Finding life balance can be pretty tricky these days, and it’s all too easy to forget what matters most — like sharing your love with friends and family.  Our Blissful Blooms August 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit, with its drenched-in-watercolor cards (the original was handpainted), gorgeous lined envelopes, and silver foil trim — plus tags you can hand stamp yourself, add that extra bit of love and thoughtfulness to a note directly from you.  (Who creates and handwrites cards anymore?  You do!  Your friends are going to think you’re from another planet or something!  But they’ll like it!

August Paper Pumpkin 1 - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

I got my August Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up! in the mail yesterday and I dug right in!  I love this kit!  Such a beautiful array of colors in floral patterns!  The kit contained all of the materials needed to make 10 (yes ten!!) full-size A2 cards with silver edged envelopes!

The kit also had an exclusive Blissful Blooms stamp set and a Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Spot.  I know I’ll be using this set again, and Blackberry Bliss is one of my faves! Can you tell I’ve already given mine some use? I love the beautiful Sympathy sentiment – I will use this a ton!


The first card has pretty green and white vellum leaves and some pretty silver and pink baker’s twine. Look at the detailing!
