New Stampin' Up! My Paper Pumpkin

 

Paperpumpkin
It's a Magical Paper Escape Every Month!
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:

All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!

Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone can enjoy!

Here's How to Get Started:

It's so easy!
Simply sign up for the program starting Monday, January 14 by visiting www.mypaperpumpkin.com and click Get it.
Select me, Lisa Brown, as your demonstrator and every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. (*If you sign up through me, e-mail to let me know!)
Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!

Of course, you'll want to know more. So here are the details:

  • Each month you will receive a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (Everything is 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!
  • Your Paper Pumpkin will ship 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, your kit will ship around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, your first kit will ship around June 15th.)
  • A 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.
  • Starting in early March, we'll offer a Try-It kit if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month.
Your very first Paper Pumpkin kit is the Welcome Kit.  In this Welcome Kit, you will receive a special gift...a free acrylic block!

Here's a picture of the first kit...

Stampin' Up! My Paper Pumpkin


I am so excited about this new kit program!  How fun to have a surprise delivered every month that you can easily create and share..or create and keep! ;)

* This is a brand new program!  It is my understanding the first kits will ship in March.  You will not be billed until your kit ships.

**Please remember to choose me, Lisa Brown, as your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator when you sign up at https://mypaperpumpkin.com, and, **let me know when you do so I can welcome you!

Stampin' Up! My Little Valentine Petite Purse -Reversed!

Petite-purse-my-little-valentine-hearts-a-flutter
Stampin' Up! Petite Purse Valentine Treat Box

The Stampin' Up! Petite Purse in reverse makes a cute little My Little Valentine treat box!  The scalloped heart from the Hearts A Flutter bundle (wood, clear) is stamped on Subtles Designer Print in Pirouette Pink.

I was shocked to discover that I had NO white or Real Red Ribbon but I DID have some coordinating fabric...the Summer Smooches bundle had this adorable red and white print that made for an easy bow embellishment!  Whew!  Stampin' Up! fabric to the rescue!

Before I close today, I promised I would share my 2013 Word of the Year. 
It will be the theme for my 2013 Digital Scrapbooking Project and my word of hope and praise for 2013...

 

2013 Rejoice
2013 Word of the Year
Photo by our daughter, Kristen
Silver Dollar City, Branson MO

 

This photo depicts the meaning of this word for me in this year, 2013. 

We are a reflection of how we live our lives.
It's what the world sees. 

And, how we live and what we project to the world comes back to us.
So I wIll rejoice and strive to create a cycle of hope, joy, and love.

Phil4:4-7
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice!
5 Your kindness should be known to all. The Lord is near.
6 Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.
7 Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
