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.

August Paper Pumpkin

My Paper Pumpkin kit arrived today.  As I opened the box I got very excited.  If you know me you know that I like the larger image stamps.  Well the first thing that I saw when I pulled back the tissue was a very big stamp that says “With Much SYMPATHY”.  I know I will use the sympathy stamp a lot, unfortunately we need a sympathy card more often than we like to think about.  The stamp set in this kit is GREAT!

The other thing I wanted to talk about today is what I do with my Paper Pumpkin Kits.  First I turn the orange box inside out so that the craft side is on the outside.  The box is a great size.  You can use it as a mailing box because it’s so sturdy. Or you can embellish it and use it as a gift box.  The second thing I do is I look at the instruction booklet and I make one card using the suggested design. Third I make a card from scratch.  I don’t pay any attention to the instruction booklet and I design a card of my own.  In the picture above the card in front is my design and the back card is one of the suggested designs.

This kit came with a stationary box.  It’s adorable. the box has a clear cover so you can see what you placed inside.  The kit includes a long piece of ribbon so that you can keep the box closed with a pretty bow.  The bottom of the stationary box is a very nice floral pattern.  All of the cards along with their coordinating envelopes will fit perfectly inside.

In addition to the stamps, cards, envelopes and stationary box, this kit has printed tags that say THANKS and CONGRATS.  There are also blank tags.  The kit has two sheets of leaves and ferns, three types of card stock flower embellishments, glue dots, dimensionals, a small spool of Night of Navy twine and a Night of Navy ink spot.  Holy cow that is a lot of product for $19.95.

66 Halloween Test Tubes

This is what 66 test tubes decorated and filled with M&M’s looks like.

I like to make special treats for my daughter Heather’s students on the holidays, but 66 is a lot. This year it was simple thanks to My Paper Pumpkin.  Thank you so much Stampin’ Up!

Heather came over the other day.  She went into my shop and saw these treats before they were finished.  She loved the test tube idea. She said, “OMG these test tubes would make an adorable wedding favor.” When I showed her the stickers and tags and told her that they were for her students Halloween treats, she squealed out loud.  I’m so glad she loves them like I do.  It is always so much fun handing out treats on Halloween and watching all the children’s eyes light up.

If you have not subscribed to MPP yet, you may want to.  I have a feeling the Christmas kit is going to be amazing.  We never know what the contents is going to be.  But Stampin’ Up! knows what we like and they don’t like to disappoint.

You can click on the link on your right and get all signed up, it’s easy.
