Today I am going to share some So Cool Paper Pumpkin Alternatives. But first, did you know that Paper Pumpkin kits coordinate beautifully with products in our annual catalogs? The So Cool April 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit is designed to coordinate with the Ice Cream Corner Suite in the January – June 2021 catalog.

  • Use Stampin’ Blends to cover white edges.
  • Stamp sentiments on patterned paper for extra depth in design.
