Paper Pumpkin Steps Up!

I was so pleased with my Paper Pumpkin box this month!!  Stampin’ Up! has really stepped things up! PP Happy Bag

The box contained 5 heavy bags to decorate as we liked.  The letters & stamps were included and I just added punches to the bottom. PP Enjoy PP Love U Bag

The stamps (stripes & dots) were different…I think they were the polymer type.  They stick amazingly well to the clear block!!  No chance of them falling off! PP Smile Bag

Here’s my last (& favorite) one: PP Aloha Bag

Don’t you love it?!  Got the hula girl idea from Sandy Hancock.

Here’s the punches I used:

Hair:  Round Tab XL

Head:  1″ circle

Arms:  1 1/4″ circle

Skirt:  1 3/8″ circle…fringed

Flowers:  Itty Bitty Shapes & 1/4″ circle from the owl punch Hula Girl

I’ve added my bags to My Paper Pumpkin Challenge!

Aloha!!  Have a great day!


Valentine Banners

Last night the Maui Stampers demonstrators met to brainstorm about our goals for the new year.  It ended up with a night of eating, talking story, random MDS ideas/tutorials, lots of ideas & support.  I think the best thing I’ve gained from being a SU demo is the wonderful friendships!

One thing I got inspired about last night is to participate in some challenges!

I’ve combined  2 challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown.

These cards use my new banner framelits, Language of Love (from the new mini catalog), Fabulous Phrases.

Which one do you like best??  I can’t decide.  One thing I do know, is that I’ll be using a lot of that cute set, Language of Love (133077 clear)!! 

I’m having an Open House on Sunday, Jan. 26 from 1-3pm.  One of the make-n-takes is sure to be a Valentine’s Day card.  More information to follow…
