July's Paper Pumpkin Kit and Weekly Deals!
When I returned home from Stampin' Up!'s Annual Convention last week, I had a little red box awaiting me. It looked something like this:
And when I opened it up....
There was quite a treat in store:
I have been promoting My Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!'s subscription craft kits for a long time now, but I have never been so proud to display the contents as now! I'll be the first to admit that the old kits, though cute, were not the value that we have been taught to expect from Stampin' Up! I am excited to say, that has ALL CHANGED. The kits that are delivered to your door after the 15th of the month, every month, are an AMAZING value for the $24.95 that you pay!
This July 2014 kit is a prime example. I finally got time to get it out and put some of it together and I am blown away by what is included in this kit. You get everything you need, except for adhesive, to make 6 of these classy looking gift boxes with tags and 6 beautiful greeting cards plus lots of stickers and tags left over! And the quality of all the materials is top notch!
Take the ribbon for example. It is beautiful gleaming white satin ribbon of the finest quality, and you get lots of it! The stickers are all cardstock weight and stick well. You have many more of the cute silver foil stars than you need for the tags and the cards and I'll bet you can come up with some amazing uses for them!!
You get 12 of the punch out round tags, so you can use them for other birthday gifts, and they would make great tags for Christmas gifts as well as well as the white baker's twine with which to tie them on.
And look at the variety of photopolymer stamps that come in this one kit. You can make so many different greetings with both these and the WISH stickers that you can see on the card above:
Happy Birthday, Make a Wish, Make a Big Wish, Wish Big, Wish You Were Here, Wish on a Star, Happy For You, Thanks, Big Thanks, Thanks For You .... to name a few. You would have almost every sentiment you could need, plus those adorables little hearts and stars.
You get a small Stampin' Spot (a mini stamp pad) in Blackberry Bliss, my new favourite In Colour this year. Purple is very trending this year and, if you had subscribed before the 10th of this month, you would have that colour in your collection!
Leave me a message today, and tell me what you would use the gift boxes for from this month's Paper Pumpkin.
Each month is a surprise, but I am confident you will be pleased with them. I have seen sneak peeks of the next couple of months and they are equally awesome! And here's THE KICKER! New subscribers to Paper Pumpkin will get their first two kits at 50% off if they subscribe by September 10th! How awesome is that?
Well, by now, you'll be wondering how you can go about getting a subscription to My Paper Pumpkin! It's easy! Go to the My Paper Pumpkin Website , click on subscribe, and follow the prompts.
