September's Paper Pumpkin ~ it's Fall Y'all!


September’s kit is a must-have for those who love to celebrate all things spooky. But, for those who don’t enjoy the Halloween haunts, the multi-occasion stamp set combined with a variety of die-cut and reversible paper pieces offers many ways to customize your fall crafts!

The Hello Pumpkin Paper Pumpkin Kit includes enough supplies to create projects celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the autumn season.

July Paper Pumpkin ~ leave a comment!

What do you love most about summer nights?  Is it the lantern-lit parties on the patio?  Maybe it's a sunset Ferris wheel ride at your local fair.  Or, is it watching fireworks and fireflies light up the sky?  Whatever makes you happiest during those treasured summer nights, the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin Kit will inspire you to recreate and celebrate every magical moment!

In this month's mesmerizing kit, you'll find an assortment of supplies you can use to decorate nine postcards, coordinating envelopes, and tealight bags.  But, the magic of Summer Nights doesn't end there ~ you can order an Add-On Kit with an additional 24 card bases & envelopes to use the remaining pieces from your Summer Nights kit to create more summer crafts.

And, I am giving my kit away to a lucky stamper just for commenting on my post today.  That's right, the whole kit is yours just for a comment about your summer favorites!  Comment below and, on Friday this week, I will let Alan choose ~ draw from a 'hat' so to speak.  You will love this kit and your summer memories it brings.  So, leave me a comment before Friday at 6 PM!
