Stampin’ Up! July 2023 Fun in the Sun Paper Pumpkin Kit and a Peek at the August Kit!

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  You know what today is?  It’s 5 Days before Bonus Days ENDS! That’s right – just five more days to EARN those Bonus Days Coupons that you’re going to be SPENDING in August!  I hate to see folks miss out on free money, don’t you?? 😳

Oh – and this is ALSO the day I (and all active SU! Demonstrators!) get to see the new Sept – Dec 2023 Mini Catalog.

Whoo-hoo!  If you wish that YOU could see it, too…then…let me know.  Cuz…I can make that happen.  AND – that would put you in perfect position to join me for the PRE-ORDER on 2 August!!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!

Now – this is a LITTLE early for my monthly Paper Pumpkin post but…I wanted to share the July 2023 Fun in the Sun kit with you cuz it’s SO fun! Oh – AND – because there are REFILLS available now and I want you to have a chance pick up a couple!  Also?  Subscriptions can get you a couple of those Bonus Days coupons.  See how I brought that full-circle??

I opened up the July box with great anticipation – cuz….I LOVE fun folds.  And – I love beachy themed things.  So…two perfect things in one box.  I was NOT disappointed! 😎

There was everything I needed to put together nine uber-cool fun folds – they’re like easel-side-step cards – and…wow.  Are they cute!

When I opened up the kit – I found (as always!) – a fun stamp set and a Daffodil Delight ink spot.  The sentiments are so cute – don’t you just love punny sentiments??

And there was everything else I needed, too!

There are three designs in the kit – and I have a fave.  Can you guess which one I love the most??

If you guessed this one, then…you know me well! 🙂 I just love that sunset and the palms – both the colored ones in the foreground AND the silhouettes on the horizon.   Makes me long for Maui!

The second design is just flat fun!  See the little shades and flip-flops? I feel certain there’s some reef-safe sunscreen around there somewhere!


The final design showcases surfing.  And crabs.  So cute!

I know.  Too.  Much.  Fun!  I love the pre-printed card bases – all with cloud-shaped backdrops – and…the DECORATED envelopes! #nonekkidenvelopes! 😎😎😎

Like videos?  Here’s a quick one from Stampin’ UP! so you can see how it goes together!

If you’d like to buy a refill (remember the refills do NOT have the stamp set in them!)  – as I mentioned at the start – then you can get one from my Online Store!

Now – you DO have to be a Paper Pumpkin subscriber to buy the refill – but that’s too easy!  You can get signed up right here!

So you’ve seen how awesome the July kit was – let’s take a look at what’s in store for August.  You still have a minute to get signed up (if you aren’t already!) so that this beautiful Meaningful Flowers kit arrives in your mailbox in August!

Discover messages of friendship and loyalty in the flowers from the August Paper Pumpkin Kit! This kit includes 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs, and 8 coordinating envelopes. The kit is special because of the way it uses the meaning of flowers. On each card, you’ll find a small inscription of what the flowers represent. As you craft with the included vellum and watercolor paper pieces, you’ll know you’re sending a message of encouragement and friendship to your recipients.

And don’t wait, because everyone who subscribes to this month’s kit will get a SECOND, FREE stamp set! This DistINKtive stamp set is perfect for a variety of occasions!

What you’ll find in the box:

– 8 cards; 4 each of 2 designs
– 8 coordinating envelopes

Just a note – you have to be signed up for Paper Pumpkin by 10 August in order to get THIS kit!  Sign up on the 11th ….and you’ll get the September kit.  Which is probably awesome – but…it’s not THIS one!

  1. That’s such a cute kit! The fun summer images and the designs are perfect! Yeah, I can see that Mr Moose is a sneaky guy…glad that he stayed put. 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      He had little choice – given the ginormous hand squishing him into the floor! LOL!

  2. Kate

    Maybe cuz he can’t afford to lose any more stuffin’?

    • stampsnlingers

      That’s not NOT true! He’s a little…less fluffy than he used to be, for sure! 🙂
