What is it?
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly project kit delivered right to your door. Each kit contains everything you need to create that month’s project – a stamp set, an ink spot(s), pre-cut and scored paper, embellishments, and special adhesives (you may need a pair of scissors or other adhesives for some kits). All you need to do is “carve” out some time (usually about a half hour) and get crafting!
Here’s what you can expect when you sign up:
- Every kit comes with an exclusive stamp set to use over and over!
- There is at least one Classic Stampin’ Spot with every kit. The colors don’t repeat in a 12-month period, so it’s easy to build a collection of colorful ink.
- Every new subscriber receives a clear block (size D) with their first kit to help them get started and to use throughout their subscription.
- It’s an incredible value! In addition to a stamp set an ink spot(s), the kits are packed with supplies to make awesome projects like cards, home décor, gift packaging, and more. For example, the card kits (6+ per year) always include 8 cards—at least!
- It’s flexible! You can suspend (for a month) or cancel at anytime.
- Since all the prep work is done, the projects take a shorter time to complete, making it the perfect on-the-go craft. Headed out of town? Grab a kit to create during some downtime. It’s all contained in one little box, so it’s easy to take anywhere!
- It’s a surprise in your mailbox every month. Because who doesn’t love happy mail?
- Every month, Stampin’ Up! shares a video to quickly demonstrate how to assemble each kit. Just go to PumpkinHowTo.com to see the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel.
- You can create the project as intended, or if you’re feeling the urge to get a little creative, head on over to the Paper Pumpkin Pinterest page, my own Paper Pumpkin Pinterest board, and join the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club group on Facebook.
- Every subscriber has exclusive access to the selection of past kits. So, when a kit runs out, you can buy more—either as a full kit or a refill (without stamp set and ink). Click here to see the current selection of past kits, available while supplies last.
- Hosts can earn Stampin’ Rewards on prepaid subscriptions.
