Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

I often talk about the Paper Pumpkin kits but I don’t often share what I make with all the supplies once I receive the kit. I am sharing that with you today.

I usually make up a single card of each design (pictured above) as per the instructions. The October kit entitled “Joy to the World” gives you enough supplies to create 8 cards (4 each of the 2 designs) along with the stamp set and ink to complete the project.

This picture below shows just 5 alternative cards that I have made so far but I have so many other ideas that I will be working on this week. I also deconstructed some of the envelopes (love the printed red paper) to add even more supplies to my stash.

As you can see, each kit can be stretched to make many more cards so you always get more bang for your buck with each kit. There is even a Paper Pumpkin Fan Club on Face Book where people showcase all the alternative cards and projects they make from each kit. It is a great source of inspiration and you would be amazed at what people create.

November’s cute, gingerbread-themed kit contains enough supplies to create one-of-a-kind Christmas crafts! Whether you use the kit to create cute gift card holders or traditional cards, the choice is up to you. You can also create tasty-looking gift tags. With curly cutouts, sugary stickers, and delicious die-cut designs in a special-edition box, a jolly holiday will be on its way with this kit! If you want this kit, you will need to Subscribe by Nov 10th.

I also wanted to remind you that the Designer Series Paper sale is coming to an end as of Oct 31st. You can save 15% of selected paper packages so it’s a great time to stock up.

Now for a sneak peak. On of the perks of being a demonstrator (aside from the discount) is that I can access select products before they become available to the general public. I would like to show you this card I made from one of the new products which will be available in January as part Sale-A-Bration. I absolutely love Dragon flies and this set doesn’t disappoint. There is even coordinating Designer Series Paper to make your projects even more appealing.

Making Gift Card Holders

Another option for gift cards, is to bake up a batch of cute Christmas crafts with the Jolly Gingerbread Paper Pumpkin Kit!

Speaking of newer Designer Series paper (DSP) , now is a great time to stock up with some beautiful papers. A select group of designs shown below are 15% off until the end of October and there are no limits on what you purchase. Tick! Tock! Time is running out. To shop now, click here to visit my online store.

I recently made up these gift card holders with some retired Christmas paper from last year. Small items like treat boxes or gift card holders are a great way to use up the old papers and make way for the newer Designer Series paper. I also used the new Poinsettia Petals bundle to stamp and cut out the flowers. I am loving this bundle as there are so many possibilities and different sized Poinsettia’s that you can stamp or cut out. Odds and ends of other stuff I had on hand were used to complete them.

This is a picture of the Poinsettia Petals Bundle I used on the gift card holders. As you can see, there are so many different sized flowers and leaves that it will suit just about any project you have in mind. These lovely flowers also suit very well in whites, silvers, blues. Who doesn’t like design options?

Gift Card Holder

Each year, my hubby asks me to make up a bunch of gift card holders for his team and every year, I look for a new way of presenting gift cards. I decided that this year I would create a wallet so came up with this design. I love how it turned out and there is a spot inside the card to write a personal message.

There are so many adorable stamp and die sets available for fall, halloween or getting a jump start on your Christmas crafting. Below is just one example on a bundle which could be used for both Christmas or Halloween and how versatile is that. Those owls are adorable and I can see them appearing on baby cards, anniversary cards or even birthday cards.

I love card and project kits because they are so easy to put together since everything is already pre-cut and ready to assemble. It is perfect for beginners or very busy people and it’s a great way to spend some time with family as you create together. Kids love doing crafts and what better way than to make something they will look forward to. This adorable advent calendar will do just that. It includes everything you need to make it up and each box is perfect for a small treat or two along with instructions. The kids will enjoy putting it together with you now and look forward to opening the boxes as we get closer to Christmas. Once christmas is over, you can pack it away to use next year.

Another example I want to share with you is the Halloween Nights Magic Bundle. This stamp and die bundle is just one of several bundles depicting halloween. There is plenty of time to get ready for that special night and it will be great fun to create treats or decorations for Halloween as shown below. You don’t need to wait then rush around at the last minute.
