Today I’ve been working on my Paper Pumpkin Kit, Sweet Sunflowers, August 2022. I have to say I’ve been receiving Paper Pumpkin Kits by Stampin’ Up! since they began selling them and this kit is the very best one yet! In case you don’t know about Paper Pumpkin, let me give you a little information.

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. We’ll surprise you with projects like cards, gift packaging, home décor, and more for just $23.50 a month (shipping included). Talk about happy mail!

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. At other times, it may be home décor, gifts, or just treat packaging. No matter what it is—we promise you’ll love it, or we’ll make it right! For more information on Paper Pumpkin, click here. Make sure you scroll all the way down to see a video of this month’s kit.

When you sign up, you’ll be asked to select a demonstrator—someone who runs their own home-based businesses selling creative products that inspire people and give them helpful ways to enhance their lives. A demonstrator is there to help if you have any questions about your Paper Pumpkin subscription and can introduce you to other products and techniques. They can be involved as much or as little as you would like—to help you have the best creative experience
possible. If you decide you’d like to give Paper Pumpkin a try, I would really appreciate it if you would designate me, Terry Duncan, as your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!

I usually make a set of cards with the instructions given in the kit, but
then I like to make alternative cards just to see what I can come up with on my own.  A lot of times (like with this month’s kit), the card bases are stamped or colored on the front and the back, so I first cut them in half. Then I use a White Cardstock card base and maybe a coordinating color cardstock. Lately, the envelopes have been colored with different designs on the inside and/or outside. I hate using those pretty envelopes just to mail my card in when I can cut them up and used them as matching designer paper!

This kit has cardstock and paper for 9 cards. They are beautiful and have
designs on the front and the back. I cut them in half and now have cardstock for 18 cards. The envelopes have gorgeous flowers printed on the front and the back flap. I cut those on the fold line and now have 18 pieces of designer paper to use with the 18 card fronts and backs or I can use them with other matching cardstock! I’ve made 9 cards today and still haven’t used even half of the cardstock and paper! Of course, you can use the stamps from the stamped set included with the kit to stamp even more cards.
