June Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Pick of the Crop

Hey Guys!, Today I am doing the June Paper Pumpkin Alternatives. This month’s box is called Pick of the Crop, and I had so much fun! It’s not all the time in Life that you can be surprised every month, but you can with Paper Pumpkin! The June Paper Pumpkin is all about fresh things as can be seen flowers and fruits. This box also has a cart that is too stinkin’ cute! Of course, I have a video that I made to make both cards, so be sure and check it out! Of course when making one of the cards for the 2nd time (on video) I HAD to change it up a bit, so make sure you watch to see what I did different.

Thinking of You

On my video I changed up this card, you’ll have to let me know what you think.

You’re the pick of the Crop

My second from the June Paper Pumpkin Alternatives was a fun yet subsequently a super simple card! The cart from the kit is significantly too cute not to use! But I trimmed off the awning and put Dimensionals AND Foam Adhesive strips on to give dimension.

I TOLD you the cart was stinkin’ cute!!

Are you a Discount Shopper?!

As I have previously mentioned I joined the SU! family to get the discount! But, did you know that I got so much more than a discount?! I have met some wonderful people, surprisingly learned a lot about stamping, and have been able to travel to the functions that Stampin’ Up! has! Not only do I have fun but my BEST FRIENDS are also with SU!

Of course

Telling myself when I joined that I wanted to be able to buy what I wanted from the catalogs and that I’m not in this for the money. I am happy to tell you that, at the present time with limits, I buy what I want AND get a Discount! If you would like to be creative, get a discount and have a ton of fun, then join my team: Lets Stamp! By all means, I would love to have you be a part of the SU! family!

Thank you for once again stopping by and visiting my Blog, I really hope that you will join me on my Lives on YouTube! For those watching and leaving comments, of course I have a drawing and send out the cards I made that day! For that reason I Hope you will join me sometime!

Fancy Fold Baby Card

Hey Guys, Peek-a-Boo cards are fun to make I hope you join me thus and see how easy they can be! If you would like to see it made surely check out my Live YouTube Video now! It’s called Peek-a-Boo because when you open the card a surprise message appears! My niece is having a baby I plan on sending this in order that she knows I’m happy for her!

Peek-a-Boo!  When you open this card a surprise text appears!
Isn’t the Elephant too cute!?

Friends Forever

May not be a peek-a-Boo but it is sooo cute!!
Friends Forever


Both of these cards of course use the Stamp set from SU! called Elephant Parade. I especially love the Peek-a-Boo card, but the other one makes me smile! I love the idea certainly of an elephant leaving peanuts (his favorite snack by the way) to his best friend! Of course my favorite snack is Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, I’ll share too!

Are you a Happy Shopper?

As I’ve said in the past, I especially LOVE being a Demo with SU! But, did you know you can join and NOT do any classes? Or, you can join and just get that happy discount for something that certainly makes you happy! The reason I joined almost 19 years ago in brief is I wanted the discount! I stamped with my friends and ended up on the whole, making new ones! Basically who doesn’t love a discount!? Let me know if you of course want to hear more!

One other thing

IF you shop with me, you will in truth get a hand made card from me. But you will also get a PDF of 16 cards/projects in this situation you will love! Of course you must buy at least $35 to get it, which realistically is super easy! In any case I can do that in my sleep! I so appreciate your support and of course want to Thank you!


Lastly I want to thank you for being here on my Blog. Of course my hope is you will love what I share that in fact you will want to return! Also, if you come to one of my Live’s on YouTube you can possibly win one of my cards! I pick two people during my Live who’re chatting with me to mail a card I made that day! My hope is in this case you will want to return! I’m off next week, but I hope to see you the following Thursday!

Paper Pumpkin April Alternatives

Fancy Fold, Cuteness & Sponging!

Hey Guys!, I’m making Paper Pumpkin April Alternatives 2022 from my kit today! You can watch it here! As always, the kit has really great images to stamp but I’m super excited for the sentiments in this one! As I’ve told you before, my daughter is graduating from College in just a few weeks! The sentiments in this kit are unquestionably perfect for someone about to start something new!

This kit is perfect for graduating, having a baby, getting married you name it! I love making alternatives for Paper Pumpkin and this April kit was so perfect that I thought I should leave it as is! Of course I DID come up with a few alternatives and I’m thrilled with how they came out! Be that as it may, I got help from Rachel Tessman on ONE of my cards, I only changed a few things! Thank you Rachel! Get your Paper Pumpkin Subscription here!

Going to the Beach

Tired of the Cold

Hey guys, I’m going to the beach. I’m tired of the cold! Generally I am ALWAYS tired of cold, I am a girl who is not happy when it’s cold. I am sharing with you today two cards, of course, where I will be going to the beach! Of course I adore the ocean, growing up in Southern California I went to the beach all the time. Because I live in North Carolina I don’t get to go as often.

First thing to remember is every week I make cards for you that I also do a video on, indeed you can see the video for these two cards here. Moreover if you missed my other videos but would like to catch up, of course you can, just click here. Download my cards with a PDF and follow along if you desire!

I absolutely LOVE that fence!

Become a Happy Shopper

Why did I join Stampin’ Up! almost 19 years ago? Of course it is because I wanted the Discount! Not to mention that I also wanted to get Color Coordination. Compared to trying to scrapbook and coordinate the colors on my page, SU! made it simple! Undeniably their products match each other, the ribbons, inks, papers embellishments ALL color coordinate. That takes away all the guess work for me! After all once you pick the color that best goes with your photo, the rest is easy! Join my team and you too can be a Happy Shopper! Coupled with getting a discount, my team get’s together every month and we stamp and swap cards! I also teach you how to do watermarks and make pdf’s along with other teaching tools.

Get a PDF with a Qualifying order!

Every month I work with 16 other Demonstrators where we each make a project, write down the instructions and include pictures. How can you get this PDF you ask? Of course it is super simple….with a Qualifying order ($35 or more) you will receive in your email a PDF with directions on how to make each one! As can be seen below there is a sneak peek!

This month it's all double scrapbook pages!
Love scrapbooking!

Stampin’ Besties Club!

Undeniably my favorite part of being a SU! demo is being able to do classes with my Besties! Carol, Hetty and I get together virtually moreover we plan 6 cards using the same stamps/suites! It’s amazing how the three of us identically use the same product and be totally different! Rarely do we get to come together in person, so we have so much fun in our Besties Club! Not only do you get 3 Designers, but you get so much more! Check out this page to find out more then let me know you want to be a Bestie too!


Notwithstanding, I am finishing my post today, I would also like you to know that I appreciate you! After all, The fact that you are reading this has made my day! I work hard to make my posts interesting and particularly hope you find them so. Also, below my sign off are the pictures that you can click on of the product used in today’s cards. Click on any of them, after that you will be taken to my Online Store! My hope is that you love the cards today and will of course want to try them out yourselves! Until next Thursday!
