May Paper Pumpkin Pocket Page

In my last post, I showed you a pocket page that I created with my current Paper Pumpkin kit. Today, I thought I'd share last month's Paper Pumpkin kit. First, here is how the kit was designed.


I did make one of each of these.  Then, I created this pocket page using the supplies for one bag and one card.



I used Stampin Up's fringe scissors to create the ruffled border. Super fun!




I used the rest of the kit for birthday cards and bags, just not exactly the way the instructions said. I found a ton of great ideas on Pinterest.

June Paper Pumpkin Happy Thoughts Project Life Page

The June Paper Pumpkin kits have been sent out. If you haven't seen it yet, here are the two different cards that you can make with the kit. There are enough pre-cut supplies to create four of each card.


Aren't the colors great?  And I love how layered the cards are. Very nice! I made one of each card and then decided to make alternate projects with the rest. My first one is a project life style page.



I was excited that the colors worked so well with my beach pictures from a few years ago. It is nice to have them printed and in the book. And the best part is that I only used the supplies for two cards.  I still have a ton of kit left to play with. I'll be back soon to show you how I decided to use it.

If you are interested in subscribing to Stampin' Up's Paper Pumpkin kits, just click the red Paper Pumpkin icon in the side bar. Be sure to choose me as your demonstrator and then check back each month for alternate ways to use your kit.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good Bye School

It is my seniors' last week of school. Bittersweet. While I will miss them, it is time. We are all tired and ready for summer. My own kiddos have another couple of weeks until summer. They, too, are tired and ready. Fortunately, there are lots of end-of-the-year activities to keep them busy. Awards programs, for example. This layout is my youngest's first grade awards program and my oldest son's final band concert.

Good Bye School

For the three cards on this page, I used a variety of pieces from The ScrapRoom's May Project Life and Flavors of the Month kits. I love how well several of them coordinated this month.



I hope your summer is drawing near as well. See you soon with more May layouts.
