Paper Pumpkin



So here's the nitty gritty:
  • Each month they'll send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, d├ęcor, and more! (They've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you and your customer a 30-minute creativity escape.
  • Stampin' Up! will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on May 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, they'll send your first kit around June 15th.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!) The commissionable amount is $14.95 for each Paper Pumpkin.
  • There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
  • Starting in early March, we'll offer a Try-It kit if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month.
It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program starting Monday, January 14 by visiting and click Get it. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!

Sara Douglas and Me

This is Sara Douglas, she is Shelli Gardner' daughter, she is the sweetest person ever, very approachable and of course I had to ask her for a picture, so happy she said yes and what company do you know where you can actually interact with these wonderful people. I think that she is doing an awesome job being so involved in Stampin' up! and she has some cool projects too. Here we were helping make bags of donated Stampin' Up! products that will go to some of the teachers in FL who can use these products with their students and in their classrooms. Once again Stampin' Up! making a difference, I am happy to be part of this company. 

Ramping up Your Social Media Presence - Andrea Withers at Leadership 2013

Ramping Up your Social Media Presence - this class was presented by Andrea Withers who had, Diane Dimich, Catherine Pooler and Becky Roberts. This class touched on startegies for using social media and mobile technologies to find new customers, draw attention to your Stampin' Up! business and staying in touch with current customers. I learned a lot in this class, especially things that pertained to Facebook. And what was good about the class was that it was real people with real experiences, things that they have tried out and it has been good for them. So glad I attended Leadership.

Meet New People, Find New Faces - Shannon West at Leadership 2013

Meet New People, Find New Faces with Shannon West at Leadership 2013

This class was very informative. Shannon gave us 10 proven ways to generate leads. She also touched on how to build your customer base and increase profitability. I liked the fact that Stampin' Up! recognizes that finding new customers can be a challenge but with these 10 tips, it should be easier. And I must say Shannon taught this class very well. I am so motivated to apply these tools to my business because my resolution is to make it this year.

Creating a Blueprint for Success - Brandi Barnard at Leadership 2013

Creating a Blueprint for Success with Brandi Barnard at Leadership 2013

This class was one of my favorites, Brandi & Meg Daves showed us how to make our business profitable and successful. Until I took this class I didnt know that I was spending more money than I was making when it came to my classes and groups. They provided us with a spreadsheet where you can calculate how much you are profiting, that was especially helpful. This class was very beneficial.
