More Hearts a Flutter

I love this set. Use Hearts a Flutter for any type of Love card - birthday, thinking of you, anniversary, wedding...
Is there anything else as pretty as Real Red, Basic Black and Silver Glimmer Paper? This card features the Designer Builder Brads from the Spring Mini Catalog. The Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set is just one of 19 items you can choose for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration and a package of Silver Glimmer Paper is yours FREE with a $150 purchase or a qualifying workshop.
Embossed with White Embossing Powder on Basic Black card stock really makes this heart and sentiment pop! The just for you stamp is included in the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit on page 18 of the Spring Mini Catalog. You will want to come back later this week to see what I am doing with the Posies.

Just a note on Paper Pumpkin - I would love it if you would choose me as your demonstrator when you subscribe to receive this monthly Kit-in-the-Mail service. If you would take a second step and send me a quick email letting me know you have signed up that would be awesome too since Stampin' Up! will not be forwarding your name to me. The kits will be fabulous "as is" but I will be showing you a stepped-up version of each project once I receive mine!

Please visit my website to shop online from the comfort of your own home. I won't tell you are in your jammies if you don't ;}

Introducing Paper Pumpkin

It's a Magical Paper Escape Every Month!

Calling all Crafting Cinderella's... your Paper Pumpkin awaits!
Who is Paper Pumpkin?
  • I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I'll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.
  • I come in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside:
  • All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!
  • Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone (even you) can enjoy!
Get Started
It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program by visiting and click Get it. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!
Of course, you'll want to know more. So here's the nitty gritty:
  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you a 30-minute creativity escape.
  • We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.  
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on February 10th, we'll send your kit around March 15th. If you sign up on February 11th, we'll send your first kit around April 15th.)
  • There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
