Even though I dislike sewing, I LOVE this last month's Paper Pumpkin kit.

In fact I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Paper Pumpkin kits in general. If you want to learn more about what Paper Pumpkin kits are, what the pricing options are, and how you can also get these VERY affordable kits of creativity in your mailbox each month so you can join in on the fun, visit my Everything Paper Pumpkin page. It's been updated! So even if you've been there before, you'll have to visit again and tell me what you think.

Check out what else I just made with the March 2015 Sew You kit last Sunday during my Paper Pumpkin playdate…

  • Card #1 – I added Basic Black & Pool Party card stock, the Pool Party ink pad and a sponge, and the Bermuda Bay marker. I sponged some Pool Party ink across the white "You" piece, connected the dots for a faux stitched look with the marker, added a strip of black card stock to look like ribbon, and popped that all up with Dimensionals.

  • Card #2 – I added Daffodil Delight & Pool Party card stock and the Word Window punch. To get the "You" piece to turn black, I used my ink spot to "sponge" on the color – just turned it upside-down and pounced. I added some yellow card stock behind this piece which made the "YOU" stand out better. And again I popped this all up using the Dimensionals that come in the kit.

  • Card #3 – And for this last card I added Daffodil Delight & Pool Party card stock, the Word Window punch, and the Basic Black marker. I colored the "YOU" before adding the yellow thread. Then I layered it onto yellow card stock and added it to the card with Dimensionals. For a fun additional accent, I added an arrow sticker to the "You" piece, trimmed off the end that was not on the white layer, and added that to the Pool Party card stock (the base layer of the card).
