Have you ever received a unexpected surprise that made you say…"That was great"! Well, this is what I felt when I walked in the door Sunday night…my Paper Pumpkin was here!
Click here to see the super cute and short video showcasing this months kit and then below you will see my kit put together with some tips!
Before I go on…..PLEASE remember to use this hostess code (K3VX2TKD) if you are placing an order. This hostess code is good through May 31st and please do not worry if you ordered and forgot the code – "I've got your back" – I called Stampin' Up! and made sure that it was placed on….this way – one lucky person will win the hostess credit!!! Here it is – K3VX2TKD
I usually do not blog about paper Pumpkin….and I do not know why….but after my long drive home I saw the famous box on the kitchen counter and I could not resist….out came the scissors and I just needed to dive into it and I am glad that I did!
I am the very 1st to realize that many of you are skeptical of signing up for Paper Pumpkin…and "I get it" but it is an opportunity for you to get a taste of "me time" with a fun box delivered to your door! If you click here, you will see a great group of ideas that others have created with their Paper Pumpkin Kits on Pinterest!
Right now you can sign up for Paper Pumpkin and save 50% off for you first 2 months…
There are a couple of things/perks that I love about the Paper Pumpkin program…
- It is a fabulous price point to see if it is something that you will enjoy, it is regularly $19.95 per month but for NEW Paper Pumpkin customers, their first 2 months will be 50% off
- You can stop at anytime if you find that it is not for you.
- If you are a Paper Pumpkin customer, you will be able to have the opportunity to purchase past kits and/or refills if they are available!
For example, I ADORE the December 2014 kit….All Shook Up Kit – this kit was all about shaker cards and it is one fabulous set….if you are a Paper Pumpkin Customer, you will be able to go back and order past kits (if they are available – and this is right now) and if you already have the kit, you can order refills (like this one for just $7.95) – WOWZERS…that is 9 cards that you can make!
- If you want to suspend your subscription a month….no worries – just contact Paper Pumpkin and request to be skipped a month, sooo easy!
- These make great gifts as you can purchase a subscription for someone…what a great gift!
- Because everything is on one cute little box, these make a great "me time" for you and some friends = a great way to have fun and be able to create!
Let's get to May's Kit…you can see that this is a super cute one and if it is offered as a refill, YOU BET that I will take advantage of ordering more. I think that this is just one adorable kit !
I thought that I would show you all of the stamps that came in the kit…are these great or what! So darn practical and I am over the moon with the balloon stamp as it is really (2) stamps, the balloon and then the string. I know that it is so simple to draw a string…but you bet that I will use this for "string" for other cards (like yesterdays card it would be adorable to have the Bear hold some balloons and mask off the flower etc…
Below is a card made up right from the directions in the kit and then the next one you can see that I stepped it up a very little bit by adding Daffodil Delight Paper behind the band and sentiment. A super fast touch!
Here you can see them side by side and you simply could not go wrong with either one! This is a super cute card and don;t you love the sentiment with the fun squiggles…
You will get (6) of these cards in the kit.
Let's talk FUN….let's talk about these super cute gift bags! You will get (4) of these. I did the same thing as above. The first picture is made right from the directions and then the next one is stepped up ever so slightly.
Side by Side you can see that they are both super fun. (the paper is super heavy – making it a very sturdy bag). I stamped on the balloons with the stamp that is in my "go to" stamp Set, Petal Potpourri.
The kit comes with yellow tissue and the (2) balloons are cut out of the bag…I just took a piece of daffodil delight paper and stamped it and then adhered it to the bag from the inside.
I think I am going to use one of the balloons as a stencil to make more balloons in other paper. I love the size and shape of the Coral Balloon.
Well…there you go in a nutshell….scoop on the Paper Pumpkin program. You can see that you have nothing to loose and with it being 50% off for your first (2) months….I say – GO FOR IT and try it, if you do not care for it…no biggie whatsoever.
Remember, once you sign up, you can go back and order past kits/refills if they are available. (This is only a perk for Paper Pumpkin customers so you can see it is worth it)
