There is always so much product in each one!!! Sign up now with the Promo Code: STARTHERE and you can get June, July, & August at 25% off which makes it even more fabulous!

LOOK AT ALL OF THESE!!!! I created 17 Cards and 9 Treat Bags with this kit!!! It technically states that it makes 9 cards and 9 treat bags but with all of the leftovers, I added a little bit of my own cardstock to create even more!!! Let’s look at it all!
So here are the original 9 cards that the kit creates! There are actually enough donut pieces (top and bottom cards) to make all the cards in the same style but I did 3 and 3 and then used the leftovers for my other cards! These cards were super simple to make and I just love the greetings. They are perfect for any occasion and super cute! Since my husband loves donuts, I got him to help me put this kit together. He did all of the pearl and sprinkle placement…….and then we went out to the local bakery for a donut! 🙂
I stamped all of the little greeting stickers so they will be ready when I am! The treat bags are the perfect size for a little something sweet and even have a nice score line to fold the top flap over! The gold twine adds a little extra bling to the treat! I did put one of the extra donuts on a treat bag for decoration. I thought this would be perfect to drop a Starbucks Gift Card into as a gift. Super cute and great to have on hand for a hostess gift or pick-me-up gift! I just love it!
These are all of the extra cards I created with the leftovers. I used Very Vanilla and Whisper White for my card bases. I added in some Pink Pirouette and So Saffron for a little bit of color! Then I just added the leftover pieces and tied some of the Gold Twine around it. I have 1 pearl and more twine to use on the treat bags left over. Oh, you can’t forget the Soft Suede Ink Pad and fabulous stamp set too!
Do you all love Paper Pumpkin as much as me??? You can see the unboxing and reveal of this kit here. My favorite part is the surprise of it each month. I also love that it is all wrapped up like a present. After all, we all deserve a present each month, don’t we?!?!?!

I love the April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit – A Sara Thing because I love watercolor pencils and black & which with a pop of color!!!! It was super fun to put this kit together! Look at all of the goodies. You can see the complete unboxing of this kit here!
I love the little mini Colored Pencils and I can always use these for future projects as well! To be honest, I actually used an Aqua Painter rather than a cup of water and the provided brush! Less mess and I tend to make lots of them! 🙂 Here are all of the cards completed!!!
Look at all of that beautiful color! This picture just makes me so happy and look at all of those cards from one kit! Amazing! Now let’s focus on each card set!
Okay so did you also notice that the envelope have that fabulous label and each set has a different inside pattern! How fabulous?!?!? So this set I had a little problem with it….can you guess? I stamped the greetings on the white panels and didn’t realize it needs to be placed low or high so the diamond doesn’t cover it. Oops! The lower right corner one is a little covered but I think it will be okay! I simply scribbled over each diamond with the pencils and then blended the colors together with the Aqua Painter! Next, I wiped off the top with a napkin to get any excess ink off the embossed portion. The flowers are a little chunky but I loved how they accented the card so I added them on!
This pattern was super fun to color with. My favorite one is the lower left corner. I just love it! The Black and White Washi Tape is the perfect accent on the bottom of the watercolor paper! Love it! The flowers add a little bling and texture too!
These were the most fun and my favorite set because it’s so easy to just swish back and forth to watercolor. Blending the blue and yellow to make green was super fun too! I love the little random dot stamp too! Another tip is that there are few greetings that fit on the banner because the “You” doesn’t fit. I just stamped the “You” onto the watercolor paper! It turned out perfectly!
Another reason I love Paper Pumpkin is because look at all of these leftovers I have to use on other projects!! I forgot to put the little paint brush in the photo as well! I just love Paper Pumpkin!!!

You all know I LOVE Paper Pumpkin because of the fun surprise each month. The March 2017 Kit – Bunny Buddies is soooo amazing! Even more than I originally thought…..look at everything I made!!! Don’t forget today is the last day to sign up for the April Kit! There is a free gift in there to celebrate Paper Pumpkin’s 4th Birthday! I can’t wait to see what it is!!! Click here to sign up TODAY to get the April kit!
The kit came with all these amazing goodies to make 9 treat bags and 9 mini cards with envelopes. Bunnies are the theme which is perfect for Easter and Spring. The stamp set had lots of fun greetings so you could mix it up. Check out the reveal of the kit here! I made the 9 little bags for my nieces and nephews with candy inside! I didn’t add the little clothespin and greeting because I figured they wouldn’t care or even notice.
Look how adorable these are!!! TIP: Press lightly with the stamp in the ink pad and onto the canvas bag or you will end up with a little extra gray than you anticipated! 🙂
Then because I bought the biggest bag of candy possible and couldn’t resist wanting to eat it all, I thought I would make more treat bags using others I had on hand!
Next, I used the small Gusseted Cellophane Bags, added some candy and stamped the bunny face! I used up the clothespins with some of the Baker’s Twine tied around it and when I ran out of those I used some Playful Palette Washi Tape. These were so simple and quick to create! I love them!
When I ran out of the gusseted bags, I used a few of the Glassine Gift Bags I had. I just stamped right onto the bag and used some leftover bunny ear stickers!
Okay, I almost forgot the 9 cards from this kit as well! Now you know why I am blown away with everything I got out of this kit!! Aren’t these little cards adorable! I created the folded over bunny ear by stamping it on the sticker and cutting it out! Just like this…
The March Kit is my favorite one of the year so far; love it!!! I can’t believe how much I was able to create with the products in this kit and the stamp set! I love how Paper Pumpkin comes with enough to complete the kit as well as extras to use on other projects! Don’t forget today is the last day to sign up for the April Kit! It is going to a fabulous one since Sara Douglas, Stampin’ Up CEO created it AND there is a free gift in there to celebrate Paper Pumpkin’s 4th Birthday! WOOT WOOT!

How fabulous is this February 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit?!?!?!?! I love the pull tab concept and the beautiful candle look with that gold glimmer flame! Love it!!! You can see the entire reveal of this kit on my video here!
This kit came with all of the goodies shown above – 2 ink spots (bonus), stamps, 9 envelopes, adhesive, and supplies for the 9 cards. The only thing included but not pictured above is the invitation inserts. The kit included little cards that said Date, Time, Place, Etc to use these cards as birthday invitations. Since I just did all birthday cards, I have those to use on future invites or as a white card using the back side!!!
Of course the instructions came with the kit as well. TIP: READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! I did not as I am more of a visual person and I thought while I was watching a video, I would fold and assemble all of the candle bases. After this was done, I read the instructions for the rest of the card and realized I was suppose to stick the flame in each one before sealing it closed. Opps! Crisis averted when I used my Paper Snips to open the little tops and slide in the candle flame! It was easy!
I actually pulled out my Crushed Curry Ink Pad as well for some more color! I really had fun decorating each of these and the envelope flaps! Also, there are little grooves so you can add a gift card or note! Super fun!!!
