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.
For today’s post I took some leftovers from the Stampin Up April 2017 My Paper Pumpkin kit called It’s a Sara Thing to create a simple masculine card.
Here’s one final card that I made using the June 2017 My Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin Up. The kit was called One in a Melon and was intended to be used as a gift bag complete with tissue paper that I used as the card front bottom layer. All the rest of the goods on the card were cut down and sized to fit a card.
I think it’s a fitting tribute to summers unofficial end with the last piece of watermelon. Enjoy the upcoming Labor Day celebration!
Here’s another super quick card made using the Stampin Up It’s Sara Thing My Paper Pumpkin card kit. The My Paper Pumpkin and other card kits from Stampin Up are a perfect way to have plenty of cards on hand for birthdays and other occasions. The kits include lots of elements leftover so you can add some cardstock and other supplies to extend the kit even further.
