Gateway Drug

LOL I heard a fellow demonstrator make this reference today and it’s SO true ... the Paper Pumpkin is the perfect monthly subscription box for trying out paper crafting and it is so addictive - it’s a wonderful relaxation and great for supporting mental health!

Sale-a-bration is the perfect time to try out the Paper Pumpkin subscription boxes using the prepaid codes because you can earn additional FREE products to help you play outside the box with Paper Pumpkin alternatives!

Make sure to check out my Pinterest board for 'outside the box' alternatives for the various kits!

January Paper Pumpkin - Scrapbook edition

January’s Paper Pumpkin “Outside the Box” scrapbook edition ... paired the “Bee Ours” stamp set and kit embellishments with two card bases for my DSP strip and than used a dissected envelope for my corner edges along with the Detailed Hearts and Well Written dies coordinating with the Mint Macaroon and Highland Heather inks for this lovely layout I plan to use to journal a girls night out with my BFF!

Alternative Treat Bag

When you think “Outside the Box” with the Paper Pumpkin you can make use of features that you think you might not use into things you WILL - so this is an example of how you can turn the treat bag into a card if you’re more inclined to use a card than a treat bag!

I carefully cut the seams with my craft knife and than trimmed it up on edges and to the size desired. The photo light never catches the gorgeous foiling properly but it is a lovely shimmering delight!  

Current Paper Pumpkin subscribers are invited to bring their kits along come play with their box at January’s kit class ... those wanting to check out Paper Pumpkin without the subscription are invited to come play with one of my kits - check out the event page on my website for more class details!

Paper Pumpkin Outside the Box cards

Two cute cards created from 1 card base and a couple kit embellishments from January's 'Bee Ours' Paper Pumpkin kit.

I used the Heart pack punch duo to punch the two  hearts from the centre of the front and back of the 3x3 card base and than used my mini paper cutter to carefully cut the two parts of base apart along the crease and than shaved off a wee bit from the white side of base to create two different layered looks for the cards!

Than I used the mint macaroon and coordinating rose rococo inks to stamp images from stamp set. Plus the Blends are perfect for colouring rhinestones to create coordinating gems for any project 💕

I also reused my Hey, Friend sentiment stamp set from the Something for Everything December Kit - the Paper Pumpkin kits can be used over and over again and are a great way to build your stamp collection!

'Bee Ours' January Paper Pumpkin Kit

Playing with the January Paper Pumpkin Kit “Bee Ours” ... love the fun colour palette of Crushed Curry, Highland Heather, Mint Macaroon and Rococo Rose! 

The treat bags are perfect to house gift cards, hot chocolate packs, a couple of your favourite tea bags or for the paper crafter lovers some embellishments! Perfect for Valentines but also for treat bags for birthday, bridal or baby showers as well or just because random acts of kindness in someone’s lunch box or desk!

The stamp set is just adorable for many occasions and I have lots of outside the box design ideas dancing through my head to make next!!! The fact that this kit coordinates with the Heart Punch pack plus the little Bee stamps and sentiment beg for the  Golden Honey DSP from Saleabration lends to LOTS of possibilities for projects 💕💕💕

I will be using inspirations from this kit at this months Stamp a Stack to help show customers how much fun it is to play with the Paper Pumpkin subscription kits!
Check back on Instagram, Facebook or my blog for my “outside the box” Paper Pumpkin alternatives!

Big Mac in a Bowl

When it’s 6:30 am and you’re scrolling on Facebook and thinking about what to have for lunch ... Big Mac in a bowl yes please  😋


I know it’s gross but Big Macs are one of the things I really miss about being Celiac like might consider one for my last meal things I miss 🤣 It is currently in the vault until Spring catalog but if you want some Big Burger sauce seasoning visit Lisa she can hook you up with some!

Have a great day
