July Paper Pumpkin-A Couple Alternatives

Paper Pumpkin has evolved into a fantastic box of fun!  I just can't wait for it to be delivered each month!  I am one of those who avoids all social media about the kits until I get mine.

Paper Pumpkin has been innovative in trying some new ideas, too.  They have had kits inspired by Sara and Shelli, leaders of the company.  They have had kits that coordinate with stamp sets in the catalog.  The July kit coordinates with not just one suite in the catalog, but 3!  The On My Mind kit coordinates with the Woven Thread Suite, the Garden Lane Suite, and the Come Sail Away Suite!

Here's a video from Stampin' Up! that shows all about the kit.


Here's a picture of my cards made using the directions provided.

July 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit by Jo Anne Hewins

Those cards are so cute.  You get enough supplies to make 3 of each card for a total of 9.  Of course, it's also fun to come up with some of your own designs.  I had to try!

July 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Garden Lane by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card, I used the Pear Pizzazz circle provided for another card.  The sentiment is from the On My Mind stamp set in the kit and is stamped in Pear Pizzazz.

July 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Come Sail Away by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card, I added in some of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  The saying and shell are from the On My Mind stamp set.  Some of the Linen Thread is added behind the banner.  I'm liking the simplicity of this card!

July 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Woven Heirlooms by Jo Anne Hewins

The background of this card is stamped, some full force and some stamped off, using the Woven Heirlooms stamp set.  I added some of the patterned paper from the kit and made a label using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

All of these cards can be made in minutes!  It's so fun!
