Only 5 Days Left!

I have a question for much is 30-60 minutes of creative fun, delivered right to your door, worth to you? Is $10 (including shipping!) too much? That's all you'd pay for each of your first two months if you subscribe within the next five days.

Time is running out to take advantage this offer! It's easy, fun, and most of all EXCITING to see that red box in your mailbox, and the anticipation while opening it is like Christmas every month!

If you try it and decide you don't like the fun projects, just cancel. If unforeseen circumstances mean you need to skip a month or two, you can do that, too.

Want to give it a try? Come on, what do you have to lose?! Just SIGN UP HERE to try it. Be sure to enter the HALFOFF2 code to get the discount. And if you sign up by September 10th, you'll get this month's fabulous Halloween treat bags kit! I had a chance to play with it at convention, and trust me, it's awesome and sure to bring a big smile to whoever the lucky recipients may be!

Want to see what came in last month's My Paper Pumpkin? Watch the YouTube video.

Here's a link to the August MPP on Pinterest, so you can see what people did with it, and here's the July MPP on Pinterest, too, so you can get an idea of how fun these kits really are!

Just do know you want to!

Holiday Catalog Now Live!

You've been seeing some sneak peeks from the Holiday Catalog for the past few weeks, and today is the day you can order from the catalog yourself! If you don't have a catalog, click the link on the left to see a PDF version, or let me know if you want a paper copy, and I'll send it right out!

These are some of the projects from inside the catalog, made by the fabulous Stampin' Up! artists (what a dream job that must be!).

There is still time to get in on the Mystery Hostess party that will close Saturday night. If you want to be in the drawing to be the hostess and get the benefits, place an order by Saturday night and use Hostess Code EJFSCUB7.  Everyone's name goes in the basket, a name will be drawn and winner will be announced Sunday morning!

Today marks my sixth blogaversary. Wait, what? Six years? Really?! It doesn't seem that long, at all. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing or where I would be going when I started this blog. I must say, though, I've thoroughly enjoyed the learning process, and most of all, the new friends I've made (both my e-friends, and the ones I've actually had the pleasure of meeting!).

There was a lovely surprise from Stampin' Up! in my mailbox today, too -- my Five-Year pin along with a nice congratulations letter from Shelli Gardner! I love being a part of this wonderful company!

So, to celebrate six years of blundering along fabulous, creative content, I'm giving away some blog candy. Just leave a comment telling me which project you liked the most, or how I've inspired you in some way, and you will be entered in the drawing. Because postage makes shipping outside the U.S. cost-prohibitive, I'm sorry I must limit the winner to a U.S. address. (But if you're outside the U.S., I'd still love to hear what inspired you!)

So, what is the candy? It's the clear-mount Summer Silhouettes stamp set and a roll of Lost Lagoon 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon!

Also, the Holiday Catalog launch is this Thursday, and I have Mystery Hostess party that will close Sunday Aug. 31st. If you want to be in the drawing to be the Mystery Hostess and receive the hostess benefits, just place an order by Saturday night, and use Hostess Code EJFSCUB7. Even if you don't win, I'll still send you a little thank you for your order!

Winners of the Mystery Hostess (for placing an order using the Hostess Code) and blog candy (for leaving a comment on this post) will be picked Sunday at 9:00 AM Pacific and contacted. Winning hostess has until 9:00 PM Sunday to let me know what she wants to spend the hostess dollars on, or winnings will be forfeit. I need to place the order that night, so I can't wait!

STAMP: Sweetbriar Rose
CARDSTOCK: Whisper White, White Vellum, Silver Glimmer Paper (retired)
INK: VersaMark, plus Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Assortments
