Joy to the World


I am delighted that we have another Paper Pumpkin, this next edition is 'Joy to the World' and is itself a box of joy.

As Paper Pumpkin is a paper-crafting subscription programme only available in North America and parts of Canada, I love that we are able to get our hands on this special edition kit.  

This  specially-designed collectible box contains enough supplies to create eight elegant Christmas cards.  From festive floral die cuts to lengths of linen thread, embossed paper elements to delicate die-cut lettering—this magical kit is perfect for crafting this season.

This exclusive joy-filled kit is only available while supplies last. 


Details

The Paper Pumpkin kit contains enough supplies to create eight cards—four each of two designs—and coordinating envelopes. 

Card size: 5-7/8 x 4-1/8 (14.9cm x 10.47cm) Envelope size: 6-3/8 x 4-7/16 (16.19cm x 11.27cm) 

Coordinating Colours: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Just Jade, Soft Sea Foam 

Other contents: 

An exclusive stamp set you won’t find anywhere else! 

One Classic Stampin’ Spot Paper and crafting materials including card bases, die-cut pieces, embellishments, and adhesive. 

The Joy to the World Kit includes die-cut sentiment pieces in English, French, and German. This will allow you to create cards you can use to send to friends & family in these countries! 

Note that you will need a clear stamping block if you, or if you are gifting the box to your friend/family member, and don't have one, you require a clear block. Clear Block D (item 118485) is the one to get.


Happy crafting & thank you for your support

Wednesday Challenge & don't miss more savings!

Welcome to Wednesday, as I call it, 'hump day' as we are in the middle of week.  So, let's get some creativity going and fire up the mojo.  I'd love to see what project you come up with the sketch below.  Post in the comments, or if you are Facebook, over on my page @Esellekpapercraft

Here's this week's challenge, challenge 1, use the sketch as a framework for your project, be inspired:



The paper sale ends on 31 October, I shared a saving on my Facebook page, but here it is also for my dear blog readers.

Do you want to save some ££? I love helping you save and here's a saving if you want it - but after the 31 Oct, the chance will have gone. Here's an example using the Whale of a Time product suite which costs £61.

Now, while the paper is on sale, get what's in the bundle separately and save!

Click on the shopping link >> https://s.tamp.in/GA2tUm to have a shopping cart waiting for you - note that the stamp set bundle is in English so if you want the French or German version, just remove it and add which one you want. You can add to the order (as in you might need more of the paper while it's on offer), or make use of the other product suites that include the 15% off papers!

Loving the plaid!

I am in love with the plaid paper, even more so since it's on sale until the end of October!  If you have a box of scraps, give this challenge a go.  The cards shown below are made using:

  • A Crushed Curry card base
  • A 3-3/4" x 5" (9.5 x 12.7 cm) piece of white cardstock
  • A 4" x 3/4" (10.2 x 1.9 cm) piece of Cajun Craze Cardstock
  • A 5-1/2" x 2" (14 x 5.1 cm) piece of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper
  • Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set 



{Click the image below to see the card dimensions}


 
I love the card with the three panels 1-5/8" x 3-3/4" (4.1 x 9.5 cm) panels. It shows the seasons where the first image has the late summer/early autumn, then the second image has a tree in full autumn glory, and then the final third panel has the tree preparing to cosy up and hibernate for the winter. Check out the build-up of leaves on the bottom of the card, which gets bigger with each panel.  

When you get creative, come on over to my Facebook page @EsellekPapercraft and share your projects, I'd love to see what you create.

I'm having a whale of a time!

It's sharing time again!  I just don't want you to miss out on the promotions that are running.  And, also, here's George from the Home Office to help me share this adorable suite with you...


I love this suite so much, and it is great for making tall slimline cards, visit Pinterest for ideas on creating our own masterpieces.

Seriously though, if you want to save some £/€ then do look at getting the bundles, the product suite is just full of crafting happiness, and with the paper sale, maybe add some more paper {just saying}!

The blue ridge mountains of Virginia...

...on the trail of the lonesome pine.

This song popped up in my head when I saw this card and video, which may show my age!  Also, I just love the mountains and have been to the Rocky Mountains in Canada, it's just an amazing sight to see these huge pieces of the Earth rising up.  

Anyway, I want to share with you the In the Pines set, another set on my wish list and not yet in my hands as I space out my wants from the catalogues over the lifetime of the catalogues.  Although, saying that, having seen the video, there may be a sneaky little order going in so I can play.

Watch this video for a couple of ideas of how to get creative with this bundle.

Flowery and 3D - get creative

Hello friends

I was perusing the online shop, and have been umming about the Poinsettia Place Suite, I'm not a flowery person and not sure about the 3D flowers.  But, I have had my mind changed having taken some time to watch George from the Home Office show 'me' that I shouldn't be scared of something so pretty!

Stampin' Up! has made it easy for me to create the perfect poinsettia and have you seen the flocked designer paper, you must check this out and what you can do with it!  The speciality paper isn't in the current paper sale, but the designer paper is, so, as they say, I am going to make hay while the sun is shining as add some poinsettia palace paper in my basket seeing it has 15% off until the end of October!

If you are like me and a bit iffy about flowers or creating them in 3D, well here is George...


Here is a card made using the suite and papers.  Isn't it beautiful?



Click the paper to see it in more detail.

Handmade Cards with the Peace & Joy Bundle!

Hello Friends

Well, it certainly has been a busy few weeks.  One child went back to Uni towards the end of September to start their second year and another went at the weekend to start their first year.  Needless to say, now there is just the one, it's kinda strange what with the laundry pile having become smaller and not as much 'noise' in the evening (that's what you get when you have gaming children with friends all around the globe, time zones.... ).

Now we also have the festive season approaching and I do love to designing one-of-a-kind cards for my friends and family. With the Peace & Joy Bundle, the process is made seamless! This bundle includes the 19-piece Peace & Joy Stamp Set and the 9-piece Joy Dies. As you know, not only will you receive 10% off both products when you purchase the bundle, but you’ll have a variety of coordinating elements for endless seasonal projects! 

I enjoy using the Peace & Joy Bundle because it offers everything I need to send warm winter wishes to my loved ones. These days, handmade cards are far and few between. This year, make your cards stand out: add a unique, personal touch with the Peace & Joy Bundle.  When you purchase the bundle, as long as you allow contact when ordering, I'll send you a tutorial on how to create these two beautiful cards.


Don't forget to top up your favourite papers that are in the paper sale, there is 15% off and this is a great time to get your favourites.



Don't forget also, if you are looking for a crafting gift, that my own special is still running for the new die cutting & embossing machine along with the magnetic plate - see here to order.
