Spending time with Paper Pumpkin

Saturday 25 April 2015

I've been so busy lately I haven't made it down to my craft room as often as I wanted to.  I received my April Paper Pumpkin kit this week so it was a great opportunity to "play".  I know I've blogged about Paper Pumpkin in the past, but if you haven't signed up yet, you really should.

Here's a picture of this month's project.  I only made 4 of the cards, but there were really quick and easy and I love how they turned out.
There were lots of stamps to choose from and this kit is perfect for Mother's Day or Father's Day or for thank you cards as I've made.  Everything you need comes in the kit - even the adhesive!  The only thing I supplied was the scissors to cut the twine!

Interested in learning more?  Go to My Paper Pumpkin and check it out or email me!  You can subscribe monthly and the kits will come directly to your each month - only $24.95!  You can choose to cancel or skip a month!  Or you can purchase pre-paid subscriptions for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or a year.  There is a savings if you purchase a pre-paid subscription.

What a great gift this would be for Mother's Day!  

Happy Stamping!

Amazing Quilling

Friday 17 April 2015

Happy Friday everyone!  I wanted to share a birthday card I received from my friend Sue.  Sue and I have been friends since University and she is very talented and does amazing quilling projects.  I've shared some of her work before (check out the Christmas card she created).  This was the card she made me - it's so beautiful that I will be framing it!

I'm always so honoured when I receive a card that someone has put such effort into and the picture doesn't really do it justice!

What I also love about Sue's cards is that she combines her love of quilling with stamping and on the inside she's used stamp sets from a recent Paper Pumpkin kit.

Sue has also introduced me to Zentangle.  I've been practicing and hope to be able to combine Zentangle with my love of paper crafting.  Stay tuned.

How do you combine and share your passions?

Happy stamping!

Purchase the Butterfly Thinlits at a 15% discount - only $26.30.

If you want to order both the Thinlits and the Butterfly Basic Stamp set as a bundle, you can purchase any of the bundles AND choose one for three FREE Sale-a-Bration items (while supplies last)!
