My Paper Pumpkin - August 2015 Chalk It Up To Love Kit with Alternate Ideas!

I love My Paper Pumpkin!!! For those of you new to My Paper Pumpkin, it is a monthly kit that includes everything you need for a little crafty escape for only $19.95 a month.  Your kit will come with a stamp set, 1-2 mini ink pads, and all of the pre cut materials to make different projects every month.  I was having so much fun with my monthly kits that I signed up to be a demonstrator!

The August 2015 Kit titled Chalk it Up to Love came with all the supplies needed to make 6 cards with envelopes and 3 gift boxes with tags.  First I'll show you everything that came in the kit, then I'll show you what I made.

I love seeing this aqua tissue paper!

This month's mini ink pad is a white pigment ink.  That is yet another thing I love about My Paper Pumpkin.  You can really build a nice collection of different ink colors without having to purchase the large stamp pads.  
The photopolymer stamp set has 4 different sentiments and 3 different design accents.  All great additions to your stamp collection!

This is the bundle of all of the other kit materials with the instruction sheet.  Inside you will find...

3 sheets of die cuts to layer together to make 3 flowers

3 black fringe die cuts to roll up for the flower centers

3 black die cut sheets of tags & labels

3 die cut, pre-scored gift boxes with gold foil polka dots

6 pre-scored card bases - 3 each of 2 designs

Here's a close up of the card bases.  I love that gold foil!!!

6 envelopes and 6 die cut banners

And, last but not least... 3m sticky strips, Stampin' Dimensionals and black ribbon.  I just love that My Paper Pumpkin even includes the adhesive.  Everything you need for a creative escape in one cute red box :)

So, what did I create this month?

I love that gold foil and chalkboard look!  This month's kit is so cute and trendy!  I made 3 cards like this one and everything I used was from the kit with the exception of the Very Vanilla card base.  And, I made a video showing the kit contents and how I made the cards above.

After filming I kept right on crafting!  I made 2 more cards just like the one I made in the video and then I wanted to play with the cute pink cards with the gold bows and I created the card below. 

For this card I grabbed some Basic Black card stock and a metallic Gold Doilie.  I cut the bow card base in half, just like I did with the striped card above.  Then I matted it leaving a 1/4" border on Basic Black and mounted that on a Whisper White card base leaving a 1/4" border again.  So, my finished card was 5.5"x 4" a little smaller than a standard size.  For the banner I used the pink one from the kit and I hand cut the black card stock banner to be slightly larger, using the pink one as a guide.  Then I grabbed a gold doilie and layered it all together.  I used snail to adhere everything except the black stamped label die cut.  I popped that up with stampin' dimensionals.

 So far I have created 4 cards with my kit in these 2 designs.
