Cooking and cards

Hello! Here in the US, we’re celebrating Thanksgivind Day tomorrow, and even though Thanksgiving is going to be a much smaller affair than usual this year, I still am in the midst of preparing a traditional dinner- turkey with dressing and gravy, potatoes, veggies, cranberry sauce, and pie. More importantly, though, I’m making a list of the things for which I am grateful. As always, family and friends top the list, and I’ve also been making Christmas cards to send to those I care about in the next couple of weeks. I subscribe to Stampin’ Up!’s monthly Paper Pumpkin kit so that I can share the kits with my customers, some of whom are new to stamping/cardmaking, but kits are not just for beginners! Also, kits can be great for scrapbooking- there are so many fun elements.

The gift card holders on the right are made from the December kit, and I used some elements to make a notecard, too.
These cards were from the November kit. The Paper Pumpkin kits are all-inclusive- stamps, ink, embellishments, cards, and envelopes.

While the Paper Pumpkin kits are something of a surprise every month, Stampin’ Up! sells kits in the catalogs that show exactly what you are getting. Some are all-inclusive, while others complement a stamp set. I show a few examples below, but check out the others at in our online store. If you live in the US and don’t already have a demonstrator, I would be grateful for the chance to be your creative coach- just choose Michelle Rougeux when they ask for your demonstrator’s name.

For my compatriots in the US, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. For all of my readers, I wish you health and happiness as this difficult year comes to a close. Keep sharing joy through your cards and paper-crafting. Thanks for stopping by!


Success! You're on the list.
