Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Kisses & Hugs

Welcome to the first Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop of 2022. It's always fun to create alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin kit each month, then join in the blog hop to share these projects with all of you. I am in love with the January Kisses & Hugs kit with its pretty colors and metallic gold accents, the fun fold cards, and sweet stamp set.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the Paper Pumpkin January 2022 Kit Kisses & Hugs.

I chose to make a Valentine collage with my Kisses & Hugs Kit. This project is easy to make and can be framed for hanging or to give as a gift or use it in a scrapbook. No matter what you choose, it'll be a special keepsake for yourself or a loved one.

Stampin'  Up! January 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Kisses & Hugs - Mary Knabe

All the hearts used and their decorations are from the contents of my kit. I added layers of Vellum card stock (8 1/2" x 8 1/2"), Gray Granite card stock (9" x 9"), Gold Foil (9 1/4" x 9 1/4"), and Blushing Bride (12" x 12"). I love the look of this collage - simple but elegant and fun and festive.

Stampin' Up! touches for Andrea's Bridal Shower

I've been a little quiet here on my blog and my social media channels over the last few days but for good reason. Sunday, Emily (my 25 year old daughter) and I hosted a bridal shower for Andrea (my 30 year old daughter). It was a wonderful afternoon celebrating the bride with family and friends and seeing so many people love on Andrea. It was so fun and such a joy to be able to put some personal touches on the day using Stampin' Up! products I love so much. From favors and decorations to even using my Stampin' Peace Studio to host the occasion. Here are some photos of this special day.

IMG_6224 (1)The XOXO treat boxes were add ons to the January Paper Pumpkin Kit Hugs & Kisses. I put chocolates inside each one and added a pretty Polished Dots Embellishment to each heart tag and tied with gold trim.

IMG_6224 (1)I used the Heart Punch Pack, white card stock, Create with Friends Stamp Set, Blushing Bride ink, Champagne Foil (retired) and Petal Pink with Gold Ribbon (retired). They were SOOOOO easy to make. Both favors got rave reviews from our guests.

IMG_6362 (1)"Love" was stamped using the Create with Friends Stamp Set.

IMG_6354 (1)

You may recognize this home decor piece I made before Valentine's Day featured in a blog hop. It too was made with the Hugs & Kisses Paper Pumpkin kit. I put it on a shelf in my kitchen to repurpose it for the bridal shower.

IMG_6224 (1)

I used the January Paper Pumpkin Kit Hugs & Kisses to make banners also. I put several of the fun fold card bases together with ribbon to create the many banners I used to decorate my living room and shelves in my Stampin' Peace Studio.


IMG_6224 (1)Do you recognize these? I used our Celebrate Today Magnetic Board Kit to make this collage wall over a sofa in my living room where I showcased Andrea and Jon's engagement pictures. This kit is so versatile. I'll be able to change out the background papers and photos for future family events, special occasions, and holidays. The magnetic board and gold metallic clips will make it easy to do so.


IMG_6224 (1)

I purchased a photo box and wrapped it with Petal Pink Striped Organdy Ribbon. Can you guess what I put inside? Postage Stamps and Thank you notes. Lots and lots of thank you notes I made for the bridal shower and the wedding. This was one of my gifts for the bride.

IMG_6378 (1)

Stampin' Up! Notes Cards and Envelopes make putting together such a gift easy and inexpensive.

IMG_6237 (1)How many kisses for the Mrs. do you think are in the vase decorated with SU! Blushing Bride Ribbon? Guests used the white hearts with gold trim also from the Hugs & Kisses kit to write their guesses on. And of course, Basic White Thick and Blushing Bride card stock were used to make the sign. There were 221 kisses in the vase. 218 was the winning guess. PS. I kept foil on the top so I wouldn't be tempted to eat any of the chocolates. I love sweets, all sweets, especially chocolates.

IMG_6263 (1)I'm so proud of my girls and am grateful for the love and happiness they bring to my life. I never knew having adult children would be so much fun!

IMG_6265 (2)Andrea and her future sister-in-law and mother-in-law.

IMG_6376 (1)More photos of the happy couple. The cards on their were made with contents from the Celebrate Today Magnet Board Kits.


IMG_6237 (1)
Does anyone recognize this Designer Series Paper? I used Modge Podge to adhere 12" x 12" DSP to 12" square stretched canvases. These were hanging in my living room until I recently moved them to the sitting room off my Stampin' Peace Studio.

IMG_6360 2 (1)

IMG_6237 (1)I have a beautiful antique dining room set that once belonged to my grandmother then my mom. Since moving to my house in Columbus, I only have a small eat in kitchen and no longer have a separate dining room. The set is too big for my kitchen space and I didn't want to have it in storage so have incorporated the hutch and buffet into my Stampin' Peace Studio. They house my china and are used to display cards and other hand made crafts. It was used to serve the buffet lunch for the bridal shower.


IMG_6237 (1)I set up a couple of small table around my work space for salads and drinks. You will recognize my craft space behind the tables if you watch my Facebook Lives. I love that I can use and share my Stampin' Peace Studio in a variety of ways.


IMG_6243 (1)

I have 3 of these shelving units in my studio that I use for display and storage. On this one I hung more banners created with the fun fold card bases from the Hugs & Kisses Kit and displayed a few pictures of Andrea and Jon and a Love collage I made for Valentine's Day last year.

IMG_6241 (1)I had fun seeing Andrea take in the set up and all the personal touches for her bridal shower for the first time. I kept it a secret until she arrived Sunday.
IMG_6244 (1)I ended up buying this set of decorations for a pop of color on this big blank wall.


