Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin News and….a little Blog Candy! :)

Morning, y’all!  Hope your week is successfully winding down!  Mine is.  I mean…I think it is?  I am really having trouble keeping track of the days.  I keep thinking it’s the weekend – and being really surprised when there’s a lot of traffic on the road at 4 in the afternoon.  I’m actually kind of surprised at how disorienting NOT working is – guess I figured that, since I worked at home for so many years…it would feel the the same.  It’s totally not! 😉

So – the topic for today is Paper Pumpkin – and…Blog Candy!  Will that be okay?

I got my Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin and then I bought the cool Add-on, too.  And I saw so many folks talking about how wonderful it is!  So…I went to open it up and put it all together.  And then…I thought…why don’t you save it – and give it away?? 🙂

That seemed like a really splendid idea – so…that’s what I’m doing!

I’m giving away a Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin…check it out right here in the Unboxing Video…

…and an add-on bundle (so the winner can make cards, too!).

But – before we get to the How-Can-I-Win-This-Awesome-Candy part of the program – let’s take a little look at what’s coming in September from Paper Pumpkin!  It’s a “hand”-made Halloween Kit that is going to be a chillingly good time!

Image may contain: text

This one will let you whip up 20 Halloween-themed, food safe-treat boxes – in Basic Black, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White!  Sounds pretty fun to me!  And – who knows?  Maybe there’ll even be an add-on bundle like this month!  Fingers crossed! 🙂

Here’s what you need to do to get the September Kit.

Get.  Signed.  Up.  By 10 Sept!  Easy peasy.

You can sign up for a subscription where you’re billed monthly for your kit – click here to get started.

So – here’s the thing.  You MUST be an ACTIVE Paper Pumpkin Subscriber by 10 September to get this kit!!  If you subscribe AFTER 10 September – you are going to get the October kit!  Make sense? 🙂

Okay – I expect to see y’all signing up right away – cuz that looks like a fun one for Halloween!!

  9. Debbie Lindauer

  10. Mary Laffin

    Wow, you want us to pick 1 favorite bundle but we saw your haul on your facebook live on Saturday and it’s clear you couldn’t pick just one! I’m pretty sure I need them all so instead of my favorite I’m going with the first on my wish list–Still Scenes Bundle. Not only is it beautiful but unique and very versatile.

    Now quit worrying about what day it is–you will come to love the fact that you don’t know, don’t need to know and just don’t care! lol

    • stampsnlingers

  13. Kathy Beemer

    My favorite bundle (today) is Bird Ballad and I’d play with the puppy!!!

    • stampsnlingers

      LOL! So do we all, Kathy – he pretty much rules the roost! Thanks – and good luck in the draw! 🙂

  14. Linda Schilling

    My favorite bundle in the holiday catalog is a tie between Snowman Season, Cup of Christmas, and Harvest Hellos…but Spooktacular Bash and Tags Tags Tags are a close second!! Guess I kinda like several things

    • stampsnlingers

      LOL! Me, too, Linda! Thanks much – and good luck in the draw! 🙂

  15. Arlene Lacy

    Perfectly Plaid Bundle is my fav in the holiday catty. I love your cards. I have been secretly watching for quite some time. Thanks for sharing your creations.

      Thanks, Arlene – it’s a fave for me, too! Thanks for watching!! 🙂

  16. Kathy Fennell

    Hey Mary! My favorite, well that’s a hard one because I like them all. Let’s be honest SU did an awesome job with this holiday catalog. Oh yes almost forgot Mr. Finn is trying to get your attention Mom! 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep- cuz he’d NEVER get any attention otherwise! 😉 Thanks, Kathy! 🙂

  17. Val P

    Love the Perfectly Plaid bundle and that adorable Christmas tree made a really cute card with them!.

  18. Angie

    Well, to choose just one is a toughie!!! But . . . I’ve never had a moose stamp or punch, so I think my fav is Merry Moose!

  19. Phyllis Werner

    I think my favorite is snowman season. An adorable snowman and a punch. Can be used all winter long. Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy.

    • stampsnlingers

      It really is cute – and very Versatile! 🙂 Thanks, Phyllis! 🙂

  20. Marilyn Wedler

    Hi Mary
    My favorite bundle has to be Still Scenes bundle as I love snow globes. But very close seconds are Perfectly Plaid and Merry Moose. Love your retirement comments as I am retiring in just a few days!

    • stampsnlingers

      Well – congratulations! Well earned and deserved, I am sure! Enjoy it, Mariylyn!! Thank you! 🙂

  21. TODAY… my favorite bundle is Peaceful Boughs. Thank you for this chance to win! Love seeing that sweet “Finn” face! I am glad he is so loved by you! Their time with us is all too short. Our precious Golden moved onto the “Rainbow Bridge”…last night.

    • stampsnlingers

      Oh Barb – I am SO SO sorry. What a devastating thing for you and your family. I know he was well loved – and knew it every day! 🙁

  22. Paula Poindexter

    Toile Christmas is my favorite!
    Anything Cardinal gets my vote!

    This is an awesome blog candy Mary!

