I'm delighted to say my Paper Pumpkin kit arrived in the mail today! COVID has slowed mail through North Carolina in a major way. The Greensboro distribution center has suffered for months, and this morning's delivery gives me hope that we've turned a corner. My kit took only eight days to arrive from Utah. Hooray!
I'm happy for the fast delivery because I am hosting a FREE, online Facebook Live this Sunday, January 24, to demonstrate how to use the kit to make the standard - and alternate - projects with the contents. That includes the "Little Love Boxes" that were an add-on order to January's subscription. I received those from Stampin' Up! last week, so I've had some time to think a little more about how to use the boxes.
My hope this weekend is that I can encourage everyone to complete and share their card projects. This is such a difficult time in the United States! We have a raging pandemic, political and racial unrest, depression and mental illness, unemployment, and so much more. There has never been a time when reaching out to others is more important!
SPOILER ALERT: If you're a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, and you like to be surprised when you open the box, close this post now! The following pictures show the contents of this month's kit. I'll post again next week after I have completed the kit.
The January 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit is titled Sending Hearts. It's all about sharing love as the new year gets underway!
Each Paper Pumpkin kit comes packed with care in a collectible box. Kits contain a custom stamp set, a Stampin' Up! Ink Spot ink pad to complement the month's kit, paper products, glue dots, and embellishments. Each month's kit is unique.
The Sending Hearts Kit has enough supplies to complete eight beautiful cards - 4 each of 2 designs. These cute cards are sure to lift the spirits of all who receive them. There are stickers, sentiment cut-outs, heart- and star-shaped epoxy dots, black ribbon, and more.
This is the custom stamp set for the Sending Hearts Paper Pumpkin kit. It has nine stamps that can be used to complete the kit - and then for many years to come! The "Love" stamp is a mini version of the full-size stamp included in the January-June 2021 mini-catalog in the Love You Always Suite (pages 10-13). The snail stamp also complements the Snailed It stamp set and bundle (page 55). Finally, the heart appears to match the Many Hearts Dies, found on page 15 of the mini catalog. Way to go, Stampin' Up! for continuing to offer coordinating products in so many ways! Woot!
That's it for today. I hope you can join me on Facebook Live this Sunday, January 24, at 3 pm Eastern Standard Time. I'll be on until about 4:30 p.m. Find me at https://www.facebook.com/karensblueridgestamping!
Until then, may God bless you richly! Thanks for visiting!
