Fall in love with Paper Pumpkin!!

Helloooo!  My oh my oh my!!!  Have you seen the October Paper Pumpkin kit?!!  *Swoooons!*  It is absolutely stunning!  I do happen to be a sucker for all things Fall, but this kit is over the top Fall!  It makes 8 beautiful Fall shaker cards!!  It comes with an awesome stamp set, a chocolate chip ink spot and 3 bags of beautiful, sparkly sequins!!  Be still my heart!!  I opened my box and sat down immediately to make one of the cards!  I normally pull the kits all apart and make several different things from them, but this month's may stay in tact and get used for it's intended purpose!!  Here is my fun, sparkly fall card:

There are 3 different sizes of sequins!  Notice that each cut out leaf is a different color and has a pretty crackle background? There are 5 different sentiments in the stamp set plus that crackle stamp!  Did I mention over the top?!

It also comes with the foam strips you need to build the structure of the shaker kit and the die cut banners and labels shapes.

I don't know about you, but I hate to waste anything.  I try to always take a look at the packaging and see if it can be used as well to craft.  I thought the shapes around the labels from the sheet they were attached to had possibility!  I like to add fun little shapes behind things to create a layered look.  Here are the shapes I mean:

You can cut these off and use them for these cards or on another project!  Fun! :)

Here is what you can make with this months kit:


Ok, I am off to play more with these cards!  If you are interested in signing yourself up for a subscription to My Paper Pumpkin I'll include a link here for you!  You can get a monthly kit full of fun goodies too!  


Have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
