Sending Hugs for the Holidays,







Well, Isn’t that special?

During the day, I work in a bank.  And our Christmas Clubs will be dispersed this weekend, just in time for some great holiday shopping from Stampin’ UP!   And Stampin’ UP! is delivering the goods with lots of Sales & Specials for the month of October, for both gifting giving and supplies to make your own!  Make sure you scroll down and read this entire blog post to see all the specials going on.  world-card-making-dayIn celebration of World Card Making Day on October 1st, Stampin’ Up! is offering 25% off on card making essentials for 5 days, from October 1-5!

There are 2 great items on sale that I want to bring to your attention.  One is the Designer Tin Of Cards Project Kit Item #141651.   Regularly priced at $27.00 it is on sale for only $20.25!  This is a great gift for your crafty friends! (Or consider making the cards yourself and giving the cards ready to send along with a book of stamps so your recipient will have cards at the ready to mail out!  How sweet is that?   Think of someone in a nursing home or with limited access to get to stores to buy cards)


It includes all you see above including the cute tin. You will need to supply inks and stamps of your choice or get the  Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set.  The coordinating ink colors are: Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron classic stampin’ pads and Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad.

I know many of you already have the Envelope Punch Board but if you are a new stamper, it’s a tool that I recommend for creating all your own envelopes in any size!  It’s on sale for only $15! (regularly $20)  Don’t let the name fool you – you can create many boxes & 3D items with the Envelope Punch Board!

Here’s a video from Stampin’ Up! showing how the punch board works.

I also love that if you buy a Fast Fuse Adhesive, you’ll get a FREE refill as part of this promotion.  Here’s another video by Stampin’ Up! showing why you need Fast Fuse (especially if you are making boxes with your new Envelope Punch Board!)

Love to Craft? Short on time? Short on supplies? Short on ideas? No problem, we’ve got you covered! Paper Pumpkin is a complete craft kit in a box delivered to your door for less than $20 a month! And if you order now, you’ll pay for October and get November FREE!!! No obligation; you can cancel at any time (but you won’t want to!) Just use promo code BOGO and click this link to order.

Some Things Just Get Better with Age!

Look Who’s Turning 3!   Paper Pumpkin!


Well at the risk of sounding like a Virginia Slim ad, “You’ve come a long way, baby!”  Yes, I remember the very first Paper Pumpkin kit.  It was, well, ok.  It was cute, but nothing too spectacular.  And to be honest for the first year I didn’t subscribe.   But Stampin’ UP! has really stepped up the quality of the kits and the projects in each one.  I love my Paper Pumpkin kits and look forward to them and can’t wait to see what project each month’s kit contains.

This month, March 2016, Paper Pumpkin turns 3.  To celebrate, the kits will arrive in a special edition blue box, and it should be something extraordinary!

I urge you, if you don’t already subscribe, CLICK THIS LINK NOW!  For only $19.95 plus tax, it is really one of the best deals out there, no coupon needed.  When you subscribe by the 10th, you’ll receive the special edition March kit.

What is your favorite day of the month?

One of my favorite days of the month is the day my little red box of fun is in my mailbox.  You know what I mean, my Paper Pumpkin kit.  It’s a little creative escape that I treat myself to each month.  For less than $20 a month, my fun just keeps coming.  Except for this month.  Due to a little snafu on my part, I mistakenly set my subscription to skip a month!  Oh my, what was I thinking?  Clearly I wasn’t.  Well, I put a call into Stampin’ Up! and all is well.  Or at least it will be in a few days.  The folks over at Stampin’ Up! are sending my February Paper Pumpkin to me.  Oh, and I fixed my account to be sure that doesn’t happen again!  So in the meantime, all I can do is:

So, now you can see why I just couldn’t miss a month of my Paper Pumpkin.  And you shouldn’t either.  After all, you deserve a creative escape too!

And now, you can get it on sale, too!  What could be sweeter than that?  A free Sale-A-Bration too!  Yup, that’s right!
