September Paper Pumpkin Get's Dressed Up For Fall

September Paper Pumpkin

We haven't had a single trick-or-treater at our house in five years, so I decided to dress my Paper Pumpkin treat boxes up in cozy fall sweaters and use them as table toppers for our big family Thanksgiving dinner.  I used scraps and pieces of fall paper from my paper bin, and some designer series paper, beautiful embossed and die cut leaves, wheat and pumpkins made with the new Gather Together suite in the holiday catalogue to embellish them.

The orange foil stripes and polka-dots on the treat boxes goes well with fall colours - and for the darker ones with peacock and green, I will just tuck the top flaps inside the box, add some tissue paper and leave them open-topped.

TGCDT September 2019 Blog Hop - Pretty Peacocks

After a few short technical difficulties with YouTube wanting to stream a blank black box, you get to see my video.  During this comedy special, be sure to watch for the 2019 ink dauber earthquake, my famous Darth Vader impression, and finally my skilled "how to stamp your sentiment after you've already adhered your matte to the front of the card - with dimensional no less...."  please enjoy!

Catching Up & Making Fun Shaker Cards

I admit I have been somewhat delinquent in posting here since my first video blog in August for the new Gentlemen Crafters group, but honestly I have been overwhelmed with other daytime-job work and preparing for an upcoming crafting event that I am co-hosting.  That said, I did find some time every day to do a little creating - finishing up old projects, packaging up cards to go to the gift shop, and organizing my Fall and Winter classes.

August Paper Pumpkin & Add-On Has Amazing Design Potential

August Paper Pumpkin Kit

I am absolutely in love with the August Paper Pumpkin colours - stamps - embellishments and possible design ideas.  The kit itself was not only cute with the little goody bags, but an amazing value too.  They really hit this one out of the park!  I don't think we've had a kit with so many die cut pieces - in so many colours, ribbon and twine, printed vellum elements etc. The box was full, and well worth the money.

If that wasn't enough to tickle your fancy - some didn't like the idea of goody or gift bags, all you had to do was add on the Gift of Fall card and envelope set, and a whole world of other possibilities opened up. We can generally find ways to use Paper Pumpkin supplies to make cards, but with the card pack, you don't even have to think about how you might alter something to use on a card.  As you can see, I used bits and pieces from the kit and the add-on card pack and quickly came up with 8 varied card designs.  The cards in the bottom left are my version of a similar card I saw on Pintrest from Rachael Tessman of Stamp Your Art Out
