November 30, 2017 4 Comments

Hi! and welcome to my blog.  Today is the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Back in Plaid.  The design team are sharing alternative creations for this month’s super cute Paper Pumpkin kit.  I know you’re going to love these ideas for ways to get more from your kit.

The November Paper Pumpkin kit contained lots of cute goodies!

I loved the cute stockings in the kit and thought you might have too!

So, I used other supplies to recreate the look of those cute stockings and of course use the wonderful stamp set.

Can you tell I thought they were cute?

First, I cut Crumb Cake cardstock with the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits.

Next, I cut a cuff for the stocking from Merry Little Christmas designer paper.

And then, I colored the white part of the design

with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Using Old Olive cardstock, I punched two sets of leaves.

Then, I created a banner tag using a stamp from Back in Plaid.

Once the ink had dried, I colored the tag with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.

It gives it a kind of rustic/Americana look.

Next, I used my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color some Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

When the twine was dry, I pulled it apart.

This gives it the look of an unraveled sweater thread.

And is a great way to have more Cherry Cobbler thread

once you’ve used what is in the kit

Finally, I stamped and embossed the tree from Back in Plaid

before punching and adding it to my stocking.

For my second project, I wanted to stay with the same rustic/Americana Christmas feel.

I used one of the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes.

First, I wrapped it in a piece of Merry Little Christmas designer paper.

Once again, I colored the white spaces.

Next, I added a punched set of leaves.

Over that, you’ll find another piece of the colored Baker’s Twine.

The sentiment from Back in Plaid was stamped in Dapper Denim from the kit.

After it was punched, I took my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends

and carefully colored the edge of the circle.

Those are my two alternative projects for the Back in Plaid kit.

    Nice projects! Nice way to use the stocking, but not use the stocking. =)

      Thanks Audra! I just couldn’t alter those stockings and…I wanted MORE

    Great ideas Sara. I’ve been waiting on my tiny treat boxes to arrive. They have been on backorder.

    • Sara Levin November 30, 2017 at 2:01 pm

      Thanks Monika! I completely understand those boxes being on backorder — they’re one of my craft room staples.
