Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Kits Plus a Free Gift

Here’s an easy way to get monthly Paper Pumpkin kits and a free gift of a Sale-a-Bration item:

During Sale-a-Bration, a 3-month prepaid subscription is just $54.85 (that’s $5 off the regular price).

The greatness of this is that since it’s over $50, you get a free Sale-a-Bration item too!

Skip to the fun for three months with all the stamps, ink, and paper ready to go for amazing papercrafting projects.  I have really enjoyed my subscription.  I also got a sneak peek of the next 2 months when I was at Leadership last weekend.  Two fun projects are coming up…they wouldn’t let us take photos, so I’m looking forward to seeing mine when they arrive!  Here’s 2 examples of past kits.

Here’s the link to order the 3-month prepaid and get your free Sale-a-Bration item or click below.
Here’s the link to sign up for monthly kits if you just want one month at a time.

Let Stampin’ Up! do the cutting and prep work so you can skip to the fun!

Lotus Blossom – My Favorite Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set…So Far

I’m back to a semi-regular schedule after the holidays.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends!

This is one of my club cards using the amazing Lotus Blossom set in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

Colors: Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White

It’s a 3 step stamp, so you need 3 shades to keep all the detail of each stamp.  Experiment on scraps to make sure your color choices make the flower you envisioned.

For this one, I used:
Step 1 – Elegant Eggplant full strength
Step 2 – Elegant Eggplant stamped off once
Step 3 – Perfect Plum stamped off once

Stamp each image with the arrow included on the stamp in roughly the same direction to help you line it up as you look through the photopolymer.

Halloween Treat Bags – My Paper Pumpkin Style

Wednesday, the 10th is the last day to sign up for My Paper Pumpkin kits at half off for your first 2 months.  This is for new subscribers only.  Don’t wait…click this link now (you know you’ll forget to do it later).  Use promo code HALFOFF2 to get your first 2 months for half off (just $9.98 a month)!  Here’s a sneak peek at the treat bags in the September kit.

It comes with 3 striped burlap bags and 3 polka dot burlap bags and an awesome Halloween stamp set.  I can’t remember how many stamps, but several greetings and several little ones like a crow, a bat, a skull, and a tree (I think).  I saw the set at convention when I made my sample above, but didn’t take a photo of the set (what was I thinking?).

Let me know if you have any trouble signing up.  I don’t want anyone to miss out on this amazingly cute kit.

Crafting in Style! We Tried Out a New Retreat…

The last week of March we tried out a new retreat that just opened last Fall.  WOW! I love it!  It’s called Moments Retreat Center and it’s in Lake Dallas, TX.  My downline, Becky, found this one for us and we had the whole craft studio to ourselves (5 of us) for the whole weekend starting on Thursday.

Here’s a couple of photos of the studio.  See all my tote bags and card stock crates.  I took these photos after I packed up to leave.

We have a tool sign up list that I made for the last retreat we tried so we can try not to all bring duplicate tools.  I brought all the punches.  It pretty much covered an entire table that someone would have used if other crafters were there.  I guess in the future, we’ll need some folding tables to put tools on.

A sink and a mini fridge right in the studio was awesome!

The house is beautiful!  I wish my house was decorated this nicely.  Here’s some photos of our room and the house…we stayed in the Master Suite which was called the Ruby Room.  I wish I had taken a photo before we messed up our beds, but all the rooms are beautiful!

We laughed, talked, watched movies, listened to classic rock, and created lots of fun stuff.  I can’t wait to go to this one again.  Plus, the location is just 30 minutes from my house.

One of my projects was this banner I made with my Sale.a.bration Heartfelt Banner kit.  I photographed it on her fireplace ’cause, well, look how nice it looks there!  I currently have it hanging over the blinds in my craft room.

Here’s what our stuff looked like after we took over the tables, lol.

BTW, I have a craft show this Saturday at Faithbridge Presbyterian Church in Frisco at College and Hillcrest Rd.  And, also be looking out for the retired list which posts on April 21st!
