The other two projects for my Q2 Paper Princesses kits are below.  I really focused on the October kit since I know it was the set most didn't know what to do with.  The stamps we received in August (Bicycle and Thank You banner) and September (Wahoo & You Did It) were super easy to create straightforward cards with.  I also had a new customer join so I wanted to do something with the starter kit since everyone has that too.
 

Project One: Mini Note Book

This little project is something I needed for my purse.  Sometimes cell phones go out or you are driving and it's easier to jot a note than try to type on the phone (if you were born after 1990). 
 
The little green banner is the To Do banner stamped on Gumball Green cardstock.  Cut it out and turn it over - it creates an easy banner piece with perfectly equal tips and could be used on any project in any color. 

 
The book is bound with a 3/8 Bind-It-All coil and the pages on the inside are cut from the October
kit's paper role and adhered with adhesive.
 
 
Supplies:
Cardstock/DSP: Gumball Green, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Ink; Gumball Green
Stamp Set: October Paper Pumpkin Kit
Accessories:  Bind-It-All (non-SU), Big Shot & Cutting Mats, Magnetic Platform, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Paper Snips, Dimensionals, and Adhesive
 
The second project uses the Paper Pumpkin Starter kit along with products from the October Paper Pumpkin Kit.    I originally intended to stamp the sentiment on the lined paper but neglected to use my Stamp-a-Majig so it was horribly crooked.  You could also use a 1/8 hold punch and your Paper Snips to create a spiral notebook look to this card too - I just saw that idea and would have used it if I'd seen it earlier!  I did sponge the edges of everything using the Stampin' Spot that came with the August kit.  You could also do this card with the Basic Gray included in the Starter kit.
 
Anyhow, I love this layout and color combo.  The splatter works so nice in the corners!  The flower itself is from the Pansy punch and then I bent the individual leaves in half to create the dimension I was looking for.  As for the button, I removed two threads from the leftover piece of Calypso twine that came with the October kit and threaded it through the Naturals button.  Tie it in a bow and trim the ends.  Attach with a dimensional.
