July 2021 The Adventure Begins Kit Alternate Ideas

I’m ready to share with you my first set of alternate projects that I made with the July 2021 “The Adventure Begins” Paper Pumpkin monthly subscription kit. 

I’m excited to share with you some alternate project ideas I came up with using the contents of the July 2021 “The Adventure Begins” Paper Pumpkin Kit: how you can turn 12 cards into FORTY (more than tripling the cards in the kit) and my "You Shine" 12x12 scrapbook page layout! Click here for photos of all these projects, a video with directions, measurements and tips, and a complete product list linked to my online store. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

This amazing kit contained the supplies shown below to make twelve fun-fold, outdoor adventure-themed cards.

The cards the kit instructs you how to make are fantastic. 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.

Today I’m sharing with you…

  • How you can turn 12 cards into FORTY (more than tripling the cards in the kit)!
  • And my “You Shine” 12×12 scrapbook page layout.

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’ll have many more alternate projects that I’ll be sharing on July 5th and again on July 9th or 10th. 

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

Easy Card Layout that Shows Both Paper Sides (Plus New Product Peeks)

Stampin’ Up! designer papers usually come double-sided. And to add them directly to a card or project as a layer means having to choose between the two different designs. But the super easy card design that I’m going to share today allows you to show BOTH sides. This card design is perfect for newer stampers AND for those needing to produce several cards for some holiday or occasion.

Show off BOTH sides of your patterned paper with this quick and easy card design. The cards I share feature the Penguin Playmates Designer Paper, Penguin Place Stamp Set, coordinating Penguin Builder Punch, and White Glittered Organdy Ribbon. Click here to access measurements, directions, a link to the how-to video, other close-up photos, and links to the products I used. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I just showed live on YouTube about an hour ago step-by-step directions for this card using the Penguin Playmates Designer Paper, Penguin Place Stamp Set, coordinating Penguin Builder Punch, and White Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the upcoming new products that debut on August 3. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can get updates when I share and go live).

Bloom Where You’re Planted Vertical Z-fold Card

I’m bringing in another Vertical Z-fold card similar to the one I shared last week. I needed more team birthday cards and ran out of the Hand-Penned paper that I was using. So here is my second version that would appeal to maybe a few more people (I could see giving this card to a female OR a male).

Click here to get directions for making this vertical z-fold card featuring products from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog: the Biggest Wish Stamp Set, the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Paper, and the 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum.

Expressions in Color 4th of July Pages & Pinwheel Tower Card

Today is the last day to sign up (or have an active subscription) for Paper Pumpkin so you get in on this next kit title The Adventure Begins.

The July 2021 The Adventure Begins Paper Paper Pumpkin Kit. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

So I thought I’d share a couple more projects that I put together with some of my leftovers from last month’s Expressions in Color kit. 

The June 2021 Expressions In Color Paper Paper Pumpkin Kit. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I first made this Pinwheel Tower card using only three extra products… I added in Basic White & Fresh Freesia Cardstock although I could’ve used more card base pieces from the kit. And I also brought in Blackberry Bliss Ink even though I could’ve used an ink from the kit. So this card IS doable with what comes in the kit.

Extra products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements…

  • Basic White Cardstock
    • Four pieces… 2-3/4” x 4-1/4”
    • 4-1/4” x 4-1/2” scored parallel to the short side at 1”, 2”, 3” & 4”
  • Expressions in Color pink/purple card base from the kit
    • Two pieces… 2-1/2” x 4”
  • Fresh Freesia Cardstock
    • Two pieces… 2-1/2” x 4”

Tips…

  • Follow directions in my how-to video for creating the base of this Pinwheel Tower Card (start around the 12:20 minute mark).
  • Ink up only the word “sending,” then stamp it on a small white banner towards the right. Clean off the stamp. Then ink up only the word “hugs” and stamp it on another small white banner towards the right. 
  • Cut one of the vellum floral pieces in the kit in half and then in one of those halves in half again to get two pieces with a nice 90 degree corner on them. First adhere the stamped white banner piece to the vellum flower, then put more glue dots under that area and add the vellum flower to the Fresh Freesia Cardstock layers.
  • Cut one of the sequins in half before adding to the two white panels of the card.

The card flattened out (on any of the four sides) will fit into a medium A2 size envelope. Yay! Here are the ways I decorated all four sides of my card.

Two days ago after looking back on the fun my family had at the cabin this past weekend, I created this scrapbook page layout. We celebrated Independence Day also known simply as the 4th of July. So I cut apart and reworked the letters on the vellum words from the kit to get my page title. Hahaha! You can’t really see my “piecing together” areas unless you look super close.

Extra products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements…

  • Pacific Point Cardstock (from the Brights 12×12 Cardstock pack)
    • Two pieces that are 12″ x 12″
  • Basic White Cardstock (from the 12×12 pack)
    • Two pieces that are 3-1/2″ x 12″
    • Two pieces that are 1″ x 12″
  • Early Espresso Cardstock (optional for photo mats)
    • Four pieces that are 4-1/8″ x 5-1/2″
    • Three pieces that are 3-1/4″ x 3-1/2″

Tips…

  • Use 1-1/2 pieces of vellum floral pieces from the kit. If you made the card above, you can use that leftover half and then another one cut in half. 
  • Cut all cardstock pieces to size and then cut the vellum words as shown to get the “july” and the “th.” (These can be adhered with sponged on Multipurpose Glue.) The first photo shows where I cut for three of the words. The second photo shows the parts of those words that you need to keep. And the third photo shows those parts turned and repositioned to form the title.

  • Form the number 4, glue the small banners in place and allow to dry. This will be adhered with Dimensionals that have been cut in half.
  • Follow the directions in this how-to video for creating the base pieces (start around the 25:00 minute mark).

I also listed the Artistically Inked Stamp Set as an option for those that didn’t get the kit’s stamp set since there is a stamp image in there that will also “do the trick” for the bottom of the scrap pages.)
