January 2023 Paper Pumpkin: Key to My Heart Alternative Project Ideas + Video

Do you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin? In this week's episode of SUnday Stamping with Susan & Julie, Mom and I shared alternative project ideas for the January 2023 Key to My Heart Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love Paper Pumpkin kits because it's perfect for busy crafters like me. Pull it out when you need a quick project and don't have time to design it yourself! 
The Key to My Heart Paper Pumpkin Kit included materials to make 9 cards: 3 each of 3 designs. You can make up the cards exactly as designed to share your message of love with family and friends. But you know me! I love the challenge of using the pieces in the Paper Pumpkin kit to create alternative projects. So of course, I had to make a few projects of my own!

I have fond memories of trading valentine cards in elementary shcool. Each year, we would decorate a shoebox to recieve valentines during the class party. I channeled those mini valentine cards for the next project. I cut the cards and envelopes from the Paper Pumpkin kit in half to create four mini cards out of two! Use a 1" x 3" piece of designer paper (scored in half at 1/2") to seal the half envelopes.

I love the bright colors in the Butterfly Kisses Designer Paper! Even if you aren't a fan of buterflies, you can mix and match these fun patterns with many other stamp sets. I used the Sale-a-Bration Adorable Owls stamp set to make these fun fold birthday cards in December! Not a fan or cute critter stamps? Substitute the stamps and paper and make this card for ANY occasion!

VIDEO: Stampin' Up! Easter Bunny Stack, Cut, & Shuffle Technique  ~ www.juliedavison.com #stampinup #saleabration

Inspired by a swap card that I received from Suzanne Raddatz, I created my own version of the Stack, Cut, and Shuffle technique to make three cards mixing and matching pieces from the Dandy Designs Paper Pack. I love the coordinating patterns in this Sale-a-Bration gift. You can get it FREE with a $100 order during Sale-a-Bration! This JUMBO paper pack is perfect for spring, which made me think of the new Easter Bunny Bundle. Here are the cards that I created. I rotated the layout and did it three ways. Which one do you prefer? Leave a comment and let me know!

Watch the replay of my 12 Days of Christmas video to see me create these cards with the Dandy Designs Designer Paper! After the video, I ended up redoing the tags and coloring them all with Stampin' Blends. I like the way the color pops against the designer paper!
