Good Morning! I have been having a bit of paper pumpkin fun this past week as I played around with the new August 2014 Kit called Seriously Amazing! Vibrant and simple little card creations in this month’s kit…well the projects are always pretty simple especially since there are instructions and pictures in each kit! So let’s take a look at some of the fun alternative projects you can put together with the materials from the kit and by adding other supplies you may have on hand…
There were quite a few extra circle pieces left over (after I made all of the kit projects). I decided to take a bunch of those different colored circles and run them up the card. Once I secured all of the circles onto a piece of blackberry bliss cardstock, I embossed it with the new stars embossing folder (which comes out in the holiday catalog this week)!
Since I still had a bunch of little circles left (even after that last project), I decided to create a child’s birthday card. This is probably my favorite creation from the kit because the caterpillar just turned out so cute! The only additional materials I added to this card was the green cardstock, grass and some googly eyes! Super cute!
This month’s kit came with a few pre-cut words that I decided to use as a “stencil” or a “mask.” On this project, I used one of the pre-cut “thanks” templates and sponged a variety of different colors through it.
This particular card uses all of the kit materials except the strawberry slush cardstock that I added for the case of the card. I simply played around with the cardstock and shapes that came in the kit. Perfect little “thinking of you” card for my friend!
The final alternative project I put together is a gift bag. Now although the kit was focused on cards, I decided to take one of the big envelopes and use it to create a gift bag. I started by cutting a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 piece of cardboard (which is in ther kit) and use it for the bottom of this box. using the 2 big pink envelopes from the kit, I simply adhere the flaps to the cardboard, taped up the sides and folded the top flaps outward. Then it was ready to be decorated! I used that “thanks” cut-out as a mask and sponged it onto the front of the box before I put it together. For the handle I cut a white strip from the paper from materials in the kit and secured it to the bag with the brads. Fun little gift bag project!
The last alternative project I put together with this month’s kit showcases the flower shop and gorgeous grunge stamp sets. I wanted to use up some of the left over circles from the kit so I decided to use them in the center of the flowers.
