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



This month’s October 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit is called  “Season of Gratitude“, and it’s a super cool shaker card kit right out of the box.

The refills for this kit are available in my online store


Every month I like to share an alternate project and how-to video for the Paper Pumpkin kit. I was inspired by Susanne Netz with this month’s alternate projects. I’ll share how I made these below on the  “how to” video below using a cool sponging/shading technique.
