Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase spring themed paper crafting projects projects. You may have arrived from Lisa Kmiec’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

The Petal Promenade designer series paper is so pretty with the fabulous photographic floral images. I paired it with shimmery white cardstock to amp up the wow factor. The pearlized doilie adds another layer of glimmer along with the silver metallic edge ribbon. The Ruffled embossing folder can be fully appreciated on the inside of the greeting card.

Create the rounded corners on the patterned paper by inserting the paper through the backside of the Pretty Label punch.

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.

Did you notice the mirror reflection in the punch? It says a FREE Stamp Set is included in every March kit to celebrate Paper Pumpkin’s 6th birthday. Yah! Make sure to subscribe by March 10th with your demonstrator. Or pick me as your demonstrator if you don’t already have a demonstrator so you can get in on the March kit and your free stamp set!

Stampin’ Up! produces a fast time motion Youtube video to show kit assembly as intended for the visual learners out there, including me!

Thank you for joining us as we share the possibilities of Paper Pumpkin. Now hop over to Deb Naylor’s blog to see what she designed.

ICS Blog Hop Passion for Punches!

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase our Passion for Punches! You may have arrived from Deb Naylor’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

My starting point was the strip of leftover Garden Impressions designer series paper. I highlighted the colors in the paper with the inks. Snippets of daffodil delight ribbon brighten the look and remind me of the sun.

The ruffled embossing folder used on the garden green cardstock adds a little interest. The Pretty Label punch fits the sentiment stamp perfectly even though it was not officially designed to do so. Take a look at your punches. They may fit other stamps in this way too.

All the supplies used plus the Big Shot machine…
