Secondly, I offer classes in creative home-keeping including sewing, cooking and home decor. I also offer beautiful rental items for events, such as table-cloths, mercury glass votives, vases and centerpieces, silver candelabras, crystal chandelier and Opulent Treasures serving pieces.

Thank you to my Stampin' Up! hostess club

Your orders are in.  

Fab Friday Challenge

In the past, I have not entered very many challenges.  However, I am determined to do better.....

I used the DSP Quatrefancy as my inspiration.  I CASE'd a 3d framed art from Mary Brown at Stamper Camper, using all things Mosiac Madness - punch, embossing folder and stamp.  This is for the Fab Friday 21 Challenge

Cards from June classes

These are the card projects that were CASE'd for my June classes.  There are so many talented Stampin Up Demonstrators who provide ideas for me to copy.
Sparkle from Irridescent Diamonds.  Stamps are Swallowtail and Serene Silhouettes and Pappillon Potpouri 

Window sheet from Quatrefancy DSP

Mosiac Madness stamp

The rose is made from the new SU clay and molds.  

Starting a Paper Crafting Swap Group

After a visit from a friend and retired extension agent, I have the motivation to start a paper-crafting swap group. Is anyone interested? We would meet once a month and exchange projects based on a theme....color, stamp, technique, etc. I would like to start in September, so that allows enough time to recruit folks and get our first swap done. Please share this with other paper crafters you know. If we have six people, then we could host the swap twice during the year. It would be at least a 6 month commitment. Let me know of your interest and available times.

This would be in addition to my hostess clubs and classes, but there would be no fees.  The costs would be the supplies for the exchange projects and refreshments when you host.

She Thought She Could...So She Did

I was hired as an event planner for a high school graduation party....Here are some of the shots, where Stampin' Up Products were used.

Note the banner that says graduate made with the pennant punch and some retired letter stamps. 

Window Frames Collection used to cut the page printed in MDS

The Designer Rosette Bigs XL die cuts on the wall. 

The pennant punch banner tops the Stampin' Up! Feels Good stamp cut in vinyl 
using MDS and an electronic cutter.

Paper Pumpkin

Sweep away the mundane-your creativity carriage awaits!
I'm Paper Pumpkin . . .
I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I'll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.
I come in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside:
All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!
Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone (even you) can enjoy!
Get Started
It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program by visiting www.mypaperpumpkin.com and click Get it. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!
The very first Paper Pumpkin will arrive on your doorstep starting in March-if you sign up before March 10.
Of course, you'll want to know more. So here's the nitty gritty:
  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you and your customer a 30-minute creativity escape.
  • We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.  
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on May 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we'll send your first kit around June 15th.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!) 
  • There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
  • Starting in early March, we'll offer a Try-It kit if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month.
Here's How You Order
Sign up for your monthly Paper Pumpkin by visitingwww.mypaperpumpkin.com and click Get it.
Starting in early March, you can try Paper Pumpkin for one month by visiting my online store.
A Free Gift in Your Very First Kit
The Welcome Kit is the very first Paper Pumpkin you will receive in your first month of membership. The Welcome Kit includes a free gift-a clear acrylic block!
Questions? We've Got Answers
Why are we offering Paper Pumpkin?
Paper Pumpkin is the perfect introduction to Stampin' Up! We designed it for crafters that want to create a project each month, but aren't quite ready to build a stamp collection (yet).
How does shipping work with Paper Pumpkin?
Your Paper Pumpkin will be automatically shipped to you each month (so fun!). Because we are auto shipping these, the pricing structure is slightly different from our other Stampin' Up! products.
