Stampin’ Up! Layers of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin

After a slight issue with the delivery (the local Post Office completely lost the bright orange box!!  Stampin’ Up! to the rescue…they sent out a new one ASAP), I finally got my February Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up!  I’d already seen it in photos online and I will say that I definitely like this kit much better in real life than in the pictures, it’s really cute!

February Paper Pumpkin - Stamp With Amy K

The February Kit is called Layers of Gratitude and the contents of the kit made eight accordion cards and eight little pockets to put them in.

This is what the cards looked like when they were all stamped and finished.  There are eight panels on each one (seven stamped and one for writing your note).

The kit included the seven piece Layers of Gratitude photopolymer stamp set (some cool images!), Pool Party and Daffodil Delight ink spots, 8 accordion card bases, 8 kraft boxes, 48 felt stickers, 6 yards of orange and white Baker’s Twine and adhesive strips to put the boxes together.

This kit took me about an hour to assemble and now I’ve got 8 thank you cards ready for giving!

Update from Stampin’ Up! Regarding Blendabilities Marker Availability

Stampin’ Up! just released an important update regarding the Blendabilities Markers.  Here is the update from them:

“We are experiencing a quality issue with our Blendabilities product line. Except for the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad Refill (item #133456), all item numbers have been turned off; this includes Blendabilities Sale-A-Bration item numbers.

At this time, backorders for Blendabilities will not be fulfilled.

We thank you for your patience and will update you as soon as we have more information.”

I believe that I have contacted everyone who has ordered a set of markers through me and is waiting for for them to arrive.  If you are waiting on markers and haven’t received an email from me, please let me know.  If the markers were chosen as a Sale-A-Bration item, you will get to select a different Sale-A-Bration item (that includes the new items coming out on Monday).  If you purchased a pack of the markers, you have the choice of either a refund or selecting a different product at the same value.  Hopefully the issues will be resolved, I’ve been having so much fun coloring with mine!

Blog Candy Winner!!

On a happier note, I’ve got a blog candy winner!!  Thanks so much for your nice comments, I do appreciate them.  It looks like many of you are looking forward to the new Sale-A-Bration items, I know that I am!

The Random Number Generator chose number 43.  Comment #43 was written by Joyce T.  Here is what Joyce said:

I love the card and basket. So feminine, especially the card. My favorite new Sale-a Bration item is the Natures Perfection stamp set, but all of them would be fun to have. Thanks

Congratulations Joyce!!  I’ll be packing up your blog candy this morning and shipping it out today.

  1. How could the Post Office lose a bright orange box! 🙂 Just kidding, they deal with so many packages and mail, I guess it can happen. Glad you were able to get a replacement, your cards turned out nice. Love the stamps they sent in this kit. Can use them anywhere, yay!

    • Thanks Jill! Glad that you liked the cards this time too…I was all sad when my little box of goodies got lost. I keep hoping that it will resurface and arrive at my house so that I’ll have a second set! 🙂
