Hello September! I have to say I’m loving that summer isn’t making a fast exit. Summer is by far my favorite season and it always seems to go so fast! Don’t get me wrong, I actually do like fall, too. It’s just that fall leads to…. well, you know what and after last winter? I’m not ready!
Anyway, you know what fall also brings? Pumpkins! And you know what kind of pumpkin is my favorite? Paper Pumpkin! What’s that? You don’t know what Paper Pumpkin is? Well, it’s only the best monthly paper crafting subscription there is! These all inclusive kits include a full stamp set, one or two ink “spots” (just adorable little ink pads), a pre-designed, pre-cut project that you can usually make a bunch of and all the accessories and embellishments you need to complete the projects. Most of the time it even includes the adhesive you need (glue dots, stampin’ dimensionals) — you may just need to supply a tape runner of some sort.
And for ONE MORE DAY (through September 10), you can get your first two months of Paper Pumpkin at half off (even at full price it’s a great deal… it’s usually just $19.95/mo. and that includes shipping — but join before the end of the day on the 10th and you get TWO for that price! You’ll be charged just $9.95 a month!). These are such a great value, too. Let me show you what I did with the August kit.
So here are the pre-designed projects that the kit made… there was enough to make 3 of each card and 3 boxes.
There adorable all on their own, right? Of course! It’s the perfect solution for new crafters or maybe those of you who have done anything crafty in a while. But what about those of you that have ink on your fingers every day? And LOVE to paper craft. Are these too simple for you? Absolutely not! Check out what I did with the contents of my kit plus a few extra little products I had on hand:
This one (above) I’m going to use on a little cello bag of chocolate treats! Won’t that be fun?
A little note card to brighten someone’s day….
I broke out my gold embossing powder for the card above… just rubbed my versamark along the edge of the basic black cardstock, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set. Instant glam!
Have you seen the gold and silver super fine thread in the new 2015-2016 idea book and catalog? Oh my goodness… I am so in love with this stuff. I. Can’t. Stop. Using. It.
