2017 Catalog has Arrived

Fun for Another Year

The new catalog launched and it has some wonderful new In Color inks and paper. Lovely all inclusive card kits and refills too, so the fun can keep on going. And all the new stamp sets. This catalog is so full of sets. I have never seen Stampin’ Up! offer this many sets in one Annual Catalog, that means you can get ant of these until next May 31st 2018. Wow! They have even brought back the glossy paper, popular demand by everyone. And did I say yummy new In Colors, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink. I have never like all the colors in the set, there has always been one color that was just not my favorite and I tended to avoid it. Not in this set, I Love Them All. It’s a hard choice sometimes depending on the stamp set. The Eastern Palace Suite has rich jewel tones and gold foil. The Petal Garden Suite is feminine with coral floral prints and flowers. Oh! and the Birthday Suite has a wonderful retro feel to it. More like a looking through a little golden book from years past. bright blues, reds, yellows and little critters dancing along merrily. A suite that uses all the new In Colors is called The Fresh Florals Suite, absolutely stunning papers, matching ribbbon and bows. Used along with The Detailed Floral Thinlit Dies that returned for this catalog make a WOW! card. Last but surely not the least is the pastel lovers suite. The Bundle of Love, it is a set for beautiful bridal/wedding events and doubles as a baby boy/girl suite too! gorgeous blush/pink, blue/sky, cream/vanilla and of course gorgeous gold foil. There are more suites that the ones I have mentioned that are just as wonderful s go and take a look. You can find a catalog link on my home page on the left side, just click the picture and it will take you straight to a downloadable pdf if you would like a copy.


Thanks for stopping by! And have a blessed Day!



Watermelon Love!

Sweet Watermelon! And My Paper Pumpkin

If you aren’t subscribed to the All Inclusive Subscription of My Paper Pumpkin you are missing a great deal.

This month we are playing with the fruits of summer, Watermelon! This kit is a great way to not only escape from the worries of the world for the adults but also to get the kids involved to keep them out of trouble. The kit, as always, has a project with stamps, ink pad/s, papers (pre-cut) to complete the project, stickers, embellishments and adhesive.

This months kit…

I have a couple of alternative projects you can do if you don’t need that many bags or cards. The first card is complements of Debbie Henderson of Debbie’s Designs

Life Happened! I Missed the Holiday Catalog : (

So, I totally missed the Holiday Catalog Launch (Sometimes life happen and plans have to change) and now we are coming to a close on this Holiday season and so the Fall/Holiday Catalog ends soon too. That being said, there is still time to order an All-Inclusive Kit or two for a special crafty person on your list. Stampin’ Up! has already issued their Retiring Products List for this Holiday Catty so you can even get nice discount.

I have a fun day planned tomorrow with my Sister In Law. We are making our Christmas cards. I really need a mental break and to laugh, hang out and have fun. I have a couple Christmas sets from the Annual Catalog and 1 new set from the Holiday Catalog I cant wait to ink up and see what I can create.

Sets for tomorrow will be… (Drum Roll Please)…




Visit the site on Monday to see what we did with these gorgeous sets. Gotta run and get all my materials together for tomorrow. It is like moving everything except the kitchen sink. haha.

Until Then Have A Blessed Day,



Playtime! Need a couple cards this week.

Well, mister brown (UPS) finally showed up. Imagine the old commercial, the one that says open, open, open as the lady stands at the doors waiting of the Dept store with her fingers and nose pressed to the glass. That was me, saying Hurry up, Hurry up, Hurry up at my front door. It has a glass panel so I can see through it quite nicely.

I finally gave up and went about my day. I needed to make a birthday card and an anniversary card for next week and what a good excuse to play with some new goodies. It had been a rough week and I needed some therapy time. Just me and my ink, paper and scissors. I can’t just stick with 3 things though when I have new toys just waiting for a chance to show me what they have for me.

The first card I needed was a birthday card for my 8 yr old grandson. I decided since he was growing up so fast I would make a semi-grown up card. He tells us frequently he’s not a little kid anymore and he can do it by himself.

Here is the card using the new Number Of Years Stamp Set & Thinlit Dies and

the background is Balloon Celebration Stamp Set.

Number Of Years 2016-07

I had so much fun with this set I made the next card with it too. It was an anniversary card, the couple is celebrating 14 yrs. I went with the cut-out numbers again.

Number of Years 07-16

 I can see many more uses for this Number of Years Stamp Set & Thinlit Dies.

iincolor ink pad set2015-17

Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder

Although I was extremely attached to a couple of last years In-colors (I’m not mentioning that Blackberry Bliss was the bomb and Lost Lagoon was the best blue for Christmas scenes everrrr). I will miss them but I was also ready for something new and fun.

Speaking of New and Fun, this catalog is spectacular. I think it’s the best annual catalog Stampin’ Up! has done to date. they have truly out done themselves this year. The coordinating suites are too die for.

Here are just a couple peeks….

These Kits are all inclusive, all you need is a pair scissors to possibly cut some ribbon or twine that is also included in the kits. They will come with everything. An exclusive stamp set that you can only get through My Paper Pumpkin, all your cardstock for the project pre-cut and scored (so just fold and go), An ink pad called a Stampin’ Spot (same colors as our big pads only smaller, travel size), All the cardstock stickers and embellishments (like rhinestones, clips, pearls, ribbon, sequins and more) to adorn your projects.

Here is a picture of our December 2015 Kit



Come on and join the fun of My Paper Pumpkin it really is good therapy. In 30-60 mins of crafting time (depending on how fast you work), alone or even with the kids, its a great escape from the everyday hum drum.

Great Therapy Time! It keeps me sane, well as much as possible.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day,
