Story of Elegance

Hello and Welcome!

When technology works its a great thing, but when it doesn’t boy oh boy what a headache.  Well, this time technology failure turns out to be a great thing.  Especially if you meant to or attempted to purchase the August Paper Pumpkin kit.

Because of system errors last month, you can still purchase the full August Paper Pumpkin kit entitled Hope Box until midnight MST today.  It’s true!

This is a lovely all-inclusive kit that comes with everything you need to create 9 beautiful cards ( 3 each of 3 designs)  and also a specially decorated box.   Each kit has all the materials you need to craft these beauties – card stock, decorative card bases and panels,  decorated envelopes, Blackberry Bliss ink spot, cut-outs, adhesive-backed sequins, adhesive glue dots, ribbon, Dimensionals and assembly instructions .  Everything you need is in there!

August 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit Contents


I haven’t decorated my box yet, but here are the cards that you can make as designed for the kit.

Paper Pumpkin kits are perfect when you need cards quickly and don’t have a lot of time to craft, but they are also great when you have a little more time to spend.  I used some of the kit contents to create two alternate cards adding a few items from my own inventory.  In this instance  I added Basic White and Blackberry Bliss card stock and the Tasteful Textile embossing folder.  Everything else came in the kit.

At $19.00 plus tax and shipping, Paper Pumpkin Kits also make great gifts for your crafty or not-so-crafty friends and family.  Order a couple as gifts.   And you can also get a freebie if you take advantage of SALE-a-bration (see below.)  Talk about win-win!  Yes!
