The July My Paper Pumpkin kit called Picnic Paradise was adorable and the baskets were the perfect choice for me to make for a treat for my girlfriends at a recent luncheon we had.
I was lucky enough to get an extra kit from a customer who does not like the kits when they are not just cards so she keeps the ink and stamps and gives me the rest. Yay. So as a thanks to her I wanted to make something special so I saw this picnic table card from fellow demonstrator Rachel Tessman and knew it make the perfect thank you for giving me her extra kit. The foundation of the table was built as a bridge fold card and I added paper from the Stampin Up Wood Textures #144177 DSP collection to make the table look realistic. The rest of the table was created using left overs from the Picnic Paradise My Paper Pumpkin kit.
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.
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!

I have been trying to stay current with my My Paper Pumpkin kits but have fallen behind again. Today’s post shows what I did with the March 2018 May Good Things grow kit. The first 2 cards were completed as intended but the 3 cards on the right I changed. The 3 cards on the right were intended to be the envelopes for the cards and I just did not like that idea so I tore them about and made cards from the leftovers.
I have been receiving My Paper Pumpkin almost from the very beginning and I still get giddy inside when my bright orange box arrives each month. Usually I stop everything and open up the kit to see whats inside and then make at least a few of the items as designed. I save some stuff to do alternate designs but this months Valentine kit – Heartfelt Love Notes came at the perfect time for me to have enough valentines to send out. Yay! I made 14 of the 16 cards as intended and saved the last 2 for something outside the box.
I used the October My Paper Pumpkin Pining for Plaid kit to create 2 alternative designs. Both cards use the card bases from the Stampin Up My Paper Pumpkin kit and I added a strip of DSP from the Merry Little Christmas #144621 collection and added the printed card from the kit. For the top card, I used my Stampin Up trimmer to create segments and layered them with pop dots to create the telescoping effect.
The Oct 2017 Stampin Up My Paper Pumpkin Kit, Pining For Plaid came in handy this Christmas to help me get my Christmas cards done. The shaker cards worked up quick and are sure to delight the recipient. The My Paper Pumpkin kits are perfect for all levels of crafters.
