My share for today is another of Stampin' Up's One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate project that I designed casing a Pocket Box project on page 64 of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  I combined the One in a Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit with Stampin' Up's new Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set and the Pocket Framelits Dies.


Let's take a look:



I made another Pocket Treat Holder (directions are on my blog post from yesterday) today only this time, I filled it with candies and left off the little side Label.  These Pockets are so easy, fun and very addicting to make!

 
For this Pocket Treat Holder, I made a little flagged Banner.


Using SU's Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Melon Mambo Cardstock.  I trimmed it out to measure 5/8" x 3" and flagged the right end with my Triple Banner Punch.  I adhered the Banner to my Pocket with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 
I fussy cut out one of the Pineapples from the Pre-Printed Card Bases in the One in a Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit and adhered it to the end of my Banner with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 
That's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!

Stampin' Up! One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Project, Pocketful of Sunshine, Pocket Framelits

Well, I guess when you are declared a State of Emergency that the Fire Department is assigned to go out and check on everyone door-to-door.  I didn't know that.  So, we had two Fire Fighters come to our house yesterday to make sure we were o.k. and to access the damage from all the flooding.  It is sad to see all the flooding in the area, people without homes and all the roads that are washed out.  It is kind of neat though to have someone come and check on you to make sure you are o.k.  We had two of our fruit trees come right out of the ground from all the water, a BIG sink hole in the back yard over the tube that goes from the pond to the river and two of our bridges washed away on the back of our property.  So, we can't even get to the back of our property now until we can build new bridges  I'm thankful though as it could have been much worse.

My share for today is Stampin' Up's One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate project that I designed casing a Pocket Box project on page 64 of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  I combined the One in a Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit with Stampin' Up's new Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set and the Pocket Framelits Dies.


Let's take a look:



This is a really cute project designed by Stampin' Up only I made mine with the contents from Stampin' Up's One in a Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit and SU's new Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set and Pocket Framelits Dies.  Isn't it neat!

 
Using SU's new Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set, I stamped two Pockets and the center Stitching onto one of the Gift Bags from the One in a Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit.

I stamped the little Label Tag and the HBD in Emerald Envy Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.

Using SU's new Pocket Framelits Dies, I die cut out the two Pockets and the little Label Tag.

I trimmed out a piece from another one of the Gift Bags to measure 1-1/2" x 7-1/2" for the sides of the Pocket.  You can make the sides any dimension that you want.  If you want a skinnier Pocket, trim out your piece to measure 3/4" x 7-1/2" or 1" x 7-1/2".

I scored the side piece at 2-1/4", 3-3/4" and 5-1/4".

I adhered the little Label Tag to the front side of the Pocket die cut.

I adhered SU's Tear & Tape to all of the Pocket flaps and then adhered the side piece to the two Pockets.


I trimmed out another piece from the Gift Bag to measure 3/4" x 7-1/2" and adhered each end to the inside of the Pocket for a handle.

 
Using SU's new Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set, I stamped the Money stamp in Basic Black Ink onto Whisper White, water colored it with my Aqua Painter and Emerald Envy Ink and fussy cut it out. 

I stamped the Glasses onto Melon Mambo Cardstock with Basic Black Ink and die cut them out with the Pocket Framelits Dies.  Using SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle, I applied the Glue to each Lens on the Glasses and let them dry.


Using SU's new Lemon Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon, I tied a bow around 3 miniature candy bars, wrapped some of the Cotton Paper from the Kit around them and placed them in the Pocket.

  
 When the Money stamped image was dry, I placed it in the Pocket.


When the Glasses were dry, I placed them in the Pocket too!


Darling little project!  Quick and Easy and oh-so-Cute!!!


That's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!

Stampin' Up! One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Project

Well, the rain didn't go away.  It came down in sheets for over 3 hours.  Two of our fruit trees are laying on the ground.  We have a BIG sink hole over the tube going from the pond to the river.  The pond was overflowed right up to our pole barn; but, has dropped 6 feet now.  My Husband couldn't make it to work this morning as the roads are impassable.  Cars are in ditches and debris is floating in the water current going over the roads.  You can't even get to WalMart and some employee's at Kohl's and WalMart were stranded inside the stores.   Midland's Baseball Diamonds are under water.  I've not ever seen flooding this bad in Midland.  I hope all the water recedes soon.  It's just crazy!!!

My share for today is Stampin' Up's One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit Pocket Envelope alternate project that I designed.


Let's take a look: 


I cut apart one of the Gift Bags that is in the Kit.  I used the largest square (front of the Gift Bag) and trimmed it down to 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" which includes about a 1/4" flap on both sides and the bottom.  I adhered Tear & Tape Adhesive on the 3 flaps.

I trimmed the second square (back of the Gift Bag) down to 4" x 4-1/4".

I removed the protective liner of the Tear & Tape Adhesive and adhered the two sides and bottom together to create a Pocket Envelope.

 
Using SU's new Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, I punched two borders from Melon Mambo Cardstock.  I adhered one border to the bottom of the Pocket Envelope and one inside the top of the Pocket Envelope.

 
The Cotton Paper in the kit is really neat.  It has the Watermelon Pits printed on the paper.  I inserted a half sheet of the Cotton Paper into my Pocket Envelope.

 
Sorry my picture turned out so bad.  Sometimes it's hard to capture white on white in a photo.

Anyways, I trimmed out the back of one of the Cards to measure 3-3/8" x 4-1/2".


I trimmed out a piece of the Pre-Printed Card to measure 1" x 2" and adhered it to the back of the top of the note card for a Pull with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.  

I then fussy cut out one of the Pineapples and adhered that to the pull with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I hadn't decided who the recipient will be for my Pocket Card and Envelope yet so I didn't embellish the Note Card.  I'm thinking that I will fussy cut out some of the fruit and adhere them along the edges or top and bottom of the Note Card.

 
Using the One in a Melon Stamp Set, I stamped my Watermelon and Rind onto one of the Circle Tags in the kit.  I cut the tag in half and adhered some Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of it.

Using SU's It's a Sara Thing April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit Stamp Set, I stamped the YOU, the ARE and the SO (I masked of the MUCH from the SO MUCH Stamp) onto one of the Pre-Water Colored Tags.

 
Using the Melon Mambo Baker's Twine in the Kit, I tied a bow and adhered it to the bottom of the Watermelon with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and then adhered the Watermelon to the Pre-Water Colored Tag.

Using one of the Lemon Lime Twist Clothespins in the Kit, I clipped the Tag to my Pocket Envelope.

 
I LOVE Paper Pumpkin Kits.  They are so fun to put together and I LOVE the challenge of creating Alternate Cards and Projects.  It's such a great get-a-way!

That's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!
