Paper Pumpkin Promotion

I am having a lot of fun with the monthly Paper Pumpkin and I would love for you to enjoy it as well. I am going to start a monthly get together for all of you that subscribe to the Paper Pumpkin kit. One day during the month we can get together and create our kits together. I will also have a bonus project that we can make with the stamp set that is included with the kit.
After you subscribe just send me an email and I will let you know when the get together will be! Don't forget to select me as your demonstrator when you sign up. Here are some past kits that Stampin' Up! has created....

Black and White and Sketch Challenge for July

Card and sketch challenge accepted. My Stampin' Up! upline has started a monthly challenge. 

The color combo  #SWASColor1  is to use only black and white and the sketch challenge can found at #SWASSketch1 . I found it definitely challenging to only use black and white but I do like how it turned out. 
The stamp set I used is called Hello Life. The accessories are the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder, the Banner Triple punch, Pansy punch, Petite Petals punch, The center of the flower is made by using the Owl Builder punch. The sentiment is heat embossed to make it pop off the Basic Black cardstock.

Paper Pumpkin June 2015

 I have a confession to make... I have been receiving the Paper Pumpkin kit since it started a few years ago and I love to open it and ooh and aah over the kit. I am not entirely sure I have completed an entire kit from start to finish. I have made a revolution to change that! This is June's kit named Happy Thoughts and I have completed it in an afternoon! The pieces are laid out above. It comes with just about everything you will require to put the kit together. Sometimes you will just need some adhesive. The stamp set is below. My daughter thought the flower looked like one she would have drawn in preschool. Which just makes it more adorable.
 A great part of the Paper Pumpkin is that it comes with a colored brochure on the front and a black and white step by step direction in the middle.

 And here are my FINISHED cards with matching envelopes. All 8 of them! I can not wait for the next months kit to arrive in my mailbox! If you would like to join me in the creative fun you can order your own kit and we can get together and make the next kit as long as you order by the 10th of the month you will receive it the following month and we can make a day to assemble the next Paper Pumpkin! Feel free to contact me at with any questions!
