Hello, and welcome to my blog. Today I’m going to share with you this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit titled “To You & Yours”. This is a very fun festive box and project. Here’s a look at the cards for this month.

This month’s cards are so very festive and feature plaid backgrounds, pine Accents and some braided cherry cobbler ribbon. Plus the envelopes have a very fun plaid on the inside liner.

Here’s a look at what came in this month’s kit.

The first card I put together was the one with the cherry cobbler plaid background. I picked it because it was from what I had heard was the easiest of the two. But I found them both to be really easy.

I first did the Stampin on my rectangle piece and then added the wood grain strip (that already has adhesive on it) to the panel. Next I added three of the pine stems and then added the vellum circle to the center. I popped the sentiment up on dimensionals and added a bow with the braided ribbon trim. To finish off the card I added three of the adhesive backed sequins.

Next I did the second card (the one with the Very Vanilla plaid). This was the one that I had been told was really hard to do. I have had my kit for a week and hadn’t touched it because I’ve been fighting this cold. So yesterday I started tackling it.

For this card I added the plaid background first as I did with the other card. Then I attached the wood grain circle (also adhesive backed). Next I took eight of the pine boughs and started forming the wreath shape. I used mini glue dots to secure each one. It wasn’t as hard as some people had said. I then stamped the sentiment on the banner. I added a vellum banner to the front of the wreath. Popped up my sentiment banner with Dimensionals. And added the bow with the braided trim. I added a few of the adhesive backed sequins to the card front and attached it to the crumb cake card base.

Each Paper Pumpkin Kit comes with at least one Stampin’ ink spot, and a exclusive stamp set. That can be used over and over. Here’s a look at this month’s stamp set.

This month’s kit makes 20 cards. You make 10 each of 2 designs. Later this week I will be sharing my 10 cards with one kit video where I will show you ten different alternative projects with this month’s kit plus some additional supplies. And I will be doing this month’s A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop with some fellow demonstrators where we each will share a alternative card and 3D project you can make so be on the look out for those.

Now I have to share some news about next month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. We got this update the other day from the home office.

PAPER PUMPKIN IS SOLD OUT FOR DECEMBER

Due to record numbers of kits sold in the past several months, new subscriptions for Paper Pumpkin are closed for the month of December.

What this means . . . 

New customers will not be able to subscribe until December 11, 2018 and will receive their first kit in January.

Current subscribers will still be able to manage their accounts via the regular login process. However, they will NOT be able to add additional December kits to their order. We strongly recommend that all subscribers check their account information to ensure that their account is up-to-date. Due to inventory levels, we cannot guarantee a second billing.

Canceled subscribers can still return, but after November 21 at 5:00 PM (MT), they will receive December’s kit based on availability; additionally, if kits are available, returning subscribers will only be allowed one kit.

If we are unable to fulfill orders for returning subscribers (as noted above), we will notify you on the billing date (December 11, 2018). Your subscription will be automatically suspended and you will not be billed for December. These subscriptions will automatically resume in January unless the account status is changed to “canceled.”

So I wanted to remind you that the Paper Pumpkin subscription program is as popular as it has ever been and we are experiencing strong growth. In order to avoid missing out on these amazing kits, the best way to avoid disappointment is to subscribe and remain active in the program.
