This month’s kit is called Birthday Bundle!… it has enough materials to make four birthday bags and six cards, and it’s delivered right to your door… can’t beat that!
When I opened this month’s kit, I was glad to see all the fun colors. It’s always a surprise seeing what’s inside (which is part of the fun), now… these colors aren’t something that I would normally choose for my projects, but they are happy colors, and this kit is called Birthday Bundle! for a reason, so happy colors…Happy Birthday!
Birthday Bundle!… Alternate Design: My Paper Pumpkin May 2015
A lot of people use the entire kit as is for a party or event they might be having, but most of the time I don’t have a large event to prepare for, so I usually turn some of the contents into my own alternate designs, I call this one Birthday Balloon. I tried to use only what was in the kit, except I did add some rhinestones for a little sumthin’, sumthin’!
By using only what’s in the kit (well, mostly), I’m forced to go outside my comfort zone and think a little bit, and I don’t have any of my tried and true ideas to fall back on… so it makes for some interesting designs! Some of what happens with the “leftovers” works great, some not so much! No matter if I like them or not, I choose to share them, it may lead to a great idea for a project…you never know when or where inspiration may strike!
P.S. This one makes me happy! …hehe.
…inking outside the box!
