Earn Sale-A-Bration rewards BIG TIME with Paper Pumpkin!

Paper Pumpkin

Hello Stampers! Do you have a list of Stampin' Up! products you want to buy so you can get all those FREE Sale-A-Bration products? I do! (YES! Even as a Demonstrator!) 🙂

You might not have thought of it but purchasing a 3, 6, OR 12 month prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription is one of the easiest ways to get those Sale-A-Bration rewards! AND, there's an added incentive in the March kit.

Earn Sale-A-Bration rewards BIG TIME with Paper Pumpkin!

That's right. Instead of one stamp set in the kit, you'll get two!

I purchase my own 12 month prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription every year during Sale-A-Bration. Here's why. When I purchase the 12 month prepaid subscription I only pay for 11 months AND I get three free Sale-A-Bration gifts. (the cost of the 12 months is $209). Now, that's a great deal in itself. BUT, I add some extra supplies like cardstock, envelopes and SNAIL to bring my pre-tax total up to $250. By doing that I get two extra SAB rewards PLUS $50 in free merchandise. (regular free amount on $250 is $25 but with the SAB bonus, I get $50!) Let's recap:

spend $250 plus tax and shipping and GET:

  • 12 months of Paper Pumpkin creativity kits delivered right to you (but you've only paid for 11…woo hoo-one free month!)
  • FIVE free Sale-A-Bration gifts: 5 Level 1 OR a combination of Level 1 and Level 2 (see all your options HERE)
  • $50 in FREE merchandise from our Annual or Occasions catalogs

Paper crafting/ Paper Pumpkin

I'm here today to share a quick video that our Stampin' Up! concept artists made to introduce the February Paper Pumpkin creativity kit. If you watch the video, you’ll get a taste of what you can expect to see in the February kit.

We don't always get to see a kit in advance but when we do, I want to share! I've been a subscriber to this monthly crafting kit ever since Stampin' Up! first introduced these orange boxes of fun…five years ago. This is a one stop box of crafting fun! At only $19.95 (including shipping), the all-inclusive kit has everything you need to have a short, creative escape in your own home. You can even work in your PJ's! 🙂

Every Paper Pumpkin kit is uniquely created by Stampin’ Up! designers and concept artists. The video gives an inside look at the creative process and what goes into developing a Paper Pumpkin kit.

I encourage you to subscribe, remain subscribed, or reactivate their subscription by February 10 in order to receive the February kit. I know you won't be disappointed!

Even better, right now during our Sale-A-Bration promotion, you can purchase a three month pre-paid subscription AND get a free Sale-A-Bration item of your choice! Click HERE to see all the scoop. Once you're a subscriber, you get an extra perk, the ability to purchase past kits! Sometimes the kits have all the materials to make 8-10 cards and sometimes there is a single project, like the monthly calendar in December's kit.

Sunday Crafting With August Paper Pumpkin

Announcements/ Paper crafting/ Paper Pumpkin

Hey Stampers! Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share my Sunday Crafting with August Paper Pumpkin projects. Sunday morning was spent at church with my KidZone First and Second Graders. It was promotion Sunday so it was quite wild and a little tearful for some of the younger ones. We got through it and parents picked up everyone so I didn't have to bring home an extra child! After lunch with hubby I settled into my craft room to start my Sunday crafting with my August Paper Pumpkin. My kit arrived last week but I've been so busy I hadn't even had a chance to open it.

I was happily surprised when I looked inside. Two of my favorite Stampin' Up! colors, Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral were featured in the projects.

I had quite a few extra stickers and stamped ovals left over so I grabbed one extra sheet of Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral cardstock and made a few extra cards. I usually do end up with extra supplies each month which is only one of the great features of the Paper Pumpkin kits.

I just love my Paper Pumpkin subscription! Each month, a bright orange box arrives in my mailbox complete with everything I need to make cards, home decor, or holiday-themed projects.

You might wonder why I would get a “kit” when, as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I already have quite a bit of supplies in my craft room. Let me let you in on a little secret. Truth is, sometimes, I just like to pull out a project, follow directions, and end up with cute cards without all the cutting and measuring! I enjoy this on Sundays especially when I'm just kicking back and relaxing.

If you've never had an orange box filled with a fun crafting project arrive in your mailbox, now is the perfect time to give it a try and save money!

If you subscribe before September 10, Stampin' Up! will deliver September’s (gorgeous!) Paper Pumpkin kit straight to your door, complete with everything you need to make adorable projects—all for 50% off!  That's only $9.98, including shipping! What a great deal!

To get this amazing box of goodies, sign up using promo code HALFOFF0917 at paperpumpkin.com by September 10. That's it, easy peasy! Then just watch for an email letting you know that Paper Pumpkin is on its way! This half price offer is good for your first month and after that, the price return to $19.95 (still an amazing deal!)

The orange box is always filled with cute projects like these:

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll give Paper Pumpkin a try; I know you won't be disappointed!

What’s a Pumpkin Patch? Or is it Paper Pumpkin?

Paper crafting/ Paper Pumpkin/ Product Information/ Videos

Hey stampers!  I have to share a Paper Pumpkin funny story with you. When you join Stampin' Up! you get a free Paper Pumpkin kit (keep reading if you're not sure what this is!) in your box of goodies. One of my new team members had no idea she was getting this in her starter kit. We work together so she sent me a message and asked me what does she do with her “pumpkin patch”? It took me a minute, but then I started cracking up. I messaged her back and said, you mean Paper Pumpkin, right? She laughed and said yes. I showed her what was inside the box and she and her mom had a great time stamping and assembling everything.

I learned a good lesson from this: I need to do a better job of explaining the kit “extras” to my new team members; the Paper Pumpkin kit makes the value of the starter kit even better!

As I was thinking about my new team member, it occurred to me that Paper Pumpkin would be a great topic for a post this week…and not just because of the free kit when you join Stampin' Up! So here we go.

What IS Paper Pumpkin? It is a fully designed project kit that arrives at your door each month with stamps, ink, and paper—everything cut and ready to go, so you can skip to the fun. You'll get fun projects like cards, gift packaging, home décor, and more for just $19.95 a month (shipping included). The packaging itself is fun, too. Monthly kits arrive in an orange box and sometimes a special box is designed for a particular kit. Each month is a surprise…and who doesn't like surprises! Here's a video of the January project:

Right now, during Sale-A-Bration, you can get a three month prepaid subscription AND a free Sale-A-Bration item…it's a great time to sign up! I have my own Paper Pumpkin subscription and I get just as excited as my customers when that orange box arrives!

I have several customers who sign up for a 12 month prepaid subscription during Sale-A-Bration because they get FOUR free Sale-A-Bration freebies, a discount on the subscription, and they are guaranteed an entire year of Paper Pumpkin fun…with no interruption!

Whether you are new to stamping, or have been crafting for years Paper Pumpkin is sure to please. You can also gift a subscription to the crafters in your life…these make a wonderful birthday gift!

I invite you to check out all the details here, and please do email me if you have any questions at all!
