Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop for You Are My Anchor this month!  All of the participants here are fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share our enthusiasm for this box of fun and creativity.

The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the April Paper Pumpkin kit:  You Are My Anchor.  I hope you enjoy the projects and find inspiration along the way.

Here is my 2-page scrapbook layout with these gorgeous products. I modified them to use them in a variety of ways for my project.  Inspiration comes when you step out of the “box” with me and do something completely different.  Just play and see where it takes you.

My grandson’s name is Max and we always are up to some kind of adventure.  This summer we already have vacation plans so this will work out great.  If you decided to try this, you could leave off the “WITH MAX” and add another photo or two.

These embellishments made it so easy to add interest on these pages.  I used several of the small stamps in Night of Navy ink to create depth on the background.

Here I even used the tissue paper that comes in the box as water for my beach scene, pretty fun!  I also used the twine to wrap the lifesaver and layered it for even more depth and wrapped the twine around one of the photo mounts, too.
Here is another alternative project I made that Max can have after our trip as a little mini book.  So much fun to play with all of these products!
