Focal Friday's ~ My Paper Pumpkin ~ "Step It Up"

Welcome back to my Focal Friday Series. Blues and Yellows have always been a favorite color combination ever since I fell into quilting years ago. The colors just pop when put together. I hope you will find this focal interesting and that it inspires you to create something this week.

Today I am sharing My Paper Pumpkin crafting kit of the month from Stampin' Up! This was my very first one and I really had fun opening my happy mail. This month's kit features every supply you need to create a fun set of little pocket card/tags.

Each kit includes ink, stamps, and all paper supplies to make 6+ projects. It is well worth the subscription price of only $19.99 a month!!!

The above two photos show you the basic design included in the kit. There are lots of exclusive photo polymer sentiment stamps so you can actually make the inside phrase say numerous things. I just think these little paper bows are just adorable. The kit even included two colors of twine for that little bit of coordinating detail.

In this "Stepped Up" version of the card/tag I simply added a few matching candy dots to the stamped flowers and a coordinating piece of floral designer series paper from the Painted Blooms Collection. This collection is a limited set of DSP which is available ONLY until June 2nd from our Occasions Catalog. Here is a closer photo of this amazing paper. It has to be my all time favorite from Stampin' Up!

On a FUNNY note... did not realize I used the "Love you DUDE" with the floral "Girly" paper....Too funny! Sometimes you just have to roll with it ya know?

Just one last matching item totally not related to the Paper Pumpkin Kit but since the colors matched I thought I would share. THANKS for stopping by and visiting again :-) If you would love to receive a monthly dose of surprise happy mail from Stampin' Up! simply Click HERE! to sign up :-)
