One in a Melon

Watermelons just remind me of picnics and summer-time fun! And that’s exactly what I thought of when I received this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  The kit is super cute!  Watermelon stamp images…Watermelon Bags….Watermelon paper…I had a lot of yummy ideas running through my head! Just look at all of these fun projects!

I just loved the little watermelon bags with the red tissue paper…the tissue paper had little watermelon seeds on it! Super cute! This kit was so fun that I ended up stamping 20 watermelon images and then cutting them out by hand so that I could create some fun alternate designs! Not all of the cards are pictured here as I created several cards as a special surprise for my paper pumpkin subscribers.  They will all get a little bit of summery fun in the mail this week!

One of my favorite things about the monthly kits are the exclusive stamp sets!  The sets allow me to continue to create fun cards like these…I just simply use my own cardstock and supplies. I love the watercolored background with the stamped images.

Whether you are an avid crafter or just beginning, you will enjoy these monthly kits!  It’s the element of surprise that I really enjoy…I never know what the theme of the kit is until it arrives!  To me, that’s half the fun!

Sprinkled with Love

There are some simply adorable projects coming out in the monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Last month’s kit was called Sprinkled with Love and contained all of the materials to make 9 cards and coordinating gift bags! They are the perfect little card and gift bag idea when you want to engage in a random act of kindness.  Well, that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw them.  I thought how cute it would be to put a little donut or sweet treat in the bag and give it to someone in this office just to say “thank you for all of your hard work.” Or even just wrap up a sweet treat for the hubby and leave it next to his lunch before I head off to work.

There is something truly special about receiving a little handmade gift. Sometimes it’s the little things that we do that tend to mean so much. The projects in last month’s kit certainly made me think about ways to spread kindness and make someone smile. That’s what I love about these kits.  Every month I complete the projects and then randomly give them to people throughout the day, week, month. There are always lots of smiles, hugs and thank yous which, to me, is one of my favorite things about engaging in random acts of kindness.

The monthly kit program has something for everyone. For the avid crafter, it’s a great way to get ideas. For the new crafter, it’s a great way to get started. Start a new creative journey with the monthly paper pumpkin program!  You will be glad you did!

And right now, if you sign up by June 10, 2017, NEW subscribers can get 25% off their first 3 months! That’s 25% off the regular price of $19.95 applied to one kit per month for the first 3 months of a new subscription!

Adoring Arrows

Hello Stampin Friends!  Hope you are having a great start to your weekend!  Today I want to share a few little projects that I created with the stamp set in the January Paper Pumpkin kit!  If you are not familiar with Paper Pumpkin, it is a monthly subscription program for crafters!  Each month you receive a fun little crafting kit sent right to your home! The kit contains everything you need to create the projects for the month. And, this month, the kit focused on Valentine’s Day. It contained all of the materials, stamps and ink you needed to create 24 adorable little treat bags just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Aren’t these adorable?  I made up a few of these as gifts for my attendees at class this week. I plan on making up the rest of them this weekend with my grandson.  He will have a blast filling these up with candy! Now you can use the materials in the kit to create other projects too!  I like to show my Paper Pumpkin subscribers a few different things that they can do with the kit materials and the stamps.  This month I decided to create some fun little cards with the stamp set that came in the kit.

Now the kit came with the calypso coral ink and the stamp set. I simply used some of my own cardstock and embellishments to create these three quick and simple cards! I love that I can use the stamp set over and over to create all sorts of fun things!  And the stamp sets are exclusive to the paper pumpkin kits so you can’t get them anywhere else!  Now is the best time to get started with paper pumpkin as there is a Sale-a-bration special!  The 3-month pre-paid subscription is only $55 (regular price is $59.00)!  This discounted price is good until March 31, 2017 plus when you order a 3-month prepaid subscription, you get to choose a Sale-a-bration catalog item for FREE!

Cute Conversations

January 2016 PP Cute Conversations ProjectsGood Morning! My grandson has kept me sooooo busy for the past few days that I haven’t been able to post any fun projects for all of you!  Those little 3 year olds sure can keep ya hopping! 🙂  Today I want to share some of the fun projects I created with materials from the January 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit called Cute Conversations.  As you can see, this particular kit had a Valentine’s Day theme. The kit contained enough materials to make a variety of little heart treat pouches and a banner. I decided to create a few cards and treat pouches with the materials, instead of a banner, so that I can give out some fun little gifts to the ladies at my Valentine’s Day class this week.

The heart treat pouches were super simple to make and you can easily recreate them if you have a large heart shaped framelit. Simply cut out 2 hearts from cardstock or pretty patterned papers. Stamp some fun Valentine’s Day or Love-Themed images and sentiments on the hearts. Adhere the sides of the hearts together (starting from the bottom) with some type of strong adhesive. Be sure to leave the top part of the hearts open so you can tuck some treats in there. For the finishing touch, add a few embellishments like banners, sequins, ribbons, etc.

Since I didn’t make the banner, there were lots of fun materials left to play with. I simply added a few of my own supplies, like cardstock and designer paper, and created all of these fun cards:
