Well this month my Paper Pumpkin kit arrived super early which was a surprise and so I got straight into it and decided to make the original cards as is, and then tonight I am going to make some alternate projects to show y’all!

I must admit I was not really looking forward to this kit as my family is not into sports at all – I tried to get my kids interested in a team sport when they were younger but alas to no avail as they refused LOL but that’s ok…in high school they have been a big part of the Marching Band and let me tell you, that is a SPORT people – good grief those kids work out on a concrete or asphalt band field for hours a day in the heat of the Texas summer!

AND I have a FREE Project Sheet showing you how to put these three cards together– because honestly I struggle with the small print on the instruction leaflet in the kits and figured that I am probably not alone in that!!  Look for this blue color text below to find instructions in a larger font!

Back to the scheduled programming…sooo these are the three cards that this kit – called BATTER UP! – makes:

Definitely perfect for upcoming Father’s Day in June as you can customize what stamps you use on all of them.

And I have to say it made me giggle when I opened the box lid to find three pieces of bubblegum in there too LOL!  Is this a baseball thing?!  Apologies but being an English gal not into sports, I don’t know about these things!

Here is the first card the kit makes – I love the boldness of this card background and can see so much potential for it in alternate projects…

Here’s a close up so you can see the dimension…pretty neat!

Here is the second card – I love the shirt stripes design on this one and the big fun die cut pieces…

But I noticed something – on the front of the instruction leaflet is the card as shown above – but inside in the detailed instructions is the version below!  Hmmm…so I decided to make both of them and I cannot decide which bat placement I prefer…

Here’s a closer look – loving all the layering on this one…

And here is the third card – I am liking the subtle wood effect background on this one and the pocket die cut piece and that big bold fun stamped image on it!

And a side peek of this one…that is one big bow under there!

So what do you think?  I am very surprised by how much I actually like this kit and am really excited to make some alternatives using it.
