The November Paper Pumpkin Kit Has Arrived!

My November Paper Pumpkin kits arrived yesterday and they certainly did not disappoint!  I have often said that the Christmas kits are my favorites, and this one is no exception!  I knew as soon as I saw the special edition box that I would love it, and I DO!  (There is something I just love about plaids in Christmas colors!)

This kit makes 10 gorgeous cards in reds, greens, white, and cream!  It also includes 10 matching envelopes with coordinating envelopes.  The stamp set is super versatile for the holidays, and the kit even includes a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Spot.  (My absolute favorite red for Christmas!)

Since I just got my kits, I have not assembled them yet.  I plan to do that this coming weekend!  I also plan to put together completed sets to sell at the Christmas Bazaar I am doing on December 1st.  I will also pics of the finished cards as I complete them.  In the meantime, you can take a peek at this quick video that shows the project, as well as how to complete it:

While it is too late to order this kit, there is a way you may still be able to get it!  Usually, Stampin’ Up! releases full kits and/or refills a little while after the initial kits are released.  But you must be a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber to order them.  Why not sign up for a month or two to try it?  Once you are a subscriber, you will have access to past kits so that when this one goes on sale, you can still scoop one up!  You can learn more about Paper Pumpkin and subscribe HERE.   You can also purchase a prepaid subscription in the online store!

I really, REALLY love this kit, and cannot wait until I get a chance to put it together!  (Just as an FYI, I ordered a handful of these kits as extras and will have them for sale as well at the Christmas Bazaar on December 1st.  If you are local to CT, feel free to stop by and check them out!)

Thanks for visiting today!  Please contact me with questions!

Christmas Bazaar December 1st!

I’m very happy to be back online after two days with no internet!  I live in a very rural area, and sometimes it goes down, and it usually takes a couple of days to get it back when it does.  It’s just one of those things you have to deal with when you live in the woods!

In just under two weeks, I will have a table at the Christmas Bazaar at the school that I work at!  I am actually in charge of the bazaar, and have booked over 30 vendors, plus there will be a Breakfast with Santa, raffles, kids’ activities, a bake sale, a holiday shop, and more!  If you are local to Connecticut, I would love for you to stop by!   Feel free to contact me for more info if you’re interested!

In order to prepare, this past weekend, I went through all my stuff and figured out what I am going to make to sell.  My plan is to have half of my display be Stampin’ Up! catalog merchandise, and the other half will be stuff I make with it.  As a demonstrator, I am limited to what merchandise I can sell at in person events, so all of my actual Stampin’ Up! products will be adhesives, kits, and retired merchandise.  But I pretty much have free reign over what I MAKE to sell!  I took some before pics of some of what I plan to use.  I have some items left over from last year that I am going to try to sell again this year, but I need to make some new stuff too.  I have a list of about 15 things that I want to get done, so I have A LOT to do, and not a lot of time to do it!!!!  Here are pics of what everything looks like now:

It doesn’t look like much now, but I will hopefully have it all fixed up and ready to sell buy the 1st of December!  My plan is to work on stuff every spare minute I have for the next two weeks and share the finished products with you as I go.  So please check back often to see what I come up with!  I seriously hope I can get it all done!

Thanks so much for checking in!  Hope you visit again soon!  🙂

Holiday Catalog Inventory Update

So I have some good news, and I have some not so good news…the good news is that this year’s Holiday Catalog has been wildly popular! The bad news is that certain items have been SO wildly popular that they are in danger of selling out before the end of the Holiday Catalog ordering period.
Most of these items are not carrying over into a later catalog, so at this point, once they are gone, they are gone for good.   While these items are still available as of the writing of this post, that could change at any time.  If you have your heart set on any of the products shown below, please order ASAP to avoid disappointment!

In addition to the above items being close to selling out, there are a handful of items that have already officially SOLD OUT. These products are no longer available, and unfortunately, Stampin’ Up! will NOT be getting more in before the end of the Holiday Catalog ordering period. They are:

While it is disappointing that these products are no longer available, there are many others that still ARE, and would be wonderful for you to use in your Holiday crafting!  If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know!

Thank you for visiting today!

A Big Change is Coming January 3rd!

Starting January 3rd, 2019, Stampin’ Up! will no longer sell red rubber stamps in a choice of wood mount or clear mount.  There will only be ONE option for red rubber stamps, and it will be a new and improved stamp called “cling” stamps!  These new cling stamps are new and improved clear mount stamps, with a new stamp decal that is sticky and clings amazingly well to clear stamping blocks!  I had a chance to use some of them at OnStage last week, and they are fantastic!  I love them already, and I am sure you will too!

So what does this mean exactly?  It means that beginning January 3rd, wood mount stamp sets will no longer be available.  There are two exceptions to this: large background stamps, and any stamp sets in the Annual Catalog that are currently offered in wood mount.  Moving forward, however, any NEW red rubber stamp sets produced will come only in the cling option!

Here’s a short and fun video demonstrating some features of the new cling stamps:

New stamp labels have been in the works for the last few years.  I absolutely love the clear mount stamps, but I don’t like how they don’t always stay on the block!  The new cling stamps will NOT come off your blocks!  Here’s a sneak peek at the instructions:

There will be lots more info on the new stamps as we get closer to their release!  In the meantime, please feel free to ask questions!

Thanks for checking in today!

My OnStage Team Swap Card

One of the best parts about going to OnStage is swapping with other demonstrators!  While I did not have time to make swap cards for general swapping, our team decided to do a team swap.  This is the card I made for that!  It is based on one I made earlier this year, with a few minor changes. Click HERE to see my original card!

For this version, I used Blackberry Bliss, Sahara Sand, Soft Sea Foam, and Whisper White as my colors.  The flowers, spatters behind the flowers, and the linen texture stamp on the Blackberry Bliss strip across the middle are from the Touches of Texture stamp set; the sentiment is from Ribbon of Courage; and the leaves in the corners are from the Rooted in Nature set.  The card is embellished with Linen Thread and Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins.

While most everything on the card was stamped with regular classic ink pads, the flowers were stamped in Memento ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  I used the Dark Soft Sea Foam and Light Blackberry Bliss blends on them.   I love how smooth and uniform the color is!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Thick Whisper White card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Blackberry Bliss middle layer:  3-3/4 x 5 inches

Sahara Sand top layer:  3-5/8 x 4-7/8 inches

Blackberry Bliss strip:  1-1/4 x 3-3/4 inches

Whisper White banner piece:  2 x 3-3/4 inches

 

I made 35 of these for our team swap, and got some really beautiful cards in return!  I will share them all hopefully soon!  If you have any questions about today’s card, please feel free to ask!

Thanks for stopping by!

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Shimmery White card stock base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
