It's Paper Pumpkin BOGO time…woo hoo!!

For the FIRST time ever, first-time subscribers can buy their FIRST month and get their second month completely FREE! Sign up at and use BOGO for the promo code.  You'll be able to make cute projects like these… AND save money!

Here are just a few of the features and benefits:

  • Every kit comes with an exclusive stamp set to use over and over!
  • You get 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 many to make awesome projects like cards, home décor, gift packaging, and more. For example, our card kits (6+ per year) always include 8 cards—at least!
  • It’s flexible! You can suspend (for a month) or cancel at anytime.

More Paper Pumpkin

Paper Pumpkin/ Tuesday Tips/ Videos

You all seem to be enjoying the alternate ideas so….here's more April Paper Pumpkin!

It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas, right? It’s easy to turn the Lovely Little Wreath into a holiday décor item. Simply change out the yellow flowers for holly berries and use a holiday stamp on the chalkboard sign.


Next, with Mother’s Day right around the corner, add some fun foliage to create a custom gift box for Mom. Use the chalkboard tags and Very Vanilla Craft Stampin’ Spot from the kit to finish the box.  Create a splash of color with Watermelon Wonder ribbon for an elegant bow.


Create some cacti desert blooms with the extra flowers and leaves from your kit.


Doesn't this little dinosaur look so cute?!


Last, but not least, create a small version of the wreath for a simple focal point on a card.


It's always so much fun to get my orange box each month! Whether I decide to make the projects exactly as shown or create other things….it's never boring!! I invite you to become a subscriber and join the fun!

Oh…one more thing. there are always YouTube videos, like this one,  for Paper Pumpkin to get your mojo going!

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Ideas for March Kit

Mojo Monday/ Paper Pumpkin/ Product Information

Howdy stampers! Today I wanted to share a couple of my Paper Pumpkin alternative ideas for the March kit.  I just loved the colors in this one!

PPPicsI always save the sentiment stamps that come in my kits so I can use them over and over again.  The “you're amazing” stamp came in a 2015 kit I think; you could use any sentiment depending on the occasion.

It's never to late to start your own monthly Paper Pumpkin subscription: Join Now OR purchase a 1,3,6, or 12 month prepaid subscription for yourself or a friend.

I'd love to see your Paper Pumpkin alternative ideas…you can email them to me!
