March Paper Pumpkin!

Hello! Long time no see. I didn't realize it has been quite so long that I've posted. As usual, things are busy busy. We have baby #2 on the way so I've been a little more tired than usual, chasing a toddler and dealing with the pregnancy symptoms. We just found out this week that baby #2 is a girl so that is very exciting!! (Not so exciting for my wallet, haha!)

Anyway, for my lack of posts, I will show you 3 cards today. They all use the March Paper Pumpkin kit plus a few other random things from my stash. If you haven't heard about My Paper Pumpkin, check out the Paper Pumpkin website for more info. You get a package each month filled with goodies to make cards, gift bags, etc. Stampin' Up! gives you all of the supplies you need to make the project that month. I just recently signed up and I'm so glad I did. I had so much fun with it. These kits are great for when you are busy and just don't have the time to create. Everything is there for you and it takes the guess work out of creating something. Of course, you also have the opportunity to use any other supplies you have to make it your own. Which is what I did with this month's paper pumpkin.

The first card is the example they show you in the kit. The next 2 cards are ones that I came up using my own supplies. I just love all of the items that came in the kit this month. The wood sentiment pieces are so cool. And of course you can't go wrong with glitter dots. And the biggest bonus of it all is that all 3 of these cards only took me a half hour to do. The first card probably only took me 5 minutes but it just looks so cute!! Also included in the kit are envelopes and the gold envelope liners. My plan is to have 1 or 2 posts each month showcasing the Paper Pumpkin kit that month plus alternative ideas for the kit. So stay tuned!!

If you are interested in signing up and have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I don't know why I waited so long to sign up. It's been so fun waiting for this to arrive the past 2 months. (I have yet to play with the starter kit; it's next on my list). And as an additional bonus if you sign up before March 31st, you get a free marker set. How cool is that!!

Thanks for stopping by!
