Paper Pumpkin – Day by Day kit

Happy New Year!  I’m back today with an alternative for the December 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I really wanted to have the year on each of the months and a picture that went with them so here is what I came up with.  (My craft table is a mess right now, you will see why when you see how many stamp sets I used.)

I used the retired Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper on a piece of chipboard I saved from the kit.  I ALWAYS save my chipboard, you never know when you will need it.  The rings are 1/2″ book rings and I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the chipboard.  I cut the chipboard on my guillotine style cutter after adding the DSP (apparently I need to clean the blade to get a sharper cut).  The banner for each year is from Pick A Pennant and done using the Stamparatus.

The chipboard is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ front and back.  The base is 4″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 1″, 2″, & 3″ then folded as above.  I attached the chipboard using Beacon 3 in 1 glue.

Colorful Seasons

My favorite part of this set of stamps and dies is the snowflakes but I didn’t think my class would like to do snowflakes in August so Adirondack chair it is.  🙂  I used a card by Patty Bennett as my inspiration and created this card.

#TGIFC153 Bonus Week Challenge

Today I’m playing along with the TGIF Challenge and I knew exactly which card I was going to CASE!  I’d seen it on the Demonstrator Planning Place Facebook group earlier and LOVED IT!  Stesha used the Springtime Florals DSP from Sale-a-Bration which I sadly didn’t get but that gave me the opportunity to try and recreate it using current Stampin’ Up! supplies.

Since that photo doesn’t show how shiny it really is, I’m adding a few more.

Let It Snow Scrapbook Layout

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Colorful Seasons

I saw Rachel’s Layout here and I had to try it.  Now if you know me, you know how hard it is for me to do anything that isn’t straight and lined up.  This page was a challenge for me.  I ended up popping up the middle mats on each page with Stampin’ Dimensionals so I could just slide the other mats under.  The middle mats are pretty much centered on the page so I could handle adding the other mats at angles.  It was rough!  🙂

The “Let it snow” stamp is from the November Paper Pumpkin kit but I didn’t have anything else like it.  Paper Pumpkin has some great stamp sets each month, it’s worth it to sign up for the stamp set and stampin’ spot alone!

The Whisper White photo mats are 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ and the Dapper Denim photo mats are 4″ x 5 1/2″.  For the Dapper Denim stamped snowflakes, I inked once and stamped three times to get a progressively lighter shade.
