Product Shares & Designer Series Paper Swatch Books (August-December 2020 Mini Catalog)

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 August – December 2020 Mini Catalog.  What fun!  This catalog is packed with amazing, new products – and I’m thrilled to share them with you.

August - December 2020 Mini CatalogIt’s gorgeous, right?! Just wait until you see everything that’s inside. 🙂

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 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 or after July 28).
  • On August 4, 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 August – December 2020 Mini Catalog Product Share offerings in a tidy, printable .pdf:

There are a lot of options to choose from (not only are there lots of new papers in the new catalog, but there are several returning favorites, too!) Please read through the options carefully before selecting.

The “I Want it All” Share is the best option of them all! The “I Want it All” Share includes ALL of the items from all of the options (Swatch Books, Papers, Ribbons and Embellishments) at a $10 discount and no additional charge for shipping.  In addition, every I Want it All Share will receive a FREE GIFT FROM ME (along with my undying affection)!

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 2020 Annual Catalog, you will receive 10 books filled with the new and gorgeous papers that I have cut and labeled just for you.

Here’s a look at the new Designer Series Paper Swatch Books:

There are three Returning Favorites from the 2019 Holiday Catalog. If you ordered books from me last year, then you might not want to pay for a new set, but I’m offering them for just $5 as an addition the swatch books from this year’s catalog. Here’s a look at these three books:

I store my books in a little tin on the edge of my desk – it’s such an easy reference tool when I’m creating! Here’s a look at last year’s Annual Catalog papers in my little tin:

Here’s why you need these Designer Series Paper Swatch Books (if you didn’t already know):

  • If you are a stamper or card designer:
    • These books are a perfect reference guide for your DSP 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 books make it easy for you to flip through to see all 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.

    • These swatch books are perfect for showcasing the beautiful DSP to your party guests, club members and customers.  They will buy more DSP when they can see it and touch it – I promise!

    • They are lightweight and portable, so you can easily take them with you wherever you go.

  2. I bought the DSP swatch books from the annual catalog.. and I LOVE them. They’re perfect to see all the fantastic papers SU has! Bonus is that I can look on the inside cover for matching CS colors! I don’t have to pull out my DSP to look! Super handy!

    Good morning, Brian!
    Your product shares are such a great way to get a taste of the new DSPs, ribbons, and embellishments! You do such a lovely job. And they arrive in perfect shape, too. The swatch books incorporate the names of the coordinating cardstock which is an added bonus and not just for demonstrators. I love them. Thank you for the hard work you do to offer this product!

  6. Brian, thanks for always offering these wonderful product shares and making it so easy to have a little of each catty! You rock!

  7. Thank you Brian for offering your shares. I’ve been buying them from you for years and love, love, love them.

  8. Brian does a fabulous job with his product shares. Everything always comes neatly packaged and it sure beats buying all these items individually plus it gives you a great idea of what products you truly love and would love to purchase. Thank you, Brian for offering this.

  9. I love Brian’s paper shares. I have been purchasing them for years. He charges a fair price and puts a lot of time and effort into the paper share. You get a superior product for a fair price. I look forward to these shares when they are offered.

  10. I was so happy to see that Brian is offering his product shares once again. They are awesome and each time I have to check the I want it all box — because I do! Believe me, you will never be disappointed in being able to try before you buy and I, too, keep the DSP swatch books on my desk for quick reference and what colors coordinate with the DSP. Thanks, Brian.

  11. I remember way back when I first saw these advertised and couldn’t imagine wanting/needing these small pieces of papers instead of the 6 x 6 shares I was also seeing. But once I finally ordered them, I can’t believe I waited. I have several years of these and still find myself pulling them out constantly. Anxiously look forward to getting these with each new catalog. Thanks for all the work you put into making these up for us.

  12. I love these swatch books and shares, Brian! Ever since you first offered them, I look forward to getting them. Since I never get rid of any of my SU products, the swatch books are a valuable resource to find what I want from my retired dsp. Please continue them!

  13. Katherine Anderson

    Brian’s swatches and shares are the BEST! I LOVE getting a sample of everything and the cost is soooo reasonable. It helps me get a much better feel of which ones I want mor of. Keep it up Brian ?

  14. I just wanted to say that I have bought several shares and items from Brian. Brian always does such a wonderful job of packaging, and he makes sure everything is there and perfect. Brian is honest and really nice to deal with. It is always so nice to have a little taste of everything in each share. Thanks, Brian.

    I use the swatch books for my customers to see our beautiful Designer Series Papers up close. It’s essential for them to see exactly what the are getting & is usually the difference maker in their decision making.

    One suggestion: Add the price of the paper pack to make it easier for them when writing their order. I have been handwriting price in the back of each collection.

  16. It’s one of my favorite things – Brian’s Swatch Books!!
    There’s Nothing better than to have the samples of ALL Designer Series Papers! They will become your best friend when card making or scrapbooking. So easy to actually see the paper up close and personal.
    And don’t forget that all of the coordinating colors are listed on the back of each Swatch Book!
    Thanks Brian for all your hard work and for offering these in your Product Shares!
    I Love them!

  17. Ordered mine today. I love your shares because they are so well thought out. I display them on my table and my customers and team members really look forward to seeing them. Has increased my paper sales too! ♥️?

  18. Just signed up for my umpty-eleventh swatch book/paper share order from Brian. What an awesome way to see in person what you love, and what you want to order more of! Thanks Brian for all your hard work in putting these together and getting them out to everyone.

Brian definitely goes above and beyond with his shares, I highly recommend them!
