Happy February!  Hope the month is starting out right.

I just finished a busy weekend in San Jose with my daughter.  She attended her first dance convention and competition of the year.  Her team debuted new dance routines, and she also performed her new solo for the first time!  It was all very exciting.  All the girls did well and were pleased with their performances.  You can’t ask for much more than that.

Paper Pumpkin:

Sale-A-Bration is now in full swing.  One of the specials being offered is a 3-month prepaid subscription to Paper Pumpkin for only $55!  (That’s reduced from the regular price of $59.85.)  And, since it’s over $50, it  qualifies you to earn a free Sale-A-Bration product.  How awesome is that?

But that’s not all.  When you sign up for Paper Pumpkin with me as your demonstrator, you get extra perks.  For example each month, I’ll send you free tutorials for alternative projects you can make with the kit with some extra supplies.  Even if you don’t have the exact supplies used in the tutorials, you can substitute what you do have.  The ideas in these tutorials are totally exclusive.  You won’t find them on any social media sites.  And I’m telling you, they are super creative!!!!  I belong to a group of demonstrators that get together each month to create this document.  I feel privileged to be a member, because the talent is flowing!  You are going to LOVE these ideas.

Here’s a sneak peek of a few of the projects from this month’s tutorials:

Does this sound like too much fun?  Look at the Paper Pumpkin Tab on my blog for more information and subscribe today.  You can start out with a monthly subscription or purchase a discounted prepaid subscription (links below).  There is no obligation to continue if you change your mind.  Also, if something comes up (vacation or just a busy month) you can choose to  skip a month.

Note:  While the 3-month subscription listed below shows at full price, the discount will appear at checkout.

Sale-A-Bration Inspiration:

One of the Sale-A-Bration items this year is Memories In The Making Project Life Specialty Card Collection.  If you aren’t into Project Life, you might skip right over this item.  But, think twice!  Whether you enjoy making Project Life memory pages or not, this item is THE BOMB!  It includes all sorts of acetate cards printed in metallic (gold on one side and silver on the other), as well as pre-embossed cards, including ones you can color with sponges or watercoloring.  Just thumbing through the 30 different cards, my mind was buzzing with ideas.

For my card today, I simply took three of the Memories In the Making Project Life Specialty Cards and cut them with various Circles Collection Framelits Dies.  Then, I layered them with some Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper, Metallic Doilies, Metallic Thread.  This was a super quick and easy card to make!

For my greeting, I embossed “My Valentine” from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set in gold on Mossy Meadow cardstock, and then created a small wrap around banner using a Triple Banner Punch.

While I’m not the best at sitting down and making Project Life memory pages (I’m more of a digital scrapbooking gal), I absolutely love this collection of PL specialty cards to use as accents for greeting cards.  I’m excited to dive into the pre-embossed ones next!
