May Paper Pumpkin

I will be honest. Initially I did not like Paper Pumpkin. I am not talking about one month. I didn’t like the concept. I didn’t want to use a kit that someone else created and my cards looked manufactured. I wanted to create my own cards that were unique and handmade. Then I tried it.

I have come to love Paper Pumpkin. To be honest, the main reason I love it is because I can create when I am tired or on the go. I don’t have to spend time coming up with designs. I don’t have to gather all the supplies. I can open the box, grab my scissors and bone folder, and create. After I make the predesigned cards (and have more energy), I can create alternatives.

May 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit

The June Paper Pumpkin was a stretch for me. I am not a baseball fan. I started by creating one each of the predesigned cards. I was tired, it was the end of the week so that was as far as I got.

Then I went on a trip. I took the kit and a few white 5 1/4″ x 4″ card fronts, that’s it. I wanted to see what I could create with the remaining pieces and the stamp set. Here’s what I came up with:

It was fun creating some simple alternatives without adding extra supplies (other than the additional card fronts). I hope you enjoyed these alternatives. I am looking forward to the June Paper Pumpkin which should be arriving to my mailbox any day now.

Greetings! I am excited to share my love for papercrafting with you. My main love is stamping and cardmaking but I also enjoy scrapbooking, tags, treat packaging, 3-D projects, and papermaking.
