I used some of the leftover pieces from the You’re My Paper Pumpkin kit to create some cute home dec items. Its a great ways to stretch the paper pumpkin kits and these are perfect for summer decorating.

Cammie created a simple card using the printed and now retired DSP. She stamped a birthday greeting on top of the background paper and added the pen from the Crafting Forever #143955 Stampin Up stamp set. She stamped the pen, colored it with the coordinating Stampin Write markers and then hand cut it out before popping it on the card.
I truly love the joy that that Bubble Over #145868 and the coordinating Bottles & Bubbles Framelits from Stampin Up brings to me and really uncorks my creativity when I am designing birthday cards. I added some The stamp set is perfect for all age groups and will sure to add a “pop” to a birthday greeting. The strip of coordinating DSP was from the Bubbles and Fizz DSP that is no longer available.
I used the April 2018 My Paper Pumpkin kit called You’re My Anchor to make an alternate card design and a treat box using one of the boxes and filled it with lifesavers for a clever play on words gift. The Paper Pumpkin kits are so fun to receive each month and can get your crafting on without a lot of extra supplies needed. Everything you need comes in one box!
The now retired Foil Frenzy DSP is the focal point of this card that I accented with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I added the sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingo #143758 Stampin Up stamp set. This card is perfect for any girly girl!
It’s 6 months until Christmas and the 25 of the month so that means it’s time for a Christmas post. Cammie started off with a piece of DSP from the now retired Christmas Around the World collection from Stampin Up. She created the main tranquil scenery panel of pine trees and snow capped mountains using the Waterfront#146386 stampset.
Here is one of my latest book folding creations. I took the class at a local bookstore and what a great result. The flowers were made from recycled flyers and the book was an old encyclopedia. I added some green leaves cut using various leaf framelits and punches.
Today’s post is another in my Just Retired card class. This card features the now retired Happy Celebrations Stampin Up stamp set and the retired Colored Theory DSP Paper Stack. I simply just stamped the HAPPY and then hand cut the letters and placed them on a strip of the DSP. I added another sentiment and randomly punched stars for a masculine birthday card.
I had been wanting to use the now retired Naturally Eclectic DSP from Stampin Up but never got around to it until now. I paired it with the now retired Your Priceless stamp set. The diamond was cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits #143774. I loved how this turned out and went to town using up the other patterns in the Naturally Eclectic DSP so stay tuned.
I had a few scrap pieces of the the now retired True Gentleman DSP from Stampin Up laying around so I used the Tailored Tag #145667 to punch them out and just placed them on a very vanilla card base. I added the Happy Birthday sentiment cut from the Happy Birthday Thinlit #143700 and I had a quick and easy birthday card.
