Paper Pumpkin October 2016 Kit Review

Paper Pumpkin – Season of Gratitude – October 2016 Kit Review and Giveaway

october-2016-season-of-gratitude-kitIt is hard to imagine that we are starting to enter the holiday season. I have officially seen my first holiday commercial complete with music!

What is often overlooked is in our march towards this time of year, it is also important to remember to show gratitude. When I think of this coming time of year, I always reflect on what I am thankful for and the people I appreciate the most.

When I received the October 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit “Season of Gratitude” I knew I had received the cards I wanted that would show all the people I care about some gratitude.

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.

This month is a kit that makes 8 cards full of gratitude and is titled “Season of Gratitude“.

  • Season of Gratitude Photopolymer Stamp Set
  •  Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin’ Spot Ink

Together these 7 clear polymer stamps stick well on a clear block and are easy to use with the enclosed tags. Included was a stamp pad in Chocolate Chip, which is a brown color that is a deep brown.

The concept behind this months kit is that when completed you have 8 cards that can be sent to friends, teachers, family and friends in gratitude.
