Hope Box – August Paper Pumpkin Card Kit

I am very excited to give you a sneak peak at the upcoming Paper Pumpkin kit called Hope Box. This kit was created from the heart and soul of Stampin’ Up! cofounder, Shelli Gardner and she designed it to remind us why life is precious. It includes supplies to create nine encouraging 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ cards in a beautiful box designed to be a keepsake box.

Keep mementos of cherished memories or reminders of what’s yet to come in this beautiful box that you can decorate with various components that come with this kit. Collect treats and trinkets (letters, song lyrics, inspiring quotes, photographs, etc.) that represent what hope means to you in your Hope Box and look inside for inspiration or share it with a friends who could use some uplifting! 

For more inspiration on how to build your Hope Box, watch Shelli herself put one together in this video

July Paper Pumpkin – The Adventure Begins

Hello! Time to show off the July paper pumpkin kit and my alternative card designs. This is perfect for the summer and to share with your camping friends.

Here is a slide show of the 8 different cards I made using this month’s paper pumpkin kit.

I also made a short video to show you the cards, but I did not really do a full tutorial for how I made each card…that would have been a VERY long video! So, instead I just explained what I did with each card. Hopefully that helps. Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions about how these cards were created…so happy to share more with you if you’d like.

And, here’s a link to my video

Bloom Where you are Planted

Hello everyone! Today I finally found some time to play with a new bundle/suite that I ordered a few weeks ago from Stampin’ Up called Bloom Where you are Planted. First of all, I’m a total flower and plant person. I have several potted plants inside my home and I also love to grow my own vegetables…as long as I can keep the rabbits away! So, when I saw this suite, I knew I had to have it. Secondly, it also makes great masculine cards which I can never seem to have enough of.

So, let me introduce you to this Suite. You can buy the suite for $65.00 which gets you the stamps, dies, coordinating designer series paper and a package of 10 paper lattice sheets that are great for accenting your cards with. Or, if you just want the stamps and dies, I would recommend buying the bundle which saves you 10%. The stamp and die bundle is only $47.50!

I created a video (link below) showing you how to create this card that I made with this suite. The sentiments in this stamp set are versatile…you could change out the “Love you” to a “thank you” and have a beautiful thank you card on hand for when you need one quickly. Or…turn it into masculine birthday card by adding a Happy Birthday sentiment on the front or on the inside.

Here are a few more cards that I made using this set. The options are bountiful!

Hand-Penned Petals Suite & Coordinating Project Kit

Today I am showcasing the new Hand-Penned Petals Suite which is so stunningly beautiful, you are not going to want to miss this one. If you like florals, you are going to LOVE this paper. So delicate and pretty…I just can’t get enough of it – in fact I just placed an order for two more packs of the paper – so don’t delay! I would not be surprised if this paper sells out fast.

When you purchase this suite, which retails for $66.25 I will send you the card kit class for FREE! (You must order under my current host code so I know to send you the kit.) Included in the suite is the stamp set and coordinating die set, as well as the gorgeous 12×12 paper pack and a full pack of beautiful gem embellishments.

The card kit I will send you will have make-n-take packets with all the paper and embellishments you need to create three beautiful cards and one 3D project. Each project comes with its own set of full color instructions. Note: The card kit projects will not have stamped images, but all the die cuts and bits you need to create each project will be included.

If you already own this suite, you can still get the project kit in two ways.

1. Spend $65.00 in my online store on any products you choose and I will send you the project kit for free. (pay no shipping). You MUST use the current host code so I know you want the kit. VTVKNBUY
