Kits - Stampin' Up!

Paper Pumpkin Pinwheel Party

Last month's Paper Pumpkin Kit arrived just in time for the 4th of July .  It was Max's first Paper Pumpkin kit delivered right to his door, so you can imagine his excitement!   #cardmaking, #dawnolchefske, #diy, #dostamping, #papercrafting, #stampinup, #paperpumpkin, #pinwheels, #4thofjuly, #treatpackaging

Here's Sam, Angie and Max busy making up the Pinwheel Party treat bags filled with homemade caramels.  

#cardmaking, #dawnolchefske, #diy, #dostamping, #papercrafting, #stampinup, #paperpumpkin, #pinwheels, #4thofjuly, #treatpackaging

As the kit came with enough supplies to create 24 treat bags (or pinwheel "flowers", or whatever you what to create with it)...there was plenty to hand out treats to coaches, friends and family!

The kit itself is no longer available.  However, the Pinwheel Party Refill Kit is available to Paper Pumpkin members/subscribers.  Just contact me with your refill order - can be added to with regular Stampin' Up! product too!

Pinwheel Party Refill Kit INCLUDES:

  • 24 precut designer pinwheel forms (8 ea. of 3 different patterns)
  • 24 paper straws
  • 20 Whisper White banners
  • 24 cellophane bags
  • Basic Gray Baker’s Twine
  • 24 silver brads
  • 24 silver clips

If you haven't heard...Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscriptions are here!  

I'm so excited about this option, especially since Stampin' Up! has made huge improvements to the kits.  If you haven't seen one lately - you're missing out!

  • Here's the best news - you can order the prepaid subscription online, at a party or contact me directly!  
  • Better yet - you can add Stampin' Up! product to your prepaid subscription order and when it reaches $150 or more - you qualify for Stampin' Rewards
  • Plus, if you're a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can order past kits and refills (just updated today:  check it out here - can only be order by following instructions on flyer, but other product may be added to it)
  • Woohoo!  Isn't that awesome?!  Sorry - I just can't contain myself.

Here's the price list for Prepaid Subscriptions:

  • 137858 1-month subscription $19.95
  • 137859 3-month subscription $59.85
  • 137860 6-month subscription $113.70—save $1 per month
  • 137861 12-month subscription $215.40—save $2 per month
  • prices include shipping, but not sales tax

How It Works:

1. When you place your order, you'll receive an e-mail from Stampin' Up! with instructions on how to redeem the prepaid subscription.
2. You'll go to and enter the redemption code.
3. Then you can start enjoying the monthly Paper Pumpkin project kit the very next month!

Other Details:

  • 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 can enter the second code.
  • Can be used as a gift subscription program, you can buy a prepaid subscription and give it as a gift. 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
  • Redemption codes will become invalid if not used within three years of the purchase date (two years for residents of California).

Paper Pumpkin: Pure Joy!

#dostamping #stampinup #dawnolchefske #paperpumpkin #kidscrafts #cardmakingkit #diy #heyman

Last month, my Paper Pumpkin kit (Hey Man) arrived just before my grandsons spent the weekend with us.  I know that Max "loooooves Paper Pumpkin" (as he puts it), so I set it aside for the two of us to work play with together.

#dostamping #stampinup #dawnolchefske #paperpumpkin #kidscrafts #cardmakingkit #diy

Here he is making his cards.  He did everything by himself with the exception of the twine. The upper left photo is kind of blurry, but it truly captures how he feels about Paper Pumpkin (loooooves it) and crafting with his Umma...Pure Joy!

We have a rating system for each Paper Pumpkin kit.  When we're done making the kit, I ask him to rate it on a scale of 1 to 5 (five is the highest).  The "Hey Man" kit was rated a 4 on the "Max Scale".  

My favorite thing about Paper Pumpkin was totally unexpected.  It's a special time to stamp with my grandson.  He loooooves Paper Pumpkin (oh, I said that already), and that touches my heart.  To give that experience to Max and myself...that's what this hobby is all about!  Don't you think?

#dostamping #stampinup #dawnolchefske #paperpumpkin #kidscrafts #cardmakingkit #diy 

If you have kids or grandkids who enjoy crafting, this is a perfect gift for them and yourself...special bonding time with your kids!  Or how about a neice or nephew who asks for "art supplies" for their birthday (like Max did)?  With Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscriptions, there is an option that is just right for everyone!  (prices below include shipping, but not sales tax) 

Add a Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription to your online order today!

(after you place your order, you'll receive instructions on how to redeem/start your subscription)

Monster Hugs Valentines with the Boys!

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #monsterhugs #valentinesday #kids

Oh my gosh - we had so much fun making Stampin' Up!'s Monster Hugs Valentines with our grandson's Max and Sam on Saturday.  They were easy to make and turned out super cute!  In fact, Sam just kept saying, "These are SO cute!" 

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #monsterhugs #valentinesday #kids

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #monsterhugs #valentinesday #kids

Sammy who is 4 yrs old, needed a little help with connecting the arms, but other than that...he put them together all by himself.  Though, he needed a little assist from a wooden skewer (to help remove the adhesive cover).  Ah, he's so proud!

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #monsterhugs #valentinesday #kids

Max (6 yrs old) didn't need any assistance at all. In fact - he was so confident in his Monster Hug making skills, we got it on video for you. Check it out!
