PPP Blog Hop: Batter Up


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 May Paper Pumpkin Kit: Batter Up


This month's kit made 9 cards, 3 each of 3 designs. They even threw in some Dubble Bubble bubble gum to keep with the theme! Here are the cards as designed:

I really liked this kit, and it works for my family. I have a grandson who is a freshman in high school. He is so good at baseball, he has already verbally committed to Oregon State. The first card is going to be for his mom for her upcoming birthday. The second card is going to that grandson for his birthday later this month. 

For my alternate project, other than the Thick Basic White card base, I used items from the kit and just rearranged them in a design that I liked. I will be using this for a birthday card  my grand nephew who also loves the game!

Of the original designs, I liked the card with the wood grain the least, that is why I chose to remake it into something that spoke to me. I did trim around the All Star words, just felt the border was too wide. Hope you like it. 

P.S. Chewing the gum while creating was inspirational!  

 I hope you have been inspired to get your kit out and create. Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Elizabeth's blog to see what homerun she created! So glad you could join us!


It would be awesome if you leave a comment on our projects along the way!! 

Until next time...Happy Craftin'!

The catch? They’re only available to purchase for a period of two years, so stock up on your favorite In Color supplies while you can!
