Stampin' Up!'s OCCASIONS CATALOG will be going live very soon!  We can order from the catalog, HANDMADE FROM THE HEART, beginning January 5.  I thought I would show you a SNEAK PEAK today using a fabulous BUNDLE.  Why is this bundle so fabulous?  Because there are three products bundled ~ not the usual two ~ stamp set, designer series paper and framelits dies.  If you have your catalog, you can check out this bundle on page 26.  If you don't have a catalog, EMAIL ME your name and address and I will send you both this catalog and our new brochure for SALE-A-BRATION which begins the same day.  And, now the sneak peak ~ let me know what you think!

On December 23 I blogged about this month's MY PAPER PUMPKIN KIT.  I finished mine and gave it to my niece, Katherine, on Christmas day when my family played the Chinese Christmas Exchange game.  I have found some alternatives to the calendar and I thought I would share with you.  There always seems to be lots of ways to use the products in the Paper Pumpkin Box of goodies and here are a few.  The first picture is the original calendar design and the others are pretty cards.  If you used your KIT to create alternatives, send me a picture ~ I'd love to share!  Thanks for stopping by, Susan Elise

I love this month's PAPER PUMPKIN.  It is a pretty 2016 calendar, easy to put together with great results!  I spent an hour this morning putting mine together (may be a gifty in my family's traditional CHRISTMAS GAME on Friday!  It's perfect ~ just the right price and handmade!).  Here's a little video to show you just how cute, and fast, it is!  And, did you know YOU can gift a PAPER PUMPKIN KIT?  It is easy ~ go to my website to online ordering.  On the left side of the page click on the link to Paper Pumpkin ~ Prepaid Subscriptions.  It is an order so you will be paying with your credit card.  You will put in your friend's email address.  Your friend will receive an email from Paper Pumpkin telling her that she has a Paper Pumpkin Gift and sending her a link to set up her account (her name, address, etc.).  Once she has the account Paper Pumpkin will let her know when your gift is ending and she can resubscribe if she would like.  SUPER GIFT, SUPER EASY, SUPER LAST MINUTE FABULOUS GIFT!  Let me know if you have questions!
