2019 Occasions Catalog Product Shares & Designer Series Paper Swatch Books

We are ONE WEEK AWAY from the release of Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration! I guess that means it’s time to release my Product Shares from the new catalog. Yay!

Does your heart go pitter-patter when you flip through a new catalog for the first time? Does the excitement of ordering new products make you smile? Do you sniffle when you unpack your boxes of brand new Stampin’ Up! goodies? Well, today might be your day! It’s time for me to roll out my Product Shares and Designer Series Paper Swatch Books for Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog. What fun! This catalog is packed with amazing, new products – and I’m thrilled to share them with you.

Product Shares

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 in this book that you can’t live without.  What is a product share?  Here’s a little cartoon I created a while back to help explain how a product share works:

Product Shares, Brian King 5 Stampin' Up! Product Shares, Brian King 6Now that you are fully versed on what shares are (you are so smart and learn so fast), here’s how the process for these shares works:

  • Sign up for a spot in one (or more) of the product shares – I’ve included a handy registration form at the base of this post.
  • I will bill you through PayPal when all seats in your share are filled.
  • On January 3, I’ll place an order for the closed out (and paid) shares.
  • Once I receive the product, I’ll quickly divide it up and ship it straight to you.
  •  I will smile, and you will smile.  We’ll be very happy people.

I can’t wait for you to take part in these shares – trust me when I say you’ll WANT IT ALL, and it’s worth every penny.  Here are my 2019 Occasions Catalog Product Share offerings in a tidy, printable .pdf:

You Want it All. The “I Want it All” Share includes ALL of the items from all of the options (Papers, Ribbons & Embellishments and Swatch Books), a big savings and no additional charge for shipping. In addition, everyone who chooses the I Want it All Share will receive:

  • a Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper Swatch Book
  • a small gift from me
  • my undying affection (and that’s priceless)!

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. With your purchase of Designer Series Paper Swatch Books from the 2019 Occasions Catalog, you will receive seven books (1 Specialty Designer Series Paper book, 1 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper book and 5 Designer Series Paper Books) filled with the new and gorgeous papers, all cut and labeled just for you.

Here’s a look at the some of the books in the 2019 Occasions Catalog Designer Series Paper Swatch Books:

  • If you are a stamper or card designer:
    • These books are a perfect reference guide for your DSPs while you are busy creating beautiful projects – quickly pick the colors and patterns you want to use.
    • All the coordinating colors are included on the back of the books. How nice!
    • 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 in the Fungeon.
  • If you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator:
    • These swatch books are perfect for showcasing the beautiful DSPs to your party guests, club members and customers.  They will buy more DSP when they can see it and touch it – I promise!
    • The staggered pages make it very easy for your customers to flip through so they can easily see both the front and back of the DSP.
    • They are lightweight and portable, so you can easily take them with you wherever you go.
    • The swatch books are a perfect gift for your party hosts, your best customers or your hard-working team members. Feel free to order multiples! <3

  1. I seriously love the swatch books. They are awesome for my customers to peruse while deciding which DSP(s) to purchase. Thanks Brian!

  2. Thanks, Brian, for offering your swatch books again. My customers and club members always love to look at the new papers “hands-on” because as we all know the photos in the catalog don’t do the papers justice. BTW, your Holiday Catalog swatch books saved my life this year. I ran short of some papers for my Christmas projects, and your swatch books came to the rescue!

  4. Hi Brian. I’m ordering a second set of swatch books. We have a vacation home that I love to go & just do intense stamping work so it’s nice to have the dsp inspiration on hand. Just wanted you to know that I was intending to order a second set…not just my forgetfulness! Thanks so much. I love them!!

    • I love that idea, Beth, and have sent another PayPal invoice! I’m so happy you like them so much – I use them all the time. ♥ Maybe you need a set for your car or to give to friends? They make wonderful gifts. 🙂

  5. Just ordered my swatch books. I love them and you do such a wonderful job at coordinating them all. My team and clients love to see and feel the papers and you’re right, it really DOES help sell more DSP . Thanks and Happy New Year, my cool friend.
