October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Alternative

My favorite day of the month is the day my Paper Pumpkin arrives from Stampin’ Up. Although Stampin’ Up includes instructions for beautiful cards I like to create my own designs. I just love the delicate lacey scallops on the edge of this card I wanted Night of Navy showing through the details so I cut a 1 inch strip and adhered it to the inside. I really like the way just adding a small strip of paper adds a finished look for the inside of this card.

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, and the holiday season is the perfect time to sign up.

Card Recipe:


  • Night of Navy strip 1 inch x 6¼ inches

Stamps and Thinlets:

  • Perennial Birthday stamp set (sentiment)
