Never papercrafted before? Looking for something amazing and quick yet worthy of ooohs and ahhhhs when you present your creations to others? The monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit is for you!

Watch as I unpack the October 2020 Kit and show you some cards I created with it in the video below. (sorry I had the mirror image incorrect, learning curve) I have even more cards to show you below!

Even though this specific Paper Pumpkin Kit is no longer available, the November 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit is filled with gingerbread men and Christmas galore! Watch for my posts on this great kit coming at the end of November!

Not only do you get a great kit every month that creates amazing crafts for only $21.00 a month mailed right to you, but you also receive the support of a community with ideas, discussions, and photos for ideas on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest!

Below I stamped my own background paper using the stamp set in the kit and Soft Suede and Real Red ink pads on Whisper White Card Stock! This was fun and I love how it turned out! The red paper behind the sentiment is actually a deconstructed envelope from the kit! Sure, do what you want with the kit! Make it your own! I cut the inside of the envelopes out and used them for my cards!

I created this darling gift tag using Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake card stock and I stamped it with Cherry Cobbler ink using the stamp set in the Paper Pumpkin Kit! I also used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch to get the design at the top of the tag as well as the hole for the twine! You can still write a To: and From: inside for the perfect package trimming! I used the cable Knit patterned paper that comes in the kit here and sponged it with Soft Suede Ink to tone it down a bit! All items used to make the items pictured are listed below!

Below is a great example of using the deconstructed envelopes and card fronts as layering pieces, and you can see that I cut down one of the kit's card bases and added it to the right side of a card base made with Cherry Cobbler card stock. I then placed my sentiment on that. The Cherry Cobbler card stock is the only extra product I used besides the kit here! Well, I also added some Holiday Rhinestones for some bling because sometimes a card is just not finished until there is bling! Subscriber to Paper Pumpkin

Sing it! Go ahead! Jeremiah was a bullfrog! HaHa! This card is made with the kit, the deconstructed envelope, and Cherry Cobbler ink. This card is sparkly, shiny, glimmery, and full of JOY!

Want to follow the amazing directions that come with the kit? You will be blown away by the beautiful, handmade items you will create without purchasing anything else but the kit! Everything you need is right there, every month. I used only the kit to create this precious Christmas card that anyone I know would love to receive!!!!! Subscriber to Paper Pumpkin

Here is a list of all of the products I used to make 10 beautiful cards from this kit! "Click Add All To Cart" or click on the product your would like to order or know more about!
