Have you heard me talk about Paper Pumpkin yet?
You all know I LOVE stamping and playing with all my paper, inks, and stamps…but as a demonstrator who is constantly needing to come up with projects for my classes and workshops, sometimes I just want someone ELSE to come up with the ideas! And precut the cardstock for me. And come up with coordinating colors and cute embellishments for me. And write the instructions and provide artwork to show me what the finished product should look like.
That is why I LOVE getting my Paper Pumpkin box in the mail each month. It is advertised as a monthly “creativity escape”, but I view it as an escape from having to think too hard. :) Everything you need for a project is in the box – cardstock, embellishments, instructions…even stamps and ink! Everything is precut or pre-scored, and ready for you to get started. You don’t have to pull out a bunch of materials before getting to work, and there is not a big mess of “craft-aftermath” at the end…just what you need for a half hour or so of relaxing craftiness!
You get a different project every month, and it is always a surprise! Some months it is a card kit, other months you may get a project like a mini-scrapbook, a decor item, we even got some very nice embellished gift bags a couple months ago. For an example of what a typical month’s box looks like, check out this video showing the March 2014 kit:
So what are the details? Paper Pumpkin is a subscription service, you get one box per month for $19.95 (with free shipping!) You can cancel or suspend your subscription if you ever feel like taking a break from it. The first month you will receive the starter kit (pictured below) which includes a clear block that you can hang onto and use with clear mount or photopolymer stamps you will be receiving in your kit each month.
If you sign up for a Paper Pumpkin subscription by the end of March, you will receive a FREE set of 2013-2015 In Color Markers ($14.95 value!)
And if I get just one more (seriously…ONE) person to sign up, I get a free stamp set from the upcoming annual catalog which is SO CUTE. Please won’t you help me get it? This would make a great monthly creativity escape for yourself, but it would also be a lovely gift for a daughter, mother, or close friend who enjoys crafts but may be short on time and/or space to indulge in them often.
Just click the image above to subscribe! If it does not automatically list me as your demonstrator, please select Stephanie Kokan, Madison AL 35757 from the list when prompted.
