June PPP Blog Hop Box of Sunshine

Hey there friends! One of the most fabulous things about getting the Paper Pumpkin kit each month (aside from the incredible AWESOMENESS that is Paper Pumpkin!), is creating alternative projects with the kit.  It's one of my absolute most FAVORITE things EVER! So, naturally, I LOVE doing a Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop!

In my Paper Pumpkin Groupies Facebook Group, a few months ago, there was chat about Scrapbook pages made from the kits.  I started making a point of doing a scrapbook layout for each month's kit and have really enjoyed it!

So, I chose to make this month's alternative project a scrapbook layout!  I hope you like it!

Ok, what prompted this one is that I REALLYwanted a use for those beautiful Foil Embossed envelopes. But the frame was too big to use as a layer for a card front. :-( Sad face! So I thought, instead, I could use it as a frame for a scrapbook page. Brilliant!

I also used a few of the die cut fruit pieces, an extra polka dot sticker and a label. I've intentionally left these all blank because I have to get some photos printed.  I'm TERRIBLE about taking a million photos but then NOT getting them printed. Anyone else out there with me? lol.

This section is big enough to mat two 3 1/5" x 5" photos, plus a journal section if I choose.  I actually just cut one of the card bases in half and trimmed it down a touch. Easy peezy!

Overall, this layout was really simple to put together and used only a sheet of Bumblebee 12" x 12" cardstock outside of the Paper Pumpkin kit. Gotta love that!

Thanks for the inspiration! I think I too will make it a thing to do a page with each kit!! Brilliant idea! Thank you!

  6. Love your scrapbook layout! Bright and fun!
