Sorry if I haven’t been blogging since before Christmas, but I’m still not used to this new blog, wish Stampin’Up! would have just upgraded our old blog system instead of shutting it down! Oh well, out with the old and in with the NEW! I just need to play with it more, OR find a blog that is easier for beginners! lol
So have you all seen the New Occasions mini catalogue yet? How about the 2020 Sale-a-Bration flyer? We’ve got some catching up to do, so here we go!
And now for the fun part! Earning FREE products!!!
During Sale-a-Bration (Jan 3 – March 31, 2020), you can earn FREE products with every $60 purchase! So with a $120 purchase, you can either choose 2 of the $60 level items, or you can choose a $120 Level item for your FREE product! Check it out in the flyer…
Until March 31, 2020, you can also purchase, while supplies last, some coordinating products!
Click HERE to view the PDF with all these products, and I added the names and page numbers of which products they coordinate with from the SAB & Mini-catalogues.
Why host a Stamping event with friends?
Because you could earn this cute Little Ladybug Stamp set for FREE! As a Hostess during SAB, you can earn this for FREE with a $375 party!
You can invite some friends over to your house or mine for an fun stamping event, or, you can simply ask your friends to help you earn it by placing an order with you, and once you reach $375, you’ve got it! And that’s not even counting the other stampin’ rewards you get as a Hostess!
I still have available dates in March, so we can set a date now & talk about the projects, cards or scrapbooking or 3D projects, your party, your choice!
Aren’t these cute???
Join my Creative Chicks Team by March 31, 2020…
I created these cards when I found a beautiful set of cards online, made by Lynn Dunn at stamptasticdesigns.com
It was super fast to make, and you can do them in any color you want, by using the coordinating cardstock & ink pads!
You can get a FREE kit to make these 4 cards from home by ordering the Painted Poppies stamp set by Feb 13th or if you order online by Feb 15th, using the HOST CODE # UZ2Y2JRA
Note about your FREE card kit:
It will include the precut & scored cardstock & die-cut pieces, but nothing stamped, as per SU! policies. So you’ll use your own stamp sets for that, including the greetings. The greetings I used are from the Peaceful Moments stamp set & the French Happy Birthday to you SAB stamp set that anyone can get FREE with a $60 purchase! But you can use whatever you have at home. I heat embossed in white on basic black cardstock and fussy-cut around. Basic Black Cardstock Scraps will be included as well.
Also, if you don’t have the ink pad colors that I used, Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay & Pool Party. I will happily substitute with the colors you want.
Painted Poppies stamp set 151599 $31
But if you order the BUNDLE, you actually get a double kit, so you will get the supplies to create 8 cards, PLUS, this would qualify you for a FREE Sale-a-Bration product of your choice too! I will get all card kits ready when we return from vacation after next week, and if you live out-of-town, it will get mailed to you with Canada Post, so make sure I have your correct mailing address on file.

Just a follow-up to my first crop that I held in PEI last weekend. It was such a great turnout with lots of fun & laughter with 24 local scrapbookers there! The only sad part was that it went by so fast! We’ll need to add an extra day next time, hey girls? LOL But I wouldn’t have done it without my good friend, Diane Stewart! She worked really hard with me the previous week while we were getting this all ready, and then the day prior with all the packing up, since the orders only got to my house on Thursday for the 24 goodie bags, door prizes & products for the optional classes! It got delayed due to severe weather in the US! grrrrr! But with her help, we got it done & were able to make it there even if we got our first snow that started on Thursday evening! wow! Snow on Nov 7th was not in our plans! lol
So I plan on doing it again in the future, but probably a little earlier in the fall or maybe even coming in the Spring, we’ll see! 😉
So the crop fee was $100, which gave everyone a good space to crop for Friday evening & all day Saturday from 9am-9pm, the hall was a great spot, with lots of room and great lighting!
And they all received a goodie bag just like this…
Make’n take projects…
These are the pages & cards they got to create together. Don’t you love those cute snowmen?
