VIDEO: May 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Alternate Projects & Giveaway


I sure did have fun playing with this Paper Pumpkin kit. I was inspired by Lori Mueller, who had the idea to add the Swirly Scribbles die cut to the circle. I cut the die in Gold Foil card stock, and layered over a Tea Lace doily. The used the leaf die from the same die set in Old Olive. The “for you” was cut from the Bunch of Banners dies.

My “how to” video is below, as well as a new giveaway. Download the free pdf for measurements and supplies.

Deadline to sign up for the June kit is June 10
