Paper Pumpkin July 2013

Rating: Not For Me!
Cost: $19.95/month

Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up is a monthly craft subscription that sends supplies to make a paper project in approximately 30 min. I really like Stampin' Up products and was introduced to them by a friend! They are great for scrapbooking or making cards (which I love to do). Paper Pumpkin was started a few month ago and I've been a subscriber since the beginning. I haven't been super thrilled about what I've received in the monthly kits, but I wanted to give them a fair trial (hoping it would get better). Usually you get supplies to make 4 greeting cards, but there have been a couple projects also.

This month was a project and the picture of what you make is below. You make Party Pennants, which would have been cute for my daughter's birthday last month. (a bit late)

You get enough supplies to make 2 pennants with 2 designs each. Below is a picture of all the supplies included. By using what is provided there is not a lot of customization you can do, since the words and letters are already printed. The sample ink colors included were Pool Party (which I love and already own) and Summer Starfruit. The tiny clothes pins included are probably my favorite thing in the box. Totally adorable!!!

The stamps included are to be used for the backgrounds. There are dots, stripes, and honeycomb. I'm a fan of the honeycomb, so I'll probably use this for other projects! I already own dots and stripes, but I'm sure I'll find a use for these smaller versions.

I've decided to cancel Paper Pumpkin because I feel the value of the box is just not there. I like Stampin' Up products and will continue to purchase them, but would prefer to pick them out on my own. Plus there are so many other great subscription boxes I need to try, that this no longer fits in my budget!
