Welcome to our monthly “A Paper Pumpkin Thing” blog hop! Check out this month's Paper Pumpkin alternatives that we created and scroll down to join us on a blog hop to see what our creative friends have made with the contents of the July 2022 Sending Good Thoughts Paper Pumpkin kit.
Registration for the next Paper Pumpkin is closing on the tenth of August so make sure you sign up so you don't miss out on the creativity that is literally delivered to your front door.
For this kit, we created some fun alternatives using the provided card front and bottle/star fish die cuts. To add a little twist to the bottle card, we included the Vintage Bottle Shaker Domes and the Effervescent Elements. For the box, we again used the provided card front from the kit and created the box with Bermuda Bay Cardstock. To go along with the sea theme of the kit, we added some salt water taffy to the inside of the box! Are these adorable?
If you missed out on last month's kit, don't worry! You can still hop in on the fun. For next month, the Sweet Sunflowers Paper Pumpkin Kit has so much in store—elegant watercolor designs hand-crafted by our in-house artists, TWO Classic Stampin’ Spots for a Two-Step stamping experience, and the all-new twist technique to make your floral designs come alive with depth and detail!

What's Paper Pumpkin?
Paper Pumpkin is the perfect way to jump into the world of paper crafting and get your creative “me-time” every month. Each month, we deliver all the stamps, ink, and paper you need to create a fun project, without any stress. Everything is precut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun part of crafting! Our subscribers always have cards and cute gifts on hand for every occasion. Your first kit includes a free gift from us—a clear stamping block. You’ll also build a collection of stamps and ink to use on other projects. There’s no pressure—you can cancel or suspend at any time.
Every kit includes an exclusive stamp set, ink spot, and embellishments to create a predesigned project. At least six times a year, we send an all card kit with eight or more cards. Sometimes the kit includes cards plus gift bags, banners, treat bags, or boxes. Other times, it’s home décor, giftables, or just treat packaging. No matter what it is—we promise you’ll love it, or we’ll make it right!
