September 2015 Paper Pumpkin -Alternative Projects


I hold a Paper Pumpkin Play Day each month for my customers who have chosen to subscribe and receive Paper Pumpkin.  Currently there is no extra charge to attend Play Day.

What is Paper Pumpkin??  It is a surprise in your mailbox every month and it comes in a bright pumpkin-colored box!  It always contains a stamp set and ink spot, plus enough paper/stickers/embellishments for multiple projects.  Past projects have included cards, tags, bags, boxes, and more.  We never know what’s coming, but it’s always a lot of fun!

What is the monthly cost?  Only $19.95 for a box full of fun!

How do I sign up?  Follow this link to get signed up.  Kits ship on or around the 10th of the month, so to get October’s kit, you must sign up before the 10th.  (And since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Paper Pumpkin will arrive in a PINK box and $1 will be donated for breast cancer research.)

I try to come up with some alternate uses for the kits just to show that you don’t always have to follow the included directions.  Here are a few that I came up with for the September 2015 Paper Pumpkin.

The card stock colors I chose to use are Delightful Dijon, Perfect Plum and Cajun Craze.  Ink colors were Delightful Dijon, Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze (all from previous or current Paper Pumpkin kit).  The raven stamp is from another past kit.  The embossing folder in the photo below is from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday 2015 catalog, “Woodland” on page 39.  The leaves are hand cut.




Below is a picture of the kit put together the way it was intended, (back, right side) and then a couple other ideas from a Facebook group I belong to.  There are so many great ways to use this kit!

Be a Paper Pumpkin subscriber and join my Play Day in October.  You’ll be glad you did!

Welcome to my Paper Pumpkin Play Day where my subscribers can come, hang out and work on their Paper Pumpkin kits as a group.  I like to offer some alternative projects because variety is the spice of life and we may not always love the featured project or need multiples of it.  If you sign up for Paper Pumpkin using the following link, you’ll be eligible for my monthly Play Day!    Krista’s Paper Pumpkin Link

Here are some of my alternative projects for the August kit.
