March Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the first ever Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful blog hop featuring alternate projects for the March 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit by Stampin’ Up! There are some amazing projects featured by very talented demonstrators, so please be sure to scroll down to the next button to check out all of the other blogs!

I love the shabby-chic vibes I got when putting this kit together. The suggested projects for this kit are beautiful all on their own, but I really like trying to create alternate cards using only the contents of the kit. Scroll down to see a time-lapse video of how I put this card together using one of the envelopes from the kit.

I love that this kit included brads! I love hardware on my cards, and have been missing brads and eyelets. I decided to use two brads on the label because I think it gives this card an extra “oomph”. I cut off the scalloped edge of the flap and used the Crumb Cake side as an accent on the front of my card. I also cut out the two roses from the Flower Seeds packet envelope and paired them with the green die cut leaves. I added a few of the Fresh Fig pearl embellishments and tied some ribbon around the scalloped flap piece.

I love the colors on this card, and how easy it was to put together. Dimensionals are definitely one of my favorite adhesives, and I was so glad Stampin’ Up! added a HUGE sheet of them in this month’s kit, because I doubled up a lot to get several layers on this card.

If you don’t already have a demonstrator, I would love to be your Creative Coach! How can I help you?
Your support means a lot to me and helps me to continue doing what I love, which is making videos for you to enjoy.

March 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit

I simply adored this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. It was SO adorable with a shabby-chic and vintage vibe. I only made one of the two designs from this month’s kit, and fell in love right away! I wanted to share a few photos of the card I created, and a quick time-lapse video from putting together this card and envelope.

The colors from this month’s kit were so well coordinated, as it is with all of Stampin’ Up!’s products. I really love the pink and purple colors together mixed with the gorgeous neutrals of Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. These colors really complimented the project.

The card was very simple to put together. I used the included stamps for the corner images on the pink background as well as the sentiments on both the card and the envelope. (The card is on the right, envelope is on the left.) The floral and leaf images were already printed on paper. All I had to do was pop them out and glue them down! This kit also included some beautiful Fresh Fig ribbon and pearl embellishments.

I love how easy it is to have a monthly kit delivered to my mailbox. Every month, I have at least 8 projects that I can create quickly and share with my family and friends. The kit includes everything I need to make beautifully coordinated cards or other fun projects. Plus, signing up for a 3-month or longer subscription in March also earns Sale-A-Bration rewards! So it’s a perfect time to get started with this amazing kit!

To learn more, head over to my Paper Pumpkin site, or contact me to talk one on one about how you can use this amazing subscription to jump start your monthly creativity escape!

If you don’t already have a demonstrator, I would love to be your Creative Coach! How can I help you?
If your order is over $150, don’t use a hostess code because you qualify for your own Stampin’ Rewards!
If your order is less than $150, use my current hostess code HYUCYZY2 when you place your order to get a thank you card from me at the beginning of next month! Your support means a lot to me and helps me to continue doing what I love, which is making videos for you to enjoy.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a super special blog post with an alternate project for this kit!
