Past Paper Pumpkin Challenge Day ONE!

Hello my dear stampers,

Have you consider how much goodness is inside a Paper Pumpkin kit? You receive the kit in your mail box, which cause a myriad of emotions inside of you. You run to the kitchen (or office) excitedly  searching for a knife (or plastic letter opener :) to open your kit and FINALLY see the insides.
You open the plastic covering and start oooh and aaah as you take in the colors, the inspirational project, the instructions, embellishments, versatile stamp set and more. 

You set a date when you will be able to sit and craft without interruptions, or at least minimal interruptions. You do your creative projects and boom! All done!

But wait...you realize you still have some goodness in this box...sometimes is extra adhesives, extra enamels, labels, or die cuts, maybe some twine or ribbon. No counting, you will hold on to the cool stamps and ink spot. Now what!

On this card I used the card base from POPPIN BIRTHDAY March 2019, the labels from A LITTLE SMILE for the banner, the stars from WISH BIG July 2014, the twine from SIMPLY SNOWFLAKE November 2014 and the stamps from DAY BY DAY December 2018. 

Next kit comes around, and what happens to the last one. Gets a bit forgotten. No more samples online, no more excitement about the past kit, and you stop using that one precious set you got only a month ago. 

Let's do something about THAT!
I have been loving Paper Pumpkin from its beginnings and enjoy bringing simple alternate ideas for all to make and repeat. I enjoy bringing ideas for the Stamps only, so you can keep using these stamps over and over after your kits are done. 
I've been trying my hand at different folds and sharing them with you as well! 
Every often I share my organizational solutions and/or gift ideas! We've been given much, so that we give much! 

Now, why not focus at least once a month in what we do have instead of what we don't. Yes, let's do that. 

I started therefore a creative challenge on July 15, 2019 called 
Past Paper Pumpkin Kit Challenge, were you set yourself to seek for those leftover pieces or stamps from a past Paper Pumpkin kit and create something beautiful with it. Would you like to join?
Inside of my card uses the POPPIN BIRTHDAY cake and stamp,
stamp "happy birthday to you" from A SARA THING April 2017. Hope you are inspire to create blessings!

There is more! As a way to make this even more fun, I added the opportunity to share with others of what you have. This is how it works. On August 12th -when the new challenge goes live- I will be choosing randomly one participant of all participants to receive a gift for their participation. Now, though I will add some prizes I am opening this part to everyone to be able to add a prize for the winner of that month. Wouldn't that be exciting! 
Each giver will mail their prize directly to the monthly winner. Is an opportunity to give and encourage one another to create blessings! 

I am growing in generosity and giving the opportunity to others to do the same. Watch my video below for some ideas on what you can include. Already some Paper Pumpkin friends added shimmery sequins, a precious stamp set, twine and more is coming! 

*Unless some of my Canadian friends give me some suggestions I may need to limit gift shipping to the USA. Im open to suggestions. Message me please. 

Share your projects here inside my Stamp a Blessing closed group by August 11th ET midnight! Join me LIVE  August 12th in my Stamp a Blessing
