I have more alternate project ideas to share with the January 2019 Be Mine Valentine Paper Pumpkin kit! Sometimes I get on a roll, and I just can’t put a kit aside. Hahaha! I hope you are inspired by these creations. If you didn’t get the January kit, I hope you are still able to apply these ideas to other products you may have on hand.
Rather than writing out all the details & directions for each of these creations, I shared them in my Wednesday’s Facebook Live broadcast. (I also shared upcoming new products that will be available February 15th and March 1st.) Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and full products list below, scroll through the close-up photos of what I created, and then let me know if you have any questions.
Here are close-up photos and the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate any of these projects.
FLIP FOLD WECOME BABY CARD
My three versions: With the top two I used the full kangaroo stamp image and matching dies from the coordinating Animal Expedition Suite in my kangroo underneath. In the bottom card I used no dies at all. Instead I used the Sprig Punch, fussy-cut the pouch area from the stamped Kangaroo image, and added it to another kangaroo piece from the kit.
Here are a couple photos I took while making these three cards. I didn’t like the harshness of all black ink, and I didn’t like the softness of all Smoky Slate ink.
I also didn’t like how the die-cut stamped kangaroo didn’t line up with the kangaroo in the kit (totally fine for making other projects, but not good for this flip-fold card where the cut outs needed to be stacked).
So this one (the bottom of the three) ended up being my favorite.

It’s been awhile since I did a Stampin’ Blends 101 video. And with the new colors that came out in our Annual Catalog this June AND the 6 additional colors that made their appearance in the Holiday Catalog this September, I thought it would be good to introduce them once again! Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers are way easier to use than one might assume. I hope you’ll check out the video tutorial for my card featuring the Serene Garden and upcoming Happiness Surrounds stamp sets. I’m excited to share!
I demonstrated this card in my latest Facebook Live broadcast this past Wednesday. Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and full products list below, scroll through the close-up photos of this card and the other similar cards with the different color combos, and then let me know if you have any questions.
Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate the card I demonstrated.

Now that these accessories are here, they are staying! They will be rolling into next year’s 2019-20 Annual Catalog. And there’s more coming…Watch for the release of the Craft & Carry Stamparatus bag soon!
Watch the video first to get to get measurements, directions, and tips. Then scroll down to see close-up photos, links for more information shared in the video, and a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) mentioned or used to make my creations.
Here are the cards that the kit instructs how to make. The kit makes four of each of these. (I made one each. And then I used the remaining pieces of my kit to make all the rest of my projects shared today. Yep! I only used ONE kit for everything. And I still have several leftover pieces.)
Here are close-up photos of the projects I shared in my video above. I sure had fun creating them!
A CELEBRATORY CAKE TOPPER
We enjoyed this cake afterwards for a belated Father’s Day celebration.
A COOKIE STRAW GIFT
A 12X12 SCRAPBOOK PAGE LAYOUT
A CHRISTMAS TREE POCKET PHOTO PAGE LAYOUT
I obviously had fun rearranging the letters from the Hooray stickers.
A SIMPLE CARD WITH LEFTOVER SCRAPS
A FUN Z-FOLD “CAKE” CARD
You’ll want to watch the video for tips to make the sliced cake pieces!
I LOVE that Stampin’ Up! made a whole suite of products to coordinate with this month’s kit! These two cards are just a comparison of how similar the contents of this Paper pumpkin kit are with the products from the coordinating Broadway Bound suite on pages 68-69 in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog. Click here to see that suite in the online store. So you can keep on creating long after you’ve used up the consumables from your kit!
