Beautiful May Flowers

Beautiful May flowers are coming your way in next month’s Paper Pumpkin.  The Shelli Kit, featuring Hugs from Shelli, is a very special kit.  Stampin’ Up! cofounder  and board chair, Shelli Gardner has teamed with the Paper Pumpkin team to design this one-of-a-kind kit herself.  It contains beautiful soft colors (including one of the new In-Colors).   Additionally, the kit includes an exclusive photopolymer stamp set, paper and crafting materials to create 12 mailable cards.  Stampin’ Up! has put together this video below to give you a special sneak peek. 

Did you enjoy the sneak peek and the special look at one of the cards you can make with the kit?  As always, the Paper Pumpkin monthly kit has the inspiration you need to create beautifully crafted projects.  And the box?  Isn’t it beautiful.  How could you not want to receive the kit!  It doesn’t look like we will be disappointed with the May kit.

Simple Easter Treat Holder

Since Easter is quickly approaching, I want to share a simple Easter Treat Holder that you can make last minute.  This is the final project from this month’s class.  Don’t you think it’s perfect to highlight the bunny’s face on the Hershey’s Easter Candy?  What’s great about the project is you can easily alter it to hold any small, flat candy bar.   

Simple Easy Treat Holder

The treat holders feature the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  Use the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack to embellish with flowers.  Below are details on recreating the project.

Project Materials:
  • Granny Apple Green Cardstock: 9-1/2″ x 2″ score at 4-1/2″ & 5″ and one piece 3-1/2″ x 1″ score at 1/4″ on each side then cut in half at 1-3/4″ so you will have 2 pieces 1-3/4″ x 1″ 
  • Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper: 1-7/8″ x 4-3/8″ 
  • Cardstock to match Designer Series Paper: 2″ x 3″ 
  • Scraps of Whisper White for sentiment and desired colors to punch small flower embellishments.  The colors used above are Berry Burst, Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight & Grapefruit Grove.
  • Detailed Trio Punch
  • Best Bunny Photopolymer Stamp Set for Surprise! sentiment

Time to Say Good Bye

Stampin’ Up! released the retiring list today and it’s time to say Good Bye to retiring favorites.  To see the list of items, click here.  Be sure to act quickly as items are available while supplies last.  Items such as the retiring In-Colors and ink refills are usually the first items that sell out.  It’s a great time to order retiring embellishments too.  A long time favorite stamp set is also retiring –  Lovely As A Tree.  If you don’t have this classic stamp set, you’ll want to be sure to add it to your collection.  

But as all things come to an end, new will be coming our way on June 4th.  While at conference this weekend, I received the catalog early and WOW – love the new products.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll share some of the products that demonstrators attending were able to order early.  Below is the catalog…notice all the pages that I have flagged?! Told you I love the new products and look forward to the date that I can order more items from the catalog.   

Be sure to follow me on Facebook and watch my Facebook Live this week.  I will be demonstrating a quick and easy Easter Treat project.  

Thanks for stopping by today!
