Happy HUMP Day and I hope that we all are going to have a GREAT day!
I have been kickin’ my heels with gratitude that these past 2 days have been BEE-utiful but we all know, it will not last but heck – I will take it when I can!
My animals are so happy….blankets are off the horses and I think now there is no mud in the fields as it is all over them! The work never ends but they feel great!
In reading the comments on the Birthday Post using the Paper Pumpkin Kit…..there are a BUNCH of you that are like me….I love to make multiple cards of the same ….Here is a tip of what works for me!
I am odd that I seem to like to make even #’s of cards and I usually do 4 cards…
I do like to keep on of them for reference in case I want to make it again, but what I do is use a pencil and write on the back of that card that I keep….who I sent it to – this way if I want to send that last one…..I know whom I have sent it to….simply erase the names and in the mail it goes!
One thing that I think we all seem to do is…..
CREATE…and then have a STACK OF UN-SENT CARDS!
I know personally I am totally guilty of that and last Fall I did a HUGE PURGE of donating them to a variety of places so they will get used!
For me, I simply have to do this as I get so overwhelmed and frustrated with myself.
If they are GONE….I not only feel better but I know that they will get used and bring a smile to someone that is in need of a PICK ME UP! (I get that, we all need that!)
I just checked and that Paper Pumpkin Full Kit is still available and remember, IF you want it….you need to be a current Paper Pumpkin Subscriber and what I would do is just get a 1 month subscription as I do think that the kit this month will be a good one (fingers crossed) as the sneak peek video was great….and then you can simply turn around and unsubscribe – it is as simple as that!
OK….HERE IS THE WINNER!!!! Way to go Alyece and please send me your address so I know where to send the cards and Birthday Bags to! WOOT-WOOT….get up and DO THAT DANCE!!!! SHAKE IT!!!!
One thing that I did forget to blog about is……what I do is CIRCLE the day of the month that the Birthday recipients special day is on or you could also use a small heart stamp and stamp over the date so it will POP out!
I did order another kit as this was so easy and fun to do! I will do another blog post about the other examples that I did as I have had emails about other DSP combinations!
Many thanks to all that left comments as I know that it is super fun to read what others do…as a I a FIRM BELIEVER….by sharing and getting other ideas and inputs is how we learn, grow and let’s face it – stick our heads out and give it a try!
Let’s move on…. the LAST DSP PRODUCT SHARE for the Occasions Catalog! Please EMAIL ME ASAP if you want to snag one of these as I will not be offering them again. They will be mailed out on Friday so be the early bird and get that share!
I have had several emails of people wanting more Occasion Catalog Product Shares! Well….this IS your last chance and I only have (2 to offer to you.)
Are you asking – “WHY JUST 2 ????” well…..truth be told that Stampin’ Up! has several of the ribbons on backorder and there is just no use in trying to offer them when it will be up in the air as to when they come in (and actually fill back orders first) so……with that said – this is what I have for you!
Share #1 – Designer Series Paper – $19.00 ( I ONLY HAVE 3 of these available)
You will get a 1/2 Sheet of Paper (6″ X 12″) in the offerings that are 12″ X 12″ Papers….(there are 5 of them) and then 6″ X 6″ paper in the other (2) DSP’s as they are just a 6″ X 6″ offering. (see *** below)
I take great pride in cutting these papers for you and carefully put them between sturdy cardboard to prevent damage from shipping!
- All My Love
- Floral Romance
- How Sweet It Is
- Happiness Blooms
- Gingham Gala *** 6″ X 6″
- Needlepoint Nook

Product Share #2 – Embellishments – $18.00 (please disregard the #4 on the picture below….that image was from when I did my 1st offerings for a Product Share.) ( I ONLY HAVE 4 of these available)
This is one area that always seems to put that smile on our faces. Little accents add that special touch to a project and I know….I know – we love to get the blings….but we never use a whole pack! Let me help you out! Just like I do in all of my shares….I cut, sort and package so you will have some from the buffet without getting stuffed!
- Heart Epoxy Droplets – 24 in total

- Mini Buttons – Just adorable and will be the PERFECT accent to a card! 6 in total.
- Garage Keys – Another hit for this catalog….great for Valentines as you “are the key to my heart” 4 in total
Have a FAB-O HUMP day and I have a super sweet gingham card that will make you smile…the next time I blog! I was super happy with the end result that I went ahead and did that (4) thing that I shared that I do….and made it in different color combos!
