Paper Pumpkin, a gift of fall

Details

Now is the time to try something new and exciting. The August Paper Pumpkin is an all inclusive kit that comes with everything you need to make 6 gift bags and 12 gift tags which is a perfect way to personalize your christmas gifts. I cannot believe I am saying that in July but time has a way of creeping up on you.

This wonderful kit coordinates beautifully with the Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle. This is a separate purchase of just $13.00 CAD and is not part of the August Paper Pumpkin kit and it is only only available to Paper Pumpkin subscribers. Important note: The Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle is not needed to complete the August kit projects.

Once you have completed the August kit, you will have extra kit components so you can easily combine them with the add-on bundle to make some beautiful cards.

This add-on is available beginning August 1, while supplies last so take advantage while you can. It includes 24 card bases of 2 different designs with coordinating envelopes.

Coordinating colors: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Merry Merlot, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock, and Soft Suede

Wedding gift

Wedding or anniversaries are to be celebrated and remembered. I made up this 12 x 12 picture frame using the beautiful Magnolia designer series paper from the Stampin’ Up! annual catalogue. I left the green squares blank so special pictures can be added later. A perfect keepsake to commemorate the special occasion.

With Bonus Days going on during the month of July, now is the perfect time to stock up on crafting supplies.  If you are unfamiliar with this promotion, for every $60 cad you spend before July 31 (before shipping and tax) earns a $6 cad Bonus Days coupon code that can be redeemed during August 1–31. There is no limit to how many coupons you can earn in July and then you get to cash them in in August for even more products. So how great is that?

Keeping cool in the heat wave

Hi everyone, well we are certainly experiencing some hot weather this week. Given the Canadian winters, I have no problem with this. I was golfing last night with my ladies golf league in 38C humidity, and drinking lots of water. I even won the 50/50 draw so all in all, it was a good day.

At home I am staying inside in the air conditioning and doing what I love, crafting. I have a card class next week so was finishing up some of the prep work required. Below are the three cards we will be making. Each one is unique and requires different techniques which I like to demonstrate. If you have an interest in learning new techniques or would like to get together just to socialize while we make cards, please register on my blog. Next Class is Aug 14th and spots are limited.

BONUS DAYS ARE COMING

Now is the perfect time to stock up on Stampin’Up! products and build your crafting supplies. Bonus Days is coming back next week, and that means it’s almost time for you to start earning coupon codes which you can redeem in August for additional products. So how cool is that?

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

]For every $50 usd/$60 cad you spend between July 1–31 (before shipping and tax), you will earn a $5 usd/$6 cad Bonus Days coupon code that can be redeemed anytime between August 1–31. There is no limit to how many coupon codes you can earn.
