December Paper Pumpkin Another Great Year

Surprise! We’re posting a week earlier than our usual schedule because we have a secret and we couldn’t wait any longer to tell you. We’re breaking all the rules! For the first time ever, we’re releasing the FULL “past” kit early, instead of the typical three months later. The December 2016 Another Great Year Kit is available right NOW, while supplies last.


Exciting, right? That’s not all! You’ll notice that this kit is a little bit different. Also for the first time ever, it includes a rotary stamp and a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker instead of the traditional photopolymer stamp set and Stampin’ Spot. We want you to have a complete memory keeping experience with this kit and hope you enjoy a fun change this month. Use the brush end of the marker to ink your stamp and the fine-tip to write and journal. To see the kit in action, check out the video on our YouTube channel.


This month’s kit includes everything you need to make a ring-bound memory book—just add your pictures and journaling. With the full kit available now, you can make 2017 another great year too! Imagine the possibilities. Make a scrapbook for each of your kids, pets, parents, grandparents, friends, or siblings. Go back and document a favorite vacation. Give it as a gift to your mom or dad with the top 12 things you love about them. Turn it into a baby or wedding shower gift to capture the first year. Or, create a home décor piece.

There are so many wonderful things you can create with this kit. Here are a few more ideas to get you started. It’s easy enough to turn this kit into cards. Simply use the patterned paper, window sheets, the stickers, washi tape, and a little creativity to create a cute card like this one. Add a little stamping with the fun phrases from the rotary stamp for a finishing touch.


This next sample would be great for Valentine’s Day, a birthday celebration, or just everyday décor. It’s a beautiful banner created with a few of the patterned papers and window sheets. Customize it with a mix of embellishments, add some Whisper White Baker’s Twine, and you’re all set.


And finally, if you fancy traditional scrapbooking, be sure to put the rotary stamp to good use. With phrases like, “highlights, love, hello, today, remember, and the good life,” you’ll have lots of places to start your personal journaling. The stamp also includes several images, the date, and numbers.


Whatever you decide to do with your kit (and all the extra kits you’ll want to purchase), we hope 2016 was full of wonderful memories and that 2017 is another great year!

    I was so excited to see the marker in the kit! I had actually submitted that as a suggestion more than one time. I hope this receives good feedback and is something that will be in future kits.

    I am not a scrapbook type of person. So, this was not my favorite kit, but to make lemonade out of lemons - I am giving it to a friend who will love it. So, she will be surprised at having a fun present she was not expecting as well!

    What are the dimensions of the finished book? Could you use it with a project life book?
