January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Samples - Adoring Arrows

Hello everyone!  Do you ever have those weeks where you know you only need 10 minutes to do something but you can't find 10 uninterrupted minutes to do it?  I have been trying to get my video recorded for my Paper Pumpkin samples since it came last Friday and today I finally found a way to amuse my 2 year old son long enough to get it recorded and I don't think you'll even hear him on it!

This month's Paper Pumpkin kit was called Adoring Arrows.  I love this kit but it works perfectly for those moms and dads out there that like to make Valentine's treats with their kids for school or co-workers that like to make treats for holidays or neighbors that just like to say "hey, thanks".

This stamp set has it all for this season.  I love how well it will coordinate with our Sending Love products in the Occasions mini and I will be posting another round of samples using that product line next week.

For now, let's take a look at what I made and see if it's something you will use like I will!


For the Valentine's Day card, I took an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Blushing Bride and folded it for the card.  I layered the banners on the card using glue dots.  I made the arrow using the pieces in the kit and laid it on the card, using one glue dot to hold the middle in place. Stamp your saying, not as hard as I did (see my added love mark) and then put the heart on the card with a dimensional on each side of the dowel so it is flat. 



The second card is a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Calypso ink.  I mounted the banners and heart on the 3 x 4 piece of Watermelon Wonder and layered it on the card using dimensionals.  Quick and easy.  This would look great with some gold accents like sequins or metallic enamel shapes.

Finally, the gift card holder which was born out of an idea to create a flat treat holder that would mail. 


Check out this video to see how I made this cute gift card holder!


WHAT IS PAPER PUMPKIN?

They tell you to sell what you love and I love Paper Pumpkin.  It lets me show people that I am thinking of them while taking much needed time for myself to do something I love.  I'd love to see if it's the crafting solution for you as well! 

Paper Pumpkin is creativity in a box.  It costs $19.95 plus tax and ships to your mailbox once a month.  It contains everything you need for your own creative escape.  Besides the instructions and pieces for the cards or project, it also contains ink and photopolymer stamps and usually the adhesive you need as well.  My subscribers will also get a project sheet with tips and additional ideas and instructions that they can make with the supplies in the kits and sometimes some supplemental supplies.  They also are invited to participate in a free Paper Pumpkin Playdates to make their kits using any of my additional supplies like framelits and punches!  It's a wonderful program and I'd love for you to try it out!  Sign up by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit!
