What do pumpkins have to do with paper?


The answer to this, I do not know.

But, what I do know is that you only have a FEW DAYS LEFT to take advantage of the Paper Pumpkin Promotion (say that 10 times fast).  This is the monthly subscription service that brings a glorious little orange little box to your door with everything you need for a 30 minute craft ‘timeout’.  Cause we are learning that time outs are sometimes necessary for our own sanity.

Paper Pumpkin is $19.95/month (plus tax) but if you sign up right now, (by August 31) you will get your first TWO months for $10.   Go to mypaperpumpkin.com and use the code PUMPKINDEAL.  This is a wonderful deal.  And, to sweeten the pot, I have a few things to show you.  First off, if you sign up and designate me as your demonstrator, you will get a little gifty from me…


It’s a stamp case to store your paper pumpkin stamps and a tube of Tombow the Wonder Adhesive (as Anne calls it, and I agree).  Adhesive is the only thing that doesn’t come in the kit.

Here’s a close up:


And, here is something I made from the first kit you will receive….  (Now, the card isn’t the one in the kit, but I’m using the same stamps….just to show you the versatility of it.  Cause after you make what is in the kit, you can make OTHER things too…)

And full disclosure.  I totally copied this card.  Out of the most recent Stampin’ Success.  Stampin’ Success is one of the perks of being a demo.  You get a beautiful magazine every couple of months that have LOADS of ideas.  Ideas you can use.  Right away.  Like I just did.  Cause I can.


Your starter Pumpkin kit comes with that “hey there” stamp and the splotches stamp.  The stamps that look like washi tape come from a stamp set called “Tape It”.  (BTW, I LOVE that set too).  I used calypso coral, summer star fruit and pistachio pudding ink, and crumb cake ink (stamp off to make it appear lighter).  The cardstock is very vanilla and crumb cake.

Here’s another look:


I’m experimenting with a black background for photos.  Let me know what you think.  Do you like it better than the white background??

Here is a close up of the embellishment:


Some bling and linen thread and a couple of punches make the card just stand out.  This card comes together SO fast.  And it is another use for your starter kit!!

And, you can give paper pumpkin as a gift too.  It’s fun to get a coupe of kits and take them and put them together with a friend.  Even friends who don’t craft or are used to stamping.  It’s so easy to do and put together that they will have a good time working on it with you.

So, remember…. by August 31.  Mypaperpumpkin.com  code:  PUMPKINDEAL.

And I guess we can say pumpkins and paper mean an EXCELLENT time out.  Do you follow my logic???
