Country Home Coordination

While playing with the August 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit, I was wanting another image to play with, and naturally, the Country Home stamp set was a clear winner! I loved playing with the coordinating colors from the Paper Pumpkin kit! I used the aqua painter to paint the images both on the front and the inside! Oh my goodness I love the inside of this card!

The paper I used on the front of the card is from the upcoming Holiday Catalog (NEXT WEEK!!!) called "Come to Gather". And while I love the bold colors of Fall, I also love the simplicity of soft neutrals!

 I made this card two ways, and I really like them both! Which one do you like best? The simple "thankful", the Birch background OR the bold Fall color?

Paper Pumpkin August 2019 - The Gift of Fall

In today's Facebook Live video tutorial, I show you the stunning "The Gift of Fall" Paper Pumpkin kit for August 2019. It is so gorgeous!!! I've always loved the vibrant colors of Fall! We won't get those Fall colors (or drop in temperatures!) in Houston for a while, but there has been a small shift that gives us hope!

These alternate projects were made using ONLY the supplies included in the Paper Pumpkin kit as well as the Gift of Fall add-on card pack. Well, I did add some cardstock and new DSP to that middle card. ;) The refill is now available for purchase to current subscribers for only $10! The refill does NOT include the stamp set or the ink spot, so I highly recommend purchasing the Country Home stamp set that coordinates BEAUTIFULLY!

Paper Pumpkin Alternatives Week

The weirdest part about living in Houston, TX is the seasons - or lack thereof.

We have the killer hot summer (when everyone makes their TEXodus in order to survive) and the crazy hurricane season. I'm not even kidding! But something funny happened this past weekend. It actually felt like FALL!!!

The kids have been in school for a week now, it finally dipped under 100 degrees (for about a minute) and with football on TV all Saturday, it ACTUALLY felt like Fall, and that makes fall crafting soooo much easier!!! And there's nothing easier than our all-inclusive monthly Paper Pumpkin kits!

The Gift of Fall

This month's Paper Pumpkin kit contains everything you need to make 6 BEAUTIFUL gift bags! I made two right away and filled them full of goodies and a handmade card for both of my kids to make their back-to-school special. If you purchase the add-on for only $10 you'll also be able to make 24 gorgeous cards! (P.S. They LOVED the card and the personal message inside! It made them feel so special! It was a great way to get them to listen while I told them how awesome they are!)

Awesome Kids

All week long I will be showing you what I have been creating with this amazing kit so you'll never run out of ideas! I discovered that the Country Home stamp set coordinates BEAUTIFULLY with these Fall projects!
