May 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit Hugs from Shelli

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the projects from the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit and give you a little sneak peek of the June 2019 Kit.  The May create was inspired and co designed by Stampin' Up!'s Co-Founder Shelli Gardner.  Shelli has a very classic style to her projects and she loves heat embossing so I was surprised that this kit didn't have a little embossing with it.  But everything else was so Shelli.  This was a super fun kit and was the first kit to be offered in the international market.  Which was very special for everyone.  I shared a few alternative projects for this kit yesterday for the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  I will link that post here.  The blog hop yesterday was so fun and all the projects were wonderful you will differently want to check them out.  Here's a look at the cards from this month's kit as intended.

The May Kit focused on four note cards each with a different design.  You made three of each design.  I used some of mine to create my alternative cards in yesterday's post.  The May kit also came in a special box, which is so pretty.  I can also tell you that the kit coordinates with the Bird Ballard Suite in the upcoming Catalog.  Paper Pumpkin is such a great deal, you get everything in the box that you need for each project.  All the instructions on printed in the flyer on the inside.  You also get a exclusive stamp set, ink spot, and all the components for the cards.  Here's a look at what came in this month's kit.
That's a lot of product for such a small price point.  Starting in June the Price for a monthly kit will be $22.00 per kit with the monthly subscription.  You can also purchase Paper Pumpkin as a gift for someone with one of the Prepaid Subscriptions.  The Prepaid Subscriptions are as followed; 1 month $21.00, 3 months $63.00, 6 months $114.00 (you save $1 per kit), and 12 months $220 (you buy 11 and get the 12th month free with this option) you do have to pay the shipping costs & taxes with the Prepaid Subscriptions up front , where with the monthly subscription you are only paying taxes.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Hugs From Shelli Kit

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a few alternative projects using the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit Hugs from Shelli.  I am super excited to play with this kit which was designed with Shelli Gardner Stampin' Up!'s Co-Fonder.  This was a super fun kit to play with and I may have been a little over zealous with my alternatives this month.  So let's jump into them right now.
 So for my projects this month I created not one card but five different designs and did two of each design plus created a large gift box that would hold all ten card, envelopes and with a little room for more.  This was super fun today. I kept my cards on the simple side.  I used five pieces of cardstock to create each card plus the note cards that came in this month's kit.  I did throw in a couple scraps of whisper white cardstock to finish off my sentiments.  Here's a look at my cards.

,For two of the card designs I had to cut the note cards in half to have enough to make all 10 cards.  So once I had these all made I needed someplace to put them so I created a large gift box that will hold all 10 cards plus envelopes for each.  This makes for a super quick and easy gift.  Here's my gift box.
I used a couple pieces of cardstock to make the box and a little designer series paper.  The designer Series paper you see comes from the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper Stack (new in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog).  From this month's kit I used some of the die cut elements and the Pretty Peacock Velvet ribbon.  This box is super easy to make as you will see in my video tutorial.

The Shelli Kit May 2019's Paper Pumpkin (OnStage Sneak Peek Week Day 2)

Welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a little sneak peek of the May Paper Pumpkin kit.  It is suitably named the Shelli Kit, because it was designed by Shelli Gardner Stampin' Up!'s co founder and board chair.  We got to get a little preview of this kit and got to create one of the cards that came in the kit this past weekend while at OnStage both Live and Local.

So this May, you’re in for a treat if you are a subscriber to Paper Pumpkin if not you can sign up here.   It's super exciting that Paper Pumpkin has teamed up with Shelli Gardner, Stampin’ Up!’s board chair and cofounder, to deliver you a very special Paper Pumpkin kit.  It’s exclusive, collectible, and one of a kind!  If you are a die-hard Paper Pumpkin or a Stampin’ Up! fan you'll not  want to miss this special edition.
The look and feel of this kit is all Shelli.  It’s elegant, feminine, and so full of springtime details that you’ll probably just want to take a walk, breathe in the fresh air, and then go home and stamp every card in the kit.  And the box it comes in?  I predict that you’ll be keeping it . . . like . . . forever. Wait and see.

Hugs from Shelli: 

If you are New to Paper Pumpkin: 

The “Shelli” kit is perfect for a new subscribers or stampers.  It will arrive in a one-of-a-kind box with a beautiful vintage design, and it provides a fun and easy papercrafting experience.  It will also help a new subscriber/stampers connect instantly to the Paper Pumpkin and Stampin’ Up! community because everyone will be talking about it. So if you would like to be a  new subscriber you won’t want to miss this especially fun kit because everyone will be getting one in May.
This kit is also perfect for Stampin’ Up! customers who are new to Paper Pumpkin.  Most of our regular customers know and love Shelli, so how could you resist not becoming a subscriber when knowing that the May kit was inspired by her?  If you are not a subscriber to Paper Pumpkin this is one of the most collectible kits ever.  So I am sure you would like to see a little sneak peek of the card that we made from this kit while at OnStage Local in Charlotte.  
This is a super cute card!  I love how the nest was preprinted on the note card.  This is always a great thing about Paper Pumpkin.  It makes crafting fun and easy.  Everything came in our little kit.  The little flowers are popped up using mini dimensionals.  All we had to do was stamp the sentiment and place everything.  The hardest thing to me was getting the cottonish ribbon to lay just right.  My hands were a little to big to do the finger trick where you wrap it around the fingers.  There wasn't enough with the three fingers but when I used 2 it was way to small to fit behind the sentiment.  The cruse of Fat Fingers.  I just kind of made loops and secured it with dimensionals.  
So the only way you are going to get this kit is by signing up for a subscription if you don't have one already.  Sign up before May 10th to secure your kit.  I predict that this kit will be a sale out.  It's super super cute and very pretty.  And, the best part it was super easy to put this card from the kit together; minus my fat finger incident with the ribbon.  I hope that you have enjoyed this little sneak peek.  Remember if you would like to become a subscriber I would love to have you.  You can click here to subscribe.
