Story of Elegance

Hello Crafty Friends!  Happy Friday!

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that your week was wonderful and you’re on your way to a fabulous weekend.

Today, I decided to share cards from the June 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I love that this kit coordiantes with our Countryside Corners Bundle and the Countryside Inn DSP.  For this kit, you could also purchase the add on dies to enchance your experience.

The cards for this kit are beautiful and the Paper Pumpkin Kits are perfect for crafting with friends, for the new crafter or if you need to create a card in a hurry,

Look at these beauties:

These are the cards straight from the kit as designed.  Lovely!  And the hospitality sentiment is perfect for this time of year as many of us will be traveling to visit family and friends.  It’s perfect to as a thank you for any summer gathering you attend too.

And of course, you don’t have to stop once you have assembled the kit cards.  You can keep going and create an alternate or two or five. 🙂

Here’s one of the alternates I created.

Although this kit isn’t available to order now, I wanted to highlight Paper Pumpkin and encourage you to check it out.  Paper Pumpkin kits  make great gifts !
