September Paper Pumpkin Layout Idea

As I mentioned yesterday, the September Paper Pumpkin kit for meant to create little boxes like the picture below.  I showed you a few card ideas I came up with in the post yesterday and today I have a scrapbook layout idea for you as well.


I chose a piece of 12" x 12" Evergreen Elegance for my background and added some designer series paper from a collection called Eden's Garden which is a sneak peek product for you.  The collection will be available November 2nd...


I used two different designs from the collection and then added some negative leaf pieces that I cut down from a full sheet and added the veins of the leaves with stamps.  


My plan for this layout is to use it for one of my high school age children's class pictures for this year.





You can see the items that were in the kit below minus the stamp set and ink.  If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can order refills until supplies are gone by going here. If you are not a subscriber yet and would like to order the November kit, you can go right here.

September Paper Pumpkin Alternative Cards


The September Paper Pumpkin kit was full of pieces for cute little gift boxes like the one shown in the first picture below. There were enough pieces to make 12 of these cuties in 4 different colors...


I only made one box and chose to do some other things 
with the pieces...


The top two cards are made using the negative part of the piece of paper that had leaves to pop out of. I cut down the sheet for the one on the left and added it to the card stock, then I stamped the veins of the leaves using the stamp set included in the kit.  For the one on the right, I used the same negative piece and sponged Crushed Curry, Cinnamon Cider and Soft Succulent ink before stamping the veins on the leaves.


Next, I cut apart some of the boxes and used a few other pieces in the kit to put the next two cards together, to be honest, these are my least favorite of the six alternative cards that I created...


Finally, I stamped the leaves and veins on card stock along with a sentiment creating two single layer cards that are very simple.

You can see the items that were in the kit below minus the stamp set and ink.  If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can order refills until supplies are gone by going here. If you are not a subscriber yet and would like to order the November kit, you can go right here.
