Introducing the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit: To You And Yours! It included supplies to make 10 beautiful holiday cards (5 each of 2 designs shown below).

This kit was very popular. In fact, it was so popular that Stampin’ Up! has no extra full kits or refills to put in the online store. So if you were lucky enough to get a kit or two, these ideas are for you!

I am someone who sends WAY more than 10 Christmas cards each year. So when I opened my kit, the first thing I did was divide out all the contents. I took the elements that made up 1/5 of the cards – 2 of the cards (one of each design), added three sheets of Very Vanilla cardstock and eight envelopes, and then reconfigured everything to make eight cards. Doing this with the whole kit produces 40 cards: 5 x 8 = 40! Yay!

Here is what came in this November 2018 kit.

Friends of a Feather Pages & Cards

My layout is done!

I have created scrapbook pages with the contents of every Paper Pumpkin kit since the kits began in March of 2013. Scrapbooking is a HUGE passion of mine! So I created pages once again with the October 2018 Friends of a Feather kit, and I’m excited to share them now! I loved how the laser-cut branch pieces in this kit flipped over looked like they were covered in snow.

Click here to see fun alternate project ideas I created with the October 2018 Friends of a Feather Paper Pumpkin kit: a 12x12 scrapbook page holiday layout with white, snowy branches and a wreath, two Step Panel fun-fold cards, and the cards I sent to a few of my personal subscribers.…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And because the stems are so thin, the branch pieces can be manipulated a bit to be either straighter (as in the eyelashes I gave my sweet orange monster that I shared on October 25th) or curvier for when trying to build the perfect wreath.

Want to duplicate these pages? I used five long branch pieces on each page. It doesn’t matter if they are the purple or the orange ones. Either color flipped over will give you white. Here are the measurements and supplies you’ll need.

Measurements of extra products:

  • Basic Black Cardstock:
    • Two pieces that are 5-3/8″ x 4″
    • Two pieces that are 5-3/8″ x 2-3/4″
    • Two pieces that are 2-1/2″ x 2-5/8″
    • Eight pieces that are 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
  • Blackberry Bliss Cardstock:
    • 8-1/2″ x 11″
    • Eight pieces that are 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″

    • One full sheet of the Blackberry Bliss subtle stripes pattern

Yay! 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 October 2018 “Friends of a Feather” Paper Pumpkin kit. To follow the hop, simply scroll down and click on the names of other participants in the hop to see the other creative projects.

The October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit: Friends of a Feather! …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I loved the cards that Stampin’ Up! designed for this kit – 8 cards, 4 of each of these 2 designs! The card elements (die-cut feathers and leaves, sequins, metallic twine and ribbon, beautiful papers and sentiments in the stamp set) are beautiful. Click here to see the October 2018 kit video put out by Stampin’ Up! where you can view how to make these cards as intended.

But for those of you who got this kit and want to change things up a bit, I have a couple ideas to share today. This first one is not too far from the original look in the cards, but it’s a journal cover instead of a card. I like to keep a list of those I know dealing with pain,  illness or loss in a notebook called a prayer journal. My other notebook was old, and the piling post it notes weren’t working anymore… I needed a new journal. I can open it up and read it to remind me who I can send my well wishes to.

If you wish to recreate this journal with your kit contents, follow the measurements and directions below.

Measurements of extra products:

Measurements of kit products:

  • Metallic Chevron Ribbon:
    • 11″
    • 4-1/2″
  • Metallic Twine:
    • 14″

Extra Stampin’ Up! Products I Used:  See below for a full list of extra supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • Sponge the edges of theCrumb Cake cardstock with Crumb Cake ink.
  • Tie the 4-1/2″ ribbon around the 11″ ribbon towards the top.
  • Tie on the twine.
  • Then tape the 11″ ribbon close to the left edge of the Crumb Cake cardstock being sure to wrap and tape the ends to the backside.
  • Put plenty of Tear & Tape adhesive along the backside (especially along the edges) of the Crumb Cake cardstock, then attach to the front cover of the composition book.
  • Trim up the corners and any cardstock extending beyond. Then sponge the edges a bit more to ensure that the areas that were trimmed will blend in and look uniform with the other edges.
  • Squeeze some Tombow Liquid Glue onto the corner of the Silicone Pad. Collect some of the glue onto the sponge by pouncing the sponge in the glue a few times.
  • Working with one die-cut at a time, pounce glue to the backsides of the leaves and feathers and attach them to the journal cover just under the knot of the ribbon.
  • Stamp sentiment with Cajun Craze ink onto the backside of a label piece from the kit. And sponge the edges with Crumb Cake ink.
  • Add this to the front of the journal using Dimensionals.
  • Lastly add a couple sequins tucked under each side of the sentiment piece.

This second version has a different sentiment from the kit and gives the journal a whole new purpose. I can see a young person using this journal to write thoughts about the treasured friendships they have and possibly adding photos, too.

This second project idea I have for you today was inspired by the first Monster Gift Pouch I made and shared almost a week ago. (Click here to see that idea and a few others I posted already on my blog.) This one is my happy female version. And the envelope opens downward, so you need to be able to tuck the flap under the eyes to keep the contents inside before it’s “gifted.”

If you wish to recreate this journal with your kit contents, follow the measurements and directions below.