IMG_6243 (1)Pots of succulents and gift cards served as both center pieces and game prizes.


IMG_6243 (1)This game was a HUGE hit. It was fun hearing stories and memories shared as everyone tried to guess the ages of the bride and groom in the photos. 
IMG_6247 (1)I used the SU! heart punch to punch Blushing Bride hearts to number photos of the bride and Soft Succulent hearts for the groom's photos.
IMG_6247 (1)


IMG_6247 (1)
Another set of DSP canvases to add some color and personality to the back corner of my Stampin' Peace Studio.

 

I realized I forgot to take pictures of the desserts - lemon bars made by Emily, a chocolate brownie strawberry trifle made by me, and heart shaped cookies made by our dear friend Rosie. They were all delicious.

 

Thanks for visiting. I appreciate the opportunity to share with you a glimpse of this special day in my life and the way I was able to incorporate my love of creativity and Stampin' Up! into the celebration. Perhaps, I have inspired some of you to add some of your own creative touches to your special occasions and holidays.

Stampin' Peace Hugs to you all.

A Lovely Engagement Card

In case you haven't heard...there's going to be a wedding in my family. Andrea said yes to Jon's proposal on July 10th. I'm so excited for this couple. I've never seen my daughter as happy as she has been the last year and a half since she met Jon, and I'm happy to have Jon as a son-in-law. 

Andrea & Jon's engagement

Here is the card I made for Andrea and Jon congratulating them on their engagement. I used 2 brand new products from the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog launching August 3rd - the Strong of Heart Stamp Set and Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I love the silver heat embossed imaged colored with Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.

How blessed I am to be Mom to Andrea and her sister Emily, and now I get to welcome Jon to our family. I'm looking forward to lots of love and laughter as we plan for Andrea and Jon's wedding. 2022 will be a BIG year with the wedding and Emily's graduation as a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

Wishing you a day filled with love and laughter. Thanks for visiting stampinpeace.com.

PS. We have a wedding date and venue! 


Be My Valentine Pop Up Card

Pop-Up Cards. We all love them, but how do you make them you might ask. Today's post shows you how quickly and easily you can make your own pop-up cards. It's fun and easy to do when you follow along with my video demonstration. I hope you enjoy watching this Video Replay of my February 5th Facebook Live in my Stampin' Peace VIP Group and find it helpful in creating your own Pop-Up Cards! Trust me when I say the people who receive your pop-up cards will love them and be filled with delight and awe.

Black, White, and Real Red - a classic color combination for Valentine's Day and Love! The True Love Designer Series Paper is all black & white with floral prints on one side and geometric prints on the other side. Pair it with Real Red for classic Valentine cards as I did on these Pop-Up cards I made for my daughters or add a punch of your favorite Stampin' Up! color!

I made the treat boxes below for my daughters to coordinate with their pop-up cards above. I used True Love Designer Series Paper with the Love You Always Treat Boxes and filled with chocolates and a Graeters Ice Cream git card.

Wishing you lots of love on this Monday. Here's to a brand new week filled with possibilities make it great.


True Love Happy Anniversary Card

Black and white with a pop of color! That's what this card featuring the True Love Designer Series Paper is all about. The True Love Designer Series Paper features floral prints and geometric patterns in black and white making it versatile enough to use for just about any reason or occasion. Add a pop of color to it, and it's even more amazing to create with.

For today's card, I combined the True Love Designer Series Paper and Always in My Heart Bundle. Pops of color were added with Sponge Daubers and ink pads in Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Highland Heather. Tearing the DSP and popping up the curvy Happy Anniversary banner with Stampin' Dimensionals are two ways of adding even more detail and interest to this pretty card celebrating love.

I hope you like this card. If you'd like to re-create this one or create one of your own similar to this, I've prepared a Free Project Sheet for you.

So many details make this card amazing - the geometric pattern of the DSP and floral print with added color, torn edge of the DSP, stitching and folds of the Highland Heather banner, simple Matte Black Dots. Simple things to make a stunning impact taking this card from good to great.

You Had Me at Hello

Here's a quick and easy card to tell someone you love them. It uses the black and white True Love Designer Series Paper with a pop of Magenta Madness.  To make the card front, I cut a piece of 4" x 6" True Love Designer Series Paper, tore one end towards me and flipped it over, adhering both pieces to the card front. I stamped and die cut the heart with the Always in My Heart Stamp Set and Floral Heart Dies. To finish off the card, I added Matte Black Dots. It's a simple card that makes a big impact, and is great for Valentine's Day, anniversary, and more.

Stunning Love Always Banner

The beautiful project I demonstrate in this video replay of my January 22nd Facebook Live can be used as a Fun Fold Card AND lovely piece of home decor for Valentine's Day. The products of the Lovely You Always Suite are showcased beautifully in this stunning project that is made quickly and easily with my video demonstration and tips. I hope you love this special project of mine and are inspired to create one of your own. 

Swap out the "Be My Valentine" on the 4th square of this banner and use it for a card and/or decoration for anniversary, engagement, bridal shower, or wedding. No matter the reason or occasion this stunning love banner will be admired by all.

 

This project was difficult to photograph with the reflections of the Blushing Bride Foil Sheets and the beautiful metallic accents of the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper. The banner is even more lovely in person - so very elegant yet quite simple to make. Love You Always Suite by Stampin' Up!

 

I love mixing and matching the Floral Heart Dies and Always Dies in the Love You Always Suite for this beautiful project.

Love You Always Suite by Stampin' Up!

The "Be My Valentine" sentiment was stamped in Rococo Rose ink on Blushing Bride card stock. Using the darker ink made it coordinate better with the metallic details of the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper.
