Well it was on sale and I purchased it and came home and attempted to make it. Here is what the notepad looked like and my finished one.















I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out for my first attempt! It was a bit time consuming, but worth it. I used our Soho Subway DSP and the Hello Lovely stamp set! What do you think?

Pedal Praise August Paper Pumpkin Kit

Hi friends! I received my Paper Pumpkin kit for August so today I'm sharing the projects that I made. The kit is called Pedal Praise.

Think Bicycle...I was surprised when I received this kit! It had colors in it that I would have never thought to use. Let me step back a bit...I said surprised and that is exactly what this kit is all about...the element of surprise. I never know what I will receive. So I was surprised with the colors...Bermuda Bay and Baked Brown Sugar along with Crushed Curry and Raspberry Ripple. Now that I have played with them I like them alot! I made the 1 card as it is featured with the kit and then I made it my way. So here are my 2 finished cards.







The first card is how it is suggested, except I added some bling to the spokes of the wheels of the bike! The second card is my way. Which card do you like? On the second card, I used my Big Shot, my Chalk Talk Framelits and added some ribbon.

Remember when you sign up this month for Paper Pumpkin you get two months for $10. The normal subscription is $19.95. Use this special Promo code: PUMPKINDEAL and this link to sign up.
