Another Great Year


It’s been another great year, and now it’s time to save those memories. The December 2016 Another Great Year Kit makes it easy! Simply arrange the patterned papers and window sheets just how you want, embellish with washi tape, stickers, and photos. Then, use the rotary stamp and Basic Black Stampin’ Write® Marker to capture your favorite memories for years to come. I posted a video previously showcasing this kit. If you missed it, you can see it HERE.

Not only does this kit include a rotary stamp and a marker, but also for the first time, Stampin’ Up! is making the past kit available early—just in time for the new year! Go grab yours now, and make 2017 another great year! It’s available while supplies last. Please note: there will not be a refill kit, just this full kit with the rotary stamp and marker included. Enjoy! If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber you can order this kit and other past kits and refills.  If you are not a subscriber, what are you waiting for?  Click HERE to sign up today and you will get your first kit in January.  Then once you subscribe you can order the December kit and any others that are still available.  Check them out HERE.

I put the album together and gave my kit to my daughter to document her first year at college. (I have already ordered another kit for me.)  What great memories she will have to treasure! This would be a great little album to put together for a grandparent as well. Most of the time I buy refill kits and use them for projects other than what they were intended. I love the overlays included in this kit and plan to use them on cards. Check out this short video for alternative ideas beyond basic memory keeping—including a banner, card, and a traditional 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.  Don’t forget…there’s only one week left to take advantage of the Year-End Closeouts.  Click on the image below to see what’s available.


Have a wonderful day!

December 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2016! The December 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Another Great Year, makes it easy to document all your memories from the year. Check out this short video to see everything you get in this kit and how to put it together!

This kit makes memory keeping easy and completely customizable. Use the patterned papers, window sheets, stickers, and washi tape to embellish your book. I think I am going to put the album together and give it as a gift to my daughter to document her first year at college. What a great gift!  If scrapbooking isn’t your thing, there is so much you can do with the supplies. There is always alternative ideas you can make using the contents of the kit for other projects.

I love that (for the first time ever) it includes a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker!  This pen not only works for inking your stamps, it is perfect for writing your cards. Have you ever received a card and the inside is smeared?  I have and it made me think about what I use to write with when I send cards.  After all the love that goes in to making my cards, I want to make sure it looks just as nice when someone receives it.  The Stampin’ Write Markers work like a charm and won’t smear! I am sure I will use the rotary stamp that comes in the kit with other projects as well! I always look forward to getting my kit and whether I use it as intended or think “outside the box” and make alternative projects with the contents of my kit, I am always pleased with the outcome.  I love that it has everything I need so I can “grab it and go” when I am travelling or waiting in airports. Speaking of airports…I am off to pick up my daughter today!!!  So excited to have her home from college for 3 weeks!!!!!
