Bloomin' Bouquet Project Kit!

Here's a cute video that demonstrates what is included and how to make:

Mother's Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There's no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.
As if that weren't enough, the kit contains a "baker's dozen"! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn't normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you'd like to give a little "thank you".

It's only $12.95!!!
Item 134542
It's only available while supplies last so order one today HERE in time for Mother's Day!

Kit contents:
  • 2 sheets of preprinted and precut flowers on 12" X 12" cardstock; makes 13 flowers using Pool Party, Gumball Green, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Rich Razzleberry
  • 13 Vintage Faceted Buttons
  • 13 green floral wire stems
Adhesive not included. (Glue gun recommended.)

Beautiful Swaps and Friendships

I participate in lots of swap groups. This weekend I hosted a group of Easter, Mother's Day, and Father's Day swaps. Today I wanted to share some of them....

Tere C.

Michelle S.

Chris K.

Jackie W.

Sandy P.

If you would like to participate in a next swap all you need to do is sign on to be a demonstrator on my team! We would love to have you join us and right now is an awesome time to sign.

You choose $156.50 worth of products and pay only $99.00 (free shipping) just pay tax for your state.

If you have some concerns about signing on I will try to answer some of your questions:

I’ve heard from some people that they don’t want to sign on when they know they aren’t going to sell to others and they don’t feel it is right to purchase the kit and get the deals.

Please, please don’t feel that way. Stampin’ Up! loves their hobby demonstrators just as much as the business minded demonstrators.

Stampin’ Up! tells us and encourages us to Spread the Love of Stamping and Share our great products with everyone.

Now with that being said don’t you want to give us a try and use the special going on right now to get your started?

To sign all you have to do is go to my website: and click on "Join the Fun"; then click on "Join Now". Click on the kit and then click on how you would like your catalogs and supplies, next just enter the products that you want to receive; remember you may choose anything up to $156.50 but you can’t go over. Don't miss out on this wonderful promotion as it ends on 3/22/13!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

Best of Birthdays...part II

Here's another card using a stamp from the Best of Birthday's set.  This particular stamp has never been released before and only available for a limited time.  The fabric flower was made from the Blossom Party die.  Thanks!

Best of Birthdays Stamp Set

I don't do too many 3-D cards, so this one was a challenge to myself.  The awning is made from the Word Window punch, and I used two stamp sets; Create a Cupcake and Best of Birthdays.  Don't forget it is Stampin' Up's 25th anniversary and they are releasing a "Best Of...." limited edition monthly stamp set to celebrate!

Black, White and a Splash of Color

On a lazy Sunday morning, I decided to pull out some of my 'oldies, but goodies'.  This card uses a retired set "Because I Care"....I love how the hydrangea turned out from embossing it!  I used scraps from old Designed Series Paper "Night and Day".  Enjoy~

Your Paper Pumpkin is Waiting for You!

Calling all Crafty Cinderellas.....

 How it works:

Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep.  Each provides the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!
·         Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with project cards, journals, décor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and precut everything for you!)
·         Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
·         Each kit gives you a 30-minute creativity escape.
·         We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.  
·         You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next 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!). 
·         There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
·         Starting in early March, we'll offer a Try-It kit if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month only.
Sign up for your monthly Paper Pumpkin by visiting and click Get it.  Please select me as your demonstrator. Starting in early March, you can try Paper Pumpkin for one month by visiting our online store.
A Free Gift in Your Very First Kit
The Welcome Kit is the very first Paper Pumpkin you will receive in your first month of membership.  The Welcome Kit includes a free gift-a clear acrylic block!

More Paper Pumpkin Details…..

Q: Will the items in each Paper Pumpkin be available for sale individually?
A: Part of the fun of having a Paper Pumpkin membership is receiving exclusive products to play with!  Most of the items in your Paper Pumpkin are exclusive, never-before seen products (can you say yippee?)  You will, however, see a few tried-and-true products in your Paper Pumpkin that you can buy individually in the catalog.
Q: Is there any other way to buy monthly Paper Pumpkin kits?
A: You need to be a member to receive the monthly Paper Pumpkin.  Past kits will not be available at this time.
Q: How do I see the upcoming Paper Pumpkin kits?
A: One of the best parts of your Paper Pumpkin membership is that you never know what is going to be in that beautiful red box.  It’s like opening a present every month—we don’t want to ruin the surprise for you!

All kits that include stamps will use the Clear Mount format of rubber stamps.  This is why your Welcome Kit includes our gift to you of a Stampin’ Up size D acrylic clear block.

Welcome Kit contains supplies for 4 embellished cards and includes the following as pictured.  All follow on kits will not include a block but will include all materials & instructions needed (except adhesives) to complete that months project set.  

Try It Kit – order # 132599  -  $16.95 - available through your demonstrator or the online store lets you try the Paper Pumpkin experience for a single month.  Buy one or as many as you would like to share or give as gifts.  No commitment beyond your initial purchase.

Kit includes 2 pocket journals, stamps, Island Indigo ink spot, bakers twine, die cut stickers and a Stampin’ Up size D acrylic block as pictured.  What better way to keep track of those jots and thoughts in style!
Reminder:  At this point only the Welcome and Try It kits will contain blocks.
