sale-A-Bration collection.  This card was made with just about all SAB items ... the Sycamore designer paper, button, and ribbon, and the stamp called Patterned Occasions.

Paper Pumpkin

It's a Magical Paper Escape Every Month!


Sweep away the mundane-your creativity carriage awaits!
I'm Paper Pumpkin . . .

I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I'll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.

I come in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside:
All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!

It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program starting Monday, January 14 by visiting www.mypaperpumpkin.com and click Get it. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!
Of course, you'll want to know more. So here's the nitty gritty:
  • Each month you'll be sent a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)

  • We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.

(Let's say you sign up on May 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we'll send your first kit around June 15th.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!)
