  • Try it for one month!
 I get Paper Pumpkin myself and it is always exciting to see what Stampin' Up products I get with each monthly kit....


 What comes in my Paper Pumpkin? It's a surprise each month—anticipation for the surprise is seriously half the fun!  No worries, though, you'll have everything you need to complete the project: paper, stamps, ink, accessories, instructions, exclusive products you can only get through Paper Pumpkin, and more! You will only need adhesive and everything is color-coordinated, measured, and cut for you! This makes it possible for you to complete each Paper Pumpkin in 30 minutes or less, unless you have someone else help you and then you both have FUN!



 What is the Welcome Kit?  The Welcome Kit is the very first Paper Pumpkin you will receive in your first month of membership. This initial kit is the same for everyone, regardless of which month you subscribe. If you are a new member, we'll send the Welcome kit to you for your first month. Bonus!! the Welcome Kit includes a free gift—a clear acrylic block! You will need your clear block each month to use the stamps that will come with your Paper Pumpkin. Simply press the stamp firmly onto the clear block and the stamp will adhere to the block. Ink up your stamp, and you are ready to go! When you are finished stamping, just peel the stamp off the block.


How much does a Paper Pumpkin membership cost each month?  Paper Pumpkin is $19.95 per month. Because your Paper Pumpkin ships automatically to you, we have already built in the shipping costs of $5.00 to the cost of each kit.

How do I start my Paper Pumpkin membership? It's so easy—you can visit www.mypaperpumpkin.com to sign up. Your membership will last until you cancel it. All you need to do is log on to your Paper Pumpkin account on www.mypaperpumpkin.comand choose cancel before the 10th of the month and you will not receive any more Paper Pumpkin kits. If you cancel on the 11th of the month, you'll receive that month's Paper Pumpkin and will not receive any more Paper Pumpkin kits.


When do I need to sign up in order to get my Paper Pumpkin?  You need to sign up by the 10th of the month in order to receive your Paper Pumpkin for that month. If you sign up after the 10th―no worries! You will get your first kit the following month. You'll know your Paper Pumpkin is on its way when you receive your shipment confirmation e-mail.


Can I skip a month? You sure can! Simply log on to your account on www.mypaperpumpkin.com and click skip a month before the 10th of the month in order to skip the Paper Pumpkin for that month. If you click skip a month on the 11th of the month, you will receive that month's Paper Pumpkin and not receive the following month's Paper Pumpkin.
 
You can cancel at any time after your first month -  no commitments!~

Mini calendars for 2014



 Every year I make mini-calendars to send to my family and friends who are on the east coast and put them with their Christmas cards.  This way they will think of me every month, right?!
One thing they can count on is that I only just get them done and in the mail just before Christmas....lol.  And when they get them will depend on the mail - I see that there was a big snafu with UPS late holiday deliveries.  Did that affect any of you?  Fortunately I pack my mini-calendars nicely in an envelope that is accepted by the USPO so I am pretty sure they got theirs just fine.
But I wanted to share some pictures I took of some of the mini-calendars.

 I used the textured white cardstock  you can get from Stampin' Up and old olive cardstock.  I had two tree diecuts I liked and couldn't decide which one to use, so I did some of each!
One of the tree dies is from Impression Obsession.
 The white cardstock was embossed with different embossing folders by Cuttlebug. 
 I decorated the trees with pearls, rhinestones, or both.  The jute string went through the hole at the top and I didn't tie it so that the calendar would lie flatter in the envelope and go through the mailing sorter.
 I had ordered the mini-calendars earlier this year - so I just had to remember where I had put them!


 The old olive cardstock was also textured (from the holiday Stampin' Up catalog that just ended) and looked beautiful and elegant with the white textured cardstock.


 I think the thing that was most time consuming was putting the green glue on the backs to make sure all the branches would stick to the paper - I did that while I was watching television; all those holiday shows!


 All of the diecuts and embossing folders I used can go through Stampin' Up's big shot machine.  And now with the magnetic platform, it is super easy to make sure the metal diecuts don't move around.  In fact, I was able to cut two trees at a time!



Well, since I didn't make any extra calendars for myself, I will just have to make a few more in different colors!
