For those of you who are new to My Paper Pumpkin and hoping to make some 12×12 pages from your kit (or for those of you who haven't made anything with your Welcome Kit), I have some pages that will hopefully inspire you.

Not familiar with My Paper Pumpkin?

My Paper Pumpkin
is a fun box of creativity that comes to your mailbox each month. If
you are new to crafting or don't have a lot of supplies, Paper
Pumpkin 'as is' is perfect for you. If you are an avid crafter and
experienced, then… Paper Pumpkin (with my twist on it) is perfect for
you. In other words, if you'd like to get a surprise box of crafting
each month, then get a subscription. I'll share variations (as you can see below) for each month's kit.

If you check out my 2/15/13 post,
you'll get an idea of what it's about. I've also listed some FAQ's from
Stampin' Up! below. But feel free to contact me if you want to sign up
or learn more.

For the pages below (made with the Welcome Kit) I only added Basic Black 12×12 card stock (the base of the pages), 8-1/2×11 Tempting Turquoise card stock, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, and supplies for the title – I used Old Olive card stock, Jet Black StazOn ink, and the Make A Wish stamp set (wood-mount or clear-mount). Then I just used my Stampin' Trimmer, Paper Snips, and SNAIL adhesive to help put it all together.


The gray and white photo mats are made from the cards and envelopes that come in the Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit. So no need to get extra card stock beyond the black and turquoise!


The circle "bursts", outline circle bursts, and the scallops are Old Olive stickers that come in the kit. The white card stock within the outline circle bursts is from the cards that come in the kit.


The flags (cut from the designer paper that comes in the kit) are easy to attach. Just lay out the bottom flags first with SNAIL adhesive, attach the second set of flags with Dimensionals, then just stick on the third set (from the sticker embellishments that come in the kit).



The buttons (also from the kit) are just attached with glue dots.

I hope you were inspired to make something unique with your Paper Pumpkin kit

Paper Pumpkin FAQs

Q: Why are we offering Paper Pumpkin?

Good question. Paper Pumpkin is the perfect introduction to Stampin'
Up! We designed it for crafters that want to create a project each
month, but aren't quite ready to build a stamp collection (yet).

Q: What comes in my Paper Pumpkin?

It's a surprise each month-anticipation for the surprise is seriously
half the fun! No worries, though, you'll have everything you need to
complete the project: paper, stamps, ink, accessories, and more! (You
will need adhesive.)

Q: Does my Paper Pumpkin project come with instructions?
A: Yes, of course it does. The instructions will tell you everything you need to know. And they are so easy to follow-we promise.

Q: How long will it take to make each Paper Pumpkin project? (Now say that fast three times.) 
We know you wish you had unlimited creativity time (we all do), but
since you probably don't, we designed each Paper Pumpkin to be completed
in 30 minutes or less! (We think of it as a spa treatment for your

Q: Should I get on the Paper Pumpkin carriage?

Definitely, yes. Just think of it-a Stampin' Up! surprise delivered to
your doorstep every month (wahooo!) Paper Pumpkin offers a simple,
creative experience each month. What's more-sometimes, your monthly kit
features . . . wait for it . . . some exclusive products you can only
get through Paper Pumpkin. Try it and see what you think. You can cancel
(or put on hold) your membership any time.

Q: How much does a Paper Pumpkin membership cost each month?
Paper Pumpkin is $19.95 per month. Because your Paper Pumpkin ships
automatically to you, we have already built in the shipping costs.

Visit to sign up-it's that easy!

Q: When does my membership expire?
A: Your membership will last until you cancel it.

Q: When do I need to sign up in order to get my Paper Pumpkin?
You need to sign up on or before the 10th of the month in order to
receive your Paper Pumpkin for that month. If you sign up after the
10th, no worries! You will get your first kit the following month. You'll
know your Paper Pumpkin is on its way when you receive your shipment
confirmation e-mail.

Q: Can I skip a month?
You sure can! Simply log on to your account and click "manage my
pumpkin", then click "skip a month" on or before the 10th of the month
in order to skip the Paper Pumpkin for that month. If you do this on the
11th of the month, you will receive that month's Paper Pumpkin and not
receive the following month's Paper Pumpkin.

Q: What if I want to cancel my membership?

You must submit a 10-page essay about why you would ever want to do
such a crazy thing. (Just kidding.) It's simple. Simply log on to your
account and click "manage my pumpkin", then click "cancel" on or before
the 10 th of the month in order to cancel completely. Then, you will not
receive any more Paper Pumpkin kits (how sad). If you cancel on the
11th of the month, you'll receive that month's Paper Pumpkin and will
not receive any more Paper Pumpkin kits.
