Oh my goodness! It’s almost time to share the new annual catalogue with the world! In the Stampin’ Up! world, this is one of the most exciting times of the year because a huge range of brand new stamp sets, in-colours, designer series papers, ribbons, trims, framelits, thinlits etc. become available.
As Independent Demonstrators, we’ve come together to offer you all a sneak peek of some of the many new products that will be available for you to purchase in just a few days time. You might be starting this blog hop with me, or perhaps you’ve hopped over from Renee’s brilliant blog post. Regardless, enjoy the journey through, and feel free to leave a comment 😊
At first glance, the Pieces & Patterns stamp set and Pick a Pattern DSP may not look like much, but I saw potential – my first instinct was to create a mini notebook cover and matchbox-style pencil case.
It took me ages to get the measurements just right, but the end result is a cute gift ready to give!

- Pick a Pattern DSP
- Emerald Envy and Whisper White cardstock
- Flirty Flamingo ink pad
- Stitched Shapes framelits
After making that, I became inspired to create another pencil box, but this time I used the new hostess stamp set Feathery Friends and made some note cards to go with it.
The note cards have been stamped with Basic Black ink in two different designs, with the idea being to gift these. The receiver can colour them with the pencils provided, then send them with a note on the back. Who doesn’t love receiving snail mail!?
I used all the new 2017-2019 in-colour markers alongside the 2016-2018 in-colour markers to colour the design on the pencil box.
Tip: if you’re right-handed, colour from left to right to avoid smudging your work (vice-versa for left-handers).
Finally, I tied the note cards into a neat bundle with some new Lemon Lime Twist ribbon.
