Everyday Occasions is Here!

Wow! Did you see this?
Order YOUR Everyday Occasions Kit today!

What a GREAT idea, huh?

Many of you (and I'm included in this bunch too!) belong to My Paper Pumpkin. For us Pumpkineers, we receive a kit each month, delivered to our homes! We receive a stamp set each month, along with the supplies to complete that month's kit. Did I mention that FUN that we also receive when that wonderful red box arrives too?  :)

Well, how about having a kit that will make 20 (yes, 2-0!) cards! They are, hmmmm... EVERYDAY OCCASIONS cards! Stampin' Up! even includes a project sheet that shows you ALL 20 cards! All you have to add is a pair of Paper Snips and your adhesive (SNAIL or Anywhere Glue Sticks work best).

This kit comes with a SEVEN PIECE (yup - 7 pieces!) stamp set and includes a clear block and ink! At work, I have a STASH of cards in my desk drawer. Birthday, Thinking of You/Sympathy, Thank You - and I seem to keep replacing them because I use them so much!

Now, some may say these are for the new to papercrafting crafter. I don't know about you, but I'm so time crunched with work, home, school activities, church, and just life in general - I'm looking forward to an easy day of crafting! And this makes it SO MUCH EASIER! I don't have to pull out my papers, ribbons, bling, etc. - it all arrives in one easy box! LOVE IT!

Won't this make it so much easier to come up with ideas! Thank you Stampin' Up! for making our lives so much easier!

September is Almost Over!

Can you believe it? I'm posting this on Sunday evening, September 29th - that means just one more day in the month! YIKES!

And, I finally updated my header - have to do it before October arrived!
Finally - I've updated my September Blog Header!  :)

What do you think? Remember, these monthly wallpapers are FREE from Stampin'Up! Enjoy!

Paper Pumpkin from August!

I LOVE the August Paper Pumpkin!

It is called "Pedal Praise" and those of you who know me - know that my husband is an AVID bicyclist! I have so many ideas to use with this stamp set!

Here are the cards that my crafters made for the August kit:
August 2013 My Paper Pumpkin
Pedal Praise

Aren't they adorable! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

And did you notice? We made EIGHT cards - and the kit only comes with FOUR cards!!! All we did was add just a little bit of scraps and viola! Eight cards out of four! And the kit is only $14.95 (plus $5 shipping) each month. You'd probably pay WAY more than $20 for 8 cards. AND because you have the stamp set and ink, you can continue to make additional cards - it's almost like Stampin'Up! is paying YOU to take the kit! (almost, but not quite...)

AND my September Paper Pumpkin kit arrived - it's called Wahoo! and I used Pedal Praise with that kit and I really LOVE the September cards too!

You know, every month, I think that Stampin'Up! just cannot top the previous month's kit - and they do every month! How on earth do they do that?!

Hope you enjoy the August cards!
