Are you subscribed to Paper Pumpkin? You should be! These kits keep getting better and better. I LOVE the kit I received earlier this month! It definitely says Fall. Fall colors. Fall leaves. It’s gorgeous.
Here you can see the projects as I made them according to the provided directions. So cute! What you can’t see from the picture is that both the pillow box and the little card are embossed with a swirly wind-like pattern. After I made these two projects I decided that I really didn’t need pillow boxes or 3″ x 3″ note cards so I tried to figure out how I could make them into regular size cards.
This is what I came up with. Didn’t they turn out nice? I kept the leaves and tag portions as is from the kit since they were so cut. For the card on the left I cut apart the pillow box and used it as the background for the leaves and just added a border of Whisper White and adhered it to a Cajun Craze card.
For the card on the right I cut apart the 3″ x 3″ card AND the coordinating envelope using both of them as layers for my leaves. Again I just added a border of Whisper White and adhered everything to a Cajun Craze card.
I’m really looking forward to next month’s kit….actually I’m looking forward to the kits for both October and November. Why you ask? Well…Stampin’ Up! has shared with us that these are going to coordinating kits! Yep. You heard me correctly. They are going to be coordinating. There will cards as well as gift giving items for the upcoming holidays. I can’t wait to check it out! If you want to receive your coordinating kits be sure to sign up for Paper Pumpkin prior to October 10th.
