If you haven’t tried Stampin’ Ups Paper Pumpkin you are really missing out!! for only $20.00/month you can subscribe to receive a wonderful box full off EVERYTHING you need to create amazing cards and/or treat boxes. They come complete with instructions but of course you can use the supplies to create something completely different. I don’t send many Valentine cards so I made a few following the instructions, then I used the card base and inserts from the kit and the A Mother’s Flair stamp set to create this card. Each kit is unique and includes different techniques so you learn while you play, often my 8 and 6 year old grandchildren join me in the fun. There is ABSOLUTELY NO obligation, you can cancel without penalty any time you want.
