Grad Gift Made Easy!

It is that time of year! The end of the school year brings on many Graduations. What a great milestone to celebrate. The March Paper Pumpkin kit made it easy to make a whole set of grad cards if you need them. My card above looks like a normal card, but open it up, boom.....it has a pocket for some cash! I bet that is the perfect gift!
I did something similar to last weeks sample. (It is kind of the mini version of that sample.) It fits our theme for this month at the My Pumpkin Challenge, Pocket Full of Surprises!

My Pockets are Full!

Disclaimer: My pockets are usually full of tissues due to my seasonal allergies, but that is how I roll! However, the pocket on my card is full of gift card goodness.  

This card was very easy to make. The card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Whisper White, folded in half. Then, I cut the flaps off the designer paper envelope from the kit. That left the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece which I cut diagonally in half for the pocket on the front. I also used my paper piercing tool to punch holes on the Whisper White base along the pocket to add some texture. 

We love to see what you are making! Please share your samples over at the My Pumpkin Challenge.

Pocket Full of Little Treats!

I will start off with my usual phrase....the latest Paper Pumpkin is awesome! I say something close to that each month. Seriously though, these kits get better and better each month. Next month, to celebrate Paper Pumpkin's third birthday we get a bonus stamp set in our kits. Be sure to sign up by April 10th if you want an extra goodie. Pretty sweet deal!

To change up my kit this week I made a bigger "pocket" that would hold a little treat with the gift card. I added a small pack of gum but I also think it is the perfect size for a Ghirardelli chocolate square. Yum! Here is how I did it:
I folded the tabs on two of the pockets from the kit. Then, I adhered tabs together. Next, I adhered that piece to the front of the card. So easy, and I was able to just use items from the kit.

Be sure to visit the My Pumpkin Challenge to see what the Design Team has created this week. You can also share your creations at the bottom of the post! We love to see what you are making.

Flowers Forever!

This is the last few days of the March My Pumpkin Challenge....Say it With Flowers
For my sample this week I wanted to use the "hello sunshine" stamp from the kit and I thought it needed a sunburst. I pulled out my Kinda Eclectic stamp set for the sun and the butterflies. I usually try to only use what is provided with the kit, but I needed the sun! 

Last week I did not have a moment to post my sample but you can see it below. We had two snow days due to a spring blizzard and then I caught some weird bug that is going around. I really like the Basic Black card stock with the flowers from the kit, I think it makes them pop!  
I hope you had fun with this kit. I think there was so many fun alternatives. If you have a moment visit the My Paper Challenge and share your creations or leave with some inspiration!
