Paper Pumpkin Video…August 2017

I got my Paper Pumpkin just before I had to leave to bring my daughter back to college. Perfect timing as I love to bring my kit with me when I travel! Everything is included which makes it easy to create “on the go”! Considering my van is packed full of everything my daughter could possibly need for the next year, it’s about all the room that was left!


This month’s kit has 8 full size cards and a great stamp set that works for different occasions.  Check out this video to see the contents and intended projects.

I love to give a set of cards as a gift and really appreciate the beautiful gift box included in this kit. Now I just have to decide who gets this box with their cards.

Happy Mail

Welcome to my weekend showcase! Today I am showcasing some cards I received from others over the last few weeks.  My heart skips a beat when I get the mail and see a card addressed to me! I love “Happy Mail”!


This card by Colleen is just stunning!  I am going to have to have her show me how she did such beautiful blending with her sponging.  After looking at this I need to practice more! She also used the masking technique. I like how the stamped images stand out against the background.


This sweet surprise was tucked inside Kathy’s card swap card with a little note thanking me for doing the card swap…so unexpected.  (I really enjoyed doing the card swap and getting to showcase everyone’s amazing talent!)  I love the custom envelope Kathy made and really like how she chose not to color everything which makes what she did color stand out!


I have never met Susan but she follows my blog and when she read it was my birthday she sent me this beautiful card.  I was so touched! Susan’s envelope caught my attention immediately!  I love how she stamped the back of the envelope with this stamp.  Did you know Stampin’ Up! sells this stamp? It is a single wood-mount stamp (item # 143573).  It is not in the catalog but is available to purchase online.  Join the movement to bring birthdays back—send handcrafted birthday cards to all your friends and family, and stamp the card and/or envelope with this trending hashtag to let them know they’re part of something cool! Click HERE to view and find out how the movement got started.


Anyone who purchases this stamp through my online store will receive a birthday card kit from me to get you started making and sending birthday cards.  Birthdays are special! Wouldn’t you rather get/give a handmade birthday card in the mail vs. a post on social media?

Let’s share some happy mail stories! Leave me a comment about some happy mail you sent or received.  I will pick a random winner to send some happy mail to!

Have a wonderful day!
