January paper pumpkin!

Paper Pumpkin for this month is a Valentine's Day project, of course!

The "Cute Conversations" kit is marvelous!

If you haven't seen it yet, you can follow this link to the Stampin' Up! Blog to view a few alternative project ideas:

You get 30 double-sided cut out hearts, plus all the trimmings (complete with stamps and an ink spot) to make both treat holders and a banner! I used 12 to make a banner and 18 to make nine treat pouches. 

I have only made a few treat pouches so far. But, after seeing my friend Nancy's completed kit, I decided that I would embellish the banner hearts a little more.

Here are some of her treat holders:

And here's one packaged up, all ready to be given:

Aren't they just darling? 
You can see that she used some of her own stock of embellishments, as well as more SU product that she had on hand to fancy them up.

As I said before, I followed her lead and dug out anything I could find that could pertained to Valentine's Day.... I had leftovers from last year's January paper pumpkin ("Filled with Love"), as well as last year's Artisan Embellishment kit, and some fun candy-heart stickers that I bought at Michael's.

Here is the banner I made:

And here are some close-ups:
 I am loving paper pumpkin!

And, did you know that right now during Sale-a-bration there is a sale on Paper Pumpkin?

That's right! A three month pre-paid subscription to this awesome monthly craft kit is only $55! This, of course would qualify you for a free SAB set as well!
A three month pre-paid subscription is a perfect way to try the monthly kit! It also makes a great gift for someone else!

Follow this link for more details on this tremendous deal! 
You want to be sure that you place this order on my demonstrator website, with me, or on a workshop order- not on the paper pumpkin website- in order to use the item code you need!

"No meeting" Sale-a-bration club!

You read that right!

This year, during the annual SAB period at Stampin' Up ( January, February, March) I have decided to try something new.

Many of you do not like to go out in the winter time and let's face it, I don't have the most winter – friendly driveway! BUT none of us want to miss out on placing orders right now!

So… I got to thinking... What if I hosted a club for these three months and we did not have a physical meeting? 
With three of you joining your orders together, at $50 each, (enabling you to get a free item from the SAB brochure) the $150 would be enough to submit a workshop.
When we do that, we earn hostess benefits! And one of YOU earn free hostess benefits each month!

No driving in snow!
No cold basement!
No steep, icy driveway!
Just ordering like you would anyway, and FREE STUFF!

I will make 2 to 3 cards each month and put them in with your order when it arrives.

I will take pictures and send those to you before you put your order together, with notes. That way, if you see something you like you can add it to your order for the month.

If you are local, we will make arrangements for pick up or delivery when the order arrives.

If you are long distance, I will quickly mail out your order to you!

As you may be familiar, SAB allows you one free item from the SAB brochure when you spend $50 before shipping handling and tax.

The choices this year, as always, are fantastic! Several of them coordinate directly with the items in the new Occasions catalog-so, of course, you just have to have everything that matches!

That's not all! 
There are three items in the SAB brochure that are available for a limited time!

That's right!
After February 15 the last three items shown in the brochure will be gone and will be replaced with three new items, just in case we have already collected all of the selections.

You can view the Sale-a-Bration brochure online here:

The new Occasions catalog gives us even more to drool over!
Good thing that goes until May 
31, huh? 
Browse the catalogue here:
If you would like a brochure, and are not currently working with another demonstrator, contact me and I will send one to you.

OK, time is running out to get involved!

Last week I sent out an email about my idea and received an overwhelming response!

I thought I had better advertise this a little more to see if anyone else is interested.

You need to tell me ASAP if you're interested- you can email me, text me, or leave a comment on this blog.

The first order, for January, is due with payment no later than January 27.

For each club we need three people who are interested in placing a $50 order each month (January, February, and March).

Oh, and one more thing...
There is a sale on the three-month pre-paid subscription to My Paper Pumpkin, making a $50 order even easier!

Don't miss out! Contact me today!
