Hey There Friend

One of the reasons that I wanted to try the For the Makers boxes is because I want to figure out if there is a certain type of craft that I’m drawn to.  It has a variety so I figured it would be a fun way to try things out.  Of course since I didn’t really do them, I’m still waiting to figure it out.

In the meantime, I found another box to try out (I love subscription boxes!) called Paper Pumpkin.  It is by the scrapbooking company Stampin’ Up.  I’ve never really been interested in scrapbooking itself but the description promised a monthly project kit and I was looking for something new to try.

Well I’m only one box in and I LOVE it.  I’m going to have to research what things people do besides scrapbooking but I can’t wait to do my next project.

The first kit was making cards.  All the materials came in the pack and I just had to follow the instruction.  The thing that took the longest was figuring out how the glass block worked with the stamps.  After seeing one in action on YouTube, I got it all sorted and went to work. It was fun assembling everything and stamping. When I was finished I sent the notes out into the world.  Crafty and useful.  We may have a crafting winner!
