October Paper Pumpkin

My favorite day of the month is the day my Paper Pumpkin arrives from Stampin’ Up.  I am in desperate need for birthday cards so I changed up a bit.  The Happy Birthday sentiment in the Cake Soiree stamp set is one of my all time favorites and you can see why. I only used 3 items that were not in this month’s kit, Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend marker and Cake Soiree stamp set for the sentiment and Blackberry Bliss ink pad.

I love that the Paper Pumpkin kit includes envelopes that match the cards, it looks so classy and put together, I’ve had a few friends say they thought I had purchased the card and I think a matching envelope has a lot to do with that.

Paper Pumpkin kits have been arriving at my home in the middle of the month for over a year now and I have loved every one of them and the price is so reasonable at only $20.00/month (including shipping). Kits are complete with EVERYTHING you need to complete the projects on the instructions including adhesives, you don’t even need scissors. It’s easy to add some of your own supplies to change things up a little like I have. You can cancel anytime, and next month they promise an fun Halloween project, I can hardly wait!
