Thank you Paper Pumpkin!


September's Paper Pumpkin box arrived in my mail box this week.  The predominate color used in the images is Lost Lagoon ~ love that color!  The kit is designed to make eight treat bags and eight small notecards.  I was in need of some thank you cards so I changed the treat bags into the cards I needed ~ love how they turned out!

The journal is available while supplies last.  I checked this afternoon and it is still available.  You can order online or I can order it for you ~ if you are a subscriber to PP.  The pages are lined like a notebook ~ wide lines ~ and it comes with a gold clip to keep your place in the journal.  It would be a good gift if you are not interested in journaling yourself.  I like to collect positive thoughts and thankful notes and this journal is purrrfect!

My PP Person ~ Melissa! SAVE NOW!

Hi Susan Elise,

As Bonus Days closes soon (July 31), I have been doing a lot of math regarding Paper Pumpkin prepaid plan. 

I knew there was a savings to go with a prepaid plan; specifically the 12-month prepaid plan.  I then realized when you do the prepaid plan online – or through a demonstrator – shipping & handling is charged. Hmmmm, I was bummed.  How will this save me money??.  So I made a spreadsheet:


WELL NOW, there IS still a savings, even after paying S&H.  I did not include taxes in either calculation, since taxes are charged regardless.  Even after paying S&H, you still get almost ONE MONTH free.  AND:

            The $243.00 gets you 10% or $24.30 in hostess Fun Money

            The $243.00 during BONUS DAYS gets you 4 $5 coupons ($5 coupon for every $50 spent).

 Then I thought, SPEND $7 MORE and get ANOTHER $5 coupon.  I put one of my embellishment picks into my basket, totaled $250.50 in product and got:

            12-months Paper Pumpkin for about the same as 11 monthly payments

            $25 worth of Hostess Fun money (what shall I get?)

            $25 worth of Bonus Days coupons to spend in August (5 x $5)

I am hitting “BUY NOW”!  Thought you and your stampin friends would like to know. 


Best Regards,
