I got a chance to play with my Paper Pumpkin Try it Kit last night. I am telling you what – I just adore the Paper Pumpkin kits so far! They are perfectly easy to put together and just right to make it your own creative little project!
So, when you get your kit – this is the project you will make – a small journal that is just the perfect size for putting in your purse to jot down notes, grocery lists, funny little things that the kids say….whatever you would like.
Everything you need is in the kit – literally! Even the instructions to make it look like this.
And just because I think it is interesting to note – this is the inside of the journal – it is small grid paper, so you could also use it for a sketch journal!
Now, the kit came with a brand new block, an Island Indigo ink spot, two stamps, two long pieces of Summer Starfruit baker’s twine, and 12 tiny butterfly stickers (LOVE THESE!).
There is NO minimum order! Plus, if you order $50 or more, I will send you a free tutorial to make 5 cards and a gift box using the Oh, Hello stamp set!
Now, I like to take what I have and let the inspiration flow, so this is the result of my own take on the journal with what I had on my desk. I mostly used the kit, I just added the main image stamp from Million Dollar Moments and let the butterflies float above her hand. I colored the main image with Gumball Green and Island Indigo.
Now, I couldn’t let those butterflies go to waste….so I saw a similar idea on Pinterest that inspired me to make these cards using some scraps on my desk. The stamps on these cards are from the first Paper Pumpkin kit I received in the mail. (I’ll show you that in my next post).
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a little Color Refresh! I love the new Color Refresh – I think it is invigorating and, as Carrie Cudney says, it exudes energy! It’s an exciting time to be a Stampin’ Up demonstrator!
What does this mean for you? If you want any of those discontinued colors, you had better grab them fast! I I predict many of the consumables (ribbons, buttons, etc.) will sell out before the new catalogue arrives!
Might as well get it when there’s free shipping!!!!
