Chalk it Up to Love

So this happened . . .

Olivia GraceWe welcomed our third grandchild, our first granddaughter, to the family this week.  We are all over the moon for Olivia Grace and I am loving being able to shop for pink and frilly things.

Speaking of pink and frilly, have you seen the August My Paper Pumpkin Kit?  I dare you to watch this video without drooling over its cuteness.

We all want to get off Pinterest and get our craft on but who has the time and energy, right?  Wrong!  My Paper Pumpkin it is creativity in a box!  Each month a fully designed project kit arrives at your door with stamps, ink and paper – everything cut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun!  Add a pair of snips and you’re good-to-go any time and any place.

Cheer All Year – Really!


The card I’m sharing with you today was created by the Stampin’ Up! Creative Design Team.  It uses the Cheer All Year stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog and gives your projects some seasonal flair. At first look this is a holiday stamp set but as this card shows, you don’t have to put it away at the end of the year.  Just a simple “Hello” sentiment makes this a fun feathery card you can share all year long!  My favorite thing . . . the gold embossed feather tip!
