Did you get the May 2017 Sprinkled with Love Paper Pumpkin kit?! What a yummy theme...donuts! It's been fun playing and creating with this kit. (And my boys really appreciated that they got to eat the props after this photo shoot.)
If you have never been a subscriber to Paper Pumpkin, I hope you check out what I have to share. Then scroll down to learn more about the 25% special going on for new subscribers. It's a great time to give it a try!
You can of course make the cards as instructed in the enclosed directions, or do what I do...come up with alternate projects. Each month I share my "outside the box" ideas with these kits. And today I am sharing what I came up with using the contents of this May 2017 Sprinkled with Love Paper Pumpkin kit.
I wasn't able to fit them all into the video. So my scrapbook pages, Project Life layout and one other fun card idea are shown only in the photos below. I hope you get some inspiration from my Sprinkled with Love kit ideas:
In the video
- a sugar donut card
- how to make more round donut card bases
- turning one donut into 3
- a chocolate glazed donut tag for a gift box
- how to make mini donuts
- other non-donut ideas (cheese, a record, inner tubes...)
- a glimpse of the card I shared on May 25th
Not in the video
- a Project Life layout
- a 12x12 scrapbook layout
- and a simple fun-fold card
Watch the video first to get tips, measurements and directions. Then scroll down to see close-up photos of the projects and a list of extra supplies I used to make them.
Here are photos of the cards that the directions in the kit share how to make. (Click on each picture to see it a bit larger.)
My boys' favorites were these two that looked like actual donuts.
When you assemble the blue card, be sure to put your Dimensionals for the message banner on top of the twine so the twine stays in place.
Here are close-up photos of the alternate projects that I created from this kit that I shared in the video above. (Click on each picture to see it a bit larger.)
SUGAR DONUT CARD
SIMPLE SPRINKLED DONUT CARD (CREATING ADDITIONAL CARD BASES)
"TURNING ONE DONUT INTO 3" CARD
(Another version with an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base.)
GIFT BOX WITH CHOCOLATE GLAZED DONUT GIFT TAG
(I turned the Paper Pumpkin box inside out.)
OTHER NON-DONUT IDEAS (cheese, record, inner tube)
Here are photos of my other alternate projects that I created from this kit that weren't shared in the video. (Click on each picture to see it a bit larger.)
A PROJECT LIFE LAYOUT
(I share how to make the mini donuts in the video.)
(I took these next two photos in bright sunlight to show the sparkle of the Dazzling Diamonds glitter.)
12x12 SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT
Prom or wedding pictures would look great on this layout.
To get the circular accents on the page I cut one blue card base into two circles. Then I die-cut the center out of the one with the gold lines.
I cut the gold line-accented piece into four sections and I cut the back of the card into two half circles.
I placed two of the gold line-accented pieces and one of the 1/2 circles in the upper right corner of the left page. I placed the other two gold line-accented pieces and the other 1/2 circles in the lower left corner of the left page.
And I used the circle center from the gold outline side for a floral base journaling section on the right page.
A SIMPLE FUN-FOLD CARD (two made with a full donut)
Here is the easel card closed.
This is the inside.
And with the top folded and set in place...
the donut sections are connected.
I hope you like what I shared or at least gained some sort of helpful tip to use in your own paper crafting projects.
