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 July Paper Pumpkin kit:  Picnic Paradise.  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 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.

The supplies in the Paper Pumpkin kit each month are more than sufficient to make whatever projects that that particular month and many leftovers.  I like to them to take them to another level by making a scrapbook layout each month.  These layouts from from March, May and another one from June to show you just how versatile these kits can be.
