Yesterday was the day I anticipate all month...the day my Paper Pumpkin kit arrives in my mailbox! I just get so happy when I see that beautiful orange box in there! What am I going to find in it this month? It's always a sweet surprise. I knew right away that I was going to whip up these projects to show for Simple Sunday...because Paper Pumpkin projects are always so quick and easy!
I love the August kit, Giftable Greetings! The stamp set is very versatile with several sentiments and accent pieces. It included a Night of Navy Stampin' Spot, ribbon, baker's twine lots of paper accent pieces, and printed card bases to make eight cards (with printed envelopes!), plus a beautiful gift box! The box is intended for cards, but I plan to use it for the next gift I need to give.
If you stamped everything up as shown in the instructions, these are the lovely cards and gift box and tag you would end up with:
Using only the pieces included in the kit, I came up with several alternative projects (top photo)...with the combination of printed pieces and stamp images, it was really easy to mix things up a bit. And I LOVE the color combination!
Sadly, if you are not already a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you will not be able to purchase this kit...which is why it's important to BECOME a subscriber before next month! Paper Pumpkin is a good idea for any level of stamper, especially for someone who doesn't have a lot of time for crafting but would love a simple, fun creative experience once a month. You'll be able to hand-make cards or gifts to have on-hand for a variety of occasions. With each kit you receive, you'll be starting a little collection of stamp images and ink colors to keep for future stamping projects.
Maybe you haven't subscribed yet because you don't know what it costs? Each kit is only $19.95 per month and that includes shipping! The best news is...the October kit is 50% off for new subscribers. You read that right...your October kit will only cost $10! If you love it (and I know you will!), you can continue your subscription month by month, or you can purchase prepaid subscriptions for three-, six- (save $1 per month) or 12-months (save $2 per month, BEST VALUE!).
Maybe you haven't tried it because you don't want to get roped into a subscription that you can't get out of. No worries! You can stop your subscription at any time...and you can even suspend it for a month if you need a break.
