Paper Pumpkin Mini Album

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Kits are so versatile!  In that monthly box, you’ve got all you need to make the projects included.  But, as a scrapbooker, the May Good Things Grow from March 2018 just begged to be scrapbooked!  So I made several of the suggested projects, then made my own mini album.

MAY GOOD THINGS GROW MINI ALBUM

For the cover, I used the cardboard insert from the Paper Pumpkin Kit and covered it with cardstock in a coordinating color.

PP mini album cover

Then I made the pages for the inside of the mini album from other elements included in the Kit, as well as coordinating cardstock.

PP mini p 2 and 3

PP mini p 4 and 5

PP mini pages

PP mini back cover

The finishing touch was ribbon and twine tied to the ring binders.

While this album is no longer available, each month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit always has lots of great alternate project possibilities!  The April Paper Pumpkin Kit is going to feature, for the first time, Stampin’ Up’s Distinktive Stamps and I cannot wait to see what can be created!  Subscribe by April 10th at https://www.paperpumpkin.com/en-us/sign-up/?demoid=2166089 so you don’t miss out!

Hello Spring!

Hello Spring!

Spring is all around us now in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia.  Southern springs are never boring, though, with snow showers this morning and a forecast high of 75 tomorrow!

So long to Sale-A-Bration 2019

This year’s Sale-A-Bration Items were just fantastic!  I’ve got just a couple of cards I’d like to share before we say our final farewells, though, to give you some ideas for how to use those fabulous Sale-A-Bration Items you earned!  The Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper was one of my absolute favorites.

SAB 19 card 2

SAB 19 card 1

Good news!!  The Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder will be returning in the new 2019-2010 Annual Catalog.  Yay!  Here’s a card I created using it with Vellum Cardstock, then coloring with Stampin’ Blends.

Country Floral Vellum

I created the frame using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (love!) on Coastal Cabana Cardstock.  The Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon was just the right finishing touch.

At a party last week, we made butterfly projects using the Country Floral Embossing Folder, the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper, and the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set on a Whisper White Note Card and a Mini Pizza Box.  The ladies had great fun making them!

butterfly card and box

FAREWELL TO THE 2017-2019 InColors

At our Crafting on the Hill April Team Meeting, we created three cards using the retiring 2017-2019 InColors Assortment. Stampin’ Up! has a great variety of punches that coordinate with lots of stamp sets, and we used several for this project. The daisy from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Berry Burst, then punched using the coordinating Daisy Punch.  We also used the Detailed Trio Punch, the Pretty Label Punch and the Leaf Punch. Shop for these retiring InColors before they’re gone!  Find all of these products on my online store at http://www.craftingonthehill.stampinup.net. 

retiring colors 17 to 19PAPER PUMPKIN IS GOING TO BE “DISTINKTIVE” IN APRIL!!

So what are “Distinktive” Stamps and what makes them special?

  1. Distinktive stamps give you photo-realistic images with just one stamp. They have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step.
  2. These stamps are available only from Stampin’ Up! and are made using a patent-pending process.
  3. Distinktive stamps are available in red rubber and photopolymer; Paper Pumpkin’s April kit includes photopolymer stamps.
  4. Shop Distinktive stamps in my online store by searching “Distinktive,” or look for the Distinktive icon in Stampin’ Up! catalogs.

Sale-A-Brate with Country Floral

Sale-A-Brate with Country Floral

SPRING is finally here and, naturally, it puts one to thinking about sunshine and flowers!  The Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is the perfect touch for spring projects and it’s a FREE Sale-A-Bration Item with any $50 Product Order.

COUNTRY FLORAL DYNAMIC TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER

That’s right.  It’s FREE with any $50 Product Order!  This can help you make such beautiful projects, and it’s so versatile!

