Paper Pumpkin Savings

Thought I would again mention the current promotion for Paper Pumpkin and clarify a few points. 

First off, this promotion is for new subscribers only. If you are a current subscriber or have subscribed in the past, this promotion is not available. However, you could sign up for a friend or family member.

It's important to note that if you take this promotion, you are signing up for a subscription. This means that you will receive the first two months at 50% off the retail price of $24.95 (includes shipping) and the following months will be at the regular retail price. You can choose to skip months (handy for the the US based holidays) and cancel at any time as long as you do it before the 10th of the month.

Go to the Paper Pumpkin website to find out more about Paper Pumpkin, manage your existing subscription or create a new account on behalf of your friend or family member.

Paper Pumpkin Club - I am hosting a club night once per month, in the evening from 7:00-9:00 pm. It's a gathering place for Paper Pumpkin subscribers who like to craft together. Open your box that night or, if you were too excited and opened it already, come anyway. A great place to make the project together and share ideas for other projects to make from that kit. The dates will be posted on my Event page.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate contacting me.

A Balloon Card

I used the two balloon stamp sets, Balloon Bash and Celebrate Today, for one of the box cards for Tuesday's class and while still on my desk, decided to make a card. I had recently seen a z-fold card. This fold has been around for a long time but it's always fun to bring new life to an old style.

Take an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of cardstock. Position the longer side along the top edge of the score board and make two score lines, one at 2", the other at 4-1/4".

So, when you sit down to make a card, try this one out; I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Box Card Class-Happiness All Around

Thought I would share the wonderful class we had last night. Five ladies joined me in learning how to make the fabulous box card. We made two of them using the Butterflies Basics, Balloon Bash and Celebrate Today stamp sets.

Essential tools for making a box card is the Stampin' Trimmer for cutting your paper and the Simply Scored board for scoring your cardstock. Also, because we had to add some diagonal score lines to the project, we used the Simply Scored Diagonal Scoring Plate (item #125586 $15.95).

Here are the cards up close.

Box Card Class-Tuesday, May 19, 7:00 PM

The end of May is busy for me as I have a couple of weekends away but I'm happy to host a class on Tuesday evening, May 19 at 7:00 PM. I've selected a box card template to make two cards. This box card is very easy to create from one sheet of 8.5 x 11 inch card stock, some Designer Series Paper and a few embellishments. Wrap it with ribbon and you have a unique looking card. I'll have a template for you to take home so you can make some more.
