Stampin’ Up! July Paper Pumpkin Kit & a Blog Candy Giveaway!!

My July Paper Pumpkin Kit arrived from Stampin’ Up! just as I was leaving for the Alaskan Cruise so I didn’t have time to pull it out of the box until now.  This kit is called Picnic Paradise and it contained all of the materials to create 4 cute picnic baskets and 12 little note cards!

I love those baskets with the plaid paper tucked inside!  Perfect for gifting!

The stamp set for this kit is has some great sentiments and the kit also included a Soft Suede ink spot!

Here are some alternative project ideas for this kit.  You can see more details and find a link to even more alternative projects for this kit here.
