Crazy About Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day so I will keep this one brief!  Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms out there and especially to my own.  I survive because of my village and my mother and mother in law both are great role models!  I love these peonies - they remind me of my mom (since I stole them from her house and because they are beautiful!)

As for today's project, this is a great way to use your 12 x 12 DSP.  I cut a piece of the Affectionately Yours DSP to 10 1/2 x 10 1/2 and used our Envelope Punch Board to make the envelope.  Inside is a set of Stitched Shapes Framelits for my mother in law!  Shhhh... don't tell!

For the card, I used the cool framelit from Window Box Thinlits (which are not retiring - thank goodness!) on a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 of Very Vanilla.  If you don't like the edge left by the framelit, just turn it over at this point.  Put adhesive all over the back and position the 3 x 3 piece of  the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper behind it.  Isn't that shiny and wonderful????  Add the whole piece to the folded Crumb Cake using adhesive. 

Trim down one of the scraps from the envelope to 4 1/4 x 1.  Add to the front of the card using adhesive.  Take the 4 1/4 x 1 piece of Crumb Cake and make a banner end using the Triple Banner Punch.  Stamp with the Happy Mother's Day saying in Crumb Cake ink.  Then tie off a 8" piece of 1/4 Vanilla Satin Ribbon to the end of the banner and trim using your scissors.

They tell you to sell what you love and I love Paper Pumpkin.  Paper Pumpkin gives you a chance to be creative and take some time for yourself.  With instructions and supplies included, you can relax and make something that will brighten your day and the person you give it to.  Sending cards is great but there is something special about getting one in the mail that someone took the time to make themselves. 

Paper Pumpkin is creativity in a box.  It costs $19.95 plus tax and ships to your mailbox once a month.  It contains everything you need for your own creative escape.  Besides the instructions and pieces for the cards or project, it also contains ink and photopolymer stamps and usually the adhesive you need as well.  My subscribers will also get a project sheet with tips and additional ideas and instructions that they can make with the supplies in the kits and sometimes some supplemental supplies.  They also are invited to participate in a free Paper Pumpkin Playdates to make their kits using any of my additional supplies like framelits and punches!  It's a wonderful program and I'd love for you to try it out!  Sign up by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit!
