Paper Pumpkin September 2018

Check out this video and see how easy it is to make some adorable treats for Halloween!  You won't be able to get this

There are two ways to sign up for Paper Pumpkin.  One is a month-to-month.  You can skip for a month or cancel at any time. 

The other way is to order on a regular customer order as prepaid subscription.  You can get a one, three, six or twelve month subscription.  After you place the order, you will receive a code.  You will then go to and enter your code.  It will show how many month you have remaining.

You need to sign up before the 10th of each month.  You'll get a kit shortly after and will then have just about everything you need to complete the project.  I take them to do on my lunch hour sometimes.  All I add is scissors and adhesive.  Once you see these kits, you will thank me for your crafty box of goodness each month! 

Here is the ordering information:  PAPER PUMPKIN

Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder

This was one of the first things that caught my eye in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!  It's so pretty!  And how can you go wrong with such an inexpensive item that gives such a WOW factor!  I've used it several times as you can see below.  I love it in Gray Granite with Frost White Shimmer Paint!  I plan on using it again soon with another color.  Which color do you think I should try?

Ok, don't laugh, but the first photo shows how I stamped too far up with the flowers in Country Home.  I originally wanted to put the bow to the side, and then decided to cover up the white space with the bow.   What do you think?  There's almost always a fix for mistakes in stamping!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you had a great weekend!  Mine was pretty busy.  My son moved and I was on kid duty from Saturday at noon until Sunday at 6 p.m.  I love them dearly and they are great kids, but I'm beat!  I slept like a log last night.

I wanted to quickly let you know that Stampin' Up! updated the Clearance Rack.  They have some Fast Fuse and refills for those of you who love it!  I'm definitely getting some.  There are lots of other great products in there too, just don't wait too long or you'll miss out!  Click on the red banner below to go straight to the deals!

Brusho Dandelions

I truly love this Dandelion stamp set called Dandelion Wishes!  I decided it needed to be mixed with a Brusho background and here is the result.  I have also been dying to use this yummy new color called Mango Melody, so I went for a red, gamboge (orange) and yellow mix.  I think it matches pretty well.  What to do you think?

I started out by stamping the dandelion in Stazon on watercolor paper.  I let it dry for a bit and then started tapping out the Brusho crystals on the paper.  Then I spritzed with water.  I really love the different looks you can get with Brushos!  You can paint with them or use them like I did here.  I ended up using a sentiment from Happy Birthday, Gorgeous, and the die cut from Merry Christmas, Everyone! 

Watch the Stampin' Up! Video on how to use Brushos below.

Tin Tile love

I must confess, I buy every embossing folder that Stampin' Up! comes out with. They are very affordable and they give a wow factor to a card.  I bought the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalog which went live yesterday.  I didn't buy the Galvanized Paper.  It's on my list, but didn't make the cut this time.  This folder is gorgeous in any color!

I keep seeing cards posted using the galvanized paper and the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  I decided to see how the Frost White Shimmer Paint would work.  I used a Stampin' Sponge and dabbed it on. Here is the outcome.  I used two different sets on this.  I needed a sympathy so I used the Thinking Of You from Rooted in Nature.  I decided to frame it with the Swirly Frames photo polymer set.  This is a versatile set!  I can't wait to play more with it.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please take a moment to let me know what you think.  I love reading your comments.  Let me know if you have questions.  You can find any of the products in my online store (click on flower to the right to shop or browse).
