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.

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. 

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!

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).
