Birthday Month Fun Continues

Birthday month fun continues with the Annual and Holiday catalogs! I’ve posted cards on my Facebook page and added to the 2017 gallery on my website so don’t forget to like and comment on the Facebook page or comment on these blog posts during August with a chance to win one of 3 prizes from the new Holiday Catalog.  Look for details on an earlier post.

New Catalogs should be shipping and arriving to you soon!

Stamping – short and sweet

This week’s Facebook Live video featured the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper and my Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers, which I cannot get enough of! Love these stickers!

Paper Pumpkin Special – now is the time to try it!

The special is for new subscribers only but it is a great time to try Paper Pumpkin. I got an email that my August kit is on the way, so I’ll post a sample as soon as I receive it but they said we won’t want to miss the upcoming Fall and Holiday kits!

Something to make you smile!

I’m ordering mine next week!

July is going to be so much fun!

This past weekend I went on a retreat at the monastery that I am a Benedictine Oblate. The topic was The Art of Pausing.  We talked about about so many wonderful things but one topic that weaved throughout the weekend was allowing time to be creative – poetry, coloring, journaling, painting and of course, making hand crafted cards! Take time each and every day to pause and allow your creative spirit to soar!

Paper Pumpkin – Monthly Creativity in a Box!

For those just beginning their journey into the wonderful world of stamping (or you are a stamper and want quick easy projects to make), it can be overwhelming trying to decide what to purchase or getting enough product to feel like you have choices to put together card ideas of your own. Your solution – Paper Pumpkin!

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription from Stampin’Up! with cards and envelopes or supplies for the project you will make, stamps, a Stampin’ Spot (ink), embellishments and adhesive.

Now is a great time to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin – there is a discount on a 3 month subscription ($55 instead of $59 for the normal discounted 3 month subscription) AND you will select a free Sale-a-bration item. Subscribe for a year and earn 4 free items!
