Hello and Happy Wednesday! Today officially starts our 4 days holiday weekend. Zac  is off until Sunday night and He and I are going to make Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow for our little family. So, today I have week #8 of my 12 weeks of Christmas. So we most people give a gift card for Christmas so this is a quick and easy gift hard holder that you can make two our of one piece of cardstock.  I am in the process of making more of these for the craft fairs I have coming up in December. 

These are a few of the ones I have made so far and I just love the music one of course.

A little wild- Hello there, Honey Bear!

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I am very happy to have  relaxing week. I have a few things I ma trying to get done but for the most part I am getting time to create and that feels good. I want to get my Christmas cards finished and get them ready to mail out around the 1st of December. So I created this card using the A little Wild Bundle and I just love creating cards with these little animals. More times than not I use my paper snips and cut the back off. My great nephew called the other day to tell me he had not gotten a card from aunt B (that's what they call me. My Nieces and Nephews always called me Birdie when My Great Nieces and Nephews came along they could not say Birdie so they just balled me B). So I decided I better get some cards made for them and get them ready to mail. I just love the greeting and thought it would be so cute for them to get some cards using it.

October Paper Pumpkin Alternative #2- Season's Greetings


Hello and Happy Saturday,  
Today I have an alternative cards made using the October Paper pumpkin.  I took the kit and just made cards using the products and Whisper White card bases. I love this the Square came in the kit already I just added the Season's Greetings but I am sure that you could use a tree stamp set and create a card close to this one. Also the Merry Little Christmas designer series paper has a Old Olive and Basic Black Patterned paper.

If you would like to get the November kit that will coordinate with this kit you have to get signed up by November 10th. 


Two, coordinating holiday-themed kits in a row is pretty exciting.
Two coordinating kits means that 1) they will have everything they need to complete unique holiday cards and gifts, 2) they will have more creative options, and 3) they can get that handmade holiday touch without the fuss.


Remember, the October and November kits coordinate but they also stand alone. You DO NOT need both kits to create a complete project.
  • To receive October’s kit, customers must subscribe at paperpumpkin.com by 11:50 PM (MT) on October 10.
  • To receive November’s kit, customers must subscribe at paperpumpkin.com by 11:50 PM (MT) on November 10.
