Another Great Year, the December 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit.

I must admit that I was not very excited about it when it arrived in the mail.  I am not into scrapbooking and just couldn't see that I would use any of the pieces in the kit. 

But, after thinking about it for a little while, I soon saw the possibilities!

The plastic overlay with the printed X's and O's placed over the graphic background paper along with a banner cut "love" note created using the rotary stamp is a perfect idea for a Valentine's Day card.  I added some Real Red Baker's Twine along the sides to complete, and done! 

Easy, Easy!

The monthly Paper Pumpkin kits are a quick and easy way to craft.  The designing and the cutting paper part of it will already be done for you, and all the supplies you'll need will be included in the kit.

But, even if a Paper Pumpkin kit isn't quite your style, don't give up on it.  Take a second look, and I know you'll come up with alternative ideas!
