January Paper Pumpkin Kit, Adoring Arrows, were these cute treat bags. There was enough supplies to make 24 bags. The kit included everything you need to complete them excluding scissors. A full set of stamps, ink spot, adhesives, metallic thread and all the paper material to make the bags and arrows. The kit is such a great deal and comes with instructions and there is a You Tube video on how to make the project. Sometimes it’s cards, banners, wreath, treat bags/holders and who knows what it will be from month to month.
You can buy the kit two ways. One way is a prepaid subscription where you can buy 1 month, 3 months, 6 month or 12 months. Right now StampinUp is running a special on the 3 month subscription for $55 in lieu of $59. To sign up for a subscription just go to this link http://darleneseitz.stampinup.net and click on Shop then Paper Pumpkin. Also when you purchase at least a 3 month subscription, you’ll receive a free item of your choice from our Sale-A-Bration catalog. This deal will last until March 31, 2017. In fact, you can receive a free item for every $50. that you spend. Please see my blog regarding SAB, here is the link in case you want to check it out: https://stampincardsncrafts.com/2016/12/29/2017-occasions-catalog-sale-a-bration/ .You can also purchase the kit on a month to month basis, for this you can sign up at http://www.paperpumpkin.com. Be sure to pick me as your demonstrator (Darlene Seitz number 2096764).
If you do not want to make the entire craft, you can usually make some cards with the materials (or if you have left over material). These are the cards I made from some of the material. I did add some of my own materials. But, if you are an active Paper Pumpkin subscriber with me, I will send you some additional materials, pictures and instructions to make some cards that I have created.
There are so many different cards you could make. Just let your imagination take over.
If you would like more information of Paper Pumpkin (or anything craft related), just leave a comment on this blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for stopping by and as always,

December Paper Pumpkin kit (a monthly craft kit by StampinUp) is called Another Great Year and contained contents to create a mini scrapbook around your memories from 2016. I decided to use some of the supplies to do a regular scrapbook page. There are enough supplies left that I can still create a mini scrapbook or make some cards from the supplies. The supplies included a rotary stamp, a stampin write marker, washi tape, paper supplies to create the pages–double-sided patterned paper, window sheets,– silver foil stickers, regular stickers and rings to connect the pages. Here is a picture of what the kit includes and how the final product will look.
I also had a chance to do a couple cards with some of the supplies, adding some additional items to complete the cards for Valentine’s Day.
They are very similar. I added real red cardstock and some silver washi tape. On the one on the left, I stamped the lips and wording in real red and staz-on white ink. The stamps come from the new set Sealed With Love from the Occasions catalog just released. The one on the right I also added the real red paper, washi tape and only the small wording, but I also shaded the white heart and lines around with some Craft real red ink and then wiped some off.
Paper Pumpkin is also running a special right now. If you buy a 3 month prepaid subscription , the price is reduced from $59. to $55. AND you will receive a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. The items you can choose from include stamp sets, ribbon, designer Paper, card kit, and a tin to hold your cards. So if you have never tried Paper Pumpkin, now is a great time to try it. If you are already a customer, you can get a great deal on upcoming kits. This special deal lasts until March 31, 2017 but if you sign up today, you can start receiving your kits in February. To order this deal or any other items, please see my on line store at http://darleneseitz.stampinup.net or contact me directly by either leaving a comment on this post or send me an email at email@example.com.

Stampin Up has put their new Stitched Framelits out for sale now instead of waiting for next years catalog. Ovals, squares and circles come with the set (4 of each for a total of 12). All the framelits come with a stitched look around them, adding the perfect detailing to your project. In addition, they are offering several stamp sets that go perfectly with the framelits for 25% off. Some from the Holiday catalog and some from the Annual catalog. Above is the flyer showing the sets that are on sale. The 25% off sale runs through the end of the month.
In addition to the above great deal, Stampin’ Up is running an online extravaganza for black friday starting on Monday the 21th through the 28th. Some products are only discounted on the 21th and the 28th for 24 hours. Other products run for the entire week and are either 10, 20, 30 or 40% off! Please see online-extravagana-product-list-us-1-1 for details. Here is a picture of some of the deals for Monday, November 21th.
Let me recap some of the deals I think are great: The Big Shot Magnetic Platform will be 35% off on November 28th for 24 hours. The regular price is $40.00 and on that sale day will be $26.00. That’s a great deal for this must have. The Holly Berry punch, regularly $18.00 will be marked down all week to $10.80. The Stitched with Cheer project kit is also marked down all week from $24.00 to $14.40. This is really a great deal as you can make 18 cards for the holidays. You do need some additional supplies like ink, stamps and adhesive, but if you are local, I can provide them if we can get together to assemble the kit together. Stampin’ Up’s holiday card kits have been awesome in the past and this one is no exception. If you have ever wanted to try Paper Pumpkin, now is the time as there are a couple of kits (and some refills) being offered at 30% off. If you become a paper pumpkin subscriber I also provide additional materials to make some extra goodies with the kits. The Heart confetti border punch is also available all week for 30% off which is a must for Valentines’ projects.

Here is a card made from the stamp set Star of Light from Stampin Up. I used pool party and sweet sugarplum as the colors with frosted metallic sequins which come in the colors of soft sky (very close to pool party), sweet sugarplum and silver. I used the pool party and sweet sugarplum glitter ribbon as well. Then I added a few rhinestones . I just love these colors together and was inspired by the two glitter ribbons and sequins that I had. This is a beautiful stamp set that comes with 21 stamps including greetings. There is also a matching set of dies which includes 7 dies (see the next card below for use of die). This is such a great value and even better when you buy the two items together as a bundle. You get 10% off when you bundle.
This card was inspired and CASEd from Renee Torres and uses the same stamp set, Star of Light. In this one I used two dies from the Starlight Thinlits that match the stamp set. I used the same colors as the first one above. I stamped the star on pool party and then cut it out with one of the dies and cut the second layer of the star in white using another of the dies. I also used the Frosted Metallic Sequins on this card.
This last card is also made from the Star of Light stamp set. Here I used grey and pool party and the design was from the CASEing Tuesday challenge which used the card on page 48 of the Holiday Catalog (far left) as the sample. I used the large star stamp and added rhinestones to it. The layers are some DSP (no longer available) and the pool party glitter ribbon (on sale in our clearance rack for under $3.00). Then a layer of grey with the sentiment on it. I embossed the lower pool party layer with the Falling Snow Textured Embossing Folder found in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.
Please visit my online store at darleneseitz.stampinup.net if you are interested in buying this stamp set or matching dies. Also please check out the clearance rack for lots of great deals, many under $3.00. There are also other great holiday items in both the annual catalog and the holiday catalog. I also sell ready made cards, like the ones above in sets for the holidays and all year long for any occasion. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on this post and I will send you details and choices.
Hope you all are having a great weekend and as always,
