Paper Pumpkin Love!!!

Hello!!  Happy Monday to you!  I have been running around all over the place today checking things off my To Do list!  Yay!  I just love productivity!! One of the things I did today was to open this month's My Paper Pumpkin and play!  It has been sitting on my table for several days unopened and calling to me!!  I must say that I think this month's kit may be my very favorite of all time PP kit!!!!  It is a package of 5 (!!!) plain gift bags just waiting to be dressed up and dolled up!  The kit comes with all of this fun stuff:

Let me open it and show you all the goodies:

You get 5 bags, the adorable stamps (have I mentioned I have a thing for polka dots {{Scoooooore!!}}), a Stampin' Spot, all kinds of embellishments, and ribbon for your bag handles!

Close up of the stamps and spot.  Honestly, just between you and I, I am not crazy about the clear stamps.  They are stinky, but I do LOOOOOVE these patterns so I will plug my nose and stamp happily with these lil' cuties!! 

Ok, here is one of the bags I dressed up!  I used lots of goodies from the kit, but also added a few of my own.  The gift bag is made from sturdy thick paper and comes in that beautiful Baked Brown Sugar color.  *swooons!*   It is a good size to hold some nice goodies!

Here it is laying flat.  Before stamping I randomly blotted off the inked stamp because I wanted to give the images a worn look.  I really like the way they came out.

Here is a close up of the embellishment that I added to the bag once I finished my stamping.  

No gift is complete without a little card and what better than a card that matches?!!  I carried the theme through by using he stamps and the same colors. The card measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".

Here they are together!  I cannot wait to dress up the rest of these bags!  I have lots of ideas running through my head!

I am finding that I am really enjoying the Paper Pumpkin kits!  They are perfect for a quick craft and have really been a lot of fun!  If you would like to receive My Paper Pumpkin too it is easy as can be to sign up!  Click this picture for more information!

Oh!  Guess I forgot to mention that if you sign up before March 31st you also receive a package of free markers! :)

Ok, I better get back to my To Do list!  I will be back soonest with more to share!  Have a wonderful day!

Such a cute project and gift ensemble. I'm glad you explained about wiping off the stamp a little bit. I though that you didn't stamp it right. ;) I should have known better since you're such a fabulous stamper.

This is too cute for words! I just love what you've made with it - stinky? LOL - I guess you could use one of those clothespins, LOL!
