Several years ago I bought one of these storage drawers off Amazon to organize my embellishments. As my crafting has evolved, I just bought another one to store leftovers from my Paper Pumpkin kits. The hardest part was determining what categories to create. So after making several piles, I used my label maker to label each drawer. I love how the drawers can come entirely out, so I can move the order of drawers around, or carry one drawer over to my work space. Each one consists of 24 drawers, 4 rows across and 6 down. Here are the categories I created, in case it is helpful to get you started:
This month in VIP Club we made tealight easel cards.
The first one is my favorite using the Blossoms in Bloom bundle and vellum for the light to shine through.
I bought the tea lights on Amazon. The sentiment came from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set.
Just make sure to pop up with dimensionals so the easel can prop up.
The next two cards were made using retired products from the last Holiday Catalog, but aren't they cute!
I found yellow flickering tea lights, perfect for a fireplace, at the the Dollar Store.

If you are in the Indy area, contact me to join in! Here are the 3 cards we made this month...

This month, we met for a make-up VIP session, since VIP Club was cancelled in April due to the coronavirus. The Saturday and Sunday groups were combined for an optional Club, plus I opened this club up to guests wanting to check out the technique of the month: Northern Lights. You can check out this technique by searching on YouTube, but really it's quite easy! Just use daubers or sponges to add color and then apply a dark color over the ink, leaving streaks peeking out. I like to apply the streaks with the daubers and then use the sponges to apply the dark layer over top, applying with a good deal of pressure in a circular motion. Don't forget to add stars! I used Wink of Stella, drops of water with Water Painters, or a white pen. Here are the three cards we made and the supplies we used listed under each card:
If you are interested in joining the next VIP Club, message me to let me know! The Club meets either Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons, the last weekend of the month. The Club starts in September and goes through April (taking off the busy months of November and December). VIP members get the chance to try advanced techniques and get their turn at being the hostess for a month, earning free Stampin' Rewards!
By now, you've probably heard of Paper Pumpkin, the monthly subscription kit by Stampin' Up! where every month you'll receive a surprise kit in your mailbox with everything included to complete a crafty project! I've been a subscriber since inception in 2013, so I wanted to try to summarize everything you need to know into one blog post. Here's how it works:
How to Subscribe:
Dates to Remember:
Making Your Kit:
Love A Particular Kit and Want More?
If you are a current Paper Pumpin subscriber, you are able to purchase past kits. These are based on availability so some months there will be no leftover kits, some months there will be refills only (kit without the stamp set & ink), and some months there will be full kits. See what's currently available here on my website!
Gifting Paper Pumpkin:
Paper Pumpkin also makes a great gift! Consider buying a pre-paid subscription and then printing out this gift certificate. Just write the code in the blank (which will come in your email after you purchase).