 

For this card, I used Powder Pink Stampin’ Ink and Cardstock.  I inked the Country Floral Embossing Folder with Powder Pink Stampin’ Ink, then placed a piece Whisper White Cardstock in the Folder and ran it through the Big Shot.  I loved the subtle elegance!  I ran a piece of the Powder Pink Cardstock through the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the base, then punched out a piece of it from the center using the Story Label Punch, a Sale-A-Bration Coordination Item available for purchase.  The sentiment is from the Part of My Story Cling Stamp Set  and is also a Sale-A-Bration Item FREE with any $50 Product Order.

Country Floral EF pink

I just couldn’t resist pairing this folder with a piece of the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper Sale-A-Bration Item.  I used a piece of Lemon Lime Twist (retiring soon!) Cardstock and the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack for the ribbon.  An elegant touch!

Country Floral EF painted seasons dsp

I love working with Stampin’ Up’s Vellum Cardstock, so I ran it through the Country Floral Embossing Folder, then used Stampin’ Blends to add touches of color to accent some of the elements.  The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set found in the Occasions Catalog. The Calypso Coral Twine is from a past Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Finally FALL!!

Fall weather is frequently a long time coming here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia.  But when it does arrive, oh how spectacular!  We’re finally getting our first taste of cooler (below 90 degrees!) temps and it’s wonderfully refreshing.

One of the things I most enjoy about cooler weather is sipping on hot tea.  Guess it’s my British and Scottish heritage, but hot tea has been a favorite my entire adult life.  I even have an small collection of lovely china tea pots that just make me smile.  So, naturally, one of my favorite suites is the Tea Room Suite.

TEA ROOM SUITE CARDS

Recently I held a Tea Room Suite product based class, and the ladies really enjoyed creating with this beautiful Suite.

Tea Room square

This 4 x 4 card was made using Coastal Cabana Cardstock and Stampin’ Ink.  The flower was stamped in Calypso Coral.

 

Tea Room Card 3

I really wanted to feature the Tea Room Designer Series Paper in this card.  The Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack is the perfect accent!

Tea Room Card 2

The Tea Room Stamp sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana and the tea cup is stamped in Calypso Coral.

Tea Room Card 1

The Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder coordinates so perfectly with this Suite.

Tea Room Card 4

This was an alternate idea I made using the Colored Doilies.

This is one of the Bundles in the Annual Catalog, which means that you can save 10% on this set that’s already coordinated for you with the stamps and beautiful dies!  Item 148410

Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper

The coordinating Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper coordinates perfectly!   Item 146894

There are even adorable Copper Tea Tins that coordinate.  Image ©Stampin’ Up! 2018.   Item 147034

Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack Item 146893

Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack

The coordinated Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack made it quick and easy to coordinate even more gorgeous cards!  A bargain at only $10!

Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper

August started off as one of the coolest on record here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia, which was quite appropriate, since the Christmas Card Club kicked off on August 2nd!   We made 4 cards and all the ladies were delighted to get a head start on their Christmas cards.

Under the Mistletoe Christmas Cards

We created 2 each of the 4 designs using both Under the Mistletoe and Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Papers.

christmas card 0818 tree

This card was actually created using the Sheet Music Background Stamp.  The Stamparatus is an absolute life saver for stamping Background Stamps and really helped in creating the background for the Lovely as a Tree Stamp stamped in Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Ink.  It’s mounted on Cherry Cobbler cardstock, so to complete the vintage feel I used a strip of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and a touch of Vintage Lace.  Elegant and easy!

Christmas club 0818 pinecones

I mounted a strip of one of the plaids from the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.  The pine bough and pine cones are from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set and the coordinated Pretty Pines Thinlits.  The pine bough is stamped in Shaded Spruce.

Christmas club 0818 squares

This card really shows off the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper!  Mounted on Early Espresso cardstock with a Copper Foil strip and a couple of sprigs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

christmas club 0818 Bethlehem

The first time I saw this pattern in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, I knew it would be a perfect starry night background.  Combined here with the Night in Bethlehem Stamp and coordinated Thinlits set using Night of Navy, a favorite neutral.  The Stamparatus was used to stamp the sentiment and made placement so much easier!

36857633_1205997072875321_6451802041286131712_n
