Bold, Vibrant, and Artistic-With Just a Little Bit of Sass
If you haven’t tried Paper Pumpkin now is the perfect time!
Because Stampin’ Up! has turned the creative control of our April kit over to our CEO, Sara Douglass!
The end result is stunning! Her style is, “bold, vibrant, and artistic-with a little bit of sass,” which is exactly how she described the kit. Sara designed this kit so you can discover creativity through the eyes of our CEO while having an experience that is uniquely YOU! Get ready to embrace your inner artist and skip to the fun with this special kit!
As if a kit designed by Sara is not enough reason to sign up, there’s more!
She’s including a FREE gift inside every April box! It’s a surprise, but you won’t want to miss it!
Just for fun, I sent out a few things to my downline, the Maui Big Shots! Their assignment was to make something using these supplies:
The paper was from Serene Scenery DSP Stack. They also used White Perfect Accents, Mini Paper Clips Combo Pack, & a circle from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. It’s amazing how different all the cards turned out!!
I have a very creative & fun team & we love getting together to stamp & share ideas! I wish I would have taken a photo of the inside of Helen’s card…a huge bug-eating spider! Beth should get extra credit because it looks like she’s the only one to use her paper clip!
Here’s what I came up with:
I paired Crumb Cake with Dapper Denim & added Crushed Curry & Cajun Craze. The sentiment is from Layering Love.
Anyone interested in joining my team & becoming a “Maui Big Shot!” let me know! If you sign up before this month ends, you’ll receive 2 FREE STAMP SETS OF YOUR CHOICE! Most sign up to get the 20 – 25% discount. But there are so many more benefits! Friends, fun, & getting creative!
Leave us a comment about our cards! I think they did a great job & love how different they all are!

Only 3 more weeks of Sale-A-Bration! Sigh. Stampin’ Up! added 3 new Sale-A-Bration items recently, and I’m using the gorgeous glimmer paper in my card.
I recently purchased the set, Layering Love. What a great set!! See my supply list at the bottom for card ingredients.
Hi everyone! I’m taking over the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Blog today where I get to tell you about myself!
I was raised in Hawaii (my dad was a minister who worked with servicemen & women on Oahu) and love the beach, hiking, and all the local culture & food! I became a Pediatric Nurse, starting in Honolulu, then moving to Colorado because I’d never seen snow. That was quite an experience: learning to dress for cold weather, drive on icy roads, & to ski- which I love! Met my husband, Pat, when he was a surgical resident at Denver Children’s. We ended up on Maui about 30 years ago, where we raised our 2 daughters, Jenny & Malia.
Jenny got married a few months ago & she’s a nurse on a trauma unit in Texas. Malia graduated from UT, Austin, and will soon be heading to Syracuse, NY to work with refugees.
Oh, can’t forget my pride & joy, Swiffer!
I’ve always enjoyed crafting! I first got into stamping when Jenny was in preschool. Once a week, my friend, Wendy, & I would drop the kids off then head over to her house for a morning of stamping fun! I remember getting so excited when I discovered you could stamp with different colors. Everything was 1 layer back then. But just like skiing on the Bunny Hill is exciting when you start out, every card we made was exciting & fun!
I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for about 6 years now & I just love it! Being creative is fun & relaxing, but it’s the friendships I’ve made that have been an unexpected bonus! I’ve been a part of the SSINK Design Team since last year. It’s a huge challenge for me and quite an honor. Everyone on the team has been so encouraging and helpful!
I’m not sure how to describe my style. My favorite type of card is a “Fun Fold”. I’ll show you a few that I’ve made:
Before I go, here’s my latest project. I was inspired by these new stamps I found at the Post Office!
Matched up the cardstock with the stamps: So Saffron, Mint Macaron, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, Early Espresso, & Chocolate Chip, and reached for the Cool Treats Suite!
Love is in the air today, which you’ll see as you hop along with the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration team! You’re sure to get some great ideas & inspiration from these talented ladies. I feel very fortunate (and challenged!) to be a part of this group!
I want to show you all what we’ll be doing in my February Clubs! A set of notecards featuring Lift Me Up Stamp Set and the coordinating Designer Series Paper, Carried Away. This paper just happens to be FREE with any $50 order during Sale-A-Bration (going through March 31st). I saw this idea about a year ago from Mickey Roberts, but I can’t find the exact link…
Doesn’t this make a cute set!! Can’t wait until my club members see this!

We’re going to package them in these cute little tins. They don’t ship to Hawaii, but I HAD to have them!! Thanks to my brother, Gary, who lugged the big box on the plane last time when he flew over to see me & Mom. Shipping to Hawaii. You’d think it was another country! But that’s a whole other story…
Want to make one of these??! Come to club this month! 2 dates to choose from: Saturday, Feb. 11th at 2 pm or Sunday, Feb. 12th at 1 pm at my house in Haiku. To try it out, just place a $25 order that day! I’m prepping 3 extra, so hurry to reserve your spot!
