So in Love with Paper Pumpkin

InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! Today’s So In Love Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share ideas for Valentine’s Day or new products we love. We are excited to share what we’ve made and hope you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members in this hop. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Paper Pumpkin January 2016

One thing I love is the monthly surprise I get from Paper Pumpkin; the subscription-based project kit from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin

Each month you get a stamp set, ink pad and a fun project project to put together. This month’s kit included these fun hearts that you can use to make sweet Valentine’s Day treat bags and a banner. (See the video below.)

Now there is one sad truth. You will not get this kit if you subscribe today, but that’s the point. Stop missing out! Subscribe today and don’t miss another kit again. I’ll keep showing you what you’re missing until you do. PLUS if you purchase a 3-Month Prepaid Subscription, you’ll get a discount AND be eligible for a FREE Sale-a-Bration item! What’s better than that?

If you are a subscriber, I’ll also show you an alternative idea that you can make with the kit. Here’s a card I made using the elements in this month’s kit:

Cute right?
