Today I am going to show you how I took a kit (My Paper Pumpkin August Kit) and created as the instructions showed AND then added my own flare! First things first, check out this amazing August Kit!
When I first opened my Paper Pumpkin Kit, I was WOWED by all of the supplies! There were 2 each of the die cut greetings on the left, 4 large card bases and envelopes, 4 small card bases and envelopes, Stamps, PINK Sequins (yes, I squealed when I saw these), Brads, Hello Honey Ink, twine, die cut tags and circle, and 4 each of the hearts and stars cards. To put it short….LOTS of goodies! Here are the samples that I created just like the instructions!!!
I just love these cards! They are super cute, polka dots, sequin bling and so much more! But after creating all of these cards, I had so much left over…..more sequins, more die cut greetings, tags and other items! I grabbed 2 pieces of Whisper White and 2 pieces of Strawberry Slush and cut them in half to make more cards and here is what I got!
I squealed again with the adorableness of the cards on the left. Pink ombre dots with sequins…..LOVE! How amazing is that? I got 8 cards and envelopes created just like the kit shows and an additional 8 cards! I could have created even more cards if I added in a few more pieces of cardstock and used fewer layers on each card. Have you ever taken a kit and done your own thing? I do enjoy following the samples provided but sometimes I really think outside the box and come up with some amazing projects!!! PS: I still have more circles and tags left over (stamps and ink too)! I love My Paper Pumpkin! All of this was created for $19.95!
