This is a collaboration between Stampin' Up! Demonstrators in the US, UK and Australia.

The Challenge is set on the 25th of the month on each of the organizers Facebook pages and will then have followup information on their blogs and YouTube channels.

The deadline for submission is 11pm on the 24th of the following month in your respective time zone.

This card features a few of my favorite products from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, and annual.

And the buffalo check stamp set is on trend with all the farm house decor, including Christmas.

Vlogtober Day 18 - Friends of a Feather Paper Pumpkin

I think that Paper Pumpkin speaks for itself.  However, I would like to point out a few things. It's a monthly subscription offered by Stampin' Up! for only $19.95 (plus tax in some areas). You receive you box after the 10th of the month, and it contains everything you need to complete the projects.

It's like getting a little happy mail every month.  The kits lately have been some of my favorites!!  I am excited for next months, as there is PLAID on the box.  That's a strong indication of what is inside!!!


The October kit contained some lovely materials to make these two beautiful cards. I am not into the feather trend as most are, but I am loving them on these cards.


If you are interested in subscribing to Paper Pumpkin, you can click here to start your subscription.  You can cancel at any time, but why!! Or you can skip a month as needed.

                

There are so many tutorials out there showing alternatives for the kit.  This gives you more opportunities to use the stamp set over and over again.
