Welcome to the blog of Jane Hignite, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

My Stampin’ Up! Anniversary

It’s hard to believe 14 years ago I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  As many demonstrators can relate, I “only signed up for the discount” was my feeling at the time.  I had no intention of doing parties or teaching others; I just wanted to get my crafting goodies cheap!

Well, here I am 14 years later, and my classes are busier than ever!  I love what I do, and I truly cherish the women I have welcomed into my home and crafting circle.

I started my anniversary celebrations earlier this month – I’m hosting an event in my home plus offering an item for 14% off each week.  I’ve offered some giveaways on my Facebook page already.  Here’s one for readers of my blog:





You will receive this Paper Pumpkin Kit – Party Pennants!  It includes 3 background stamps, 2 inkspots (Summer Starfruit and Pool Party), and all the items to make a cute little banner!  You can use the banner to decorate your hearth, a cake, or take parts of it and use it on cards or scrapbook pages!

Leave a comment on my blog and tell me what you will be celebrating in the coming months!  I’ll pick a random winner on Wednesday evening!

Paper Pumpkin PALOOZA!

Oh, my!  Stampin' Up! is hosting its annual convention this week, and rock-your-world types of announcements are being made!!!!

NEW Paper Pumpkin Subscribers can use the Promo Code PUMPKINDEAL to join Paper Pumpkin for only $10 a month for the first two months! Woo Hoo! What a great way to start your Paper Pumpkin journey!  This offer is good for NEW customers only through August 31st.


So I'm sure you're asking – what is Paper Pumpkin? It is a monthly craft kit program from Stampin' Up! Every month, Stampin' Up! sends a project kit right to your home. It is a surprise so you never know what is in the box until you open it. The anticipation of opening a bright red package awaits you! You can make the project usually in a short amount of time (around 30 minutes), and everything you need is in the box except for scissors and adhesive. Great idea for a monthly craft time with grandkids or girlfriends – perfect to take on trips or camping too!

Every Paper Pumpkin Kit arrives on or around the 15th of the month.

You need to sign up for the Paper Pumpkin Kit by the 10th of the month in order to get started. The first kit is the Welcome Kit – Then, after the first month, you will get the assigned monthly kit (kit projects vary from cards, journals, party crafts, and other similar items).

With this deal, your first two months are $10 each month (including shipping). The cost to continue the Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (which includes shipping). You can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit or even skip a month (if you alert them prior to the 10th of the month) at any time.

If you already joined Paper Pumpkin, you cannot cancel it and get the deal. Sorry, this is for new customers only.

Want to Join? Here's How:

To sign up for the monthly Paper Pumpkin Program, click HERE or click on the link to the left of this screen.  Be sure to enter PUMPKINDEAL in the promo code section!!!

The Welcome Kit is the very first Paper Pumpkin you will receive in your first month of membership. The Welcome Kit includes a free gift-a clear acrylic block!  This is what the kit contents include:



You can make four cards with the supplies included (add some more cardstock and envelopes and stamp some more).  Here is one way you can create the card:


Of course, you can create something different with the supplies!

Give it a try!

I do receive commission from these kits, and I would love to have you part of my personal Paper Pumpkin Palooza Patrol! I'm always here to help if you get stumped (although next to impossible). Plus, there are plenty of ways you can use your kit items (stamps, inks, etc.) after you're finished creating. If you're into Pinterest, you know those crafty pinning ladies come up with some really cool ideas too;)!

Have any questions? Call or email me – I can get you started on this fun journey!
