A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop ~ Sprinkled With Love

Hi everyone! Welcome to "A Paper Pumpkin Thing" Blog Hop! This is our second round of Paper Pumpkin  hopping, & I am so delighted to have you here today! You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander's blog. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. If you have been hopping along, you would have just arrived via Sara Levin's blog. Sara is definitely artful when it comes to ink! I am sure she amazed you with her Paper Pumpkin alternative project today! Make sure to click on the next button at the end of this post so that you can carry along and enjoy the rest of the Paper Pumpkin projects on display today! You are sure to be impressed! 

When I first laid eyes on this month's Paper Pumpkin kit I knew right away where my heart was going to lead me! I have had these photos of my daughter stowed away on my hard drive waiting to be set free for the past 2 years! Getting these photos into my treasured albums brings me such a sense of joy! I will now have them to cherish forever! I hope you enjoy today's Paper Pumpkin scrapbook ideas, as much as my daughter enjoys donuts! 

I of course added a few coordinating supplies from my Stampin' Up! stash to complete these 12 by 12 layouts. The wonderful thing about the Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin kits is the supplies are guaranteed to coordinate with the Stampin' Up! family of products. This coordination makes it so easy to expand on the kits! You can make the kit project as is, or be innovative & put it to use in a way that works for you! 

Did you notice on may layout today that I have some hidden journaling? I really didn't want to take up space on my scrapbook pages with a journal box as it would have meant less room for these adorable photographs. What was the solution? Well I adhered one of the little baggies from this month's kit underneath my photo mat as shown in the picture above. I then took the cutsie lil donut card and adhered my journaling to the inside. That donut tucks perfectly into the baggie so that I not only have these photos to admire, but the memory documentation to go along with them.  

Check out what is included in this month's kit as well as the intended projects in the photos below. Paper Pumpkin is an amazing value these days! Seriously, I just used a touch of the materials from this month's kit for my project today! I still have more than enough supplies remaining to make a bunch of the cards that are shown here!

  1. What a fabulous scrapbook page!

  2. A girl after my own heart as you tell a story on your scrapbook page. Love it!

    1. I love that you love scrapbooking Cathy! #scrapbooker4life 💖

  3. I love this! You had the perfect pictures for it. I considered doing a scrapbook layout too but didn't have any pictures to use. My dogs eating donuts would not have been a great idea. I love the hidden journaling with the bag - so perfect.

    1. Dogs eating donuts would be soo cute though! 😉 💖

  4. So sweet! This makes me really want a donut just like the one she's eating, but we don't have Tim Horton's here. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank U! Too bad we can't ship donuts in the mail hey? 💖

  5. Love the layout! That face is priceless!

  6. Oh my goodness! I adore this layout! Talk about creativity! Scrapbooking was my first love! :)

  7. Those pictures are PRECIOUS! Love the joy on her face and the way you added the journaling space without losing photo space, genius!

  8. How perfect are those pictures?? Soooo sweet!

    1. Thanks Dena! The pictures kinda make the page don't they? Sweet like donuts! 💖
