You won’t want to miss my May 2018 Paper Pumpkin alternate project! This card is made using a lot of the products in the May 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit, but I added a brand new stamp set to it called Rooted In Nature.  I hope you like this stamp set because you are going to see a lot of projects from me in the coming months.  I am slightly addicted to it so it was perfect to grab to add to the kit.

If you struggle with making masculine cards, you will love both the May 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit and the upcoming Rooted in Nature stamp set that will be available June 1st.

May 2018 Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project

Each month I like to take my kit and make a few alternate projects.  I either use just the stamps in the kit with other products, or I simply add to the kit.  This months kit was the perfect masculine kit.  You can make cards for all occasions for the men in your life!!!  For this one I just added the trees–everything else was in the kit!  BUT, I made it into a gift card holder!

May 2018 Paper Pumpkin Manly Moments

May 2018 Paper Pumpkin Alternate

This was super simple to do because the card base was already scored.  I just added a little adhesive to make the pocket.

Card Tutorial

Every month I send my Paper Pumpkin subscribers 8 tutorials for making alternate projects with their monthly kit.  The kits are great “as is,” but this is the perfect way to use your creativity to do a little more or a little different with the kit.  Want to see what the tutorials are like?  Here is just one of the tutorials my subscribers will get this month.  CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD tutorial for today’s project.


Manly Moments Kit

This months kit was called Manly Moments.  If you missed getting the kit, the REFILLS are still available and they are an incredible value!  You get all of these supplies, which is enough to make 10 full size cards, for just $8.  This kit will work good with all different greetings that I am sure you already have.  So, if you’d like to stock up on supplies to quickly and easily make some masculine cards, order the May Pumpkin Kit refill before they are gone. This is what the cards look like if you make them all just like the kit instructions.

Look at all these supplies–wowzers!  All of this for just $8.  SPECIAL NOTE… must be a subscriber to order the refill kits.  You can SUBSCRIBE right now, and then you can order as many of the refills as you want.



You are not going to want to miss the June kit–so it’s a perfect time to subscribe, pick up this great value on a card kit, and then check out Paper Pumpkin in June.  I do have a bit of a HINT HINT for you in regards to the June Kit.  The June Paper Pumpkin kit is going to coordinate with a suite of products in the brand new catalog!  hhhhmmmmm……any guesses what suite it may be????
