I was so excited that my Paper Pumpkin craft kit arrived this afternoon. It’s always so much fun when I see that orange box in my mailbox. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription kit full of fun papercrafting goodies. Be sure to see my review of the Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit to learn more.
This month’s kit is called Glittered Greetings. You get everything you need to make 8 fun Congrats or Thank You cards, as well as an instruction sheet. The highlight of this kit, in my opinion, is the fun wood veneer sentiments. Super cute! You can make all 8 cards in less than a half an hour!
All Paper Pumpkin Kits include at least one exclusive stamp and one ink pad. This month you get 2 stamps and 2 ink pads! I love chevrons, so I was really excited to see the stamps in this kit. I will definitely be putting these stamps to use making some Project Life journal cards! The colors of the ink pads are bright and cheerful – Island Indigo and Calypso Coral.
The kit comes with 8 cards that are printed with a fun striped pattern on the front. I just love the color Coastal Cabana. It makes me think of fun summer days at the beach!
You also get 8 white envelopes and 8 gold foil envelope liners. The picture isn’t the greatest, but trust me, this is a bright gold foil that will be a great offset for the cards.
Quick tip: Cut a couple of inches off the bottom of the envelope liners and you can use those gold foil strips for making punch art or die cuts. No one will be able to tell that the liners don’t go all the way down to the bottom of the envelopes!
Last, but not least, are the fun embellishments! You get 8 each of the Congrats and Thank You wood veneers and mini glue dots to adhere them to your cards. You also will receive a sheet of glitter dot stickers you can use to embellish your cards.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am a Stampin’ Up demonstrator. If you sign up for the Paper Pumpkin craft subscription box using any of the links included in this post, I earn a small commission, which helps contribute financially to my family so I can continue to work at home and be with my kids. That being said, I subscribe to this monthly kit myself and really love it. I only recommend products I have tried myself so I can feel good about recommending them to my readers.
