Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities 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 March Paper Pumpkin kit, Sentimental Rose, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog. She had a great project!

What to do with the stamps after the original kits contents are depleted? This month, I carefully opened the box and slipped only the stamp set out. I did not want my designing mojo to be influenced by the suggested designs included with the kit.

I started plucking pieces from my sniblets pile, added the Layered Leaves embossing folder to the crumb cake card base, daubed on Wink of Stella and crumpled up the fussy cut rose because it was just too flat looking (and that is just the kind of day I am having, a good busy but I am not going to get it all done before the clock strikes midnight!).

Uncrumple the rose and voila!, came up with this idea…

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Poppin’ Birthday

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities 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 March Paper Pumpkin kit, Poppin’ Birthday, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Charmane Hopkins’ blog. She had a great project!

Follow the photos below to see what I created. I started with the bonus numbers stamps by peeling back the protective plastic sheet. I inked 1-9 with Granny Apple Green ink. You can see the bottom row of stamps are uninked.

I centered the inked stamps on Granny Apple Green cardstock and pressed on the protective plastic sheet with my fingers to transfer the ink from the stamps to the paper.

Voila! A fun background!

Add the streamers stamp along the edges to complete the background stamping. Use the included poppy parade ink spot to stamp the party hats around the gray striped paper that was cut from the kit contents.

Add the sentiment on the die cut that was included in the kit. Decorate with the party hat and bow die cuts that were included in the kit.

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop Grown With Kindness

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 February Paper Pumpkin kit, Grown with Kindness, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from June Olsen’s blog. She had a great project!

I decided to line our 3×6 inch gusset bag with one of the printed layers included in the kit. The treat will be “hidden” in the bag behind the printed layer.

About 4 mini 100 Grand candy bars fit inside the bag once the bag is opened.

Cut the patterned piece of paper to 3 and 7/8th inches parallel to the long side. Then score at 2 inches parallel to the short side.

The long piece that was cut off from the main piece serves as a backer to the fresh fig banner. Use the Everyday Label punch to create a tag from one of the cardstock pieces. It has a pretty, neutral design printed on it already. Attach all the pieces of the tag using the included dimensionals. Tie a bow from the included ribbon. Add a dew droplet too from the kit contents.

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop Be My Valentine

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…

all the supplies used…plus the Big shot too! The heart epoxy elements are from the Paper Pumpkin kit as well.

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.
