Pelotonia FUNdraiser - Cupcakes with What Looks Like Dazzling Diamonds? - Stampin' Up!

I've been busy setting up the rooms and getting the raffle prizes ready this evening, and I just realized that I didn't post a picture of the fabulous cupcakes that you will be trying out today. Where does the time go?

Check this out! My friend, Cyndie, baked these for the Pelotonia FUNdraiser!

Now, she calls the sparkly colors "Disco Dust." I think it looks just like tinted Dazzling Diamonds! When we walked out with the cupcakes from her shop, Happy Hostess House, the sunlight hit the cupcakes and they just DAZZLED!

And I did ask her to get in the picture with her beautiful creations, however she declined. Picture wouldn't do her justice anyway, just as this picture does not do the cupcakes justice! Hubby printed out some little flags with the Pelotonia arrow on them (Cyndie's suggestion), and I'll be placing those on the cupcakes (hopefully) before you arrive in the morning!

Alrighty then... off to meet Mr. Sandman as we will be crafting in just a few short…

As many of you know, I have a BUNCH of retired Designer Series Papers, so I chose something that was summer-y and cheer-y! Combined the old with the new - retired papers and brads with current punches (Petite Petal and Decorative Label) and stamp set (Perfect Blend)! Thanks so much to Deb Valder for sharing her cute ideas on these mini coffee cups! 

These mini coffee cups are just the cutest thing! I worked on them during my lunch and, since most of my coworkers are male... Well, let's just say, they had a few laughs! According to my co…

Bloom With Hope and Sweet Taffy - Stampin' Up!

We had the BEST time on Saturday! My quarterly downline meeting was on Saturday, which also was the final day of the 2014 Stampin' Up! Convention. AND Stampin' Up! offered a LIVE streaming video.

We changed the time of the meeting to the afternoon so that we could watch the video together. After our meeting, we also had pizza while we watched the video. It was almost like being there, but with the comforts of home!

Want to see what we made during our Latte Joy Stampers meeting? LOVE the ideas! 

We made this cardstock sampler first. This is really nice to have so that you can compare the colors and see what YOU like! I was showing mine to my mom when she was here in June. We took this thing apart so many times! Mom kept track of the color combinations that she liked. I place my business card on the front, so all of the cardstock pieces are the size of a business card. Nice size to fit in my bag AND keep on my craft table!

Then we made two different projects. One was a cute little &…

Paper Pumpkin Subscription!

Crafters -

It is now July 13th. First, I can't believe it is July already, but we're not going to go there!  But second, did you know that if you join My Paper Pumpkin by the 10th, your beautiful red box would already be in the process of shipping to you?

That's right! When you subscribe by the 10th of each month, you will receive that month's Paper Pumpkin in the mail! Right to your own door! Mine actually fits in the mailbox and our mailperson has put the regular mail on either side of the box. It is always a nice surprise to see that red box in there!

I just sent my subscribers a little something in the mail. I just have one more to meet up with to give her hers. Thought about dropping it at her doorstep, but didn't think it would be a wise idea to open her screen door at 4am. :)

Few things I want to share with you about My Paper Pumpkin.

When you come to the Pelotonia FUNdraiser/3-4-5 Card Class on Saturday, July 26th, I'm going to give away one of the original …

Perfect Blend + Past Paper Pumpkin = Work of Art / Stampin' Up!

I had so much fun playing with my stamps on Monday. This post was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but since Stampin' Up! announced so many wonderful things, I blogged about that on Tuesday instead. You can read all about those updates HERE.

BUT, here is the card I made on Monday:
Can I just tell you how easy this card was to make? Well, I used the Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes, so I didn't have to cut any papers at all! Just opened the package. These come 20 in a package and come with the envelopes for just $5.95. The notecards also come in Crumb Cake - that's new this year!

Then I grabbed my Hey ThereWelcome Kit/Paper Pumpkin Starter Kit, which is now available for purchase as a Past Kit but only available to Paper Pumpkin Subscribers - Item # is 132599. I really like that "hey there friend" stamp - use it all the time! And you can see all the Past Kits that can be ordered by going HERE.

I pulled out my Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, So…

Happy Independence Day!

Crafters -

Here in Central Ohio, we celebrate Red, White and Boom. This year it was celebrated last night on July 3rd. While I was downtown for the fireworks, I wasn't outside to view them. BUT they sounded wonderful AND I was able to watch them on TV! They looked SPECTACULAR! Thanks so much to all the first responders who worked last night ensuring our safety! 

One of my friends, Lynn, who is also a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, shared a photo of her June Paper Pumpkin (Pinwheel Party) with me. How nice is this?!
Lynn advised that SHE will be using these today! Thanks so much Lynn for sharing these!