  23. Tammy Chernow

    I am a new follower and I look forward to your emails every morning! They make me laugh and inspire me to want to craft craft craft!!!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thank you so much, Tammy! I appreciate you telling me that! 🙂

  24. Jean Goerlach

    You want us to pick just One!!! Impossible but I’ve narrowed it down to 2. I love the the Snowman Season and the Still Scenes. Oh and I can’t forget the Perfectly Plaid set. Oh and then there is the Free Skate Stamp set. AND. … oh I can’t pick just ONE!!!

    • stampsnlingers

      ROLF!! I sure do get that, Jean! Thank you for trying! 🙂

  25. Jane Keller

    I really like the Come to Gather Suite! I live in Southern California and the only Fall we really get is from what I can decorate. Second choice is the First Frost Suite for the same reason. I can remember Fall and the first frost from living in the Midwest and the South.

    • stampsnlingers

      Glad we can bring a little Fall to SoCal for you! Thanks, Jane! 🙂

  26. Lila Shiffner

    Hi Mary, I love the Peaceful Boughs Bundle but at Christmas the cardinals (Toile Christmas Bundle) are so beautiful. I will have to take the cardinal and sit him in the boughs.

    • stampsnlingers

      What a wonderful design idea with those two sets, Lila! Thanks! 🙂

  27. Dayle S.

    My favorite bundle in the holiday catalog is the entire Feels Like Frost Suite. Love that dsp! Wow!

  28. Sandi Warthen

    Hi Mary, my favorite bundle? Well, the Toile Christmas has gorgeous papers and I really love that cardinal, but then the SO Many Stars bundle is lovely too. Then there is Cup of Christmas—Heck, I can’t decide. I will tell you that my very favorite stamp in the whole catalog is the Nature’s Beauty on the back page.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – that’s a gorgeous stamp set, for sure! Thanks, Sandi! 🙂

  29. Kristine Sowards

    Hi, my favorite bundle in the holiday catalog is the Perfectly Plaid. It was a hard choice to just pick one!

    • stampsnlingers

      That’s one of my fave’s, too – and yes- picking just ONE is darned near impossible! Thanks, Kristine!:)

  30. Yvonne Whittle

    Loving the Ride With Me bundle. Makes a fun card for anyone.

  31. LG1932

    I love the Frost Suite. Thank you for arranging a giveaway.

    I can’t wait to see the catalog.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks, Lora – that one seems to be a heavy favorite!! 🙂

  32. Darryl

    Hi there Mary! You’re such a creative and generous Demonstrator. Sailing away is one of my favorite bundles, it offers so many possibilities for card making.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks, Darryl – appreciate the kind words! And yes – that’s a heavy favorite!! 🙂

  33. Mary Caruso

    From one Mary to another….my favorite bundle from the Christmas Catalog would have to be the perfectly plaid bundle. I love, love, LOVE, plaid. (This probably comes from having to wear so much of it in parochial school 🤣) I wish SU let you buy just the stamp set from the PP because Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the berry branch stamp—-so much I could do with that. But, I can’t wait for my Christmas Share!!!!

    • stampsnlingers

      I love plaid, too, Mary – and I didn’t even go to a parochial school! 🙂 Thanks so much! 🙂

  34. Cyndie Soquet

    My favorite bundle is Spooktacular Bash. I love Halloween and every year make bags of goodies to hand out to the kiddies. It’s a perfect set for the bags. Love it!!! Thanks for a chance to win.

  35. Peggy Hendricks

    Thanks for this opportunity! I have such a sweet tooth for blog candy!! I think my favorite suite from the catty is A Wish for Everything. So useful and versatile. it was my first pick.

    • stampsnlingers

      Well – this is a SWEET one, for sure! Thanks much, Peggy! 🙂

  36. Lynn C.

    I really really like the Frosted Foliage bundle, and in particular the Frosted Frames Dies and the DSP. Just awesome

  37. Stephanie P

    I love the Perfectly Plaid Bundle! SO many cute ideas!

  38. Karen L

    Wow, SU did a great job on the Holiday Catalog…..hard to choose just one. But, I think I will go with “Come Together” bundle. It is just great for the fall & pumpkin season. Thanks for a chance to try Paper Pumpkin…..haven’t pulled the trigger on that adventure…..yet! Love the antics of Finn & all the great ideas you present on your blog.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – they really did. I have a favorite (or three!) on every darned page! Thank goodness for that discount! Thanks! 🙂

  39. Karen A.

    Without a doubt. I love the Toile Christmas bundle.
    I love the Cardinal and paper. It’s on the top of my wish list!

  40. I don’t remember being so interested in so many of the designs from other years, but his year it’s hard to narrow down. I think I’m going with Christmas Gleaming.

    • stampsnlingers

      I know – it’s a crazy good catalog with something (or FIVE somethings!) to love on pretty much every page! Thanks!

  41. Beverly A

    I love, love, love the Still Scenes bundle. It puts a smile on my f.ace.

    • stampsnlingers

      It’s sure pretty, isn’t it? Thanks, Beverly! 🙂
