October's Paper Pumpkin kit arrived last week, and I put mine together while dog-sitting for my grand-dogs over the weekend. While it's been common knowledge that the October and November kits would coordinate this year, it's always a surprise to see what exactly is in each. And this month's kit certainly did not disappoint! Not only were there supplies to make 10 (that's 10, not 8, but TEN) shaker cards, but as usual with the Paper Pumpkin kits, I still have extra supplies, a stamp set and an ink spot left over to use on future projects.
But here's a really cool part. THIS month, instead of selling kit refills in the online store, Stampin' Up! will be offering these kits in their entirety (meaning including stamps + ink), BUT only while supplies last. (Which I would be very surprised to be very long.) But here's the rub:
Paper Pumpkin kits and/or refills available in the store are only available for purchase by Paper Pumpkin subscribers.
Uh, oh! Not a subscriber yet? (Or *still*, or whatever....?) Well, that's simple enough to fix: simply go to PaperPumpkin.YourPaperDreams.com and get signed up. Now! Quickly! So that you'll be ready to jump in right away and get your October kit just as soon as it becomes available..... about 1 pm or so (Pacific time) this afternoon. It'll show up in the Paper Pumpkin section of my store (but only while supplies last, remember).
And then the next piece of good news is that by being a subscriber, you'll automatically get the coordinating November kit in your mailbox, too!
So here's the quick and dirty review about how to get your October kit:
- Subscribe to Paper Pumpkin here - right now. (You might want to consider setting your monthly kit order to a number larger than 1 - at least at this time of year so you can have plenty of these projects on hand.)
- Sign OUT of your Paper Pumpkin account. (Don't just "x" out; you'll need to actually log out so you'll be able to sign into the online store soon thereafter.)
- Go here to order as many kits as you want from my online store (beginning at 1 pm Pacific time, but only while supplies last). And I'd be appreciative if you would apply my current host code, found here on my YourPaperDreams.com website.
- Enjoy putting together your 10 shaker cards when your order arrives, and then look forward to your NEXT (coordinating) kit to arrive automatically around mid-November. We don't know yet what the project will be, but we do know it'll coordinate with these cards, altho it won't be cards. Perhaps treat boxes? Packaging/wrapping of some kind? Tags? All of the above? Who knows?!?!???
I can't wait to find out! Can you?!???
