Stampin’ Up! January Paper Pumpkin!

Good Friday, y’all!  Not “Good Friday” like it’s almost Easter, just good Friday!  By the time you read this, I might already be on my way home!

Or…not.  As I write this on Thursday evening, I have no real plans to leap out of my really very very comfortable Mariott bed and hurry to get on the road.  Of course, I almost always think that and then the morning comes and I wake up and just want to get home….guess we’ll see tomorrow how I feel about it this time around!

So – I had big plans that centered around my Paper Pumpkin kit for January.  My orange box arrived a couple of days before I came to Huntsville.  I figured I’d bring it with me and do a little leisurely stamping last night (Wednesday) and then share my prowess with you in this post.

I carefully gathered my box and an acrylic block and took them to the bedroom to add to my suitcase.

Yesterday morning, I got up and – instead of having my coffee and watching some tv – I had my coffee and did my blog post for Thursday.  See where I’m headed?  I’d have the blog post all done – leaving me with no work to accomplish on Wednesday evening.  Plenty of time for my planned leisurely stamping.

What do you think really happened?

Yep.  I’m guessing my orange box – with acrylic block in it – is sitting in my bedroom at home, right next to where my suitcase was sitting.

So…no personally-made-by-Mary January 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.

And – now that I think of it – the pictures probably wouldn’t have come out so bueno – no good light in the room!

But.  I’m going to share what’s in the kit and what it makes.  As well as a quick video.

Which I guess I’ll get to do this weekend! 😉

When you open the box, you’re going to see….(the video shows it all!)

  • 24 tiny treat bags
  • 8 photopolymer stamps – every PP kit includes an exclusive stamp set!
  • 1 Calypso Coral Classic Stampin’ Spot
  • 5 sheets of die-cut banners and hearts
  • 3 sheets striped vellum banners
  • 4 sheets of gold foil heart stickers
  • 24 mini arrows
  • 12 yds of gold thread
  • 75 dimensionals
  • 200 adhesive dots

And here’s what you’ll be able to make!

But – maybe you don’t need 24 Valentine-themed treat bags?!  Well – check out some other ideas!



First up, here’s another way to assemble the bag, in case you need more room for extra love (in the form of chocolate)! You have everything you need to make this inside your kit, except the cute crinkle paper.

Next, add a little tag to your Valentine’s Day gifts.  It’s easy peasy when you use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and a few goodies from your kit.  This one has a sentiment stamped in Bermuda Bay!

Finally, if you need a little more room to write a little sumpin’-sumpin’ to someone you love, try this card.  It’s simple and easy, but looks like a million bucks with a pop of gold from one of the Metallic Foil Doilies.


Okay – ready for the video?  Here ya go!

So there you have it!  Paper Pumpkin really is Creativity in a Box – and this looks to be an especially fun one!  It’s a great way to while away an hour or so and come up with beautiful projects you’ll be proud to give to your friends and family.  And – they’re perfect for taking with you on a business trip!

Of course – you do have to actually pack it! 🙂