And we had a few bingo sheets going around Friday & Saturday, and these were the lucky winners for Free SU! products:
Heather B & Marilyn both won $50, Shelley C & Maria both won $55, and Shelly S & Barb W both won $40 each! Congrats to you ladies!!! 🙂
But nobody left without winning something, everyone had a door prize! 🙂
At my retreats, I always offer optional classes, pages & cards, so these are the ones I had for this crop…
Once again Ladies, thank you so much for joining me for my first PEI crop, you were a fun team! Now you can expect your new goodies in the next week or so, Marcella & Heather will be in touch when they get your bag!
Until next time, feel free to contact me anytime if you have questions or would like to order more goodies for your future crafting projects!
It’s not too late to join us! If you’d like to get a spot, just send me an email with your info and your payment by etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org

Have a great weekend everyone & keep’on Stamping!
We design & prepare everything you need to create a beautiful project with your friends and tuck it inside a cute, red box—so you don’t have to worry about a thing. And because the projects are fun and easy, everyone is sure to enjoy a successful crafting experience. You can either organize this as a private party on your own with friends, or I can come over to help, it’s up to you! Here’s some easy steps to hosting a Paper Pumpkin party…
Pretend that’s me with the long dark hair… haha!
STEP 1: SELECT A PAPER PUMPKIN KIT FOR YOUR EVENT.
Choosing the kit is easy, you can always check the online store for past kits and refills. Or if you are a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber, you can add a couple kits to your next subscription shipment. You can do this by logging into your account on paperpumpkin.com and adjusting your kit quantity.
Another option might be asking your guests to subscribe themselves so they can bring their own kit to your event. Or, a final option would be to let me know how many kits you’ll need, and I can order them with my subscription and have your guests prepay by the 10th of that month. A full kit comes to $34.50 (tax & shipping included) And besides the material needed for the projects, it also comes with a full stamp set + ink spot, so everyone goes home with one to make all kinds of projects!
STEP 2: INVITATIONS
Great! You’ve decided to hold a Paper Pumpkin event. Now you’ll need invitations!
We suggest keeping it simple. Invite five but not more than 15 people to your event. Paper Pumpkin kits are guaranteed to include at least eight projects in every kit and may have 20 or more.
Invite your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, church members, etc. Also, depending on the kit and what you want from your party, your guests might want to bring their kids! (We’ve discovered that kids love Paper Pumpkin, too!)
Send invitations via Facebook, text, or e-invite. You can also download and print our Paper Pumpkin PDF invitation. Just fill it out and send it off. Or if you’re really feeling creative, make handmade invitations.
STEP 3: PREPARE FOR THE EVENT
Preparing for the event can be a lot of fun! I’ll have sample made from my Kit, or if you just wanna do the party on your own with your friends, you can simply tell me how many kits you’d like, and you would use your own kit to create your samples (Don’t worry—instructions are included!) Once you’re done, you’ll know how to make the project, and your guests will have samples so they can see what they’re going to create. Be sure to display your projects so everyone can see them.
Another extremely important preparation tip is to reach out a day or two before the event and remind your guests about your party. Remember, everyone’s different: Some like a Facebook message, others prefer a text, and some want a personal phone call. A simple reminder can be the difference between having two or three guests at your party or ten!
STEP 4: EVENT SET-UP/PLACE SETTINGS
Paper Pumpkin has everything you need to create your projects, but you might want to have a few extra supplies on hand for your event. Here are a few examples.
- Simply Shammy or Stampin’ Scrub & mist
- Bone Folder
- Extra blocks
- Paper Snips
After you have assembled everything you need for your party, prepare place settings for your guests. Be sure that each person has what they need to make the project(s).
STEP 5: HOSTING THE EVENT
The fun begins! First, we’ll welcome your guests and provide basic direction and/or demonstration based on group size and experience. You’ll sit with them to create the projects together, you’ll get to socialize, and we’ll help your guests as needed.
Most of all, enjoy spending time with your guests. Make sure everyone feels included and is having a good time. They’ll go home with an amazing project they made all by themselves, AND they’ll be ready to do it all over again next month! Yes, we can do this monthly, as Paper Pumpkin offers a different kit every month, and it’s always a fun surprise to open that red box!
Looks like you’re ready to have a fun crafting party with Paper Pumpkin! We’re sure your guests will have a fantastic time. Be sure to create a post on social media and use the hashtag #paperpumpkin. We want to see how it went!
