Paper Pumpkin - April & May

Hello! So I am a bit behind in posting my April and May Paper Pumpkin projects. I did actually have both the mother's and father's day ones done in time but I just didn't have time to post them. I think these were both so cute. I am loving how easy these projects are. Since my crafting time and my mojo have been on the outs lately, the Paper Pumpkin has saved the day. It's nice that everything is included in the kit for you saving so much time! I do try to make one project a little different than the ideas Stampin' Up! shares just to give you other ways to use the kit with your own supplies. But you certainly don't have to do that if you don't want to. I am now just waiting on my June kit. I had some problems with my credit card so it hasn't arrived yet. I'm hoping it does soon because I would love to use the June kit for my son's birthday party in July. So on to today's projects. I will post the April ones first. The April kit came with this really cute frame. Instead of just leaving the heart outline, I decided to add a picture of my son and gave this to my mother-in-law. I also decided to turn the belly band for the frame into a bag. I had seen this on another blog and thought this was a really cute idea. Then finally I used elements from the kit, plus some of my own to make a card. You can see the supplies I used for the card below it.

Stamps: April Paper Pumpkin
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Smokey Slate
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizazz, Crisp Cantaloupe
Accessories: April Paper Pumpkin kit, Natural 7/8 cotton ribbon, Crisp Cantaloupe ruffled ribbon, Decorative Dots embossing folder, Deco Label framelit dies, Very Vintage designer buttons

Now I have a couple of super quick cards I made with the May kit. I made the Father's Day cards for my husband and father-in-law and then I used the elements to make a birthday card for my husband. Again, it took me no time to make these cards. Even the birthday card where I used some of my own elements didn't take very long (once I figured out what I was going to do). And how cute is that little tag on the father's day card. I love it! I still have leftovers so I will definitely be using them on another card.
