Fun With Paper Pumpkin

Hi!  Today I have an alternative project for the July 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit!  Thanks to Nancy for the idea that you’ll find here.

I love how these turned out!

Paper Pumpkin, July 2018, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The kit makes 3×3 note cards – which are very cute – but I don’t typically use that size, so I took my supplies and am making Post-It Note holders that would be sure to brighten anyone’s desk!

Here are the directions:

  • Base:  Cut a piece of cardstock 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and score at 2″, 4″ and 4 1/2″
  • Easel Front: Piece of Whisper White cardstock 3 1/2″ x 4″
  • Plaid backgrounds – Cut the tissue paper from the kit 3 1/2″ x 4″ – need 2
  • Cut the 3×3 note cards in half (need 1 per holder)

Fold on all score lines for the base.  Use one of the plaid pieces and attach to the inside (where there are no folds).  Attach the second plaid piece to the 3 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.   Attach this piece to the bottom only of the front of the base (the 3 1/2″ x 2″ fold section)  It is easiest to apply your adhesive to the front flap of the base so that you do not go above the score line.

Here is a side view of the holder so you can see how the easel looks and how the plaid panel is attached  at just the bottom:

Use Tear and Tape and to adhere the 3″ x 3″ sticky pad to the inside of the base.

Stamp the border from the Paper Pumpkin stamp set in Soft Suede ink around all 4 sides of the Crumb Cake piece.  Adhere one of the Vellum plaid pieces to the top.  Adhere the fruit and leaf die-cuts.  Wrap ribbon around the panel.  Stamp a sentiment in Soft Suede ink to one of the Whisper White labels in the kit.  Attach with dimensionals.   Attach this entire panel to the plaid front piece using dimensionals.

Here is a front view:

Paper Pumpkin Valentine

Hi!  Thank goodness I am a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber!  In my last minute mode, I needed to make Valentine’s for my family and didn’t have much time.  Paper Pumpkin to the rescue!  January’s Heartfelt Notes was the perfect kit and they were a big hit with the kids!

Valentines, Paper Pumpkin, Jan2018, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The kit contains enough materials to make 16 adorable pocket cards. Untie the ribbon, and there is a note tucked into the pocket.  You could also put a gift card or small, flat piece of candy like a Ghiradelli square.   The kit comes complete with everything you need (except scissors) to make these cards.  Since I didn’t need 16 Valentines, I’ll be changing this up just a bit to make Gift Card Holders for Birthdays and Anniversaries.   They are just perfect for that!

What is Paper Pumpkin?  It is a box of creativity that arrives at your door every month!  The box contains all supplies (except scissors) to make that month’s project.  The projects change every month – from cards, to treat packaging, to home decor – its a crafty surprise!!  It takes about 30-45 minutes to make the projects.   Who doesn’t deserve a little creative time each month?   Monthly cost is $19.95 plus tax (S/H is already included!)

A Pop of Paradise

Hi!  Today I am so excited to share with  you some of the cards I made using the August Paper Pumpkin kit!!  As most know, I get the kit every month, but rarely do I sit down and do it.  This one, I did!!  I LOVE IT!!

Giftable Greetings Paper Pumpkin, Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The kit is called Giftable Greetings and comes with 8 cards and a gorgeous box with a clear lid to put them in so you can gift them to a friend or family member!  The colors are so bright and cheerful – and there are tons of supplies – so I’ll be making more than 8 cards using other card stock and Designer Series Paper.   The kit has 6 stamped Thanks ovals, 6 stamped Congrats ovals and 6 blank ovals.  Since I don’t need quite so many Congrats cards, I flipped some of those over and created Hello and Happy Birthday cards instead.  I still have 10 ovals on which to stamp more sentiments!

Here is a closer view of some of the cards.  These two use the pre-stamped sentiments that come in the kit.

This next one uses the sentiment from Birthday Blooms.  I also rotated the card to make it landscape vs portrait.  The sentiment is stamped in Calypso Coral.

This next one I used the hello stamp from Hello, Friend – the embossing kit coordinating stamp set.  It is stamped in Pool Party ink:

Are these cards gorgeous or what?  The flowers remind me a bit of Hawaii – thus a little pop of paradise.
