DSC05107 DSC05108 DSC05109

This clever pocket card starts out as a long rectangle of card stock. After two folds, you have a pocket on the front and one on the inside. For this card I utilized both pockets. As a bonus this week the winner will receive directions in a PDF file on how to make this type of card! Remember Wednesday provides blog readers an opportunity to win a paper crafting project item. I will pick a blog reader who leaves a comment on the post. The winner will be posted the following Wednesday on the Give away Page. The winner will simply need to claim the paper crafting project by providing a mailing address.

Team Tuesday What is Paper Pumpkin?


$19.95/per month that includes postage!


Q: How can I learn more about stamping?

A: You can visit the Stampin’ Up! website to learn more. If you would like to get in touch with a creative coach who can help you get started, click on

Q: When Will I Be Billed?

A: Your credit card will be charged as soon as your Paper Pumpkin ships. You will get an e-mail notifying you that your card has been charged.

Q: What comes in my Paper Pumpkin?

A: It’s a surprise each month—anticipation for the surprise is seriously half the fun! No worries, though, you’ll have everything you need to complete the project: paper, stamps, ink, accessories, and more! (You will need adhesive.)

Q: Is my subscription on auto renew?

A: Yes, your subscription is on auto renew. However, you can skip a month or cancel at any time. Simply log on to your account and click “manage my account” on or before the 10th of the month in order to skip the Paper Pumpkin for that month or cancel completely.

Q: When do I need to sign up in order to get my Paper Pumpkin for a specific month?

A: You need to sign up by the 10th of the month in order to receive your Paper Pumpkin for that month. If you sign up after the 10th―no worries! You will get your first kit the following month. You’ll know your Paper Pumpkin is on its way when you receive your shipment confirmation e-mail.

Q: It asked me if I have a demonstrator—what is that?

A: A demonstrator is a super cool creativity coach that sells Stampin’ Up! products. Sign up at:

Q: What is a prepaid subscription?

A: Prepaid subscriptions provide an opportunity to purchase several months of Paper Pumpkin all at once. These orders can be placed on a customer, workshop, demonstrator, or online order. Plus they are commissionable and will qualify for hostess benefits.

Q: How many prepaid months can I purchase at once?

A: You  can select a subscription for one, three, six, or 12 months.

Q: Is there a discount for ordering a higher number of months at once?

A: Yes, there is a savings. When you order a six-month subscription, you save $1 per month, and when you order a 12-month subscription, you save $2 per month.

Q: Can I order more than one prepaid subscription at once?

A: Each Paper Pumpkin account can only use one redemption code at a time. For example, if someone buys two six-month prepaid subscriptions, they’ll enter the first code and then, after six months, enter the second code.

Q: How are prepaid subscriptions redeemed?

A: When the order is paid for and closed, the customer will receive an e-mail with a redemption code and instructions on how to redeem. The e-mail will guide them to where they will enter their code. The system will recognize the number of months they’ve paid for. Be sure to instruct your customers to enter all their information on the site so when their prepaid subscription runs out, they can continue to receive Paper Pumpkin kits without interruption.

Q: Can a current subscriber order a prepaid subscription?

A: Of course! After they order and enter the code, the prepaid months will be used up before any future shipments are charged. When the prepaid months are over, the subscription will continue and be charged monthly to the credit card on file. Keep in mind that if a current subscriber is already attached to a demonstrator, the existing subscription will remain with the original demonstrator.

Q: Can a prepaid subscription be ordered with a hostess code?

A: Yes. If you have a workshop with a hostess code set up, a customer can go online and enter any of the prepaid subscription item numbers.

Q: Can I buy a prepaid subscription with hostess benefits?

A: Yes. A prepaid subscription can be added to either the free or half-priced hostess items.

Q: Can a prepaid subscription be ordered as a gift?

A: Yes. You’d just purchase the prepaid subscription and when you receive the redemption code, share it with the recipient of your choice who can redeem the subscription at One thing to keep in mind is that the redemption codes will not work across borders. (So, someone in Canada could not gift a subscription to someone is the US and vice versa.)

Q: What happens when a prepaid subscription is not redeemed?

A: Codes will expire after three years (two years for California residents). At that time they will be turned over as unclaimed property.
