Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!!! This month our Bouquet of Hope kit has some beautiful sentiments of comfort! As you hop around here you will find some great alternatives to do with your kit! While the originals are great, it's always good to "take a chance"!

Here's my card:

When I work an alternative for my Paper Pumpkin kits I like to try to stick as much as possible to the elements within the kit! I think it showcases the versatility of the products! Plus, some of you PP subscribers don't have a ton of other materials to play with!

The only "extras" on my card are some Cherry Cobbler cardstock & a different sentiment from Itty Bitty Wishes stamp set. See this bouquet screamed out to me wedding/anniversary/etc.! So I took the bouquet, fussy cut some of the other flowers in the kit, and put it together! Oh, I forgot-there is some Wink of Stella on the flowers. I don't think I make anything without the "wink"! I love the gold in this kit!!!!

So now hop on over to Darla's blog & see her alternative! Simply click on her name or on the icon below! Then keep going! Be sure to leave a friendly comment!

Happy Stampin'!

It's Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop time!!! 

Hope your February 2021 is not leaving you snowbound!!! Lots of the white stuff here in New England!

Well here we are in our final month of this round of Sale-a-Bration!! There are so many amazing products in this catalog! But you still have the rest of this month to get your goodies! We are featuring these products for one more month! So be sure to check these out,  & don't miss out on your faves! Once they're gone-they're gone!!! Remember, these are FREE with your $50 purchase!

So here's my card:

I am soooooo in love with these Darling Donkeys! This set will live forever in my collection! I decided to use an overlapping fun fold to show him off!

I thought the amazing Paper Blooms DSP-also a SAB item-was a fun background! Lots of color & excitement! It just brings me joy! lol 

The sentiment inside is yet another SAB item-Approaching Perfection! This has some fun birthday sentiments, including a fun belated sentiment-which unfortunately I use way too often! lol

The donkey was colored in with Stampin' Blends, and I finished him off with an adorable little In-Color Butterfly Gem that just "flew" onto his nose!!!

So you have just a few more weeks to get your Sale-a-Bration!  If you don't already have a demonstrator you're working with and would like to see the items you can find them HERE! But don't wait too long!

 Card Class-to-Go!


Introducing the new monthly Card Class-to-Go!!! 

Each month, I will design a card kit for you to create 4-5 beautiful cards!


Your kit will include the materials needed to create the cards-card bases, DSP, embellishments, ribbons, etc.

You will use your own adhesives, inks & stamp sets to complete the sentiments! Each kit will come with a PDF with directions & measurements for the cards so you can use the design over & over!


Each month you will also be given a purchase option to upgrade that will include a stamp set/bundle/item! But it won’t be necessary unless you want to purchase it! You will order that using a Hostess Code, & it will be delivered directly to your house!!! The stamp/bundle will be chosen to coordinate with the monthly kit and give your cards an even bigger WOW factor!


The kit will cost $20 (plus $5 shipping if desired-pick up is also available at no charge). There is no subscription! You will decide which months you would like to purchase the kit! I will always have 6 kits available, but cannot guarantee more-so sign up early! You will have 2 weeks to place your order. 

Kits will either be available for pick or be mailed out the first Wednesday of each month. Kit must be prepaid using cash, check or PayPal.


I am excited to be able to share these kits with you!!! These are perfect for the beginner or the avid stamper who just needs some inspiration! 


Watch tomorrow for the first kit!!!!

Did ya ever notice when ya look in the catalog something may look meh to you, but then when ya see it in action you are all over it?

I can't tell you  how many times I've already used this stamp set!!!! It's so quick & easy!!!!!! And it was FREE!!!!

Oh and are ya just dying for that DSP? Yup, FREE too! It's called Flower & Field DSP-also in the Sale-a-Bration Catalog!!!
