Forever Friends Kit Alternate Cards

Forever Friends Kit – Alternate Cards

The Forever Friends kit is part of the Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection and is on sale this month – August 2023.  Below I’m going to share some cards that I made using the stamp set and additional supplies from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

After you complete the cards in the kit you still have the stamp set left – and the ink spot.  I decided to make some alternate cards using the Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper and other supplies from the annual catalog.  I copied one card design from the kit and then create two more. In the video I’ll share with you how I split the Bordered Ribbon into 3 sections – and then used one on each card.

This was originally my Facebook Live from 7/17/2023 on my At Monika’s Place page. I’ve also uploaded it to YouTube for you to view there – see the link below.

Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop Kisses & Hugs

Hello!  It’s time for our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  A blog hop filled with alternate ideas using contents from the monthly kit. This month our kit is the Kisses & Hugs kit from January 2022.  A group of us get together to create alternate ideas throughout the year and bring them to you in a blog hop. 

The Kisses & Hugs kit is not bound to just Valentine’s Day, it works for all love occasions year-round like anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, or those “just because” days.  You’ll see below that I used it for a very special occasion that just happened in our family.

Love You Scrapbook Page

When I saw this month’s kit I knew I wanted to make a scrapbook page.  When all my boys were home for the holidays I had some family photos made.  And we had Ryan and his girlfriend, Emily, and their two dogs take some photos as well.  I was secretly thinking they were practice engagement photos.  And then on New Year’s Eve at midnight Ryan did propose!  So once I had my kit I knew I could use one of the photos and make a scrapbook layout.  The photo I used is one of my favorites of them. 

Supply List

The additional supplies that I added to complete this project were:

  • Card stock – Gray Granite Card stock, Neutrals 12×12 Card stock Pack
  • Simply Marbelous Designer Series Paper – free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration
  • Kisses & Hugs Add-on

A few notes about my page.

  • Cut apart one of the cards so that I could use the three individual hearts on my page.
  • Use a piece of the gray Simply Marbelous Designer Series paper and cut it in half.  Cover the seam in the center with the large heart.
  • Stamp “love you” multiple times on the vellum heart
  • Stamp “love you” on the heart tag from the Add-on Kit and tie a piece of the gold twine through the hole.

The Kisses & Hugs Kit was designed as a card kit but you can also buy the Kisses & Hugs Add-on which are treat boxes.  I used the heart tag and the gold twine from the add-on as part of my scrapbook page.  And plan to use the boxes for some treats this month.  This is what the add on looks like.  I found some Strawberries & Cream Chocolate Truffles which should fit nicely inside these little treat boxes. You can still order the Kisses & Hugs Add-on – just add it to any of your regular Stampin’ Up! product orders

I hope you liked this alternate idea for the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit. Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.
