Paper Pumpkin Thanks Yous

There was a beautiful red box in my mailbox yesterday -- this month's kit Paper Pumpkin kit magically appeared!  I won't spoil what was in it because I know some people may still be waiting for theirs.  However, I did want to share both a great special coming up for next month, and some cards I created last month for my Paper Pumpkin customers.  First, for the cards, I used the Promoting Paper Pumpkin stamp set, which demonstrators were able to purchase at Convention, and CASED a sample we were shown there.  (I did add a bit of sparkle and some flowers to dress up the cards a bit).

And, it was fun to be able to dress up the back Paper Pumpkin style as well:

As for the special, Stampin' Up! has announced that next month's kits will help support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation:

To show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we're going PINK . . . or at least our October boxes are! And because we know our subscribers want to share the love too, we will be making a donation on their behalf to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Stampin' Up! will donate
  • $1 for every active Paper Pumpkin subscriber.
  • Plus, an additional $1 for every new subscriber.
Together, we will make a difference!

More About BCRF

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world's most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $550 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis, making it one of the largest non-governmental funders of breast cancer research in the world. This year BCRF has invested $58.6 million in research, to support over 235 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents, including $11.6 million to the international Evelyn H. Lauder Founder's Fund focused on metastasis. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness programs, BCRF remains one of the nation's most fiscally responsible nonprofits. BCRF is the only breast cancer organization with an "A+" from CharityWatch, and has been awarded Charity Navigator's highest rating of four stars 13 times since 2002.
