They’re Here! 2016 Occasions Catalog Product Shares & DSP Swatch Books

Today is going to be SUPER-FUN! It’s time to roll out my Product Shares and Designer Series Paper Swatch Books for the 2016 Occasions Catalog.  What fun!  I’m so excited about the release of Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Occasions Catalog – and it coincides with the launch of Sale-a-Bration.  Does it get any better than that?  I’m excited to share this new catalog with you – you have impeccable taste, so I know you are going to love it as much as I do.  🙂


With the launch of each catalog, I host product shares that give you the opportunity to take the amazing papers, ribbons and accessories for a test drive before you decide which ones you can’t live without – and there are A LOT of new items you can’t live without.  What is  product share?  Here’s a little cartoon I created a while back to help explain how a product share works (read down the first column and then down the second):

What is a Product Share?, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingDoes that help?  I thought it would.  🙂

Now that you are fully versed on what shares and swatch books are, here’s how the process works:

  • Sign up for a spot in one (or more) of the below product shares (form below).
  • I will bill you through PayPal when all four seats in your share are filled (starting December 29).
  • Starting January 5, I’ll place an order for the closed out/paid shares.
  • Once I receive the product, I’ll divide it up and ship it straight to you.
  • You will smile.

Designer Series Paper Swatch Books

With the release of each catalog, I create Designer Series Paper Swatch Books – and I love to share them with you.  Here’s what you get with the Designer Series Paper Swatch Books from the 2016 Occasions Catalog:

And here’s why you need them:

  • If you are a stamper or card designer:
    • These books are a perfect reference guide for the DSPs while you are creating beautiful projects – quickly pick the colors and patterns you want to use.
    • The staggered pages on the Designer Series Paper and Specialty Designer Series Paper books make it easy for you to flip through the colors and patterns.
    • The books are small enough to sit at the edge of your desk – they won’t ever get in the way. I store mine in a cute metal bucket.  It goes where I go.
    • All the coordinating colors on the back of the books. How nice!
  • If you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator:
    • These swatch books are perfect for showcasing the beautiful DSPs to your party guests and customers.  They will buy more DSP when they can see it.
    • The staggered pages make it very easy for your customers to flip through so they can easily see both front and back of the DSP.
    • The swatch books are a perfect gift for your party hosts, your best customers or your hard-working team members.

  1. My order is in. Thanks for sharing the shares! Happy New year!

  2. Could you please tell me what size your swatch books are? I’m guessing 6″ x 3″ but I don’t want to assume. Thanks!

    • Hi Joyce, Thank you so much for the question. The two Designer Series Paper Swatch Books and the Specialty Designer Series Paper Swatch Book measures 3″ x 6-1/2″ – each has six pages that are staggered by 1/4″. The four Designer Series Paper Stack Swatch Books measure 3″ x 6″ – each has twelve pages that are not staggered. I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
