April Paper Pumpkin: A Sara Thing – from STAMPIN’ UP!:
APRIL PAPER PUMPKIN: A SARA THING
The kit you’ve all been waiting for is finally HERE! And, we think A Sara Thing was worth the wait. Here are a few fun things about the kit.
- You’ve probably already noticed that it includes 12 cards (4 ea. of 3 designs) which is four more than our standard eight cards for a cards-only kit.
- There’s a sneak peek at a new color! Lemon Lime Twist is one of our 2017–2019 In Colors, debuting in our upcoming annual catalog on June 1.
- How much do you love the FREE gift from Sara? There are four mini Watercolor Pencils in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, and Rich Razzleberry.
- The words “you” and “best” in the stamp set are Sara’s own handwriting! The set was designed so that you can customize a message for several important people in your life.
- One of Sara’s favorite things about this kit is the stamp set featuring handwritten words paired with clean, simple type.
- The glitter acrylic flowers look amazing on both sides so you can choose which style you like best.
- Sara is drawn to projects with a neutral base and bold pops of color and wanted the palette for this kit to be VERY vibrant and full of life.
- The kit is meant to draw out your own inner artist and have an experience that is uniquely YOU. Don’t be intimidated by watercoloring—just color with the pencils and add water. No two cards will look alike and that’s okay!
Don’t miss this video with Sara! Stamp and watercolor along with her as she gives helpful tips and tricks.
Every Paper Pumpkin kit always has tons of potential for an added creative experience. (Check out our Pinterest page where we scratch the surface of all our subscribers’ amazing projects.) This kit is no exception! There are so many ways you can use it.
First, we always like to show you a project you can make with the supplies included in your kit. Check out this adorable card featuring a watercolor and washi tape background, a simple sentiment, and an adorable glitter acrylic flower embellishment.
Next up, here’s another fun way to use the stamp set. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are right around the corner and this stamp set will help you create the best cards to make both days super special. Use the Best Badge Punch to create a medallion for the best dad. The Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder provides added meaning in the background.
Here’s a beautiful card that Mom will love! The background paper comes from our Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection. Add one of the Delicate White Doilies to soften it up even more.
There are so many wonderful things to love about this kit! It is definitely one of our favorites and we hope you love it too. Order some refills, while supplies last, for $9.00 US/$11.00 CA each. (The price is $1.00 more than our usual price for refills because each kit includes another set of mini Watercolor Pencils and all 12 cards—an amazing value!)

Here is what I woke up to this morning that has made my day – and it’s only 6:26 a.m.! From Claudia – she is like a fourth daughter to me – and my daughter’s best friend who moved down south and was visiting and I told her about Paper Pumpkin and so she took the plunge and became a subscriber – here is her private message that she sent me this morning:
Claudie – you put YOURS together before I even have – LOL! LOVE IT! You did a fantastic job honey!
If you haven’t tried Paper Pumpkin before – WHY NOT? For the kit above – it was 12 (TWELVE) cards! THEY ARE FUN!

I thought I would share with you the March Paper Pumpkin kit projects and alternative projects we made in our monthly class – held the first Saturday of every month! With your paid subscription designating me as your demonstrator – my Paper Pumpkin subscribers are able to COME TO CLASS FREE EACH MONTH! WE HAVE A LOT OF FUN! COME JOIN US!
Here are our projects we did:
Paper square is 4 x 3 – notch all four corners. Place your center label in the middle and then stamp your egg stamp so you leave enough room for your label. Too cute!
Use the 3 x 3 note cards and staple on each side of a little treat cellophane bag filled with chocolate treats!
I sponged the whiskers with some Blushing Bride to give it some color!
I punched out a 1-1/4 inch circle and then stamped my eyes, whiskers and mouth and then stamped and fussy cut out the ears and popped them up on dimensionals for a super cute card or table setting card.
If you want to change the ears to a different color, just trace with a pencil on whatever color card stock you like the ear and then just fussy cut it out and use Fast Fuse to adhere to to the bag.
Notice the different colors? The bag to the left I put in a zip lock baggie with a little bit of bleach and let it sit to bleach it white. The one in the middle is the one in the kit. The one to the right was dyed with a zip lock baggie with some soft suede reinker to give it a darker look. You can dye these any color you want using reinkers!
I hope you enjoyed our March Paper Pumpkin Kit
projects – and if you are one of my subscribers,
you also get a Word document filled with other ideas!

I was in Toronto this past weekend at Stampin’ Up!’s Onstage event where I was invited to be a presenter for Paper Pumpkin! I was so excited and SCARED and NERVOUS – but this is like a once in a lifetime opportunity, so I just had to say yes! Thank you to all my family and friends who showed their support that this is something I could do! Here is a picture of the event from the back – lots of people were in attendance!
Here is the monitor announcing me! VERY exciting – what an honor!
Here is me up on stage…
What a wonderful event and open to any Stampin’ Up! demonstrator to attend. It was a great time of learning of the new products – got to get the new EXCITING catalog – and see all sorts of demonstrations and ideas. Here are some other photographs..
Here is my wonderful upline, Missy Shipman and my sister demonstrator Debbi Hill – we we were treated like royalty at a special dinner on Friday night for Silver Elite and higher titled demonstrators!
Here is a pic of the rest of our team at this event on Friday – Ladies, it was a privilege to have shared this night with you!
Here are some photos of what was served on Saturday:
We had a GREAT time and I’ll share some more photos at next post – quite an experience…
