Same thing with this kit if you make cards. Okay, okay I do not know ALL of this for sure!

    September Paper Pumpkin Alternative Ohhh I am loving this September Paper Pumpkin Alternative AND the whole kit. Those pumpkin and gourd treat holders. So much fall fun to be had! I can not take total credit for this one. There was an alternative idea on the back of the directions. We started there, added some leaves, cut up the wrapped wire, Tah-DA Some of the leaves are from the Kit itself. The three Crumb Cake ones are fussy cut and added to the front to match the inside. Adding in a cardbase in Crumb Cake and a Pumpkin Pie layer. The four panels are pieces of the treat packaging cut…

    Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Alternatives.

    Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Here is our first look at the Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Alternatives. Today there is three and I am excited there are three more tomorrow. This one uses the flagged end strips, but I wanted to extend their life. So I cut them in half. That way I could get more color AND add to another card later. I will admit that this group of sentiments are my favorite. I wanted to use them EVERY TIME!! Where there is hope, there is faith, where there is faith, miracles happen. It rings true for several things. Cancer survivors, parents of special needs, and especially those that have…

    You are Amazing Paper Pumpkin alternatives.

    You are Amazing Paper Pumpkin You are Amazing with Paper Pumpkin from June. I somehow missed these alternatives. However, knew that you would not mind if I shared them anyway. Here is what I was thinking. Using vellum I would pick an embossing folder and do a different background. So really this could be ANY background. Yes, I sure did go with all those beautiful 2021-2023 In-Colors. Here is my first question… Do you like with the Basic White layer or without?? I am going to be honest here, I like them both. The Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent only have the cardbase, vellum, sentiment and leaf piece. Which by…
