Paper Pumpkin To The Rescue!

I needed a few more thank you notes and it was Paper Pumpkin to the rescue! I love getting these all inclusive kits in the mail every month!  Many times I do my own thing with the supplies in the kit and it’s just nice to have everything precut and ready to go. It makes it quick & easy to create.  With my fractured elbow and limited mobility at the moment, I need easy! I used the Love Notes from the January Paper Pumpkin kit to make thank you notes.

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Thank You card idea using Heartfelt Love Notes - Jeanie Stark Stampin Up

The kit contained supplies for 16 projects and included the Heartfelt Love Notes Photopolymer Stamp set and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Spot.

I stamped the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set on the banner and adhered it over the heart.  I also stamped the inside with a sentiment from So Many Shells stamp set and used the scalloped die cut note cards (included in the kit) to write a personal message.  I love how these notes tuck in the pocket and tie with a bow.

If you are a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can purchase refill kits (while supplies last) from my online store.  The refill kit comes with everything except the stamp set and ink spot for just $8! What a deal…that’s just .50 a card (and that includes the envelope)! I will be buying more of these! You can buy the refill kit and use other stamps from your collection as I did for mine.

Here’s the video showcasing the intended projects but you can use them to tuck in all kinds of notes and/or candy treats, etc. (I am going to put a couple of Merci chocolates in each to give out at Physical Therapy this week.)

Did you know Paper Pumpkin and I share an anniversary? I joined Stampin’ Up in March  (during Sale-A-Bration to take advantage of the extra free gifts)!! This year will mark Paper Pumpkin’s 5th anniversary! Can you guess what anniversary I will be celebrating? Leave me a comment and the first person to guess correctly will receive some blog candy! March is going to be filled with all kinds of fun surprises!

Let’s Sale-A-Brate with Paper Pumpkin!

Paper Pumpkin is the monthly “fun in a box” kit offered by Stampin’ Up!  The kit includes EVERYTHING needed to complete the projects for the month.  If you follow my blog you know I love receiving my fun surprise in the mail each month!
Sale-a-Bration is the PERFECT time to renew your Paper Pumpkin subscription or try out these crafting kits for the first time.  During Sale-A-Bration, you can earn FREE Sale-A-Bration products with each prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription purchased.
When you buy a prepaid subscription you receive a “prepaid code” (via email).  Kit delivery begins once the code is entered in your account.  Use it now, use it later, or give it as a gift.  The codes never expire!

*A note to my current Paper Pumpkin subscribers who purchase kits on a month-to-month basis:

If you plan to continue receiving monthly kits, you may want to consider purchasing prepaid subscriptions (3, 6 and 12 month options available) and getting FREE Sale-A-Bration products.  Once you get your email code, you enter it in your Paper Pumpkin online account.  Entering the code will stop the monthly charge on your card and begin your prepaid subscription.  Once your subscription has expired, your credit card will again be automatically charged.  (The year subscription will save you $2 off the cost of the kit each month.)  And, you can still put your account on hold if you’ll be traveling or just want to skip a month. In that case, your subscription would extend for one more month.

New Paper Pumpkin Video and the Red Box Challenge

I enjoy getting together with my Paper Pumpkin players each month and sharing alternative project ideas using the kits.  Here’s a look at my seasonal displays for the Season of Style October and November kits.

I love the way these two kits coordinated and there was so much extra in the kits to create even more projects. I’m hoping Stampin’ Up! will offer coordinating kits again!  I love to make cards and gifts to match!

Here’s a look at the December Paper Pumpkin kit and how to assemble the cool cards!

I can’t wait to start creating with this kit! I am visiting family for Christmas and this box was packed in my suitcase so I can enjoy some “stampin’ therapy” while I’m away!

You can subscribe to paper pumpkin at any time; however, you need to subscribe by the 10th of the month to receive that month’s kit.  As a subscriber you can choose to purchase past kits as well as refill kits (available while supplies last).
