February class recap

Okay, I didn’t actually get to hold my January Paper Pumpkin workshop due to Seattle Snow-Mageddon 2019. (I know people in other parts of the country think we’re a bunch of crybabies over the eight or so inches of snow we got this last weekend, but please before you judge, try driving around a hilly city that has a minimum number of snowplows and a bunch of people only who know how to drive in the rain.) Our storm had a positive effect on my paper-crafting though. I had plenty of extra time to sit down and do some creating and blog posting.

As per usual, I’ll give a quick rundown of the January Paper Pumpkin kit contents. Since Valentines Day occurs in February, the kit contained the supplies to make these treat boxes.

The stamp set includes an image of diagonal lines, a trail of tiny hearts, one large heart, one small bird, one big bird, and a chameleon with an insect on his tail. The sentiments are: You’re one chameleon; For You, My friend; To: From:; love you; You’re so fly.’ Be Mine; Happy Valentine’s Day; and, Be my Valentine.

The treat box idea is cute, but my daughters aren’t at an age where you bring cards/treats to all of your classmates, so I have limited use for them. However, the stamp set included with this month’s kit is very versatile.

Here’s a notecard I made. Other than the stamp set, I didn’t use any supplies from the kit.

Card Recipe:
Paper: Whisper White, So Saffron, Blackberry Bliss, Lemon-Lime Twist, metallic black, Tropical Escape DSP
Ink: Memento Black
Markers: So Saffron, Blackberry Bliss, Lemon-Lime Twist
Embellishments: Striped metallic ribbon, Dimensionals

For this card, my only addition to the kit supplies was a sheet of cardstock for the base. I cut up the pillow boxes to use as design elements. The great thing about the treat boxes is that they’re reversible, so I only “sacrificed” one pillow box to make the card.

Finally, my last alternative for the January kit is a double slider card. A tutorial for making this cute double-slider card is in the works.
