Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The September 2017 Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin kit has been so much fun! Look what I put together to share with you today.

Gift Box in a Card made with the Layered Leaves September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It’s another Gift Box in a Card project! Below I have measurements and a couple tips for making this. But I shared this “box in a card idea” on my blog on September 14 and then created a how-to video and shared that on September 22. So you’ll want to refer to those posts for more complete directions.

Gift Box in a Card made with the Layered Leaves September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements:

  • Soft Suede embossed notecards from the kit: one full card
  • Soft Suede cardstock: 3″ x 3″ (or half of another notecard from the kit for the cover of the box)
  • Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper: 6″ x 6″

Tips:

  • Sand the front of the notecard. Because these cards are not dyed all the way through, sanding the surface lightly removes the brown dye from the raised embossed design to reveal the white cardstock underneath.
  • Cut out a section from that card (while it’s folded) that is about 1-5/8″ down from the top and just under 1/2″ from each side.
  • Follow the written and visual directions from my  September 14 post or from my video that I shared on September 22 to make the box.
  • For the top of the box, first attach a gold foil sticker, then attach a couple leaves that have been curled a bit first with a Bone Folder. Finally stamp “thankful” on a tag, attach it to the top, and add some twine that has been tied in a bow. By the way, I physically cut my sentiment stamp into two parts so I could easily ink up and stamp just the word “thankful.” But you could use the masking technique instead if you don’t want to cut your stamp.

I hope you enjoyed that project. It’s the last one that I made with my kit. Here are the extra supplies I needed in order to make it…

  • sand paper

 

I also put together these two cards, but didn’t design them myself. I saw these great cards shared in the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club group on Facebook. Are you a member? I founded this group about 2-1/2 years ago. It quickly grew and now has over 13,000 members! Ideas are shared daily, and if you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber it would be well worth your time checking it out.

This one was designed by Linda Schnabel. Click here to be directed to her blog where she shares this card. (I LOVE her extra gold foil layer, but I didn’t have enough in my own stash to put that on my card.)

And this one was designed by Arlene Luscombe. The gold strips are cut from the sticker sheets in the kit. The yellow leaf in the front is from die-cutting the coordinating leaf shape from a scrap of Crushed Curry Cardstock using the Seasonal Layers thinlits.

I love Paper Pumpkin kits. I share them at every event I participate in. Here is a photo of me and a portion of my display/demonstration table at our Demos Galore event on September 30th.

Layered Leaves 12×12 Scrapbook Page Layout

The September 2017 Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin kit is absolutely one of my favorites of all the Paper Pumpkin kits! I’ve created a couple more projects (had shared some already on 9/26 and on 9/28), so today I’ll share one of them… my 12×12 Scrapbook Page Layout. It’s one of those simple, elegant sort of page layouts.

Elegant 12x12 Scrapbook Page Layout made with the September 2017 Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin Kit.… #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements:

  • Early Espresso Cardstock: 2 pieces that are 12″ x 12″
  • Old Olive Cardstock:
    • 5″ x 7″
    • 4″ x 4-1/2″
    • 2″ x 2-3/4″
    • 4″ x 5-3/4″ (2 pieces)
    • 3-1/4″ x 5-3/4″
  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • 5-1/8″ x 7-1/8″
    • 4-1/8″ x 4-5/8″
    • 2-1/8″ x 2-7/8″
    • 4-1/8″ x 5-7/8″ (2 pieces)
    • 3-3/8″ x 5-7/8″

Tips:

  • Position the photo mats (Old Olive on Whisper White) on the 12×12 Early Espresso cardstock. Do not adhere the photo mats yet, but just use them to guide you in positioning your stamped leaf images, gold leaf stickers, and leaf die-cuts.
  • Here is how a section of my leaves look when I lift the large photo mat on the left page away.

Elegant 12x12 Scrapbook Page Layout made with the September 2017 Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin Kit.… #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • There’s no right or wrong way, Just build up a pile of leaves here and there so they are coming out from under the photo mat areas.
  • Curl some of the leaves with a Bone Folder if you wish. Then attach them with glue dots one at a time. (I cut a couple of my gold foil leaf stickers into two pieces so that 2 leaves became 4.)
  • Stamp the word “thankful” onto a gold-edged tag. You can either mask this stamp to eliminate getting ink on the rest of the words or physically cut your stamp into two parts (which is what I did). Then attach the tag so it looks like it’s coming from a leaf cluster.
  • Then cut a 9″ piece of twine from the kit. Remove the metallic thread to use on another project. Tie the white twine into a bow and adhere to the stamped tag with a rolled-up glue dot.

Click here to see lots of great ideas!...A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Layered Leaves September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit …#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

On Tuesday I shared a bunch of projects I created with the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit. But it’s the last Thursday of the month, so now you can be inspired EVEN MORE to “think outside your box” – your Paper Pumpkin box. #APaperPumpkinThing

This kit put me in the mood for Thanksgiving right away, and my mind went immediately to fall family gatherings. So I turned the pillow box into a flatware/napkin holder and used the card elements for decorating a treat box. Every guest should have a party favor. Right?

Tips:

  • Stamp the tags. Add twine and set aside.
  • Rub over the gold leaf sticker with a Bone Folder, then peel the outline sticker up and out carefully keeping the inside pieces intact. Pull from the outer tips of the leaf towards the center.

