Paper Pumpkin is Going Pink

To show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we're going PINK . . . or at least our October boxes are! And because we know our subscribers want to share the love too, we will be making a donation on their behalf to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Stampin' Up! will donate

So share with your friends that this a month to make a difference and get a kit to stamp together!

More About BCRF

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world's most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $550 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis, making it one of the largest non-governmental funders of breast cancer research in the world. This year BCRF has invested $58.6 million in research, to support over 235 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents, including $11.6 million to the international Evelyn H. Lauder Founder's Fund focused on metastasis. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness programs, BCRF remains one of the nation's most fiscally responsible nonprofits. BCRF is the only breast cancer organization with an "A+" from CharityWatch, and has been awarded Charity Navigator's highest rating of four stars 13 times since 2002.

New Stamps!

Fall has arrived and here are some projects from my late night stamping fun!

First is the "Happy Scenes" stamp set bundled with the Hearth and Home Thinlits.  Lots of versatility to this set as it has all four seasons in the set.  I think this spider is adorable! 

On the inside is a big "BOO" and a shaky/scary Halloween sentiment.

Product List

The "Thankful Forest Friends" stamps have the most sweet little animals: fox, rabbit and bear.  Isn't the "Into the Woods" Designer Series paper a beautiful background for this card?
