A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop

PPBlog Hop


Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!! I am so excited to have you join in the hop whether you are stopping by from the amazing Rick Adkins blog or this is your first stop, I'm super excited to have you here!

This month's kit POSITIVELY PICTURESQUE is so cute! I love the little images and the greetings and those die cut card fronts are the BOMB!

The anticipation is REAL PEOPLE! I love getting my PAPER PUMPKIN KIT in the mail every month because I LOVE SURPRISES! Here's July's kit:

Paper Pumpkin July

Here are the alternate projects that I came up with - they were so fun to make!'


I took the Die Cut layer that comes in the kit and trimmed it down to 2-7/8" wide to use as a panel in the middle of my card. A little Pink Powder ink and the images down the sides of the panel really pop don't they?



  • Powder Pink 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
  • Whisper White 2-7/8 x 5-1/4

I followed the same theme for my votive candle box too...



  • Powder Pink 8-1/4 x 3, scored at 3/4, 3-3/4, 4-1/2 & 7-1/2 on the long side and 3/4 & 2-1/4 on the short side
  • Lime patterned paper 1-1/4 x 2-3/4

Check out a step-by-step video showing you how to make this easy little box and also some great tips about my cards here:

 What a sweet & easy gift to make and give:

2017 July SUW

For this card I used the pre-printed note card - it comes with the Lemon Lime Twist watercolor swish on it - I added some Washi Tape stripes to my die cut heart and a little bow in the middle - kind of charming right? My wooden HOORAY is popped up on Dimensionals.

Love your take on the cards and your cute candle box!


Super cute projects Kelly! I especially love your little decorated tea lights! That is such a clever use for the washi tape! 💖


I love the extra pop of color on your card from trimming down the panel that came with the card kit! Thanks for sharing :-D
