Spreading Kindness with Paper Pumpkin

Hey everyone!  If you have seen the May’s Paper Pumpkin kit called Hugs from Shelli, then you know how gorgeous it is!  Well, Stampin’ Up is giving us a sneak peek for June’s Paper Pumpkin kit!  This kit is special because it promotes random acts of kindness!

The term random act of kindness is generally attributed to Anne Herbert who wrote, “Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty” on a restaurant place mat in 1982 and later published a book in 1993 with true stories of how random acts of kindness helped others.  While people generally use the term to refer to acts performed for strangers, random acts of kindness can also be shared with friends and family.  

This kit provides you with 16 fun-sized, beach-themed cards and envelopes, with an exclusive carrying case – so you will always have your cards on hand to spread lots of sunshine!  Paper Pumpkin makes it easy to brighten someone’s day with a simple note that says “Just wanted to say, thanks for being such a great friend” or “thinking of you” or “thank you for always being there”. 

Here are a few ideas for sharing your random acts of kindness note cards:

  1. Leave a note in a library book or on someone’s car wishing them a great day.
  2. Tuck a love note in the lunch box or briefcase of a family member.
  3. At your favorite restaurant, leave a nice tip with a note for your server.
  4. Hand out notes to people you see every day — like your office security guard, the person at the front desk and the janitor — thank them for sharing a smile with you every day!
  5. Write a note to your spouse mentioning one or two things that you love about them.
  6. Leave a box of goodies with a note in your mailbox for your mail carrier or on your front porch for the UPS man.

You will have so much fun with this kit.  It comes with an exclusive stamp set and ink spot that can be reused for creating more random acts of kindness notes.  And, it features a winning color combination of Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake and Old Olive for lots of summertime fun.

  • New subscribers must have an active subscription by June 10, 2019 in order to receive the June kit.
  • Remember supplies may be limited toward the end of the subscription period.

You can sign up right here!!!

Until next time, sending you crafting hugs and inspiration wishes!

Sneak Peek: Bird Ballad Product Suite

bird ballad onstage

One of the most wonderful things about spring is hearing the birds singing again!  After this long wet winter, I am really enjoying the constant activity at my bird feeders and happy songs sung all day long.  

Everyone knows that I love birds.  So, it should not be a surprise that I went crazy over the Bird Ballad Product Suite — with its beautiful designer series paper, new cling stamp set, Stitched Nested Labels dies, a beautiful card tin with laser-cut cards, a roll of scalloped lace ribbon and some delicate bronze trinkets (key, bow, leaf and flower).  And, there is a new organdy ribbon in Petal Pink that coordinates perfectly.

And, this designer series paper is just beautiful — it was first created in black and white and then colored with Stampin’ Up Blends in the colors of:  Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede.  The imagery and the coloring are just beautiful.

Hugs from Shelli

04-10-19_header_shelli_pp banner

You are in for a treat with May’s Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Shelli Gardner, Stampin’ Up!’s board chair and cofounder, designed this very special Paper Pumpkin kit just for you! It’s exclusive, collectible, and one of a kind. Die-hard Paper Pumpkin and Stampin’ Up! fans won’t want to miss this special edition.

I got a sneak peek at OnStage Charlotte.  And guess what, this paper pumpkin kit complements a new Bird Blooms product suite in the new Annual Catalog coming in June!  So you will have lots of opportunities to enjoy paper crafting with this kit.

Isn’t this an adorable card?  It is actually a note card size, but I matted it with Fresh Fig and created a full sized card.  And look how I re-purposed the pre-printed envelope — double matting with Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede, and I used first and second generation stamping on the card blank for added interest.

Shellis PP envelope

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 what else comes in the box????  Well, you’ll have to wait and see.  The box itself is something that you’ll want to keep!

And guess what, for this kit only, there will be an option to order it online by May 10 since it is a special edition.  That’s right so subscribers and non-subscribers will have the ability to get this kit. 

Here is some exciting news, more Paper Pumpkin kits, like Hugs from Shelli, will be coordinating more with Stampin’ Up! catalog products in the future.  This will provide you with more opportunities to enjoy paper crafting!!
