...thanks to my July Paper Pumpkin Kit!
I showed you the projects from July's Paper pumpkin kit here and I still am amazed by the color combo--one I certainly never thought to put together: Blackberry Bliss and Soft Sky and Whisper White. I thought I'd take a minute to work with those colors and here are some of the things I came up with!
I AM LOVING this leaf/feather image!!!
So one of my favorite parts of attending Convention (besides swapping) is all the photos of display boards that we can take--this is a card based on one I saw on one of those boards and I LOVE IT!!
The twine circle is just that--a few rounds of linen thread and a couple of glue dots to hold them down!
Here is last month's Paper Pumpkin Kit projects! You get to make 6 of each! But I wanted to take it a step further and try some other things with the kit contents. Each of the following cards are made from the stamps or pieces in the paper pumpkin kits from the last several months. Super fun to play with these items! If you like 'em, why not try a subscription? There are details at the bottom and you can get half off your first 2 months when you use the code, HALFOFF2 on the link below!
The above samples were made with previous paper pumpkin kits. If you would like to see/order any of them, please contact me. To start up a new paper pumpkin subscription, check out the details here and be sure to use the code HALFOFF2 to get half off the first two months:
So we have this WONDERFUL subscription service, My Paper Pumpkin and I am just loving the adorable kits we get each month in our mailboxes! Once you make the projects which can be anything from a framed piece of art or giftbags, but mainly cards, you have left over stuff--consumable tags, stickers, and cardstock, as well as stamps. My goal was to make a bunch of things with some of the left-overs that I loved so much! Here is one of those left overs!
First of all, I used my Cameo Silhouette to create this awesome cursive word. It is actually a left over from a project I did for my hostess appreciation dinner. We used the word smile on a project, and this is the negative of the word--left over! I trimmed it down and popped it up on my white card with the aarow stamp design left over from one of the paper pumpkin kits!
The image Smile is from an MDS digital Download, A walk in the park II, and I imported it to my cameo silhouette to cut it out of black cardstock--easy peasy! Hope you like it! I'll be posting more of the awesome projects I came up with soon!

So this is another Thank You I've made recently--but this one was for a swap I did at convention last month. I love the color combo, the simplicity and how quickly it came together. I am really lovin these new photopolymer border sets, this one being the Dotty Angles!!
And don't forget, CARD and SCRAPBOOK Clubs start up next week! Please contact me to sign up today! Both Local and VIRTUAL options available! Let me know if you have any questions!!
So I needed to make a nice, but quick thank you card because I needed quite a few of them--this is what I came up with and I just loved how it turned out! It was super easy and I think looked great! I also have noticed that I like using the new Memento Ink Pad for my black ink as it dries quickly (but the pad doesnt dry out quick) and it doesnt stain my stamps!
I don't know about you but, when something new comes out and it is so super duper awesome, you just can't stop playing....you ignore your house, kids, husband....here it is! BLENDABILITIES!! I am so in love with them! The best part is they are pretty fool-proof!! I love to color, and while I am pretty good at it, I find it tedious and time-consuming. While you can certainly take a great deal of time doing this, they are really quick, easy and successful for coloring!
This card is about my first attempt at blendabilities...I have a few scraps I showed my customers, but this is the first one I made (all by my self...insert proud moment) :) I am really loving them!! However, I have found out that there is a bit of a trick to it all!! If you'd like to join me, I have a FANTASTIC offer for you: Blendabilities Techniqe Bundle!

Ok, Like so many of you, I hate it when I am all set on not liking a set or stamp only to have my mind changed for me when I see adorable samples....
This is a swap I recieved at Convention this year and I did not NEED this stamp until I swa this sweet, adorable, simple card! I think it is perfect, too!! So, I have it now...are you happy?!? It happens to me as much as it happens to you! :)
