October paper Pumpkin Alternative

My favorite day of the month is the day my Paper Pumpkin arrives from Stampin’ Up. I gave my husband the new Iphone as an early Christmas present with the “hidden” agenda he could take my photos for me because he has a better phone…consequently you can see every mistake. The gold leaf I painted with our new Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint was meant to be a solid gold, and actually looks solid to the naked I but unfortunately the new camera on his phone can see the white peeking through the gold.

Anyway…I liked changing things up a bit by adding a piece of the Garden Impressions DSP over the Blackberry Bliss layer of the tri-fold card, the colors blend beautifully with the Coastal Cabana branches included in the kit.

Paper Pumpkin kits have been arriving at my home in the middle of the month for over a year now and I have loved every one of them and the price is so reasonable at only $20.00/month (including shipping). Kits are complete with EVERYTHING you need to complete the projects on the instructions including adhesives, you don’t even need scissors. It’s easy to add some of your own supplies to change things up a little like I have. You can cancel anytime, the holiday season is the perfect time to join this amazing club.
