PPP Blog Hop - So Cool


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!

The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the April Paper Pumpkin kit: "So Cool".

These are the original projects:


  • Kit includes enough supplies to make 12 fresh, fun-shaped cards—6 popsicles and 6 blank semicircles to color—and coordinating envelopes. Kit includes card bases, 2 full sticker sheets, decorative die-cut pieces, embellishments, and more.
  • Envelope size: 4-1/2" x 5-3/4" (11.4 x 14.6 cm)
  • Coordinating colors: Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay, Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Old Olive, Terracotta Tile
  • Coordinates with the Ice Cream Corner Suite from our January–June 2021 Mini Catalog.

These are my alternate projects:

Card 1

This card is a shaker card. I used the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles for the inside of the shaker. I used the kit stamp set, watercolour paper, and water coloured the stamped image.

Card 2

This card is made using the inside of the envelope, the kit stamp set, and the sticker sheet.

  • The supplies used for my alternate cards will be listed at the bottom.
