Well, well, September is almost upon us. What a quick year and I am finding that every day goes so quickly! So, I wanted to touch base for a few updates on some things and keep you all up to date!
First, let’s visit the Paper Pumpkin for September! It looks like a warm, cozy autumn has hit the box! Even the name sounds oh so fallish!
Hay, there (ha, get it?)! Experience everything the autumn season has to offer with the Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit! This month’s kit includes enough supplies to create 12 treat boxes—4 each of 3 designs. That means you can take your pick of apple, pumpkins, or jack-o-lantern treat boxes! Plus, the Paper Pumpkin box is designed to easily transform into a vintage wheelbarrow for you to display your harvest!
Whether you’re thinking about crisp red apples or you’re ready to carve some spooky jack-o-lanterns (or both!), the Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit—designed in a vivid fall palette—is a hands-on crafting experience for all autumn lovers!

Stampin’ Up has a unique program called the Bundle Focus Program. Every month, they give the demonstrators tools to use to share these bundles. Videos, samples, etc. to share with our customers. I am starting to feature these also. The first one I will be featuring is the Evergreen Elegance Bundle (page 91 in the Annual Catalog). Here is the video of a couple of the projects they have made for this lovely bundle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTWgqnB-ZaM . So join me in trying out this bundle. I will be getting an online class together in October.
Last Sunday I held my Sunday Craftin’ Gal’s Gathering and I challenged my gals. Sharon Armstrong had a demo of using the ink refills with lots of water and making pumpkins out of the various colors! I loved the way hers turned out so I definitely wanted to try the technique. It was a bit intimidating at first, but we all ended up having a grand time and amazed at how unique and beautiful each persons came out! I want to do a HUGE shout out to Sharon for the fabulous idea. We basically CASE’d her card to the tee, except of course for the various colors in each of the pumpkins. This was my sample card. The white marks are the reflection as the pumpkins are embossed with clear embossing powder and they really take on a beautiful life. I used Pretty Pumpkins Bundle for this card. For more details visit my Stampin’ Up! site.
Next I had them dry embossing on vellum for a Christmas card CASE’d from Diana Langman of My Stamp Nook. Her original was done with a subtle crumb cake, but I fell in love with the idea of the card. So, we had fun making my version of the card.
I am loving the unique color of pink for Christmas. Very soft and feminine. For this project I used Merriest Moments Bundle, and the Poinsettia Dies. See my site on Stampin’ Up! for more info.
Well, that is all for today. I am working at adding this blog or a similar type thing to the Demonstrator Business Web Site so you can all keep up with my projects. Visit my site : https://creatingwithpaper.stampinup.net. Thanks for visiting my blog today. Until next time…
