I need to be creative.  Not only because I enjoy making things, it keeps my brain working creatively in other areas as well.  I’m still a little short on time this week – last week of band camp before returning to what passes as normal here.  I love these weeks but find myself juggling a bit more than usual.  I’m sure that many of you face the same time challenges regularly.  Well my creativity was rescued today by Paper Pumpkin.

You see, I wanted to make something but not take too much time thinking about it and prepping it.  I’ve got some baking and a few errands to run before band camp.   Since my Paper Pumpkin kit for August had arrived I reached for it.

Let me share a couple of samples I created.

August Paper Pumpkin Small Striped card from



So what’s not to love here?  The cute striped mini card with the laser cut heart overlay.  To that I added one of the Mossy Meadow die cut circles and a Melon Mambo sequin (LOVE!).  Then, I pulled out the “seriously amazing” sentiment, inked it with Hello Honey and stamped on one of the die cut banners.  E-A-S-Y and creative.

Did I mention the cute Melon Mambo dotted envelope?


I have to tell you I love these mini cards but I had a vision to biggie size them and get twice the mileage.

To get twice the mileage, cut the striped card in half.  Yes! it is printed front and back so you’ll get two for layering.  I’ve added the same layout as the small card above to a standard sized Whisper White card.  It’s clean, simple, easy.  Just creative enough to tide me over until I have a little more time.


Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to…
