Paper Pumpkin March 2017 Alternatives

Hello and welcome.  Glad to see you here.  I have 3 announcements today.

  1. Stampin’ Up! has released some new products for sale-a-bration yesterday.  If you still need more encouragement to shop then there it is.  Sale-a-bration is almost over.
  2.  Sara Douglas the CEO of Stampin’ Up! has designed next month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit and there will be a FREE gift inside the box from her.  If you want to sign up please do so. 
  3. Starting with March’s Paper Pumpkin, I will be giving my monthly subscribers a perk.  In your email there will be an inspiration package offering you about a dozen exclusive, never seen before tutorials on how to use your Paper Pumpkin supplies in an alternative way (this is in addition to the alternatives I share with you on video) .   I hope you sign up with me today to get creative.

 

Here are my alternatives for this month that I am featuring in video.

PS.  I made a mistake and said the colour “Pear Pizzaz” instead of “Pink Pirouette” just thought I would let you know that I am not colour blind and I do know the difference between Pink and Green but sometimes the alliteration of the names of the colours gets me all tongue tied.  Also, please forgive the guest appearance of Molly and Quinn in this video.  They are indoor kitties and sometimes like to torment their human.

New Items added to the FREE OFFERING

Hi there, just want to drop you a line and let you know some good news.  Stampin’ Up! just released several more items that you can choose for your sale-a-bration item.  You know how it works, purchase $60 of product and receive a free item.  Well, today they have just released several “current catalog” items to be a FREE gift.  The list is a good one and I will share it in just a second, but I want to remind you that the Tin and the glimmer paper are now out of stock so one can’t choose those free items any more.  Also, if one wants to choose these final release products they have to use the code listed here and NOT the code in the catalog.

Happy Shopping

 

Monday Makes – A Balloon Adventure Card

Hi and welcome to the wonderful world of balloons and focal points.  At least that is what I am demonstrating today.  The card today is featuring the stamp set balloon adventures and I used the punch too!  By having the background in a neural colour the punched out balloons and the card stock really do their job by popping.  Check it out.

Monday Makes – Simple Dragonfly Card

Hello and thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate you coming here every week.  For today’s card I am doing another “SIP” card.  For those of you who don’t know, SIP means = stamps, ink and paper.  So another clean and simple card (CAS) I don’t know when we crafters got into abbreviating everything…it has made me ponder on what the English language will evolve into?  I probably shouldn’t write what ever pops into my head but sometimes, you know, it just has to come out and I feel safe with you.  You won’t tease me too much, right?  Ok, want to see the card?

Fabricate Friday – Silver Spoon Box

How’s that for a catchy title?  I thought this little box was so cute.  I was give a little box like this for Christmas and it housed 2 toffee-chocolate squares inside.  The box got mangled as I tried to open it for sizing and so did the chocolates inside (let’s be honest here, I’m not chubby because I eat salad).  Any hoo….hope you like my little cute project.
