Had a lot of fun with the Playful Pets suite and Mini Paper Pumpkin Box.
I love, love, love all of the elements in Stampin’ Up!’s Playful Pets Suite. We didn’t have a dog or cat growing up. (We kept rabbits as pets!) But as soon as my sisters and I moved out of the house, my parents purchased a dog, a Brittany Spaniel named Dirk. Then, slowly, my sisters and I became dog owners.
We had a Basset Hound called Max, and my sister, Kara, owns a Boston Terrior named Reggie. My son’s girlfriend has Stan, a Yorkie. So, the dog-themed stamp set (Pampered Pets), the coordinating dies (Pets Dies), and the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper spoke to me.

And, what fun to combine it with Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes and the Playful Alphabet to create fun treat packing. I started with Stan, the Yorkie. The Designer Series Paper includes an image of a Yorkie. I cut that out with the small oval from the Stitched Shapes and layered it with selections from the layered ovals. So cute!
Here’s a picture of Stan!
I didn’t want Reggie to feel left out. So I used the Playful Alphabet to die cut the letters to spell “woof.” Super cute, isn’t it? I’ve put little dog treats and poop bags inside.
Now, here’s a picture of Reggie when he was a puppy. Who can resist that cute little face?
I appreciate being able to create fun and whimsical cards and treats for friends and family. These Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes are perfect for lots of ideas. Each package contains 10 boxes for $7.50. See this post for the box of sunshine I recently created. (Be sure to check it out. There’s also a quick Facebook Live replay.)
