Suggestions for using your Paper Pumpkin kit’s stamps, ink & extra items after you complete the kit to make more projects!

beyond the box note cards made with stamps from paper pumpkin kits

To show you how to think about ways you can use your Paper Pumpkin kit “Beyond the Box”, I did a Facebook Live on November 13, 2022. During the Live we worked together on designing the 4 cards in the middle, the other 4 are the cards I did prior to the Live. To view the Live, go to my Facebook Page or view it on my YouTube channel Nancy Dodge – YB Stamp

In addition to my Paper Pumpkin supplies from previous kits, I used the following products:

Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes #159232

Water Painters #151298

Stampin’ Spritzers #126185

Paper Pumpkin Kit Storage

I encourage all of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers to organize your stamps, ink spots & embellishments for ease of making a card whenever needed. Here is how I organize mine:

I purchased clear plastic pockets, 1 pouch for each month, to enclose the directions & stamps then put them in a 3-ring binder in chronological order. If you would like to view these on Amazon click Clear Plastic Binder Pocket (PLEASE NOTE: I do not receive any compensation for this item).

I have a “Table of Contents” in the front of the binder so that I can glance all the Paper Pumpkin stamps sets over to see what I have available to make my card.

Free Table of Contents!

If you followed me on Facebook or Instagram here is the file for the Table of Contents, I use for organizing my past Paper Pumpkin stamps. If you would like to view the video, watch the beginning of this YouTube video. Please let me know if you need previous years:


I purchased a cheap photo album that holds 4″ x 6″ photos and put my extra sequins, rhinestones etc… in the photo sleeves. This way I can flip through the “Book of Bling” as we call it at my house, to find the perfect embellishment!

Ink Spots

To store the ink spots, I purchased Tim Holtz Mini Ink Storage tins (I have 1 for each color family, Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles & In Color). Now when you sit down to make a card you can see all the different colors available to make it!