Measurements of extra products:

  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • Scrap for punching out two 2″ Circles
    • Scrap for stamping and punching 1″ Circle
  • Coastal Cabana Cardstock:
    • Scrap for punching out two 1-1/4″ Circles
  • Basic Black Cardstock:
    • Scrap for punching out two 1/2″ Circles
  • Grapefruit Grove Cardstock:
    • Scrap for punching out a 2″ Circle

Extra Stampin’ Up! Products I Used:  See below for a full list of extra supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • Cut Grapefruit Grove circle in half, then layer the punched circle pieces to form the eyes.
  • Squeeze some Tombow Liquid Glue onto the corner of Silicone Pad. Collect some glue onto sponge by pouncing the sponge in the glue a few times.
  • Working with one die-cut at a time, pounce glue to the backsides of the dark purple leaves, and attach them to the monster eyes. The leaves are narrow enough to straighten as you glue them down, so you should be able to the the center to line up with the bottom of the eyelid.
  • Pounce glue to the backsides of the orange leaves, and attach them to the inside flap of the envelope as shown.
  • Cut a dark orange leaf down the center, pounce glue to the backsides of the feather halves, and attach them to the outside and inside areas of the envelope as shown to form the lips.
  • Stamp and punch the sentiment piece. Then adhere between the monsters “hands.”
  • Close the envelope flap shut when everything as dried, then add the eyes so that they overlap the envelope flap slightly.
  • Put a treat inside, and give to someone special.

Friends of a Feather October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Alternates

My October 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit arrived a few days ago, and I started creating with it right away! (Don’t expect that from me every month. I just happened to have time to play with it right away this time. LOL) I already shared one of these projects, my Get Well Monster Gift Pouch on Thursday with the promise to share more details today on how to make it. So today I present to you that fun project idea and a few more that I created so far with my Friends of a Feather October 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit:

  • two alternate cards
  • one with a coordinating gift box
  • a get well monster treat/gift pouch
  • and a tea light luminary

Here is what came in this kit.

Get Well Monster Gift Pouch

I got my October 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit yesterday. Did you get yours? This is what you can make when following the instructions in the kit…4 of each of these two types of cards.

I love to change things up, though. So I took the contents, a couple extra pieces of cardstock and circle punches, and…

The October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit: Friends of a Feather! …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

look what I made! Hahaha! He’s a little monster made from one of the envelopes.

And when the envelope is open, you can add a treat or gift. He’s my “Get Well” Monster Gift Pouch.

(Click here to get started with your subscription. Click here to learn more about these fun kits.)

I love that this kit came with a “get well” sentiment. Because just since Monday of this week, I’ve had four people in my extended family undergo some sort of surgery. Two of those are little ones – my cousin’s daughter who had ear bones on one side replaced and my niece’s kiddo who had his adenoids removed. I’m thinking they would each love getting this gift of a fun worried little monster like this with some sort of goody in the pouch. So I may need to make a couple more and get them in the mail with money or gift cards or something.

I’ll share more details about this project on Saturday in my how-to video, but the extra supplies I used with the contents of my October Paper Pumpkin kit are these.

 

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

Some of you have asked how Nicholas is doing. My own kiddo was another one of those 4 family members. Nick’s surgery was just a couple days ago. And I’m thrilled to say he’s doing great. He has a bit of pain from the incision (his pins were removed from the surgery back on May 1st after he broke his left knee cap), but he is a strong kid and is optimistic about recovering quickly. Plus he’s a goof and has had a great sense of humor through all this!

He’s NOT in pain in this photo. He’s making silly faces for me. I couldn’t get him to give me a normal smile in the recovery room. (And several staff members in the hospital told me how much they enjoyed having this silly kid there.)

Nick is recovering from his second knee surgery and doing well…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

But he did give me a normal smile after we got him in the van to go home. (My mom is the one being silly now. hahaha!)

Nick is recovering from his second knee surgery and doing well…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Nick doesn’t want this surgery to stop him from getting back on his feet. He plans to be marching and playing with the school band in parades coming up October 26th and 27th.

Thank you all for your well wishes, prayers and kind messages. I’m positive they helped.

Baby Shark & Flash Sale!

Oh, my goodness! I have two fun things to share with you today. The first is that Stampin’ Up! is having a flash sale for new Paper Pumpkin subscribers. If you’ve never tried these kits, click here to learn more. Then hurry & scroll down to take advantage of this Flash Sale. (The supply for this sale is limited.)) The second is that I saw a super cute idea from Jessica Cruz de Urrutia on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club. She turned the ghost from the September kit into a baby shark! It was so adorable, I HAD to CASE this idea and make a card of my own. A big cheers to Jessica!

I just had to CASE the “baby shark from the ghost” idea from Jessica Cruz de Urrutia and make a card of my own! Too cute! One more alternate project idea that I put together (and gifted to a few of my subscribers) with the September 2018 Frights & Delights Paper Pumpkin kit…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I made my baby shark slightly different that the one that Jessica shares in her video. I didn’t have the Four-Petal Flower Punch and used the Leaf Punch for both the dorsal fin and the tail. Plus I made the shark’s teeth a little differently.

Products:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Here are the steps I took to create my version.

  • Stamp the mouth (using the moon stamp) on a ghost from the kit in Flirty Flamingo ink.

  • Punch a 3/4″ Basic Black circle. Punch a Whisper White set of leaves.
  • Color the leaves and the shark with the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends marker as shown.

  • Punch a scrap of Whisper White first with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. Then encompass and punch this with the Starburst Punch by placing two “teeth” of this punch super close to the 1/2″ circle.

I just had to CASE the “baby shark from the ghost” idea from Jessica Cruz de Urrutia and make a card of my own! Too cute! One more alternate project idea that I put together (and gifted to a few of my subscribers) with the September 2018 Frights & Delights Paper Pumpkin kit…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It’s rare that I share a Paper Pumpkin alternate project idea AND my supply list below includes a link to the full kit I used. Yes! Stampin’ Up! has extras of this September 2018 Frights & Delights Paper Pumpkin kit right now!! But you need to be an active subscriber to purchase any past kits. So keep that in mind if you’d like to get your hands on this full kit or any other past kits that are available.

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