Family First

My April Paper Pumpkin kit arrived last week & it's all about family. How perfect in this time of isolation that we get to celebrate those so dear to us. I loved the stamps but to be honest the colours in the kit were not my favourites. So....I decided to redesign the cards using materials in the kit plus ink spots & stamps from previous kits. 

Here's a parade of alternatives.

With the current pandemic situation, my P.P. Peeps & I were unable to meet in person so we did a virtual part via Zoom. It was so good to see everyone & share my designs with them We all worked together & made the four cards above.

Here are a couple more cards for inspiration - designs by Mary Fish & Shel Anderson.

Next month's kit promises a sneak peak at some new 2020-2022 In-colours - I cannot wait.

  1. Great cards, all of them. I agree with your statement about the kit's colors, I didn't care for them myself. my favorites of these are the pink flower, embossing, and the ornate layers. they are all nice. I agree with you also, about NOT hiding that panel you have on the back of card base in the first card. I didn't want to cover it up!! Now, you've given me options, so I don't have too! TFS!

    1. Thanks Gloria! So glad that you found some inspiration.I so enjoy "expanding" these kits!
