I have been really slacking in my My Paper Pumpkin box reviews. I've actually had this one done for awhile but just haven't blogged it yet. However I thought of it as I was getting the cards out to use for teacher Valentine Cards. :)
First look had me excited. The box rattled when I got it so I thought something had gotten loose but nope Stampin' Up had included a container of In Color Boutique accents in each box. Such a great little add-on. I actually used some on the scrapbook page I shared on Saturday. You can see them HERE. I love when you get a little extra.
This was the January kit and that makes alot of sense to send Valentine Love cards so that you have time to make them and share. I don't normally send Valentine's cards but I knew right away that I was going to use these for teachers cards this year. With that I knew I wasn't going to change them up much.
These are the four cards I created. I have lots of supplies left over that I'm going to incorporate into my stash. :) I also love the LOVE stamp this month. I can use that when scrapbooking and the extra stickers are always fun to incorporate into other pages. Since these are Stampin' Up kits the colors coordinate with the colors for my other papers. :)

So what do you think? I think January's cards are pretty cute and very usable. I can't wait to see this months and the upcoming months as they are changing the stamps from clear foam to a photopolymer and said they are also going to beef up the box contents. I can't wait to see what that includes. So exciting. :)
