If you are not familiar with My Paper Pumpkin, it is a monthly subscription through Stampin' Up! When you subscribe you will receive a paper crafting kit every month which will include everything you need to create different paper crafts with full instructions. The projects are usually cards and occasionally 3D projects like gift boxes & gift bags. Every kit includes a stamp set and a mini ink pad that you can continue to use long after you "use up" your kit. I love getting my Paper Pumpkin Kit every month and I love sharing my ideas for alternate ways you can use your kit every month. If you are interested in learning more, click the Paper Pumpkin Perks & FAQs tab at the top of the page.
This is my last alternate idea using this month's Paper Pumpkin kit. I have not been able to put this kit away this month! I just keep reaching for it! I thought it would be fun to try to create a Project Life page using this month's kit and I ended up making 3 pages! I think I'm going to try to create a Project Life page using My Paper Pumpkin Kit every month. What do you think? Sound fun?
Here is my first page for Week 33 in my 2015 Project Life album. My 2015 album is kinda all over the place. My album last year was very structured. I had a 2 page spread for every week with an occasional insert or extra page for a holiday or event. This year, some weeks are one page, some are two, and this one is three! I also am jumping all over the place in time. I have lots of gaps that I need to fill in so whenever I have time I just pick a week at random.
So, this is Week 33: Monday August 10th - Sunday August 16th
In this video, I share a closer look at this page and a quick look at all of the cards I made using this month's Paper Pumpkin kit. I also announce my giveaway in the video. You can Click Here to enter to win the Stamp Set from this month's kit!
After I finished the video, I kept crafting:) I made these two pages to finish up week 33. I had lots of photos that I loved for Wednesday that week, so that day got it's own page.
My last page for week 33 covers Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I used the stamp set below to stamp the days of the week on little paper flags that I hand cut from one of the card bases in this month's kit.
I love this stamp set! I use it all of the time in my project life album and it is great in my planner, too!
These are the papers I pulled from my stash to create these pages with my Paper Pumpkin Kit. I will have all of the products I used to create these pages listed below with links to my online store. If you shop with me I love to send out thank you cards, so make sure you don't check the no contact box so I can send you one :)
