A paper pumpkin thing hop

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!  Whether this is your first stop or you have just arrived from the fabulously talented, Jeanna's blog, I am so tickled to have you stop by The Creativity Cave!  This month's kit, On my Mind, is so wonderful because it contains a fantastic variety of cards!  I have some fun alternatives for you today:

The first card I just altered one of the cards from the kit to be a little different–the only thing I added was a 4 1/2 x 3 1/4" panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I love the result!

The diecut pieces are awesome, too! You can find pieces like this in the First Frost and In the Woods framelits. I'll link them below in my supplies.

Such a simple but pretty card!

Next I changed up things a little and made a set of notecards and envelopes and then used the kit to create a little pouch to keep them in–it would make a great simple gift for someone! I used Gray Granite ink for the medallion, and a 3/4" strip of white for the sentiment.  If you run out of sequins from the kit, the Woven Threads sequins from the catalog are the same (and there are a few additional colors), I've linked them in the supplies below, but I used the ones from the kit from my project.

I cut the card base down so it would be 4 1/2" wide, then I scored the two ends at 3 3/4" (1/2" above and below the existing score line) so I could create this simple pouch.A PP thing July 2

Tied it up with the linen thread from the kit.  Super quick and easy!
