The long days of summer are here, and for some of us that can only mean one thing: more hours to spend crafting! Paper Pumpkin can go anywhere you do, so whether you’re on your way to the beach (or heading to your lounge chair in the backyard!) be sure to bring this kit with you. You’ll feel refreshed just looking at the designed paper with its watermelons, pineapples, lemons, and limes; then there’s the fun of putting together our yummy, summer-themed projects! Check out the how-to’s below.
We’re pretty sure this kit will be the pine-apple of your eye (wink, wink) once you start playing with all of the elements inside! And the creative possibilities are endless. Check out the projects above for some sweet alternate ideas—like our stamped fruit slices tied to Crumb Cake envelopes and secured with White Baker’s Twine. Wouldn’t they make great gift card enclosures?
You could also fussy cut a few pineapple images from the designed paper and pop them up with dimensionals on one of the kit’s die-cut banners. For a perfect finishing touch, embellish with a pink baker’s twine bow.
Or make the Hooray card using Pool Party Cardstock and some of the fun die- and laser-cut pieces included with this month’s kit. With the sunny yellow banner as a focal point, it’s the perfect summer birthday card.
Let's do a kit about something other than food. Thanks
Hi, I was disappointed that the video was not available until today. If the kits get shipped on the 10th, I would expect the video to be ready by then as well.
I love the wonderful projects in each kit and that everything I need isnptovided. Keep up the good work, Stamping Up!
Love the new design of the box and the fact that you have indicated what the kit name is on the side panel.
I loved my kit this mth but my paper was totally upside down . A few were not but for the most part they all were ! All the pineapples were facing down
When I look at your samples mine were def the wrong way.
I would prefer elegant cards. Not interested in all the "cute" stuff SU is doing with paper pumpkin. Since I have no use for most kits, will probably drop subscription next year.
Since everyone's taste is different, I can't imagine satisfying everyone all the time. I think you do a great job coming up with different kits. If one month is not my cup of tea , well I give it to a friend who I know would like it as a thank you for their kindness or someone who is shut in and would enjoy making fun or beautiful objects. So all in all, they all can be used or shared in one way or another. Thanks for all your imaginations for the kits !
My first kit. To say I was disappointed is the understatement of the year. I believed StampinUp up was better than that. I have never made six of anything let alone cards. Cheap material. Poor instructions. I am comparing to Annie's Attic card kits, which I will probably go back to if your July shipment is the same makeup as June.
The June P.P. kit is cute and fun! I'll definitely use it!
Pinterest link for June 2017 link is not working, it brings up May with the donuts. FYI
Would love to get some paper pumkin kits that are more elegantly designed. The majority seem like they are out of date and cheep feeling on the color combinations. Sarah's kit was so inspiring. After the stupid candle kit, you just about lost me. It seems like your heading back to cheep and ugly ideas. I have been with PP since 2014 but I am not going to keep paying for something that I like only 3 out of 12 each year. Please address the issue.
I prefer the Paper Pumpkins be card kits and not note cards. Really don't have much use for Note Cards. I have to cut in half and place on top of a regular size card. You seem to really be pushing note cards lately.
So very happy you put the instructions on emails. I had a difficult time seeing your paper instructions and would get frustrated . Anyhow I love having these instructions, and it looks so much easier. Thank you!
Love the paper and the concept of the melons, but there are too many of use older people who need cards, etc. We do not have family, children, etc to give gift bags to. PP is trending too much in this direction. That is why several of my customers have dropped PP in the past year.
