Paper Pumpkin, Half Off & Weekly Deals!

Woohoo!  I'm almost done!  Over the past 10 days, we've had 2 graduations, Mother's Day, our 30th Anniversary, company from coast to coast, a reception for our retiring band director, end of the year plays, musicals, Girl Scouts and more.  I've had just a bit of time to prepare for some classes, but I can see the end.  I'm hoping to get back to posting more often and getting some stamping done!

I received my Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail the other day and had some time yesterday to play with it.  I love this one!  I made up all my bags and cards and have them stashed away for special occasions.  Here are a few photos and a video on the project.

I love this part - opening the box and it's all wrapped up nicely!

Here's everything that came in the kit.  

I made up the 4 gift bags - adorable!!

Here are my six cards and 4 bags - all finished!
Here is the video, but be sure to click on the blog title to view it.  

Here are two more samples made with the stamp set and ink that came in the kit.

I used the stampin' spot ink pad to make the squares on the left side of the card.  

This is the bonus project I sent to my subscribers.  I love the script in the stamp set.

Weekly Deals!

These last 2 months of the school year have been crazy!  I finished up with the band year books yesterday by distributing them to the kids.  I think they were really happy with them and were impressed that I was able to add some video from earlier in the year.  I heard someone say,"ooooo...technology" which made me laugh.  I also finished up 11 prom mini albums last night and Samantha is giving them to her friends today.  We had registration at ASU for Samantha this morning, so she has her ID and is all set to go.  I finished cutting and prepping for a class today in Kennett, MO (see you soon ladies!) and then have to spend the remainder of my day working on the graduating Girl Scout video which needs to be done for Friday.  I'm also putting together a reception for our band director who is retiring this year, so that will take some time.  I think after the middle of May, I'll be okay and will be able to actually post some things again.  Please have patience with me and I'll try to be back soon.

Here are a few reminders before I post the weekly deals:

April Paper Pumpkin & Updated Clearance Rack!

Before I get to today's samples, I want to let you know that our Clearance Rack has been updated with some new projects, so make sure to check it out here!

The yearbooks are supposed to arrive tomorrow - I'm so excited that they arrived so soon!  I've been catching up on everything for the end of the year activities.  I sent out Samantha's graduation announcements today and made up my Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I'll show you her graduation announcement tomorrow, so today I'm sharing my April Paper Pumpkin kit projects.  I mailed out the bonus project today and on my instructions, you'll see I wrote May - cross that off and write in April! I've been checking my May calendar and trying to get everything on there.  So here is the kit:

The kit opened.  
Here are my projects:
(I added a couple extra pearls in the flowers)

(I added pearls in the flowers)

(Yes, pearls in the flowers - again).  I also punched a flower with the Boho Blossoms Punch out of the bow paper.

I used just the envelope as a treat holder for some biscotti cookies, then punched a couple flowers using the Petite Petals Punch, then added a rhinestone.  

Added some rhinestones to the center of the Crushed Curry bow.  
I used the Flower Frenzy Die & Petite Petals Punch to make the flower.  

Just punched a few 1/4" holes in the right side of this one.  Can you tell I stamped "MOM" upside down to make "WOW"?  It works, I think, well....almost....

I cut up one of the cards and made these 2 cards:

I used a Crushed Curry CS base, then Gold Glimmer Paper and Whisper White card stock with the Stars Framelits Collection.  

I added the double flower (as used above), with a button from SAB 
The Flower Frenzy Die & Boho Blossoms Punch are both retiring, so make sure to order while you can!
