I absolutely love the March Paper Pumpkin kit! Even if you do not want or need the “bunny bags” there is so much you can do with the contents of the kit! I ordered extra refill kits as I am using the bunny bags for Easter table favors and need 25 (Big Family!). After I made all my bunny bags (which are so stinkin’ cute!) I had 2 bags left so I made this little gift.
I am going to visit my friend after Easter and she loves to plant flowers and garden. This bag makes a nice little hostess gift and easily holds 6 or more seed packets. I used the Gift from the Garden stamp set and Basic Gray archival ink to stamp the image and sentiment. I folded the “ears” in and used the twine, banner, stamp, and clothespin from the kit. I finished it off with a flower from Grateful Bunch stamp set. I love that this stamp set coordinates with Blossom Bunch Punch. I just added a rhinestone and attached it to the clothespin with a glue dot.
I think I need to order another refill kit as I am sure I will find many more uses for these bags. Paper Pumpkin Subscribers can order refills for just $8! That is unbelievable! This month you get 9 of these bags plus 9 3×3 note cards and envelopes and all the embellishments to decorate them. The refill has everything except the stamp set and ink spot. What a deal! I really like the cards but I am not using them as intended with the kit…check back again and I will show you what else I made.
If you want one of these refill kits you need to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin. You won’t be disappointed…April’s kit promises to be Extra Special! Not only is it designed by Stampin’ Up!’s CEO, Sara Douglass, but it includes a FREE gift!! Paper Pumpkin is celebrating it’s 4th year. I’ve been subscribing for 3 years and it just gets better and better! I think it is well worth $20 a month (price includes shipping). I use the stamp sets long after the contents of the kit are all gone! If you are new to stamping or on a budget this is a great way to get a variety of stamps and ink…you get 1 or more ink spots each month and they guarantee they won’t repeat colors within a year! I store my ink spots in a paper pumpkin box and take them with me when I travel for some crafting fun on the go.
I am mailing out my Paper Pumpkin thank you kits this week! I appreciate everyone who subscribes through me and hope you enjoy your “goodie bag”. If you’d like to receive my party favor goodie bag subscribe by April 10th!

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for November 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month our projects feature items that are considered 3D, Home Décor or Gift Sets. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
A Desk Calendar
I made 50 of these desk calendars for the World Card Making Day swap in Atlanta last weekend. I had so much fun swapping and wanted to give something they could enjoy all year long to remind them of our “Happy Day”. If you follow my blog you know that I sell my cards at a local shop to help raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. If you would like more information about these desk calendars please email me (email@example.com). These would make great gifts for teachers, hairdressers, coworkers, or just about anyone. Just a little reminder to make each day a “Happy Day”.
Here’s a close up of each of the colors.
I hope you have a Happy Day!

Welcome to my ABC’s with DSP series. Today I am featuring the zigzag design from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper Stack.
I am heading to Atlanta this afternoon to see my daughter, attend World Card Making Day with fellow demonstrators, and go to Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage Convention! I am so excited!!! I have been a busy beaver making cards to swap, a 3D project to share, as well as a shoebox swap! I will be sharing my projects as well as all the ones I make and receive at these events. Lots of inspiration ahead!
Today’s card is for my daughter’s birthday. I am thrilled to be able to deliver it in person to her when I get to Atlanta. We are going out to dinner to one of her favorite places, The Cheesecake Factory! YUM!! I made her a double Z fold card (for the last letter in this alphabet series). I CASEd the Z fold design from Susy Wood.
You can see the two Z’s when you look down on the card.
This card is not as hard as it looks to make. It is actually rather easy! I started with a piece of 4 1/4 x 11 Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I scored it at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″. I cut another strip of Flirty Flamingo at 1 1/2 x 11″ and scored it the same as the card base. (You just flip it so that it folds the opposite of the card base.) I attached a piece of 4 x 2 1/2″ DSP to the front. I stamped the Happy Birthday in Black Momento Ink on a piece of Whisper White that measures 3 x 2 3/4″ and adhered it to a layer of Flirty Flamingo 1/4″ larger (3 1/4 x 3). This is adhered to a layer of Basic Black that measures 3 1/2 x 3 1/4. Next I stamped the flowers from the Grateful Bunch stamp set using Black Momento ink and punched the flowers using the Blossom Punch. I added Rhinestones for some bling, attached the flowers with Glue Dots, and tied a piece of Organza ribbon in a knot. Here’a another view with the card open.
Stamp Sets: Stylized Birthday, Grateful Bunch Ink: Black Momento Papers: Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White, Basic Black, Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper Tools & Accessories: Rhinstone Basic Jewels, Blossom Bunch Punch, Organza Ribbon
