October D’s Stamping Team USA Give Thanks

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be a guest hopper this month for Darla Robert’s team blog hop. Thank you so much for having me!
Today we are giving thanks for the many blessing we have in our life. I know for my family, we have so much to Give Thanks for.
For this hop, I really wanted to make a card that was quick and easy but also fun. I found these cute little punch art pumpkins on Pinterest (where else!) and knew that I needed to make some while it was still Fall. I found that they can be made with either an oval or a circle punch and go together in a snap. I paired them with the gorgeous plaid paper from the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper so they can really stand out as the focual point of the card. I made pumpkins in three differenct sizes just to show how easy ther are. I used two on my card and then created a cute little treat with the last one.

Now, it’s time to hop on over to Kay’s blog and see what she has made this month. Thanks so much for hopping by. Please leave me some love in the form of a coment andy You can subscribe to my blog so that you never miss a post

Halloween Treats

Happy Tuesday everyone! I have an adorable treat holder to share with you today. I don’t normally craft a lot for this holiday but this year the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper was too cute and I knew I wanted to ordert it. I am so excited to give these to some very special kids this weekend.
These cute treat holders are made using the new Pillow Box framelit in the Holiday catalog and I think they are adorable. It is the perfect size to hold a few treats. 
The boxes were crafted out of the paper and then decorated with the Home & Hearth window framelit, a punch art ghosts and some small pumpkins as an accent. I think the kids are going to love these!
I hope you are inspired by this fun project! Let me know you were here by leaving me some love in the form of a comment. You can subscribe to the blog and never miss another post!

Stamp Out Breast Cancer with Paper Pumpkin

To show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re going PINK . . . or at least our October boxes are! And because we know our subscribers want to share the love too, we will be making a donation on their behalf to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Stampin’ Up! will donate
  • $1 for every active Paper Pumpkin subscriber.
  • Plus, an additional $1 for every new subscriber.
Together, we will make a difference!
Here’s how you can help: 
  1. Subscribe! If you’re new to Paper Pumpkin, click here to get started. Your first kit will arrive in a limited-edition pink box that you’ll want to hold onto forever-and we’ll donate $2 because you’re new!
  2. Stay active if you’re a subscriber so we can donate $1 for you. Only those who receive the October shipment will be counted for the donation.
  3. Spread the word! Help us get as many new subscribers as possible. Every current subscriber adds $1 and for new subscribers it’s doubled, so let’s get the word out and raise as much as possible. 

More About BCRF

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $550 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis, making it one of the largest non-governmental funders of breast cancer research in the world. This year BCRF has invested $58.6 million in research, to support over 235 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents, including $11.6 million to the international Evelyn H. Lauder Founder’s Fund focused on metastasis. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness programs, BCRF remains one of the nation’s most fiscally responsible nonprofits. BCRF is the only breast cancer organization with an “A+” from CharityWatch, and has been awarded Charity Navigator’s highest rating of four stars 13 times since 2002. For more information, please visit: www.bcrfcure.org.

Additional Details: 

  • New subscribers are those who signed up between September 11 and October 10, 2015 and have not been a Paper Pumpkin subscriber at any time in the past. 
  • All funds will be donated in US dollars.
  • Mini spoiler alert! The October project inside the pink box is just as awesome as always, but we should probably let you know that it is not a pink project. That’s all we’re saying. 😉

ICS Blog Hop – Be Mine

Hello fellow crafter’s and Happy New Year!! I hope that your holiday season was full of blessings and the new year is off to an amazing start. It is the first Wednesday of the month and that means another fantastic Blog Hop with the Inspire, Create, Share Hoppers!
You may have arrived here from Olivia’s Blog. Isn’t she so talented? I love her work! Or you may have started here and I want to say welcome to everyone.

And now, onto my project. This card image is from the just released stamp set Big on You and I have to say that it is in my top 3 favorites from the new Occasions Catalog. I love when I have a big image that can be the main focal point for a card. They can be dressed up or left simple and make quick work of card making in a pinch.
 I thought this card would be great for Valentines Day and can easily be switched up for your guy using a different background masculine colors. It could also be a great anniversary card or any time!

All of the supplies used can be found below and you can shop my store 24/7 to order these great products.


Now, onto Nichole’s blog to see what she has in store for you! Thanks for Hopping with us. Please leave Blog Love in the form of a comment and subscribe so you never miss a post! Happy Stampin’!
