Punny Paper Pumpkin Kit

I got another full Paper Pumpkin kit assembled and ready to mail out! This was December's kit and not one I would have chosen, but in the end this worked out really nicely. 

In January, I made the first banana card (my own way) so there were only two left to make this day. Sometimes I used the smiley faces, sometimes I went a bit less silly.

Then I made these three, all different greetings.

For this one, I knew I didn't have a use for the toast and eggs together, with the speech bubbles, the way it was designed. But I still found a cute way to use the toast itself, and the eggs themselves! 

and I still have this much left over for more projects!! 

I mean really, Paper Pumpkin kits are totally worth the price! Next month's kit will feature the brand new In Colors AND a chance to win a $25 voucher. Sign up (HERE) by May 10 to get it shipped straight to your door!

Paper Pumpkin Scraps!

I set a goal this January to finish off my Paper Pumpkin kits, entirely. I'm at 3 now, of.... a ton. So that cute March kit I've already shown you earlier in April? I made two final cards with it's scraps (and I still have three greeting strips left!!) that I am sharing with you today! 

This first card uses the latest from Freshly Made Sketches

And this second just uses up the scraps! Yeay!! 
Two more cards, ready to be sent!

Here's another very fun scrapbook layout for you! This is page one, of a high school dance my daughter went to earlier this year. I used THIS sketch I found on Pinterest for the layout and I love the fun randomness of it all for her. Page two has the journaling, plus the group, and it's boring straight lines, lol, so I didn't share that one too.

ALL in the long-retired MDS
Stamps: Bloomin' Marvelous
Ink: Daffodil Delight
Paper: So Saffron Soft Flower, White mats,
Accessories: Burlap Ribbon, Saffron grosgrain ribbon, Paper Daisies, Pearl, Button Latte
Journaling Font: Goudy Old Style, French Script

Anyway, this was considered "taking a break", haha, so back to recording Disney!!

Minnie Mouse!

Happy Monday to you! I have some more Disney scrapping to share today. I am up to 73 pages done and one more laid out! And I have SO much more to do!!

Mostly with these pages I want the photos and story the focus of the page, and sometimes I'm using the long-retired MDS to cram a ton of photos on a page. But sometimes I get to really play with some paper and accessories! Here's an example of that:  

Paper: Rococo Rose (retired), Basic White, Petals & Paisley's DP (retired in 2006)
Accessories: Paper Daisies (retired), Glitter Enamel Dots (retired)
Journaling Font: Minnie

Everything on this page is lonnng retired. The base is only a year out, but the DP is kind of ancient, lol, and it's good to use up! ha! 
The sketch is from HERE tho I turned it sideways to work with my photos.  

And speaking of retired product, you should know the Last Chance list ends May 2 and that is only two weeks away! You can view it all, and place your order, by clicking on the image below!

March Paper Pumpkin!

Happy Friday! 

Going along with yesterday's theme, I made up my entire Paper Pumpkin kit the other night, in less than an hour. Sometimes I do my own thing with the supplies and sometimes I "follow directions". This time it was much closer to the second, because I am short on time but in need of cards! I forgot about the ribbon, lol, so that didn't make it on there. And I only put rhinestones on cards I knew I was sending to girls, lol. But nine quick cards are done, and I love how they look! 

This first card here I forgot the leafy diecuts, lol... 

On these, I cut the white strip in half to show more of the watercolored background.
 and here I left the pink strip off one. 
And here is everything left over when I finished the kit!! 
Fun, huh?? 

Here is the sneak peek to next month's kit!

If you're interested in signing up for a Paper Pumpkin subscription, click on the pumpkin on my side bar, or you can click right HERE.
This next one features all the brand new In Colors, with a Basic Gray ink spot, with enough supplies to make ten full size cards, and ten gift card holders!
AND, this time, 200 Paper Pumpkin boxes will have a Golden Voucher for $25 in Stampin' Up! product!! 
Just something to think about...! haha! 

Enjoy your Easter weekend!
