Hope Box – August’s Paper Pumpkin

Today I’m sharing a little bit about August’s Paper Pumpkin kit – what’s included and what to expect. I love that Stampin’ Up! gives us a sneak peek at the kits (we don’t see the entire thing, but see enough about the themes gauge our level of excitement). Love!

This month’s Paper Pumpkin kit includes the supplies to create nine cards of encouragements with coordinating envelopes. The kit was designed with Shelli Gardner, co-founder of Stampin’ Up!, to remind us why life is so precious. Here’s a sneak peek at the theme of August’s Kit:

Before I share a little bit more about this super-sweet kit, I want to give you a quick overview of the subscription kit and what you can expect when you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me. ♥

    Pumpkin in the Fungeon

    I host a fun perk for my customers who subscribe to Paper Pumpkin through me. I’m calling this monthly event with subscribing customers Pumpkin in the Fungeon. Each month, I host a monthly Zoom call with my subscribing customers who want to put together the kit with me or just hang out and chat for the hour. I also share some exclusive alternative ideas I’ve made with the kit. I schedule the calls for the last Saturday of each month – I hope to share this new adventure with you, too. The calls have been really fun, and I’d love for you join us!

    Pumpkin in the Fungeon, Brian King“Brian, I get the ‘Pumpkin’ part, but what’s a ‘Fungeon’?” The Fungeon is the name I’ve given my craft room (the basement in my house that’s short on windows but full of fun). It’s where all my stamps are and where I create nearly everything I share with you. It also happens to be where I’ve been working my career job every day since March of last year.
