April Paper Pumpkin

Sunday, April 17, 2016
Yeah! my Paper Pumpkin arrived on Friday and I couldn't wait to check it out. It's always so exciting to get this box of creativity in my mailbox.  Sure beats bills, right?!
Everything I need to make a cute Springtime Wreath.
 This is the stamp set that goes along with the kit
And this is the EXTRA - FREE stamp set that they promised us as a celebration of Paper Pumpkins third birthday and 1,000,000 kits sold.
 Look at this great Happy Birthday stamp!  I love it!!
 Chalk board tags
 This is a branch for the wreath but the first thing I saw with this is Reindeer antlers so stay tuned - I plan to make a 12x12 scrapbook page using this.
 I ton a these greenery strips for wrapping your wreath.  They already a full strips of sticky tape on the back of each one.
 This is the cute hanging frame that you will hang from your wreath using the Very Vanilla Ink on the Chalkboard tags.  Along with glue dots and a package of natural ribbon.
 These are cotton paper flowers (refer back to the photo of the instruction sheet).  I don't dare throw out the negative images after I punched them out because I think I can use them for sponging flowers onto a card or project.
Here is the video of how to assemble the Lovely Little Wreath
Now, I am going to admit that I am not a wreath kinda girl, but I have learned to not be discouraged when I get a project based kit instead of a card based kit because there are so many other ideas that will come out that I will find to be fabulous!  Most times I make up one kit as per the instructions and then use my second kit for alternate projects, but this time I will probably not make up the wreath, and I will look forward to seeing what everyone will do with their kits.
The best part is the variety of stamps that we get and can use for our card making.
Want to get in on the paper pumpkin fun??!! 
When you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin through me you will get a PDF of exclusive alternate ideas to use with your kit that is put together by myself and members of the Red Hot Stampers.
While we are talking Paper Pumpkin, let me share with you a few alternate ideas that I made that were inspired by other talented demonstrators: JanB, and Rachel Tessman (who has a FB group dedicated to Paper Pumpkin where we share ideas using our Paper Pumpkin Kits.)
 I love this first one which was made using the Pool Party card base and then I stamped images from TIMELESS TEXTURES in Smoky Slate to create the background.  The flowers are from FLOWER SHOP and PETITE PETALS.
 This fun 12x12 scrapbook page was timely because of my recent surgery. I'm doing pretty good.  I figure I am right on schedule for healing.  The down side is that walking with the shoe and not able to put full pressure on my foot yet and the difference in the height of my shoes has thrown my back out terribly.  I am not used to so much down time.  The bandages are made from the small gift card holders and the OUCH is made from the sticky tags and my circle punches.
This cute monster card was also made using the small gift card holder, just the opposite side of what you see on the bandages.  Isn't he just the cutest!! Pin It Now!
