March 2018 is Paper Pumpkin’s 5th anniversary, and along with celebrating five amazing years of creating and sharing together,  they also found a way to say thank you to their friends with an amazing March kit which includes a fantastic, FREE gift—a pack of beautiful wood embellishments.
Because this is such a special anniversary for Paper Pumpkin, a lot of love went into creating this kit, and they hope you’re as crazy about it as they are. Its vintage floral design with seed packet envelopes is a first for Stampin’ Up! and they have to say—the Paper Pumpkin team just about fell out of their chairs when they first saw it. It’s uniquely beautiful, collectible, and almost sure to go down in Paper Pumpkin history as an all-time customer favorite!

While I was watching the video and going through my kit I fell in love with all of the super cute materials; however, I was also inspired with some great alternative projects. Below is my first alternative using the stamp set.
