October Paper Pumpkin



Shaker cards and Plaids--what a great combination!  That's what you'll see in the October Paper Pumpkin Kit video shown above.

If you didn't get it . . . but would still like to purchase it, you can get it in the online store beginning 10/23 (while supplies last) when you become a Paper Pumpkin subscriber (or as a current subscriber).  This will be the FULL kit---this kit is in hight demand.  No refills for this kit will be available.
Holiday cards made easy!  Stampin’ Up! created a simple and fun holiday crafting experience that streamlines Christmas prep – Season of Style!

To give you more of what you love, during October and November Stampin’ Up! is offering two straight months of perfectly coordinated Christmas card making and gifting projects. 
Two coordinating kits means that 1) you will have everything you need to complete unique holiday cards and gifts, 2) you will have more creative options, and 3) you can get that handmade holiday touch without the fuss. 
  • The October and November Paper Pumpkin kits coordinate but they also stand alone. You DO NOT need both kits to create a complete project.
  • If you missed signing up for the October kit but would still like to purchase it, you can get it in the online store beginning October 23 (while supplies last) when you become a Paper Pumpkin subscriber (or as a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber).
  • To receive November’s kit, you can subscribe through me at paperpumpkin.com by 11:50 PM (MT) on November 10.
  • NEED GIFT IDEAS FOR THE HOLIDAYS?  Paper Pumpkin kits (month to month or a pre-paid subscription) make fabulous gifts.   
Want to start a Paper Pumpkin monthly subscription to ramp up your creative time?  Include a prepaid 1, 3, 6 or 12 month subscription to your next Stampin’ Up! order.

COMING SOON!  Stampin’ Blends Markers
Customer launch date to be announced – but coming soon!   I got to try these markers personally when I visited Stampin’ Up! last January for my $1 million sales trip.  They are simply wonderful to color with and blend.  
Stampin’ Blends Features:
  • Add just the right amount of color where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each color (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.*
  • Stampin’ Up! has done in-house testing for evaporation and life testing and is really happy with the results.
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting color.
I WANT THEM NOW!  Would you like to be able to purchase the brand new Stampin’ Blends markers before they are released to customers?  Purchase the $99 Starter Kit and join Stampin’ Up! for $99.  You can add the Stampin’ Blends markers to the kit during the demonstrator pre-order period starting today (Pre-order ONLY:  October 1 – 15)!

Christmas Quilt

I'm happy to say the temp has cooled down into the 80's here, so why not start thinking about Christmas.  This is a bundle that I originally wasn't going to get--didn't feel the stamping vibe--but Jill Olsen posted a video using it and that changed my mind.  I was looking for ideas for the Mini SAS on 10/21 and this set turned out to be easier to use than I thought.  The word "quilt" makes it looks like it would have a lot of little pieces to assemble. but Not true!!!

Speaking of the SAS--make sure you RSVP; it's filling up and I wouldn't want anyone to miss out.
Saturday, October 21st @ 9:00 a.m.
$20 or FREE with a $75 purchase
10 cards--2 of each design
All materials provided + envelopes/dimensionals
Bring your snips and adhesive (I'll have refills of SNAIL for purchase)
Raffle bags--as always
IMPORTANT!!!  SAS will be held at Belle Tanis's house  (661-722-3797)
                             40216 Carlton Street, Palmdale (off of Rancho Vista/Brisa Dr.)
                             home is at the end of the cul-de-sac; Ride Sharing is recommended

Fall is Coming--Maybe

Maybe if I stamp Fall cards, the weather will cool down.  It's worth a shot!  These two cards were made using products from the NEW Holiday Catalog.  Enjoy---

Love the Effect

Embossing Paste has become my new favorite thing to use to add dimension to a project.  It's one of those things that you have to give a try.  I believe you learn by doing and the more you use it, the better you get at it.  Think of spreading the paste like buttering toast.  It doesn't take a lot to cover the area.  Dries fast.  Adding color takes just a few drops of ink (mix it in a small plastic cup like you would get for salad dressing at a fast food place--comes with a lid so you can use it again).  It's about $20 for the materials you need---embossing paste, pattern masks, and palette knives.

We played last Thursday night and this is what we did---yes, these ideas are both "cased."