  • Cut a note card from the kit in half. Save the embossed half for decorating the top of the Pizza Box. Flip the other side over so the white side of the card is up, and die-cut a solid and a detailed leaf.

Click here to see some great alternate ideas created with the September 2017 “Layered Leaves” Paper Pumpkin kit on the Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop!…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Peel the outside gold sticker area away from the remaining leaf sticker pieces, put a small piece of Press-n-Seal down on top, and rub the Press-n-Seal onto these remaining gold stickers using the Bone Folder. Flip this over and remove the sticker backing. Then transfer the gold sticker “inside leaf” pieces to the flipped over (brown side) solid die-cut leaf. Watch this video starting at the 25:30 minute mark so you can see how this is done.

  • Slice off one end of the pillow box. Attach the curved scrap to the embossed card half and attach to the top of the assembled Mini Pizza Box.
  • Attach a cluster of leaf accents to the pizza box cover using a few Dimensionals under the gathered stems. Add a couple more Dimensionals on top of those stems, and add the stamped tag. Fill the box with shreddies and treats.

More Giftable Greetings Alternative Ideas

I am getting excited for my September kit to ship, but I have a few more ideas to share with you that I created with this past month's Paper Pumpkin kit called Giftable Greetings.

This image below shows what we were to make with our August Paper Pumpkin kits. So pretty, right?!

Click here to see lots of great ideas!...A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Giftable Greetings August 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit …#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

But I always challenge myself to see what else I can come up with using the contents of the kit. I love thinking outside the box and creating alternate projects.

 

This first one is this super simple 12×12 photo pocket page layout.

I disassembled the box that came in the kit, flattened it out and cut two pieces from it (6" x 4" and 3" x 4") for two of the pockets. The smaller piece I left alone, and I only added the "congrats" title piece on Dimensionals to the the larger one.

Then for the third pocket piece I cut down one of the envelopes to 3" x 4", stamped "you did it!" across the top section, added a couple leaf stickers, and stuck on a flower. I tried to replicate the flower in the other pieces…I sponged the edges of a peach die-cut flower in the kit and the backside of one of the smaller flowers with Calypso Coral ink. I then stuck those two together and stamped the center. Easy peasy! Right?

I usually work with 2 kits when I create all my alternate projects. So I had another box! This was the one that I referred to in my video – the one that had the bottom popping up when I first opened my kit. I decided to use that inside flap as a cover instead. So I reinforced all the other sections of the box with strong Tear & Tape Adhesive, connected the back flaps, folded the outer edge of what was now the lid of my box the opposite direction to tuck it inside the box and help hold the box shut, and then I added my decorations (ribbon, leaves, and a tag).

I lined the inside with the blue tissue paper that comes with each Paper Pumpkin kit and filled the box with chocolates! (yum)

This last idea I have for you is a fun way to use up all the extra foliage stickers. Stampin' Up! gave us a ton of those in our August kits!

I used many extra supplies to build this card. But if you don't have these items on hand you could always just use the idea of the wreath in a different card layout.

For this card I cut some Garden Green cardstock to 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and scored it parallel to the 5-1/2" edge at 2-1/8" and 4-1/4". Then I added four 2" x 5-3/8" panels – 2 Real Red designer paper pieces from the Quilted Christmas pack on the two outer sections and 2 Whisper White pieces of cardstock on the two inner sections. I tied on some gold ribbon and folded it shut into a z-fold.

Then I cut some Whisper White cardstock with the largest circle die in the Stitched Shapes Framelits set and stamped the center with the sentiment. (To stamp the sentiment first ink the "thinking" portion of the stamp. Stamp it down & clean it BEFORE inking just the "of you" portion of the stamp.)

The last step is building the wreath. I seriously just stuck down full and partial stickers starting at one section and going around. There was no rhyme or reason – no math or anything involved in this process. So go for it! Then I attached the berries and added this entire circle piece to the card with Dimensionals (under the left half only).

August 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Ideas

Paper Pumpkin kit time is my favorite! In fact, I love it so much that I wish I could work in the Paper Pumpkin department at Stampin' Up!

I'm a huge fan of this product…

  • It comes directly to me in my mailbox every single month.
  • It's affordable – around $20 per month (including the shipping!).
  • The kits contain wonderful, seasonal paper-crafting projects that I can do in just a few minutes.
  • The kits are exclusive. Stampin' Up! only manufactures so many.
  • The kits are made with the beginning crafter in mind (so I can do these with my kids or send them to a niece or nephew starting college this fall).
  • AND they appeal to advanced crafters…because a person can really go beyond and create SO many more things than the intended projects.

I put together a couple of these August kit cards according to the directions

…and then I created some alternate projects to share with you.

Today I will share four of the alternate cards that I designed with this August 2017 Giftable Greetings kit. Later this week I'll share even more since I'm still needing to put some finishing touches on some items and photograph them. And then if you are one of my personal Paper Pumpkin subscribers and you received this kit, I'll be sending you 10-13 additional EXCLUSIVE project ideas via email on September 2nd!

I recommend watching my video below first for tips and measurements. It's a long video (as always! sorry). But I share a lot of details, and I have a hard time knowing what to cut out. 😉

 

Here are close-up photos of my four alternate cards that I created in the video.
