Stampin’ Up! January Paper Pumpkin Kit – Sending Hearts

Good Morning and welcome to another Simple Stamping Saturday! One of the easiest ways to start stamping is with a Paper Pumpkin kit! I just got my January 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit called Sending Hearts, so let me show you how. The January kit was perfectly timed for making Valentines.

The Paper Pumpkin kits are perfect to start stamping because they contain everything you need, including your storage box! When you sign up for your first kit, you will receive a stamping block and each kit you receive will contain all the supplies you need to complete the project – stamps, ink, paper, embellishments and instructions. Here are the contents of the Sending Hearts kit:

This is a great kit for Valentine’s Day and it’s also great for sending little notes of love and hugs. This kit contains pink heart embellishments, beautiful black ribbon, gorgeous red envelopes and a Poppy Parade Stampin Spot. Here’s a close up of the stamp set.

Here’s the heart valentine I made.

And here’s the mail box valentine I made – I added one of he cute little snails from the Little Treat Boxes Add on to the bottom. Isn’t it cute?

Here are the cute Add On Little Treat Boxes. They are perfect for holding little chocolates! I punched a Pool Party heart to hold the little snail and added a bow from made from the wonderful black ribbon in the Paper Pumpkin kit!

Here’s the Paper Pumpkin unboxing video from the YouTube channel showing how to assemble the sweet cards:

Paper Pumpkin publishes a different kit each month that is appropriate to upcoming seasons or holidays. They are usually card kits, but sometimes the kits will be little containers. On the first day of the ordering period, they publish a description so you will know the theme and whether it will be a card kit or other type of project. They will give clues about the design, but the kit will be a surprise when it arrives. You need to place your order or subscribe by the 10th of each month and the kit will be delivered to your mailbox before the end of the month. And then, the crafting fun begins!!

Stampin’ Up! December Paper Pumpkin Kit – Beary Comforting

Hello! Last week I received my December Paper Pumpkin kit and I finally put together some of the cute cards. The little bears are really adorable and the papers are gorgeous!

There’s a brown bear, red panda and a pair of koalas and they are so cute! They have cut outs so that they look like they’re holding the little gifts. Take a look – I made the koalas with the cupcake.

And the red panda with the heart – this would make a sweet valentine.

And I made the brown bear with a sweet bouquet of flowers. There’s also a present that I did not use.

And there’s a refill kit in the Online Store with the same contents of the kit minus the Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Spot and the stamp set. Here are the contents.

Stampin’ Up! November Paper Pumpkin Kit – Jolly Gingerbread

Hello! Last week I received my November Paper Pumpkin kit and I put together some of the cute gingerbread house gift card holders. They are really adorable!

There are three slightly different style houses and I made one of each in the three piece style where you have the card sleeve, insert and envelope. I stamped the swirls in Blushing Bride and the sentiments in Mint Macaron from my stash.

The envelopes are real cute with printed designs on the inside and outside. Here, you can see the lining on the envelope

And here’s the last one showing how the insert fits in the card holder and the envelope. You can decorate the candy dots anyway you want and it’s a lot of fun – I think my grandkids would love sticking the candy dots on everything!

Here are the contents of the November kit. There is also a Blushing Bride Stampin’ Spot with the kit.

And here’s a close up of the stamp set that is included:

Here’s the Paper Pumpkin unboxing video from the YouTube channel showing how to assemble the pretty gift card holders:

And I was inspired by Tami White to make a box for my Christmas tree. It’s open at the top and made with one of the gift card holders. First you cut the flap off the gingerbread house and cut the gingerbread house into the two pieces. I decorated the overlays as usual, this time putting my sentiment on the back and adhered them to the gingerbread houses.

Cut a panel of Bumblebee card stock to 2″ x 6-3/4″. Score the long side at 1/4″, 1-1/4″, 3-1/2″ and 4-1/2″. Score the short side at 1″. Fold on the score lines and trim the little flap off. Cut the bottom lines and adhere Tear & Tape as shown on the picture below. Adhere the side first and then fold the bottom short flaps up before adhering the bottom.

Adhere the gingerbread houses to the side and punch holes in the side and tie a handle with one of the pretty gold trims. I used the Paper Pumpkin Mint Macaron tissue to line the box and now it’s ready to hang on my Christmas Tree! And now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to get going with the Christmas decorating!!

The December Paper Pumpkin Kit is Beary Comforting!

Stampin’ Up! October Paper Pumpkin Kit – Joy To The World

Hello! Last week I received my October Paper Pumpkin kit and I put together the beautiful cards. The cards have pretty floral and wreath images in Cherry Cobbler and Just Jade with touches of gold. And there are gold foil words in French and German for an international flair!

I only used the English Peace and Joy gold foil words on my wreath, but they are beautiful! The gold foil on the card base really makes the Crumb Cake elegant, and the embossed layer is a nice touch with the Cherry Cobbler linen thread.

On this set of cards, I made a boo-boo and stamped the inside sentiment portrait instead of landscape. So I had to change up the design, but that’s ok because you can see more of the pretty flowers!

The bow in this picture is not behaving, but the gold letters are so pretty and the pretty Cherry Cobbler printed lining in the envelopes is also printed in English, French and German!

Here are the contents of the October kit. The pretty stamp set has a wonderful wreath and floral image and comes with great sentiments. See the pretty foil words in the three languages. And don’t forget the Just Jade Stampin’ Spot!

And here’s a close up of the stamp set that is included:

Here’s the Paper Pumpkin unboxing video from the YouTube channel showing how to assemble the pretty cards:

And here some alternative projects made by the Paper Pumpkin team.

If you are interested in how to make these projects and seeing other alternative ideas, visit the Paper Pumpkin Facebook Blog. They describe how to make each of these projects and they have additional ideas from demonstrators on projects using the October Paper Pumpkin kit.

Stampin’ Up! September Paper Pumpkin Kit – Hello Pumpkin

Hello! Last week I received my September Paper Pumpkin kit and I put together some of the cracker boxes. I am planning to fill the cracker boxes with Halloween treats to give out, so I pretty stuck with the Halloween themes and used the black cat and witches’ hat. I didn’t decorate them with as many flowers and leaves as in the video, but they’re still cute!

The pumpkin die cuts were too cute, so I paired them with the Whisper White note cards and envelopes to make some cute Thanksgiving cards. I did use more of the flowers and leaves for these cards and added a few items from my stash.

Don’t you just love those little filigree panels and the swirls? There are lots of the leaves and flower die cuts left, so I’ll incorporate them into more fall and Thanksgiving cards for friends. Here are the contents of the kit. Note that it includes a Cajun Craze Stampin’ Spot!

And here’s the stamp set that is included – such a pretty witches’ hat!!

Here’s the Paper Pumpkin unboxing video from the YouTube channel showing how to assemble the cracker treat boxes:

And here are some more alternative projects made by the Paper Pumpkin team.
