Quick & Easy Birthday Card Video Tutorial

I made this video AGES ago when I first bought the Celebrate You stamp set.




Product List
I used leftover cards from the March 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit. I LOVE those black and white cards! I've been hoarding them, but it's time to let go. You know what else would work really well with this design? The Tutti-Frutti cards and envelopes you can get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration! If you do use them, you won't need to fill in the letters with the Stampin' Write Marker. The design is subtle enough you'll still be able to read it.

Quick & Easy Gift Card Holder Tutorial

Remember this video from last year? The best part of video tutorials is that you can use the ideas, and change the supplies to what you have on hand now!

That was great paper last year, and this year, I LOVE the Christmas Around the World DSP! I have a feeling I'm going to regret not stocking up on it! Now that I've discovered the Christmas Lamppost Framelits cut out the images on the paper I'm OBSESSED!

Here is a list of supplies I've used to create a NEW style of gift card holder using this same video tutorial!

And here is this year's version of the quick and easy gift card holder! No one will ever know it was a last minute gift!

***UPDATE*** 
So, I made a bunch of gift card holders using the above suppies and FORGOT to take a picture! I guess it means I'm using what I make (which is a GOOD thing!) Here are a few using retired paper and the the Smitten Mittens framelits. You can imagine how much cuter they are with the new paper! 


Here is the facebook live I did on a similar project:



Don't you LOVE the Smitten Mittens bundle??? SO ADORABLE.

It's Beginning to Look a LOT Like Christmas!

SNOW in Houston! 

Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, people standing, hat and outdoor

We played in the snow bright and early this morning (before it could melt), and had hot cocoa with marshmallows for breakfast!

We have Christmas movies and music on and are getting our Christmas craft on! This is the most WONDERFUL time of the year!

November 2017 Paper Pumpkin: Back in Plaid

These stockings are SO DANG CUTE! I still can't decide if I want to use them as gift card holders and give them away or use them as Christmas tree ornaments. Is it selfish of me to keep them? I seriously just LOVE them!


So whether or not I choose to keep them or give them away (I really do prefer giving to getting...usually) I WILL use this stamp set again and again! It's a classic!

I hope you enjoy this month's printable case insert! Let me know if you have any questions printing it! I do have a PDF I can send you, but I've run out of room in my dropbox. So until I find a better free storage solution, we'll have to be satisfied with the jpegs.

Also, don't forget that the deadline each month to order your kits, or change the number of boxes you'll get each month is the 10th. That's in just a few days! If you haven't yet subscribed, you can do so here!

October 2017 Paper Pumpkin: Pining for Plaid

I put these cards together IMMEDIATELY and was so sad I couldn't buy refills! 10 cards was NOT enough! Luckily, I had an extra kit from November 2016 that was ALSO full of cute Christmas cards! So SOME of my family will be getting these cards for Christmas, and some will get cards from Wonderful Winterland (ALSO one of my favorite!)



I think it's a sign that I need to order TWO boxes a month instead of just one! (That and the fact that Sophie keeps asking to put together my Paper Pumpkin...maybe she's old enough to get her own subscription!) Seriously, what a great gift to give your daughter, granddaughter, niece, etc. It's really a gift that keeps on giving! It guarantees quality time every month!

Here is your monthly printable case insert you can use to organize your Paper Pumpkin stamps. They are some of my favorite sentiment stamps, and I seem to always look at my "Paper Pumpkin shelf" first to find a good sentiment!
