Stampin’ Up! April Paper Pumpkin Kit

My April Paper Pumpkin kit arrived earlier this week and I’m sharing it with you today.  This is a fantastic kit…so my style!  This kit is called You Are My Anchor and it included all of the supplies need to create 20 (yes 20!!) 3″x3″ note cards with envelopes AND 4 little gift boxes to give them in!

The kit included an exclusive stamp set and Island Indigo ink spot.

The little note cards are so cute!  Love the coordinating envelopes!

The kit made 4 each of 5 cards.  Here are 3 of the note cards (love the gold foil touches!).

Here are two of the cards and the cute gift box!

And here is the video that Stampin’ Up! put together for this kit.  If you’re viewing this blog post by email, you’ll need to click over to my blog post here to see the video.
