Lots of Pun: Paper Pumpkin Alternate Projects

Lots of Pun: Paper Pumpkin Alternate Projects

Hello and welcome!! December’s Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin kit is so clever and witty. Full of adorable fun images and playful colours … this is a super fun kit!

Opening this kit was a ‘pun’ of fun! The first thing that I noticed (and loved) was the large stamp set … there are so many stamps included in this kit! The images, witty sayings, die cuts and all the little pieces make this Paper Pumpkin kit a hit in my eyes. I can not wait to create all kinds of witty projects down the road.

I am so excited to share with you the alternate projects that Christine has created with the Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin kit this month!

If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber with me … check your inbox, your exclusive PDF details sheet for these alternate projects will be arriving soon!!


You wont be able to contain your smile as you work with this kit.  I kept thinking of all sorts of occasions and reasons to give these cards. Heck, they’d be perfect even just to make someone smile, and I think that’s reason enough 😉.  The sentiments are cute and fun and the images are nothing short of adorable.  I have to admit that I was partial to the Toast image and the mustache! 

Take a little creative time for yourself with this Lots of Pun kit and see what fun cards you can come up with. 

I’m looking forward to working with next month’s kit – looks like it will be a hearts delight ❤.

Gifts Galore: Paper Pumpkin Alternate Projects

Hello and welcome!! November’s Gifts Galore Paper Pumpkin kit is so bright and cheerful. Full of adorable festive images and beautiful colours … this is a great kit for sure!

Opening this kit was such an amazing surprise. I love the large fun holiday images and the colour combo is fun too! The size of the gift boxes was quite surprising … I really wasn’t expecting them to be as big as they are!! With this nice size there are so many options as to what to fill them with!!

Aside from the gift boxes themselves the first idea that popped into my head was that these images are perfect for a scrapbook layout! Turns out Christine and I had the same thought. I am so excited to share with you the alternate projects that she has created with the Gifts Galore Paper Pumpkin kit this month!

What a bright and cheery kit this one was!  So fun and super easy to create with.  The images are an amazing size for scrapbook layouts, plus are easily cut down and altered for card fronts and mini treat boxes. 

I assure you that once you open this kit you won’t be able to stop creating and smiling. 

Next month kit is promising one-of-a-kind cute ‘n’ quirky designs – I wonder what all the Pun is about?

Welcome it’s so nice to see you! October’s Paper Pumpkin kit Peaceful Christmas is a very pretty, shiny Christmas kit!

Peaceful Christmas: Paper Pumpkin October 2021 - YouTube

When I first opened this Paper Pumpkin kit I fell in love with the rich green and silver combination. My second thought was … that’s a lot of green … what is Christine going to come up with this time? As usual she has designed some amazing projects that I am definitely going to be recreating myself! I’m sure you are going to love them as much as I do!

This month’s Peaceful Christmas paper pumpkin kit was so easy to create with once I got going.  I was a little intimidated at first by all of the green, but I started to embrace it and my projects came together in a festive, sparkly way 😀. 

I was so happy with how well the kit coordinated with the Peaceful Place Suite from the July – December Mini Catalogue that I couldn’t help but supplement with a few pieces of the beautiful DSP to enhance the layers. 

PEACEFUL PLACE 12" X 12" (30.5 X 30.5 CM) SPECIALTY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER

I knew all of the elements and patterns would make for a fun Christmas Home Décor piece, and I had tons of product left to make five additional cards, and a few tags too! 

So excited to see what next month’s “Gifts Galore” kit brings… I see snowmen and candy canes, it’s sure to be a sweet delight!

Haunts & Harvest: Paper Pumpkin Alternate Projects

Haunts & Harvest: Paper Pumpkin Alternate Projects

Hello I am so happy you have stopped by today! September’s Paper Pumpkin kit Haunts & Harvest is a fabulous fall kit! I just love those adorable little pumpkin (or apple) treat boxes … super fun!!

When I opened up this kit I was excited to see the stamp set and these adorable boxes …. I love all things FALL!! After this excitement wore off though I couldn’t help but think … what is Christine going to design with these pieces? To me this kit looked like a little bit of an Alternate Project Challenge for sure!

But, as usual, her creativity shone through and she came up with a few great projects to share with you all again!!

If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber with me … check your inbox, your exclusive PDF details sheet for these alternate projects will be arriving soon!!


Fall is such an inspiring time of year – a time to express and send little gifts of gratitude and to be thankful for all that we have.  I was inspired by the colours and the leaves in this month’s stamp set to create a reflection page for my annual scrapbook – Grateful – Thankful – Blessed! 

Adding some basic cardstock pieces, I was able to turn some of the “pumpkin” pieces into some fall inspired greeting cards. 

I’m happy with how these alternative projects came together while still allowing me plenty of pieces to create the intended projects.  I hope you’re inspired to try your hand at creating a few different projects.

Next month is promising some beautiful “Peaceful Christmas” projects – I’ll have my cup of cocoa ready and my imagination warmed up when the box arrives at my door!
