I’m getting really excited about Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog. Not only have I already made my complete wish list of all the things I need from this new book (I’m going to have to order in stages to get everything I want), but I’m excited to see what my team and my customers will be ordering (and loving), too.
Some of my customers have started to receive their new catalogs – and the feedback has been wonderful. As others start to receive theirs, I’m sure I’ll hear from them,too. While I can’t share the inside of the catalog online just yet, I am able to show the front of the catalog (nothing new). Today I’m sharing some of the projects featured on the cover and what colors or new products were used to make each one. What fun!
First things first. Here’s a look at the cover of Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog:
Isn’t that gorgeous?! With this cover design, Stampin’ Up! has created a rainbow of stamped images, papers, ribbons and embellishments that surround it’s big, bold logo. The Night of Navy logo takes center stage on this cover, but the surrounding elements really stand out.
Here’s a closer look at each of the six colors featured on the cover of this catalog, including some of the products featured in each section:
This 3″ x 3″ note card showcases one of my “I can’t wait to order it” items in this new catalog – the Darling Label Punch Box. This punch box includes a 6-piece photopolymer stamp set, a clear stamp block, Grapefruit Grove and Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Spots, a Darling Label punch and an 8″ x 8″ x 3″ tin to hold all of those things. The tin is designed with gold and Night of Navy. The floral image in one of the stamps in this punch box, and the shape is the Darling Label punch. Not only does this card feature the punched shape on the sentiment, but the entire background of the card is created with the punched shape in Lovely Lipstick.
The card features a strip of Lovely Lipstick paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and a piece of Lovely Lipstick 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.
The sweet tag on the top, right of the catalog cover features a peaceful tree from the Rooted in Nature Bundle. Must have, must have, must have. The tag topper is cropped with the Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies, part of the Petal Promenade Suite – such a delicate topper for the tag. The tag is tied with a piece of Silver & Whisper White Baker’s Twine and a piece of Grapefruit Grove 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.
I love the base of this card, too, that’s created with a page from Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper – such beautiful texture. The adorable Grapefruit Grove paper clip is found in the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.
How gorgeous is the yellow flower that graces the right side of the Stampin’ Up! logo? This image is snipped from the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper, a lightweight, delicate paper with beautiful color washes that coordinates with the Tea Room Suite of products. The pack of paper includes 24 sheets (4 each of 6 double-sided designs) and is light enough for card accents, envelopes and envelope liners.
Close by – Right below the flower is a Grapefruit Grove Tinted Faceted Button, a translucent colored button. The buttons come in a pack of 24 (8 each of three colors in 2 sizes – Call Me Clover, Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove.
Not only does this 3″ x 3″ card showcase the gorgeous, new Granny Apple Green color, but it offers another look at the Rooted in Nature Bundle. The sentiment, one of my favorites, is from this must-have set as are the gorgeous leaves on either side of the sentiment. leaves and sentiment. The new Leaves Trinkets are on display here, too. The Leaves Trinkets coordinate with the Nature’s Poem Suite of products and include 24 pieces (6 each of 2 designs in two colors).
The card is accented with piece of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon – I love the white stitched edges on this gorgeous ribbon!
Close by – right below this card is another Tinted Faceted Button – this one is Call Me Clover.
The Coastal Cabana portion of the cover gives us another peek at the Darling Label Punch Box (this stamped sentiment is one of the six stamps in the coordinating set) and the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper (the flower is nipped from a page of this paper). The Coastal Cabana Stitched Shapes circle also showcases a piece of Coastal Cabana and copper ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack. The pack contains two spools with 5 yards of ribbon on each spool – one is Very Vanilla/copper 1/8″ ribbon, and the other is Coastal Cabana/copper 1/8″ ribbon.
Close by – Just above the Coastal Cabana tag is a Coastal Cabana doily. The doily is part of a set of Colored Doilies, a package of 24 doilies (six each of four colors). The other colors in the pack are Flirty Flamingo, Grapefruit Grove and Old Olive.
How beautiful is the Fresh Fig Flower on the left side of the catalog cover?! The flower is stamped from the Healing Hugs stamp set, a new DistINKtive image. Remember the Heartfelt Blooms stamp from the 2018 Sale-a-Bration brochure? This flower stamp is designed with a similar process to lay down the ink at different opacities to give great depth to the image.
Close by – Leaves from the Rooted in Nature Bundle are shown just above (and a little to the left of) the flower.
I hope you enjoyed this walkthrough of the images and colors on the face of this new catalog. Can’t wait to hear what your favorites are on the inside pages of this amazing book.
