A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop

6a0120a5bac552970c01bb09a9e178970d-400wi

Welcome to the September A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP! I am so excited to have you join in the hop whether you are stopping by from the amazing Audra Monk's blog or this is your first stop, I'm super excited to have you here!

The September kit is called LAYERED LEAVES and it is GOR-JEE-OUS!!!

Your kit includes:
• 8 embossed pillow boxes

Coordinating Stampin' Up! Colors: Blushing Bride, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Soft Suede

Here's my card - an alternate idea:

DSCN9048w

 

  • I added a Peekaboo Peach card base (8-1/2 x 5-1/2)
  • The pillow boxes are embossed with a flourish design - so pretty! I cut one to 2-7/8 x 4 and used it as a layer on my card front..
  • I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out the circle and mounted it on Dimensionals (included in the kit), adding one of the gold foil leaves to it.
  • I love the copper Baker's Twine - what a great addition to this card.
  • Add a couple of the die cut leaves and stamp the greeting in the bottom right corner and WAAA LAAAA!

 

DSCN9051w
 

My little box is the perfect size for a treat or gift card.

  • I cut the top and bottom off the pillow box.
  • I scored at 1/2" on the right side of the front of the box and then turned it over to score on the other side 1/2" from the edge.
  • Then I scored 1/2" from the bottom, cut the tabs and glued my little box together.

JOKE

Baseball

At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 9-year-old baseball players aside

And asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?"

"Yes, coach", replied the little boy. "

Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?"

The little boy nodded in the affirmative.

"So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't argue, curse the umpire, or call him names. 
Do you understand all that?"

Again, the little boy nodded in the affirmative.

The coach continued, "And when I take you out of the game so 
that another boy gets a chance to play, it's not a dumb-a$$ decision or that 
the coach is a jerk is it?"

"No, coach."

"Good", said the coach. "Now go over 
there and explain all that to your grandmother.”

Feature Friday - Guest Stamper Bailey

www.AStampAbove.com

I have a fun surprise for you today - a guest stamper! BAILEY has been a friend of mine for many years...12 to be exact and she loves to stamp! Bailey asked if she could help me make a video...what a great idea!

This is a fun card to make - as in - you can make up a whole bunch in a short amount of time! It's perfect for your Halloween cards and a great little project for you to make with your kids or grandkids too. Bailey used the SPOOKY CAT bundle along with the LABELS TO LOVE stamp set and EVERYDAY LABEL PUNCH shown on page 45 of the Holiday Mini Catalog.

www.AStampAbove.com

Please take a few minutes to watch our video here:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.

Can you see the splattering Bailey did on the background of this card?  And don't miss the embossed background with the POLKA DOT BASICS embossing folder. It adds that perfect dimension to the background.

Please leave a comment for Bailey - she'll be over the moon!

Giftable Greetings

DSCN0391W

Isn't this sweet? I made this cute card with the August Paper Pumpkin Kit called Giftable Greetings. I love coming up with alternate ideas using these kits - they are super fun! There were only 3 products I used to make this card that didn't come in the kit. I used the DECORATIVE RIBBON BORDER PUNCH, PLAYFUL BACKGROUNDS stamp set for the stripes and the DELICATE WHITE DOILIES. You'll find them pictured down below.

Stampin' Up! puts out a cute little video each month with every kit - here's the August kit:

Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

www.AStampAbove.com

www.AStampAbove.com

Welcome to my WINDOW SHEET SERIES - Video #5!!! While this project doesn't use the Window Sheets, instead I'm featuring the ACETATE BOXES from page 13 of the Holiday Mini Catalog - you can make your own boxes in various shapes and sizes from Window Sheets...this product just makes it so much easier! You'll find a PRODUCT LIST below with everything I used to make these gifts and when you click on the products it takes you right to my Stampin' Up! store where you can order or just view the details about each one.

This is such an easy way to dress up a little gift....belly bands can be so fun!

You can watch my video here and see how easy this beautiful box is to decorate:

Here's a close up of the leaves from the SEASONAL LAYERS THINLIT set of dies - oh my - they are soooo pretty and intricate. This set of dies has something for every season - definitely a GREAT buy.

Here's the packet of coffee I found - it makes a single pot and it's the perfect size to fill up the ACETATE BOX.

  JOKE

 

Cancel your credit card before you die. 

Be sure and cancel your credit cards before you die! This is so priceless, and so easy to see happening, customer service being what it is today.


A lady died this past January, and Citibank billed her for February and March for their annual service charges on her credit card, and added late fees and interest on the monthly charge. The balance had been $0.00 when she died, but now somewhere around $60.00. A family member placed a call to Citibank. 
Here is the exchange :


Family Member: I am calling to tell you she died back in January.
Citibank:  The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.

Family Member: Maybe you should turn it over to collections.

Citibank: Since it is two months past due, it already has been.

Family Member: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?

Citibank: Either report her account to frauds division or report her to the credit bureau, maybe both!

Family Member: 'Do you think God will be mad at her?'
Citibank:'Excuse me?'
Family Member:'Did you just get what I was telling you - the part about her being dead?'

Citibank: 'Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor.'

Supervisor gets on the phone:

Family Member: 'I'm calling to tell you, she died back in January with a $0 balance.'

Citibank: ' The account was never closed and late fees and charges still apply.' 

Family Member: 'You mean you want to collect from her estate?'

Citibank: (Stammer) 'Are you her lawyer?'

Family Member: 'No, I'm her great nephew.' (Lawyer info was given) 

Citibank:'Could you fax us a certificate of death?'

Family Member: 'Sure.' (Fax number was given)

After they get the fax :

Citibank:'Our system just isn't setup for death. I don't know what more I can do to help.'

Family Member: 'Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. She won't care.'

Citibank:'Well, the late fees and charges will still apply.'

(What is wrong with these people?!?)

Family Member: 'Would you like her new billing address?'

Citibank: 'That might help....'

Family Member: Odessa Memorial Cemetery , Highway 129, Plot Number 69.'

Citibank: 'Sir, that's a cemetery!'

Family Member: 'And what do you do with dead people on your planet???'

(Priceless!!) 
And you wondered why Citibank needed help from the Feds?

Gorgeous Gourds

DSCN0702

Isn't this a pretty card? I love all the fall colors. When summer is done and I have to accept that this time of year...I do love the colors of fall!!! This is a swap card I received recently and I knew I had to share it with you. It uses the PAINTED AUTUMN DESIGNER SERIES PAPER,  some VELLUM CARDSTOCK for the leaves punched with the new LEAF PUNCH and those STITCHED SHAPES FRAMELITS (again!) - did you get those yet? You certainly won't be disappointed when you do!

DSCN0703

This greeting (don't you love the fonts?) is coming from the GOURD GOODNESS stamp set. You'll find it below. And the pumpkins....they are from the designer series paper too - just cut them out!

DSCN0704

 

Here's the GOURD GOODNESS stamp set - it will stamp the most amazing "real life" looking pumpkins and gourds you've ever seen!

Here's a couple other cards made with this set...yummy!
