Hello there! I have this fabulous Halloween card to share with you that is clean, simple and showcases another use of the awesome Swirly Scribbles Thinlets. These dies never leave my desk. I have about a million ideas in my head of what to do with those 3 swirly dies that I'll probably end up wearing them out. What a great investment and you don't even need the coordinating stamp set! This is part of the Paper Craft Crew Holiday 2016 Catalog Preview Series that Rick Adkins and myself are presenting to you. 

A few weeks ago, I made a snowman card using these dies. Today's card is a pumpkin. I used the largest die in the set with all new Stampin' Up! 2016 Holiday Catalog products that you can order from on September 1. I haven't been disappointed with this catalog yet and most of the stamp sets coordinate with dies from the Annual Catalog stretching your craft budget even further. Not only that, there is a tremendous amount of stamp sets and dies that are truly year-round. It's all staying in my craft room when the catalog retires. I have managed to match up so many retired dies and punches that you can use with images from both catalogs and it's great. I'll have to get a chart together. I was working on one and then decided to pick up my room a little bit. I have managed to lose a stamp set and a few other critical items that were on my desk and are now nowhere to be found. I'm not getting this at all. 

I also have a process video for you that will show you how I made this card because I'm pretty sure you might be wondering how I got the adorable Old Olive leaves for my pumpkin. 

I've decided to also use this video as a guinea pig to do my first voiceover. I have to edit myself and I get bored. I need to learn how to speed up my videos and do this. I've watched a lot of other crafty peeps start fresh, like I'm going to, and it's not pretty at first, but in time, they are now pro's and I need to get with the program. Sometimes old school rules….remembering David Bowie in the original Zoolander when he was the judge of the "Walk Off," need a little kick. For now, you're getting the real video.

Thank you so very much for stopping by to visit me today and God bless!

Hello there friends and fans of the Paper Craft Crew! As always, I'm having technical difficulties. I'm cursed!

I have this fabulous clean and simple, easily mass-producible New Year's card for you using the new Frosted Medallions stamp set. I cleaned this weekend and of course, lost my notes on what the images inside the main image coordinate with as far as retired and other products of dies and punches that you have from Stampin' Up! I will find my resources somewhere. Frosted Medallions is a stamp set that goes beyond the holidays into weddings!

This product suite is awesome with beautiful white embossed card stock that you can color up, a glitter ribbon pack combination and lovely sequins. The main colors are Soft Sky and Sweet Sugarplum, which are so very soft and elegant. This is a great card for a Happy New Year and weddings. This is one that has a good chance of carrying over to the 2017-2018 Annual Idea Book & Catalog. 

I have a short video for you on how I made my Happy New Year card and I hope that you enjoy it! Thank you so very much for stopping by to visit us today, God bless and have a wonderful day!

Hello there Paper Craft Crew friends and fans! We are so appreciative of you stopping by to check out our series of the Stampin' Up! 2016 Holiday Catalog, that is so chock full of the most wonderful products in the history of forever! We have so much to share with you. So many stamp sets and Framelits will be carried over to the new 2017-2018 Annual Idea Book & Catalog. We are so excited to save money, stretch your stamps and protect your investment, while showing you all the way how to to do this. We are here to help you, always., and we love our friends and fans, and you are the reason why we are presenting this series to you 🙂

Today's card combines two stamp sets of Basket of Wishes and Totally Trees. I am personally keeping both stamp sets and I do see them carrying over to the Annual Catalog for 2017. These stamp sets are timeless, elegant, fun and absolutely year-round. There are no Framelits to coordinate with either stamp set, but the images are fabulous! The possibilities of both stamp sets are truly endless. These are keepers friends!

I have a video for you today showing you how I made my card. I hope that you enjoy the process. God bless and have a great day. Thank you for stopping by!
