Guest Stamper/Paper Pumpkin~September

When Debbie Pine sent me this photo this morning, it made my day!  I love it when my friends and customers enjoy their product so so much that they stay up late creating.  In Debbie’s message she said ” I had a BLAST”, I hope Stampin’ Up! has refills for this kit.

Debbie saw my owl and the pouch boxes and went to town casing them (I got the idea for the handle box from Debbie Henderson). BUT the cards are her own designs ( or maybe they are the instruction booklet ideas)?  I haven’t looked at the instructions booklet yet.  Either way, YOU did a great job Debbie.  Thank you for sharing.

What a HOOT!

Whooooo wouldn’t love receiving a goodie in this owl pillow box?

My Paper Pumpkin arrived yesterday afternoon.  Whaaahoo!  I dropped everything and went to my studio to create.  When I opened up the box I first noticed the flyer which tells us about the upcoming October and November kits.  The flyer tells us that the two kits are made- to -match projects, perfect for gift giving.  That sounds exciting!!!

Then as I set the flyer down I saw the beautiful stamp set in this month’s kit.  Wow!  What a nice set, very very versatile that is for sure.   As I opened up the project kits contents I was drawn to the embossed, craft in color pillow boxes.  I want you to know that when my Paper Pumpkin arrives I don’t  look at the instruction booklet.   I always just look at the contents and start creating.  I’m not suggesting that you do that, but that is what I do.  By not looking at the instructions, I get to use my imagination to create what ever I want.  This time I came up with this cutie pie OWL.

I’m sharing this months alternative project with everyone, however starting in October, I will create alternative projects with my Paper Pumpkin kits and share the exclusive projects via email with all of the ladies who subscribe to Paper Pumpkin and selected me as their demonstrator.  Sending a special project to my subscribers is my way of saying THANK YOU!

I think pillow boxes make cute owls so I started putting one together.  The only thing that wasn’t in the kit is the black card stock that I used for eye balls, the 3/4″ circle punch and the thick jute.  But everything else came in this months paper pumpkin kit.

Now I need to check out the instruction booklet and see what Stampin’ Up! created with the kit.  I’m sure the projects are beautiful.


Side view, don’t you love the clothes pin feet? The clothes pins allow her to stand on her own.  Yep the clothes pins are in the kit too.

If you want to try out Paper Pumpkin just go to the side bar and click on the link.  After you have filled out the subscription information you will click continue and that is where they ask you who your demonstrator is.  Just let them know it’s me!

I received a phone call from Debbie when she received this months Paper Pumpkin, she was so excited, she loves it.  Then I saw on FB where Rhonda received hers.  Rhonda was so excited too. I love it when I know my customers are enjoying their product.  NOW hopefully they will like this little OWL.

Gift Box In A Card Class

Isn’t this a fantastic idea? You can set this gift box card on a desk for a co-worker, at the place setting of a special friend or anywhere it will get noticed by the recipient.

While I was on the Thailand Incentive trip with Stampin’ Up!  Sandy Carlson shared this amazing idea.  I now want to share it with you.  In order to do that I’ve scheduled a class for October 13th at 6p.m.  What better way to spend Friday the 13th than making a cute Christmas card, right?  No bad luck that day, instead a whole lot of fun and creativity. 

Remember all you have to do to change up this card is change the designer series paper.  This gift box card can be used for any occasion.  Anytime you are giving a gift and a card this card will make a very special statement.  

When I first saw this card I noticed that there were no instructions for a card lining.  It didn’t look finished to me so I figured out how to line the inside of the card.  The cards that we make will be lined and have a finished look.  Another thing about this card, you don’t need an envelope.  

When you arrive to class, your packet will be ready for you.  Everything will be cut out and ready to go.  You will take home written instructions and measurements so that you can easily make this card over and over again.



Date:  Friday October 13

Time:  6p.m

Cost: A minimum $20.00 order that night.


If this date or time does not work for you, just let me know.  We can get together when you have the time to come sit and relax and create with me.  

Do you need this class sent to you in the mail?  Let me know and I can do that too.  

Enjoy your day my friends, Live Loved ~  Beverlee

Witch’s Broom

Happy Monday friends.  

Today I want to share with you the goodies I’m making for this years Halloween party at Heather’s school.  

I always make goodies for my daughter class parties.  This year I thought I would make 66 of these cute brooms.  YEAH, you heard me right 66.  

I ordered candy sticks from Amazon Prime.  The candy sticks make perfect broom handles.  Then I used crumb cake card stock to create the broom.  Fringe scissors cut the strips lickity split.  Basic black bakers twine was used to make a cute bow and tear and tape keeps everything together.  

I think we will make these adorable brooms at OPEN HOUSE.  Let me know if you are coming to open house so that I can have everything ready for you.  The next open house is the first Thursday of October, from noon until 8p.m.  

These brooms are so so simple to make.  If you want me to, I can record a DIY video so you can make some at home.  Just let me know that you want me to do that.

I failed to mention that the fringe scissors are in the clearance rack!!!! What a deal.  Just click on the image below to go directly to my store. Once you are in my store you will see that the scissors are only $6.00.

Merry Patterns 3

The candles in this set are fun to use.  I need to sit down and make a birthday card using these candles too.  This set is very versatile.  Good Job Stampin’ Up!

This stamp set is a two step stamp set.   The first step is to stamp the outline and then the second step is to stamp the detail into the out line.  Two step stamping may sound difficult but its not.  Lining up the images is easy because the stamps are photopolymer, which means completely see through.

One of the stamps in this set is an outline of six candles.  I stamped that image twice to create a line of 12 candles.  Then the second step was to stamp the candles detail into the outline.  There is even another stamp that is the candle flames.  You don’t have to color in the flames in individually, YEAH!!!  You just ink up the line of flames stamp and stamp them into the outline.

This card is loaded up with texture.  The texture was accomplished by using embossing folders.  Folders may be my favorite tool.  Well that and punches.  The two folders I used on this card are beauties that’s for sure.

I’m really surprised how much I love thin ribbon.  However I do find myself doubling it a lot.  I love the way a double bow looks.  Double bows have so much more presents.

I used a corner rounder to dress up this card.  Isn’t it funny how simply rounding corners can change the whole look of a card?

I hope that you are enjoying my saga of “Merry Patterns” samples.  I just can’t put the set down, it’s a great one.
