Hi crafty friends,

The May Paper Pumpkin craft kit was AH-mazing yet again.   I must admit that I have become totally smitten with the little orange box!   What is Paper Pumpkin you ask??   A subscription card/craft kit by Stampin’ Up!   The May box, Manly Moments, knocked it out of the park for me!   Look at how much great guy stuff came inside this box!


All of this crafty goodness arrives at your door once a month.   Each kit will also include a small ink pad plus an exclusive stamp set to coordinate with the kit!    Each month you can find an instructional video on YOUTUBE on the how-to.   It’s an awesome place to start for beginners.   Some people just love to take the supplies and come up with their own designs.   We call these alternatives.    Here are the Manly Moments card designs from the original directions from the kit.

Check out the Manly Moments alternative I made with my Paper Pumpkin stamping club.   I just love how this card turned out!!

Adventure Awaits


The inspiration for this card came straight from the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club found on FaceBook.   This is a community full of Paper Pumpkin creators who love to share their tips, techniques and of course the alternative monthly designs.
