Share Kindness with A Little Smile

Paper Pumpkin - June 2019

Paper Pumpkin and Stampin’ Up! are all about sharing kindness through creativity. And as dedicated as we are to making a difference with our papercrafting, sometimes we just don’t have a card on hand when we need it most. Enter June’s Paper Pumpkin kit. It helps subscribers share acts of kindness whenever inspiration strikes—and in a fun and easy way. See how we used the June kit to spread kindness and get a peek at the design in this exclusive video.

About the June Kit

The June kit makes it easy for subscribers to scatter sunshine this summer—whenever, with whomever. Not only do we give you 16 fun-sized, beach-themed cards and envelopes, but we also provide you with an exclusive carrying case so you’ll always have your cards on hand to share wherever you go. And don’t forget the exclusive stamp set and ink spot that completes every Paper Pumpkin kit!

Coordinating colors: Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive

  • Subscribers must have an active subscription by June 10, 2019 in order to receive the June kit.

Stampin’ News…April 2019

Stampin’ Up! released some important news today. Grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and read all about it!  There’s a lot to absorb!

Retiring Product Lists Coming Soon

On April 15th at 1:00 pm the retirement list for the occasions and annual catalogs will be posted on the website.. These last-chance products will be available until June 3 or while supplies last only, so get your favorite items before they’re gone! We know that 2017-2019 In Colors are retiring for sure. In the past these items have sold out fast so if you need cardstock or ink refills for these In Colors get them now before it’s too late!2017-2019 In Colors Click HERE to shop retiring In Colors

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

If you have the Stampin’ Trimmer, you will want to grab replacement blades right away. Because of on-going issues with the manufacturer, the trimmer, replacement blades and mats, will be discontinued. Right now you can order 3 sets of replacement blades per order. Starting April 15th, this number will increase to 6. Over the next few months, there will be small batches of inventory arriving and it’s anticipated to be depleted rapidly. Click on the images below to get them while you can! 

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

Stampin’ Up! is changing its die cutting and dry embossing lines. The new dies and folders will continue to work with the die-cutting machine we currently carry but in the 2019-20 catalog there will not be a die-cutting machine. I expect that one will be announced at some point during the year. After extensive research,
demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, Stampin’ Up! decided to move in a new direction and set the foundation for a greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity. One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, they are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process.

Upcoming Pricing Changes

The new annual catalog will debut in June and I want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes.  While these increases are minimal and are mainly cardstock and envelopes, I want you to have the option to purchase these products now before the price increase. Click HERE for a complete list of individual product price increases in the upcoming 2019–2020 annual catalog.

Last Chance to get the Exclusive Paper Pumpkin Distinktive Kit!

Paper Pumpkin Distinktive Stamp Kit

Paper Pumpkin likes to surprise us with innovative kit products from time to time, and in April, we have something fun and new: an exclusive stamp set that includes Distinktive® images! The Distinktive stamped images are photo-realistic, crisp, and clear. This one is sure to leave an “impression” on you! Click HERE to subscribe by April 10th to receive this Distinktive Paper Pumpkin Kit!

More about the April Kit

  • Makes 9 cards (3 cards of 3 designs)
  • Includes an adorable gift box—in addition to your 9 cards
  • Coordinating colors: Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Mint Macaron, and So Saffron.

Check out this video to learn more about Distinktive Stamps.

*As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 and the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States. Why the price change? Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price.

WOW! That was a lot of news.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  I will have more to share with you after Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention this weekend!  I can’t wait to see the new In Colors and will be sharing what’s new with you!! Check back tomorrow for the Pals Monthly Blog Hop!  Lots of inspiration!

Have a great day!

Stampin Up Back in Plaid Paper Pumpkin kit - to order visit juststampin.com

You can use these kits to make more than just holiday cards and gifts! I love to use the contents and make alternative projects like the card below!

Stampin Up This Little Piggy and Paper Pumpkin Frights & Delights alternative birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp www.juststampin.com

This card reminds me of one of my favorite childhood books/movies, Charlotte’s Web. I saw this idea by Lisa Fast on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook page. I knew this would be the perfect birthday card for my pig loving friend, Susan Itell. Lisa didn’t give any directions so I played around, changed it up a bit, and added the cute spider trinket from the Toil & Trouble Suite in the Holiday Catalog. Here’s the card details:

  • Line the opening of the treat bag at 4 1/2 and cut off the seam on the bottom.
  • Cut a 3 3/4 x 4 1/2 piece of whisper white cardstock and stamp sentiment. Slide the cardstock into the bag sleeve.  It fits snuggly.
  • Adhere the sleeve to a piece of 4 x 4 3/4 Black cardstock.
  • Adhere the black layer to a Blushing Bride card base cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Stamp the pig on Shimmery White cardstock and color with ink and an Aqua Painter.  Trim around the pig with Paper Snips and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add Baker’s Twine from the Paper Pumpkin kit around the top of the card and tie a bow. Attach the spider trinket with silver thread and a glue dot.

As Charlotte would say, “Teriffic!”

