This is one of my favorites!!  Remember the Washi Tape Punch?!  Glad I still have mine!  These remind me of some bell bottoms I had in 8th grade that I sewed floral fabric into the bottom outside legs!  Groovy!

My nephew, Abe sent me this pretty card he made using My Paper Pumpkin.  Thanks, Abe!  Did you know Abe & I were “famous” this week?!!  We were featured in Stampin’ Up! Succeed Weekly!

Paper Pumpkin in Unexpected Places

Several years ago, demonstrator Cheryl Hamilton brought some stamping supplies over to her mother-in-law’s house so the family could have some fun crafting. Her mother-in-law wasn’t interested and the supplies sat on the table for a few days until her nephew came to visit. Cheryl asked Abe, who has Down syndrome, if he’d like to make a card from her Paper Pumpkin kit. He dove right in and he didn’t stop until the entire kit was complete! He’s been hooked on Paper Pumpkin ever since.
His mom, Vicki, shares that, “Abe loves art and has always liked art classes. Because he is challenged in the area of fine motor skills, he would often get discouraged with his results. But when he started getting Paper Pumpkin, he was so proud of the great cards and crafts he could turn out! Paper Pumpkin is so foolproof and the results are guaranteed to be beautiful. So, he feels so successful and can’t wait to get the next box!”
Cheryl says an unexpected bonus is she’s grown closer to her nephew because of Paper Pumpkin even though she lives in Hawaii and he in New Mexico. They send pictures and comments to each other on Facebook every month after the new kit comes out. She’s had some of her fellow demonstrators send him cards for his birthday, as well. What did he have to say about that? Pretty much what we all think: “It does make my heart feel so happy to get cards in the mail.”

Don’t you love it?!!  I think Abe should be the Paper Pumpkin Spokesperson!!  Speaking of Paper Pumpkin, I have a new orange box on the table that’s been calling my name…
