We are officially moved into our "new" house. After a couple days of unpacking and trying to get organized (but not completely succeeding by any stretch of the imagination), I decided to take a little creativity break.
Before we moved, I posted . . .
. . . and bemoaning the fact that there were such aDORable contents to the November 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit, and, just when I needed it the most desperately, I couldn't indulge in Creative Therapy because my acrylic blocks were packed away who knows where.
I did go to a craft store to purchase one acrylic block so I could work on the kit, but discovered that I would have to buy a set of them. Since my Stampin' Up! beauties were packed away and would be available shortly, I just could not bring myself to buy another brand, only to use them one time. So I opted to not buy them. And decided to sit and wait . . .
Well, the time finally arrived last night, and in my sketchy work area, not yet deserving enough of the name Creation Station, I created.
Anyway, this is what the projects from the kit are supposed to look like if you follow the instructions:
They are really cute, but I don't need any gift tags. I already have tons. I loved the idea of the tag though, so I incorporated it into a cute card that only required a few non-kit things. And this is what I came up with:
What I added to the contents of the kit to create this card was a snippet of Silver Glimmer Paper, a leftover piece of last year's Designer Series Paper (the snowflakes), a half sheet of my own Lost Lagoon cardstock, and a bit of Whisper White cardstock. Oh yeah, I embossed the Whisper White with the cute flurry embossing folder.
Don't you love the shimmer and shine the Glimmer Paper adds?
And the Simply Snowflake Paper Pumpkin kit came with this wonderful sentiment for inside the card. Perfect, isn't it?
Now, hoping I can soon work with some of the other components of the kit. Stay tuned!
