Organized Swaps: New Stamp set from New Catalog

I participated in an organized swap for the new catalog. The swap challenge was to create 20 full cards using a new stamp set. I decided to feature the "Around the Corner" stamp set. The images on this set are so cute. I decided that I wanted to use the One Sheet Wonder technique as my inspiration; however, this stamp set don't have a coordinating designer series paper. So thinking outside the box I created my own custom designer series paper (DSP).  I wanted my color to bright and festive, so I chose Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Mint Macaron and Whisper White.

3. Punch  2" circle using whisper white card stock

Thursday Treasure: Paper Share


2018 -  Annual Catalog Paper Share



The brand new Annual catalog will launch on June 1st, 2018.  The new catalog is filled with lots of awesome product.  The new designer series paper is absolutely gorgeous and you're going to love it. I wanted everyone to be able to share these great products but at a discount, so I'm hosting my very first Paper Share.   

What is a paper share?
It’s a way for you to experience and enjoy all the new designer series paper by sharing the cost with others! 

Here’s is how it works:
Send me an email to reserve your share and I will send you a PayPal invoice as soon as I get a group of 4 people interested in the share.  I will order the paper stacks of designer series paper from  the new Stampin' Up catalog,  cut, package, label and ship each person their shares. You will receive your order within 7-10 days once I receive the product from Stampin’ Up! In the event there’s a DSP backorder I will let you know immediately.  

What you get!
You will receive samples of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stacks on pages 188-191. The paper comes in 6”x 6” and 12’ x 12”.  The number in the parenthesis indicates how many pieces you will receive and all the paper is double-sided.
