Germaine’s Paper Pumpkin Class

Am I happy to be back in freezing NY… that would be a no! LOL! I’m glad to get to see my peeps again but I’m really missing the Florida sunshine and much warmer temps! I had a nice flight home last night, the plane actually left 10 minutes early and it didn’t take forever to get my luggage. Andrew picked me up and came in for a little while once we got back to my house. I will miss all of my friends, especially Maggie, Nicole and Brian, but I’ll see them again soon. As you can see I’m a little late today, I think I went to bed at 2:00am. I will also get all caught up on all of my comments today, yesterday I got caught up on my emails at the airport and on the plane, all 620 of them!! I needed a little vacation from it for a while!

Today I’m sharing the cards that were made at my friend Germaine’s Paper Pumpkin class. She was nice enough to let me play along with them last Monday and I had so much fun! I made three cards, Germaine made one and her friend Susan made four cards and the treat bags. So enjoy the pictures of the cards, they use supplies from the kit and some other punches, stamps and card stock. I hope that they give you lots of ideas as to what else you can do with the amazing little Paper Pumpkin kits! Enjoy!

Here are the ladies from left to right starting in the front, Dawn Walker-Randall, Dale Strileckis, Germaine Meilach, Barbara Jones, Mary Lou Kopinj

  1. Really cute cards that show the versatility of the Paper Pumpkin kits! I’m glad you made it home safely, can’t wait to hear more of your stories from Leadership. Stay warm!

    1. Thank you Melanie! I had so much fun at the class and the ladies were all lovely! My flight home was actually quite pleasant! 🙂

  2. Hello from snowy Wisconsin Justin! Glad you made it home safe and sound! I love all these cards from Germaine’s workshop! Such clever people! Paper Pumpkin has really gotten better and better! Yikes on the emails! It’s snowing sideways here right now. I think we are about to get 6 or 8 inches of snow and it’s gonna be that way all day. Good day to stay indoors! Have a restful day today! Welcome home!

    1. Hi Karen!
      It will be snowy NY tonight! The flight was nice and I was happy to see Andrew! The workshop was great fun! I’m almost all caught up! YAY! Glad to be home, just wish it was warmer! 🙂

    1. It was so nice to meet you too Kathy! Thank you! I’m happy that you enjoy the blog, love the connection! 🙂

  3. Hi Justin:

    Thank you for sharing the cards from these obviously very talented ladies. AND, of course, it’s always fun to get together with others when stamping. I think when a group stamps together they inspire each other while having a great time.

    I am glad that you are safely home. Boy, that week sure went by quickly for me and I wasn’t even on vacation so it must have blown by for you. It looks like you made the most of every day you were in Florida and hopefully you captured lots of those moments on camera. It’s always such fun to look back and remember.
    Use today to relax and prepare for the old “grind” tomorrow. What goodies did SU surprise you with?

    Have yourself a Superb Sunday. Love and hugs! 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Yes, they were a lot of fun! I agree, and I get the Paper Pumpkin Kits every month, maybe I will actually do something with them now! LOL!
      The week definitely did fly by but it was so great! I have loads of pictures! Will share them this week! I had too much catch up to do today, laundry and email and blog comments! But I’m all caught up! Yay!
      We got a few stamp sets and DSP and other fun things! Always a good time! Love and hugs to you my friend! 🙂

  4. Great cards! I like the corners Susan Superak made on her card with the twine frame. I don’t understand why I haven’t thought of doing that…. Welcome home. We would love to have some of your snow. Our snow fall is really low so far and our temps are a whole 15 degrees above average for our area! We really need to snow for our forest!

    1. Thank you Cindy! I love to see other peoples ideas! It’s good to be home, just needs to be warmer! You can have all of our now, I’ll see if I can send it to you! 🙂

  5. OH… Love these cards, all of them. I used my kit for gift bags for my nurses, love how they turned out but now I want to have the goodies to make cards. LOL I’m never satisfied when it comes to craft goodies.

    Glad you got home safe, I was up in Minnesota for the weekend. My daughter skated at Midwestern Sectionals, her team came in second, awesome way to finish a great iceskating year. Then we had to come home, hit snow in Wisconsin Dells and its been snowing ever since. We are expecting 12-18 inches here, I’m glad February is a short month, weather wise I think is going to be a long one. Take care

    1. Thank you Linda! I don’t think that any of us are ever satisfied with our craft goodies! I know that I’m not!
      Yes, it’s good to be home! WOW! good for your daughter and her team! I love to watch ice skating! Glad that you got home safe! 🙂

  6. Justin, Glad your home safe and sound! All the cards are lovely! I haven’t opened my Paper Pumpkin yet so I can use some of the ideas. Have a relaxing Sunday.

  7. Great cards and wonderful inspiration. I have opened my box and used one of the stamps but this will be such great inspiration to use the PP in different ways. Glad your flight was quick and easy and that your good friend was there to take you back home. What would be do without friends! Hope you have a super week and that the transition to the new job goes super well. 🙂

    1. Thank you very much Louise! I had fun at the Paper Pumpkin class! I was quite happy to see Andrew and that the flight was good too! I am so blessed to have the people in my life that I do! 🙂
