Each month I eagerly wait for the mailman to deliver my Paper Pumpkin kit.  

What's inside is always a surprise! Most months there are cards. Some months there are 3D projects.

The best part is that each month I receive a new stamp set. It's a great way to build my inventory each month, without an added expense.  The kit also includes a new ink each month and all the pre-cut supplies and embellishments to finish the project.  You only need scissors!  There's no cutting, scoring or measuring. Everything is done so I can skip to the fun part!

I also enjoy coming up with several alternate project ideas from each month's kit.  Those projects are photographed, a PDF tutorial created and shared with my Paper Pumpkin subscribers for free.  I call it my Paper Pumpkin Parade!  It's one great alternate idea after another - and my way of saying 'thank you' for their subscription.  

The May Paper Pumpkin kit was called Sprinkled with Love.  Here's a peek at what we got!

And here's a sneak peek of the alternate project ideas!

Ten days ago I help my semi-annual stamping retreat.  These all day stamping events include meals, a theme, door prizes, a product goodie bag, make & takes, games, gifts and fun!

Retreats are a ton of work.  The planning begins 5 months in advance. The biggest issue is always finding the venue.  I have used the Brandon Elks Lodge for several years and have loved our experience there.  The room is enormous, the food is delicious, prepared on premises by the Ladies of the Elks, and the service is top notch.  

Here's a collage of my room layout. (Click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.)

Although I'm on a very tight budget for decor I love the treasure hunt of finding the right props to add credence to the overall feel of the event. My sweet friend, Kellie, has horses at her home and was kind enough to loan me nearly all the decor I used. Getting saddle stands, straw, etc. to the Elks Lodge was a challenge so I rented a 10' U-haul box truck.  First time I've ever driven anything that size - and I surprised myself.  I did well!

I love spoiling my customers!  Keeping with my western theme, I used the Paisleys & Posies stamp set and created these bottle tags to designate their stamping station.  Those white dots around the paisleys - that's white chalk marker - and yes, I dotted every single paisley, one at a time, times 30 name tags.  You may say I'm crazy but I love to create!

Another gift came at lunch time. These mini burlap sacks held dry-roasted peanuts.  I used the Country Livin' stamp set to create an easy tag.  The red gingham fabric is actually strips of a placemat I found.

After dinner I left another goodie at their station. These denim pockets were made by my friend Alice and sewn onto cardstock. I purchased bandanas in bulk on Amazon and cut them so they'd fit in the pocket.  The Sale-A-Bration Metallic Ribbon was attached with a Glue Dot along with a silver foil star punched from the Medium Star Punch.    I filled the pockets with Linen Thread.

It made the perfect departing gift!

My customers were encouraged to create their own western theme name tag. If they did, they received an additional door prize ticket. These are just a few of the amazing creations.

The best part of these events are the wonderful people I get to spend the day with.  If you look at the picture below, I'm pictured on the far right with my assistant, Beverly. I could not do these events without her. She's such a huge blessing and a super hard worker.

Unfortunately this is our last retreat at the Elks Lodge due to a substantial rental increase.  Many thanks to the Brandon Elks Lodge for their hospitality and service. We will miss you!

Thankfully I have found a new venue and I've revamped this event so we can still enjoy a full day of stamping and fun.  

Check out my Autumn Extravaganza scheduled for Saturday, October 21st! I'd sure love to have you join us.  

But hurry, there are only a few seats left to reserve - these retreat stampers already scooped up 32 spaces!

What is Paper Pumpkin?

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly paper crafting subscription that's shipped right to your door. $19.95 covers it all.  Shipping is included in that price! (Local sales tax will apply).

Every month the kit is a surprise. Some months there are cards, other months include a 3D project. There's so few surprises left in the world these days so Paper Pumpkin keeps things fun and exciting!

The best part about each kit is that they contain all the pre-cut supplies, ink and stamps you'll need to create that month's project. Since the kits include a new stamp set and ink each month, it's a great way to build up your supplies! The kit includes step by step color pictures that are simple to follow - even a child can do it!

Subscriptions can be suspended at any time without penalty. You can choose to subscribe for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months. 

The 3 month subscription is on sale through March 31st for only $55 - AND, it includes your choice of a FREE Sale-A-Bration product!  You can add a subscription to any online order, too!  

PLUS, all my online ordering REWARDS apply, too!

I love creating 3D projects. I enjoy them just as much as I do creating hand stamped cards.  I especially like that I can create themed projects for parties or holidays that are one-of-a-kind.

Today's video tutorial uses the Basket Bunch Bundle. If you missed it, this Bundle was part of my Studio Stamps in the Mail (SSITM) this month.  Although ordering for this month's SSITM has ended, the tutorial for the cards are available in my Project PDF Tutorial library HERE.  

I'm having so much fun with this Bundle because the images and verbiage are versatile.  Photopolymer images make them easy to stamp, and, coupled with coordinating framelits for every image, you'll never fussy cut anything!

Today's video will also teach you a new way to create a bow.  I call it a "tuxedo bow".  With this bow, you'll never have to worry about it being too big, having uneven loops or being lop-sided.  

Be sure to scroll down and see the pictures, cutting dimensions and supplies I've included for this project.
