Happy New Year’s Eve!! The last day of 2018, wow! Again, this year went by really fast! Do you have any resolutions? I know, we always make them and hardly ever keep them. Mine is to enjoy life more in everything I do no matter what! So with this being New Year’s Eve, I thought using the stamp set from the December Paper Pumpkin Kit was perfect. For those that don’t get the kit, this month’s kit was a calendar. Perfect for this month. I still need to finish mine, but I knew I needed to create my New Year’s card with the stamp set. Here are the measurements for my card:

  • Card base in Thick Whisper White cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Pool Party cardstock cut at 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White cardstock cut at 3″ x 4″

When I think of New Year’s projects I always think of gold and glitter, but with the color combination in the kit, I thought I’d stick with that. I stamped the little images randomly in both colors, then stamped the sentiment in Pool Party. I adhered it to the Pool Party layer and added that beautiful Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, then added it to the card base. Now since there wasn’t a lot of bling in the ribbon, I added the rhinestones. Love me some bling! If there’s anything here you would like to order, just head over to my online store. Don’t forget to check out the Year End Closeout items and the Clearance Rack while you’re shopping. Those items are on a while supplies last status, so don’t miss out on your favorites.

Not sure what Paper Pumpkin is? It’s our monthly kit that comes to your door with everything you need to create some adorable projects. Your first kit even comes with a clear block. All the kits include an exclusive stamp set and an ink spot, sometimes 2 ink spots like this month’s kit. The kits is $19.95 plus tax and arrives in your mailbox around the 20th of each month. I try to post an alternate project each month to give you even more ideas for that month’s stamp set. If you aren’t a subscriber, now is the time to subscribe because the January kit will coordinate with the Animal Expedition Suite in the annual catalog. You’ll get everything you need to create 24 adorable treat holders. Perfect for all those coworkers or kids’ classrooms. You have until January 10th to subscribe to get the January Kit. There’s no obligation either, if you don’t like it, you can cancel at any time. But why would you? It’s the best Happy Mail you’ll get each month!

I’m excited to see what the new year holds for everyone. For us, we are putting our house on the market at the end of the week and moving out of Redding. I’m not sure where we’re going yet, but it will be somewhere here in the North State. So for the next 60-90 days it’s going to be crazy. With that thought in mind, my posting is going to be sporadic, so please be patient with me. I am going to try to keep my class schedule as it is, but you know how it is, sometimes things just happen. Have a great New Year’s Eve and don’t forget to stop by tomorrow for another CASE-ing Tuesday. We have some changes happening over at the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group and you don’t want to miss them!
