My Wonderful Family Paper Pumpkin Alternative Projects

I have time to pull out and create with the April Paper Pumpkin Kit, My Wonderful Family!  What a fun kit indeed!  I made some minor  adjustments to the cards, and then made a scapbook page.  It's been a very long time since I've done any scrapbooking and it felt great!

Repetitively stamped the 'sister' stamp onto a piece of card stock (pear pizzazz here) to create the background image.  The rest of the card is pretty much just like the instructions in the kit. 

Here as the card above, I repetively stamped the 'sister' stamp to create a background, but here I used a scrap piece of one of the card bases that came in the kit (cut down in size though).  

I simply cut apart the card base after stamping the tree leaves.  I cut apart the shaded spruce bottom and re-attached it to the bottom of the card front, layering the entire thing onto a piece of pear pizzazz card stock (8-1/2"x5-1/2", folded in half for a base).  The rest of the card I followed the instructions in the kit.

I cut out one of the tree leaf images before attaching the tree trunk.  It seemed to scream 'place me on a scrapbook page'.  While digging through old pictures, I found this one of most of my immediate family that were in attendance for my dad's marriage to Marvean (over 10 years ago!).  The perfect picture for this page!

I was suprised how long it's been since I've posted here.  Life has been rather busy with taking on more responsibility with the Bible study I'm a part of.  With summer months, safer-at-home orders, and the like, I'm hoping to be better.  I'm also feeling more confident in my role after 2 years doing it now, so hopeful!  

Let me tell you, Paper Pumpkin has gotten so much better since it's beginning!  If you haven't tried it for awhile, or you have been holding back, now is a great time to jump in!  I'd love to help you get started.

Happy stamping!
