Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin was certainly a hit this month! What a perfect July kit! It was super fun to create the baskets! And of course I had to create some alternative ideas to inspire you. If you love summer, picnics and fruit – you are going to love these ideas!
First off, I LOVED the basket! I plan on making them up and blessing neighbors and friends with a little treat. Now if you look at my basket – it seems just a bit empty. It once was filled with candy treats. The candy treats were saved from the Alaska Cruise – they have a hospitality suite for us (called Base Camp) and there was tons of various candy treats everywhere!
Sadly, this picture shows all that is left of the candy treats. Sad I know but, my waistline will appreciate it! Look closely at the basket – it has built in weave texture! So adorable! Don’t you wish you were one of my neighbors who might find this basket on their doorstep?
Check out this alternative project. The tissue paper in the kit came in Blueberry Bushel, Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade. For this card I added a piece of the tissue paper to my cardbase. Adorable!
