October's Paper Pumpkin kit arrived. It's a pretty kit! GREAT NEWS, every kit generates an extra dollar toward Breast cancer research. Win/win. Here are a few of the alternates I created with this months kit.
Succulents! These little beauties are so on trend right now. I love this July Paper Pumpkin' kit and also the fact that it is perfectly timed with this succulent trend. I think it is my favorite PP kit to date. I sat down last weekend to craft and used up the entire kit contents in one sitting. Guess I'll be buying a replacement kit.
Here are all of my alternates. I only made one card with the suggested template — all of the other projects came together easily just playing around. And here is a link to more alternates for this kit on pinterest.
I switched up the colors for few more projects adding just a little Bermuda Bay to the color palette.

I never enter contests but am thinking I will do this more in the future. Not that I need a reason to create a card but it was fun to have a few parameters and thought if I can win a prize for making cards then why not try? I created these cards for Stampin' Up!'s June demo contest #punchitup. You can search that hashtag on pinterest to see the many other entries. Contest rules were as follows:
Demos only: Create a project using at least two of the four punches listed below. Then post your project on Pinterest using the hashtag #punchitup.
130698: Pansy Punch
133784: Hearts Border Punch
133785: Fun Flower Punch
133786: Sweetheart Punch
I used the Sweetheart and Heart borders punch, and a few new products from the 2015 Annual catalog. Fingers crossed!
Occasionally I'll post cards that are not related to a club or an event. I'll likely do this more in the coming months. I made these cards so send to my Utah card club as inspiration for them. These cards use the BIG DAY sale-a-bration stamp set. This is a really versatile stamp set that is fun and easy to use. The template for both cards is fairly similar so it is simple to swap out and change up the colors to get two completely different looking cards. Supplies are listed below.
Note: on these cards I used the SU blendabilities markers which are currently unavailable. To recreate you can color these image with copic markers or watercolor with SU classic ink.
I miss my craft room. It may be a few months before I get my supply back. And I'm jonesing... I did pack a few things I could create with for the apartment. I sat down this week to make Kylene a birthday card and a few thank you cards. I figure that I am going to try the card a week challenge again. I was beyond happy to have a paper pumpkin kit on hand that I could work with. I made the three Thank You cards following the exact instructions from the kit - see bottom photo. The Birthday card (above) and the tags are alternate projects I made up adding a little bit of ink and ribbon. Learn more about paper pumpkin here.
Happy Birthday Ky! I hope you had a great party and a wonderful birthday. You are an amazing person. Much love!
