Paper Pumpkin Alternatives April 2016

If you live in the Des Moines area, I hope you’ll consider signing up for Stampin’ Up’s monthly fun craft box called Paper Pumpkin.  It’s $20 a month and less if you sign up for multiple months.  It’s very exciting to see what arrives each month.  The best part is you then get to come to my house for a free class and put together your kit.  I will always have additional or alternative ways to do your project.  Here’s the wreath that came in April.  Typically the kit contains eight or nine cards, but this month was a Spring Wreath.  When I took the Bunny down after Easter, the nail by my front door sat empty, so I was happy to have a wreath to put there.

The wreath I made is below.  I love it!  It makes me smile every time I walk by my front door to go upstairs.

Below are the wreaths Pat and Marcelyn made during the class.  They did a great job!

When we got done with the wreaths, we had time to make a card with the extra free stamp set that came with the April Paper Pumpkin.  This stamp set is called, All About Everything, and was only available to Paper Pumpkin subscribers.

I made it one more time and heat embossed the flower to make it pop!

This is also the set I used to make my Kate Spade knock off card.
