July Paper Pumpkin “Thanks A Latte” 

I loved working with this months Paper Pumpkin.   It was so much fun and I just didn’t want to stop.   Here’s the cards made by following the kit instructions.   Must of the Alternative projects were created by using left overs from the kit.   The parts that normally would have been tossed in the trash, some card bases, and a few other items.

After creating the cards in the box I wanted to come up with a few other creations.   So here are the alternative projects I came up with.   Full instructions for my alternative projects are available to my Paper Pumpkin Subscribers.  This is just one of the benefits of being a my Paper Pumpkin Subscriber with me.   I offer my subscribers a free membership to my Paper Club which is called the Pumpkin Patch Club (where they get exclusive offers, and detailed PDF instructions of my alternative projects.)

So to go completely outside the box I created an Art journal page and a mixed Media Canvas.  So you can see that your don’t always have to be used on cards, or the normal things you think of.

For the Canvas I used some of the waste to create some raised areas, as well as the tissue paper in the box.   I even stamped the cup image on it, as well as the canvas itself.  Featuring Tangerine Tango, Hello Honey ink, and some retired DSP and Washi Tape.   It was a great way to use my stuff that was retired.
