Hello again! Are you ready for some Paper Pumpkin alternate projects? I have to say that this is one of the cutest Easter kits we have ever had! The kits just keep getting better and better! Were you able to catch my Facebook Live this afternoon when I shared my alternate projects? If not, you can watch the replay over on my YouTube Channel here. While you are there, please be sure to give my video a thumbs up and click on the subscribe button.

Let’s look at the scrapbook layout first (I added the wreath to my layout on my Facebook Live):

Here are the measurments:

  • Subtles 12″ x 12″ in Petal Pink
  • Basic White cardstock – 11 1/2″ x 11 1/2″
  • Flowering Zinnias DSP – 3″ x 11 1/2″
  • Kit card bases – 2 @ 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″

I thought this kit was so adorable and just perfect for my daughters when they were little hunting Easter Eggs. I can’t believe these photos are almost 30 years old! Which explains why they are so dark, that and they were in an old photo album; the kind with the sticky sheets. I added some elements from the Easter Bunny stamp set, like the title, flowers over the corner of one photo, the butterfly and the Easter eggs. They are stamped in Early Espresso, the color of the ink spot in the kit, and colored with our Stampin’ Blends Markers. The Happy Easter sentiment is from the Paper Pumpkin kit as is the bunny and chick die cut. I used the add on die set for this quarter’s Paper Pumpkin kits. I die cut the daffodils in a scrap of one of the printed liners in an envelope and then die cut them again in Daffodil Delight for the flower. I used my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker for adding the city and date on the die cut from the kit. I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (alcohol marker) to color the white embellishments. I really love how this turned out. I’m just sad the photos are so dark. Now let’s look at my first alternate card:

Here are the measurements:

  • Card base in Petal Pink cardstock – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Card base from kit – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Basic White cardstock – 3 3/4″ x 5″ for the inside

This printed card front is actually the front portion of the card base I used in my scrapbook layout. Now you can see why I cut mine in half – that gingham print is too cute to use as the back side of a card! lol For this take I actually followed the instructions for the card to create the front. I did add the little bow to her ear because why not? 😉 You have to agree, she looks like she needs a bow, right???

Here’s a look at the inside. The sentiment is from the Easter Bunny stamp set and I added the daffodil die cut in Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight cardstocks.

And I thought I’d use one of the envelopes from kit. Now let’s look at my second card:

Here are the measurements:

  • Card base in Thick Basic White cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Kit envelope – 2 1/4″ x 4″
  • Granny Apple Green cardstock – 3″ x 4″
  • Kit card base – 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and 1/2″ x 4 1/4″

After I attached the layers with Stampin’ Seal, I stamped the bunny from the kit on a scrap, colored with Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it. I then die cut the leaves from the add-on die set in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the daffodil in white and then colored it. I assembled the images with Mini Glue Dots and the added them to the card with dimensionals. The sentiment label is also a die from the add on set and I colored two of the dots from the kit with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

The sentiments on both the inside and the outside are from the kit.

Didn’t I tell you this kit was adorable! The March kit should be here in another week or so and comes with 2 stamp sets to celebrate 11 years of kits. And let me tell you, they are nothing like those first kits!!! If you would like to subscribe to get the April Kit, just head over here. There will be a new set of add on dies to cover the March – June kits. See? Did I tell  you the kits are getting better??? Here’s a little sneak peek of the April kit and the new die set:
