Stampin’ Up! Key to my Heart January Paper Pumpkin Cards

I’m continuing with the Valentine theme today with nine cards completed from the January 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Key To My Heart!

As you can see, Paper Pumpkin kits come with everything that you need to complete the project – card bases, envelopes, ink, stamps, adhesives embellishments and card components! Paper Pumpkin kits are a great option for avid crafters, people with busy schedules, parents (create with the kids!), and new crafters! This particular kit created a total of nine cards – 3 of each of 3 different designs.

The Key To My Heart Kit also included some vellum and gold components! It took me about an hour to complete all 9 cards.

You can choose to complete the kit as directed (every kit comes with assembly instructions) or put your own spin on things and mix things up a bit and assemble the cards as you’d like!

And here are all nine completed cards!

A Paper Pumpkin subscription is such a great option. You can subscribe to Paper Pumpkin on a month-to-month basis, or purchase a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month subscription. You can expect your kit to arrive around the 20th of eacc month. Kits provide great variety – sometimes cards and sometimes treat boxes or some other goodies!

I love receiving my Paper Pumpkin subscription in the mail…it’s like opening a little surprise each month! Read on to learn about the February Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Stampin’ Up! Good Things Come in Small Packages December Paper Pumpkin

My December Paper Pumpkin kit arrived in the mail, and I had a chance to sit down and assemble a few of the gift card boxes. This kit came with a total of 16 gift card holders – 2 each of 8 reversible designs, precut paper pieces, twine, belly bands, a Stampin’ Spot, photopolymer stamps and enough adhesive to complete each project!

    Stampin’ Up! From The North Pole Gift Tags – November Paper Pumpkin Kit

    I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend and that you’ve recovered from all of the calories consumed on Thanksgiving Day! Perhaps you were out shopping on Black Friday in which case you most likely have already burned off those extra calories!

    9. Once you complete your kit you will have left over materials that can be used on future projects, such as adhesives, stamps, ink spot, etc. Don’t throw away excess card punch outs…use them on a future project!

    What’s more fun than creating your own Halloween treat box? Why, creating 18 fun Halloween treat boxes, of course! I received my September Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail this week and I couldn’t wait to assemble the cute Spooky Treats boxes!

    The Spooky Treats Paper Pumpkin Kit arrived with everything needed to create these adorable boxes and came with enough supplies to create a total of 18 boxes – 3 of each design. The boxes are big enough to fit two fun-size candy bars (I checked :)), so they are a generous size! And they were so much fun to put together!

    If you’re not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber yet, you really need to subscribe! Here’s a glimpse of the October Paper Pumpkin kit – the Ho Ho Ho Paper Pumpkin Kit.

    This kit contains whimsical designs of Santa and his reindeer in a classic Christmas color palette which is sure to match various styles of holiday décor and look great on mantles everywhere.  Each kit contains enough supplies to create 9 festive cards—3 each of 3 designs—and 9 coordinating envelopes. These cards are sure to bring the warm holiday spirit.

    And word from the North Pole is that this kit coordinates with next month’s Paper Pumpkin tag kit and a special add-on product! With so much coordination between products, you’ll have a breeze at creating a cohesive look for all your holiday gifting needs. Make this season the most wonderful time of the year for your loved ones—and for yourself!

The event will feature card making presentations live on the event Facebook page as well as some fun giveaways! 

    Stampin’ Up! will also be hosting an event online (see the details below) and we’re scheduling our event so that it runs before and after the Stampin’ Up! event!  Most of us will be using one of the three bundles from the Stampin’ Up! event for our projects so you will come away from the day with tons of ideas for those three bundles!

    All are welcome to join us for this fun-filled day!  We’ll be setting up a Facebook page to host the event and will be sharing the link to the page in late September.  Keep an eye out on my blog for more details! 

    Free Virtual Craft-Along Event with Stampin’ Up!

    Stampin’ Up! is also hosting a free, virtual card making event on October 1st.  In just under three hours, Stampin’ Up will make three unique cards and will share the instructions with you.  Everyone is invited and welcome, and registration is not required.  Mark your calendars now!

    Where: Online
    Price of Event: Free

    Everyone is invited and welcome to attend this FREE event!  There will be three card-making presentations and you are welcome to craft along.  If you don’t want to craft along, join us anyway!  It’s the perfect opportunity to hang out, watch, and be a part of the Stampin’ Up! experience.

    Product Ordering Details:

    World Card Making Day is all about making beautiful, heartfelt cards. During the event, Stampin’ Up! will walk you through several projects, and you can create the cards along with the presenters.  You’ll end up with new project ideas and some stunning new cards!

    To make the most of this experience, you can order the Cottage Rose Bundle from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog, the Cottage Wreaths Bundle from the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog, or the Warm Welcome Bundle (which you can get EARLY from the January–June 2023 Mini Catalog beginning September 1)!   The bundles aren’t required to attend the event, but if you’d like to make the projects presented, you’ll want to get the bundles!

    As an added bonus, when you order ANY of the three bundles used for the event, you’ll get a FREE gift of Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels! (Note that even if you order all three bundles, you’ll only receive one Iridescent Pearls gift.) 

    Check out the Product Flyer below for the bundle ordering information (click on DOWNLOAD).  You can still attend this event without ordering the bundles, but it’ll be a lot more fun to craft together if you have one or more of the bundles!

    Qualifying customers can earn Honey Drop points from me as part of my Honeybee Rewards Program. Once you earn 16 Honey Drops you can earn products valued up to $40 from any current catalog from me. Here is how the double points work:

    • Place an order in my online store between August 22 and August 31 to earn double Honey Drops.
    • If you place an order of $25 (before shipping and any applicable tax) you will receive 2 Honey Drop points (instead of just one), for a $50 order you’ll earn 4 points, for a $75 order you’ll earn 6 points, and so on. Normally you would earn only 1 point for every $25 spent.
    • Collect sixteen (16) Honey Drops and you can earn any product or products with a value up to $40 from any current catalog and the item will be mailed directly to you! You’ll receive free shipping, too!
    • Each of your online orders must be for $25 or more for you to be eligible to earn double Honey Drop points (before Shipping and any applicable tax).
    • And, it’s still Sale-A-Bration time so if you place at least a $50 order from me you will earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!
    • Don’t forget to use my current host code, AHPKF7WD, when placing orders. This qualifies you to receive a free thank you gift from me (if your order is over $150 don’t use the host code. You are eligible for Stampin’ Rewards but you’ll still get the free gift from me).
