A touch of spring in December?

Winter has been so mild this year with lots of rain and very mild temperatures. I know it won’t last but for now, I will enjoy it since I am not a “winter person”. I cannot help but think spring flowers are just around the corner.

So when my December Paper Pumpkin kit arrived I was thrilled as always. I love receiving these kits because you never know what you will receive and surprises are always fun. The one thing I do know is that everything I need will be included when I receive my monthly kit so there is never any disappointment with missing supplies.

This lovely kit included all the supplies needed to make up 3 cards each of 3 different designs for a total of 9 cards. As an added bonus, there was a clear acetate box included which is big enough to hold all nine cards and coordinating envelopes. The gold foil accents throughout add a little added bling.

So these are the three designs the kit came with. I love how unique each card is.

The adorable envelopes are pre-stamped and they just scream spring to me, even if it is December. I usually just make one of each design then use the rest to make alternative cards but this time, I made them all up just as they are. However, I did stamp different sentiments on each card just so I could create a gift box of “all occasion” cards

Once I completed my cards I inserted them into the acetate window box.

The wrap around band fits perfectly (also included) and will make a perfect gift for someone who may not get out and about too often.

Add a few stamps and this makes a lovely gift.

Paper Pumpkin subscription kits are designed for anyone who wants to quickly and easily create beautiful, hand crafted projects.  They make perfect gifts since it is all packaged up in its own box PLUS they are perfect to take with you when you are travelling so you can craft on the go without packing up a lot of supplies. Each kit comes with everything you need to complete the monthly project.  You will also receive an ink spot and an exclusive stamp set that you can use over and over again.

Purchase the coordinating “The Love of Spring” Add-on dies will coordinate with the next three months (Jan-Mar) Kits for even more crafting possibilities.

While each kit is a surprise, there are always clues available and the next three months are no different.
