A Paper Pumpkin Treat

Hello! Is it me or are the days getting shorter? I know here in Denver the nights are getting cooler too. I think fall is coming. I can't wait.

Have you checked out the My Pumpkin Challenge lately? If not, head on over and check out some lovely creations! Here is my sample for this week. This little treat holder is the perfect size for a Ghirardelli Chocolate Square!

Here is how I did it:

You can see how I cut the box that was included in the July Paper Pumpkin kit. After I cut the piece I wanted to use, I scored 3/4" and then cut off the end piece. So when you close it as shown in the top picture you have a little treat holder. I punched two small holes at the top for the ribbon and stamped Happy Birthday (stamp from previous kit), added a banner and star at the bottom to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think about this treat holder.

Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

Have you heard of Project Life by Stampin' Up!? This product line was introduced in the Stampin' Up! 2014-2015 Annual Catalog. To sum it up, Project Life is memory-keeping made easy. It is made up of photos/memorabilia and journaling combined with Project Life accessories that slip into pockets. Fast, easy, and fun.

I am a classic scrapbooker. I love my scrapbooks. I enjoy working on them when I have time, but I don't have time. I have two very busy kids. I take tons of photos and I am embarrassed to admit how behind I am on their books. Years, lots of years. Sigh.

Cue, Project Life by Stampin' Up! It is time to step out of my comfort zone. I enjoy classic scrapbooking. I enjoy spending time working on cute page layouts and journaling stories for each photo. Reality has set in, I do not have time for my old school ways. I took the leap and ordered my new Project Life by Stampin' Up's products.

I am really excited to play with my new items. I have photos printed ready to go. I think I will enjoy this memory-keeping method!

Stay tuned! I will show you my final product soon. What do you do with your photos? Do you scrapbook, use Project Life or maybe make digital scrapbooks? I would love to know what method works for you.

Thanks for stopping by.
