And, a few other things are going on as well! You have a few days left to get the January Paper Pumpkin - Key to My Heart. January 10 is the last day!

The kit represents the tradition of locking a padlock on a bridge to symbolize unbreakable love. It includes everything you need to create 9 love-themed cards, 3 each of 3 designs with coordinating envelopes, special padlock and key die cuts, adhesive, vellum and more! See below for the bonus heart shaped boxes that you can add on! Item 162417, $11. Available NOW.

Remember you have two ways to buy Paper Pumpkin. Direct at my site here and you'll be billed monthly $23.50 (including shipping). Or you can buy prepaids in the store and then redeem at My Paper Pumpkin site. Doing this gets you FREE SAB items and possibly Host $$ if you do the 12 month or other items! See the graphic below! There are currently TWO Sale-A-Bration periods each year so personally I do the 6 month now and again in July or August!

Lastly, there is a new Kit available today!! I like it!! 

Item 162361, $13 USD. Supplies to create 9 cards, 3 each of 3 designs. Printed die-cut words, precut pieces, adhesive, white baker's twine and iridescent diamond sequins. Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade and Tahitian Tide!

2023 Calendar

Hey, all! Happy New Year!! A little creativity for me to get it started - yeah! I've had a desk calendar for several years that started with a Paper Pumpkin kit. I've recreated it several times, but it required a pdf for the "calendar" part that someone else created. That is a skill I do not have so went looking for other options. I'll drop a couple of the previous ones below!! So this year, I found a printable 2023 one page calendar (thank you Pinterest!) 

2022 Calendar

2021 Calendar

2019 Calendar

I knew I wanted to use the upcoming SAB item, Dainty Flowers DSP. Gorgeous paper, so very little stamping! I still have the set from the Paper Pumpkin for the months and accents on dates. Here is a look at the calendar sitting on my desk.

And the side view

I picked 6 colors from the DSP pack and cut two bases of each color. Then I pulled several of the DSP sheets and started cutting. That is always tough to make that first cut! First up, the "large flower" print. Love this and it was also hard to cover most of it up! Note, click the pics to enlarge if you need to see more details. I wasn't up to scanning/cleaning up 12 pictures so I cheated and did groups of 3 :)

Starry Sky, Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry. The color rectangle is from the Scalloped Contours die set and I then cut the white rectangle to sit just inside the dotted line. The calendar part is a little bigger than I would have preferred, but it was already printed and cut before I realized that and I was NOT starting over! I put a coordinating ribbon under each and added a few accents in the open areas.

Next, an all-over flower print.

These are pretty simple and sweet! Coordinating ribbon, no accents needed as the background as filled with flowers! Fresh Freesia, Mossy Meadow and Crushed Curry.

Same for the next group, a smaller all over flower print. Simple ribbon accent was all that was needed.

Rich Razzleberry, Starry Sky and Old Olive.

Lastly, one of the prints was a scatter/blot and I love those. Also great for variety!

Colors here, Fresh Freesia, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. A few accents on these - just for fun!

The flower on all of these is from an upcoming set - Dainty Delight that coordinates with the so fun DSP! Excited to make some cards with it too!!!

Thanks all for stopping by! Some products linked below, but I can't yet link the DSP or stamp set! New Mini and Sale-A-Bration are LIVE Thursday, January 5th!
