Paper Pumpkin – Free Kit & Just $10 First 2 Months!

At Convention, Stampin’ Up! gave all attendees a free Paper Pumpkin kit to share with a new Paper Pumpkin customer along with a great promotion.  I have extras of my own too, so I will give away 2 free kits…one each to the first 2 new Paper Pumpkin customers that sign up with me as their demonstrator (I might even do three…we’ll see) before the end of August.

The promotion is that your first two months are only $10 a month*.  Link to the website is in the deets below or to the right (the pumpkin icon in the margin).
*plus tax, where applicable. Shipping included!

The Deets:

  • For new subscribers only.
  • Promotion applies only to the first two months of a new
    subscription. After receiving two month’s worth, the price for each
    month’s kit will go to the regular price: $19.95.
  • When you sign up on the website to take advantage of this promotion, click Subscribe, fill in the quantity of subscriptions, then click “Add Promo Code” right under quantity and enter the promo code
    PUMPKINDEAL in the “Promo Code” field, then complete shipping and payment info.
  • You must join by Saturday, August 31, 2013; 11:50 PM (MT).
  • I’ll mail your free kit to you around the 16th of September.

I just finished last month’s kit before I went to convention, and I have July’s to complete.  I’ll upload photos soon.  You never know what the projects will be…I haven’t been disappointed yet!  I like to bring them to work and do them at lunchtime…sometimes with a coworker friend of mine that gets them too.

Happy Stampin’

My Paper Pumpkin – Your Creativity Escape Awaits

Don’t have a lot of time for crafting?
Want to let someone else do the designing?
Don’t have a dedicated room to hold all those crafting tools?

My Paper Pumpkin is a monthly kit in a box all designed, cut, and ready for you to take a 30 minute creativity escape…just add tape!  It includes stamps & ink too!  The fun starts this month.

This is the Welcome Kit.  You get this kit no matter what month you sign up.  So, if you don’t want to miss any of the kits, you have to sign up by March 10th.  These samples SU! gave us are in brown boxes, but yours will be red like the website shows.

Here are the completed cards.  Envelopes and instructions are included too.

Here is the Try it kit.  Stampin’ Up! only gave us one journal, but you get two in this kit!

Both the Welcome Kit and the Try It Kit include a free Acrylic Block (size D) that you can use over and over each month with the exclusive stamps in your kit.  Also, sometimes your ink will be a marker instead of an ink spot.

I used half of the butterflies on the inside and outside of my journal.  Then, I made this card with the leftover ones.  I plan to post additional projects utilizing some of the supplies you get in these kits.

Here’s some better photos of the completed projects.

These were quick and easy to make.  I can’t wait to get more kits.  They will be a surprise every month:  cards, home decor, journals…  Also, you can cancel anytime.  A better idea is to skip a month or two instead of cancelling all together since when you re-sign up, you will start with the welcome kit again.

Please designate me, Barbara Raffman, as your demonstrator so I get credit for the subscription and send me an email too so I can add you to my Paper Pumpkin Club for additional project ideas with your supplies…Thanks!
