My Paper Pumpkin---Patti Leeke's informal get-together with friends

Patti Leeke has been a steady contributor to this blog hop site over the months.  It's a pleasure to share her projects since Patti doesn't have a blog of her own.  A good friend and a staunch supporter of this blog hop, Patti manages to join the team by showing us some fun and exciting projects that she and her core group of friends and customers have done in the past month.

Patti likes to keep it informal.  For her a good get-together is filled with friends, fun and great laughs.  Her group has been getting together for a "My Paper Pumpkin Night".  They wait to get together before opening their Red Boxes and then have a good time assembling them.  But simple assembly is not all there is for Patti and her friends.  In her own words:

"This is what we did today.  We really had a fun day.  Good friends, good fun, great laughs, super projects.  The box comes right to your door and includes everything you need except adhesive.  A group of us that have signed up are going to meet once a month to put them together.  Sharing ideas among some very talented ladies.  We all have different tastes.  We all waited to get together to open our Red Boxes.  The kist have really improved, too.  All the stamp sets are unique to My Paper Pumpkin and can't be bought elsewhere.  There is even a special being offered by Stampin' Up! for two months of the My Paper Pumpkin at half price---but you have to sign up before September 10th."   


This picture shows Patti's July My Paper Pumpkin.  She punched out some small stars with soft sky cardstock and added rhinestones.  

Isn't that little box with the tag darling?

For the flag card, Patti used the World of Art stamp set, Champagne Glimmer paper, Hello Honey, Real Red and Night of Navy inks.  Everyone loved making that one.  The pinwheel is from the June My Paper Pumpkin kit.  That lovely masculine card beside the pinwheel uses the Open Sea stamp set, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Marina Mist cardstocks, the Chevron embossing folder and the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  The sentiment looks great cut out with the Bitty Banners framelits, doesn't it?
