May 2018 – Paper Pumpkin ~ Manly Moments

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and the rumor is—shopping for dads is tough. How many pairs of socks or barbecue spatulas can you buy? Well, we’ve got good news! Whether your favorite guys are sports fans or outdoorsmen or techie nerds, they’ll never tire of getting a handwritten “I love you” in big, swirly letters on their special day, especially inside a card made by you.
This months kit has you covered for man cards! Check it out. The design is bold and daring and the alternative cards you can make with this kit are limitless. Die cut stickers means you are going to love layering the trees, lake, and mountains. There is even plaid! GAH! Time to get to work on these rugged, manful cards.
Check out the video here and get a jump on Father’s Day by creating your cards today!

Check out the Stampin’ Up! blog for alternative items to do with this kit. Also, there is a huge forum on Pinterest for more ideas. That is one thing I love about Paper Pumpkin: the ideas are endless and the kit is just the jumping off point. Here are a few ideas from their Facebook page.
