The latest Paper Pumpkin arrived at my door a few days ago.  Do you know what I enjoyed most about receiving Paper Pumpkin the last 2 months?  I didn't hve to think about creating for Mother's day or Father's Day.  Paper Pumpkin has me covered.  

If you only have a short time that you can devote to creating, then Paper Pumpkin is perfect.  The only supplies that you need to have on hand are a pair of scissors and some adhesive.  Everything else is included in the monthly kit.

Woohoo!  Stampin' Up! just announced that you can pick up the June Paper Pumpkin Kit for half-price.  What an opportunity to see what it is all about!

Here are some pics of the projects from the last 2 kits.

The kit even included cute packaging! Wouldn't this be cute for a friend, a birthday, or an adorable pic for yourself!  The kit came with 2 frames so I get one too!Mother's Day 1

We all struggle with cards for the guys but aren't these cards perfect for the men in your life?

Here's a look at all of the cards that were created using the kit.

Want to promote Paper Pumpkin at your parties and events? Do it by offering prepaid subscriptions-your hostess earns benefits for them!

With  Mother's Day just around the corner, it's a great time to take advantage of these prepaid subscriptions that can be bought as gifts. It's the gift that keeps on giving!


ItemPaper Pumpkin Prepaid SubscriptionPrice (Shipping Included)
137858 1 month$19.95
137859 3 months$59.85
137860 6 months$113.70 — save $1 per month
137861 12 months$215.40 — save $2 per month



The Perks

  • Paper Pumpkin Hostess Benefits: You can add prepaid subscriptions to workshop orders, which means the hostess can earn benefits on Paper Pumpkin! 
  • Higher Commissions: You get commissions on the full price of the prepaid subscriptions even though the shipping costs are calculated into the price. 
  • Uninterrupted Subscriptions: When your customers redeem their subscription on, they can put in their payment information at checkout to keep receiving their monthly kit once their prepaid subscription ends (although they aren't required to give their payment information).


How It Works

  1. When your customer places their order, they'll receive an e-mail with instructions on how to redeem the prepaid subscription.
  2. They'll go to and enter the redemption code.
  3. They'll start enjoying their monthly Paper Pumpkin project kit the very next month!

The Fine Print

  • Prepaid subscriptions can be made on all order types: demonstrator, workshop, customer, or online.
  • Each Paper Pumpkin account can only use one redemption code at a time. For example, if someone buys two six-month prepaid subscriptions, they'll enter the first code and then after six months can enter the second code. 
  • When calculating a customer's order, which includes a prepaid subscription, remember that shipping is included-so you won't have to figure shipping for that item; however, you will need to include tax (use the hostess's tax rate).
  • While not intended to be a gift subscription program, you or your customers can buy a prepaid subscription and give it as a gift. You'd just purchase the prepaid subscription and when you receive the redemption code, share it with the recipient of your choice who can redeem the subscription at
  • Redemption codes will become invalid if not used within three years of the purchase date (two years for residents of California). 
  • Take a look at the Paper Pumpkin FAQ for more information on prepaid subscriptions.


  • Encourage your customers to put in their payment information when they're redeeming their prepaid subscription so they'll get to continue receiving their monthly kit after their prepaid subscription ends. (But your customers won't have to put in their payment information if they don't want to.)
  • Let your hostesses know that they will earn benefits for prepaid subscriptions. Coach them to think of all their friends who'd love to receive a project kit every month. Remember that even if they can't attend the workshop, prepaid subscriptions can be ordered with a hostess code.
  • Talk about Paper Pumpkin at all your stamping events. Let people know how exciting it is to receive each month, and how much fun it is to put together the projects. If customers seem nervous about committing, recommend a three-month prepaid subscription as a good trial so they can learn how much they love it. 
  • Consider contacting all of your current Paper Pumpkin subscribers to let them know this option is now available. If they love the program, they may want to consider a prepaid subscription as a gift for a friend.
