This month we have a special Paper Pumpkin for you! It was designed by our founder, Shelli Gardner! There are 9 beautiful cards in a pretty box! The box is designed for gift giving, but alas, the USPS decided that wasn't gonna happen for me! lol All good! The cards are great! But we have some amazing alternative designs for you!

Here's my featured alternative this month:

Now as usual for me, for the alternatives, I try to keep to just the materials in the kit. I like to think "what if I was on vacation & wanted to make the kit"? That way it can be mobile, self-sufficient, & flexible! 

This one has a lovely message-hope.  These days that often seems to be lacking, so it's a wonderful sentiment to send to someone. I'm sure you know someone who could use that boost!

Here are the original 3!

As is the case, once ya get going with the alternatives ya just can't stop! lol Here are a few others I came up with!

Now hop over  to my friend Janie's blog at her blog to see her alternative! Then keep going! Simply click on her name here or the icon below! We love comments so feel free to leave one!

Happy Stampin'!

 Happy August!  Summer may be winding down but at Stampin' Up! we are winding up!!! Our new 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog just released! And with it came a great new Sale-A-Bration Catalog!! 
Now we've never had a SAB catalog in the fall before so this is super exciting! That means more FREE stuff! That's right-FREE!! For every $50 that you spend you will be able to choose one of the amazing items in the SAB catalog for FREE!!! 
So this month we decided to share with you some of the beauties that we came up with using the new SAB items!!!!!

Here's my card:

So the stamping is minimal on this card! It's actually a very simple card! This uses the beautiful Beautifully Penned DSP-FREE with your $50 purchase! This is a beautiful pack of a very deep charcoal gray & white DSP. It's designed to go with our Hand Penned Suite found in the Annual Catalog

But wait, it's gray & white you ask? So what is this? Well, This is actually that beautiful paper with the background colored with our Stampin' Blends-Pool Party here! Yup, you could make it any color you wanted!!!

The flowers are fussy cut from this DSP & blinged up with Wink of Stella! Tough to tell here but boy do they sparkle in person! They were just simply popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals on a piece of black cardstock!

And what about that ribbon!! Yup, it's the Gingham Ribbon from the new    Holiday Mini! I am kind of addicted to this ribbon! lol 

The sentiment is from  the Timeless Tulips stamp set & punched out with the   Oval Punch!

Oh, one more new item! If ya look closely you can see some "greenery" behind the flowers. That comes from the new Christmas Trimmings Dies, also found in the Holiday Mini!

Finish it all off with my much used Black Matte Dots, & I think it's a pretty cool card! Very simple, yet packs a punch! Hope you agree!

Now it's time to hop over to my friend Deb's blog & see her SAB creation! Simply click on her name here or the icon below! Then keep going! Tons of great inspiration here from around the world!!!! There are so many wonderful items in this catty & reminder-it's all FREE!!!!!

Happy Stampin'!
