Paper Pumpkin Alternative February 2022

 Hello and welcome to my monthly Paper Pumpkin alternative video and blog.  I have made 5 alternative cards and will share this one with all of you today.  To receive a video featuring the other 4 alternatives I have made subscribe to Paper Pumpkin through me and every month your subscription is active I will send a private link to my alternative video.

As usual I try to make alternatives that use as many of the kit elements as I can but there are always going to be a few items outside of the box that are needed.  One of the main extra product you will need it Basic White thick card stock to make extra base cards.  Quite often I cut up the cards in the kit to stretch the kit even further.  Extra ink colors are also helpful and when you subscribe there is an ink spot included in each months kit so you can collect  a variety of colors as you continue your subscription.

Okay, enough talking here is today's alternative card.

Now, I will say that there are some months that the kit is so beautiful or fun that I don't want to mess with it but other times, like this one, I am not so sure I like everything in the kit or the designs recommended.  There are three punch outs, one of a giraffe, a monkey and an elephant and I have to tell you the only one I thought was cute was the elephant.  But, that being said I used a part of the giraffe to make this card and I think it turned out darn cute.

This card will be going to my 12 year old grandson who got a really great report card this quarter with 5 A's and 1 B+.  

Next month's Paper Pumpkin is called Beyond the Horizon and  you have until March 10th to subscribe to receive this kit.

This looks like it is going to be beautiful and fun.  Stay tuned for more info on this kit.  In the meantime click HERE to subscribe through me.  Be sure to put my name in as your demonstrator so I can include you in my list to receive the exclusive video.

Thanks for stopping by,
