Seriously. . .

If you haven't heard yet, Stampin' Up! is now offering Paper Pumpkin, a monthly project kit! It is full of paper, stamps, ink, and anything else you need to create the project including a step-by-step instruction sheet. Some months it may be cards, at times it may be home decor. Each month it is a fabulous surprise with great projects that can be completed in about 30 minutes or less, and it is delivered directly to your mailbox! Be sure to check out Paper Pumpkin's website for more information, and to sign up! You can also sign up anytime by clicking on the Paper Pumpkin photo, or Join Now located on my right blog bar.

But don't let the fun stop there! If you join Paper Pumpkin with me, I will send you my monthly Paper Pumpkin newsletter with even MORE ideas of what you can do with your kit! Check out the Seriously kit with project instructions that are included to make 4 identical cards:
 Of course you are always welcome to use the supplies to make your own creations, but to give you even more ideas what else you can make, I will send you samples of more projects you can use with supplies provided in your kit! Here is a sample of projects made ALL with supplies from the kit (with the exception of plain white printer paper for the smash journal and adhesives).
I utilized almost EVERYTHING that came in the kit (including the tissue paper and the box it all came in)! I still had a few leftover items that I think I will be incorporating into a scrapbook page in the near future :)

For the smash journal, I simply added a few pages of plain white printer paper (the only item I used not included in the kit) and decorated the inside front with a pocket to hold stuff, as well as adhered an envelope (with flap tucked in) to the back to create an extra large pocket for stuff.
I also decided to turn one of the cards into a gift card holder:
And of course I had to decorate the envelopes to match!
What are you waiting for?! Join today!

  2. love your ideas! very clever and a wonderful use of everything in the kit. I hadn't thought about making the box into something to put a gift in. Also the journal is a cute idea too. Love the little banners.
