Love it Even More!

wp-1482373660274.jpgThat’s right, I can’t believe I’m saying that I love this journaling kit even more. In addition to a scrapbook, there are so many wonderful things you can create with the December kit. Watch our alternate video for a few more ideas to get you started.

I love the lunch note idea, just a simple note to let someone know you’re thinking of them.

Learned to Love It!

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2016! It’s also time to document all your memories from the year—enter the December Paper Pumpkin Kit, Another Great Year. This kit makes memory keeping easy and completely customizable. Use the patterned papers, window sheets, stickers, and washi tape to embellish your book. And, for the first time ever—they’ve included a rotary stamp and Basic Black Stampin’ Write® Marker to help you jot down and journal every moment!

I’m not a scrapbooker so I have to admit that I wasn’t totally in love with it but then I realized that this is perfect for my pics from the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera (Shhhh, I haven’t received it yet, it’s a Christmas present but I know I’m getting it!). This camera prints instant credit card size photos and the Paper Pumpkin kit is the perfect place to display them. I’m actually ordering a couple more kits for other family members who have this camera.

We’re going back to instant print and that’s a good thing, because we keep all our digital pictures on our phones, computers and the cloud so it’s nice to have a place to display your favorites and comment on the moment.

Wonderful Winterland, Oh What Fun!

 

wp-1480265789124.jpgI love all the Paper Pumpkin kits, but I am especially excited about the Wonderful Winterland Kit!

Stampin ‘Up! changed the box to match the kit, it’s holiday cards, includes two Classic Stampin’ Spots, and it’s unlike anything they’ve done before in Paper Pumpkin. The laser cut pieces are similar to Edgelits and give the cards wonderful depth and character. As you layer the houses and trees with dimensionals, a lovely little landscape takes shape and helps you feel right at home for the holidays.


Paper Pumpkin should be on every Crafter’s Wish List because it’s like a present every month. You don’t have to stick to the traditional card designs, there are many alternative ideas you choose from on Pintrest and many other sources.

Here are some alternative ideas, you can use a card base to make a matchbox-style holder and slip in a Peppermint Pattie. It’s the perfect little treat for a friend or loved one.wp-1480265614573.jpg

You know those days when all you want to do is sit by the window with a cup of hot cocoa and watch the snow falling outside? That about sums up this shaker card. Use your Big Shot and some fun supplies like the Layering Squares Framelits, Foam Adhesive Strips, Mica Flakes Trio Pack, and Window Sheets to recreate this beauty.wp-1480265611196.jpg

If the weather outside is frightful, stay in and stamp this next card. Use the Softly Falling Textrured Impressions Embossing Folder and Layering Circles Framelits Dies along with a touch of silver ribbon from the 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon Combo Packfor a card that’s sure to warm someone’s heart this season.wp-1480265607834.jpg

And since it’s the season of giving, why not consider giving yourself some Wonderful Winterland Refill Kits today so you can keep on spreading holiday cheer. Refills are available now, while supplies last.
