Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop: A Little Smile

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love sharing 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 June Paper Pumpkin Kit: A Little Smile!

Here is the kit as designed:

These mini cards are adorable, and were designed so you could give Random Acts of Kindness wherever you go! But, I went bigger with my alternate project. At first I was going to do larger cards using the Notecards and Envelopes, but then thought how cute they would look as sampler. So I grabbed an 8x8 frame, and went to work! I could have used the cards as they were and just put them in the frame...they are that cute. But, I chose to combine the June kit with the High Tide and Sailing Home Stamp Sets, and made some different cards, using the the card fronts from the kit. 

I love the ocean and the nautical feel of this kit. And, it coordinates so well with the two nautical stamp sets in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog. Another great feature of Paper Pumpkin! Did you know that July's kit is going to coordinate with three different stamp sets from the Annual Catalog, but more on that later. Here is my sampler:

This is a picture of it framed as I did decorate the frame too! Unfortunately, I can never get the framed picture to not have a glare, but just so you can see how cute the completed project is, I took the picture anyway!

 If you like my project, please leave me a comment. We could all use a little love now and again! Once you have commented, click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to the fabulous June's blog to see what fun alternate project she has to share with you!

Oh wait...don't go away just yet, read below for information on July's kit.

Until next time...Happy Craftin'!
