Hidden Treats!


Did you notice these cute envelope boxes from the February kit have just enough space for some goodies? I punched a circle out and adhered a window sheet (from a previous kit) inside so you can get a peek of the card. Behind that card is a little treat bag with some candy inside. A cute little gift for someone special.

The flap on the envelope tucks right under that brad. That brad was another leftover from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit.

What have you been making with your Paper Pumpkin kits? I hope that you will share your lovely creations over at the My Pumpkin Challenge. Whether you follow the instructions that are included in the kit or changing things up, I bet you are having fun making handmade cards and projects!

Thanks for stopping by.

THANKS Paper Pumpkin Style!

I am always looking for ways to change up the Paper Pumpkin kits just a little bit! This THANKS banner folds up nicely and fits in the cute envelope boxes from the February kits. I cut the card base just under 2" so it would fit in the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch. I adhered the THANKS down the banner, punched some flowers and leaves and added some Rhinestone bling! A whole group of people can sign the back of this card and the recipient will love it!

How have you changed up your Paper Pumpkin kit? Share your creations over at the My Pumpkin Challenge. We love when you inspire us! While you are there, I hope you will check out the Design Team's creations.

So Many Possibilities!

Each month I open my new Paper Pumpkin kit and so many ideas run through my head! The project tutorial they include in each kit is fabulous, especially if you just want to sit for thirty minutes and make your kit. You have cards/projects on hand for many occasions. I love it. I also enjoy changing it up and making my own creations with the items they include in the kit.

As you can see from my sample above, I used a few different kits to make this card. What have you been making with your Paper Pumpkin kits? Please share your creations over at the My Pumpkin Challenge. We love to see what you have made.

Project Life Our Way

I will confess, I rarely print my photos. They sit in the cloud or on my computer or back up drive. I know I will have them forever. I just have no time for scrapbooking right now.

Enter Project Life.

Last summer, I surprised My Man with a trip to Las Vegas. He had never been there so on his birthday, I packed his bag, woke him up early and told him we are going on an adventure. He thought we were going to breakfast before work! He did not realize a car service was waiting outside to drive us to the airport. He was genuinely surprised. (Let me tell you, it was hard to keep this trip a secret!) We took many photos and had lots of fun. So I decided to print our photos and give Project Life a try. Don't be fooled, My Project Life goodies and photos sat around waiting for some love for over six months. Then, one cold and snowy weekend, I decided to pull out my stash and get to work. Really, it was a team effort, My Man, sat at the table with me and we documented our trip!


First, we sorted through the photos and put them in the order we wanted for our album.


Then we got to work slipping photos into the pockets and picking out Project Life cards to compliment each layout.


We took turns journaling throughout the album.


This photo above was taken from my perspective as we worked away!


We completed our album within three hours. Not too bad! I enjoy showing it off so everyone can check out our trip. It was a lot of fun working on this album with My Man. We laughed and reminisced. We did it our way. Project Life makes it easy to preserve your memories. Your photos and the Project Life cards slip right into the Photo Pocket Pages. If you are feeling creative you can step it up and use the accessory packs and stamps to personalize your album.

Have you tried Project Life? I still consider myself a newbie! Do you have any tips for my next album?

Thanks for stopping by!
