Paper Pumpkin Valentines

Yesterday I finally opened my January My Paper Pumpkin Kit and made tons of valentines!! I used the heart framelit and cut out a large heart for each of them and made them into pockets.

You’re So Sweet

I had fun with everyone yesterday who came over to work on My Paper Pumpkin Projects!  Several ladies brought over a stack of their unopened boxes & others helped my with my stack.  We all loved how different the projects were… cards, boxes, journals, Candy holders…  FUN STUFF!

See the sparkle?  That’s from a new product I just love, called Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  Just brush it on.  It dries immediately & the glitter stays put!

One final tip:  To mail these cute honeycombs, leave them closed with a note for the recipient to “peel & open”.  That way they don’t arrived squished!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Pumpkin from June

Last night I felt like making some cards, but didn’t want to use my brain.  Paper Pumpkin to the rescue!  The kits have everything cut out & scored.  June Paper PumpkinI love the flower stamp that came with it!!!  I used it in this next card.  Got a little more creative after I got started.

The kits come with these bright envelope liners, too!  You can see it on the right side.  I sent this one to a friend and forgot to put tissue over the button.  I have to call her to see how it arrived…

A Real Hero

One of my patients, a member of the 100th Infantry Battalion, received the French Legion of Honor last week, France’s highest decoration!! What a fine man he is!! Wish I could share details about him, but you know, confidentiality & all that…

I dug through my Paper Pumpkin stuff & came up with the perfect card for him!

Isn’t this perfect? IMG_8007
The sentiment comes from Starburst Sayings. Here’s what it said on the inside:

A Big Thank You to all our military!!! We’re so proud & grateful to all of you for your many sacrifices!

Shakin' Up! Paper Pumpkin

We have our monthly Paper Pumpkin Party this Thursday where PP Subscribers get together to make our kits. I always like to try to come up with some different ways to make the cards.IMG_8028

I love the shaker card, don’t you?! And they’ve prepped everything for us to make it so simple!

I came up with this next card by following Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.mojo381

I’ve used Washi Tape in the background. The Happy Birthday stamp was part of the Paper Pumpkin Kit. I’m entering these 2 cards in the Paper Pumpkin Challenge!

We’d love to have you join us at our Paper Pumpkin Party! We’re meeting Thursday, January 29 after work (~5pm) in Wailuku. Let me know if you want to check it out & I’ll bring some extras!

Santa Box for Paper Pumpkin

Tonight we have our monthly get-together to make our Paper Pumpkin kits!  I always try to come up with some creative ideas for the group.

The October kit comes with some sturdy triangle boxes, so I turned one into a Santa!

IMG_6597Isn’t he cute?!!  I had to scramble around to find someone to borrow the mustache from (Kim who lives next door!  Thanks, Kim!).  Now I guess I’ll have to buy it!  Found the original Santa idea on Pinterest (made by Sondra Jumper, but couldn’t find her blog).

By the way, see the beautiful doily under Santa?!  A very talented SU demonstrator from Arizona, Sherry Beeson, made that for me, & I haven’t even met her!  You meet the nicest people through Stampin’ Up!

If you’re interested in seeing what we’re doing tonight, feel free to drop by!  We meet in Kahului, so just email me for directions.  5pm – 7pm.  We’d love to have you join our Paper Pumpkin group!!  Sign up here!!

I’ve entered my box in My Pumpkin Challenge!

Paper Pumpkin Treat Bags!

This is my favorite Paper Pumpkin kit so far!!

IMG_6465 

I changed this one up a bit to use at my Thanksgiving table!  Found the idea on Glenda Calkin’s blog.  Then I added a button closure so that all the goodies won’t fall out!

IMG_6467I also made a few cards with the kit.  Found this idea on Katy McGloin’s blog.  Only thing I changed was to use my new Note Tag Punch.

IMG_6469I loved this card by Michelle Quinno, but didn’t have the Dots & Stripes Mask.  So, guess where my polka dots came from?!  There’s this leftover circle in the Chalk Talk Stamp Set!  I knew I’d find a use for it!

IMG_6471

Last, but not least, I love this card made by Connie Babbert!  So I made my own version here:
