Paper Pumpkin

Let this creative coach whisk you away to a 30 minute journey into creativity once a month. Emerge rejuvenated and invigorated with something to share or keep and enjoy. Everything you need (except adhesives) is included to create fun and unique projects you will love sharing with friends and family.

How it works:
Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Each provides the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!

Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, de?cor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and precut everything for you!)
Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
Each kit gives you a 30-minute creativity escape.
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 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we'll send your first kit around June 15th.)
A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!). \
There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
Starting in early March, we'll offer a Try-It kit if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month only.
Sign up for your monthly Paper Pumpkin starting Monday, January 14 by visiting and click Get it. Starting in early March, you can try Paper Pumpkin for one month by visiting our online store.

A Free Gift in Your Very First Kit

The Welcome Kit is the very first Paper Pumpkin you will receive in your first month of membership. The Welcome Kit includes a free gift-a clear acrylic block!

Q: Will the items in each Paper Pumpkin be available for sale individually?
Part of the fun of having a Paper Pumpkin membership is receiving exclusive products to play with! Most of the items in your Paper Pumpkin are exclusive, never-before seen products (can you say yippee?) You will, however, see a few tried-and-true products in your Paper Pumpkin that you can buy individually in the catalog.Q: Is there any other way to buy monthly Paper Pumpkin kits?
You need to be a member to receive the monthly Paper Pumpkin. Past kits will not be available at this time.Q: How do I see the upcoming Paper Pumpkin kits?
One of the best parts of your Paper Pumpkin membership is that you never know what is going to be in that beautiful red box. It’s like opening a present every month—we don’t want to ruin the surprise for you!
All kits that include stamps will use the Clear Mount format of rubber stamps. This is why your Welcome Kit includes our gift to you of a Stampin’ Up size D acrylic clear block.
Welcome Kit contains supplies for 4 embellished cards and includes the following as pictured. All follow on kits will not include a block but will include all materials & instructions needed (except adhesives) to complete that months project set.

Try It Kit – order # 132599 – $16.95 - available through your demonstrator or the online store lets you try the Paper Pumpkin experience for a single month. Buy one or as many as you would like to share or give as gifts. No commitment beyond your initial purchase.

Christmas Card Buffet

Christmas Card Buffet

Aren't food buffets wonderful, you go up and down the line and pick out what you want to eat. If you are still hungry you go back.  Well let's have a Christmas Card Buffet. 

Here is how it is going to work:
7 Cards for $10
I will design 9 or 10 cards and about 4 or 5 Christmas Tags. I will cut supplies for 12  of each design.   I will put supplies for each card in a clear shoebox with a sample card on top. 
You  pick a card and shoebox and make one or more of that card, and repeat-- til you get your 7 cards made.
If you want to make more, it will be $1.50 for any extra cards that you want to make. 
Note, you can make 7 of the same design or 7 different ones, it is up to you.  But because this is a buffet, just like the food may run out the card pack may run out too, so it is first come first serve. 

When - Saturday September 1st starting at 1 and ending at 4.  Please give me a call if you plan on attending. 

Christmas Ornament

Would you like to make the Christmas Ornament that is shown on the cover of the Holiday Catalog.  I will be holding a class (you pick the date).  I will supply all of the materials, you just bring your adhesive, bone folder, paper snips and glue gun.

Class price $15 (we will make 3 ornaments)
Purchase the Holiday Keepsakes Bundle which includes the stamp set and the framelets and receive the class free.
