Special of the week ~ Half Off Paper Pumpkin! Plus, July Paper Pumpkin Video

Hello Friends!
My daughter Alexis (age 13) made a fabulous video of this month's paper pumpkin, then made up all the projects. Didn't she do a great job?

If you are interested in trying it out, I told her she is better at these videos than I am, and I would give her the commission from anyone who signs up to get a kit this month!

Isn't she talented for only being 13? I'm one grateful mom.

Here's the link to get your kit at 1/2 price for next month!

Thanks for visiting today!

Product of the Week Tufted Embossing Folder

Product of the week is the Tufted Embossing Folder! Create a nice 3D effect with this embossing folder.
It’s easy to make a great impression! Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through the Big Shot, and out comes cardstock with a bold textured design. 
Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders take embossing to the next level, with deeper, more detailed impressions than standard embossing folders—great for card fronts and accents.
* 1 folder
* 4-1/2" x 6-3/16" (11.4 x 15.7 cm)
* Use with Big Shot

If you need this one today, you can check it out in my store.  Please use the current host code for a surprise in the mail from me! 

Thanks so much!

Product of the week! Buy 3 Get one Free Designer Series Paper Offer

Happy Monday!

This week's featured product of the week is Designer Paper.  It is featured in so many projects that I do!  With new crafty friends, when they have trouble deciding what to order, I tell them to start simple with a few steps.

Newbie ordering guide:
  1. Pick a stamp set and coordinating Designer Paper that you like. 
  2. Look and see what colors come in the pack. 
  3. Order 2 of the colors and a neutral, meaning whisper white or very vanilla (to match).
  4. Don't forget envelopes and to look at accessories to match that kit!
When you start with just one set of colors, everything you have matches and you can make a TON of cards!  Below is a better look at what is on Sale! 

When you add these papers to your cart, the fourth paper needs to be separate for the computer to register what you would like.  Keep that in mind when placing your order.    
The current host code is: TP3EVDG4
