This week I’ve been taking care of home projects so blogging was put aside for a few days.  You know all those “get around to” projects – well, I finally got around to some of them!  It sure felt good to cross the tasks off the list.  

Today, I’m back sharing with you the information on the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin, Joy to the World. The Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin Kit is an exclusive holiday kit that provides a specially-designed box with enough supplies to create eight elegant cards.  Plus, there’s an opportunity to connect with the Stampin’ Up! global community.

With October’s magical kit, not only can you get a head start on your holiday crafting—you can create Christmas cards, share project ideas, and spread holiday cheer with other Stampin’ Up! customers and demonstrators around the world! After you receive your kit, you can join the Joy of Paper Pumpkin Facebook group to make the most of the Joy to the World kit.
