PPP Blog Hop: Peaceful Christmas


Welcome to the monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin and love to share our enthusiasm for this monthly box of fun and creativity with you. The Paper Pumpkin kit is designed so you can follow the instructions provided in the kit to make the projects, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild (as we have!) 

Hop along with us, as we will share alternate ideas on how we used the October Paper Pumpkin Kit: Peaceful Christmas.


This month's kit made 10 cards, 5 each of 2 designs. And check out the fun envelopes!! Here are the cards as designed:

You know I love making boxes out of the card bases. This month's green card base was perfect for that. So, instead of making the card, I turned it into a box. 

I, also, made an alternate card using the kit contents, and added just a white card base. The vellum tree negative part works perfect for a alternative to the trees themselves!!

Makes a perfect gift set for the upcoming holidays!

I hope you like my alternate projects...but you aren't done!!! Hop on over to Janey's blog to see what she has done with this fabulous kit!! Then, keep on hopping to see what the others have done!

We all love to see lots of presents under the tree on Christmas morning....so you won't want to miss the November kit...Gifts Galore!

With classic Christmas sentiments, bright and festive colors, a sweet snowman, a tree with all the trimmings, or a playful pile of presents, you’ll have everything you need to make eye-catching treat packages that are sure to spread Christmas cheer. Each Gifts Galore box contains enough supplies to create nine treat packages—three each of three designs—and nine food-safe bags that are adorably styled for easy Christmas gifting. There’s plenty of joy to share with Gifts Galore!

If you don't have a demonstrator that you work with, I would love to be yours!!

ICS Blog Hop: Rectangle Postage Stamp

Hello!! The Inspire Create Share team have some projects to share with you that incorporate the wonderful line of punches that Stampin' Up! has to offer. So here is this month's offering for My Favorite Punch.

The Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch:

I used it along with my current favorite stamp set, Peaceful Deer, which also coordinates with a great punch. 

Ok, it is my favorite punch at this moment, but that could change on my next card, if I use a punch, that one could easily become my favorite! I love all of the Stampin' Up! punches, and it appears you do too, since they tend to go on backorder frequently. Stampin' Up! cannot always keep up with the demand for them! 

Don't forget inside your card and your envelopes to finish strong!

Hope you like my card! What is your favorite Stampin' Up! punch? Can you pick one, or is it like picking your favorite child? 

Thanks for stopping by. Please, join me as I hop on over to Terri's blog, to see which one is her favorite punch. Then go through the whole hop and see if you can spot a card using your favorite!

I'm excited to share our October IDEAS Tutorial Bundle with you today. Our theme for this bundle is Family Celebrations. What do you celebrate with your family? We have so many things, but I chose to celebrate our Annual Family Bake Day. 

It started when my daughter was young, several of her cousin's would come over and we would spend the day making fudge, muddy buddies, chocolate oatmeal no bake, buried cherry cookies, and a slew of other things! I love spending that time with them, and now I am doing it with their kids, and even have a great grandnephew who started with us last year!

This graphic is a sneak peek at the some of the projects in our October IDEAS Tutorial Bundle:

My projects are exclusive to the bundle, but here is a snippet of one of my cards. I love the cookie feel of the cards and love the little spatula and oven mitt stickers provided in the Gingerbread and Peppermint Memories & More Card Pack. They are the perfect part of that suite to showcase my Annual Family Bake Day!

PPP Blog Hop: Haunts and Harvest


Hello Stampers!! Thanks for joining us on tonight's Blog Hop featuring the September Paper Pumpkin kit: Haunts & Harvest. We all love Paper Pumpkin, and love to show you the possibilities that each kit contains, whether you make it just like it shows in the kit directions, or if you change it up to your liking!

This month's kit feature 12 treat boxes that could be made into Halloween Jack-o-lanterns or into Harvest pumpkins, or a mixture of each. The really unique thing about this kit, is the box itself can be made into a wheelbarrow to hold your pumpkins or Jack-o-lanterns and the cutting instructions are already on the box for you!! What a cool idea! 

Here is what that looks like:

I haven't decided what to do with my treat boxes just yet, so went with an alternate card. I used several of the stamps, cut up one of the treat boxes into strips, and even cut a strip from the box to use. Why not, since the rest is going to get cut up anyway?!

Here is my card:

I used the reverse side of the leaves and using a blending brush, I softly inked them up. I also used the negative part of the leaf as a template for inking the other leaves cascading down the side of the card. I also added some to the card inside. I love how they turned out, they look so soft. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop! Click the next button and hop on over to Janey's blog and see if she went with Haunts or Harvest?!

Creative Crafternoon - September week 2

 Hi friends!! I am late, but here is last weeks Creative Crafternoon project. I am using the Peaceful Deer bundle and Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper.  I am also focusing on doing fun fold cards that use just a card base for the card, then of course decorating it. 

This fold, is a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock, with a 2 3/4" piece cut off the front and then turned to hold the focal point of the card. Click here if you want to watch the video. 

What do you think of the non traditional colors for Christmas cards? Like it, or not?

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!
