Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop - The Adventure Begins

Hello and welcome to July's Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop!
The Adventure Begins Paper Pumpkin kit is gorgeous and I'm loving the outdoorsy designs! The cards in this kit are a three fold design. You can use them as designed or trim off one of the folded pieces to use with some additional cardstock.
The card on the right side was created using the kit as designed and the card on the left I cut off one of the panels then added some Garden Green and Granny Apple Green cardstock. Watch the video below to learn how you can create these two cards.

After creating those cards I thought of camping at Charleston Lake Provincial Park because of the trees and camper images. A good excuse to stretch the kit to create a scrapbook layout! I searched through my pile of photos and found these from our 1996 fall trip. Thanksgiving long weekend camping was one of my favourite things to do with my family growing up. Autumn is the best time of year with cooler temps and colourful leaves. 
Here is a close up of the layout showing the stamping.

Perfectly Plaid with Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper

Inside the Annual Catalogue you can find the Holidays Section starting on page 88. The Tidings of Christmas suite uses the traditional colours I like to use for Christmas: greens and red. There is a coordinating stamp set & die bundle that is designed to work with the Tidings of Christmas designer series paper. But you could use any Christmas or Holiday themed stamp set with it. I've used the Season's Blessing stamp set and now the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.
The Perfectly Plaid stamp set is a carry-over set and has a matching punch. Purchasing the punch with the stamp set will help you create lovely holiday themed cards and projects. Do you own this set yet?
