When I saw the beachy theme and the sentiments in the included stamp set, I went to the Waves ofContinue reading “August 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternative”

June 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternative (#2)

Yesterday’s alternative did not use the Countryside Corner Dies (which really went so well with the kit): But today’s alternative does use it!!

The outdoorsy-theme of July’s Paper Pumpkin kit is soo cute – take a look: Fireflies, campers, starry nights….It surely captures summer fun. But when I saw the one style with the trees in the cut out – my mind drifted away from summer and right to Christmas.
