December 2019 Paper Pumpkin Something for Everything

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you this month's Paper Pumpkin.  I got mine last week and started putting it together over the weekend.  Paper Pumpkin is our monthly subscription craft kit that is delivered to your mail box.  Each month everything in the box is different as well as the projects.  Some months you may make cards, and some maybe a dimensional project.  Each month is a surprise in a box delivered to your door.  Paper Pumpkin contains everything you need to create each project and there's always directions, and a little video provided by Stampin' Up!.  This months kit contained 12 cards (4 each of 3 designs) and here are the cards as they were intended (well somewhat).

What's inside the box:  

Each month each box has different projects and different components all ready to put together.  Inside each box along with the supplies for the projects you get a  exclusive stamp set and a new ink spot. The ink spot is just a smaller version of our larger ink pads.  I love to use them to travel and to use with my Stamparatus.  
Here's a look at the supplies that came in this month's kit.  Along with the card bases and matching envelopes we got four sheets of die cut stickers that we used to embellish one of the card designs.  There were three sheets of gold foil die cut stickers that also embellished the cards.  Also in this months kit was a set of die cut banners to stamp all our sentiments on.  
That was all the items to make the cards besides a little pack of champagne rhinestones, stampin' dimensionals, and this month's stamp set.  
This month's stamp set features a ton of sentiments.  This stamp set has so many sentiments that you should be able to find the perfect one for the perfect card.  Also in the stamp set is a small flower image with three little flowers, perfect to embellish up your cards.  
The final item in this month's kit as I mentioned was the ink spot.  Each month we get at least one in a coordinating color.  Some times we may get a couple of ink spots in coordinating colors.  This month's color came in a new 2019-2021 In Color.   Which was very exciting, and it was one of my favorite colors.  So I am sure you are wondering what color was in the box; well it was Terracotta Tile.  A great warm dark coral color perfect for so many project.  

This Month's Cards: 

As I mentioned above this month's Paper Pumpkin kit (Something for Everything) made twelve cards (four each of three designs).  One of the great things about Paper Pumpkin is that I can sit down and put the kits together anywhere and they don't take very long at all.   This was the first card that I made with this month's kit.  
I love this background paper on all the cards, but this one was one of my favorites.  I love the gold foil accents and the mix of patterns.  
The next card in this months kit features the die cut stickers and the gold foil die cut swirl.  This was probably one of the simplest cards to put together.   I stamped a simple thank you on one of the banners and added a few of the rhinestones to finish off the card.  
The last card in this month's card kit came out a little different than intended.  I was supposed to have put the main focal point of the card in the bottom right of the card but silly me had the card upside down when I created it.  So it ended up being on the top left corner instead.  I used one the hexagon sticker and the small gold foil leaves.  I stamped the banner with Happy Birthday to make it a super simple birthday card.  To finish off the card I added a few of the rhinestones in the kit.  
So are you wondering how you can get started creating using Paper Pumpkin!  It's super simple you can subscribe for a monthly subscription, or you can purchase prepaid subscriptions for 1, 3, 6, or 12 month's.  To get kit for a certain month you have to subscribe by the 10th of each month.  So are you wondering whats the benefits to each way.  

Month to Month: 


A month to month subscription (which is what I do) has a few benefits.  A few of the benefits to this type of subscription are convenience, and you can cancel or suspend your subscription at any time.  A month to month subscription costs $22 a month plus tax.  Which is billed monthly.  

Subscribe to a Monthly Subscription

Prepaid Subscription: 


Benefits to doing a prepaid subscription is you get to enjoy savings with a 6 or 12 month subscription.  You would qualify with the 6 and 12 month subscription for Stampin' Rewards.  During Saleabration you also can qualify for Saleabration items as well.  Another benefit to a prepaid subscription is they make a perfect gift.  You can purchase the subscription and give it to that crafty friend, family member or coworker and they can use the prepaid code to redeem when they want.  


When you subscribe to either plan you also get exclusive access to be able to purchase past kits (while supplies last)  This is something that only a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber can do. 

If you would like to extend the cards in your kit I will be sharing with you a few alternative projects with you this week on my blog and YouTube Channel.  So make sure you are on the watch out for them.  I will also be part of the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop on Thursday when you will see more alternative projects from a very talented group of Demonstrators.
