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.
