Stamp and Scrapbook Expo is Today!

My living room was set up as kit central as I was preparing for this event, way back in November. The kit features our square acetate gift box decorated with lots of hearts in red and white and a gift note.

If you would like to recreate the project at home, here are the supplies to order:

square acetate gift box

square vellum doilies

real red satin ribbon

red jewels

real red cardstock

basic white cardstock

Flowers for Every Season patterned paper

Heart Punch Pack

Classic Label Punch

Make sure your order qualifies for my Show Special!

I’ll email you links to my Youtube videos showing how to assemble the make and take kits after I receive your order. OR, meet me on Zoom to assemble along with me. Zoom Socials are Wednesday, January 27th, 9-10am and 6:30-7:30pm central time.

In addition, Stampin’ Up! will reward you with a minimum of $50 in orders too! It’s Sale-a-bration time where free, exclusive products are offered with every $50 purchase! See the free product options at my online store here. If the gift box circle turns bright pink from gray at my online store, that means you have rewards to redeem. So please look for the gift box circle to redeem all your rewards!

Click the links below to watch my segment today at 1:10pm central time. I will also be featuring bonus demonstrations using Sale-a-bration products during my segment.

One Papercrafting Paper Pumpkin Kit, could it be yours?


GM, If you are looking for something to do or know of someone you would like to surprise with a paper crafting kit, I can divert my May Paper Pumpkin box to any USA address. The shipping address needs to be updated by the 10th of the month to ship to you or a friend. That means, we have until about 8pm on May 10th to get the $25 PayPal payment and shipping details set. Click Contact above to snag my box for you! May kits are sold out so this is the only way to get a box if you are not already a subscriber.

If you miss getting my May box, you can look forward to signing up for your own box for the June kit. Full program details and sign up are through this link. Please make sure my name is somewhere on the screen so you are subscribing through me. This link should assign your purchase to me though.

Here are the kits from the last few months. It’s a surprise as to what is exactly in the box. But they do give some clues like project type, colors and themes for the upcoming month.


Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!

ICS Blog Hop Christmas is Coming


Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase holiday gifting projects. You may have arrived from Audra Monk’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I decided to create a belly band around our acetate gift boxes. The patterned paper is from the Under the Mistletoe package and measures 4×12 inches. Custom fold around the box for easy decoration.

The middle candy cane is popped up on mini dimensionals. The outer two are adhered with glue dots. Our candy cane builder punch also includes a bow. The bow was the perfect accent to dress up the silver metallic edge ribbon bow.

These boxes fit about 5 greeting cards and envelopes or a pillow gift for my downline while at #onstage, our convention celebrating Stampin’ Up!’s 30th anniversary! I hope she likes it!

Please leave a comment and let me know what you would tuck inside the boxes.

Thank you for hopping with us. Now click on the next image below to travel to Debbi Green’s blog to see what fun colors she used in her project.
