March Paper Pumpkin and a 50% code!

I love Paper Pumpkin, but I can tell you that March beat every kit I’ve gotten and there were several that I really loved. For those of my followers who don’t know what Paper Pumpkin is, let me share! Paper Pumpkin is an all inclusive kit that comes out each month with a new project that has everything you need (minus snips) to complete the entire project. HOW AWESOME IS THAT??
This month Stampin’ Up! and Paper Pumpkin is celebrating it’s 5th Anniversary and also added a gift for everyone that ordered for March. But wait there’s more (lol, I always wanted to say that), for those who still want to share in the excitement, you can get your first 2 months at 50%off! How great is that ONLY $10 a month for 2 awesome kits? Use this link with the coupon code of SAVEFIFTY0418!

Check out my videos below. I did it in two videos this time because we are coming up at the end of Sale-A-Bration and wanted to share some of the awesome products.

Step it Up Saturday

Hi everyone; so glad to be back to the blog.  I went from flu to double ear infection and now deaf in one ear temporarily while they try to get swelling down.  Believe it or not no pain just pressure so I think I’m pretty lucky!

I wanted to share with you some techniques each Saturday to show you simple ideas to step up your projects.  Many years ago I used to see this used in scrapbooking a lot to help go from pretty to Wow status.  So I hope you will all join me and trying with projects that you do to see how to just add the little oomph to get it there.

Today we are working with the Narrow Note Cards that are currently in our Occasions Catalog.  These are adorable to create with.  I hope you will share some of your projects on what you consider Stepping It Up.  I would love to see what ideas you have as well.  Let’s keep this going and see all the different projects we can do this with!

I hope you enjoy this set, it was a quick idea, but I see how I can get better and better at this!!  Let’s share what everyone else thinks we can do!

1 st card was completely stamped on the card base with a tag added.  I did use the New Stampin’ Up! Blends Alcohol Pens.  I absolutely LOVE THEM.  Not sure why this photo seems blurry.  But I guess I better figure out before I do more.

The next card I added some designer series paper, Fussy Cut my Panda Bear and cut the balloon out of Bermuda Bay Cardstock to pop up a bit.  I also added and extra tag to pop the color out some more.

 

 

The last card I cut the designer series paper down a little and added some Bermuda Bay Cardstock.  I fussy cut my panda out again adding the balloon.  Next I added some tutti fruiti sequins.  This step draws your eyes to all of the colors and it did not take much longer than the first card with the exception of the fussy cutting (never my favorite part but worth it!).

 

Let’s take a look at all three together.  I think they are all adorable but the options are endless!

 

Hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial and be expecting bigger and better in the upcoming Saturdays!!  Not to mention better pictures.

Sale-A-Bration and the Occasions Catalog

Woo Hoo, my favorite time of the year at Stampin’ Up!  The Occasions Catalog came out today, and it is simply awesome.  Each year we have a great catalog for the spring and you will love it.  One of the great parts is the fact that for every $50 you spend you get to pick a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  How great is that and the catalog helps you to match up with items that you have ordered.

Each day I want to share some great items, I’m not going to lie I have some hands down favorites in both of the catalogs.  I can’t wait to share each suite of products for easy and fun to create projects.

If you would like me to send you both of the catalogs just send me a message with your address and I will get one out to you right away.  If you would like get in on it right away here is a link for ordering with the Occasions Catalog.  Click Here!!  Take a look at some of the products coming your way!

Let’s start celebration off right!  If you would like to get a handmade card made to give to a friend post a comment, if you would like to get a second one guess what my favorite item might be in the new Occasions Catalog.  There might even be a hint somewhere on this page!
