Old PP Kit


While decluttering my craft studio I found an unopened Paper Pumpkin kit so I took a break and put the cards together.  I think I am all caught up now with the exception of the most current My Paper Pumpkin kit which I plan to do soon for Valentine’s Day favors.

Conversation Hearts


Today’s post is a sweet alternate way to use my January Cute Conversations My Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Rather than making the heart garland or treats as proposed in the kit, I decided to pair the big hearts with the Stampin Up It’s My Party DSP paper stack # 140552 from the Occasions catalog and the Cherry On Top #138443 DSP from the 2015-2016 annual catalog.  The hello greeting is from the Hello #141240 stamp set in   Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog and the You’re Sweet sentiment is from the Cute Conversations paper pumpkin kit.

The Hello stamp set is free during sale-a-bration for every $50 spend in merchandise, you earn free product from the SAB catalog.  However the Hello stamp set and a few other items will be replaced with new items on Feb 16th so be sure to check out the limited SAB items and stock up.

Lucky Stars Ensemble

2014_10_21IMG_5036 I can thank my lucky stars that my son understands the power of a handmade card.  In fact before heading off to college he wanted some cards to have on hand in case he got a care package or happy mail (defined as a card with something inside).  He has always been trained to write a thank you note so I was glad to create a set of cards for him to have in his dorm in hopes that he will use them when the appropriate time comes.

These cards were created using the left overs from my July  paper pumpkin kit and blackberry bliss cardstock and in.

In case you don’t know what paper pumkin is visit the paper pumpkin website to check it out and contact me if you want to subscribe or purchase a pre-paid subscription.  Once you are signed up you will get your own paper pumpkin kit complete with all the ink, stamps, pre-cut and measured paper and embellishments to create your sweet projects.  Once you subscribe, you will anxiously await for your paper pumpkin kit to show up in your mailbox each month.

Nautical Thank You

2014_07_07IMG_1686 Today’s post is the gift card set that I made using the Sea Street #133988 stamp set. I was inspired my the card on page 42 of the 2014-2015 Stampin Up annual catalog.  Our friends daughter had a nautical themed wedding over the weekend and I bundled these cards in a package of 8 for a nautical wedding gift along with the card and money.  I used my envelope board to make a box and topped it off with a pinwheel from the Stampin Up June Paper Pumpkin kit.

Paper Pumpkin Pinwheels

2014_07_03IMG_36622014_07_03IMG_3625Today’s post is my June Paper Pumpkin kit.  The June Paper Pumpkin made me think beyond the card and it was a welcomed surprise. This kit came with all the fixings to make 24 red, white and blue pinwheels.

What did I do with 24 pinwheels you ask? I made a small bouquet to give to my June hostess and then made up the rest and added them to mason jars filled with flag tootsie rolls to give to my friends, co-workers and family.   I saved a few back to add to a bouquet of fresh flowers.  I would love to hear how you plan to use your June Paper pumpkin pinwheel kit.

Would you like to join the Paper Pumpkin craze?

PRE-PAID PAPER PUMPKIN SUBSCRIPTIONS.  Don’t miss out on next month’s kit!  Purchase a 3, 6 or 12 month Pre-Paid Paper Pumpkin subscription for yourself or to share as a gift.  You can now add pre-paid subscriptions to any Stampin’ Up! order.

Pre-Paid My Paper Pumpkin Subscriptions


Starting April 23, 2014 you can order Pre-Paid My Paper Pumpkin Subscriptions!

Starting with June 2014’s kits, new subscribers will receive the current month’s kit along with a clear block instead of the Welcome Kit SU! was previously sending all new subscribers. This means you’ll be getting the latest and greatest kit and projects relevant to the time of year. The block that will come with your kit is a new thinner version that works perfectly with the photopolymer stamps.

Just order the subscription length of your choice, and you’ll receive a redemption code where you can use it to redeem your subscription on

Item Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscription Price (Shipping Included)
137858  1 month $19.95
137859  3 months $59.85
137860  6 months $113.70 — save $1 per month
137861  12 months $215.40 — save $2 per month

How It Works

  1. When your place your order, you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to redeem the prepaid subscription.
  2. Go to and enter the redemption code.
  3. Start enjoying your monthly Paper Pumpkin project kit the very next month!


  • It is encouraged to enter your payment information when redeeming the prepaid subscription so you’ll get to continue receiving their monthly kit after the prepaid subscription ends. (But you won’t have to put in their payment information if you don’t want to.)
  • This option IS available to current My Paper Pumpkin Subscribers.
  • Each Paper Pumpkin account can only use one redemption code at a time. For example, if you buys two six-month prepaid subscriptions, you’ll enter the first code and then after six months you can enter the second code.


Q: Can a current My Paper Pumpkin subscriber order a prepaid subscription?
A: Of course! After they order and enter the code, the prepaid months will be used up before any future shipments are charged. When the prepaid months are over, the subscription will continue and be charged monthly to the credit card on file. Keep in mind that if a current subscriber is already attached to a demonstrator, the existing subscription will remain with the original demonstrator.

Q: Can I buy a prepaid subscription with hostess benefits/stampin’ rewards?
A: Yes. A prepaid subscription can be added to either the free or half-priced hostess items.

Q: Can a prepaid subscription be ordered as a gift?
A: Yes. Although this isn’t officially a gift subscription program, you or your customers can buy a prepaid subscription and give it as a gift. You’d just purchase the prepaid subscription and when you receive the redemption code, share it with the recipient of your choice who can redeem the subscription at One thing to keep in mind is that the redemption codes will not work across borders. (So, someone in Canada could not gift a subscription to someone is the US and vice versa.)

Q: What happens when a prepaid subscription is not redeemed?
A: Codes will expire after three years (two years for California residents). At that time they will be turned over as unclaimed property.
