For those of you that have always wondered what it’s like to be a demonstrator for SU, I can tell you that it is one of the best ways I have for de-stressing after a long day at work before heading off to bed. If you have always wanted to sign up and see for yourself, now is a great time to join.

Not only will you get a starter kit (which is already a great value at $99 USD for $125 USD worth of products) but for a limited time, until June 30th, you can select any stamp/tool bundle from the new 2020–2021 annual catalog for FREE. This means that when you purchase your Starter Kit, as a new recruit you can select ONE stamp and punch bundle (p. 168–169) or ONE stamp and die bundle (p. 173-179) from the 2020–2021 annual catalog in addition to the regular starter kit.

July Paper Pumpkin

Box of Sunshine shareable image

Celebrate the magic of summer nights with the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin Kit! In this exclusive fun-filled kit, you’ll unbox enough supplies to create nine postcard-style cards, coordinating envelopes, and die-cut tealight bags. What’s even more spectacular about July’s kit is the add-on you can purchase along with it! The Summer Nights Add-On includes 24 card bases and envelopes in coordinating Summer Nights designs. This add-on is perfect for helping you expand the Summer Nights creative experience beyond the Paper Pumpkin kit. Between the add-on and the leftover supplies from your Summer Nights kit, you will be crafting a summer night worth celebrating all month long!

Don’t miss out on the fireworks, fireflies, and fun! Subscribe to the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin Kit between 11 June and 10 July, and order the Summer Nights Add-On starting 1 July; while supplies last.

July’s kit contains enough supplies to create nine postcards and coordinating envelopes, as well as nine die-cut tealight bags. The card size is 4” x 5-1/4” (10.2 x 13.3 cm) while the envelope is sized 4-1/2” x 5-3/4” (11.4 x 14.6 cm). Coordinating colors for July are Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Costal Cabana, Night of Navy.

Summer Nights Add-On

The Paper Pumpkin add-on kit is filled with more great ideas, but it is not required to create completed projects with the July Paper Pumpkin kit. 

Note: During demonstrator product testing, SU learned that the Summer Nights Add-On could make at least 20 additional cards when combined with the leftover pieces from the Summer Nights kit.

Make sure you place your order for July’s Paper Pumpkin kit by July 10th, and you can order the add-on kit starting July 1st, but only while supplies last. Click here to order your Paper Pumpkin kit, and order the add-on kit at the same time (Item 154973|$10.00 USD).

Holiday Paper Pumpkin Part 1

Paper Pumpkin

For those customers that love the Holiday Paper Pumpkin kits, be sure to order yours now, to be certain you get part 1 of the Holiday kits. October is the first one in the set, and is available until October 10th, or until supplies run out. These kits are super popular every year. The October and November Paper Pumpkin kits are named Winter Wonders this year. I am super excited about them because I love how easy they make some of my holiday decorating and gift giving.

Octber’s kit includes supplies to make 10 cards and envelopes (card size: 4 1/4″ x 5-1/2″, envelope size: 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″) and uses the coordinating colors of Early Espresso, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Shaded Spruce.

Now if you have been following my blog, you KNOW these are some of my favorite colors, and they look fabulous together. Early Espresso as a background just lets the Pool Party and Poppy Parade pop right off the page, and Shaded Spruce is such a pretty shade of green it also goes beautifully with Pool Party and Poppy Parade!

I can’t wait to get my October Paper Pumpkin! I hope you are just as excited! If you are, just click here to place your order for part 1 of Winder Wonders Paper Pumpkin kits.

Creativity Abounds

While everyone has their own idea of what makes a great project, individuality is what makes each and every one great in it’s own right. That’s what has always drawn me to be a demonstrator for Stampin’ UP! All the products coordinate to let me create my own unique projects, even though I am part of a great bunch of people that use the same products. Over the past few months I have been busy with life’s callings, but still creating cards and other projects, while my blog has unfortunately fallen by the wayside. Things are slowly beginning to return to what I would call normal, at least for me. My posts will once or twice a month for now, and will pick up again once things get back to my true normal. In the meantime, here are some of the cards I created over the past couple months.

When creating cards for those special people, always remember to design a matching envelope. Using a Stamparatus will help make those cool designs line up perfectly along the sides of an envelope, no stress, no mess, no fuss!

As the next couple weeks pass, you’ll see a few more new projects from me, as things will get moving forward again. In the meantime, always stay creatively stamping!


Sale-a-Bration Ending, April beginnings

At midnight tonight, this year’s Sale-a-Bration comes to an end! If you have that last minute item that you were thinking of getting, make sure you place your order in time. A couple items that have been on back order (the Butterfly Gala suite, as well as the Butterfly Duet punch) are available again.

The new catalog comes out in a couple months, so soon we will know which items from THIS year’s catalog will be retiring, other than the 2017-2019 InColor suite. If there are items from that suite that you absolutely love (such as Fresh Fig or Powder Pink!), order them now before they run out, because once that happens, those colors are gone for good.

Coming up next month, a new Paper Pumpkin kit with one of Stampin’ UP’s beautiful Distinktive stamp sets, which is a photo realistic style of image, and a new monthly class by mail. I will also be opening up spots on my calendar for workshops, so if you live nearby and are interested in hosting one, please let me know!

Check back later this week to see what April’s Class by Mail will be, when you can sign up for workshops, an d for other great stuff happening throughout the month.

As always, stay creatively stamping!
