March Paper Pumpkin Bonus! Last day to sign up is today!

I posted this information last week, but since today is the last day to sign up to receive the March kit I wanted to share the information again today.

Stampin' Up! is celebrating 6 years of Paper Pumpkin, and to celebrate this fun occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, they are offering a specially-designed March kit and a FREE STAMP SET.  That means , in March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit.

 A little bit more about the March Kit:

They don’t want to give away too much, but here’s a little bit about the March kit that will get you excited.  Because it’s Paper Pumpkin's 6th birthday, they have decided to create a kit that is perfect for making birthday cards!
  • The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
  • Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Poppy Parade
  • This kit has an element that is sure to “pop”!
  • The FREE stamp set is even bigger and better than your typical Paper Pumpkin stamp set and can be used on a variety of crafting projects.
If you are a current subscriber you do not need to do anything special to get this kit.  If you are a past subscriber you can sign up again to get this kit, and if you are a new subscriber you can click the Paper Pumpkin link in the upper left hand column of my blog to go to my Paper Pumpkin site and sign up.  If you are only interested in trying it for one month now would be the perfect time to do so. 
You need to sign up by March 10th to get this special kit.

Sale-a-bration Hello Cupcake and coming soon More Than Words Stamp Set

 As a demonstrator, I was able to preorder the new Sale-a-bration coordinating products that will be available for everyone on March 1st.  The card I made below, shows the current Hello Cupcake Stamp Set, which is one of your Sale-a-bration options, and the new More Than Words Photopolymer Stamp Set which will be available March 1st.  The sentiment in the stamp set paired perfectly for this card, and if you want even more coordination, there will also be Call Me Cupcake Thinlit Dies available on March 1st as well.

The colors used in my card are Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana.  I liked this color combination, and by adding a piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8" Reversible Ribbon I also got in a pop of that pretty Granny Apple Green.   I love when products coordinate, and Stampin' Up! always comes up with such new ideas to help make that coordination so much easier.  
Stamp Set available March 1st

Easy Valentine Treats

I used the new Hey Love stamp set to make some easy Valentine Treats.  I think the animal images and cute sayings are perfect for these M & M treats.  

I cut some circles to go behind my images to add a bit more embellishment, but in no time these treats are finished, and ready to be handed out for Valentine's Day.

December Paper Pumpkin - Alternate ideas!

Last week I posted the video showing you the December Paper Pumpkin kit that included everything you needed to make a yearly calendar for 2019, and 6 months into 2020.  Well I personally didn't need a yearly calendar since I already made one, so I thought I would turn each month into a specialized birthday card instead. 

I made the card below for my son's upcoming birthday which is on January 19th.  I just highlighted the 19, decorated the front of the calendar page using ink, stamps, and ribbon already in the kit, and attached it to a piece of Pool Party card stock.  I also stamped the inside with a personalized message and the card is finished and ready to be sent.

So, if you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber and don't need a calendar, here is another alternate idea.  Paper Pumpkin kits come with instructions to make a particular project, but as you can see, you have a lot of supplies included that can be used for so many more things.

As you can see from the flyer below, there are many ways to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, but you can also click the link in the left hand column of my blog and go directly to my Paper Pumpkin link to learn more.
