A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- You Are My Anchor

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters!  It is May...already! but we have a really fun A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop to share with you!!  A number of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the April monthly kit named "You Are My Anchor".  I'm super excited to share what I created for you....let's get to it, shall we!


Do you have a sailor or avid boater in the family?  How cute is this kit?  Fun 3" x 3" cards with coordinating envelopes...then you can tuck a set of five into the adorable gift box.  You'll have four wonderful gifts...all out of ONE little kit!  Can't beat that, I'd say! ;)



I decided to take one cardbase from each design and cut the 3" x 6" in half.  The Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes were calling my name to enhance and add the original designed 3" x 3" card to the front.  I focused on adding cardstock pieces in the coordinating colors of Calypso Coral, Island Indigo and Pool Party.



One more added feature was to emboss the cardstock strip layers using the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder.  I couldn't was meant to have a little bit of wave with the images.  :)








This set of 5 notecards went together pretty quickly.  Now, all I have to do is add a little coordinating stamped image to the envelopes and I have a 'larger' gift set of cards to give away.  By cutting the 3" x 3"s in half, I'll get double the amount of cards because all but one had the matching design on the other half.  **squeal** 


To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the March Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have created to share with you.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.
