I made my December Paper Pumpkin Kit within a couple of days of getting it!!! First time in a long time. I did just follow the directions. In 2018 I hope to post the “By the Directions” and an alternative project using the Paper Pumpkin Kit each month.

What do I need to do to Subscribe or get my Prepaid Kits?
You will need to set up an account for both Prepaid Kits and a Monthly Subscription. Watch this short video to show you how. Both the links above should automatically list me to be your Demonstrator.
What is included in the Kits?
~All the supplies to make the projects in the kit. December’s Kit included a 1″ ink pad, Photopolymer stamps, Glue Dots, card bases, envelopes,Baker’s Twine, cardstock and die cuts to make the eight cards – 4 each of 2 designs.
~Your first Kit will include a stamp block.
~Each month’s Kit always includes one or two 1″ ink pads and stamps.
~Most kits’ projects are cards.
~Some past kits have included: a mini scrapbook/journal, home decor wreath, gift bags, and treat bags.
What else will I need to make the projects?
~Basic Tools: Bone Folder, scissors
~I also use the regular Stampin’ Up! Glue Dots and Fast Fuse or SNAIL adhesives.
~The Kit Glue Dots come as little circles covered with white or patterned paper on a clear sheet. I am not very coordinated in using them. My grandchildren do fine with them.
What ages can use Paper Pumpkin Kits?
~I have made these Kits with my grandchildren as young as 3 years old. Plan on supervising and helping the younger children. I usually bring a Kit with when I visit my daughter and her family in New Hampshire. I did forget one time….. My 8 year old grandson asked what craft I brough for them to make. He was disappointed I did not bring one. 🙁
This is the last Paper Pumpkin card for the February 2016 Kit. This card uses the same flower stamps as the last one. I repositioned them on the block and used Lost Lagoon ink. The gold outlined flower, the green leaf, and the Pool Party flower are self-adhesive die cuts from the Kit. There are several cards in each design and plenty of die cuts to use. There is also a cute envelope for each card.
Here is the 2nd card I made from the February 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit. The Kit does come with some basic instructions which you can follow if you want to. I partially followed the instructions for this card. I added some stamping using two of the Flower Stamps that came in the Kit. I also used Elegant Eggplant ink instead of the Blackberry Bliss ink that came with the Kit. The outlined flower and leaves and the solid Pool Party flower are self-adhesive die cuts included with the kit.
Each month as a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber, both Month-to-Month AND Prepaid Subscriber, you will receive and email with links to:
The Project Video for the month (about 3 minutes long demonstrating all three cards). This is nice to watch if you need some visual basic instructions.
The Stampin’ Up! Blog Post which shows the full Stamp Set included, all the cards made up, and the cute envelopes, plus a photo of each card.
There is also a link to get a Refill Kit. What is the difference between an extra Kit and a Refill Kit?
~The Kit comes with everything your original kit came with including the stamps and the 1″ ink pad called a Stampin’ Spot.
~The Refill Kit does not include the stamps or the Stampin’ Spot ink pad. It does include everything else needed to make the projects.

The card above is made with the printed card base, the Happy Birthday stamp, banner, and ink pad that came with the Kit. I added the 1″ x 3-1/2″ Blackberry Bliss banner and hand cut the notched ends. I also added some Dimensionals on the Banner. This card took about 2 minutes to make. Glue Dots are included with the Kit, but I was in the mood to use Stampin’ Dimensionals.
