Holiday Catalog Product Shares

Have you gotten your hands on this new catalog yet? If the answer is no make sure to message me your address and I will pop one in the mail for you. If they answer is YES what is your favorite product??? I will share mine… the cat stamp, the cat dsp, the Christmas stamps, the pumpkin thinlets, the well everything! I love that Stampin’ Up! produces such high quality and on trend products for us to use.

Ahhhh if only I had no budget and I could spend whatever I wanted to I would just buy the whole catalog (wish there was an item number for that) but alas we all always have a budget.. SOOOOO for all of you that want everything like me I came up with a solution for you!! I will be creating a product share that you can take part in. Time is limited though and you must let me know by September 8 if you want to purchase a share. I have to have at least 4 people join in order to place the order. I will place the order and once I receive all the products and cut everything down I will mail them out to you.

So what do you get?

52 pcs of Cardstock: These will be cut either in half to make a card base or down to a 6X12 (if you        would like them pre-scored as card bases just let me know. I will gladly do this for you.

104 sheets of 6X4 Designer Series Paper

29 Embellishments ( A selection from the catalog but at least 1 of each)

6 Whisper White 3×3 Envelopes

1 piece each of Red and Silver Glimmer paper

1 piece each of the green and red Be Merry Kit Ornaments

20 Black Rhinestones

348 total inches of sample of all ribbons (depending on ribbon type you may receive more or less stretches of ribbon)

Plus a small FREE gift from me.

The price for all of this is just $65 which is a great value. If you would purchase all of these items on your own without having them broken up you would spend over $300. Remember we will only do this if we have at least 4 people sign up. Please email me at info@ papergears.com and let me know that you would like to join. I will then send you an invoice over Paypal for payment.You will only receive goods once payment is received.

Make it a great Stamping day!

A Giftable Christmas

Hello!! As some of you know that have been following me, my husband and I just moved to Charlotte, NC.. and when I say just moved our moving truck showed up last Sunday. Needless to say trying to find all my crafting supplies to put together a card and finding a good surface to do it on has been interesting.

The theme for this hop was to re-create a card that you created in your early days as a demo. I had to really think about what my first cards looked like and then I found a picture… uhhh was it awful but that is ok we all have to start somewhere right??

Now for the hop. Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy hoping around and getting inspired by these wonderful demos. And if you are in the NC area or really anywhere make sure to take advantage of all the perks that are out there to being a demonstrator and join us!

So this is the front of my card:

I am using the new Quilted Pattern Paper (available Sept 1) to create 2×2 “presents” for the front of the card. I like for things to be in 3 so I had to have 3 boxes. I played around with the design (since the original version did not look good at all) and finally came up with this. I love that this is a little bit more classic Christmas vs modern. I also added the mini gift bows to each of the boxes. I like the clean and simple look and decided to put the sentiment on the inside.

I used also another new stamp set Merry Little Labels (again available Sept 1) and Real Red ink. I started at the top and just continued to stamp down. The technique is stamping off but I also like the look it gives to the side of this card.

This card is perfect for a beginner because there is not a lot of materials that you need to get started and you can make a lot of these really quickly. And if you are like me you should really start whipping about 10 of these out so that you will be ready for the Holidays.. just saying they will be here quick.

Deck the Hall Simplicity

Can you believe that the Holidays are around the corner? Me either but they are coming and if you are like me you want to send out hand made Christmas cards to everyone on  your list. The good thing is we still have about 10 weeks to get all those cards created and sent out in time for the holidays and without all the stress. So here is a super simple card that I created.

The beauty about this card is that it is great for beginners because all you need is this fun new stamp set (which you can get early) Carols of Christmas and then some Real Red ink and pair it with your favorite Christmas Paper. You can get all of these products now which is great and you could knock out 10 of these in an hour (talk about score right!! Christmas card sender of the year) I also love the little bow, I feel like it makes it look like a present.

Join me on Tuesday evenings in my private VIP Facebook Group that is open to everyone for fun FB Live events. This is the card that I show cased this past week and you can see how easily I put it together.

Mark your calendars 

Now until September 10 When you become a new subscriber you can try Paper Pumpkin for half off!! So I wanted to do something special for all my subscribers… so if you are a subscriber (new, old, restarting) you will also get a sheet of Stampin’ Dimensionals from me that you can use to create the above card.

October 14 is the first ever Paper Gears Retreat and space is limited. I hope that you will join me in a fun event where you will gain some more holiday ideas and fun items, prizes, and food!

Special Delivery Global Friends Hop

Hello!!!

I hope that this blog post finds you doing well. If you are new to my site Welcome!! and if you have been with me for a little bit and follow me through social media you will know that we are in the process of moving from MD to NC for a job change for myself. When I am not stamping, I am a Manufacturing Engineer for a large fortune 200 company. I am loving all the new and crazy challenges that work has to offer but it has taken a little bit of time away from stamping. Today should be the pack day of all of our things and hopefully next week we will receive it and can start unpacking again.

Anyways back to the card. I love the tulips hostess set that we have and love how it really pulls this card together.

This crate was inspired by my time in Amsterdam this year for our Onstage conference. There were so many tulips all around us and it always reminds me to take a step back and go a little slower through life. This card was created for a very special family member to celebrate her birthday! I hope she loves the card as much as I love her and making it for her.

The inside of the card is again very simple:

If you would like to also own this set all you have to do is host a party (either in person or virtually) or if you place an order of over $150 you can also use your Stampin’ Rewards to purchase them.

Also wanted to remind you that I am hosting a retreat in October that is open to all but space is limited! If you are interested in joining please message me. Prices will come available soon.

Have a great day! Make sure to keep hoping along and give Kimberly some love by either clicking on the arrow below or click HERE

Global Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop Children’s Card

Hello Friends!

If you are joining me from Susan Vilar welcome! I hope that you are enjoying this blog hop so far. If you are joining me because you are one of my customers I am so excited for you to join this blog hop! I am so excited to share my card with you today. Our hop theme was back to school and I decided to make a card for my godchild. She is starting Kindergarten this year and I thought that this card would be a sweet surprise for her.

So here is the front of my card:

I just love this super adorable set A Little Wild (Item #144344) and used the black ink pads to stamp them around. I used our Stampin’ Write markers to color in the bear and bees. I also thought that the sentiment was also fitting since I am so wild about her.

 

On the inside I decided to use our Angel policy stamp set Crafting Forever (Item # 143958) because I loved the scissors and the pens and brushes.

I hope that you enjoyed these cards and that you will continue to hop around. Please also ensure to subscribe to my blog to continue to get updates from me.

I also wanted to share with you all that I will be hosting a retreat in Charlotte, NC. I hope that you will join me. The cost and projects that we will be doing will be coming soon, but for now make sure to Save the Date!

Thanks for joining me,
Christina
