Paper Pumpkin February

So, what’s in store for the Paper Pumpkin in February? 

Info from Stampin Up below. Remember, you can always pause your subscription, or just buy 1 month (or a few months)... it's all up to you.  We all like different things! I'm excited about 9 pretty cards.  Here's the scoop below, let me know if you have a question, here for you! MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com

February’s Paper Pumpkin kit—Bouquet of Hope—provides a way to offer comfort, care, and condolences to those enduring life’s challenges. With beautiful blooms and supportive sentiments, the Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin Kit will soothe sorrow and share sympathy in a heartfelt, handmade way. While you can create nine cards of comfort and coordinating envelopes with this month’s kit, the kit’s exclusive, versatile stamp set can be used to uplift loved ones during trying times, any time.

Happy stamping, MaryKate

Come Stamp with Me! Create a Valentine's Day Card

Hi... I'm moving my Valentine's Day class online to Wednesday evenings at 6pm on my Facebook page Facebook.com/SipCraftCare. I hope you can join me and craft along.  Here's what we will make Jan 13. The dimensions are below.

This Wednesday Jan 13 6pm we are making this card.  If you want to create along with me, bring a base card (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded) along with die cut or punched hearts.  We have several punches and dies that make a nice variety of hearts. I'll be using the Heartfelt dies.  

I used the new Love You Always paper and foil - but check your stash, I'm sure you have something you can use.

For the words - I'm using the "love" and "you" from the dies "nothing more than" ... as in Love you more than chocolate, cookies etc. We played with this stamp and die set this summer, Click here to see these projects

You can die cut words or stamp, this is a fun easy card to make.  I'll post a link to the video on this blog entry after we create at 6pm Jan 13!

I will be creating several different Valentines cards and treat packaging each Wednesday evening at 6pm on my Facebook page, I hope you join me (live or on the replay!)

There are lots of fun new sets and dies and punches in our new catalog. You can find the catalog under the tab "shopping, deals, catalogs" or email me MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com and I can send you a paper copy (so much better to browse vs online!). 

Don't forget the host code (if you are under $150) as I send out fun gifts to all my customers each month. If you are thinking of spending $100... the best deal is to create a Stampin Up membership (select $125, pay $99, no shipping, and you get a 20% discount on future purchases).  Jan and Feb 2021 there is an extra goodie for you - 200 sheets of pretty paper. Please email me if you have questions!

Happy creating, MaryKate
