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.

Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin, Take 2

The July 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit was still on my crafting table so I had to make a few more cards with it.  I wanted to use the Basket Weave Dynamic embossing folder, I think it really adds to the cards.  I also pulled in Blueberry Bushel, Granny Apple Green, and Poppy Parade to use with the embossing folder.

Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin

I love getting my monthly Paper Pumpkin kit but sometimes it’s not exactly something I would use as is.   I think 3″ x 3″ cards are adorable but I can’t mail them in that form so I decided to change these to A2 size cards ( 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).  All I did to change them was cut the 3″ x 6″ card base in half ( now I have two of them!), cut the tissue paper to use for background paper and add a Crumb Cake card base.  So easy and so cute!

Fun Things Happen When We Gather

Not long ago I got together with a few demonstrators over at Rachel Tessman’s house because Mackenzie was in town visiting.  It was a good enough excuse to gather and make some cards together.  I’d just driven back from our Spring Break trip to see family in Illinois so I didn’t have time to create a make & take to share but here is what some of the others created for us to make.

Rachel used the new Paper Pumpkin kit and a note card for her make & take.

Susan used the Myths & Magic suite for her card.

Vicki used a fun fold and the Petal Palette Bundle for her card.

Hot Chocolate Treat Card

Susan Campfield does a weekly Facebook live for her team and a few weeks ago she showed a treat holder that she modified one she saw from B.J. Peters.  I just knew I had to make it!  Partly because I still had some test tube treat holders left over from a past Paper Pumpkin kit and partly because it was just so cute.  Susan made hers with a penguin on the front using the Smitten Mitten bundle, I don’t have that bundle so I pulled out the Cookie-Cutter Christmas set.  I always have a tough time getting a clean image with such a solid stamp, I can’t wait until I get my Stamparatus!

The marshmallows are Jet-Puffed Marshmallow bits.  I colored in the rhinestones with a black sharpie (that somehow looks blue) and the dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend.  Since the little gingerbread man didn’t stamp so cleanly, I colored over him with a little Wink of Stella.

The Real Red is cut to 5″ x 9 3/8″ and scored along the long edge at 3 3/4″, 4 3/8″ and 5″.  Fold on the middle score line and cut two slits to the next score line so there is something to hold the test tube.  I used tear and tape between the 4 3/8″ and 5″ score lines because you want something strong.

Paper Pumpkin Extra for October

I love getting my Paper Pumpkin kits in the mail each month.  It’s fun to have a box of crafty goodness to play with that I didn’t design.  This month it was a box of 10 shaker cards with leftover pieces!  I can’t wait to see what November’s kit brings!  If you want to join in the fun, just visit PaperPumpkin.com.

Here’s a card I created using some of the leftover pieces from the October kit.  The snow at the bottom is just an edge I cut.  I would have made a hat for the snowman but the card ran out of room.  🙂

I just got my Paper Pumpkin kit and it’s oh so cute!  I was feeling stumped for creating something to post and this revived my mojo!  I also used ribbon!  (That doesn’t happen often enough.)
