January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit

20170122_224428120170122_1908021

January Paper Pumpkin Kit, Adoring Arrows, were these cute treat bags.  There was enough supplies to make 24 bags.  The kit included everything you need to complete them excluding scissors.  A full set of stamps, ink spot, adhesives, metallic thread and all the paper material to make the bags and arrows.  The kit is such a great deal and comes with instructions and there is a You Tube video on how to make the project.  Sometimes it’s cards, banners, wreath, treat bags/holders and who knows what it will be from month to month.

You can buy the kit two ways.  One way is a prepaid subscription where you can buy 1 month, 3 months, 6 month or 12 months.  Right now StampinUp is running a special on the 3 month subscription for $55 in lieu of $59.  To sign up for a subscription just go to this link http://darleneseitz.stampinup.net and click on Shop then Paper Pumpkin.  Also when you purchase at least a 3 month subscription, you’ll receive a free item of your choice from our Sale-A-Bration catalog.  This deal will last until March 31, 2017.   In fact, you can receive a free item for every $50. that you spend.  Please see my blog regarding SAB, here is the link in case you want to check it out: https://stampincardsncrafts.com/2016/12/29/2017-occasions-catalog-sale-a-bration/  .You can also purchase the kit on a month to month basis, for this you can sign up at http://www.paperpumpkin.com.  Be sure to pick me as your demonstrator (Darlene Seitz number 2096764).

If you do not want to make the entire craft, you can usually make some cards with the materials (or if you have left over material).  These are the cards I made from some of the material.  I did add some of my own materials.  But, if you are an active Paper Pumpkin subscriber with me, I will send you some additional materials, pictures and instructions to make some cards that I have created.

DECEMBER PAPER PUMPKIN-SCRAPBOOK PAGE & CARDS

20170106_114430

December Paper Pumpkin kit (a monthly craft kit by StampinUp) is called Another Great Year and contained contents to create a mini scrapbook around your memories from 2016.  I decided to use some of the supplies to do a regular scrapbook page.  There are enough supplies left that I can still create a mini scrapbook or make some cards from the supplies.  The supplies included a rotary stamp, a stampin write marker, washi tape, paper supplies to create the pages–double-sided patterned paper, window sheets,– silver foil stickers, regular stickers and rings to connect the pages.  Here is a picture of what the kit includes and how the final product will look.

I also had a chance to do a couple cards with some of the supplies, adding some additional items to complete the cards for Valentine’s Day.

         20170114_13323420170114_135958              They are very similar.  I added real red cardstock and some silver washi tape.  On the one on the left, I stamped the lips and wording in real red and staz-on white ink.  The stamps come from the new set Sealed With Love from the Occasions catalog just released.  The one on the right I also added the real red paper, washi tape and only the small wording, but I also shaded the white heart and lines around with some Craft real red ink and then wiped some off.

Paper Pumpkin is also running a special right now.  If you buy a 3 month prepaid subscription , the price is reduced from $59. to $55. AND you will receive a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  The items you can choose from include stamp sets, ribbon, designer Paper, card kit, and a tin to hold your cards.  So if you have never tried Paper Pumpkin, now is a great time to try it.  If you are already a customer, you can get a great deal on upcoming kits.  This special deal lasts until March 31, 2017 but if you sign up today, you can start receiving your kits in February.  To order this deal or any other items, please see my on line store at http://darleneseitz.stampinup.net or contact me directly by either leaving a comment on this post or send me an email at darstz@hotmail.com.
