March Paper Pumpkin Kit

I LOVE this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit because it combines sewing and paper crafting!  I made these 9 cards and still have a 12-piece stamp set and mini-ink pad to use on other projects.

The only things I needed that weren’t included in the kit were a pair of scissors and a flosser (to thread the needle!)  If you want a new project box in your mailbox every month, check it out HERE.

Sale-A-Bration is Almost Over!

Just about 10 more days to Sale-A-Brate!  In case you haven’t been paying attention, Sale-A-Bration is the time of year that you get to select a FREE gift for each $50 purchase you make!!  A few weeks ago, Stampin’ Up! added 4 brand new SAB items: 2 stamp sets, a new designer vellum paper, and a button/twine assortment.  Here is what you could make using them:

It is easy to get your free Sale-A-Bration items!  Just go to my Stampin’ Up! store and place a $50 order (before shipping and tax).  Then add one of these items (or any of the other SAB items available, see brochure).  Call me (210.684.5800) or email me (gail@rvcrafting) if you have any questions!


Hooray! It’s All About You!

No matter what, you probably send birthday cards, right?  And I think we can all agree that hand-made cards are the best because they come from the heart.  I wanted to tell you about the Hooray, It’s All About You Simply Created Card Kit from Stampin’ Up! that includes card bases, envelopes, die-cut accents and stickers, twine, clips, washi tape, masks, and more!  Add you own (or add to your collection) stamps, ink, and adhesives, and you can have 20 birthday cards ready when you need them.

These are the cards that I made with the kit and I also made a video for each card type!

What I used to make these cards:


Snow Day!

I have been here at the Staunton KOA campground one week and I have seen beautiful sunny days, 5 inches of snow, and mud!  I can’t imagine what the next 8 months will be like!  Let me share some of the photos with you:

I didn’t think I would see Moose covered with so much snow!

This is just wrong.

Lake with geese. I guess the geese don’t realize there are snapping turtles!

The good news was that I got some stamping done!  I made about 30 of these cards – to give to my top selling team members and to send to my Virtual Stamp Club members.

February Top20 Cards

I have also been making the cards from the Hooray It’s Your Day Project Kit.  The kit includes supplies to make 20 cards (5 each of 4 designs) and I am also working on videos of each design that I hope to have uploaded soon.  Order your kit and you will be able to follow along on the video.
