UnBoxing & Alternative Card Idea #1: August 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit Giftable Greetings by Stampin' Up!

 I am so excited to show you guys my
August 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit!  

This month's kit is called "Giftable Greetings" and it is designed to create a boxed set of greeting cards that you can give as a gift!  I love giving sets of my handmade cards as gifts so I was beyond excited to create this month's projects!

In Paper Pumpkin's video below you can see everything included in the kit this month and how to create the projects as they were originally designed.

I made a bunch of cards following the instructions in the kit.  They are quick, easy & fun to make and they are so cute!  That is my kind of card!  In the video below, I share what comes in the kit & give you a little bow tying trick for the gift box.  I'm super bow tying challenged so I use any tricks I can :)

I love creating the projects as they are designed, but the real fun for me is coming up with other ways to use the materials we get in our kits.  Even after you create the projects that the kit is designed to make, you still have your stamp set & ink pad to use over & over again on other projects.  And, this month we had a lot of leftover bits to use on other projects.  I have a lot of leftover flower die cuts, sentiment ovals, leaf stickers and ribbon so you know I'm not going to let those go to waste!  I'm going to use them to create what I like to call "bonus cards."

In the video below, I share how I created this simple, quick & cute Congrats card using this month's stamp set, ink pad and some of the kit's leftover bits.
