Is anybody else missing their lipstick? Wearing a mask every time I leave the house is making lipstick rather pointless so maybe that's why I was so drawn to this cute Hearts & Kisses Bundle. It's one of my favourites from the new Jan-Jun Mini Catty & I've had great fun playing with it.

December seems to have gotten away from me! Between preparing for our quiet Covid Christmas & playing with my pre-order from the January-June mini catalogue, I seem to have been MIA.
Hoping that this holiday was the best that it could be during these chaotic times. Even my Paper Pumpkin kit was late (seriously, that never happens to me) so here, a little later than usual, is my parade of Paper Pumpkin alternatives from the December 2020.
This kit is called Beary Comforting & arrived with the sweetest collection of cards of cheer.

The November Paper Pumpkin Kit is all about Gingerbread! The stamp set includes a sweet gingerbread house, some swirly trim & some sentiments sized perfectly for tags & gift card holders. My P.P. Peeps & I love to make cards so we added a great collection of alternative cards & 3D projects to the intended gift card holder (shown above with it's matching envelope).

Wow - what a busy weekend! Stampin' Up! held their huge annual event, On Stage, this past weekend & we all stayed home! That's because it was a fantastic virtual event - On Stage @ Home. It had everything but the hugs & my brain is ready to explode. We had business sessions by experts, prizes (wouldn't be a Stampin' Up! event without Prize Patrol) & we even did tons of stamping. Of course the new January-June Mini catty was revealed (you're gonna love it!) & we had an opportunity to pre-order many of the suites & bundles.
The stamping demonstrations are one of my fave things about these events. We were blown away by the versatility of some of the new stamp sets & bundles & don't get me started about some new golden products.
I'll be sharing as much as I can in the coming weeks & as soon as my pre-order goodies arrive there will be more samples coming.
Some great news - dragonflies are back! I loved the dies from previous years but wait until you see the Punch! It's super easy to use, cuts two sizes of dragonflies & I love the matching stamp set. We got to play around with these beauties so here is a little sneak-peak.

The October Paper Pumpkin kit is always one of my favourites of the year. It is traditionally a box full of Christmas inspiration & this month was no exception! The kit, aptly named "Joy To The World", included card bases in Crumb Cake & gold with floral die cuts & gold foil words for embellishment. The ink spot this month is Just Jade & the Cherry Cobbler Bakers' Twine made for easy bows. Here's a card made following the instructions - sort of...

Here I am again with a couple more plaid cards! The Plaid Tidings DSP, on sale until the end of October is a fab selection of well, plaid paper! There are colours for every season perfectly coordinated with Stampin' Up! colours. The convenient 6x6" format is perfect for cardmaking. The size provides a enough for at least 2 cards & of course the paper is double sided with a different plaid pattern on each side.
Here I CASE'd a card designed by Tandra Boyer using non-traditional colours (Pretty Peacock & Just Jade) on a 3 3/4" 5" plaid mat embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. I love how all the layers are embossed giving the look of fine fabric.
