A Paper Pumpkin First

Today at SSI we are talking about our favorites on Friday and my favorite is the latest Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I got it on Monday and couldn't wait to do it.  In fact I did it that day, right away.  Here is a peek at the instructions:

The kit makes 8 super cute shaker cards that are super easy to make.  They will be perfect to send thank you notes for someone hosting Thanksgiving or just a thinking about you note.  Here are some close ups of the cards I made:

Cards can be made either direction and I just followed the directions.  It is hard to see in the pictures but the Very Vanilla background is slightly embossed with the a diagonal stripe which adds an elegant touch.  The rich colors of the card stock and sequins make this card perfect for the fall season.  I wish we could by those sequins because they are beautiful.  The directions to make the shaker cards were so easy to follow and now I just want to make more shaker cards!  I can't wait until the refills are available for this kit!

Head back over to SSI for more of the Design Team's favorites on this fabulous Friday!


  1. Adorable! Shaker cards are my favorite! I'm jumping on a plane in 2 days & will pack my Paper Pumpkin box with me... great to have on trips! Maybe I'll get some relatives to stamp with me!

  2. I too sat right down and put mine together! Loved this month's Paper Pumpkin!
