Paper Pumpkin – Hugs from Shelli (Altered)

I am a little behind on assembling my Paper Pumpkin kits but I really wanted to share the May kit with you – Hugs from Shelli.

This kit made four different card designs (three each of the four designs) which according to my math equals 12 cards. Hopefully even with the new math they are teaching kids in school these days that total comes to the same number of cards! Since I love these kits so much I always get two each month so I get to make 24 cards – yahoo!

The only thing that I have a problem with from time to time is that the cards may not be A2 size cards (5.50” x 4.25” when closed) which is pretty much the smallest size the USPS wants you to mail. So when this is the case I alter the kits by adding additional card stock as the card base to make the cards BIGGER.

I basically follow the layout design of the kit, I just expand the card’s footprint. This is what I mean:

I cut the fronts off all of the cards and matted them with snail adhesive on coordinating card stock and then with dimensionals on card stock base. I used the other half of the card for the inside of the card for the stamping of the greeting. I used my Stamparatus for all stamping.

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used to enhance the Paper Pumpkin kit.

I just received my June kit. They are tiny cards. I haven’t decided what I will do with these just yet but I will share them with you once I have them completed. I still need to work on the April kit – they are beautiful flower cards. Ugh, where does the time go!?!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper!

Don’t forget — if you want to receive the July Paper Pumpkin Kit you must subscribe by July 10!

Until next time, stamp on my friends.
