A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- Layered Leaves


Hello Stampers and Papercrafters!  Welcome to the September A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!! A number of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the monthly kit.  I'm so thrilled to have you stop by to check out my altered creation for today. 


This month's hop features the fun and fall-ish "Layered Leaves" kit.  The stamp set included with this kit showcases a couple of detailed leaves; and I love the font used for all of the sentiments.  There is sooo much product supplies included in this kit that there were quite a few extras after the entire kit was finished!  YAY!! I'm super excited to share my altered kit project with you...let's take a gander.



I really like this month's kit, so I was excited to discover that the kit came with 4 extra pieces of each die cut leaves and accessories.  How sweet is that?!!  This meant that I could make all 16 projects...8 each of the 3x3 card and pillow boxes, and then use the leftover pieces for whatever projects I could dream up.  Sort of like having leftover Sunday Roast so that you can make beef stew or beef stroganoff to create a 2nd meal that really isn't tasting like 'leftovers'!  :)  Leftovers are awesome!




The Soft Suede card base was shouting out "Fall" to me.  I layered a piece of Wood Textures Designers Series Paper that was embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured embossing folder onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock. To give a sense of a rustic feel, the patterned paper was distressed on the edges.  I love the rustic look.



The hashed pattern paper comes from the Painted Autumns Designer Series Paper pack that is available in the Holiday catalog.  A strip of Gold Glimmer paper trims this piece to set it apart from the woodgrain paper.  It also coordinates and enhances the Gold leave layered with the bunch of leaves.




To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the September Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have to share.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

How do I know if Paper Pumpkin is right for me?

If you can answer "Yes" to any of these questions, then Paper Pumpkin is the perfect solution for you!

  • I want a creative escape but I don’t have a lot of time.
  • I’m not sure I’m ready to commit to papercrafting, but I want to try it.
  • I love to create but I don’t always feel creative.
  • I need some fresh project ideas.
  • How can I craft when I don’t have all the “crafting stuff” I need?

Go ahead....give it a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month test drive and get in on all the FUN!!  If you end up not enjoying it (GASP!!), you can cancel your subscription.  But, I'm sure you will be very happy and excited to see what the next month will bring you.  Trust me!  I've been a subscriber for over 3 years and I get anxious to receive my little orange box in the mail near the middle of each month.  **squeal**
