Hugs from Shelli

Hugs from Shelli is the upcoming Paper Pumpkin kit. Now and until May 10, you can subscribe to a kit that’s designed by Stampin’ Up! co-founder Shelli Gardner and we have a sneak peek at the Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin kit. Woo hoo!!

While I was OnStage earlier this month, elements and inspiration from the kit were shard and we even recieved products to complete a make and take. 

May 2019 Paper Pumpkin

The Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin Kit combines a little bit of Shelli’s personality with her distressed, artistic style. You have to be subscribed, though, to purchase the kit. Here’s a look at one of cards from the kit (this was our make and take from the OnStage event.

Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin

In this promotional video for the upcoming Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin kit, Shelli walks through her inspiration for the kit (you are going to LOVE) and shares a little bit more about what you’ll find inside your Paper Pumpkin box in May.

Here a little bit more about this kit. The kit makes 12 cards 3 each of 4 designs with 12 coordinated envelopes. It includes a sweet stamp set and a Stampin’ Spot. The kit showcases a variety of gorgeous colors – Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla. 

I don’t want you to miss out on this amazing, new kit. I’m guessing this one will sell out fast. Th earlier you are subscribed, the greater the chance you will receive one. 


Thanks for stopping by today!

Farewell!! Retirement List!!

Every year we have a farewell to these products on the retirement list of items that won’t be in the next catalog. Take a look at each of these papers, dies, stamp sets and more and see if any of them really need a home in your craft closet or area. 

Retirement List 2019

Here are both the lists by page number, which will allow you to flip through the catalog in one easy turn of the pages. I use a sharpie and highlighter to make a little dot on my books, or could put an  X by the product.

Farewell!! Retirement List Hostess Code:  Get a  special retirement sampler pack or retried goodies (papers, die cuts, ribbons, embellishments) free with your order when you the code RNRPQYTD  at Your order needs to be at least $30 before shipping and tax in order to qualify for the special retirement sampler goodies. 

BIG THING TO KNOW: wood mounts and the old not terribly sticky ” clear mounts are going away. 

There are a LOT of dies and embossing folder on this list. Due to a change in manufacturing partnerships, it’s a little bigger turnover than usual. Any dies or folder not listed as retiring will be in the next catalog. 

All of the In Color 2017-2019 products are leaving, including anything with colors Tranquil Tide, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Fresh Fig. Pick up some backup refills and cardstock so you can keep enjoying this collection!

Stamps will remain available all the way until the final week of May because we manufacture those ourselves. However, we don’t make own paper, cardstock, embellishments or dies, so when those things are sold out, they are totally gone for good. So if you need to spread out your wish list into a couple of orders, get the “consumable” things first and leave the stamps for last. 

Don’t forget to the code and get your special retirement sampler if the order is at $30! 

If you have any questions, fee free to email at [email protected]

Have lots of fun browsing the list and seeing what’s left of your wishlist that you still wanted to get. I’m excited for the new catalog, so that helps a lot with favorites from the annual and occasions catalog. Some have earned a lifelong space on my stamp shelf. 

I’ll be posting a “favorites” retirement list shortly, along with my personal recommendations for other retiring products that deserve one last look!
