Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Woo Hooo … I had fun creating these projects last night, if fact, I have 3 to share with you today. Yesterday I shared the January Paper Pumpkin video, so today I wanted to share with you my alternative projects.
Lets begin with the Paper Pumpkin itself … this cute little pillow box was fun to make and fun to stuff with candy!!
Didn’t really change anything on this little project except that I stamped the hearts on the circle background. The hearts come in the stamp set (there are a lot of cute stamps in this set!).
My next project is an Alternative to the kit … LOL, it’s actually a mistake!! I was watching TV and not reading the instructions a glued two of the pillow boxes together. So as I tell my stampin’ friends … “there are not mistakes in stamping, just opportunities to embellish”. So here is what I came up with ….
I remembered those circle fold cards, so I scored my boxes above the “pre-scored” line, then cut them down to sides so I could fold the flaps in … it worked beautifully. I had to decorate my box with those cute little Chameleons. The heart in the background and the pretty heart embellishments all come with the kit, as does my greeting.
I finished off this sweet little package of treats with the Dotted Swiss Ribbon … I just love the way this little boo-boo turned out!! That brings me to the card that I made. My blog followers may recognized this layout …
I told you that I loved those little chameleons, I just had to use them again … mainly because I wanted to use the greeting “You’re One-In-A Chameleon” … lol. Again, the heart embellishments are from the kit but the large heart (although there is one in the kit) I used the “All My Love” Designer Series paper and the “Be Mine” Stitched Framelit to cut it out.
The “I” comes from the “Large Numbers” framelits and the “YOU” is from the “Celebrate You” Thinlets which were FREE during Sale-a-bration last year! This year I’m using the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack.
Hope you enjoyed todays card and projects. When you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, don’t be afraid to use it with other stamp set and accessories you already have. This one coordinates with the “Animal Outing” stamp set.
Thank you for dropping in on me today. Have a great day … and I hope it’s triple the fun!!
