I just signed back on with Stampin' Up! this past week and recieved my demo kit and much to my surprise it contained a Paper Pumpkin Kit! I was elated as I have not had the opportunity to try this relatively new product from Stampin' Up! that was launched last year.

Well, let me tell you... I am hooked!  The kit that I recieved was the February 2014 In The Bag Kit which had all the makings for 5 adorable gift bags. I did add a little twist by bringing in another color, Tangerine Tango, and a small flower stamp from the new Flower Patch stamp set to add a little more pizzaz. I did end up using the retired " Oh, Whale" stamp set as it worked with my theme, but I can only imagine how cute the tag could be utilizing some of the adorable flowers from the new Flower Patch stamp set. Quick and easy...just the way I like it and I hope you like it too.

Don't you just love the cute little clothspins. You can purchase them in a pack of 24 for only $3.95!

This bag will be filled with lots of sweet goodies to welcome my new neighbors across the street. I hope you are all having a great weekend!

Thank you!

Thought I'd pop in for a quick post today to say "Thank You" to my upline Mary Fish for featuring my clean and simple card on her blog today. Thank you Mary....You're the best! I whipped this card up in a jiffy using SU Eastern Elegance paper which is quickly becoming one of my favorites and a new stamp set called Polka Dot Pieces. 

Hope you are all enjoying your holiday weekend. Happy Labor Day!

Happy Stampin!
