Paper Pumpkin Subscriber Party

 

paper pumpkin party

To thank all my Paper Pumpkin Subscribers, I’m having a Paper Pumpkin Party! Free! That’s right, free to all who subscribe to PP (with me as your demonstrator)!

Who: anyone who is a current subscriber or becomes a subscriber by midnight on 3/31

What: Snacks, crafting, card making, I will have a thank you gift for all of you.

When: Thursday April 17th from 6:30-9:30 pm.

Where: my house, up in the craft room

Why: because I set a goal to find two new subscribers by the end of the month (I’m trying to earn a free stamp set).

Want to come? It’s not too late to get in on the fun! Subscribe by midnight March 31st, while Stampin’ Up is running the current promotion and new Paper Pumpkin subscribers will also receive 5 Stampin’ Write Markers (a $14.95 value) absolutely free if you subscribe by March 31, 2014. The colors included in this set of markers are Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, and Primrose Petals.

What makes Paper Pumpkin better than other monthly craft subscription boxes:

  • Paper Pumpkin is affordable. Each monthly kit is just $19.95, and the price includes shipping. I have seen monthly craft kits run $30-$40 plus shipping.
  • Paper Pumpkin includes exclusive Stampin’ Up stamps that can’t be purchased anywhere else.
  • Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin kits include easy to follow step by step instructions. If you aren’t feeling very creative, you can make the projects as shown.
  • The kits are versatile. If you are more creative, it is so easy to use the fun supplies to make other projects.
  • You can skip a month if you need to. There aren’t many monthly subscription boxes out there that let you opt out of a month.
  • Cancel at any time – without any hassle or having to jump through hoops. Unlike other monthly craft boxes that lock you into a 3 or 6 month agreement, with Paper Pumpkin there is no risk. You can stop your subscription at any time if you decide it’s not for you.
  • Only Paper Pumpkin subscribers can purchase past kits and refill kits. Stampin’ Up! made the decision to only offer these to PP subscribers. I’m so thrilled about that!
  • You will receive additional ideas, inspiration and bi-monthly get togethers for as long as you remain a subscriber. Just a way I want to say thanks to all who give it a try!

Paper Pumpkin will send you everything you need—stamps, ink, paper, and accessories—to create fun new projects every month. Each month is a different project and a complete surprise! And we’ve got an amazing Paper Pumpkin promotion going on right now: If you sign up for a new Paper Pumpkin membership by February 10, 2014, you’ll receive a FREE set of 2012–2014 In Color Stampin’ Write markers in your Welcome Kit—a $14.95 value! Can Paper Pumpkin get any sweeter? yes… read on!

As an added incentive from ME… (because Stampin’ Up! is offering a reward to all demonstrators who sign up new customers by January 25th) I am offering a contest to earn a free $25 gift certificate from me (can be used on classes or retired items from my table at our Retired Craft Sale on February 9th) for ANYONE who signs up to be a new Paper Pumpkin subscriber by January 25th. (that’s right- if I have 5 new subscribers by this Saturday- that’s over the next 6 days- all new subscribers will be given a $25 gift card from me- for my classes and retired items sale only). (That’s how much I want to win our SU reward!!)

Are you ready to give it a try? Here’s the link: My Paper Pumpkin

Be sure to type in my name Lynn Streifert, otherwise I won’t get credit for your subscription, and you won’t be entered into my contests.

I am ALSO going to have a drawing on February 11th and issue another $25 gift certificate for one lucky winner who is a paper pumpkin subscriber of mine. (Even current subscribers will be entered into this contest). I will contact winners and will post here on my blog as well. This gift certificate will  be a little different- it can be used on any of my classes, events, retired items sale, and/or new products from any catalog. Won’t you please help me out? consider a paper pumpkin subscription… it is a lot of fun to do with the kids, or to give as a gift. Do you have a parent or grandparent that lives far away? or you don’t get to see them very often? give the gift of a paper pumpkin subscription and show them the love!

Any questions?? Please contact me (I know I changed up my contest a little bit- because I am so motivated to win a Stampin’ Up! grab bag). I’m looking for at least 6 new friends to subscribe. Hope you can help me out. THANKS!

Have a wonderful day. thanks for taking the time to read my blog, hope you have an awesome Sunday!
