Okay – now let’s take a look at some Paper Pumpkin haps!

First off – a quick look at the cool From the Heart Kit – which was the September kit – and included treat bags and beautiful note cards!

As always – the box held everything I needed to assemble the kit – including Tear & Tape Adhesive!

The exclusive stamp set is really pretty – and I used it to decorate the projects AND add some fun on the insides of the note cards, too!

I made all the treat bags with Thank You sentiments – and I added little velcro dots (from Amazon!) under the flap so I’d be able to close them after putting something yummy inside!

And all the notecards are the same design – starting with some Lost Lagoon stamping on the colored fronts.

I stamped the inside of the cards in Lost Lagoon and then pulled out my Copper Clay and Pebbled Path stamp pads and used them to stamp a sweet pumpkin (part of the included stamp set!) on the insides of the notecards in stamped-off-once inks.

Then I added a little fun to the front of the envelopes, too.  The inside of the flaps are already decorated for you!

If you haven’t assembled your kit yet – here’s a quick video from Stampin’ UP! so you can see how it goes together!

And – there’s already refills for this one in the Online Store – so if you need more treat bags…!

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 gorgeous the September kit was – let’s take a look at what’s in store for October.  You’ve got a few days to get signed up (if you aren’t already!) so that the beautiful Home for the Holidays kit arrives in your mailbox in September!
