Stampin' Up Adoring Arrows January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Swirly Bird, Sweet & Sassy, Sprinkles, Cupcakes & Carousels

Well, it continues to be dark and dreary weatherwise and it's supposed to be that way all week long.  And, it's supposed to turn colder by the weekend.  I can handle these 40 - 50 degree days in January in Michigan.  Our snow is almost gone except where my Hubby plowed up the banks.

My share for today is Stampin' Up's Adoring Arrows January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Let's take a look:

These adorable little Valentine's bags are so cute and were so fun to put together.  My Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, and I put these together yesterday.  Kadie is in Arizona and we sent pictures and e-mails back and forth showing our creations and chatting.  It was so much fun!  Even though we are long distance, we can still craft together.  You can click on the link below to go to Kadie's blog:

Here is the first Valentine's Bag that I put together per the instructions of the kit.  The kit included Calypso Coral Ink and the coordinating colors are Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder.

Pictured above is the side of the Bag.  I put 2 Ghirardelli chocolate candies in each of the Bags for the adults and 2 Gummy Valentines Hearts that I got at a dollar store for the Kids.

And then I went out-of-the-box and made up my own using the following Stampin' Up product from my own stash:  Swirly Bird Thinlits Dies, Sweet & Sassy Hearts Framelits Dies, Gold Foil Paper, Gold Binder Clip, Gold Sequin Trim, Sprinkles Embellishments and the Calypso Coral Ribbon from SU's Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.

Below are pictures of each individual Valentine's Bag that I made:

For this one, I used a negative die cut from Swirly Bird Thinlits Dies, Sprinkles Embellishments and Gold Sequin Trim.

For this one, I used a die cut from Swirly Bird Thinlits Dies for a backdrop and Calypso Coral Ribbon from Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.

For this one I used the Positive Calypso Coral and Negative Gold Foil Die Cuts from Swirly Bird Thinlits Dies.  

I also punched a small Heart from the leftover Foil in the Kit using SU's Confetti Hearts Border Punch.  

And, I trimmed out a small Banner from one of the Bags.

For this one, I used a Gold Foil Die Cut from Swirly Bird behind the stamped Heart and tied the top closed with the Calypso Coral Ribbon in the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.

For this one, I used the Negative Die Cut from Swirly Bird Thinlits Dies behind a Calypso Coral Cardstock Die Cut Heart die cut using Sweet & Sassy Heart Framelits Dies.

Using the Calypso Coral Ribbon, I tied it in a Bow and adhered it to one of SU's Gold Binder Clips with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I punched some tiny Hearts from one of the Bags using SU's Confetti Hearts Border Punch and adhered them to my Vellum Banner.

I will share some Alternate Cards that I designed with the Adoring Arrows Paper Pumpkin Kit throughout the week.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog and have a great weekend!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
