Today I am sharing four cards – two different fun-fold that are a little more elaborate. One of them I CASED from fellow demonstrator, Vy Tran. You are gonna LOVE it! She shared her card in the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club on November 21st and I fell in love. (Click here to access her downloadable PDF Tutorial.)

MINI STAMPIN’ CUT & EMBOSS MACHINE UPDATE
If you recall the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines on pages 170-172 in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog weren’t quite ready with the launch of this publication in June. The larger one debuted on September 1st, but there were further COVID-19-related delays with the mini machine. Well…good news! The mini machine is available to demonstrators right now. And on January 5th it will be available to everyone! So keep that in mind when planning your wish lists and purchases.
CURVY CELEBRATIONS IS HERE!
There are some fabulous products debuting in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog that have been released early and are being offered along with some coordinating exclusive Christmas products. Click here to see these Curvy Celebrations products in my online store! Click here for the informational flyer. You can get your hands on any or all of them November 3-January 4.
