Happy Birthday, Paper Pumpkin!


Cheers to seven years!

I began subscribing to Paper Pumpkin right when it started, and I can’t believe that next month it will be celebrating its 7th birthday!  How time flies!  It’s amazing to see the progression of this product over the years.  I really love getting my box each month and opening it to see what the project is.  And the great thing that has happened since PP has grown in popularity, is that there are specific Facebook groups where you can see how to make alternative projects if you want to really stretch your imagination!

If you aren’t familiar, Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up! is a crafting subscription kit that delivers creativity to your door every month. Each box includes everything you need to make a stunning project.  If you do month to month or subscribe to 3, 6, or 12 months, you can choose to skip a month anytime you want.  You just have to log on to your Paper Pumpkin website BEFORE the 10th of each month and choose to skip that month (you need to do this each month if you want to skip multiple months).

And since this March signifies an exciting milestone, SU! wants to thank everyone who has helped us along the way, they are including an additional FREE stamp set with every March kit. This means that every subscriber will receive two stamp sets!  The March 2020 kit will arrive in an exclusive, specially-designed box that you will love! Think daffodils, raindrops, and a fresh spring vibe.  So it’s really a great time to jump on board with Paper Pumpkin!

Here’s a little more info for you.


What’s Inside?

Every kit includes an exclusive stamp set, ink spot, and embellishments to create a predesigned project. At least six times a year, we send an all card kit with eight or more cards. Sometimes the kit includes cards plus gift bags, banners, treat bags, or boxes. Other times, it’s home décor, giftables, or just treat packaging. No matter what it is—we promise you’ll love it, or we’ll make it right!  And your very first kit will include an acrylic stamping block that you will use with any additional boxes that you subscribe to.


When does it ship?

Treat yourself to a crafting surprise every month. Because sometimes the best way to get creative is inside the box—the little red box that arrives at your door around the 20th of the month. We make it fast, easy, and fun for you to enjoy your favorite hobby—creating! Subscribe by the 10th of any month to get your first kit delivered that month.

How do I subscribe?

Looking Up All Inclusive Card Kit

Yesterday I attended a class by fellow demonstrator, Patricia Todd.  She featured the all-inclusive card kit, Looking Up.  If you aren’t aware, SU! offers several all-inclusive kits.  They have every single thing that you would need to create multiple cards, as you can see from the picture below.  They even include a storage box for your finished cards.  One of the things I love about kits is that you can follow the instructions exactly as they are, or use your own creativity to come up with different designs.  They are great for the beginner through advanced crafters.  And they are a great value as well.   With this kit, you would make 15 cards for just $27!  That’s less than $2 per card.  And after you use the materials in the kit, you would still have the stamps, ink and acrylic block so that you could continue to make additional cards with materials you may have at home.   And if this kit just isn’t your style, we have other all-inclusive kits available as well. You can see those kits here

AND, I am considering offering this kit for my April class! It would be a pre-paid RSVP so that the kits could be purchased and ready for the attendees. Would this be something that interests you?  Drop a response on this post and I’ll randomly draw a lucky winner to receive one of the cards I created yesterday 😊

Here are just a few of my finished cards from the class.  Trish had some extra cardstock that matched the colors used in the kit, along with some extra stamps and dies for us to use so that we could “go off the page” so to speak, for our own creations 🙂


Did you know that you can have a kit party?  You could plan a fun crafting night (or day!) with your friends using these kits.  Just decide on which one you’d want to make, or have your friends pick their favorite.  Then we can schedule a time to get together to assemble the kits.  I would bring along some extra stamps, dies, cardstock and inks for you and your friends to use.   Contact me for more information!

Thanks for stopping by!
