  Lately I have been feeling un-inspired. I want to be in my craft room but it seems like everything I make, I can’t get quite right. While playing around with the Lift Me Up bundle in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog, I was stamping in black and gold and red… pretty much every colour of the rainbow. And then I finally used silver embossing powder. BAM. That’s all I needed to get the wheels turning.  I stamped in silver and then I did some die cuts in silver foil.  I was really impressed how the silver foil Up and Away Thinlet die ran through the Big Shot with ease.  This particular card has a lightly water coloured background using the tempting turquoise Stampin’ Up! refill ink. This gave it a look as if it was a sky. Many of you know that I die cut and stamp…

  I plan. I set goals. I have trackers and to do lists.  I have many journals and agendas.  I’ve even dabbled in digital; however, I always go back to pen and paper. I am goal oriented and when I saw the Stampin’ Up! December 2016 My Paper Pumpkin kit, I knew that I needed to use it to get a little more organized.  The holidays cause me to spin in a downward spiral where I don’t know what is coming or going in every aspect of my life.  By the time the holidays are over I am craving routine and organization. This kit has plenty of paper, transparencies, washi tape, a rotary stamp and a Stampin’ Up! write basic black marker. So what’s My Paper Pumpkin?
