Paper Pumpkin: Giftable Greetings – August 2017 Kit Review

Paper Pumpkin – Giftable Greetings – August 2017 Kit Review + Giveaway

I believe there is nothing more personal or sentimental than giving a person a handmade card. Not only is the person receiving a handmade card, but usually there is time and love behind each card that the recipient feels. A couple of times throughout the year I send cards and have always wanted to make a set for family.

The theme for the August 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit is called “Giftable Greetings” which is a set of cards and a cute box that you can gift someone with.

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Paper Pumpkin/Stampin’ Up, but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.

The August kit that makes 8 cards, 8 envelopes and 1 box is titled “Giftable Greetings“.

  • 8 printed envelopes (4 each of 2 colors)
  • 1 Printed Card Box
  • 1 Clear Box Lid
  • 3 Sheets Leaf Stickers
  • 2 Sheets Die-Cut Flowers (1 each of 2 colors)
  • 2 Sheets Printed Die-Cut Ovals
  • 1 Sheet Blank Die-Cut Ovals
  • 1 Sheet Printed Die-Cut Flowers
  • 2/3 yd. Navy Bakers Twine
  • 1 yd. Striped Coral Ribbon
  • 50 Dimensionals
  • 50 Adhesive Dots

Included with each box are written instructions with full-color photos but also there is an instructional video available (Online Instructions) to help you complete the project each month.

This months stamp set is a mix of 9 stamps that have the floral leaf patterns, a branch, butterfly, and sentiments. Also included was a Stampin’ Spot Archival Ink’s in Night of Navy, which is a fast drying and acid free ink.

The instructions in this kit were easy to understand and simple. Also photos included were clear and even if omitted I would have been able to complete the kit.

The August 2017 Giftable Greetings kit is a collection of 8 bags with 8 coordinating envelopes with a cute gift box.

There are 6 Congratulations Oval pre-printed pieces and 6 Thanks Oval pre-printed pieces, which allow the ability to customize these when needed, instead of preparing them all once.

The end result is a card collection that is personalized for someone special. Giftable Greetings would be a great gift for graduates, new homeowners, hostesses, as well as anyone else who would love a handmade card collection.


Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up boxes are available for $19.95/month, $59.00/3 months, $114.00/6 months and $215.00/12 months and the shipping is included in the cost. The 6-month is a total savings of about $6, about a $1 a month savings and the 12-month is total savings of about $24, about a $2 a month savings thus ends up totaling the amount of receiving one kit free. Prices as of 9/15/2017.

    The most memorable gift I ever received was a hand drawn picture of me and the sweetest little boy I have ever known. His name was Joseph and he drew me this picture so that I would never forget him. (Like THAT would ever happen!)
    It was March 2003 and we were just hanging out , visiting, on one of his rare days at home. Sadly, on May 14, 2003 he lost his battle with cancer and went to live with the angels.
    He is still a big part of our lives even though he is not physically here with us. Our oldest son named his firstborn after him and all three of our grandchildren know how special he was.
    I still have that picture hanging on my refrigerator and not a day goes by without at least one thought about him.

    “What was the most memorable gift you have ever received?” Maybe a nice ring I once got.

    I got a brand new Dishwasher from my kids. I love cooking and mine wasn’t working so this was so needed.

    I have collected panda bear stuff of all kinds since I was 25 years old. For my birthday one year, my son gave me a rock painted like a panda bear. I love it!

    My Mom and Dad bought my sister and I handmade quilts that we had admired at a craft show and gave them to us for Christmas. We never expected to get them. Thanks for the giveaway!

    My most memorable gift was a gold pendant that said “mommy” from my daughter when she was 12 or so. I wore it daily until last April. She gave birth to a beautiful girl and I gave her my necklace.

    A most memorable gift is a necklace with a precious stone from my grandmothers bracelet. My parents had a necklace made for me and each of my 3 sisters. #treasured
