PPP Blog Hop: Sending Good Thoughts


Hello and welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We love Paper Pumpkin. Sometimes we like to make it the way the kit comes, and sometimes, we like to change it up!! So if you hop along with us, you will see some alternative projects using some or all of the Paper Pumpkin kit contents. Sometimes we mix and match with some of the other fabulous Stampin' Up! products.

I love, love, love the larger seagull in the kit. I don't know why, but think he is so cute! Anyway, whatever the reason, I wanted to make him the focal point of my card. So here he is....

This kit has so many cute stamps, don't forget the inside:

Here is how I got the circle and other background piece. I cut the punched piece in half, so it would stick out behind the circle. 

Thanks for hanging out with me. Let's hop on over to Janey's blog and see how she used this kit in a different way....
