Fun with Watermelons and Pineapples

What do watermelons and pineapples have in common?…The June 2017 Paper Pumpkin of course! This kit was a sweet success!


Last week I got together with a few of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers to put our kits together.  It’s always fun to see what alternative projects we can come up with. (Pinterest is our friend!!!) Previously I shared a pineapple welcome card I created. You can see that post HERE.  We had lots of fun sharing ideas and making different cards, bags, and boxes.  We took the contents of the kit but didn’t actually make any of the intended projects. LOL  We made 6 cards (3 of them were fun fold cards) and a box. I took some photos to share with you.






All this creating with watermelons and pineapples made us crave a little something sweet. Yum!


You too can get Paper Pumpkin delivered to your home each month and have fun creating cards and projects.  Today is the last day to sign up to receive the July kit. It’s always a fun surprise!

Paper Pumpkin Video and Alternative Ideas…June 2017

If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber you should have received your June 2017 kit. If you are not a subscriber, I can’t imagine why not. I love my Paper Pumpkin kits! You really get a great bang for your buck in each monthly kit…a stamp set, ink spots, adhesives, and all the supplies to make either cards, 3D projects, or home decor. This month is a great combination with cards and bags. I love that it is all inclusive so I can grab and take anywhere to create on the go! I took my kit to the beach with me. Check out this month’s video to see everything that’s included in the kit and how quickly you can create the intended projects.

Paper Pumpkin subscribers can order refill kits for just $8. That makes each project less than $1 to complete! Refill kits include everything except the ink and stamp set. Click HERE to check out past kits that are available to purchase.

What I love is I can continue to create wonderful cards and projects using the stamp sets from my kits. Order a set of note cards & envelopes and you are good to go with 20 more cards for just $6! I just love this month’s kit! I found some sweet treats at the beach which go perfect with the watermelon bag!


Here’a an alternative idea I  made using the Pineapple (retired) and Banners For You stamp sets and the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I fussy cut the pineapple.


You can check out more alternative ideas on Pinterest or join the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club on Facebook. Here’s a showcase of some ideas I found to inspire you! The first two are by Debbie Henderson.
