VIDEO: December Paper Pumpkin Kit “Day by Day” Kit Fun & Giveaway


On today’s Paper Pumpkin kit video, I’m doing something a little different. Instead of 2 videos for the December kit, I’m combing them into one – unboxing and alternates. I liked the calendar that came in the kit, but wanted it to stand up, so I found this stand online to display it on my desk. I have more details on both the kit, more alternate projects and where to get this display stand below. You can use the Table of Contents in the top right of this post for a quick jump, or scroll down.

I’ll be putting the kit together on this video live at noon today EST on Youtube and Facebook. You can catch it live, or watch the replay below.

Double Prize Patrol! Because I’ve combined the 2 videos into 1 for this kit only, I’ll be giving away double the prize patrol. Woot! Double your chance, double your fun. Leave a message on the video to enter. I’ll be drawing prizes for both live and replay viewers.

New this month – I now have downloadable stamp case inserts for September – December posted below. I will post these inserts each month with my videos.


In addition to the kit, I’ll also be sharing some fabulous Sale-a-bration projects from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. I’ll also be making a bonus project from the designer paper that you’re going to love. I will be posting the free PDF of the card I make, and photos of the other card ideas I’m sharing on the video later today here (this link will be active after the class airs).

The Paper Pumpkin team has made an important discovery: Our customers LOVE, LOVE, LOVE calendars. So naturally (since we aim to please!) we asked our concept artist to develop the cutest 2019 calendar ever. She obliged, creating the perfect, banner-shaped monthly calendar that you can hang from the wall—at home or in your cubicle at work—using the lovely weave ribbon included with the kit.
We also give you TWO Classic Stampin’ Spots in delicious Grapefruit Grove and refreshing Pool Party so you can stamp the white die-cut stickers and create your own topper for each month. If you’re a super-nice crafter who plans to share this kit with a friend, we’ve included gold foil tags—one to tie to the clear box with baker’s twine and some extras which you can use for holidays and birthdays.

Kit Features

Each Day by Day kit comes with 18 calendar pages, 1 printed gift box, 1 clear box lid, 1 printed chipboard backer, 1 sheet gold foil tags, 5 sheets white die-cut stickers, 3 yds. blue weave ribbon, and 1 yd. baker’s twine. And don’t forget the exclusive stamp set and Grapefruit Grove and Pool Party ink spots!

Alternate Uses

Stampin’ Up!  concept artists really show off their mad skills when they make alternates for Paper Pumpkin—and we love seeing what they’ll come up with next.
Do you love these projects?
To make the Fresh Start card, simply cut off the calendar banner tops and stamp using coordinating ink colors. (Or use whatever color you want! We won’t judge.) Then, adhere the banner tops to the front of your card. Finish by stamping the greeting on the back of a remaining calendar piece, then punch it out using the Everyday Label Punch. Perfect card. No hassle.
The next project? It’s genius: an adorable little easel for displaying each calendar month. And it’s so easy to make. Just cut a piece of 4-1/4″ x 4″ cardstock and score at 1”, 2″, and 3″. Use a pencil to mark where the banner lines up with the holes, then punch with an 1/8″ Circle Punch. Stamp the circle and oval shapes. Then fussy cut flower petals and leaves and adhere a Rhinestone Basic Jewel. Secure the calendar to the easel using Baker’s Twine. So cute!
We made our last alternate project by repurposing the gift box into a handy, little storage container. To make the wide divider, cut cardstock at 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. Score at 3/8″, then move over 7/8″ and score. Move over 7/8″ and score once again. (You will have 3/8″ remaining.) To make a small divider, cut cardstock at 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″. Repeat scoring above. Fold and adhere to box bottom using Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Coordinating Products

We’ve rounded up a selection of coordinating products especially for this month’s kit. They’re perfect for making the alternate products showcased above and can be found in one easy place on the online store.


I got the calendar stand on Amazon, it was called the Barconic Flip Menu Stand.


If you don’t have the December kit and wanted to make these flip calendars. You can customize calendars online at I wasn’t able to find them this small by default, but you could manipulate these on your computer to print them smaller. Print them on card stock and cut them down. The size of the card stock on the kit calendars is approximately 4″ x 5″, but the stand is adjustable so could make them other sizes.
