Paper Pumpkin Gurus: Sprinkled with Love Tutorials

Have you seen May's donut-themed Paper Pumpkin kit?  So yummy!  And so many wonderful alternative ideas. 

Looking at the blue round card base reminding me of a vinyl album.  And the envelope paper is perfect for the sleeve of the album. 

Using a heat gun, I disassembled the envelope and scored to create one 4-1/4" wide.  Then trimming the top to make it 4-1/4" square.

You could use the "you make me oh so very happy" sentiment to refer to the old rock song from Blood, Sweat & Tears (and I've had that song in my head for days).  I pulled out the clearance rack set Bombs Away Birthday for the classic rock sentiment.  I also used a stylus and Circles Collection Framelits to make score lines in the record.

Stamps: Bombs Away Birthday; Paper: Basic Black, Gold Foil Sheets, Newsprint DSP, Falling in Love DSP; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: May 2017 Sprinkled with Love Paper Pumpkin Kit, Stapler, Stylus, 1" Circle Punch, Circle Scissors Plus, Circles Collection Framelits, Big Shot, Sewing Machine, Thread.
