A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Manly Moments

It's time for another A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! I think I let out a squeal when I opened the May kit - Manly Moment. This kit is right up my alley with the outdoors theme. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I think you're really going to like the alternative projects that I made with this kit, and I know you'll enjoy my demonstrator friends' projects too!

For this kit, I made an alternate card (like I always do), and I used one of the envelopes to make a super fun gift bag!

The gift bag was super simple. This technique is one that's been around for awhile, and it took me no time at all to put it together. You can watch how I did it step by step in my video below:

The card also came together really quickly. You may have noticed that I've been working on some more layering in my projects lately - I just love the look of layered cards!

Rather than use those trees on the card base, I decided to layer them on the badge punch out from the kit. I used the splotches from the Swirly Bird stamp set, my trusty leaf punch, copper and some of the leaf trinkets from the Natures Poem suite add just the right touches to my layers.

You can watch how I created this card step-by-step in the video below:
