New SU Catalogue launching May 1st


As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, one of the best perks is being able to preorder a selection of new products in the brand-new annual catalogue! I know - it's fantastic!


       Well, my preorder arrived but I have been so swamped getting ready to see my new grandson that I haven't had any time to play. I can't say "work" as it's such fun opening all the packets, reordering products in my craft room and going through all the DSP (that's shorthand for designer series paper, just in case you wondered). 

        The first products I opened were the new 2024-2026 In-Colour cardstock, inkpads and 6 x 6 DSP - Just sooo pretty!!! If you haven't ever used SU, you might not know that everything matches and coordinates - if you buy the ink pads then it's just the right shade to go with the cardstock and papers, the Blends =  alcohol markers, water-based Stampinwrite markers, embellishments and, well, everything! (Mind blown???? )

        Today, I am showcasing one of the easiest cards I have ever made to show off these new In-colours and I chose  "Shy Shamrock". The 5 new colours are called         


            Peach Pie, 

            Petunia Pop, 

            Pretty in Pink, 

            Shy Shamrock,

            Summer Splash. 



All the DSP is double-sided so in my packet of 40 papers, there are 2 designs in each of the 5 colours, repeated x 4 to make 40 sheets, which means it goes a very long way. I added a small strip of Glimmer paper, and 3 Resin Dots and stamped off the circle with part of the Thoughtful Wishes stamp set. Cards like these will go out to my customers who buy through my SU store in May. They may be a little late (as I have a few new baby cuddles to catch up on first) but I am sure my customers will understand! 


Here are the products in the new catalogue together with the order numbers:
        Mixed pack of 20 A4 sheets of new in-colour cardstock (4 per colour)                                         #163804          £10.75
        6 x 6 DSP  40 sheets #163777    £11.75
       12 x 12  5 sheets in colour Glimmer paper #163771 £10.25
        Ink pads are available individually or as a colour family bundle 

                                   #165058        £38.25
        Thoughtful wishes stamp set #163305 £31.00 or available as a bundle with         the  dies and 10% saving #163314 £68.25
