All About My Paper Pumpkin a NEW Stampin' Up! Monthly Kit

It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program  by visiting and click Get it. When you join be sure to mention my name so I can help inspire you each month with even more ideas to create with your kit. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!
Of course, you'll want to know more. So here's the nitty gritty:
  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.  (Starting in March)
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on May 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we'll send your first kit around June 15th.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!)
  • There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
  • Starting in early March, we'll offer a Try-It kit if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month.

Yes you read that right, my youngest Daughter is “Free to a good home” because she is clearly not related to me, and might belong to you.  You wonder how I came to this conclusion please read on to find out.  This morning she informed me that “Making CARDS is a waste of paper” then she went on to explain that “It takes trees to make paper and you kill trees” Lastly she goes on to say  “I am ruining the environment by cutting down trees that makes the paper.”

 I think she may have had a change of heart these past few days because I was not at home and was attending an AWESOME Leadership event with 1,500 of my closest stamping friends, and she was home having to clean her room with her Dad.  Or she has been misinformed that most paper is made from renewable sources. So if you think you might be related to her please drop me a message and I will let you know if you are a suitable new home for her.  But be warned she may not let you purchase any paper products, this would include not only paper crafting supplies but also paper towels and toilet paper(I am sure she will let you use leaves that fall off the trees, but she might need them for her compost pile.)  Please feel free to share if you know someone interested in a “Free to good home child”.

Paper Pumpkin Kit Mini Album

 As promised here is another post of what you can create with the kit.  This is a mini album that is super quick and easy to put together.

Your kit comes with two pieces of chip board, cut one in half and use it for the front and back cover.  I only used a little scrap of left over barkers twin and one sheet of Daffodil Delight Card Stock.  This Album is so cool with all it's envelope pockets and three dimensional accents.

Cover, I used ring binders to hold it together or some cute ribbon would work.
Cut the cards in half to create the pages for the mini book

Tear It Up with Paper Pumpkin

Here I altered this card a bit, I love the Paper Tearing technique and should use it more often,  I added a lot more ink splats to give it a more playful mood.  I can't wait to get home tonight from Leadership so I have all my tools to create more fun projects.  I will post them tonight!

Welcome to My Paper Pumpkin

This is the intended project cards for your first kit... It was just a few paper pieces and self adhesive die cuts a couple minutes ago and now it turned into a perfect greeting card to send. It gomes with two stamps, ink, and all the embellishments you need to a cute little box.  But the best part is, it comes to you with free shipping and handling. Go to and check it out!
