Stampin' Up! Part of My Story

One of my favorite stamp sets in the Sale-A-Bration brochure is called Part of My Story.  I love the sentiments!  "I'm so glad you are part of my story",  "Here's to those who inspire & don't even know it", "Let's get together and giggle" are just a few.  

At our Occasions Catalog Open House, each person who attended received a "Take & Make", which is a little card kit they took home with them.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday


My oldest brother has a birthday coming up.  December's Paper Pumpkin kit included two sets of all 12 months.  After I made up the calendar, I made him a birthday card.  What a fun way to use the extra months!  

There are almost always extra supplies in each kit.  Use your creativity to create projects with all of the extras

To get an inside look at February's Paper Pumpkin kit, check out this video.

Stampin' Up! December Paper Pumpkin


December's Paper Pumpkin kit was a calendar.  Quite easy to put together and it's now hanging by my desk.  It's fun to see what is in the cute little box every month!  Most of the kits are cards, but a few times a year it is a different project.  

Most of the time we have no idea what the theme is or what the project will be.  Once in awhile, Stampin' Up! will give us a hint, or a teaser.  I am expecting January's kit any day now.  We have been told that it will coordinate with the Animal Expedition Suite from the Annual Catalog.  It's such a cute suite -  I can't wait to see what it is!

Stampin' Up! Flowering Desert

Our son, Mark, celebrated his birthday a few days ago.  This stamp set reminded me of a trip out west several years ago.  We spent some time in the desert.  I'm not entirely satisfied with the card but needed to get it done.  I'll keep playing.  

It's hard to see but I spritzed Flirty Flamingo and Crushed Curry for the sky.  After it dried I stamped the cacti images.

Stampin' Up! Bitty Blooms Punch Pak

Demonstrator Connie Richter posted an image showing how she used the Leaf Ribbon to make the stems for the daisies.  I just love the creative use of this ribbon.  Daisies just happen to be my favorite flower so I CASED the idea and came up with this card.  Thanks for the great inspiration, Connie!

The greeting is from Perennial Birthday and is just perfect for this card. I love putting sparkle on my cards so colored the rhinestones with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blend.
