The April 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit – You Are My Anchor is so amazing! To be honest, I first opened it and thought…..ehh small gift cards…..ehhhh beach theme and I live in Illinois. Then I started creating it and my mind went crazy!!! I thought about the greetings (you are my anchor, you are my lifesaver, etc) and how amazing and powerful they are! These cards are perfect for me to use on the treats for the Doctors and Nurses during my weekly baby appointments and to take to delivery. They would be great to take to the local Fire Department or Police. Teacher Appreciation Week is at the beginning of May and these would be perfect. If you gave your teacher a beach towel and sunscreen on the last day of school, this tag would fit perfectly! So many amazing ideas!
Look at all of this!!! There are a total of 20 cards and 4 gift boxes. It is just so much goodie and I had a TON leftover as well! This is just another reason I love Paper Pumpkin because you get SO MUCH! You can even try out Paper Pumpkin for half price for 2 months with the Promo Code: SAVEFIFTY0418 if you sign up before May 10th! Click here to sign up now!
These little cards were super simple to stamp and assemble. I have always found that stamping with all of the pieces still in the sheet is easier than popping them out first. Also, I used lots of twine to tie those anchors in the lower left corner and I still had tons leftover. I added a lot more gold hearts to the cards and even to the boxes because there were plenty. Be careful when stamping the birds (upper right) next to the lighthouse. The birds needs to be stamped on the white card part because it will smear off on the gold foil. For the two lighthouse cards, I added the greeting with a Stampin’ Dimensional on either end (far end) and not in the middle. This is so that it is smooth over the popped up lighthouse.
Here are all of the leftovers after I finished the kit. There are 2 full sheets of the labels and hearts and a few extras. I had a ton of the twine left and a few die cuts. There is just so much goodie! You can see all of the supplies when I unboxed the kit here!
Don’t forget that you can try out Paper Pumpkin for 2 months at half price (normally $19.95). Try it out and see if you like it. If anything you will get a clear block, 2 ink spots, and 2 sets of stamps! That’s a lot plus you get all of the supplies for the projects! Amazing!!! Click here to try it out!!!
