I couldn't end my week of OnStage without showing you my final swap. This one was for my Stamping Bee team swap at dinner on Friday night. We had so much fun! We invited the Craftastics team to join us and 20 of us went to dinner at Pike's Old Fashioned Soda Shop. We had so much fun...wish you could have been there with us!
My card today uses the Tropcial Chic Stamp Set. Since the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper is retiring, I chose to stamp the background using Pear Pizazz, Bermuda Bay, and Highland Heather instead of using the paper.
Speaking of retiring paper...ALL the Designer Series Paper is retiring this year. Take a look and see which one's you need before they're all gone.
Base: Bermuda Bay, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Layer 1: Highland Heather, 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Layer 2: Whisper White, 5" x 3 3/4"
Layer 3: Bermuda Bay, 1" x 3 3/4"

Pa I'm in the midst of a big home improvement project right now, which didn't leave me a lot of time to be creative for this week's Crafty Saturday Facebook Live. No worries, Paper Pumpkin came to my rescue!
October's Paper Pumpkin has such pretty fall colors! And it's so on trend right now, too! Just yesterday, I saw tons of DIY decorating ideas with feathers!
If you're new to Paper Pumpkin, it's monthly kit that's delivered right to your door. In addition to a full tutorial and video, each moth you receive a unique stamp set, ink spot (mini ink pad) and all the supplies you need to create fun and cute paper crafting projects. Plus, if it's you first month, you also receive a free clear stamping block, that you can use with subsequent kits as well.
My favorite kits of the year are the holiday kits. Look at this pretty box! I can't wait to see what's inside it. If you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin by November 10, you'll receive this cute box and all the goodies inside it. Just in time for something fun to do at Thanksgiving. Imagine having a few of those around for people to work on while they wait for the turkey to finish cooking? Or put a few out on the kids table for something to do after dinner.
Paper Pumpkin...there's something for everyone inside!

As many of you know, I took my sister with me on the Stampin' Up! incentive cruise to Alaska. The morning we cruised the fjords was simply amazing. Since we had our own balcony stateroom, we ordered room service and spent the morning sipping coffee and having breakfast, surrounded by the rugged beauty of the glacier. We had two sea days ahead of us, and after two full days of Alaskan excursions, we were ready to take it easy and relax and enjoy the scenery. I'd anticipated and planned for this, and brought out the June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Broadway Star. We went up to the Viking Crown Lounge, grabbed a table up front at the windows, and crafted while we cruised, watching for whales off the bow of the ship.
I love the ease and portability of Paper Pumpkins when I'm traveling. This isn't the first time I've grabbed one of those iconic orange boxes and tucked it into my carry on. They're compact, light weight, but boy are they full of fun! Take a look for yourself.
This particular card is going out to Heather, one of my Stamping Bees. She hit her first milestone yesterday and I couldn't be more proud of her! Hip! Hip! Hooray for Heather!
I love celebrating my Stamping Bee Team. They're such an amazing and talented group of crafters. Won't you join us? I'd be happy to welcome you to the team!
