August Paper Pumpkin

Before I share the August Paper Pumpkin kit, I wanted to remind you that you only have a couple more days to sign up and get the September kit (deadline is 9/10). If you are already signed up for September, but want to receive more than one kit, you can sign into your account and change the quantity on the number of kits to be shipped. If you want to increase only September’s kit, you will need to remember to change it back after your September kit ships. The September kit promises to give you a hand with your Halloween treats.

If I had to guess, I would say that 75% of our Paper Pumpkin kits are card kits and the rest are other things like home décor, treat holders or gift giving. Since we are generally a card making company, most of the kits are cards. However, I personally love the non-card kits, because I always have plenty of cards on hard. Stampin Up understands that it’s tough to make a one-size-fits-all kit so they tried something completely different this month. The August kit contains the supplies to make six gift bags and tags. But, if you aren’t into bags and tags, then you can purchase the separate add-on kit to turn those supplies into cards. The add-on kit contains 24 card bases and envelops and it’s only $10. I love this option! I can use the stamps and extra pieces from the bags and tags to make the cards. Then I can add the cards to the bags and gift them to friends and family this Fall.

This is the kit as designed. These bags are just the cutest size. They are 4.5″ wide x 5.5″ tall x 2″ deep.

This is the add-on card bases and envelops. The card bases are preprinted with these designs. 

And this is the add-on card bases decorated using the supplies from the August Paper Pumpkin kit. 

I’ve had several customers request an add-on kit that they could purchase, like extra paper or embellishments to stretch their kit or make alternate projects. I realize this isn’t quite the same, but it’s definitely a step closer to that since the kit already contains the embellishments and paper.

What do you think of this month’s add-on kit? Did you purchase it yet? If not, I believe we still have them in the online store. Just click the Order Online button on the right and it will take you to my store.
