September 2023 - Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop

Welcome to our September 2023 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop.  We are sharing alternative designs for the "Love & Gratitude" kit.   I love this kit that includes product to make gift boxes and note cards.  

Check out what you can make with the kit!  So pretty.

In this blog, we share alternative projects using the kit.  I love the fact that we can make other things with the components of the kit.
