Work of Art Tag

Here is card #2 from my Stamp of the Month Class using the Work of Art stamp Set.  This card shows how well the NEW In Color Lost Lagoon coordinates with the current colors — Coastal Cabana and Pool Party.  It makes for a great monochromatic color match.  I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch for the tag on the front of this card — this punch is a must have for everyone.

Thank You TagNew month's Stamp of the Month Class will focus on the Ronald McDonald House Charities Stamp Set called Flamingo Lingo.  Don't miss this great class — email me now for details.

Work of Art Scenery

This month's Stamp of the Month Class featured the Work of Art Stamp Set.  I love this stamp set — there are so many awesome things to do with the "blotches" in this set.  I found this card on Pinterest and I loved the use of the "blotches" as scenery — grass and clouds.

Flowers & ButterfliesWe also used the adorable little flower stamp from the Something to Say stamp set.  This little flower has a coordinating punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack — love this punch pack.

Watch over the next few days as I show you some of the other great cards we made during June's Stamp of the Month Class.  In July we are going to make cards using the new Ronald McDonald House stamp set — "Flamingo Lingo".  I hope you sign up to attend July's class.

Paper Pumpkin Kits — these are a MUST have!!

Ok, so My Paper Pumpkin has been around for about a year and a half now.  Some of you have been subscribers in the past — some of you get the craft kit every month — good for you. 

I subscribed to the Paper Pumpkin kits when they first started shipping.  I must admit that I had never put a single kit together.  I opened them every month so I knew what my customers were receiving but I never sat down to complete a kit. 

Well, I had to do a presentation on Paper Pumpkins at a downline meeting Tuesday night, so it was time to play with these kits.  What did I learn while researching Paper Pumpkins??  PINTEREST is full of Paper Pumpkin ideas!!  Of course you can assemble your projects just as Stampin' Up! designed them — you get full colored pictures to be able to assemble the kit.  BUT, Oh My Goodness, you should see all of the great samples on Pinterest.  I HAD A BALL "CASE-ING" some projects.  Check out the items I made using the NOEL kit:

Isn't this scrapbook page adorable.  I found it on Pinterest — I'm sorry I don't know who created in but I thought it was fabulous. 

And how about these cards — love them and yes they were from Pinterest too.
Noel groupThis kit had supplies for four cards — I made 2 scrapbook pages, 4 cards AND I had a few supplies left over.  I did add a couple pieces of Real Red and Whisper White cardstock.

Beginning June 1st, Stampin' Up! has really "upped" these kits.  Now each month will be a different color stampin' spot.  If the kit for the month makes cards — now you will get supplies to make EIGHT cards and envelopes are included.  The instructions are so much better than in the past.  I have fallen in LOVE with My Paper Pumpkin kits.  Remember they aren't all cards — sometimes it's a 3-D item or even little scrapbooks or journals.  You never know what the kit will be and half the fun is the surprise when you get your "little red box" in the mail.  And now you can purchase a 3 — 6 or 12 month subscription to My Paper Pumkin — what a great gift idea.  How about spending time with your kids or grandkids and crafting together.

Can you tell I'm excited about these kits.  If you haven't tried them yet I ask that you consider ordering a 3-month subscription to give it a try.

Just go here to sign up:
AND don't forget to choose me (Peggy Murwin) as your demonstrator.  I'm thinking of holding a special event for Paper Pumpkin subscribers — what do you think?
