Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop


This month's Paper Pumpkin kit is called "Joy to the World" and I'm dying over the amazing Christmas sentiments included! You can join me on Zoom next Monday at 4pm Pacific too to see how I put these projects, and more, together, and do a bit of socially distanced socializing while we're at it! Join us here: Joy to the World with Paper Pumpkin Zoom

To make these eight cards I took two of the cards from the kit and used the pieces, along with some extra card stock and gold twine, plus of course some Gilded Gems because I'm OBSESSED, to pull these cards together.


Here's a closer look at each of the cards... 









Let's see what the rest of the crew made with their kits!


If you'd like to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, the best way to do it is with a pre-paid subscription.

A clear block is included in your first kit, but I prefer the full sized ones, and it's always good to have more. Other than that you really don't need much more than a pair of scissors and maybe the Take Your Pick Tool and a bone folder to put your kits together!

Today's Tiles

So earlier this week I showed you this card I created en masse some customer thank you cards.


Then yesterday I did a Facebook live video showing a stepped up version of this card and how I used the Stamparatus to line everything up!



Well that led me down the rabbit hole because I got some great suggestions for jumping off points! I created these two more holiday style versions based on reds...


So which do you like best of my variations? Or maybe the original is your favourite?


If you want to make your own cards, click on any of the supplies below to be taken to my online store! Happy stamping!

Trimming The Town Blog Hop


This blog hop is all about the Trimming The Town suite! I actually only used the dies for this card, which has a special secret...


When you push on the bow, the house lights up! I love this extra little 'spark' on a card, and it's actually easier than you'd think. Check out my Instagram to see it light up, I couldn't figure out how to do it here. Stay tuned for a class coming up which will feature some of these bright creations (puns totally intended).

I did make a second card as well, this one features a bit more of the designer series paper, and yes, this one lights up too! This one I wanted to showcase some of the multilingual sentiments included in the paper, and the houses reminded me of the glow of the first snow in my neighbourhood...



Take a look at the other projects by clicking through the list below! Don't forget to subscribe to my email newsletter so that you don't miss out on the light up card class when it's announced.
