HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE!!!!! Here is to a great 2016!!! I thought I would share the December 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit with you today since it is called One Great Year!!! Now you might be a little surprised as the photo above because this is the December Paper Pumpkin Kit on my Facebook Page…..
While I thought this little desk calendar was adorable (check that out here), I just don’t have a need for a desk calendar and so I thought I would create the kit into cards! I was able to get 15 greeting cards out of this kit with all of the supplies. I used my own cardstock for the card bases and an all occasion stamp set but the rest is all from the kit!!!
Here are all of the goodies – Soft Suede Ink Pad, Months Stamp Set which will be great for memory keeping and more, and lots of banners and decorated paper!!!
Here are a few of the cards I created. As you can see some of the cards look almost just like the calendar just without the month on there. I used the gold banners as banner and as strips of gold. I even used some of the calendar pieces on the inside of the cards to write on. I used Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, and Hello Honey for the card bases and since Blackberry Bliss is so dark, I wanted to place a piece inside to write the greeting on. It worked out perfectly!!! I greetings came from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set and Crazy About You Stamp Set.
As you can see I used the backs of the calendars for greetings and such. I used the banners and flowers as decorations. I was able to create 15 total cards from this kit AND I still had Stampin’ Dimensionals, ribbon, and some gold banners left over. Plus, I have the ink pad and stamp set to use for other projects too! I love Paper Pumpkin!!!
