Planning with Stampin’ Up!





I recently jumped on the planner wagon. I got The Happy Planner for my birthday and I love it! It got me thinking of Stampin’ Up! and what products I could use in my planner. Down below you will find a list of things that I thought would be suitable for that. What about you? Have you used Stampin’ Up! when your planning? The products I chose were from both our annual catalog as well as our holiday catalog.  I also wanted to mention that I personally think that all our ribbons would be a good fit. Because we have a good variety and there is quite a few I didn’t list them but you can find them in both of our catalogs. You also can’t forget the Project Life items we have and the cards that can be used in your planning.  We also have 6x6 paper pads that would be a good investment to your planner and your creativity.  I just did a quick glance in my listing but I wanted to also mention our punches would be good to use and you can make your own stickers. Also if you used our regular designer series paper you could cut it down to the size that your wanting. I hope that the list I shared with you get’s your creative juices flowing and thinking outside of the box when it comes to Stampin’ Up! Thank you for stopping by!

Stamp Out Breast Cancer!

I HATE cancer of any kind. Especially so when I lost my mother to Pancreatic cancer on April 15, 2011. So I love the fact that Stampin' Up! has joined with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to show their support to stop this awful disease. If you are already subscribed to Paper Pumpkin  Stampin' Up! will donate on your behalf or if you become a new subscriber by October 10th. Here's the details from the website in case I wasn't clear in my own statements. I am not sure if the links will work or not. If they do not please contact me and I will be happy to help. Thank you for considering in supporting this worthy cause and you will get a fun project in your mail each month!
To show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we're going PINK . . . or at least our October boxes are! And because we know our subscribers want to share the love too, we will be making a donation on their behalf to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Stampin' Up! will donate
  • $1 for every active Paper Pumpkin subscriber.
  • Plus, an additional $1 for every new subscriber.
Together, we will make a difference!
Here's how you can help: 
  1. Subscribe! If you're new to Paper Pumpkin, click here to get started. Your first kit will arrive in a limited-edition pink box that you'll want to hold onto forever-and we'll donate $2 because you're new!
  2. Stay active if you're a subscriber so we can donate $1 for you. Only those who receive the October shipment will be counted for the donation.
  3. Spread the word! Help us get as many new subscribers as possible. Every current subscriber adds $1 and for new subscribers it's doubled, so let's get the word out and raise as much as possible.
Remember, those who get the October kit will not only be donating to a good cause, but they will also get a one-time only, pretty pink Paper Pumpkin box! No one will want to miss it. Promise.
More About BCRF

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world's most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $550 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis, making it one of the largest non-governmental funders of breast cancer research in the world. This year BCRF has invested $58.6 million in research, to support over 235 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents, including $11.6 million to the international Evelyn H. Lauder Founder's Fund focused on metastasis. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness programs, BCRF remains one of the nation's most fiscally responsible nonprofits. BCRF is the only breast cancer organization with an "A+" from CharityWatch, and has been awarded Charity Navigator's highest rating of four stars 13 times since 2002.

Additional Details: 
  • New subscribers are those who signed up between September 11 and October 10, 2015and have not been a Paper Pumpkin subscriber at any time in the past. 
  • All funds will be donated in US dollars.
  • Mini spoiler alert! The October project inside the pink box is just as awesome as always, but we should probably let you know that it is not a pink project. That's all we're saying. ;)
  • Funds will be donated based on number of subscribers instead of boxes shipped. But, if you want more than one pink box, you can always increase your subscription quantity by logging into your account at before October 10.
