Sew Easy Paper Pumpkin Kit and April Blog Candy Winner

Mini Album, March 2015 Paper Pumpkin, Graduation gift


Hello Stampers! I am back with a little mini-album that I made out of March’s Paper Pumpkin kit! This is SEW easy to make! I made this in literally a few minutes, using my daughter’s school colors. The school mascot is a Husky, which is the reason for the paw print. I couldn’t decide whether I should actually sew the YOU but thought I wouldn’t on the first one. I think it still turned out great without it. Now for the rest of the album:

Paper Pumpkin, March 2015, Mini Album, Graduation gift

The album is now ready for my daughter’s photos (her phone is full of them!) and her treasured quotes and memories of her senior year of high school. Of course, I think this album could be used for so many other ideas and would love to hear what would you use this for?

Update on the Butterflies Thinlits and a Special Offer!

Stampin’ Up! had hoped that the Butterflies Thinlits Dies would arrive in time for Sale-A-Bration, and when that didn’t happen, they hoped they would be here in time for the Free Shipping promotion. Originally they were scheduled to arrive by April 8; then received notification from their supplier that although the ship had reached the west coast port, the container containing the Thinlits was still on the ship. Stampin’ Up! has received notice from the supplier that the container with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies was finally unloaded from the ship; however, there is a shortage of trucks, which has delayed the container being picked up. A truck was finally secured to pick up the container, and, as of now, it is scheduled to be delivered to Stampin’ Up! today. Woohoo!

Stampin’ Up! does realize you may have been disappointed you were not able to purchase the Thinlits in time to receive Sale-A-Bration rewards–especially in the discounted bundles. Therefore, from the day Butterflies Thinlits are again available through April 30, we are bringing you two special offers:

  1. Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount–just $21.20!
  2. Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at the already-discounted price and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!

Take advantage of this special offer NOW! They won’t last long!! Click on my SHOP button and order now. Your online order is the best and easiest way to order AND makes you eligible for Secret Stamper Rewards!


So, I hope you liked my Paper Pumpkin project today! If you did, please take a minute and leave me a comment! I love hearing from you!
