Try Paper Pumpkin kits delivered to your house each month!


First, I cannot believe it has been 2 weeks since I posted....had some problems with sore gums and achy teeth and just got it fixed I think....a bite adjustment!  Doesn't help that I grind and clench at night even with a nightguard so hopefully, I can get rid of the headaches, and sleep and eat better!

Now it's only a couple more weeks until the new Stampin' Up catalog comes out, which means some products will retire.  So you will want to check the retiring list in my online store to see if there is something you want to get before it is gone.

If you want the convenience of having a fun card making kit come right to your house every month, all ready to put together, trying Paper Pumpkin at a discount is perfect!  Stampin' Up!  is offering 50% for the first two months subscription when you use the code SAVE50 to sign up (you can't have had a subscription before).  Go to My Paper Pumpkin to sign up today!
Here is April's kit and each month is different - it gives you a chance to gradually keep adding to your supplies too.  For new subscribers only, not valid on prepaid subscriptions. Discount applied to one kit per month for the first two months of a new subscription. Offer ends June 10, 2015 at 11:50 pm (MT).) Sign up at PaperPumpkin.com by June 10 with promo code SAVE50!


I have to admit I have every single kit since they started Paper Pumpkin!!  When it arrives, I immediately have to stop what I am doing and see what's inside - it's like getting a surprise present every month!  It's almost too pretty to tear the blue paper, so I carefully cut it lol.

Give Paper Pumpkin a try for a couple months, OK?  You won't regret it....
