Oh my goodness! I love the elements and the colors of this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit – the August 2021 Hope Box kit! In fact I was so inspired when I got the kit that I think I created my first set of alternates, recorded my how to video, and created this blog post in record time.

This pretty kit (inspired by Stampin’ Up!’s co-founder, Shelli Gardner) contained the supplies shown below to make nine colorful hope-themed cards along with some extra elements for decorating the box this kit arrived in.

But I never assemble my kits as is, because I like to show subscribers other ways to use those supplies. I like to think outside the box…see what else I can come up with, and create alternate cards, scrapbook pages and more. So today I’m sharing with you…

  • How I doubled the kit by turning the envelopes into more cards
  • A simple card (stunning on black)
  • A double slider card
  • A book binding card
  • And a hope jar (mini 3-D gift)

Watch my video first by clicking here to get to get measurements, directions, and tips (or you can just click on this image below if you are already in my blog post). Scroll down to see close-up photos, access the links that I mentioned in my video, and see a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) that I used to make my creations. Then be sure to visit my blog again soon, because I have many more alternate projects that I’ll be sharing on September 2nd and again on September 10th. 

Here are the cards the kit instructs how to make. (Click here for a link to Stampin’ Up!’s how-to video featuring Shelli to help you assemble these as intended.)
