Card kits…and more!!

Posted on

I can’t believe so much time has passed since my last post. Holy moley…it’s crazy!!

In my last post I talked about becoming a Stampin’ Up demonstrator. Well, after some thought I decided against it. I HATE the idea of limiting my creativity. There’s so many awesome products out there that I love to use and want to share with you all.

Last month, while still making my Stampin’ Up decision, I subscribed to two monthly card kits…My Paper Pumpkin and Simon Says Stamp. My Paper Pumpkin had a special offer of 50% off for the first two months with a regular subscription price of $24.95/month. Simon Says Stamp’s monthly subscription fee is $19.95/month. So…they more or less cost the same.

To be honest, I’m not impressed with My Paper Pumpkin. No matter what month you subscribe you’re introductory package is the same. I really like that special touch they have added with the packaging…it’s wrapped in tissue paper and comes with a “thank you” card. But that’s where it ends. Their kit came with 4 cards, 4 envelopes, an ink spot, 2 stamps, 4 embellishments, and a sheet of stickers. Not worth the money…in my opinion! I hate to give up on a product so I’ll remain subscribed for a few more months. Fingers crossed it gets better!!

When I received the Simon Says Stamp kit, it was beyond exciting!! Their kit included a full set of stamps, full 8.5″ x 11″ sheets of cardstock, double sided sheets of 6″ x 6″ designer paper, stencil, ink pad, and a full package of embellishments. This card kit is well worth the money. The creative possibilities with this kit are unlimited. I’ll be remaining a subscriber to the Simon Says Stamp card kits…no question!!
