Our Technique Class was a success on Sunday afternoon! We had lots of fun giggling while we blew ink across the paper using a straw. Our next class is scheduled for Sunday, February 17, 1:30-4:30. 

This is sample of the card we made on Sunday afternoon. 

Sale-A-Bration began yesterday. For every $50 you spend, you'll get to choose something for free. See me for details. Let me know if you'd like a book a party as well. 

Happy Stampin'!

Well, it's finally finished! Marc has worked so hard and it has paid off. The Stampin' Studio is complete and I am working away. I plan to post each Friday night with something I have made during the week. Below are pictures of my fabulous work space. Anyone want to visit?

What do you think?

 I didn't get to go to Leadership but this was announced today. What a great idea for those who want to do a little creative work but don't have a lot of room. Let me know if you're interested.


It's a Magical Paper Escape Every Month!

Sweep away the mundane-your creativity carriage awaits!
I'm Paper Pumpkin . . .
I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I'll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.
I come in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside:
All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!
Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone (even you) can enjoy!
Get Started
It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program starting Monday, January 14 by visiting and click Get it. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!
Of course, you'll want to know more. So here's the nitty gritty:
  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you and your customer 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!) The commissionable amount is $14.95 for each Paper Pumpkin.  
  • 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.

Happy New Year!
I am getting off to a great start by having my first technique class on Jan 20th. We will be using glossy white paper with ink refills. We will use straws to blow a design on the paper and then stamp an image using black staz-on ink. 

Let me know what you think about the samples. 

The new year has hit pretty hard around here. I got sick the Friday before Christmas and can't seem to shake it. Hopefully, it will be completely gone by the time we track out on Jan. 18th. 

I plan to make lots of cards in the new Studio. I will post pictures as soon as Marc cleans up his tools.
Happy Stampin'!
