This month's Paper Pumpkin kit is called Cute Conversations, and it features large hearts that are reminiscent of the candy conversation hearts. The equally large, block-letter sentiments are also similar to what you'd see on those evocative, chalky candies.
The projects outlined in the directions use the hearts to make a large banner, and also pairing them up to make treat pockets. I've chosen to make a few smaller banners, and plan to use the rest of the hearts on cards and a few treat pockets.
In addition to the sentiments, the stamp set includes hearts and chevrons, some of which I stamped on the clothespins of the vertical banner. The trick of this is to stamp off once before stamping on the wood, or else the ink will bleed.
I CASE'd some of the ideas for these projects from posts on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club group on Facebook, including those of Lisa Salkeld, Karen Gibson, and Oksana Semenska.
I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
