Today I am sharing the alternate projects I came up with for the January 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit called Cute Conversations. Paper Pumpkin is the perfect solution for busy men and women who want a little time to themselves to create without having to invest in a craft room or come up with ideas themselves. At $19.95 plus tax each month, you get creativity delivered to your doorstep and a little time to create something wonderful before the next "to do" sweeps you away.
Individuals that subscribe for Paper Pumpkin with me receive project sheets each month with details on how to create alternative projects with their kit supplies. If there are additional supplies required, I let them know. Below are the projects I created with this month's kit. Let me know if you have any questions or sign up with me today to start receiving your inspiration in the mail!
Home Décor Options:
I chose to use just two colors of the hearts for my banner so that I could use black and white photos. I cut them out using the 2nd biggest heart in the Hearts Collection Framelits but you could use one of the hearts for a stencil as well if you didn't have the framelits. I stamped on the clothespins and the hearts using the stamp set and Watermelon Wonder Ink Spot. That's another perk of Paper Pumpkin -- you get to use our newest In Colors and play with products we don't normally sell like the Watermelon Wonder sequin trim!
Another home décor item was this collection for the Hello Life Project Rack. The great photos on this project were done by Heidi Hagman Photography (http://www.heidihagmanphotography.com/).
The other set of instructions in the kit was for treat holders. I chose to put a gift card in mine instead off a candy treat. I stamped the clothespins again.
This butterfly is cut from one of the hearts. I like the double banner at the bottom as well.
Here's another idea with the hearts and banners that I really liked.
You can use the hearts as a stencil and sponge in the ink.
You can insert a brad and make a flipper card.
You can stamp and punch out the sayings using other punches and then use the adhesive strips in the kit around the back of them to add a sequin trim. The bow on the bottom is the thread left over when you strip off the sequins.
I hope you find something useful in here. See you next month!
Paper Pumpkin is probably my favorite Stampin' Up! offering. As a demonstrator, I'm often having fun conducting classes but it's nice to take some every once in a while. Paper Pumpkin lets me be creative without having to design! That being said, I do design a few alternative ideas using supplies from the kit to send out to my customers that subscribe with me. If you are looking for a way to be creative at home at a great price, I highly recommend investing in Paper Pumpkin. From now until March 31st, you can purchase a pre-paid subscription for $55. Not only will you receive three months of Paper Pumpkin in the mail but you will also get to pick out a Sale-a-Bration item for free!
