" Boo! " Halloween Banner Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Hi everyone! Hope everything is having a great week!!

Here is another Paper Pumpkin alternative. If you haven't heard about Stampin' Up!'s Paper Pumpkin it is an all inclusive subscription kit that comes ready to assemble with everything you need to create that months project. This month is called " BOO-TIFUL" bags. The part that I really love is you get exclusive stamp sets in the kit. If you need more info on Paper Pumkin just let me know and I'll be happy to answer any questions or if you know "yes, I need some happy mail every month" you may Join Now!

On to the banner!! I wanted to create a banner for my little "inspiration shelf" and thought it was the perfect way to make my display a little more festive.

*A little sneak peak at a something for "Flashback Friday"  check back for that post.

I am really loving how it turned out. 

I stamped each letter separately with vesa mark on crushed curry cardstock. then embossed in black. I used my 1" circle punch to punch out letters. 

I used scrap pieces of the Motley Monsters DSP from past project I did for the pennants. 

Used a 2" x 12" piece of DSP scored every 1/2" to create the "rossettes" (not sure if that's what to call them). Adhered my pieces together. 

Used a 1/8" circle punch on corners of pennets. String the black bakers twine from kit. Added some of the sticker embellishments from kit to decorate. 

Whatcha all think???

September 2014 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!! Here in the usually sunny Hawaii we had a wet weekend of tons of heavy rain and strong wind ( I'm not complaining) which means indoor activities and of course that means crafty time for me in my happy place.

I did some playing fiddling around with My Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin for September 2014. Let me just say this month's paper pumpkin is amazing!!! First of all its a Halloween theme ( my favorite) and the exclusive stamp set it comes with is super cute!! If you don't know what a Paper Pumpkin is...its basically an all inclusive project kit that comes every month to your door for $19.95/ month. Every month is a new project there will be things like exclusive stamp sets, ink spots and so much more goodies. Well enough about that lets get to the fun stuff!!! Here are some cards I made using some of the items in the kit.

Instead of using the sweet little burlap treat bags from the kit I used my Dots and Stripes masks to recreate the bags. 

In the picture above is a look at what came in the September 2014 Paper Pumpkin

Found this great tutorial HERE . Go check it out Deb gives great easy to follow instructions. 

As you can see a gift card sits perfectly in there and still has some room just in case you want to add some sweet things in there. 

I used the mixed bunch stamp set. I love love love how it turned out!!!!.
