Paper Pumpkin has ARRIVED

I signed up for Paper Pumpkin as soon as I could.  The first month has arrived at my doorstep.  I am so excited.  I can't wait to get started on the cards.  I wanted to show you what came in the mail.  :-)

For the first month, some of the boxes were brown.  Future boxes will the pretty red box.
Does the design on the box look familiar?
When I opened the box everything was nicely wrapped and a little welcome note was included.  (Sorry, the chocolate box was not included)  :-)
Here is what it looked like when I moved the welcome note.  HHhmmm, what can I do with the Paper Pumpkin label.......

In the box were two new stamps, a basic gray Stampin' spot, a FREE clear block (D) (free with your first month), and new cards to create, complete with instructions.

The kit also comes with all of the embellishments.  These kits are great for the beginners and the the stampers that have been stamping for awhile.

  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut 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.
Do you want your own kit yet??

It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program by visiting and click Get it. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!

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!

Introducting Photopolymer Stamps

We've searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we've found it. We're excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options. 
What makes them so great?
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.
They are clearly a great choice.

Item Description Price
132956 Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set
Recommend clear blocks A, B, G, F, and I. Purchase separately.
Includes 57 pieces. (Don't faint! This is a good overwhelming feeling.)
The Fine Print
  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
  • Available on all order types beginning March 1, 2013. 
  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.  
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.
 Q: How long will each stamp set that's released be available for purchase?
A: Since this product line is being offered on a trial basis and is not currently included in our catalog, we won't have a standard amount of time that each set is offered. We'll let you know when each set is no longer available as well as when new ones become available.

I'm Back

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to say that I am finally back.  I have been concentrating on some things at home and now am able to back to blogging.  It has been a crazy couple of months and I am looking forward to spring.  I can't wait to feel the warm sun on my face and everything turn green.  There is nothing like Spring to warm the soul.

So with my first post back, I wanted to give you a sneak peak of Stampin' Up's NEW product line:  This and That.
This and That debuts in the 2013-2014 annual catalog, but Stampin' Up is giving everybody the chance to get it starting March 23. Watch for more information on March 23!

I will also be participating in a spring blog hop soon, so watch for more information this week!

Thanks for sticking with me during these past couple of months.
