It’s time for the October Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop sharing alternate ideas for the October 2017 kit – Pining for Plaid.
This time I have a quick idea for you. My favorite thing to do is to use Note Cards with the pieces from my Paper Pumpkin kits to make it go a little further.
For this kit we have the pretty card bases in the Old Olive plaid pattern. I took one of those and cut it into 4 pieces giving me enough for 4 note cards. Then I used the left over bits to decorate it. I still have plenty of bits left to do more. I’m in the middle of prepping for some other classes so my play time was minimal.
I added the Whisper White Note Cards and some Gold Thread plus Old Olive ink. I stamped one of the left over circle bits – this one looks like an ornament with the gold top. And used up an extra set of the banners. Super quick an easy.
If you didn’t notice this kit also coordinates with the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper in our Holiday Catalog. So you could pull in some of that paper if you don’t want to cut up your card bases like I did for this card design.
Don’t forget the this October kit coordinates with next month’s Paper Pumpkin kit too! Be sure to be an active subscriber by Nov. 10 to get the November kit.
