Thanks! for a Bike Ride

Remember that little bike from one of the early Paper Pumpkin Kits?  It came in handy for this project!

Introducing My Paper Pumpkin


Take a monthly creativity escape with paper crafting kits delivered right to your doorstep. 

I’m Paper Pumpkin . . .

I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I’ll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.

I come in a sweet box, but you’ll really love what you find on the inside:

“My Paper Pumpkin” by Stampin’ Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone (even you) can enjoy!

Makes a great gift for Mom, daughter, and crafty friends too!  

Here’s the nitty gritty:

  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with projects like cards, journals, décor, and more! (all color-coordinated, measured, and cut for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you a 30-minute creativity escape.
  • My Paper Pumpkin ships on or around the 15th of the month.  
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month’s kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let’s say you sign up on May 10th, we’ll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we’ll send your first kit around June 15th.
  • My Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!)
  • There’s no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
  • Program starts in March 2013

Starting in early March, SU will offer a Try-It kit if you’d like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month.