Here’s a few ideas from Pinterest and Facebook I shared at my Paper Pumpkin get together using the Back in Plaid kit. You can emboss the stocking (iron first and spray with hair spray), make baby booties (roll the cuff) or a winter cap (cut the heel off and add a candy treat inside).

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin Back and Plaid embossed Christmas Stocking - Jeanie Stark StampinUp www.juststampin.com

Last year I filled the stockings with gift cards for friends and family.  It makes a quick & easy gift presentation.  I bought extra kits to use the stockings for table favors for our Christmas Eve dinner this year. I’m going to fill them with candy and questions.  It’s fun to have everyone go around the table and read their question and answer.  It really sparks some entertaining conversation!

Check out the Stampin’ Up! how-to videos to see everything in the kit and how easy it is to put these projects together!

April Paper Pumpkin…You Are My Anchor

I love the beach and all things nautical so you can see why this month’s Paper Pumpkin is one of my all time favorites! Check out this video showcasing this month’s kit!

Most of the time I use the contents of the kits and make my own cards but this month I could have easily followed the directions and made them exactly as shown in the kit and been thrilled with the result. The kit includes supplies for 20 cards and 4 boxes! I love the 3 x 3 note cards and gift boxes and I thought about keeping a set for me and giving the other 3 sets as gifts. The 3 x 3 cards are great for gift enclosures and/or notes to tuck in lunchboxes and briefcases; however, I decided to play around and turn some of them in to cards I could send in the mail.  I love the stamps and the dies included in this kit! I recommend Paper Pumpkin subscribers purchase the note cards & envelopes so they can continue to use the stamps sets and ink included in their kits to make more cards. They are a great deal for 20 cards and envelopes! Each month I send my Paper Pumpkin subscribers exclusive alternative projects ideas using the products in their kits.   I know there are others like me that may not want to make multiples of the same card. I like to change it up a little. Here is an adorable matchbook treat holder I made using just the supplies in the kit. Perfect for a lifesaver candy!

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin You Are My Anchor Matchbook Treat Holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are not only fun, they are quick & easy to make!

I cut 1″ off the 3 x 3 note card so it measured 2 x 6.  Then I turned and cut 3/8″ off one end so it measured 2 x 5 5/8. I lined it up on the score board so the 3″ score lined up at the 3″ mark and then I scored it at 1/2 and 3 1/4.

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin You Are My Anchor Matchbook Treat Holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Fold the score lines and staple an individually wrapped lifesaver under the 1/2″ flap. Stamp the sentiment above in Island Indigo Ink and tuck in the top flap.  I followed the directions in the kit to decorate and adhere the life preserver using glue dots, twine, and mini stampin’ dimensionals. Adhere to the front and that’s all there is to it!

These little treats are great to have on hand to give out as you go through the drive thru to pick up your morning coffee or give to friends, hairdressers, “helpers” throughout the day, etc.

If you are new to Paper Pumpkin, you can get your first two months at half price!  That’s a great deal! You need to subscribe on or before May 10th to take advantage of this promotion. Click HERE to join. (*Click on Monthly Subscription/ Subscribe and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418.)

Tuesday Tip for Photopolymer Stamps

I had the most wonderful weekend in Hartford, Connecticut with my stamping friends. I was so excited to get to meet Nancy Farrell. Nancy has been following my blog right from the beginning and always brings a smile to my face with her comments.  This was her first Stampin Up! event and she fit right in laughing and joking with the rest of us!  She also shared a cool tip that she does which prevents her photopolymer stamps from staining.  When she gets a new photopolymer stamp set, she removes the plastic on top and adheres the back plastic piece (with the stamps attached) to the inside of the stamp case.  Then she inks up the stamp set with VersaMark and lets it dry.  When she wants to stamp using ink, it cleans up without leaving a stain!  Brilliant!  Thanks Nancy!

I would love for others to join our team!  We have so much fun at these Stampin’ Up! events and online chats! It doesn’t matter if you are local or long distance as we are connected through cyber space. Everyone shares ideas and helps one another out.  Most of the team are hobby demos and it is a great “sisterhood”.  I told you how we rented a house (it was actually a mansion with 7 bedrooms) so we could spend more time together and stamp, cook, chat, swap cards, etc.  I named us “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Stamps”. *I’ll be sharing our swap cards and more this week! Here’s a few photos from the weekend.

I am just returning from Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention in Hartford, Conn.  I had a blast!  It was so much fun getting together with my stamping friends!  Six of us rented a house just outside Hartford so we could extend our stay and have some stamping fun.  We didn’t get much sleep and I laughed so hard my sides hurt! I have so much to share with you in the weeks ahead but first I want to make sure you don’t miss out on some important information…

*The retirement list is coming out today, April 9th at 1PM (MT).  Be sure to check back! You can click on SHOP Stampin’ Up! from my blog (~3 PM EST) and then click on the retirement list. Items sell out fast once they release the list so if there is something you want, don’t wait! We will be saying good bye to the 2016 -2018 In Colors. I really love these colors!!! What’s your favorite retiring In Color? If one color could stay (Hint Hint!!), which one would you want to see again?2016-2018 in colorsHere’s some projects I’ve shared previously using these colors.  Click on any image to see the original post.
