Greetings my stamping friends. I hope this post finds you all doing well. I have some good personal news to share with you all — my home in Carrollton is officially under contract with a scheduled closing of March 29, AND our new home will be completed mid-March and has a scheduled closing date of March 30! Now it is time to get serious about packing, but first there’s always time to create, right!
In just a few days we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day (or at least those who recognize this as a day to celebrate) and I finally got my Paper Pumpkin kit finished from January, as well as the add-on kit. I made the cards pretty much as designed (I did my ribbons a little differently) and for the add-on kit I added a DSP strip that measures 3/4″ x 6″ to create a belly band to keep the boxes closed (v. using ribbon).
The treat boxes are adorable IRL and will hold two Ghirardelli chocolates or three Hershey nuggets. Assembled they measure 3″ x 2″ x 1/2″.
Here is the video from Paper Pumpkin that shows the contents of the kits that made the cards and the treat boxes:
The Snailed It stamp set and the Forever & Always stamp set coordinate with January’s kit as well. You may notice that I used the “hello” stamp from Snailed It as well as the coordinating designer series paper from the suite on the treat boxes. The Forever & Always stamp set has a “Love” stamp that matches the die cut pieces from the January kit. I LOVE how easy it is to mix and match our products! How about you?
I have added some product thumbnails if you want to add these stamp sets and/or designer series paper to your shopping cart:Product List
Today, February 10, is the last day to subscribe to receive the February kit — Bouquet of Hope. This kit will include lots of sentiments to help you send comfort and hope to loved ones during this time of worry about the pandemic. You will not want to miss out on this, I promise.
If you are not already a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, HERE is my personalized link.
When it comes to subscribing to Paper Pumpkin, you have multiple options: (1) month-to-month, and (2) prepaid subscriptions:Product List
A prepaid subscription of 3 or more months counts towards redemption of FREE products during Sale-a-Bration! If you are already a monthly subscriber, you can still purchase a prepaid subscription — you will just need to go into your account and enter the code that you will receive by email. Once the prepaid period has passed, your credit card on file will be charged for each month’s kit until you cancel or pause your subscription. Yes – you can put your subscription on PAUSE at any time before the 10th of each month. You will just want to make sure to remove the pause before the 10th of the month you want your subscription to become active again.
Speaking of Sale-a-Bration, there are only 18 days until this event ends (to return in July with new products). If you have not already redeemed the products you want from the SAB brochure, be sure you get your order(s) in before 11:50 PM (MT) on February 28!
Did you know that you can JOIN as a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator for just $99.00? Did you know that for just $99.00 you will receive $125.00 of products? Even better than that — now through February 28, if you join Stampin’ Up! you will also receive FREE Designer Series Paper as part of Sale-a-Bration (a $57.50 value)! If you do the math, that means you will receive $182.50 worth of products and supplies for just $99.00 — that is almost a 50% discount.
If you have a wish list that is as long as your arm (like me), then you would benefit greatly if you decided to join my team. Not only is the Starter Kit 100% personalized (meaning, YOU pick what you want in your Starter Kit from each product category), you will immediately receive a discount on each order you place after your demonstratorship becomes effective. For a new demonstrator this is a minimum of 20% off of everything you buy! Not sure what to select as part of your Starter Kit, no worries — I can provide you with a suggested list of products.
