      Image result for paper pumpkin april 2015

Ever wonder what comes with Paper Pumpkin?
everything you need to create the cards or projects for the month!
you get the stamps, ink, precut everything, glue dots, twine you name it, open it up and create with a friend or your kids.  You truly will love this monthly box that comes to you scheduled for the 10th of each month.   If you don't (and I tell you, you will LOVE this)  you can cancel anytime. 

In the above kit you can see what the kit makes, but I always try to show you that you can shake things up and make a few of kits design or like me I like to make a few of my own creations with what I have on hand.   Here's what I can up with.

I personally invite YOU to sign up for Paper Pumpkin.  It's as easy as clicking on this link: make sure you list me as your demonstrator so that you receive the Father's Day kit in the mail.

My gift to you this month will be the instructions on how to make this cute card holder for Father's Day

Father's Day Card

Helllooooooo...... now I can not take credit for this clever card.  Credit goes to Carolina Evans who created this gem.   I just love everything about it!
Products needed:
Cardstock- Early espresso, crumb cake, Adventure Bound designer series paper # 137780
Accessories- Mustache framelit, Bow builder punch, 1" circle punch and 3/4" circle punch 

to make the glass piece you first punch out a 3/4" circle then punch the 1" punch around that.   Cut yourself a small rectangle piece by and then  with a handheld circle punch the very small circle.  Glue them all together to make the glass piece.

It's that time of year when our new catalog is on the horizon.  This means many of our stamp sets and accessories are retiring.
You don't want to wait to shop as these products go quickly.
