If you are a regular reader, you know that I LOVE Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Pumpkin monthly kits. Decembers kit was no exception. It was this fabulous 4×6 desk calendar. Which is great but what do you do with the cards when the month is done? You don’t want to throw them out! I love that they are 4×6 so they can easily be added to Project Life or include them on a layout!
For this layout I circled a day in January that indicated a huge sign of independence for our daughter, added a photo and then did some journaling about the emotions behind it. I love the simplicity of the layout! It really showcases the photo and the story.
Tip: to create the circle, I lightly traced a dinner plate on the cardstock. This allowed me to easily position the 1-1/2″ punched circles so that they lined up to create a nice shaped circle.
I love using Paper Pumpkin in my memory keeping. Many of the kits are themed for upcoming occasions/holidays which makes the stamps and accessories easy to incorporate into your layouts!
