    Journal – Old Paper Pumpkin – part 1

    I wanted to work on the new Journal (pg 73) that is part of the Pressed Petal Suite (152193) wouldn’t you know… so busy making sure I did not forget anything on my orders for customers, that I forgot to order the Journal (149588). So making the best of it… I decided that maybe this OLD Paper Pumpkin could work. I have been wanting to put something together with parts of this kit anyway… Knowing that the plan was to use the Pressed Petal DSP (149500), a few colors needed to be changed. Using Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry. The patterns did not go either, but…

    Lets talk numbers….

    Have you every thought about owning your own business?? Have you ever thought you could find a tribe of people that just get you?? Have you looked? I want to share a few things….. I had decided a long time ago that I was not artistic. And trust me I knew, my Mom and Sister have an amazing talent, paint sculpt and lets just say I knew I was NOT artistic. I can also say that I even felt disconnected because of this. This went on for several years, well into my 30’s even. Until stamping came into my life…. Stamping and Stampin’ Up! All you need to do is…
