Today I want to talk about Paper Pumpkin. I’ve talked about it before on my blog but there have been many changes to the Paper Pumpkin program in recent months. I will be very honest with you, I have joined and rejoined PP several times. I wasn’t overjoyed by the kits and decided that it just wasn’t for me. If I was going to recommend it to you, I wanted to try it and see what I thought.
I have signed up again. Why? When I went to the Stampin’ Up! Convention in July, demonstrators were able to look at some upcoming kits. I absolutely loved what I saw. I couldn’t take pictures because we went through a room that was curtained off and picture taking was not allowed. I immediately signed up again as soon as I returned home from Convention.
When my kit arrived last month, I was very impressed with how much was in it, much more than in the kits I had previously ordered. You can make the projects as they are intended or change them up. Stampin’ Up! even has a video each month (see below) that shows you how to make the projects as well as everything included in the kit. At the end of my post, you can see a card I made with the kit, but I made some changes.
There’s a special going on right now, but it expires this Wednesday! If you join before this date, your first two months will be 50% off!! After that, you can continue or you can cancel your subscription. Why might you want to subscribe?
- Each month you can create the Paper Pumpkin surprise with everything you need.
- You will receive a Stampin’ Spot (small ink pad). It gives you a chance to try some new colors and see if you like them
- You’ll add new and exclusive stamps to your crafting supplies
- CUTE projects!!!!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me. You can visit the Paper Pumpkin site and look around by clicking here. If you decide to join, please choose me as your demonstrator. Be sure to check out the video below and see one of the cards I created!
Here’s the card I made with the kit. I took a piece of Whisper White (see picture below the card) and sponged it with Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. These colors remind me of a popsicle I used to eat when I was a kid. Back then they were called Missiles. Delicious on a hot day! Back to the card . . . . then I glued that piece to my Daffodil Delight card base, put Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Hello base and attached it! Just another look using some of the elements of the kit. My little polka dots were made using a stamp in the kit.
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you have questions, please ask!
