Paper Pumpkin

Paper Pumpkin is a fabulous way to start building a stamp and ink collection. Each month Stampin’ Up! will send you a kit that has everything you need to create a project.  Every time I think the kits could not get any better…Stampin’ Up! wows me with a even better kit.  This is how I felt when I saw Decembers Kit.  (Each Kit is a Surprise!!!)


Yesterday, I shared a bit about my new obsession with the “planner” craze…I am at least obsessed with the idea of a beautiful “planner” that would inspire me to keep going, do more for others,  blog better, and stay organized.  These are the things I think  a “planner” would help make life easier.  But, looking at all the fun products out there maybe, it would be a lot of fun to create a “planner”.  With this in mind one of the ideas I have for a “planner” (I hate the word planner/ but, for the lack of a better word I will use it/ and yes, Organizer is just as bad!!!)  is to keep tack of the Liturgical year, my gratitude list, my ever growing prayer list, and many other things that are faith based.  A company called “The Catholic Planner” put this idea in my head.  But, I really wanted something that I could totally make my own.  So, one of the things I have been working on is deciding how to make this type of planner a reality.  One thing that I know I am going to use is the December Paper Pumpkin Kit as part of my Faith Planner ( I really need a better word,  Any ideas????)  I am going to use each card at the beginning of the month for my dividers.  Pretty and functional!!!!  Now, All I have to do is decided what size planner I want!


Stampin’ Up! is offering the 3 month pre-paid subscription for $55!!! Perfectly, priced to add a Sale-A-Bration item for Free.  So not only do you receive your paper pumpkin at a discount!!!  You also get one Sale-A-Bration item FREE!!! What’s Better Than That!! Well, I will tell you.  As a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber (through me) you are invited to join me on the last Tuesday of each month to put the kit together.  January’s Gathering will be on the 26th.  Check out Paper Pumpkin Gathering to learn more!!!!    I do request that you let me know by the 22nd of each month to attend the Gathering.

My Paper Pumpkin

One of my favorite things Stampin’ Up! offers is My Paper Pumpkin.  I love that everything you need to create a project comes in one box.  I also adore that the projects are simple and easy to make.  They are always “wow” project in my option because the are clean and simple projects that bring a lot of bang!  October’s Paper Pumpkin was extra fun to create.

I also love getting a surprise project in the mail each month.  Stampin’ Up! provides a video each month to show you exactly what to do!  I also, love that they provide you with plenty of “spare parts’ that can be saved for future projects.  Not to mention it is a great way to collect a great little set of stamps and ink spots!

It was a beautiful day here in Alabama! So, when I had some down time at work I went outside and started putting together my kit! I already know who two of the cards are going to!  I also have many ideas to use these stamps in the future!  Exciting.  Potability is defiantly a positive for Paper Pumpkin! IMAG2331
