2018 July Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! Today I’m going to show you how I made some alternate cards using the supplies from the July 2018 Kit, Picnic Paradise. This fruit themed kit was so much fun to play with! It was definitely a challenge to come up with a fun alternate project, but I absolutely love how it turned out!

Usually I try to stick to only the contents of the kit, but I also love to make cards, so I decided to add in a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to use as my card base. Check out the video below and be sure to click on the next button to hop along to the other awesome alternate projects!

June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

Welcome, Kre8tors, to the June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! I’m so excited to share an alternate project from this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit, Broadway Star. I absolutely adore the colors in this kit! Green, Pink, and Gold… what more could a girl ask for?!

This alternate card was a lot of fun to put together, and it was so quick! I used the envelope for the card mat by cutting it down to 4″ x 5-1/4″. I also used an additional piece of Basic Black cardstock for the card base, cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.

For the main embellishment, I took one of the Broadway Billboards and put two cakes on it, along with some of the sticker candles. It would look super cute if you added a few pearls to the cakes!

I stamped the Congrats sentiment in Lovely Lipstick, and then wrapped the bakers twine around the card mat twice and finished it off with a bow. I used a mini glue dot to hold the bow in place.

And finally for the inside, I added one of the Whisper White banner stickers along with a Gold Foil Hooray sticker. I just love how it shines!

I hope you enjoyed this alternate project today! Don’t forget to scroll down and watch my video tutorial for this card. Scroll all the way down to the pumpkin icon and click it to continue hopping with the rest of the demonstrators for this Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop!

June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit Broadway Star

Welcome back, Kre8tors! I have been sitting on the June Paper Pumpkin kit for a few days now, but I finally busted it open and guess what?! I FILMED IT! So here’s a fun new video for you to enjoy featuring the two different card styles from Broadway Star!

The colors in this month’s kit are SO beautiful! I absolutely adore green and pink together. In fact those were the colors of my original logo when I first started Melissa’s Kre8tions! Take a look!

Okay, that’s enough nostalgia for now! Let’s get into the good stuff! I really hope you enjoy this month’s kit, and be sure to check back on June 30th where I will be hopping with the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop crew to show you some fabulous alternates from this kit!

Don’t forget, this kit coordinates beautifully with the Broadway Bound suite in the Annual Catalog. Head over to my online shop to take a peek!

April’s Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to the April Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! I’m so excited about this kit!!! As soon as I opened the box, I knew this was going to be a fun kit to make an alternate project with. I can’t wait to share my idea with you! Don’t forget to scroll down and keep hopping to see SO many other wonderful alternate projects for this kit.

These are the suggested cards inside the kit. I love how we get a cute little box to put these 5 cards in! And BONUS! There’s enough to make three full sets! WOW! That’s a lot of cards! What fun gifts this will make! I really love how I get a monthly delivery of craft supplies with my Paper Pumpkin subscription. It’s a great way to build up some stamps and inks, as well as other supplies. And if I don’t really care for that month’s projects, I can always turn it into something else, like I did with this month’s kit!

I decided to make a mini album with this kit. It was a lot of fun taking different bits and pieces from all the included materials and re-arranging them to make this fun fold mini album! I can’t wait to print out some photos to include inside when I gift it!

I used the cards as the base for the album, and then cut apart the envelopes to make fun interactive pockets for little notes. I also stamped and glued the embellishments from this month’s kit on all the pages.

I loved how creative I was able to get with this mini album. I want to turn this into a scrapbook after I gift it, and put in photos, movie stubs, and maybe even the top of the receipt for the restaurant we go to as a reminder of where we went.

I haven’t been able to get around to making a video tutorial this time. Life has been crazy busy this month with moving and starting a new job! I really hope you enjoyed this project and consider giving Paper Pumpkin a try! You have nothing to lose and MORE craft supplies to gain!!!

Here’s my quick video showing how I put together the little box. AND I got to use my Stamparatus for the first time! (Available at the beginning of June.) At the end of this video is a little snippet of my alternate mini album in more detail. I hope you enjoy!
