Picnic Paradise & Summer Savings

I love working Stampin' Up! as a business, but I also enjoy receiving some creativity in a box each month. My Paper Pumpkin subscription brings "creativity in a box" to my house each month. There's no fuss, no stress, no long list of things to buy or pull out. I simply sit and open my box to a surprise with projects planned for me and all the supplies I need. I simply sit down with my red-orange box, my adhesive, and paper snips, and I'm ready to craft. I love that the projects come with directions, color photo, and high-quality supplies. And if I'm not "in love" with the project (which usually I am), I know there are lots of sources on social media that will give me alternative projects to make using that month's kit. AND, if I REALLY, REALLY love it, I can often purchase refill kits on the Paper Pumpkin website. PLUS, I have an extensive collection of stamp sets and ink spots that I can use over and over in the future. It's a winning situation no matter how you look at it.

Monthly subscription cost is $19.95 + tax per month. New Subscribers, get 50% off their first kit when you subscribe in the next 2 days. Promotion ends August 10th. Please click to be directed to and sign up today. I'd appreciate it if you would designate me, Mary Knabe, as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator. You can cancel your subscription at anytime.


In case you're wondering what the kits are like, here are some photos of my July kit as I unboxed it to do the projects which were easy, fun, and colorful. I think I'll fill the baskets with little treats for some back to school gifts. The 3" x 3" note cards will certainly get used and bring smiles to their recipients, perhaps, with baked goods, flowers, or small gifts.

Your Paper Pumpkin kit will arrive by USPS after the 15th of each month.
Every kit comes with a stamp set and ink spot.
Behind the tissue paper is your complete kit wrap and sealed to protect your supplies.
Add paper snips and adhesive, and you're ready to go!
I suggest you begin by sorting your supplies. Notice that pieces are die cut for you. They punch out quickly and easily.
The printed ruler at the bottom of the directions makes measuring and cutting ribbons and trims quick and easy.
Left over supplies, stamp set, and ink so I can keep on creating.


I made a few cards without the sentiment so I can use them for whatever I want.
I bundled 6 cards and envelopes to give as a teacher gift.


I use some extra supplies and a bit of my own ribbon to make a couple alternate projects...3 bookmarks and an 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" photo holder to be framed or added to a scrapbook. You could add a title or caption such as "The Apple of My Eye" or "First Day of Kindergarten". IMG_8154
