December Paper Pumpkin

If you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin you already received your December Kit so here are a few tips on putting it together.  First, the kit is not only for a year, but for 18 months so make sure when you put it together you have the correct order.  Next, you can watch the video below by Stampin' Up! to see more.

This kit makes a really nice gift for someone, but if you didn't want to keep it as a calendar you can use each month for a birthday card highlighting the birthday of the card recipient before sending it out. Gift it, edit it, keep it, but make sure you use it.  There are always alternate ways to use each monthly kit and if you have any questions or want more ideas feel free to comment below or send me an e-mail.

Cling Stamps coming soon!

Great news!  Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, Stampin' Up! will be introducing Cling Stamps. 

Here are a few details:
  • Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available either in cling (for red rubber stamps) or photopolymer.
  • Stamps in the 2018-2019 annual catalog (the current catalog) will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount, or photopolymer.
  • Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalog that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalog.
  •  In the 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps* will no longer be available. The only exception is background stamps in North America only, which will still be available in wood-mount
When you purchase the new Cling Stamps there will be a flyer inside each kit showing you how to mount your sets.  One thing I will make sure to let all of my customers know is that you need to be extra careful when placing your label onto your stamp.  Since they cling so well, once the label is on it would be very hard to reposition without possibly tearing your stamp.  

Another little bit of information I learned from other demonstrators is you can use the extra pieces of the cling sheet that will be left over after mounting your stamps and place it onto your current clear stamps.  This will help them adhere better as well.  

You  will also need to be careful when taking the stamp off of the block.  All of this will be a learning curve, but I know in the end I will be very happy to have a stamp that sticks so well and will be great with the Stamparatus as well.

You can see this short video made by Stampin' Up! that shows you a little bit more.  Click here to watch. 

When the Occasion and Sale-a-bration catalogs come out, you will see more about these new stamps and I will be happy to answer any questions you might have.  Just leave a comment below if you have any concerns or questions.

Stamparatus Bag coming soon!

"A tool as beloved and important as the Stamparatus deserves its own special treatment. And what better way to treat your most versatile stamping companion than by giving it its own special carrying and storage solution. Introducing the Craft & Carry Stamparatus Bag! It’s finally here!"  

I was excited when I saw this information sent to demonstrators from Stampin' Up!.  The Stamparatus now has it's own carry bag.  As a demonstrator I was able to preorder mine yesterday, and the good news for any of you that have your own Stamparatus is that even if you are not a demonstrator you can still order one for yourself starting December 5th.  

Here is more information about ordering below:

Item # for the Carry & Craft Bag is #149695 and retails for $29. 

If you do not already have the Stamparatus you can purchase both the tool and the bag using
Item #151961 and together they both retail for $78.

Another reminder is the release of several new tools to help you when using your Stamparatus.  You can see them here at my Online Store and also below. 

Finally, if you still don't know what the Stamparatus is, or what it can do, watch the video below, done by Stampin' Up! that shows you all of the great ways this tool helps you when making your cards.

I still have a few of my customers who are not sure if they want to subscriber to Paper Pumpkin, so I like to post videos of the current month's kit.  The October Kit  called Our Friends of a Feather,  is a “cut above the rest,” delivering cards with intricate detail. The kit contains all of the materials for making these very detailed, unique cards, also offering a versatile color palette. The warm fall tones fit perfectly with autumn’s changing leaves, but are also perfect for any occasion. Watch this month’s unboxing video, made by Stampin' Up!,  to capture exactly how to make the projects seen here!

If you would like to subscribe, you can click the Paper Pumpkin link in the left hand column of my blog.  If you want to get the November kit, which will contain items for Christmas projects,  you need to sign up by November 10th.  You can cancel your subscription at any time, skip a month, or get more than one kit if you so desire.
