Watermelon Love!

Sweet Watermelon! And My Paper Pumpkin

If you aren’t subscribed to the All Inclusive Subscription of My Paper Pumpkin you are missing a great deal.

This month we are playing with the fruits of summer, Watermelon! This kit is a great way to not only escape from the worries of the world for the adults but also to get the kids involved to keep them out of trouble. The kit, as always, has a project with stamps, ink pad/s, papers (pre-cut) to complete the project, stickers, embellishments and adhesive.

This months kit…

iincolor ink pad set2016-18

Tada… Introducing… Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum

And last years In-colors for 2015-17 (these beauties will be here until 06/2017)

iincolor ink pad set2015-17

Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder

Although I was extremely attached to a couple of last years In-colors (I’m not mentioning that Blackberry Bliss was the bomb and Lost Lagoon was the best blue for Christmas scenes everrrr). I will miss them but I was also ready for something new and fun.

Speaking of New and Fun, this catalog is spectacular. I think it’s the best annual catalog Stampin’ Up! has done to date. they have truly out done themselves this year. The coordinating suites are too die for.

Here are just a couple peeks….

My Paper Pumpkin Special

Sale, Sale, Sale


Now is the time to get in on the fun of Paper Pumpkin.

You can save money on a 3-month subscription and get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item. Yeah!

I have subscribed to My Paper Pumpkin for over 2 years now and have never been disappointed yet. It is a wonderful surprise for me every month. I make sure I don’t spoil it by looking at the official Paper Pumpkin Video until I get my Kit in the mail.

These Kits are all inclusive, all you need is a pair scissors to possibly cut some ribbon or twine that is also included in the kits. They will come with everything. An exclusive stamp set that you can only get through My Paper Pumpkin, all your cardstock for the project pre-cut and scored (so just fold and go), An ink pad called a Stampin’ Spot (same colors as our big pads only smaller, travel size), All the cardstock stickers and embellishments (like rhinestones, clips, pearls, ribbon, sequins and more) to adorn your projects.

Here is a picture of our December 2015 Kit



Come on and join the fun of My Paper Pumpkin it really is good therapy. In 30-60 mins of crafting time (depending on how fast you work), alone or even with the kids, its a great escape from the everyday hum drum.

Great Therapy Time! It keeps me sane, well as much as possible.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day,

Stampin’ Up! has made contributions to RMHC of over $1,000,000. WOW!
Each year an exclusive stamp set is designed for the charity and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of that set are donated to the organization. 
This year’s set is Sprinkles of Life

The Great Escape

Hi, I’m Paper Pumpkin . . .
I can come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). 
I’ll help you to escape your life with some ink and paper fun.

I come in a sweet box, see…

but you’ll really love what you find on the inside:

Stamps, ink, paper, and accessories (buttons, stickers, twine, sequins, just to name a few) so you can create pinable projects.
Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up! is an awesome monthly kit program that anyone can enjoy!

Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep, a unique kit with cards, journals, décor, and more. Always something new and exciting! (We’ve even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)

Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
Are you ready for a creativity escape? Most kits can be completed in an hour or less.

So here’s the nitty gritty:
  • We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month. 
  • 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 10, we’ll send your kit around May 15. If you sign up on May 11, we’ll send your first kit around the June 15.)

  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!) You can’t get a whole project like these for $20 at the big box craft stores. We won’t mention any names here. lol. 
  •  There’s no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at any time. You can also skip a month or two if you need to.
So lets have some fun and sign up for your very own getaway now.
