Yay! It’s time again to see lots of alternate Paper Pumpkin kit ideas!
Today is the day where a creative team of us Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators bring to you our special “A Paper Pumpkin Thing” blog hop. See what I have to share, then check out all the other blogs in the hop to see additional creative alternate paper crafting project ideas that we each came up with using the contents of the April 2018 “You Are My Anchor” Paper Pumpkin kit. To follow the hop, simply scroll down to click on the names of other participants in the hop to see other creative projects.
This month’s kit is a fun one with a nautical look! Click here to see the April kit video put out by Stampin’ Up! where you can view how to make these sweet 3×3 note cards and gift boxes as intended.
Today I have put together a fun 12×12 scrapbook page and a coordinating candy bar wrap to share with you. See below for a full list of extra supplies I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.
Measurements/Tips/Directions for the 12×12 page:
- Crumb Cake Cardstock: 12″ x 12″
- Island Indigo Cardstock: 3″ x 5-5/8″, 3-5/8″ x 5-5/8″, 2-5/8″ x 4-1/8″, 3-1/8″ x 2-5/8″ (2 pieces), 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
- Pool Party Cardstock: 2-7/8″ x 5-1/2″, 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, 2-1/2″ x 4″, 3″ x 2-1/2″ (2 pieces), 4″ x 5-1/4″
Mask the sentiment stamps with tape to ink them, then remove the mask before stamping. Use Fine Tip Glue to adhere the sequins. Add the layered photo mats to the page first. Then add the largest circle tag with a small amount of SNAIL Adhesive, and tuck the smaller circle tags in and around it so that their holes are concealed. Stamp the water images. Add the word banners and the large anchor with Dimensionals.
Measurements/Tips/Directions for the Green & Black brand candy bar wrap:
- Pool Party Cardstock: 10″ x 2-1/2″ scored in at one end at 5-3/8″ and 5-5/8″ and then at 5/8″ and 7/8″ at the other end
- Island Indigo Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 2-5/8″
Stamp “For You” on a small circle tag. Emboss the longest section of the Pool Party cardstock. Trim end to a “banner.” Add the Island Indigo layer under the embossed section with Tear & Tape Adhesive, and trim end to become a border to the Pool Party banner. Wrap around the candy bar and secure with Tear & Tape. Add the largest circle tag with Dimensionals, and tuck the smaller circle tags in and around it so that their holes are concealed. Use Fine Tip Glue to adhere the sequins. Add the anchor with Dimensionals.
This hop will definitely inspire your creativity! But if you want to see even more, I invite you to visit again this weekend. I’ll be sharing several more of my own creations tomorrow or Saturday.

On a side note for those of you who are wondering about Nicholas…
His surgery took place on May 1st. He has been in pain since, so we welcome the times he is fairly comfortable or napping.
Here is a post op photo when we were able to get a smile out of him. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.
And Luke had a great time on his 5th grade overnight field trip. I attended with him for the first full day, so here are a few photos from this past Monday (the day before Nick’s surgery).
Thanks for visiting. Have fun on the hop!
