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


The December 2016 –  Paper Pumpkin Kit is called “Another Good Year”. This kit creates a photo/memory album to make your memory keeping easy. Use the patterned papers, window sheets, stickers, and washi tape to embellish your book. And, for the first time ever—we’ve included a rotary stamp and Basic Black Stampin’ Write® Marker to help you jot down and journal every moment.

I went “outside the box” (pun intended) this month and created some super cool Valentine’s day shaker cards. The window sheets in the kit were perfect for the shaker cards, and they made it so easy. Inspiration from Suzanne Netz.

See my video tutorial below for instructions.


Tami’s Alternate Card #1

I created and fun and easy shaker card using the window sheets and printed paper from the kit and some Stampin Up Red Glimmer paper for confetti hearts. See the video below for instructions.

Tami’s Alternate Card #2

Another shaker card using a different window sheet pattern from the kit.

Tami’s Alternate Card #3

Collaborating with the new Stampin Up All Things Thanks stamp set. I colored in the rhinestones with sharpies. See the Inspiration Sheet for measurements and supplies for this card.
