Aren’t surprises the best? It seems like there aren’t too many surprises anymore. When I became pregnant with my now one year old little girl, I didn’t want to find out ahead of time if she was going to be a girl or boy. My husband wanted to find out until a couple of my family members told him that it would be the biggest surprise he would ever get, and that it would be worth the wait. That changed his mind, so I didn’t have to! It was a wonderful surprise!
When I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I discovered a monthly surprise that I absolutely love. Paper Pumpkin is an all-inclusive craft kit that arrives on your doorstep once a month. Inside are all the materials for you to create a craft project in about an hour. I just received my ‘little orange box’ for this month, so I thought maybe you would want to come along with me and see what’s in this month’s kit!
Here it is! That wonderful little orange box, just waiting to be opened.
Let’s open it up and see what’s inside!
So nicely packaged with some pretty tissue paper…
Here’s this month’s stamp set and ink pad! Cute stamps!
And here’s the project! ‘Sew You’ card kits! How cute!
It’s not a real craft project unless your entire work area is covered!
Here are my finished cards! I thought they turned out really cute!
And some close ups…
So there you have it, some ‘Sew You’ cards! Here are project samples from some of the past kits.
Do you think you would be interested in trying out Paper Pumpkin for yourself? Here’s some info that might be helpful.
- What comes in the kit? That’s the great part…you never know! A few of the more recent kits have been for Valentine treats, card kits and decorated journals.
- Each month you are guaranteed a stamp set and 1 or 2 mini ink pads. It’s a great way to build up a few more stamp sets and ink colors. The first month you order, you will also receive a clear block to use with your stamps. Here are 4 stamp sets that have come with my more recent kits.
- Kits can be ordered for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months at a time. Try it once and see what you think!
- Sign up for a subscription here or purchase prepaid kits here.
What a great way to treat yourself to a little time away each month, a little time to relax, forget about the hustle and bustle, and create. You deserve it. Try it today!
