July 2018 Paper Pumpkin

Hey everyone! I have some of my July Paper Pumpkin projects for you today. This month’s kit was called Picnic Paradise, and it was simply wonderful!! It was summery, fun, and just all around picnic-y! I jumped in right away and created a few alternate ideas for you!


These are the fun 3×3 cards and baskets that you CAN make if you follow the kit instructions.


I think the strawberry one is my favorite! Just look at how cute they are.



There are enough supplies to make 12 cards (4 each Blueberries, Strawberries, and Apples) and 4 baskets.

But, as usual, I HAD to see what else I could make with these supplies. And oh my goodness! I can’t wait to show you this first one. (It is my favorite alternate project idea from this kit that I came up with so far!)

This is a Perfect picnic kit. Right?! And what is a big problem at picnics? Ants! So that’s what made me create this card. Ta-da!


Aren’t these little critters super cute!?! I made these guys using a 1/2″ circle punch and cutting a little strip of black cardstock  into little pieces for the legs and antenna.


The best thing about summer, in my opinion, is Summer berries. So, I always make some baked goods with FRESH summer berries. I made some Blueberry Scones this week and that got me thinking…how about a recipe card?




Don’t those Blueberries look scrumptious? And not just the ones in the scone… 🙂


I used several of the blueberries from the kit to decorate the front of my recipe card.
