I have been MIA for awhile.  Spring time- yes, even though it is cold, I believe it is officially SPRING, is a hard time.  I had a great trip to Vegas!  But that three hour time change is rough.  Top it off that is was daylight savings weekend too!  Geesh!!!!  I am finally rested up and back into the groove of running the kiddos around again!  Spring time also brings soccer, flag football team, and scouts.  Kids going in every direction!!!  With the busy time of the year, my first Paper Pumpkin box couldn't have come at a better time!!!  Don't have time to do a done of crafting?  Paper Pumpkin can help!  Everything you need is in the box for a fun quick craft!!!!  I am loving this!!!

If you don't know, My Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription box.  The first box you receive will come with a clear block to use your stamps that come with the box each month.  Each box will have everything you need to make the craft for that month.  The craft will be different each month!!!  This month's box is cards!  These boxes are perfect for people like me, that are busy but want to make some projects still, first time crafters, and season crafters too!  If you are a season crafter, you might think WHY do I need to get a box each month? The projects are cute! Fast and quick!  AND....if you are a season crafter, you can step up these projects with your extra supplies you already have!!!! 

Some of the boxes are coming in a kraft box this month, but all will later change to the red box later on.  I like kraft so this change up doesn't bother me at all!  I am sure I will love the red box as well too!  I will plan to repurpose my box!  I will cover with Designer Series Paper and reuse!!  The front does come with a shipping label on it but since I will cover with DSP, it won't matter.

This is a first peek in the box!  Very nice presentation! 

This card tells you about the clear block that you receive with ANY FIRST order that you get!  You keep the block to reuse each month.  This is a big plus for me.  I am a HUGE fan of Stampin' Up's clear blocks.  I don't think there are any ones better!  They are very comfy in your hand!  I love these blocks!  It is a great way to try a SU block and see for yourself!!!

Here you see the clear block, this month's stamp set and a ink spot.

This month's color is Basic Gray.  I love Stampin' Spots.  They are great to pack in your to go bag for crops and retreats.  They are great to use for direct to paper techniques.  Since I have most of the Stampin' Spots already, I will pass this spot onto my niece.  She will love getting some ink for her stamps!!!  Spots can be used in the same way as a full pad.  Turn that stamp upside down and pat the ink spot on your stamp!  EASY!!! 

All stamps that come with the monthly box are clear mount.  If you have never tried clear mount, this is a great way to try them out!  I ordered some extra stamp cases from Stampin' UP, so I will store them in the case.  I will be able to store a couple of month's boxes in one clear case!

This is the package that contains the project.

First time crafter?  Don't know where to start.....don't worry, they have it covered!!!  Each box comes with a picture of the project!!!

And EASY to follow directions!!!  You are ready to create!!!!

This set contains enough to make four  COMPLETE cards- including envelopes.

Overall, I think this is a great box.  Are you interested in getting a month craft box delivered right to your door?  Head over to
