Paper Pumpkin Alternative Cards


I did not add a whole lot of materials other than card stock when I made these cards from the items in the September Paper Pumpkin kit.  On the first one, I added Basic Black and Gorgeous Grape card stock, Old Olive thread and White craft ink...


I cut down one of the goodie boxes and used it as a pocket on the inside of this card attaching it with tear and tape adhesive.


The second card also uses a Gorgeous Grape card stock base along with some added Basic Gray card stock and linen thread.


I hope you enjoyed the alternative ideas!  
The next two months kits will coordinate so you won't want to miss out on them.  Be sure to sign up for yours before November 10th!

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Layout


As promised, I have an alternative project idea for you using the September Paper Pumpkin kit today (and tomorrow)...the first picture is of the little goodie boxes that the kit is designed for - it will make 20 goodie boxes...


I cut down a box for a card that you will see tomorrow and had some parts of it left so I used it on the 12" x 12" scrapbook layout below as well.  In addition to the pieces from the kit, I added some Mercury Glass designer acetate and Noble Peacock Foil Sheets in the background and Smoky Slate and Basic Gray card stock.


Tomorrow I will have a couple card ideas for you...

Grade 2


Trying to get ahead of the game for spring, I had been going through my senior's scrapbook albums and pulling out the school picture pages a while ago when I realized there were some missing.  That started a whole new project of going through tubs of photos looking for what was missing!  I think I found everything I needed though..


It turns out I had not scrapped a few things so here is the senior class in second grade using the Follow Your Art designer series paper and embellishments.  I also used the Large Letters and Large Numbers framelits dies for the title...


Supplies:
Follow Your Art dsp
Follow Your Art embellishments
Pacific Point, Basic Gray, Pool Party, Whisper White card stock
Large Letters and Large Numbers dies

Hammered Grapefruit Birthday


I didn't really hammer a grapefruit for this card, I used the Hammered metal 3d embossing folder on some Grapefruit Grove foil paper for the background of the card...


This one has lots of layers and different elements.  In addition to the embossing, I used the Frosted Frames dies, Rectangle stitched framelits and Stitched shapes framelits dies for some of the layers along with the Garden Lane designer series paper.


To complete it, I added some burlap ribbon and metallic pearls.

Grapefruit Grove, Soft Seafoam ink

Fundraiser Baskets


The projects I have to share with you today not terribly exciting - they are decorated card baskets that I have recently used for donations to fundraisers.  Each one has lots of handmade cards inside, most of which you have seen on the blog before but I thought I would share the decorations on the baskets this time...


The first one uses a couple pieces of  2" x 12" Noble Peacock specialty designer series paper wrapped around it like a belly band and then it is covered with gold satin ribbon around it.  Pretty simple, but it adds to the plain basket...


The second is a wooden crate that I found in the perfect size to fill with cards and I thought it fit in with the fundraiser theme of The Great Outdoors when I decorated it it...


I used some striped burlap ribbon around the whole crate and then added another piece around some Soft Suede card stock that was embossed with the pinewood planks folder.

Then, I added two layers of die cut Stitched Nested framelits - the top one was stamped with the Rustic Retreat stamp set and colored in with markers.
