You Are Amazing

So is this months kit. I say this every month, but this is my absolute FAVORITE kit kit to date. I have no idea how Stampin’ Up! is going to top this one. I adore this stamp set and all the kit contents. If you are not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, click my link toward the bottom of the page to subscribe.

This card uses a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 Old Olive Card Base. A 4 X 2 3/4 Crumb Cake layer and a 3 1/2 X 2 1/4 Coastal Cabana layer. I used the double palm tree die cut and added a single palm tree die cut. I stamped the coral in Old Olive down the side of the card.

I added one of the sparkly sand dollars behind the banner. This is one of the simpler cards I made with the June Kit.

All About Paper Pumpkin

Hello my crafty friends! I am a little late with my post today. This Friday is my Paper Pumpkin Live event on Facebook, so this week on my blog is going to be all about Paper pumpkin! I am going to showcase all of my alternate projects…with the exception of 1 or 2 special ones that I am saving for Fridays Live event. Below is my card for today, but first I want to tell you a llittle bit about Paper Pumpkin just in case you are reading this and have no idea what I am talking about.

What exactly is Paper Pumpkin?

It’s a fabulous, fun papercrafting product in “kit form” (pre-cut, pre-scored, ready to assemble) wrapped up in pretty, soft blue tissue paper in a bright, red box that gets delivered right to your mailbox each month. And each kit includes a stamp set and ink that you can use again and again even after you’ve created everything within the kit!

How do I order Paper Pumpkin you ask…

Subscriptions start at just $22 per month (shipping included). Become a monthly subscriber today (“auto pay” from your credit card month to month) OR try it out by purchasing and redeeming prepaid kits. When you pre-pay, the kits still get delivered to your mailbox (once a month for the number of months you paid), but there are no further charges.

Regular Subscriptions…Click here to get started. Set up a Paper Pumpkin account, enter your payment and delivery information, and wait for your kits to begin arriving. Payments will be automatically processed shortly after the 10th of each month. Kits arrive on or around the 16th. You can cancel at any time.

Prepaid Subscriptions…You can pre-pay for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months by purchasing them on a regular order (online, through a party, directly with the demonstrator…). Click here to view and purchase a prepaid subscription online. Then set up a Paper Pumpkin account, enter your prepaid code and delivery information, and wait for your kits to begin arriving. Kits arrive on or around the 16th. If you find you enjoy the kits, you can always add your payment information and when the pre-paid subscription runs out, your account will convert to a regular subscription. If you do not want to continue receiving kits, simply do not enter you credit card info into your account.

Okay, okay…now onto the project for the week, my first alternate project.

Whenever I create my alternate projects, I try and use minimal extra products. This way I can really demonstrate the versatility of the kit contents. I used the Starfish stamp and Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Coastal Cabana Ink to stamp some starfish and then I fussy cut them out.

For this card, I cut one of the kit card bases in half. This measures 3 1/2 X 2 1/4. I cut a piece of Crumb Cake to measure 4 X 2 3/4 and stamped the sand dollar image from the stamp set onto it in Gray Granite ink. I layered both of these pieces onto a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 Coastal Cabana Card Base.

I added a twine bow and some vellum coral to the card to finish it off.

Butterfly Gala Notecard Set and Tutorial

Hello crafty friends! I hope you were able to join my online card class last night. If not, no worries. I am sharing the recorded version here. I am also going to include written instructions for the box and notecard set.

To make the adorable box, you are going to start with a piece of card stock that measures 9 1/2″ X 3 1/2″. Score on the long side at 3 3/4″, 4 1/2″, 8 1/4″, and 9″. Turn and score on the short side at 3/4″. Assemble this to be your box.

Take a second piece of card stock measuring 10″ X 3 3/4 “. Score this on the long side at 5 1/4″ and 6”. This is going to be the cover for your box.

This first card uses a piece of Balmy Blue that measures 4 3/4″ X 3 1/4″. I stamped my butterfly halves onto a Stitched Shape Oval and added a banned with my greeting. I topped this off with some pearls.

This card uses a piece of Grapefruit Grove that measures 4 3/4″ X 2 1/2″. I added a piece of Basic Gray that was punched with the Starburst punch, and a 1 3/4″ Circle. I also stamped and punched the Monarch Butterfly.

This card has a piece of Highland Heather measuring 4 3/4″ X 3 1/4″. I stamped my butterfly in Gorgeous Grape and punched it out. I stamped my sentiment on a Stitched Shape Oval.

This card uses a piece of Grapefruit Grove measuring 5″ X 3 1/2″. I cut it on a diagonal to put on the card.

This last card uses a piece of Balmy Blue that measures 4 3/4″ X 3 1/4″ and a piece of Whisper White that measures 4 1/4″ X 2 3/4″.

Here is the video from my Online Card CLass that shows in detail how to create this project!

Product List

DIY Twine Storage

Hello everyone! Today I have a project for you that is meant for storing your Bakers Twine. You could probably use it to store other things as well, but I put my twine in it. The drawer will hold 2 spools of regular twine or one spool of the Nature’s twine or Metallic thread. Check out my storage boxes, and keep reading for the measurements. I started making one, and couldn’t stop…I ended up making 4.

To make the box, cut a piece of cardstock to measure 7 7/8″ X 7 3/8″. Score on the short side at 1 5/8″ on both sides. On the long side, score at 3 1/8″ on both sides. Snip, fold, and assemble your box.

The DSP measurements for the box are 3 7/8″ X 2 7/8″ for the top and 2 7/8″ X 1 3/8″ for the sides.

To make the drawers, cut a piece of cardstock to measure 6″ X 5″ and score at 1 1/2″ on all 4 sides. Snip, fold, and assemble your drawers. The little DSP piece for the front of the drawer measures 1 3/4″ X 1 1/4″.

I added a hole to the center of the front of the drawers and fed a piece of ribbon through to pull them open. I also used a 1/2″ circle punch to punch half a circle in a couple of the drawers.

~ It’s Your Day ~ Best Catch

Hello Crafty friends! Today is the first day you can order products from the NEW annual catalog!! I am so excited about all of the amazing new items and I cannot wait to share them with you. I am also going to be sharing some old items that are still available in this NEW catalog as well. Below is my project for today! Its simple Whisper White and Soft Suede cardstock and Soft Suede ink. I used a couple circle punches as well.

It looks, from this angle, like he is on the inside of my card, peeking through the circle. However, I stamped the fisherman on a whisper white circle.

This card was inspired by a couple I saw online. I altered mine just a little from the ones I CASE’d.

May 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit Hugs From Shelli

Hello crafty friends! This week is all about Paper Pumpkin and the benefits of having a subscription as well as the different things I offer to my subscribers. But let’s start by taking a look at this months projects using the kit contents as they are intended. This months kit makes 12 cards, 3 each of 4 designs. Plus there are some leftovers that you will have to use for other projects when you are done..

This first one seems so whimsical and vintage to me. The floral background and the little bird at the top of the tag are so beautiful.

This one has a cute little flower and twine at the bottom of the tag which gives this card a nice finishing touch.

The bird nest does it for me on this one. How amazing is that image? This card is just darling.

This last one is my favorite. I love EVERYTHING about it. The text, the ink splots, and the birds. The feather just adds a nice finish to the whole thing.

Keep your eyes out starting tomorrow for my alternative projects, and my live Paper Pumpkin event on Friday night.
