ABOUT ALL THOSE PRETTY, PATTERNED PAPERS

 
Painted With Love 12x12 Specialty DSP - Occasions Catalog 2018

 Stampin' Up! always offers a variety of "Designer Series Papers" a.k.a. "DSP" for short. These are double-sided, with a different printed pattern design or each side, and usually the 12x12 packs have two sheets each of six 2-sided designs. Sometimes, "Specialty" DSP is available, and this type may be one-sided. Specialty DSPs may be textured, embossed, or have some other special feature that sets them apart from the regular DSP.  The Painted With Love Specialty DSP shown above has gold foil accents on one side of each design.
Sweet Soiree 12x12 Specialty DSP - Occasions Catalog 2018

Some DSP collections come in 6x6 pads or stacks of as many as 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.

 Always read the description in the catalog to be sure of the sheet size, and quantity of sheets and designs. 

BUT WHAT DO THE PAPERS LOOK LIKE?
When we look in the catalogs at pictures like those above we really can't tell what the full pattern looks like on the sheet. Go to the online store and find the DSP you want to see. Click on the item to see the details, and usually under the sampler image you can click to see more images, and better images of the patterns.
You can also go on a "treasure hunt" in the catalogs to look for samples using different papers. And, of course, there is our good friend Pinterest!

DON'T MISS OUT!
Both the Occasions 2018 and the SAB have new DSP assortments! We can predict that none of these new papers will be available when the catalogs expire. This will also be the case with most of the DSP in the Annual Catalog. 

Below are the patterns in "Painted With Love" Specialty DSP - click on one to enlarge (and better see the gold foil accents).

HIDDEN TREASURES IN THE OCCASIONS CATALOG

The 2018 Occasions Catalog has so many wonderful new products that it is easy to overlook some of them! While the stamp images and thinlit/framelit shapes tend to jump off the page, some tools and embellishments may get "lost" among all the goodies pictured.

With all the Sale-a-Bration products available now, it is the perfect time to take another look at the Occasions Catalog for any must-have products you've missed!

Today, I am highlighting the new EMBOSSING FOLDERS. I absolutely love using these to add texture and dimension to my projects. Plus, this is one of the quickest and easiest way to take a simple project to another level. All you need to use any embossing folder is the Big Shot machine!

NEW EMBOSSING FOLDERS
145648  SIMPLE STRIPES
The Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is shown on page 5 of the Occasions Catalog 2018, on the bottom left corner.
 It is a 6" x 6" folder. $8.50.
NOTE: The Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon (pictured next to this folder) is not available due to manufacturing issues.

145649  SCATTERED SEQUINS
The Scattered Sequins Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is shown on page 13 of the Occasions Catalog 2018, on the bottom right corner. 
It is a 6" x 6" folder. $10.
 The Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders are shown on page 23 of the Occasions Catalog 2018, on the right side, under the images for the Petal Palette stamp set. 
Each folder is 6 1/2" x 2 1/4" and they are a set for $9. 

NEW FOLDER IN SALE-A-BRATION!
You can also EARN the newest dynamic embossing folder as a Sale-a-Bration reward! The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle SAB reward, which is part of the second release products (see my previous post, which also has a video featuring this bundle).
 
Folder is 4 1/2" x 6 3/16"
DYNAMIC folders are thicker than regular folders and create deeper impressions in the cardstock. They work best with the thick white or vanilla cardstock, Shimmery White or colored cardstocks.

The Blossoming Basket stamp set is included in the bundle with the Basket Weave embossing folder. The bundle is free with a $100 product order. You can choose either wood mount or clear mount stamps!

YEAR END SALE & HOLIDAY CATALOG CARRY OVER LIST!

The November Extravaganza sale is over...but don't be sad because there is a new sale!
 We also have the list of items retiring from the Holiday Catalog - so check it carefully to be sure you don't miss out on something on your wish list.
BEFORE YOU LOOK AT THE LIST
some FYIs:
  • There is ONE list showing BOTH sale and retiring items.
  • Not all retiring items are on sale.
  • ALL the Holiday Catalog Bundle deals are retiring, BUT NOT ALL PRODUCTS IN THE BUNDLES ARE RETIRING (in other words, some products offered in bundles are carrying over and will still be available at their individual prices)
    Be sure to note the starred *** items on the list and the footnotes. These highlight retiring BUNDLES, but some or all the products in the bundles are carrying over. Look through the list for products in bundles to determine if they are retiring.
  • Products carrying over will still be available after January 2 when the Holiday Catalog retires.
  • Everything on the list except the last two items are in the Holiday Catalog. Gold Glitter and 1/8" Gold Ribbon from the Annual Catalog are on sale. They are not retiring at this time.
For the PDF list of retiring product with sale items included, click HERE

 WHAT IS CARRYING OVER??
If it is NOT on the retiring list, then it is carrying over!
