Paper Crafting

Stamp Out Breast Cancer


If you’ve read my blog before or some of my posts for Metro Parent, you know I love paper crafting and stamping. I’ve got a few companies that are my go-to sources for creative supplies and quality products. Stampin’ Up! is high on my list for a variety of reasons. Their commitment to helping others is definitely one of them.

BCRF GraphicIn honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Stampin’ Up! will donate $1 for every active Paper Pumpkin, the company’s monthly crafting subscription service, subscriber plus another $1 for every new subscriber to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation now thru October 10. When subscribers receive their October kit, it will be in a one-time only pink box with the slogan “Stamp Out Breast Cancer.”

Many companies and brands offer pink-minded products during the fall to raise awareness for breast cancer. What I appreciate about the Stampin’ Up! offer is that it’s simple and straightforward. Sometimes that’s all you need.

Make sure to check out Stampin’ Up!’s website to learn more and sign up for Paper Pumpkin if you’re not currently a subscriber. Your participation now will help the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the future.

Custom Stamps for All Occasions


With any job, from craft projects to home repair, you need the right tool to get the task completed. Over on Metro Parent I’ve put together a collection of stamps from Stampin’ Up! that cover a wide range of occasions, from needing a sympathy card for a child to celebrating a fabulous teacher. Head over there to see my favorites.
