Ribbon and Paper Shares!

I actually skip the stamps and head straight to the ribbons and patterned papers when I get a hot copy of the new catalog in my hands.

The new 2019-2020 annual catalog was no exception. I love using our ribbons and designer series papers because they are flat and can be easily mailed. A little snip of ribbon or strip of paper patterns can quickly make your card zoom to wow in seconds.

You need to have these pretty awesome products on your stamp table! I can help:) Purchase a new ribbon share and this pretty display can sit on your stamp table for ease of use. A share includes 16 yards of new ribbon, 1 yard each of the new styles for $20.

To complement the ribbons, I can also help with a designer series paper share:) Each dsp share includes 6×12 inch pieces of every new patterned paper package plus the new peacock foils and colored vellums. The larger pieces allow for additional creativity.

A share includes all the patterns you see here. Plus, the upper four rows are double sided. So if you don’t like one side, you will love the other! A share is $50. Split a share with a stamping friend! Just ask that I cut the share into 6×6 inch pieces.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Hugs from Shelli


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the May Paper Pumpkin kit, Hugs from Shelli, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Lisa Kmiec’s blog. She had a great project!

I decided to use the stamps included in the kit to create an ombre look.

There are only a few feather die cuts included in the kit. So use the feather stamp and a blender pen to create custom, colored feathers.
