Picking Paradise ~ Paper Pumpkin August 2018 Unboxing

Great gifts and note cards for “Back to School” and Teachers!

I love when the Paper Pumpkin kit comes in the mail each month! It's like Christmas every month!  A special gift for just me :).  This month I am late in making my unboxing video.  Namely because my wife and I just finished a 6 week kitchen remodel.

So I was knee deep in putting our kitchen back together so we could finally cook.  Boy eating out for the past month and a half has been awful to my wallet and my waist line! I'm getting ready to start Weight Watchers again.  I've gained so much weight in the last month it is not even funny!

I have a video posted at the bottom of this blog post.  Check out the latest unboxing by scrolling down to my youtube video!

Hard to Contain the Excitement

So as usual, I try to hold off watching anyone else's paper pumpkin unboxing because I want my audience to see how I get to see it for the first time.  I love the anticipation and that feeling of glee when I get to open something so pretty!

So for those of you who don't know, Paper Pumpkin, is a subscription craft kit offered by Stampin' Up! on a monthly basis.  The items in the kit are exclusive and you must be a Paper Pumpkin subscriber to get the kit.  The stampsets and most of the items included can not be purchased from the catalog.

Everything You Need

The kit comes with everything you need to make the projects!  And your first Paper Pumpkin kit will also have an acrylic block that you will use with all future kits you receive.  It always comes with the unique stampset as well as an inkspot, glue dots, and all of the remaining items needed to make the project.  You never know what is going to come in the kit.  Sometimes you make cards.  Other times you make gifts or home decor.  Its a surprise each and every month!


And probably one of the coolest things about Paper Pumpkin is that it color coordinates with our Stampin' Up! color families.  In your instruction guide on the back, you will find what colors are used in the kit so if you want to make alternative projects using some of the Stampin' Up! product you have in your stash you can!  I have a whole Pinterest Board devoted to alternative projects!

Ways to Purchase

There are several ways to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin.  The easiest way is have a monthly subscription, where you are automatically debited each month from your credit card.  You can go to my Paper Pumpkin website here to subscribe.  The fee to subscribe monthly is $19.95 and you can quit at anytime.  You just need to pause or cancel your subscription before the 10th of the month.


You can also purchase a pre-paid subscription.  There are prepaid subscriptions available for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months.  Subscribing this way is that you get a discount.  The more months you prepay a subscription the more you save.  Buy a 12 month subscription… you pay for 11 months and get one month free!  And a bonus is that prepaying also qualifies for Stampin Rewards if your total purchase is over $150.  Of course as always, if your order is more than $75, then you always get a free gift from me :).  Check out what this month's free gift is here.

And what I am most excited about this month is that when you subscribe to paper pumpkin before August 10, 2018, you will get 50% OFF your first month.  Just go to my Paper Pumpkin website here and use the promo code BLOOM0818 when checking out to see the savings!
