My Paper Pumpkin November!

Oh did I ever fall in LOVE with the My Paper Pumpkin kit this month! This I believe is our ninth month into our monthly little "Red Box At Your Doorstep" and as you may know, I hold a free get-together for my girls once a month so we can assemble our kits together. I always try to stretch their kits and make more with what is found inside. This month was no exception. Follow me below...

Here's the little red box that arrived on my doorstep. Would you like to have one delivered to your doorstep each month? Click HERE to sign up! Make sure to list me as your demonstrator, my zip code is 04730!

Here is what we received this month:

An instruction sheet, 4 striped card bases, 4 NOEL tags that are pre-cut and pop out, 1 inkpad, 2 stamps, 4 envelopes, LOVELY stringed stars & 1 package of Stampin' Dimensionals:

Look how beautiful these strings of stars are:

And I've S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-D our kits by making 10 cards total! All I asked the girls to bring with them was 5 sheets of Very Vanilla Cardstock:

Card #1 with a confession:

This is an exact replica of the card with the kit instructions but....I have a little confession. When I was ready to add the inked sentiment, I had not secured my clear stamp well to my clear block and it fell on my tag. That's why you see Rhinestone Jewels at the bottom of my sentiment. I had to cover some little ink smudges. With some luck I was able to stamp the sentiment after it was dropped...phew!

Card #10:

It was easiest to change things up by cutting the 3 remaining striped card bases in half on the score line. I have a Google Document I created if you want to use it to create these cards. Here is is: PDF

I hope you will consider joining my group of My Paper Pumpkin subscribers. We always have a good time and if you are local to me, I email you what we create with our kits. Just make sure you sign up before the 10th of the month to receive next months kit!
Thanks for stopping by to visit!


  1. I just marvel at how you use every bit of every kit to make these wonderful cards and projects! I'm looking at the frames for every pre-punched die cut I've got with new eyes.
    Wish I had enough frequent flyer points to join you gals for one of your monthly PP gatherings. Looks like so much fun!

    1. Thanks Chellie. I try to challenge myself each month and it usually works out pretty well. Wish you were closer as I would love to meet you in person!
