October 2015 Paper Pumpkin - Blissful Bouquet Samples

Here I am, with your monthly dose of Paper Pumpkin inspiration.  We survived Halloween and I'm excited to get a little quality time with my Seasonal Snapshot Project Life kit to help chronicle our Autumn so far!  But, before I can scrapbook my pumpkins, I wanted to get my Paper Pumpkins created.

As a subscriber to Paper Pumpkin, you receive a kit in the mail with everything you need to create great cards or other projects.  The kit has a photopolymer stamp set, ink spot, pre-cut cardstock and embellishments, and instructions.  As a first time subscriber, you also get a clear block to use with the stamp set.  The kits are $19.95 (plus tax) and come right to your door in a great red box.

The October kit was called Blissful Bouquet.  It had supplies to make three each of these cards (3 full cards, 3 notecards, and 3 love notes) with three different sayings.


Full Card:

Love Note:

As a subscriber to my group of Paper Pumpkineers, I also create additional projects and give you the detailed instructions on how to replicate them.  Sometimes they use just kit contents and other times they use additional supplies, like pearls or other inks.

Card Ideas:

Gift Card Ideas:
Using one of the large envelopes in the kit.


Using the square pillow box thinlits.

Mini Book Idea:  I used the stamp set from the September 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit on this project since most of my customers had both kits!

Basic Construction with two love note envelopes.

 Insert love note and 3 x 3 yellow cardstock piece.

Decorate the cover with a 3 x 3 photo and the half banner on dimensionals.

Decorate the inserts.

If you are interested in joining my Paper Pumpkin group, please visit and start receiving your tutorial sheets with the November kit later this month!  Or, if you already got your October kit and made it, you can purchase a refill at my Online store using hostess code 9GVCUBHA and get the instruction sheets as well for free.

Have a craftastic day,
