VIDEO: July 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Alternate Projects & Giveaway

stampin up paper pumpkin what a gem july 2016 kit


My apologies for being a little late getting my July paper pumpkin kit alternate projects out to you. I really wanted to play with the kit sooner, but my traveling the past few weeks put me a little behind schedule. I am very happy to finally get to play with the July “What a Gem” kit. It was so much fun.

In my alternate project video,  I’ll show you how to make the mason jar card. This card was designed by Beth Arnold. My original card is below. It’s fun too. I was just preparing to video my card when I saw Beth’s and fell in love with it and have a complete change of plans hahaha. Which card do you like better?

Be sure to check out the new BOGO Paper Pumpkin sale, and my new giveaway below.

July refill kits are available in my online store.

  20. Your video got me to thinking of other ways to use the jewels stamps — like attendance device at church — the kids would get to stamp a jewel on a crown each time they attend; or I’d stamp and cut jewels beforehand and they could chose one and put it in a treasure box which they would assemble and decorate . . .so much potential. Enjoy your willingness to share all you crafting mojo with the rest of us.
