Hey there, everyone! I have THE CUTEST card to share with you today. I have two daughters who love Instagram and I thought they would enjoy this card. It turned out so cute it about made me squeal. I saw a video of someone’s swaps that were lying on a table and this jumped out at me, no mention was made as to who made it or how. I do know it was from a European convention. I just know that I loved it when I saw it and I knew my girls would, too. :)

We’ve been getting hammered with more snow, like most of the mid-western states. It is beautiful and I enjoy the winter wonderland (in moderation), but I know I’m speaking for many when I saw that spring can’t come soon enough. I’m ready to get outside and putter around in the garden. Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Well, it is best described in a story. (Think Cinderella) – I guess that was their inspiration when they named it. I was a bit baffled when I first heard the name, but it has begun to grow on me. Now, I think its kind of catchy and cute. Here is where to sign up: https://mypaperpumpkin.com?demoid=2127830
So, here is the story…
Once upon a time, there was a girl who needed a creativity escape.
- She didn’t have TIME to create (she was about to pull her hair out).
- She didn’t know WHAT to create (she’s spending hours on Pinterest).
- She didn’t want to buy a lot of stuff (her exercise room was full).
******Luckily, today was different********
It arrived on her doorstep. It’s name was Paper Pumpkin. It looked so good on the outside (in a fancy red box). But she LOVED what she saw on the inside when she opened it up…
It was filled with everything she needed: stamps, ink, paper and accessories – all cut, measured and ready to create a SWEET PROJECT.
No mess. No craft-aftermath.
She created. She smiled. She pinned the completed projects.
Her friends were so IMPRESSED!
This is HER story – - Now, let’s create YOURS!
Are you ready to sign up for your own creative escape with Paper Pumpkin?

Hi Everyone, I’m privilege to be the Guest Designer over at The Shabby Tea Room this week and we’re getting on our Pumpkin Spice. Yum! My absolute favorite autumn flavor! This week’s challenge is pumpkin and glitter using the photo below as your inspiration. Doesn’t it look delicious? Check out the link HERE for all of the details to play along and also for the linky to post your project. I’ve made a treat box, well, two actually. I just couldn’t make up my mind which paper I liked best. I’ve used a cut file (Design ID #31294) on my Silhouette Cameo as the base so it came together really fast. Hope you like it.
Be sure and mark your challenge as Week #190
I’ve added glittery Stickles around the round circles.

Thanks for stopping by today and thank you to the Shabby Tea Room for the fun challenge and also for the privilege of being your Guest Designer for the week. It has been a lot of fun!
Have a great week, Everyone.
Throughout the month of November, I’ve challenged myself to think each day and journal about one thing for which I’m thankful for (no trouble there). I’m inviting you, my subscribers/followers to participate with me. I’m using a project life-style format, but you could use a notebook, Smash book or any other type of art journal that you would like. The main thing is just to stop and think about things we so often take for granted.
Please watch the video below (or on my YouTube channel
My Journal is a Bo Bunny Misc Me! Cest La Vie 8″ x 9″ Binder with 3 rings
I’m also using all of the coordinating insert pages for this collection.
Hi Everyone, super fast post today. I wanted to share with you a journal that I embellished and added a burlap pen holder to. I also customized the pen. You know the RSVP pens that have the nice hollow barrel that you can slot your own pretty paper down into? =) Love those! If you haven’t heard of them, you can pick them up online (just search RSVP pen) or in the States at Wal-Mart. I wish I would have taken a close-up photo of the barrel of the pen before I sent it off so I could show you what I mean, but you can see it in the video below. Hope you enjoy this cute, quick little project. It makes a wonderful gift. Great for birthdays or the upcoming holidays. I picked this one up at Michaels some time back. Its the kind that has a magnetic closure on the right. Anyway, the video HERE explains everything pretty well, but if you have any questions, let me know.
The journal measures about 6″ x 8″
Here is the video (if you are getting this post via e-mail, you can watch the video HERE).
