Once again, I was looking forward to putting together the October Paper Pumpkin kit – Peaceful Christmas. As I have said before, one of the main reasons I look forward to Paper Pumpkin because I can easily put together the cards or 3D project with a whole lot of thought. Even when I am tired – mentally, physically, or emotionally, I can relax and create by following the instructions. It is wonderful therapy and costs less than a massage or session with a licensed clinical therapist. (No offense to either profession. I have friends in both professions and have used their services. But, Paper Pumpkin doesn’t require an appointment or driving anywhere as it arrives in the mail.)
This month there was another reason I was looking forward to the arrival of the kit -the trees! Not only did the kit have stamped trees and vellum trees, but it also coordinated with the Peaceful Cabin Bundle. The Peaceful Cabin stamp set has a cabin, of course, along with sentiments, snowflakes, a fence, a fox, and . . . trees! The Cabin Dies cut out the outline of the trees, cabin, and fence as well as the inside. Oh, and I can’t forget the snowflakes and the fox. You can create card width scenes with the silhouette of the fox, cabin and trees!
Here are a few of the alternatives I created, combining the elements of the October Paper Pumpkin Kit and the Peaceful Cabin Bundle.
I have to admit, it took a little extra thinking to put these together but I think it was worth it. I look forward to making a few more with this kit and bundle. There are so many possibilities.
