Maine Stampers Team Stamp Day at the Senator!

I like to do special things with my Stampin' Up! team through out the year, so instead of a regular team meeting, I held a full day of stamping, eating and laughing!!  We used new products which you will be able to purchase starting June 1st, yes, that is Tuesday.  So get your catalog out and start making your list.  Here are some of the photos:

Are You a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber?

If you are a Paper Pumkin subscriber, what did you make with your March kit?  I had a lot of fun with my March kit, take a look at the the different items I created and I still shave some left overs to use. Paper Pumpkin is a monthly kit that comes in the mail and is a surprise each month. Each kit includes paper, envelopes, accessories, adhesive, stamps and ink to create the projects.

The March kit included the supplies to make 4 mini cards and envelope with belly band and 4 cards with an envelope printed on the inside and a pocket to hold a gift card.

I Love Chocolate!

I love chocolate, especially when it comes packaged in such cute containers. Everyone knows I LOVE chocolate!  These are two treats I received from my team members Carol Mitchell-Cusick and Bethany Crummett.  

Valentine's Day Treat Holders Jeannine Tarrio

Carol's is the matchbook that holds a bag of M & M's and Bethany the Heart box that unties to reveal the wrapped chocolates inside. Yum, Yum. Thanks, ladies!


Directions for a cute box to hold your cards

Here is the last card and the card box from my Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love class:

Crumb Cake cardstock 6 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Score on the long side at 3 1/2" and 5"
Score on the  short side at 1" and 5 1/2"
Cut on the  3 1/2" and 5" score line to where it meets the  1" score line on both sides.
Fold on all score lines, the bottom tabs will be inside the box to form the bottom and side corner.  I used the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack on the cards and box.
