Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the January Paper Pumpkin kit, Be My Valentine, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from June Olsen’s blog. She had a great project!

The chameleon stamp with the fly friend is part of the included stamp set in the Paper Pumpkin kit. After all the kit supplies are used up, you can still use the stamp set on alternate projects. So I decided to use garden green ink on the stamp and color using ink pads and a blender pen.

All the solid colored paper was processed through the Big Shot using either the new Rectangle Stitched framelits (item # 148551, 13 sizes in this set!) or the squares from the Stitched Shapes framelits (item #145372). The “You’re So Fly” piece was stamped on a strip of whisper white that was 1/2 inch high. Then it was cut using the smallest square framelit giving it a coordinating stitched look on 2 sides.

The full card…

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop Picnic Paradise

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the July Paper Pumpkin kit, Picnic Paradise. You may have arrived from Sharon Burkert’s blog. She had a great project!

I designed a basket full of strawberries to decorate the front of a greeting card. These would make a fun, summertime invitation to an ice cream social during strawberry season.

I used the basket from the kit as a template and traced it on a piece of the Wood Textures designer series paper. I cut along the tracing line and stamped the “weave” from the weave stamp that was included in the kit.

Next, I cut about a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch of tissue from the blue tissue that is included in the kit. Fold the tissue into quarters, tuck inside the basket and fold 2 of the corners down. The blue tissue coordinates with our Pool Party cardstock which I used as the card base.

When the strawberries and blueberries that are included in the kit are used up, reach for our Lemon Builder punch and Lemon Zest stamp set and fill the baskets with lemons instead!

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use this June Paper Pumpkin kit, Broadway Star. You may have arrived from Deb’s blog. She had a great project! Here is what I designed…

Party favors and small gift packaging are items I frequently use. It is easy to transform the supplies from a Paper Pumpkin kit from the original project to treat toppers and acetate box inserts.

Where is the color coordinating candy? I was thinking of fun stixs but Jim was the one that did the grocery shopping this week. Had I asked him to locate lemon lime twist colored fun stixs, you can imagine his response. So my 2×8 inch cello bags remain empty for now.

The Hooray card is inside an acetate card box. The card serves as fun decoration but is also functional since I will include an envelope for the card. About 5 cards with envelopes or small gifts like jewelry, chocolates or even lemon lime twist fun stixs can fit inside the box. 🙂

Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project for You Are My Anchor

I’ll be a hop stop tomorrow for an alternate Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop featuring the April kit, You Are My Anchor. Today, I am sharing a project I designed in a few minutes with the help of this kit. The gift note makes a perfect gift bag tie on with enough space inside to write a personal message.

The gusseted cello bag is a roomy 6×17 inch bag that can contain a nice array of goodies. I designed this bag with the intent that this could be a bon voyage bag for a trip across the state, country or day outing too. The glare from the cello makes this photo out of focus but wanted to share the ruler scale for perspective.
