April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Spoiler Alert- Stampin’ Up! A Sara Thing

Hi!!  I’m sure you have all noticed that I’ve been out of the blogging scene for a while now.  I didn’t exactly mean to disappear, but I had to prioritize things a little differently.

Between my work as a teacher, my work as a fitness coach, and my coursework- along with other little things like getting married– I had to put my regular posting activity on the back burner.

I can’t say that I’m back just yet, but I plan to get back into the swing of things soon.

I did want to pop in this week, however, and share the newest Paper Pumpkin kit with you.

This is April’s kit, which is called A Sara Thing.  It came with all the wonderful supplies pictured below (including watercolor pencils!!)- supplies to create 12 fun cards!

I love how I can create cute cards quickly, without having to figure out my own design.  And once I’ve assembled them, I have great stamps, ink, and extra goodies to use on future projects!!

November 2016 Paper Pumpkin Spoiler Alert- Stampin’ Up! Wonderful Winterland

Good morning!

Sorry I’ve been such a slacker with the blogging thing.  I didn’t realize until I started this post that I haven’t posted anything since last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit!  I have been stamping and I do have some things to share.  I’ve just been incredibly busy with trying to keep my head above water with my work and classes.

I’ve got three more weeks of the fall semester and hopefully I can get back on track.

Guess what?!  The Online Extravaganza is HERE!!  I’m having some issues with my online store, but you can click below to be routed to the Stampin’ Up! website and you can either enter my name as your demonstrator if you wish to order, or you can contact me directly.


Anyways, today I want to share this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  I’d have to say that it’s my favorite Christmas kit, and one of my favorite overall kits.  The kit is called Winter Wonderland and it comes with supplies to create eight beautiful cards, envelopes included.  It has a sweet stamp set and it comes with TWO ink spots.

Check it out:

Good morning!  I just had to share the video for this embossing folder with you!  I chose the Wrapped in Warmth stamp set as an incentive that Stampin’ Up! offered.  I didn’t even notice the embossing folder at the time, but now I HAVE to get it!!  I have a feeling I know what I’m using for this year’s Christmas cards!!

Hooray Happy Birthday Card Using Stampin’ Up!Confetti Celebration Stamp Set

Hi there!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already Wednesday!  That’s the thing about having a lot going on- the days go so fast!  Too bad time couldn’t slow down, at least on the weekends 🙂

Speaking of time going fast, I was a little late in getting out cards to two very special people who had birthdays this week.  Monday was Danielle’s birthday.  She is my oldest nephew’s girlfriend and my great nephew’s mama.  I don’t get to see her often and I’m still getting to know her well, but she’s been a nice addition to our family.  Yesterday was the birthday of my youngest nephew, Zeeke.  He is eight!

This is the quick card I made for Zeeke.  It was inspired by a Pinterest card by Brian King.

September 2016 Paper Pumpkin Spoiler Alert- Stampin’ Up! Something Good to Eat

Hi there!  Long time no see!  You may have noticed that I took several weeks away from posting.  I have had a lot going on with being back to work, taking fall classes, and being present in my health & fitness coaching position.  It has been difficult to balance those three things with home/family life which has led to a decrease in my crafting/blogging time.  I wanted to let you know that I’m still here though!

So today’s post is not so much of a “spoiler alert” since this is September’s Paper Pumpkin kit and it is now October!!  But if you have not yet seen it, this post is for you 🙂

This kit came with 16 tubes and lots of tags, in addition to the stamps, ink, accessories, and adhesive.  I have seen people fill them with candy, hot cocoa mix, bath salts, glitter, tiny bells, etc.  I only made up this one until I figure out the best way to use them to fit my needs for the upcoming holiday(s).
