We Create Blog Hop - Relationship Celebrations

Welcome to the MAY 2021 "Relationship Celebrations" Blog Hop!!! We generally hop on the first day of every month, and this month the focus of our projects will be anything to do with relationships. I chose to feature our NEW No Matter the Weather Kit for this post. If you are a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber, this kit may look familiar to you if you took delivery of a kit in March 2020.
{scroll to the bottom of this post for ALL product purchase links}

The NEW Stampin' Up! Kits Collection No Matter the Weather Kit offers the same Stampin' Spot in Basic Gray ink, the same kit stamp set, and all the same kit consumables as its Paper Pumpkin namesake...however, you will not get the Bonus Free stamp set that subscribers received that month.

ALL of the new kits are all-inclusive kits, and have everything you'll need for assembly of the projects in the box (except scissors for cutting ribbon or twine). I do want to point out that there are TWO categories of kits currently listed in the NEW Stampin' Up! Kits Collection:
  Card Kits which include directions and supplies to make cards only, and 
Crafting Kits which include directions and supplies to make cards plus a project such as a box, or they could be wholly comprised of non-card projects such as treat packaging. The No Matter the Weather Kit is a Card Kit, so the instructions will only show you how to create 3 each of 3 card designs as shown above. Please note that ALL cards in all kits will also have included coordinating envelopes.

Pictured above are the contents of the No Matter the Weather Kit you can order now, anytime, as a retail product. Please note that there are some kits which include a stamp set and ink, such as this one, while other kits instead include all pre-preprinted sentiments from which you may choose. When a kit includes a stamp set, it will also include an exclusive Kit Clear Block which has the same surface dimensions as the retail Clear Block D, but which was produced at a different thickness so as not to add so much shipping weight to the kits. The ONLY thing you might need to grab from around the house to finish the cards in the No Matter the Weather Kit, is a pair of scissors. I prefer our Paper Snips.


The NEW Kits Collection kits also have all new instruction sheets which are included in hard copy with each kit, AND which may be downloaded as PDFs. The directions lay out everything very simply, and are full color! I will be demonstrating the assembly of the No Matter the Weather Kit on My Facebook Page LIVE shortly using these No Matter the Weather Kit PDF Instructions. Once that video is complete, I will upload it above, so you can walk through all the steps with me whenever you get your kit!

Stampin' Up! CEO Sara Douglass has created a very quick video showing how she likes to assemble this kit (this is the video embedded above, if you are receiving this blog post via email, you will want to click on the title of the blog post to view it in your browser in order to play the videos). There are also a couple more videos from Stampin' Up! that help you learn How to Stamp, and how to use the Adhesives & Embellishments that come in the kits. I will line these all up for you below. But if you want to get an extended version with all my tips and tricks during the assembly, explaining the advantages of different techniques or approaches, so you can avoid feeling like you might make a mistake...wait for me to post the livestream from My Facebook Page.

Browse our NEW Kits Collection today, and get your own "class" shipped to your door! Let me know in the comments what your favorite class is, so I can do my assembly walkthrough videos for the most popular kits first. HINT: Because this kit was previously delivered as a Paper Pumpkin subscription kit, you will find all sorts of alternate ideas online if you search the internet, or even just Pinterest, for "No Matter the Weather March 2020 Paper Pumpkin" which you can create if you are an intermediate or advanced stamper, with your own additional supplies!
