April Paper Pumpkin: A Sara Thing

Subscribe-Page_PP_Apr2017

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!)

    How sad the refill kits were sold out before we even knew they were available..........sure hope Stampin' Up will produce more, as I would love to order more, along with many other people according to the comments herein. Lovely kit - great job, Sara! Hope you design more PP kits.

    I am new to Paper Pumpkin and had never done anything like watercolouring . Thank you for the easy to understand tutorial and all the tips. I was so pleased with the cards I made and amazed at all the alternatives that others have come up with. You made my experience so satisfying. once again THANK YOU!!!

    Best kit yet! It would be great to have more refill kits available!

    When were refills available...didn't see about refills until this email and then hear they are all sold out! Disappointing. Sara's kit was terrific! May consider not getting Paper Pumpkin in the future if there are craft things to make...interested in cards. Can get crafty items from other sources...especially since each month is a surprise and we don't know what it is until receiving it. In which case I would then rather spend my money as a demonstrator on items in the catalog.

    Let's ask Sara to design another Paper Pumpkin kit down the road. The colors, the designs, the embellishments are all first-class. The type of kit allows for beautiful alternate ideas. The extra dollar for the refill kit is well worth it. Congratulations, Sara, you have designed the best Paper Pumpkin kit I have ever seen!

    I did not know the refill kits were already available. Unfortunately I missed out on it because the refills are sold out. Will you be getting more as I would like to buy at least two refills. Loving this kit and hoping to do more samples.

    Why did I just get an email at 8am April 26, today.. saying the refills for the Sara kit are available to purchase.. but in fact they are already sold out? Why send an email?

    I love this kit. Not sure why the Watercolor Pencils were labeled as the "free gift" when you need them to complete the projects.

  • Krafty Karen
