June 2024 Paper Pumpkin

Life is Sweet Paper Pumpkin kit features the new In Colors.



Thanks & Beyond

Item 164397

Express your gratitude and add something special to each of your crafting projects with the Thanks & Beyond Dies! Cut out a butterfly outline and a separate detailed piece that nests inside to create a partial pop-up feature. You can also add the sentiment to any card front or use the hexagon label for whatever you need. We love how these dies offer more options to not only three Paper Pumpkin kits but also any other crafting projects. Please note that the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine is not included and can be purchased separately.

Add-on includes:
* 4 dies

Make the most of your Paper Pumpkin kit with a Paper Pumpkin add-on! Combine this additional set of dies with the Delicate Wings, The Best There Is, and Life Is Sweet Paper Pumpkin Kit for an extension of the kit's crafting experience. Pair with our other products for even more creative options!

Glass Mat returns!

The long awaited announcement of the Glass mat has arrived.  The Glass mat will be available to customers starting July 3, 2024.  Be sure to order that day if you want it; many many customers have been waiting on this item to return.



Each week, I will update any new announcements made by Stampin' Up!

Coming Soon!

Next month, JULY, I will be starting my Christmas Card Club class.  This class is a $25.00 class each month and you will make 20 cards (10 of 2 designs) each month through December 2024.  (I know the price went up but so did the cost of all my supplies; so it was necessary to increase the price of the class. Also, I should mention 20 cards for $25.00 is still a bargain! especially when you took the time to make them!)


I already have a new Christmas set that Stampin' Up! will be offering; so get a sneak peak by signing up for the July Christmas Card Club Class.  It will be held the 3rd Monday of each month at The Steel Native in East Liverpool, Ohio, starting July 2024.  Can't make it to my location but want to have a class?  I will travel (within reason) to your location--invite a couple of friends to take the class with you!
