I admit, I was amazed! I think that I could take it to the next step and say “they nailed it”!!!
What am I talkin’ about? A topic that seems to bring highs and lows with comments and feelings about this program, Paper Pumpkin.
I am sure that you have read from just about anyone’s blog that is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator that the Paper Pumpkin for October and November go together.This is the first time that Stampin’ Up! has done something like this having two kits back to back that coordinate with each other.
Yesterday I took time to put together the October kit.I have some pictures of the kit that I put together and I think will agree…It is simply adorable! I will share with you any “changes” that I did…but seriously, it was so well thought out…it really does not need to be “re-thought’ something that I think many of us do each month.
Make sure that you read the information that I will share with you from the home office after you view the photos of the kit that I put together. That is why the title of this post says set an alarm…It will make total sense to you below!
If you haven’t seen the video….please enjoy, its only about 2 minutes long. I think after you view the video and see my pictures… You will set your alarm to make sure you secure this kit!
Here are the pictures of the kit that I put together yesterday. Enjoy…It was not only super fun to put together it was rewarding and something I was very proud of.
You can see that I made one as a Christmas Ball Ornament and one that had the sentiment lower. Do you have a preference? I couldn’t decide so I made them both….they both are BLUE RIBBON WINNERS!!
I did change up the sentiment… it is from Lawn Fawn, just a personal preference as I wanted a super basic font and I have fallen in love with their Bakers Twine ….(it has a bit more texture…making a clean and crisp look…they call it a cord))
Now to the next set of (5) cards…again, ADORABLE! I made these straight from the kit instructions.The sentiment here is the sentiment that is included in the kit. I think it looks beautiful through this Christmas ball.
There’s something about that pre-printed pine that just hangs so beautifully over the front of this card. Hopefully you can see in my photos that the white card piece is actually embossed as well. Stampin’ Up! really pulled out all stops for this kit… Making it super classic and super fun!
Well… What are your thoughts? For those of you that are used to paper pumpkin or at least read about paper pumpkin you will know that you need to be a paper pumpkin subscriber in order to get a kit or refills. This kit stamping up will not be offering any refills.
Below (in RED) you will see an excerpt from the home office that was communicated to demonstrators.If you would like to purchase this kit it will fly out the door and I can almost guarantee it will be sold out very quickly.
We’re thrilled with the great response we’ve had so far to our Season of Style October kit! In fact, you’ve loved it so much that we’ve decided to only offer FULL kits beginning Monday, October 23, while supplies last.
We’re doing everything possible to accommodate the demand and allow as many people as possible to get the Pining for Plaid kit, so we will not be offering refills for this kit. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and hope you are enjoying your super-sparkly Paper Pumpkin shaker cards!
The warehouse will build them on Monday, but to avoid availability issues, we will not make the kit available for purchase before 2:00 PM (MT) on Monday, October 23—ensuring all available kits are built and ready for purchase.
On Monday morning, when we have a better idea of the exact time the kits will be available, we’ll post another update.
I will pop back and update this post if I find out any more info to pass along to you. Remember, there will be no refills for this kit.It will only be sold as a full kit but again the price point is amazing.
After I put the kit together I still had leftover sequins (It comes with (3) colors….the white, pool party and the gold stars – I added some Red sequins in the mix for an extra pop of colo)0… as well as left -over Circle Shaker elements. The stamp set that is included in this kit is fabulous. You could easily make many other clean and simple Christmas cards with the sentiments that are included in the kit.
Here’s a great idea…This would be a wonderful gift to purchase for a friend.You and your friend could put together this kit and potentially make many more shaker cards as well.There’re simply nothing like having a kit with everything included that all you need to do is sit and create.
if I were you I would set a timer on your cell phone to remind you not to forget to order as I think we all know it will sell out very fast.
I say….Way to go Stampin’ Up! for creating such a unique and fun kit this month.I can’t wait to see what next month’s Kit is…. as it is to coordinate with this keeper!
***REMEMBER**** You need to be a current subscriber to Paper Pumpkin in order to take advantage at 2 p.m. to get this kit****
